Amazing unique location for this castello-like hotel. Descending thru the private park or elevator to the spectacular carved-out rock-terrace beach surrounded from all sides by beautiful clear waters, you feel in a little Mediterranean oasis. Staff very friendly, rooms a bit out-dated but bathrooms all renmovated, if you dont feel like schlepping to town fir dinner, there is a very... More

This brilliant gem located in the heart of Sestri Levante offers a very unique experience of serenity, luxury, and fun not so far away! We stayed in room 207 ( highly recommended) with a view of the sea , and easy access to the beach as well the grounds surrounding the luxurious almost medieval building. The minute you walk in,...

This is an outstanding hotel and we upgraded to half board which proved to be an inspired choice given the standard of the 4 course dinners. Staff were brilliant, room was spacious and very comfortably furnished and the food was exceptional. It surpassed our expectations and we aim to return and stay longer!

Beach access on the rocks is very nice, secluded and picturesque! Parking is available, views of both bays. Staff are friendly. Breakfast area as well is partly on an outdoor terrace. Elevator access to the town is very comfortable! Notwithstanding the cost of the hotel, having to pay extra to use the beach chairs is absurd and since they also... More

This hotel is all about relaxation. The location is on top of a hill somewhat away from the hustle and bustle of Sestri Levante city. The rooms are somewhat old style, but modern. The breakfast is great, the restaurant offers a splendid view and the staff did their best to supply us with sufficient amounts of coffee. The natural swimming... More

This hotel on the cliffs of Sestri Levante is a gem. Spacious rooms with big high ceiling-ed rooms, vast gardens with breathtaking sea views, and a hanging beach suspended on cove and the ligurian sea, make this the beautiful chateau turned into an hotel very special. The service is friendly and warm and the breakfast especially good. The place is... More

Room was lovely as was breakfast however having to pay for the private beach and not being able to get a table for dinner any night during our stay was disappointing. The staff were very helpful but it appears to be very popular with locals making it hard oft tourists.

We stayed there for a wedding party. Beautiful view and amazing place. Fish ravioli, trofie and sushi or cold cuts were great and the silent disco was the icing on the cake. But we had to wait too much during the dinner: we started to eat at 10pm and we finished at 1am with the wedding cake.

Located on a hilltop above the city, this extensively renovated hotel rises above the welter of Sestri Levante. Private elevators ascend from the sea to the hotel itself. Naturally, there are impressive vistas from several places. The hotel is segmented and occupies different sites on the hilltop. Some occupy the castle. Others are dug into the hillside. Wifi service is... More
