We booked a suite for 3 nights for 2 adults and 2 kids (10yrs and 11 yrs). The suite turned out to be just a large room with a chaise long that was made up into a bed and a fold out camp bed. The view over the bay across to Porto fino was lovely, although, it might be nice... More

My wife and I have spent a few days in this hotel early august. We were given a junior suite facing the sea: view was gorgeous, one of the best on the Tigullio bay, you could see it from Rapallo to Portofino. Service was excellent, and the food in the terrace restaurant really high level. Needless to say, this being... More

Lovely view from the swimming pool and restaurants. We had a standard room at the back which was quiet although no mirror in our room and no additional toiletries such as cotton wool, ear buds, etc. Nice walk into Rapallo although quiet a distance for some.

This hotel is incredible and quite clearly for some people who visited they were clearly treated extremely well and enjoyed their time immensely. We booked on the basis of those reviews. I'm really glad if that was the case. Unfortunately for my family, we felt so let down by our experience and I have to say having stayed in a... More

This is a lovely hotel situated on a hill with a great view of the sea. There is a 15 minute walk to town which is very pleasant. We had a sea and pool view, in a junior suite with an extra bed for our 16 year old daughter. The room was very large and comfortable for 3 people. Our... More

We stayed for 4 nights at this hotel. We had a sea view room which was nice with great views. However, the staff in this hotel make you feel that they are doing you a favour by letting you stay there. The manager only spoke to who he considered to be VIP guests, ignoring the rest. The restaurant is sited... More

This hotel was a surprise. We booked it really last minute and was really good. The room had an impressive sea and pool view. The downside to this hotel was the gym is really small, the sauna was not working for the entire stay. The breakfast, although not bad, lacked variety. All in all a good experience.

My rating is based on central European standards, elsewhere in the world, I'm sure this hotel would be marketed as five star. It's a beautiful building, could probably do with a little refurbishment here and there and perhaps a bit more care taken over the house-keeping (couple of blown light bulbs etc). That's the negative comments done with! Staff are... More
