You will not find a better place to stay, and a kinder manager/owner than Sandro at the Alla Marina in Riomaggiore. He makes sure every detail is taken care of, responds to any and all questions quickly and efficiently on email, and offers to meet you at the train to escort you to his wonderful rooms in this beautiful little...

Alla Marina is a terrific place with a great view. The breakfast is fine and there is a kettle in the room which is hard to find in Europe. Sandro is a wonderful host and looked after us very well: he meets you at the station and shows you to the rooms as well as recommending various things to do.... More

Amazing, amazing, amazing! Beautiful and clean! Breathtaking view! Centrally located to the Riomaggiore train station. Sandro and his mother were lovely! Sandro met us at the train station and personally walked us to the apartment and gave us the walk through. The deck overlooks the harbor and sea! Great location! The apartment was equipped with plenty of cooking utensils and... More

I stayed here for 2 nights with my girlfriend, we check in on sept 2nd and checked out on the 4th, Would've extended our stay but Sandro had advised that the rooms were booked but he did not hesitate to find me another accommodation for my third night. He is an extremely great host, great advice on the local area... More

Beautifully renovated cliff house overlooking the dock in Riomaggore. Contemporary decor which blended into the rustic area right down to the stone tiles surrounding the bathroom. Enjoy breakfast overlooking the view from your window. Every detail was provided for ... seriously there were even clothes pins if you wanted to dry your swimsuit. Our host Sandro could not have been... More

The room is newly renovated. Sandra is very helpful and will happily meet you at the train when you arrive. Accommodation is a short walk from the train with no hills. The apartments are an easy walk from the train,town and water. I would definitely stay here again.

Thank you Sandro for an amazing visit to Riomaggiore at your apartment! My boyfriend and I stayed three nights here with another couple and it wasn't enough! Sandro met us at the train station and showed us to the apartment giving us tips along the way. He showed us around the two bedroom apartment, how everything worked and told us... More

My wife and I stayed here for three nights in March, and I feel guilty for waiting so long to post because Sandro deserves all the praise he seems to receive on Tripadvisor. He is a welcoming host who has obvious pride in his rooms and in Cinque Terre. His advice was spot on regarding everything from restaurants to trails,... More

I would agree with all the praise this place has received, the only disappointment was the breakfast which was virtually non existant, just a prepackaged croisant which we couldn’t eat, plus some stale corn flakes, no bowls to eat the cereal in, packet coffee and powdered milk. There were some food items left in the fridge which were included. The... More

This is a fantastic place to stay. It is near the train station and getting there is quite easy (We came across other locations that looked terrible to get to due to all the stairs; we had two large suite cases so this was a concern for us). The owner Sandro came and met us at the train station which... More
