After two lackluster days in the south of France we were so ecstatic to drive to Italy. This is not our first visit and we were spending the majority of the trip in Tuscany and Florence but our travel agent recommended we spend the night in Portofino at the Belmond Splendido. All I can say is we are so thankful... More

Step back in time as if in a Poirot moment! Elegance abounds, service is impeccable, the view of Portofino from the balcony of our immaculate room was so amazing, I sat and looked at it until 3am transfixed. This is a prestige and expensive option, but is worth every penny for a special occasion. I booked from a French number... More

In Splendido you feel like a character of those glamorous movies of year 70, the dream starts to climb a small road to arrive at the hotel, getting that beautiful view, at the moment you are welcomed by a super attentive concierge who will take you to your apartment, the view is more beautiful, and a bottle of champagne awaits...

Basically this is a really, really good hotel that gets very little wrong (well nothing at all during our stay). The staff are great, the location beautiful and the rooms fabulous.

The Splendido has an impressive reputation, and so it should! We stayed there in June for 3 nights and would have happily stayed for another week. The staff were excellent, the service impeccable and the room (a suite) first class. I cannot recommend the Splendido enough.

It is indeed splendido to stay here. Food was excellent. Room was amazing (although had to ask for a switch when originally in a tiny one). Views were picturesque. Great location to hike the cinque terre. Concierce was helpful in organizing private yachts and hiking trails and reservations. I would go back in a second. Perched on the top of... More

October can be a perfect time of the year to visit this popular hotel, the seasonal crowds and yachts are absent and the town is quiet and magically romantic. The hotel is perched on a mountainous area which offers an unparalleled panoramic view of the Mediterranean jutting from the sea. Vistas thick with natural landscape fill your senses with explosion... More

Amazing rooms and food. Great trails and pool. Also one funny time, on the trail, we were crossing the road, Ferrari sports vans started zooming past us with cameras all over them, at first I had no idea what it was. But then I figured out that it was a commercial
