My mother an I stayed in this beautiful hotel for 3 nights at the end of April. We loved everything about it. We were very lucky to have an amazing room on the top floor and views over the sea, it was like something out of a brochure! There have been a few comments about the location of the hotel being poor as it is a little out of town, but this only added to why we loved it. It's a lovely 10 minute walk along the seafront to the town and we really enjoyed doing it every day. We didn't use the pool or the restaurant as we were too busy exploring the local area, but the breakfast was superb. Heaps of choice (I'm a vegetarian) and the staff were always lovely, and probably the best coffee we've ever had in a hotel for breakfast! We are very grateful to the staff for making sure our stay was so memorable (and giving us such a fantastic room!), we'd love to stay again.

Good quality hotel, excellent staff, especially head barman and reception staff. Fine dining, great swimming pool. Ideally situated for walking to Portofino....bit of a trek but worth the effort, or taking train to Monte Rossi then into cinque terre. There is off street parking for 16eu per day.

Wedding function at hotel so top floor restaurant was not available to residents nor was majority of the bar terrace - paying hotel residents were squeezed onto a side terrace. Sun bathing residents were on the deck right in front of the wedding party who occupied the majority of the bar area so that was awkward!! And loud yes really loud music played throughout the hotel, so retreating to the bar inside or back to your room did not avoid the ridiculously loud music that went on for hours throughout the afternoon and early evening. Forced to go out of the hotel to eat so who know what tonight will hold when the wedding party moves to the upstairs restaurant - which as it is a hot Saturday night would have been great. But oh no we are after all only paying hotel guests. Shame as the hotel is nice , superior room was lovely with good sized bathroom. albeit the hotel is a walk from the centre but has good views provided you have a sea view room and can sit on the balcony. So the management should consider rebating all those residents who were not involved in the wedding party. Hotel management should also consider all paying hotel residents equal consideration rather than putting them second to a wedding party. Certainly if you were not involved in the wedding then you were at a real disadvantage.

There is everything positive about this hotel. Location, comfortable beds and fabulous restaurant. Not to mention the bar / drinks menus. Staff have been wonderful. Beautiful sunset over pool with gin and tonic.

We had a very nice 2 nights here with a group tour. Our balconies had great views, the breakfasts were superb, and it was in a lovely location. The spa was being renovated, which was a disappointment, as that would have been a treat. The rooms were spacious and clean and comfortable.
