A old and well situated hotel in Santa Margherita di Ligure. I know it was in season, it was on the Italian Riviera but it is not OK to charge extra for a bunch of things when you give a 'all inclusive' impression on your website. For example only a deck chair was included on the beach - we had... More

A grand traditional old Italian Hotel in beautiful grounds with its own lagoon pool and diving platforms in the sea. The rooms are very clean, a good size and the hotel offers excellent facilities throughout. The Beach restaurant food at lunchtime was excellent and changed daily. The only downside - The main road running around the back of the hotel... More

Firstly, I must say that I wonder if the last review was accidentally reviewing the wrong hotel. We are the fussiest people and I must say this hotel is up with the cleanest we have ever stayed in. Our room was cleaned beautifully and spotlessly every morning by our charming chambermaid Alina, and the great thing was she always cleaned... More

We stayed in the hotel this summer. The place is very bad, not clean old, and expensive for what it offers. The people in the hotel are arrogant and not helpful at all and only want to take money from you. The rooms had insects, the rooms were not clean at all, and when we complained nothing happened. I visted... More

If you can afford to stay regularly in this kind of place and value not really a consideration, you will not be disappointed: it is a fantastic old building right on the water, staff are generally friendly and efficient, and it is a nice place to stay with children, especially toddlers who love the sandpit by the beach. That said,... More

Stayed 6 nights in a family suite on the ground floor, highly recommend requesting lower level. Kids had their own fenced yard, easy walk to the pool. Metropole has a small beach which is rare, so lots for kids to choose from. Not a lot of food choices which is why I don't give it a 5, but overall great... More

I stayed at the Metropole for two nights in late July. I had booked a single room & was delighted to find that my room had been upgraded to a corner double room whose windows opened up to wonderful sea views. Going to sleep & waking up to the caress of the sea waves was an unexpected bonus. The gardens... More

Stayed here 4 nights and it is a good place to stay in the Santa Margherita/Portofino area. Grounds are impeccable and you can swim in the nice pool or they have lounge chairs for rent on the beach. The rooms are very nice and we were lucky enough to have a beautiful water view.The breakfast was a disappointment as I... More

We were disappointed that our travel agent could not get us into another hotel of our choice but we should not have worried because this hotel has everything we want and more. It's fabulous. We love our room which has a small balcony overlooking the most fabulous view of the sea the garden and the pool. The maid service is... More

For the last 14 years my husband and I have been going every year to Santa Margherita from Australia. Sometimes there are the two of us and sometimes we go with my family and the nieces. The hotel gives us the same rooms every year and we just love it. It has become our home away from home. We feel... More
