In July of 2014, my husband and I stayed at the Vis a Vis for the second time, and it did not fail to still impress us. The staff was friendly, and outstandingly helpful, albeit finding the perfect restaurant, or just helping us navigate the trains. We had stayed here previously and loved the views it offers, either looking at... More

As part of our summer drive to Italy we stopped off in Liguria at the wonderful Vis a Vis. We chose this hotel, partly due to its position, conveniently close to the Autostrada (as this was mean't to be a stopping point on the way back to the UK) but also close to a number of sites such as the...

We spent 7 nights at the Vis a Vis and have nothing but good things to say. The position of the hotel is incredible with the views from the top floor bar, pool and the restaurant below simply breathtaking. The hotel is situated on the outskirts of the town and is easy to walk to a wide range of local... More

Had we realized that this Hotel (and Sestri Levante) had so much to offer, we would have stayed longer. Of course the Hotel overlooks the bays, but its proximity to the old town is also a real bonus. The bar area and restaurant are exceptional. The only quirk was that our room backed onto the restaurant kitchen, so we could... More

The hotel sits high up on a hill (but has an elevator directly down to the town level so you get the best of both settings). Rooftop bar and restaurant have huge panoramic windows and take full advantage of the view. The hotel is older (celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2014) so the rooms are smaller, however they are well... More

This hotel is set on top of the hillside overlooking the twin bays of Sestri Levante. The view is enchanting, amazing, exquisite. The mythology is that the gods turned the arm of a would be assailant into the leafy, stony promontory that separates the bays to prevent him catching and ravishing a young maiden. The view is fit for the... More

We stayed here for one night and wished we had longer. The view is incredible!! Absolutely breath-taking, you would not want to stay anywhere else. Bar and pool area are fantastic, making the most of the view too. Very relaxing oasis, would strongly recommend! Negative was that we had to wait 1.5 hrs after the official bcheck-in time for our...

Staying in this amazing resort feels like being transported back in time to holidaying on the Italian Riviera in the 1920s. The great thing is that it also feels authentic. Everything is done extremely well from the decor to the music. The poolside area is almost impossible to leave and the only better view is from the nearby bar and... More

With the most breathtaking views, and great spaces to make the most of them, Vis a Vis hotel offered fantastic service with friendly and corteous staff. The rooms were basic, clean but had good Frette linen. Although we had a family room, the bathtub was a little tight, it was adequate and there was lovely bath/shower products. The common areas...

Stayed for short break from UK. 2nd visit to Liguria - great region. sestri is a charming, quaint, coastal town - mainly Italians vacationing, always a good sign! Great food and appetitivo culture, lively at night. Vis a vis is a great base - leachate position gives superb sea views from room balcony. Rooms quite small but comfortable (firm beds... More
