Extraordinary staff, big thank you especially Barbara from the restaurant and Chiara from the reception. One word of advise do not take a taxi from Pisa aero port to the hotel as it cost us 80 Euros, where you could take the shuttle bus to Pisa Central train station and a direct train to the hotel for 9 Euros and 10 Euros from the station to the hotel .

I and my family have stayed at the Royal a number of times over many years, and while it was quite a different experience in the 90s (particularly where the food was concerned and no inclusive use of beach facilities), it has retained its charm and slightly faded elegance. It is a lovely hotel with a lovely, peaceful garden with a very clean pool, table tennis. croquet and pool café, which had snacks and drinks at very reasonable prices. The room we were allocated (411) was very large, well appointed and spotlessly clean, and quiet. Bed was huge but a bit hard for us. We requested a high floor, quiet location and got it. The staff were all great as usual. We will return.
Let me start by saying that the hotel is very beautiful and nice. Some of the staff are nice and friendly, and some of the others were completely rude. They gave the impression that they did not like Americans. The hotel structure is very confusing, and we could not find anyone to help at all. Most of the time the staff would just speak in Italian and walk away. We called about our tv not working, and no one came to fix it, our door handle broke off, again no one fixed it, and many events along this line. They were very helpful however in finding trains times ect. There is a big variety for the breakfast, but the cooked food was almost inedible. The eggs one morning had a fishy smell, so thank goodness for the fruits and cereals! The coffee was also undrinkable. Old coffee sitting in a heated pot. Most of the time we were outside of the hotel. The beach is not connected to the hotel, but just across the street. We went to Patrizia and they were wonderful! Great service, food, and people. It cost $30 a day to rent a cabana with a discount from the hotel. The hotel is a great distant away from other great destinations. Although the service was not great, I recommend the hotel for location and a nice place to stay.
The name of an ancient principality on the borders of north-western Tuscany and Liguria now refers to a 30 km coastal strip between the Gulf of Spezia and Torre del Lago Puccini. Flat, straight beaches of soft sand set with sun loungers and parasols roll past a seamless series of small resorts, including Viareggio and Forte dei Marmi. Inland, the jagged Apuan Mountains rise steeply to high forests past the glittering Carrara marble quarries.
