This hotel is situated on a perfect location. It is called a 4 star hotel, but I consider it a 3 star hotel. The room I had chosen was good (make sure you choose a room with sea view and large terrace in stead of balcony), but the hair dryer was only hot and did not blow, and I could... More

Hotel is situated on a hill overlooking the beautiful bay. The view is exceptional and picture perfect! The hotel is walking distance from the town, but also tucked away from the hustle and bustle. The gardens are immaculately kept. My impression is that of an old grand dame, that is in need of some tender loving care. The rooms are... More

I stayed in Hotel Continental at Santa Margherita during my birthday trip to Italy. When you look for a hotel in a new place, it is always very hard to make the "right decision." From our first steps in this hotel, I realized that we not only made the right choice, but found a home of friends...or even a family... More

The hotel is situated ontop of a hill overlooking the bay. The views from the sea side rooms are fantastic with a lovely garden between you and the sea. However, the rooms are very old and need updating as well as being very small with a tiny bathroom and rickety hard as a rock ikea type bed. Breakfast was average... More

The name of my magic hotel is the Hotel Continental in Santa Margarita. I asked my wife to marry me there and asked her in Italian. Though she speaks no Italian, I found that getting down on one knee, having the Mediterranean at my back, and whipping out a fair sized stone, she got the picture. But the picture I... More

We asked to move,which... More

The Hotel Continental sits on a hill over looking Santa Margherita. Its holds a perfect location and probably as close you would want to be to Portofino. The stroll from the rear terrace takes you down the immaculate gardens to a small man made harbour that is reserved for swimming. There is good access via several sets of steps. Beach... More

Continental, Santa Margherita Ligure, is a superior hotel, well located in a lovely oceanfront town, close to Portofino but without the crowds. Hotel personnel are wonderful, including welcoming desk and concierge, housekeeping and dining room. Special attention was paid to special requests. The grounds of the hotel are park like and beautifully maintained. This was our fourth stay and we... More

The hotel is very well maintained with clean rooms and a very helpful and accommodating staff. Because we extended our stay several times we stayed in several different rooms. This is a four star hotel with some three star rooms. However, each of the rooms was immaculate and comfortable. In some of the rooms, the tub/shower was so narrow it... More

Hotel is located est. 300 m from town center so it is perfect walk distance for evening dinner. At the same time it has direct access to sea and beautiful small rock beach to totally relax (plus beach restaurant). You enjoy wonderful view of sea and beautiful garden while having breakfast.
