Historical Traveler Reviews Green Park Resort Tirrenia
Un hotel excelente
Nos hospedamos en el Green Park Resort durante una semana a finales de mayo, ¡y verdaderamente me sorprendió que era como en las fotos del sitio Web! Las habitaciones eran grandes, y estaban hermosamente terminadas. Los jardines eran hermosos, las piscinas (cubiertas y descubiertas) eran hermosas, y el personal, desde el portero hasta los recepcionistas se esforzaban mucho por ti. El servicio de limpieza iba dos veces al día, y se esforzaba tanto por hacer que tu estancia fuera especial. En resumen, ¡fue fabuloso! Los entornos no eran tan fabulosos, pero si tenías coche, era ideal. Si no quieres comer en los restaurantes cada noche, la caminata al pueblo más cercano es bastante larga. De hecho, el pueblo más cercano es Tirrenia y no Pisa. No hagas reservas aquí si deseas un lugar central, pero estoy muy contenta de que nosotros lo hicimos.
Nice room but distance from Pisa a problem
Our room was beautiful, very clean and modern and the hotel itself was ok.
An annoying factor was the fact that the air-conditioning actually blew out hot air. I later found out that all hotels in Italy do not put the air conditioning on til June. I find this unacceptable. If its hot in your room then its time to put the air-conditioning on, regardless of which month of the year it is. Nevermind trying to keep costs down.
There were 2 restaurants there which were pretentious and basically rubbish and charged over the top prices for a set menu which was insulting to all guests.
The location is far out from the airport in Pisa, and a hired car is recommended. A saving grace was the beach across the road for the hotel. Finally, dont do what we did and pay for a taxi to the airport, it will cost you! Also, there were no restaurants nearby so we basically starved when we were there.
Nice room, shame about the location.
Very nice hotel but check out the location....
Stayed at the Green Park Resort 16th - 20th April 2005. Lovely, clean over-sized rooms, delightful grounds and an extremely nice breakfast. However, be aware that it is best to have a car if you are staying at the resort because it is in the middle of nowhere and the buses from Tirrenia and Pisa stop short of the resort fairly early on. The hotel is an oasis in the middle of a bomb site - there are some lovely buildings still standing after being bombed in the 2nd World War! The area is clearly undergoing regeneration, possibly from receiving some EEC funds, and it looks like the idea is to extend the seafront area from Tirrenia down to the resort. I had an unfortunate start to my stay at the Green Park because the taxi driver dropped me off at the wrong entrance and I was stuck outside for over an hour at 2 o'clock in the morning! In view of the fact that the resort is miles from civilisation (seeing is believing), I think the reception staff should have taken heed of my story and accepted that a notice should be put on the "alternative" entrance to avoid similar mishaps for other travellers. Lovely once you get there though but be aware of problems with the location because taxi's are not cheap from Pisa to the Green Park.
Loved Green Park
Green Park is about 7 months old and located 20 minutes outside Pisa. We stayed overnight and the next day went into Pisa for the sites. Green park is a large multi building campus with at least two restaraunts and a wonderfully complete Spa. There is a large swiming pool with several special extras, hot tub, steam room, sauna, weight room, and total personal care. We were greeted at the front, made to feel at home and then given a ride touring the campus. The rooms are large and first class. The cost is just slightly above average or could be considered average. The overall facility is FIRST class and I would recommend it to anyone. Tom
Lovely and Quiet
Stayed at the Green Park Resort for 10 nights. Although a couple of km outside the main 'town' of Tirrenia, the upside of this was that the Hotel was lovely and quiet. Rooms were of a very high standard, nice and large and very reasonable (just over 100 Euro/night - inc B/fast). Only small gripe was having to pay 2 Euro per towel at the pool - why do the Italians insist on this!). As others have said, the grounds of the Hotel are well maintained and peaceful.
As were drove from Galileo airport in Pisa to Tirrenia, we were disturbed by the road we drove down to get to the resort, which seemed quite seedy with lots of building work and small B&B's.
However, we arrived at a beautiful hotel which does literally have a Green Park inside its grounds. The staff were extremely polite and welcoming and imparted all the information we needed to know as they walked us to our room. The standard room is almost as large as a suite with, a large double bed, modern decor and modern bathrooms with marble flooring.
Each morning you walk through the park to breakfast which offers a wide variety of Tuscan specialities and all other usual breakfast fare.
Our only evening meal there was an al fresco, romantic pool-side feast, on the first night and was excellent with very attentive service.
The only disappointment is that what appeared to be a fully equipped spa and gym costs Euro 20 per person per day. It is also a little bit too far from most of the major villages and towns for those who want to explore by car but it is very close to the Livorno-Pisa-Florence superstrade and two train stations.
We would stay there again.
One of the nicest in Europe
I stayed in the Green Park in Terrenia over Memorial Day weekend, 2003.
It was one of the nicest hotels that I have stayed in Europe. Service was excellent, rooms were luxuious and grounds were spectacular. At 100 Euro a night a buy and a half.
Clean, top of the line hotel. The rest of the local hotels are not even close.
Green Park a surprize
Great, clean top of the line new hotel. If you can get it for around $100 a day you will be wonderfully surprized. I have stayed there 4/5 times off season and it is worth the 3 minutes from the town and beach worn other hotels.

We have now learnt two things about the weather in this part of Italy- it knows how to be hot and it knows how to rain.
We managed to get under way soon after 08:00. The first part of the ride was on nice quiet roads through lovely countryside up to a little way beyond the lovely hilltop village of San Gimignano. We had an elevenses stop of spinach tortillas at San Gimignano.
Some way after San Gimignano the rain started - the ...
... from which I will awake, still in Spain. Yet it does exist, and I had it mostly to myself all day because not only was the easternmost (and most tourist-ed by all accounts) part of the track closed off from the main trail, it was also 39 degrees and that means hiking of any variety is apt to be graded 'see-bee-eff', in the technical parlance of the serially sedentary.
Back to Pisa then to rest my squealing trotters for the ...
We only had a few hours this morning as we had to catch a specific train to La Spezia to catch our train to Villefranche sur Mer on the French Riviera. It was mostly a long day of trains...changing at Ventimiglia. We returned to Matteo's for toast, croissants, juice and some plain yogurt that I didn't care for. We then just wandered about the little nooks and crannies of Corniglia then back to our room for our bags. Which was a good thing (this is why I like to not be ...
We had a beautiful night’s sleep listening to the rain pelting down on Lucca for most of the night …we woke up early with the sweet smell of rain all through Brunella (the rain wasnt actually through Brunella just the sweet smell) and it stayed raining for most of the day until we left for Pisa airport. (Tracey and Brendan arrive today...YAY!!!)
After breakfast, while Mary was finishing off some investigations on the ...
... we decided to grab lunch and explore the town a little bit. We stopped in a very crowded little pizzeria, thinking that it must be great if all of these people are trying to eat it! I ordered a slice with cheese and pesto, because I had heard that this region was famous for their pesto. We were right, delicious! The pesto was so fresh, and the pizza was the perfect snack to get us moving. We ate overlooking the water, and then went into a few hippie ...
