“Stunning views, clean rooms, good cuisine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2012

Hotel staff both at reception and in restaraunt are very friendly and helpful, speak English and German well. Special thanks to the headwaiter :)
We stayed in room 304 (partial sea view). The room was rather small, but clean and well equipped, with a large balcony. Wi fi worked well. View from the balcony was absolutely stunning. Disadvantage is the it looks on the main road hill, which is rather busy and noisy at night (lots of motorbikes and ambulances).
Meals quality in the restaraunt was good.
The hotel had its own equipped beach (very crowded in August as all Italian beaches). Lounger and umbrella are included in room cost. It takes about 5-10 min to walk from hotel down to the beach. We have seen a hotel shuttle going to and from the beach several times a day. Parking place is difficult to find, but not impossible as long as you drive well enough.
In general the hotel made a very good impression.

Room Tip: In old building it's better to book sea view or partial sea view if you don't want someone...

This is a very nice hotel with modern and clean rooms. Me and my family stayed at the hotel for 8 days and we are all very satisfied. The management and other personnel was very kindly and helpful. The hotel is located in south/western part of Diano Marina with a splendid sea view over the bay of Diana Marina and San Bartholomeo.

Room Tip: All the sea view room has a splendid outlook with balcony, but don't be afraid of choosing anoth...

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2011

I stayed in this hotel for six nights with an organised tour. Overall, I enjoyed my stay here. The rooms were very clean and of convenient size and the bed comfortable. There was even a balcony, the weather was just a bit too cold to use it. The personnel was friendly and helpful. And important for me: Their WiFi was working really well and was quite fast.

What I did not enjoy very much was the food. While some dishes were quite tasty, others were bland. It wasn't really bad, but compared to other restaurants we ate in during our stay, it was not up to standard. Admittedly, we were a group of 15 people and at the same time, there was another group of like 50 people there and we all had the same food. So maybe they had to compromise.

Another thing was that my room was quite noisy. I heard the street outside and the inhabitants of neighbouring rooms inside the hotel quite well. Other people in our group said however that their rooms were very quiet. So maybe it depends on the location of the room, mine was more central, while the others had rooms more to the side of the building (which is shaped a bit like a fan).

Also, the location is not that great. You have to walk around 15 minutes to get to the city centre. The beach is a downhill trip of 5 minutes, uphill takes longer. We were usually picked up by the bus for our tours, so I didn't mind this so much, but depending on your plans, it might be a factor.

I can't say much about the value as I paid the whole package, and I don't know how much the hotel would have cost separately.
