Flew into Genoa and rented a car for a road trip mainly heading back towards France along the coastline and then up into the alps but we started off by wondering what all the fuss was about with a place called Portofino! Booked in not far down the road, in fact walking distance, to The Hotel Continental here and superb... More

Our family stayed 5 nights at the Hotel Continental in September. It was the highlight of our trip - the view from our room was spectacular. Every evening we met for cocktails on the patio or the lounge and were greeted graciously by the staff. The concierge always so helpful, the breakfast & dinner staff always so pleasant, the grounds... More

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!
