We stayed at Ondina this year in February/ March for a few weeks and we absolutely loved it. The apartment was comfortable clean, and in one of the most stunning locations imaginable. We could not have picked a better spot in a better village. The use of the common room with the deck was a special treat for us as... More

Definitely would recommend this place and would stay here again. The room was basic but had everything you could need. The communal balcony is phenomenal! The owners can be difficult to contact in regards to check in, check out and originally on arrival we didn't have any towels but besides that the apartment and stay was great!

We were very pleased with our stay at Arpaiu. It was the off season when we stayed there and had the whole place to ourselves. The view is amazing from every room. Check out my full review at eyetravelforfood.com!

I booked Arpaiu (Ziguela room) primarily for the terrace, and it did not disappoint! Well worth the hike straight up the hill with suitcases - much easier when you aren't lugging baggage with you. It was so relaxing to not even have to leave our building to take in the scenery, have coffee in the morning and a glass of... More

This is a little retreat that sits overlooking the entire shore! Every room has breathtaking views of the ocean (we stayed in Aargan and Ziguela). Aargan is a smaller room than Ziguela so if you are staying more than a night the more spacious room is better. We stayed a total of 4 nights. It was easy to communicate with... More

What a dream this place is! We wanted a relaxing stay to get away from the crowds, eat good healthy food and walk and explore each town at our leisure. Staying in Mea on Manorola was even better then we imagined. We stayed 4 nights in the Mea room which was nicely decorated, clean and very comfortable. The B &... More

I stayed at the Apt Odina in Arpiau. Apparently,Arpiau has 10 rooms in 3 different buildings very closed to each other. My apt has a nice big window facing the sea. We can use the lounge with big balcony on the roof top of main building. Wifi is free and fast. We can buy coffee for 0.80euro. The way to... More

We stayed in Ondina studio, a self-contained apartment a few doors away from the main building. Manarola was our favourite place to stay at of the five villages. Pros: Ocean front view that's unbeatable Self-contained with kitchenette and fridge Friendly honest approachable owner and room service staff Safe in the room Cons: Location is physically-challenging. Not suitable for everyone Bed... More

Bottom line: This hotel is amazing, but keep in mind that it's a no-frills setup. The location makes this hotel. It is overlooking the ocean, with an amazing shared roof deck perfect for watching the sunset. We spent a good part of the evening on the roof deck drinking wine and looking out at the beautiful scenery. It is close... More

We booked ZIGUIELA room for our stay at Manarola, Cinque Terre for 2 nights in May 2014. What a lovely place. Sunset with a glass of wine - it's a must. Room is clean and perfect for 2. Strongly recommended.
