We have just returned from a week's stay at 'La Riserva' and have enjoyed every minute of it. Our room was exactly as it was described on the website, with stunning views over the Italian riviera towards Monaco. Admittedly, the room's air condidtioning could have been a bit more efficient, but that might have been because it was extremely hot... More

La Riserva is truly a special place. I fell in love with it from a Charme and Relax brochure years ago....and this year, we finally were able to visit--- "fitting in" Paris and Provence around Ventimiglia, because of this hotel's unique position! True, the 3km. ride to the hotel is "challenging", but, the reward at the end of the road... More

We were here for one night. The food was of a very high quality, served by delightful professional staff who were intent on making it a great experience. As others have said the view takes your breath away - provided you survive the drive up there on a very narrow winding road, although the hotel is very well signposted. I... More

We found this place using Google map. We wanted to have quiet, small italian place close to Nice airport. Indeed this is place fullfilled the specs. Service was really charming, no need to remember your room number as they did it. Service was adapted according to needs. Hotel is on the top of hill, 3km does not sound too much... More

The location of this family run hotel is quite simply stunning! The road to it is a typical Italian mountain road. Though only 3 kms or so (via the short road) from the town, it feels more remote with superb views along the coast from its high position. The pool and grounds are very well kept by Salvatori the gardener,... More

While this very old hotel is perched atop a mountain overlooking the Italian Riviera and Monte Carlo, the last few miles of the drive are going up the mountain where the roads are extremely, steep, narrow, and twisted to the point that you actually feel like you're taking your life into your hands and you try to limit your comings...

Based on previous reviewers comments, we selected this small, family run hotel for its location, pool and parking. We were not disappointed as the home-style food and service in the restaurant makes it like a home away from home. The half-board menu is also a good value option as well as the wine recommendations from Emilio. We also enjoyed the... More

This hotel....wow! Wow! Wow! From the moment we were greeted getting out of our car by Emilio, it has been a grand experience! The views are simply off the hook! Yes, you do have to drive a bit, but how else would you get the views?!? The signage directing you to the hotel is a great help! The room was... More

I stayed in a Junior suite with a beautiful view of the coastline. This hotel is family run and you did feel part of the family. The owner Antonio was so helpful and even prepared meals which were not on the menu due to our dietary requirements. The staff, Mario, Emilio and David were so helpful & lovely, nothing was... More
