We stayed here for 4 nights in June after attending a wedding in Florence, we arrived by train which was really easy, and walked to the hotel.
The hotel is in a great position with lovely views (we had a seaview room!) the communal areas were always clean and staff were really friendly and helpful throughout our stay.
We had come to Lavagna to relax, with a little sight seeing. The use of the pool at the sports club was a real bonus and most of the day it was really quiet - afternoons were busier with school children. We often had the area for the hotel guests to ourselves, it would be good if snacks were available but we easily walked into the town when we got hungry.
The room was comfy and quiet, can't fault the facilities. Breakfast was varied and as well as the coffee machine you could ask for a latte or espresso. We really enjoyed the Aperitivo where cocktails and snacks were served from 6pm, we found we didn't need to go out for dinner after having a late lunch one day!
it's a good base to explore the area too, trains are cheap and regular to get to the beautiful villages along the coast.
