Beautiful hotel right by the sea. Our room was huge! And very nice and clean. We had a beautiful view of the ocean. They have a really good breakfast buffet as well. Many good places to eat nearby and right by where you can take a boat to Portofino or Cinque Terre. Also, an easy walk to the train station.

We had booked our stay at the Lido Palace based on the reviews in TA. The reviews were very good, but the actual experience is even better! The location of the this hotel is excellent - a short walk from the train, great restaurants in the area, and the beach right across the road! Secondly, the staff at the front... More

We had booked the Lido Palace Hotel in Santa Margherita Ligure, having just spent nearly three weeks in Italy staying mostly at B&B's, and coming from our previous stop in Vernazza [one of the Cinque Terre villages]. This was our second to last night, accommodation was hard to come by, and we settled on the Lido Palace Hotel [rather than... More

Well, there are a few words to describe how I feel about Lido Palace: the best staff in the world, the best view ever (the higher the better), great and convenient location in Liguria, it just makes me feel like home and wanting to go back every year. One of these days they'll decide to update the decoration and it... More

Enjoyed this hotel and the beach on our trip from Cingue Terre to Milano. After hiking this was a nice place just to relax! Good service and nice room with a balcony to the sea! In the evening had a lovely dinner on the beachboulevard!

The driver of a Mercedes parked in front of our hotel courteously moved it so we could stop and leave off our luggage. Two elderly ladies came out of the hotel dressed in fashionable evening attire as we entered. This made us wonder if we should have packed our dinner jackets after all. We stayed for several nights at this... More

Our family of 5 had 4 nights at this hotel and loved it. We were given room 501 which is on the top floor with a gigantic roof terrace. This was a fantastic space for the family to hang out and enjoy the view. I would definitely stay here again and ask for the same room. The room rate was... More

We finished our holiday with four days in the Riviera, and what a pleasant place to spend it! Despite having to park our own car, this little gem of a hotel is very well priced and the staff is very courteous. Our suite, a corner unit has four huge windows that open to the sea air. The upstairs bedroom is... More
