We stayed for 3 nights at the Albergo Marina in August. We had two very good sized clean rooms for our family of 5. My only complaint would be that they were very dark, and we had lots of problems using the safe (although they were very accommodating and helped us with them several times so not the end of the world). The breakfast in the lemon garden on the rooftop was a great way to start the day with custom omelettes and self serve coffee machine (so no waiting if you needed java). The afternoon "snack" was great with salad, melon and a plate of pasta (one of my children said it was the best pesto he had in Liguria -- and we ate ALOT of pesto). We vastly preferred staying in the old part of Monterosso where this hotel was, close to lots of restaurants and had that authentic feel. Amazing how they have come back from the October 2011 floods which destroyed the area (and ruined the first floor of the hotel). They had all kinds of beach equipment we could use, which was great since who travels with those things? And sitting up on the roof with a bottle of wine one afternoon was so relaxing.
