Fabulous staff, great location. Beautiful views. A few steps away from the beach. I was impressed with the handicap accessibility area on the beach. A lot of steps to get to the rooms. Split level rooms with steps as well. But it wasn't a problem for us. Rooms were very large and clean. Would love to go back!

The best thing was the rate. We had suite with the strangest entry we have ever experienced. From the front door to the "living room" we had to walk up a very steep staircase. Very strange. We also had to walk up a small stair case to get to the bedroom. The breakfast was average. You had to park yourself... More

Lido Palace Hotel is located in the beautiful little town of Santa Margherita Ligure on the Rivera. The staff was very kind and polite. We had breakfast and dinner at hotel every night and both were good. Requesting a room facing the water would be a plus to the vacation since the view is spectacular. The marina across the hotel...

We have stayed in other hotels in Santa Margherita in the past but have found that overall the Lido Palace is the best for value,the friendliness and willing assistance of the staff and particularly the location in the centre of town. The view from the rooms is spectacular and if you get a room with a balcony (well worth the... More

A very nice Hotel by the beach in the middle of the town, a short walk from the train station. Very nice and large rooms (suites), and a nice breakfast buffet. A bit expencive, but it was worth it. Nice and helpful staff. They give good recomondations to restaurants and sightseeings.

Stayed here two nights. Nice rooms, split level, with separate living room overlooking the beach and water. Balconies. Comfortable beds but mattresses are on the firm side. Good showers. Mediocre food. Excellent location. Friendly staff.

We used the Lido Palace as part of a Travesphere package to the Italian Riviera. The hotel is well located on the front overlooking the bay. Unfortunately it lacks a garden and the main road runs immediately to the front making sitting on the handful of chairs outside not a pleasant experience. The first floor lounge is cool and pleasant... More

It is close to city centre and opposite the beach. Transport is also right across the road. The views of the beach are amazing from the hotel. Buffet breakfast is about average. Cleanliness is good. It is an okay hotel with a great view and in close proximity to everything.

This hotel is all about the location, absolute beachfront. The staff were very attentive and extremely helpful and nothing we asked for was ever a problem. We were located on the third floor with breathtaking views, however, the rooms could certainly do with a complete makeover. Our main criticism was the quality of the food at breakfast. The loaves of... More
