This is the second year my family and I have stayed here. We have a room on the fourth floor which sleeps two adults and two children with two balconies and one bathroom with a bath and a shower. The room is light and airy with a great view of the pool, gardens and sea. Whilst the stairs help with... More

The Metropole is a wonderful hotel. We stay here for several days each year and it continually gets better. The rooms are beautiful, particularly if you have a terrace. The staff is organized and polite. And there's a range of ages from small children to older people who have been coming here for years. The staff at the beach are... More

A really charming hotel. Clean rooms. We got a room with a private teŕasse that was really nice. Good location, near the city center. Beach was perfect. Sunbeds were 14 euros a day. Breakfast ok. Would stay here again. Oh, and you have to do the walk to Portofino.

What can I say. This is a beautiful hotel in a fantasy seaside area. Private lagoon. Beautiful property. Family owned. Service is impeccable. But there is one big flaw. One that they don't mention on their website or anywhere else. THIS HOTEL RENTS CABANAS AND HAS SEASONAL PEOPLE USING THE "PRIVATE BEACH". While this would not bother me otherwise it... More

Dear Madam A.B. Thank you for the kind words about our property and service that our family since 1897 offers to the valuable customers. Sorry but we can not accept your words about following points: our beach is private , rent from the Italian State - like all beaches in Italy - and is of 2551.20 square meters - and... More

When we first booked into this hotel (lowest room rate) I was not too happy with the room but we upgraded to a bigger room and in the end didn't want to leave. In fact we extended our stay by a day (5 days). The people at this hotel take the hospitality business very seriously and provide great service. The... More

This is a nice hotel with a lovely garden. We had two rooms at the villa and the rooms were large and comfortable and had a separate entrance. The arrangement was very family friendly and it felt like having an appartment for the price of two hotel rooms. A few dissapointments: The sea view room didn't have a balcony. Our... More

My wife and I recently stayed at this hotel for three nights with a small travel group. This hotel is a small family run business with the owners on site most of the time. The hotel itself has that small intimate feeling and the gardens surrounding the hotel are impeccably manicured. Breakfast was served on the out door patio and... More

I found small ants crawling up from behind the desk up the curtains and on my bed. Someone immediately came to my room with bug spray. Spoke to a manger who accused me of having something sweet in the room. I had no food in my room whatsoever. It became clear they were aware of this when he said that... More

Dear Madame, Thank you for taking the time to write about our hotel, but we have to dispute your claims. When you warned that you found ants in the room we immediately offered, without even checking if ants were really there, a superior double room with 3 windows overlooking the sea near your single with no extra charge and our...
