We spent a week at this lovely hotel at the end of September. We were given a great room on the 2nd floor with a balcony overlooking the pool and the beach. We took the half board package which was incredible value. Our dinner each night was silver service with the waiters in dinner suit serving a 5 course menu.... More

We loved our stay at the Metropole....unfortunately, we too had a room on the end of the building, so we didn't have the best sea view and we did have street noise....but the room was nice and the location and amenities of the hotel first rate. If you were thinking about staying in Portofino, do yourself a favor and stay... More

I have really little to add to other reviews except to agree with them - this is an exceptionally pleasant hotel. Because of late booking we could not get a sea view room in the main building, which I'd strongly recommend if at all possible. The only negative is that the hotel is on a very busy road and side...

What a wonderful place. Families of all ages, warm staff, spotless room, double-paned windows to block out the constant din of scooter noise! We loved the breakfast on the patio, the lounge chairs practically IN the ocean, the oceanfront restaurant. This hotel is truly walking distance from the train station (2 minutes away - downhill!) and we can't wait to... More

I chose the Metropole after reading the reviews on this site and was thrilled to find that the best reviews were true! The hotel property is gorgeous -- beautiful garden, lovely terrace, wonderful pool and ocean-side layout area (complete with comfortable chairs, umbrellas, etc). The staff also was extremely welcoming, nice, and helpful. In fact, I forgot my favorite pillow... More

where do I start... The hotel was stunning in every respect. The bedroom was in the Villa part and had the most beautiful views over the sea. It was clean with of course and Italian style. The hotel gardens were adorable, the smell of the flowers was wonderful. Staff very pleasant and helpful. Santa Margerita is a wonderful place to... More

I loved this hotel. My mum and I stayed for a week in July and I can find nothing to fault. For the first night we stayed in the Red Villa which was spectaular - it feels like you are on the water with sensational views. For the rest of the week we moved to the hotel itself and our... More

We stayed at this hotel for nine nights and would highly recommend it. Staff were very friendly and helpful, the rooms were spacious, well furnished and clean, and the food was excellent. The gardens and pool area were very well maintained and the provision of towels for use at the pool was a bonus. It is approx. 5 minutes walk... More

Just returned from this hotel and really loved it. We were celebrating our 28th wedding anniversary and having extensive experience of hotels in Italy and elsewhere we cannot recommend this hotel highly enough. We stayed in the annexe down by the water and had the delight of a stroll through the manicured gardens to breakfast. (If it rains there is... More

This was our first stop in Italy after driving from Nice. Santa Margherita is a lovely place with lots of charm. It is more "real" than Portofino just down the road. We stayed at the Hotel Metropole which had a great deal with Orbitz. Our room was in the red annex and looked out over the water. We could hear... More
