This is an enigma of a hotel. On paper it has everything, and plenty of people have reviewed if favorably. Yet it is a story of lost opportunity. The good: the location, beautiful views, a five minute walk to the town (up hill on the way back), quiet (apart from the night -once a week- when they have a "special"... More

Stayed in room 21 in june 2015. For 3xx euro per night. Not only i was not impressed, i was disgusted. The room was tired. With cracks in the wall. Small tv located at the far corner. Balcony was dirty, untidy with leaves and dust all over. I requested John to change the room, and his reply was not friendly.... More

We visited this hotel for four nights.We learned about this hotel from Trip Advisor and after finding out a bit more regarding the area decided to stay at this hotel. When we arrived a gorgeous view of the sea greeted us. The staff was welcoming and friendly. The hotel sits on a hilltop looking over the town of Santa Margherita... More

Spent a few days here, enjoyed the beach, the beach restaurant, the deck for drinks, and the great breakfast. Classic old hotel, the rooms a little on the small side - but we had our own terrace that made the room seem twice the size! And you definitely want to spend the time outside...

I am afraid that my wife and I didnt find this hotel as marvelous as some of the reviewers. Let me get all the bad points out of the way first. When we booked this hotel in January 2015, we sent an E Mail asking if we could have a sea view. This request was depicted on the booking form.... More

There is a lot to like about this hotel. It's well located, has gorgeous views and a terrific swimming area. But this is a hotel that squanders its assets. The decor is seriously dated. The lobby has a faintly soviet era air, a feeling carried into the sparsely furnished rooms. The bed was hard to the point of discomfort, likewise... More

We stayed for three nights in an Ocean View room. The room was fantastic and the hotel (and gardens) also beautiful. The hotel is a short but easy walk to town and walking is the option (as a taxi in SML is minimum $15 euro - no matter the distance!). Views from the balconies, bar and the private beach are...

We stormed the hotel during one of the busiest week ends in July for a photoshooting campaign for a fashion company as the location and situation of the Continental is unique. We were 15 people. Despite the fact that the hotel was fully booked, the team was helpful, nice, professional and efficient. Everybody, starting form the General Manager, to the... More

My boyfriend and i are very happy that we chose this hotel over the others in the vicinity. The first night we had a great room on the 3rd floor with a balcony and a gorgeous view. The room 84 which was ground level sea view- also nice. The third night ( booking cliches) we had a superior on the... More
