We stayed at the Hotel Continental as a Birthday treat, FAB-U-LOUS. Stunning location, views outstanding from our balcony and Staff an absolute delight (they even acknowledged it was my birthday). The Hotel Continental is dog friendly, although there is a charge of 15 Euros for the dog and there is also a 12 Euro charge for parking. This all adds... More

My partner and I drove from venice to Santa Margherita so we were wrecked by the time we arrived. John greeted us at reception and told us that we had been upgraded a room type. Our room was absolutely breathtaking with the stunning view of the ocean. Our room also had a balcony with chairs and table to sit outside.... More

What a great experience. Beautiful room with a great terrace overlooking the sea. Walk down the hill a few minutes to town. From town, you can catch the train to Cinque Terre or the bus to Portofino. Or you can stay on the hotel grounds and relax. Breakfast is included, and is good. WiFi is free, but slow. Staff is... More

My husband and I stayed here for two nights in early November and loved it. The location is fantastic. The hotel is very well maintained with beautiful grounds. Since we were there off season I can't comment on the pool or sunbathing features other to say that I thought the rock swimming decks were totally cool. They are really like... More

Absolute must - A fantastic located place, on the hill tops overlooking the most beautiful sea view. The staff were very pleasant and helpful. The place was well maintained. My room had a exceptional view of the sea and gardens RM 37. Extremly well located only 10 -15mins drive to Portofino. St Margherita is a wonderful town. Would go again!

This hotel was exactly what I imagined. Beautiful hotel up on a hill looking over the Sea. We were lucky to have a very large modern room #22, with a large terrace with a spectacular view. We were there four nights and had the half board plan. The food was excellent and we were able to pick from the entire... More

As soon as you step outside, you'll see exceptionally manicured gardens and greenery. The view is not bad either. We had a ground floor unit where we walked out to a small patio which we quite liked. The room had the basic amenities - mini-bar, in-room safe, hairdryer, but limited space to unpack. We found the staff very friendly and... More

It's a little challenging to get there if you're driving, the streets are narrow and winding but the reward is worth it. We stayed here last minute for one night and wished we could have stayed a week. Our room faced the parking lot and street (a Ferrari parked below...just sayin') but even that was a nice view of the... More
