The pool and beach area of this hotel are so beautiful and private, and the restaurant food so delicious, you could easily stay on the hotel premises for 2 days without visiting the town. What I call the beach are in fact three large stone platforms protruding into the sea upon which sits beach chairs with umbrellas. Guests climb down... More

The hotel is indeed charming and the staff highly professional (as you would expect for a five stars hotel), but what really makes the difference is the stunning view from the restaurant and the private beach...it is really worth trying. Plus, the city center is walking distance, so the location is also very convenient

We have been to all the luxury hotels (4* and 5*) hotels in and around Santa Margherita and this one is the best by far. You are in a real Palace with high ceilings and marble floors and bathroom. The rooms are very classic but that is what we are looking for in this kind of Hotel. The private beach... More

Worth the expense to treat yourself. Make sure you get a high room with ocean view and small balcony, perfect for evening drinks. Beach area great, always plenty of sun beds and steps into water if needed. Breakfast just bliss. Great variety and location.

We stayed one night at the Imperiale on our travels along the Italian Riviera, and found it to be an ideal choice. The hotel is in a wonderful Rococo style with beautiful well kept gardens that lead down to its pool and sea bathing area. It's only a short walk into town, which enabled us to leave our car in...

Everything about this hotel is first class. You will be amazed as you walk through the various rooms to the restaurant; grounds are beautifully manicured and staff/service attentive and thorough. We did not want to leave the pool and beach area; it was heavenly. Rooms on the front have an incredible view of the bay, especially at night from the... More

Used this as a base to explore Portofino and Cinque Terre. Outstanding service, beautiful old world charm. Nothing was too difficult for the extremely attentive and friendly staff. Felt very private yet close to centre of everything in tow. Definitely will stay here again. Food was exquisite, breakfast buffet of great variety. Sea views and pool area gorgeous!
