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...

The hotel room was clean and spacious, no complaints there. And the public areas were also clean and opulent looking. But it was all a bit 'nouveau riche' - one had the impression that it was trying to look as if it were full of expensive antiques and extremely rich people, when in fact I'm pretty sure it was all...

The hotel is beautifuly located, overlooking the bay and the Ligurian see. It has a lovely spacious garden, and the hotel is roomy, spotless and clean. The breakfast was superb and the restaurant served delicious food. The only thing we could remark is, with two small children, we felt a bit out of place from time to time. The hotel... More

From the moment you park your car and enter the hotel it is wonderful. The décor is exquisite and the hotel exudes class and sophistication. It has a wonderful restaurant. The staff are attentive and the rooms comfortable. The balcony provides wonderful views of the sea and surrounding coastline. The outdoor swimming pool is constantly heated and is like taking...

Great location, very close to the french border and Montecarlo city! Rooms are clean and posh, nice restaurant with thoughtful waiters, there's a quick access to the hotel beach facility with a brand new smart diner. I suggest to make a leap in the SPA as well... Bordighera is very nice city to visit, there you can find boutiques, restaurants... More
