We spent 3 nights at the Metropole, which is a nice hotel with a good location by the sea only separated by a lush and well maintained garden. We were also satisfied with the service. For us, the two things that pulled down the overall impression of the hotel were the room and the breakfast. We had a family room... More

We just finished our 4 day stay at Metropole, and we found the hotel and Santa Margherita Ligure a wonderful experience. It is conveniently located between Portofino and slightly further from Cinque Terre. The hotel was very clean and the staff was very pleasant and helpful. The breakfast buffet was excellent. The room size was very comfortable. We would highly... More

I really want to leave a fair review for this hotel as they do many things well but it's style and manner won't be comfortable for everyone. On the positive side it's professionally run, very clean and in my opinion offers reasonable value for money. However, this is a very traditional hotel with a surprisingly formal and old fashioned manner... More

Gorgeous location on the water with bar, patio, pool, lounging room, spa, workout room etc. If you buy the meal package be prepared for a multi-course meal served by professional wait staff in a formal dining room setting with lots of elderly. At 52 I was the youngest in the room by two decades. People have been coming there for... More

We did a last minute stay in santa margherita and there were limited rooms available. So we fist stayed in the junior suite which has a large double bed, a mezzanine with two singles and a large terrace. It is very light and bright and really comfortable. Then we moved to a garden suite which was bigger but had a... More

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
