What a stunning setting for a beautiful hotel - the views from the room and the terrace restaurant are to die for. It beats its neighbour (Portofino) hands down. Our original room was very small, so we were moved to a larger room (at the same price) and presented with a bottle of champagne when we arrived. Staff were super... More

The hotel has prime location, and as we opened our patio doors we looked across the bay at the boats, cruise liners and village. It is spectacular both during the day and moonlit evenings. We enjoyed relaxing on our loungers in this beautiful setting. The bathroom is a bit small, but spotlessly clean. The gardens down to the deck and... More

This hotel's selling point is its position, set high atop a cliff you have incredible views across the Med. A lovely stroll down through the manicured gardens to the private beach, passing the on site beachside restaurant and bar with yet more gorgeous views ends with a bit of a shock when you are charged 20 euro's per day per...

In hotel lobby there is great views direct to the sea : it was very impressive and peaceful atmosphere. Staff was very busineslike and dignified in a old classic style like whole hotel. You must prepare some... More

The views were wonderful and hotel is delightful. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly and the breakfast, which included prosseco, was delicious. The bedroom was fairly basic but also had a beautiful view. I'd definitely recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Santa Margherita Ligure and can't wait to go back!

We have been at Hotel Continental during summer holidays and the experience was simply perfect. The location is fantastic. Few minutes walk from the centre of Santa Margherita, with its boutiques and bars, on top of an hill facing the harbour. From the moment we walked through the gate we have been pampered in every possible way. Everyone was super... More

Wonderful location with an outstanding view on Santa Margherita and Portofino Bay. The garden on the sea is beautiful and perfectly maintained with a private access to the sea. One of the best spots to stay in the area and probably the best terrace for breakfast. The staff is very nice, helpful and professional. As in most of those old... More

The views from the hotel, the front desk service and the location were great. They knew our names and room numbers, and suggested great restaurants. HOWEVER, we were perplexed by the €20 per lounge chair charge to sit by the water! We were unaware of this fee when we took seats at 4pm and the charge showed up on our... More

We were really happy with our choice to stay in this town, which is big enough to have things to do and places to eat, but is also very lovely. And this hotel was very well-located as it was away from the busier city center so we thought it was a better choice than some of the other well-known hotels.... More
