We travelled with Jet2.com holidays, our favourite foreign holiday facilitator. We have been visiting Tuscany for 30 years, but this was our first time visiting the Tuscan coast. What a mistake that has been!! The resort of Viareggio is terrific, & the Grand Hotel Royal was an inspired choice. A beautiful sea-view room on the 5th floor afforded us the pleasure of gazing out over the pristine beach & Ligurian Sea. Facilities on the Anita beach opposite the hotel were included in our package, & we spent a lot of time soaking up the sun in style. There is also a fine swimming pool in the grounds, & obtaining a dumbed was never a problem irrespective of the time of day.
The buffet breakfast was absolutely first class, as was the evening meal included in our half-board package. Drinks & wine were most reasonably priced for a “Belle Epoque” establishment. All the staff were friendly & determined to make our stay as luxurious as possible. We will be returning next year, & probably for many years to come.More
