We lived at the Hotel Porto Roca for 10 days from 7 September. From the first minutes at the hotel we were delighted with almost everything we saw. We had a room on the top floor with large terrace. Highly recommend the rooms on top floor or at least rooms with view. It's worth it. All 10 days we could not get enough of the beauty of the surroundings. Having this great location and views they don’t need nothing more, but the hotel have a lot of very good facilities. It is the only hotel that has private beach with free sunchairs, umbrellas and towels. I'm not afraid to say that the hotel's restaurant is the best in the town. Only a few restaurants in the world have such a picturesque location with such a marvellous view. They cook very good traditional dishes with elements of haute cuisine. We tried almost all the menu. And it's not overpriced. The service is worthy of all praise. Even if some of young waiters cannot speak English very well but they try to please, and it has its own charm. Porto Roca is very close to the old city center but in the isolated position. Scenic route to the hotel clinging to the cliff is the first steps of the famous hiking trail. Every time we walked up and down on the way to the hotel I couldn't help but take pictures again and again... I have to say about Monterosso people. They are very kind and talented. We were happy to take part in two local events that habitants of Monterosso organized for themselves and tourists. It was a great funny performance on the streets of old town. Besides, almost every night there was a concert or performance on the pier of old seaport. Also we saw a magnificent firework and a cycle race. We live in the city of 16 millions people, but don’t see so many events during whole year, as we have watched in 1,6 thousand Monterosso for 10 days.
