This is a classic beachfront resort. Beautifully located with an easy walk to the center of Santa Margherita and a brief train ride to the Cinque Terre. Much nicer accommodations than can be found in those smaller fishing towns. Carefully tended to by a friendly staff, they welcomed everyone from children to elders and groups to solo guests. I would... More

We enjoyed 5 nights at Santa Margherita Palace staying in a Junior Suite with a large balcony. The location is very convenient to the train station, beach and restaurants, the room was spacious and very comfortable. Breakfast was terrific. We fell in love with Santa Margherita and while we enjoyed visiting Cinque Terre, Positano and Rappallo, we loved coming home... More

Stayed here for 1 night and was really impressed by the rooms and the hotel staff and whole atmosphere. We stay in a lot of hotels and loved this place. At the top end of what we normally like to pay but worth it. Book out of season and get a great hotel in a good location - 10 min... More

We booked and checked in late, after 9 pm. The receptionist who took my call was EXTREMELY helpful and friend. She offered me a 50% discount on the suite which was appreciated as we were travelling for business and this was just a stop over. When we arrived, the property turned out to be a magnificent villa, completely renovated. The... More

What a lovely property in a gorgeous town along the Italian Riviera. I searched for several properties in many different towns along the coast before settling on this one and oh so happy I did. I was looking for a base that has direct train to Cinque Terre and is also close to highway. SML fit perfectly in our plans.... More

From the moment we arrived we were treated with respect by very friendly and knowledgable staff. We had a fantastic holiday here. Stayed in a large suite with terrace and had everything we needed. We had no cause for complaint at all. The breakfast was nice too. The hotel is in a great location for exploring the wonderful coast. Portofino... More

The hotel is nice, but has some disadvantages compared to other hotels in town (no sea view, for example). The staff however was very friendly, helpful and highly professional. They made us feel at home. Congrats to the great team! :) Maybe one small thing to be improved: beds and pillows could be softer....

Nicely decorated (but small) rooms, good location, friendly staff. Beds were not the best quality, spa area was extremely small. Parking is not for free. But still all in all a recommendable place to stay! I highly recommend a daytrip (or more) to Portofino! Loveliest spot ever...

I stayed at this hotel recently for 3 nights and I was immediately impressed with the service. I was travelling alone and I arrived very stressed from travelling on several trains from Bellagio, Lake Como, carrying a very heavy suitcase and trying to get it on and off trains in Italy has been my worse experience - I had no...

We stayed at this hotell for 3 nights attending a wedding in Portofino. Great Rooms with high standard in a nice town. We delivered a smoking/dinner jacket for dry cleaning on arrival and recieved it the next evening, great result! The staff is serviceminded and very helpful. Great breakfast! One of the best hotels we have visited!
