Absolutely loved everything about this spot! Our room was clean & comfortable with a spectacular view of the ocean. Great value, great location. The owner was awesome & super helpful. Best of all...one of the only spot in Riomaggiori with PARKING! The owner personally drops you off & picks you up from the front door step. Keeps your car in... More

Located up above the main part of the city with terrific ocean and town views all the way down to the small port. We bought groceries at one of the tiny stores, local wine, cheese, lemon and other fruits. Maricella, the owner, was really helpful in showing us around, helping open up all the windows and getting us a reservation... More

We spent two nights there at the beginning of August 2014. It was a great pleasure doing business with the owner. She is very helpful, very knowledgeable and kind. We (a couple) booked 3 days in advance and we paid via PayPal the deposit. There was no problem when we arrived, the deposit was deducted from our entire accommodation fee.... More

La Baia di Rio is a gem in lovely Riomaggiore. My daughter and I stayed in the Abel Talsman room. The balcony view was breathtaking - especially when the moon was full or a thunderstorm rolled in. The owners are VERY helpful with ideas of things to do and see. Note that breakfast is not included and there is not... More

Our stay at La Baia di Rio was wonderful! The rooms were clean and lovely. Maristella was incredible! She treated us like family and helped us feel like we lived in beautiful Riomaggiore. It felt like home! We were disappointed to find one of the walking paths closed, but Maristella suggested that we take a boat ride. It was delightful!... More

This was our first time in Cinque Terre, and Maristella, the owner of La Baia di Rio provided us with a fantastic room, view, location, and advises. Maristella is a very dynamic and fast thinking woman, thanks to her advises we spent two fantastic days and visited all the 5 towns, ate at a great restaurant in Riomaggiore and enjoyed... More

Riomaggiore and Cinque Terre was the first stop on a 4 week italian vacation for us. And the Baia di Rio was a little slice of heaven to start this vacation right! Emiliano greeted us, gave great information about the town, things to do and restaurants to try. The Marco Polo room was spacious, clean and bright. And the view... More

Stayed two nights - one night in the Marco Polo room and one night in the Cristoforo Colombo room. The Marco Polo room is worth every penny and offers a great view and a kitchenette. The Cristoforo Colombo room was a solid value and also offered a good view, but the balcony is shared with another room which made it... More

We are a family of 4 and stayed in the second location of Baia di Rio, the 4 person room that is part of the owner's house. It was a large room with a queen sized bed and 2 singles, perfect for us and our 2 teenage sons. There's a large balcony that offers a great view, albeit with a... More

Fabulous, fabulous, fabulous! Reasonably priced, spotlessly clean. Balcony that has amongst the best views in all directions across Riomagiorre and the Adriatic. The mood and colours of the town, reflect the ever changing light and sky! The owner prides herself on making her guest's stay as comfortable and as rich an experience as possible. She gave us excellent directions to... More
