Very nice stay on Grand Hotel Del Mare, the best one I tried on Liguria area. Wonderful sea view, hotel staff more than very kind. Food was very good, especially the omelet on the breakfast. The last, but not the least, no noise due to the road as this is a private road, well hidden from the sea way.

The couple of nights we spent at the Grand Hotel del Mare was a thoughtful birthday treat from my current boyfriend, who's not quite sure of the actual date so spreads his gifts two weeks either side to be on the safe side. He thinks I haven't twigged this. I love Italy and was very much looking forward to the... More

I am afraid this hotel did not "do it" for me or my partner. I know most reviewers on TripAdvisor commend the Grand Hotel del Mare (GHM) but, although I am only a poor little Welsh orphan who normally oozes humility towards the views of my betters, I think too many people have been taken in by the superficial charms...

When arriving, you think this cannot be it, a 5 star hotel, driving through a narrow passage, but than... a nice atrium valetparking somebody who takes over your luggage, receptionists speaking different languages, how wonderfull. The room is luxurious with a balcony; seaview. The bed is perfect not to hard not to soft and 180 by 200; big to Italian... More

A very nice and classic hotel. Full of very nice art, painting and sculptures everywhere. The grounds are very nice - from breakfast to dinner around the pool is very nice. Spending times on the transat looking at the beautiful and calm sea is very nice. Good service all together, very good cuisine.

First of all I really like Bordighera. Its a quiet understated town where one can relax and take in some beautiful medieval hilltop towns and enjoy the glamour of the French as well as the Italian Riviera. The Grand Hotel del Mare is just like that, an oasis of peace and relaxation. My room are spacious and light overlooking the... More

Stayed here for 4 nights as a base for the Monaco Grand Prix. Beautifully decorated in traditional style. Grounds are very large and nicely manicured. Location right on the shores of the Mediterranean absolutely gorgeous. Only comment is the service at breakfast must be better, asking for milk 3 times every day not satisfactory. Waiting staff should pay more attention... More

This is an awesome hotel and spa right on the sea. The hotel decor is classic and refined and the grounds are beautiful. The rooms have balconies which overlook the sea. We spent two romantic nights at this hotel. The spa is very nice and the staff is welcoming. If you like the beach then you will love this hotel.... More

Few could complain about the magnificent location of this very traditional hotel but the food was poor and expensive and many of the staff in need of training. We would stay again simply because it is so comfortable and convenient but how nice it would be to see some proper Italian food. The many dogs staying with their owners seemed... More

Dear Ladies and gentlemen, please choose this hotel when you enjoy the following features: 1) Being insulted and threatened by hotel director ("better select a hotel for nervous people" and ("if you take a picture of the painting and publish it on the web, you will be very sorry later") 2) If you enjoy the smell of paint while you...
