Oyster Hotel Review
Large camping village popular mainly with families
The main reception area is spartan and elegant, reminiscent of Greek island architecture with vast expanses of stone and graphic white architecture. The rest of the campsite, apart from the impressive pool, is more typical, with closely clustered sites, bungalows, mobile homes, and caravans. Families with children constitute a large percentage of the visitors here. While the sea is only about a half kilometer, multiple guests have noted that the path joining the beach to the campsite is not well maintained, and could be difficult for those with limited mobility (including parents with strollers).
About 500 meters from the Tyrrhenian Sea and a five-minute drive to the seaside town of Castiglione della Pescaia
Depending on where one is within the campsite, the beach can be between a 10 and 20-minute walk. If proximity to the beach is a primary concern, Campeggio Santapomata, which is within a couple of kilometers, has lower-end facilities but is closer to the shore. The tiny seaside town of Castiglione della Pescaia, built around a medieval fortress, is about seven kilometers away and accessible via public bus.
Considerable size and quality variation amongst bungalows, mobile homes, and caravans
For those choosing to rent, rather than pitch their own tent, there are a variety of options, which vary widely, according to guests, in size and quality. The newer, deluxe bungalows are quite large, with Ikea-style furniture, poured concrete floors, and separate bedrooms. There are smaller, “superior” bungalows that are also nice, with wood floors. Guests have complained about several things repeatedly, including that the kitchens are not particularly well-stocked (no cutlery), the lower-rate bungalows are on the small side, and cleaning can be spotty. The smaller, older bungalows draw some criticisms for mustiness; some have additionally remarked that bungalows can be close together, meaning there is noise from neighbors.
An architecturally impressive pool, various activities for children and adults, and a variety of sports options
The large, architecturally impressive pool is the focal point of the facility, and the area around which much of the organized activities take place. The pool itself slopes gradually at one end, and has several boardwalk bridges as well as an area shaded by built-in parasols. A club card, available for a daily fee assessed per encampment, is required for pool and spa access; the sun beds incur a small extra cost. There is a small store with basic food and accessory necessities, as well as a Turkish bath, tennis courts, and a simple restaurant overlooking the pool that receives generally good reviews from guests. Wi-Fi is available for a fee; many have noted connectivity is poor.
