I was fortunate enough to have stayed here for a few days as a surprise. Well my partner got full marks for finding a spot of paradise, even if it did break the bank! Romantic, luxurious, lush, verdant, immaculate, beautiful are but a few words to describe it. The service was excellent and friendly, the food wonderfully fresh and not... More

Charming, romantic and very well maintained property. Quiet. Beautiful views. Rooms are original, and differ in layout. Stay in my room felt like being in a XIX century lifestyle dollhouse (peaceful, decorated with romantic details). Not crowded. Very expensive. Memorable experience.

The Belmond Splendido Hotel is a mythical location in Portofino, and its promises are well hold ! This great hotel, keeping its 50s/60s ambiance, but with a renewed level of amenities, is offering a charming stay, among the souvenir of the superstars it used to host from the "golden" times. The hotel is very comfortable, the restaurant part is excellent,... More

What a treat this was. We could only stay one night as we were driving through but the detour was worth it! And then some. Old school perfection without being stuffy or pretentious.

The Splendido is in a class of it's own. The setting and views are stunning, the hotel facilities are as good as you find anywhere. The rooms are the template of what a luxury room should be. The staff set the highest standards of service, nothing is too much trouble. Having breakfast on the terrace overlooking Portofino harbour is bound... More

We have visited Portofino several times and have previously stayed at the Splendido's main hotel on the hill. We decided this time to try the Splendido Mare and couldn't have been more delighted with our choice. I had read a few reviews which unfavourably compared the Mare with its bigger sister hotel but this was not our experience at all.... More

No doubt the Belmond Hotel Splendido is one of the most beautiful places we have stayed with its unmatched views of the Portofino harbor.

We stayed in Portofino for the weekend and went to have lunch at the Hotel Belmond. Portion as such is absolutely stunning but when standing on the hotel terrace, the area seems to become even more enchanting and beautiful. The view from there is simply amazing definitely worth visiting the hotel or better even staying at the hotel.
