I was here with my colleague on business trip in early spring. The location is fabulous, don't be fooled with long driving up to hill because once when you arrive on the top of the hill and when you see beautiful hotel with lot of activities and splendid view you don't need to return downhill to Ventimiglia.

We ended up staying here for 3 nights and four days. The road has been talked about but it is well worth the drive just for the views and to get away from it all for a bit. Restaurant has great food and a good wine list. I would stay here in a heart beat and it was one of... More

Yes the hotel is up a very steep and winding road which affords you amazing views of the sea both day and night. The service is warm and you feel like family after a day or so.the property is dated but very clean. The food is excellent. There are wonderful adventures to be had nearby. We would definitely stay there... More

Although it is a little hard to reach to this hotel located on top of a hill through a narrow road, the view is great once you get there. The staff was very nice and helpful. The interior of the hotel needs to be updated, and perhaps a change in laundry service & get new sheets, towels etc. The food... More

While it is a bit of an interesting drive to get there, once you are there the views are awesome and the food is great. Also, the staff were very helpful and provided excellent service.

We've just got back from a week here. A spacious family room, very friendly staff, an excellent swimming pool, great views. A very relaxing place to stay although as some of the other reviews state it's a little tired looking in places but nothing that should put you off going there. Take some mosquito repellent and be ready to bash... More

I never really trust hotel reviews or photos, so it was a huge pleasure to find this hotel was even better than the blurb suggested. The room (a two room suite for the four of us) was way better than I was expecting - clean, bright, larger than average, well decorated, etc. The pool and sun terrace are fantastic, especially...

Wonderful 3 star hotel, a little tired, I presume this is why it's not a 4 star. The hotel has amazing views of the coast line. We stayed in a family room which was very spacious with 2 seperate bedrooms, a patio and garden overlooking the coast towards France, view was fabulous! The kids loved the pool, and to be... More

The access to the hotel is along a narrow winding road as mentioned in other reviews, so that was no surprise. We found the slightly longer route to the hotel from the road signposted in Ventimiglia to France, better than the other from the road signposted to Ventimiglia Alta. What was a surprise was the size of the room, which... More
