We were supposed to stay for four nights at La Francesca, but after we got an awful room situated under the reception hall we got really pissed off and asked for a full refund. The ladies at the reception denied us the refund and all we could get was a better room for additional money! That was the only bad... More

Mr Christian and Mrs Karina had received - before making their reservation - all the information about it, what kind of offer we propose and what facilities, which are not (as often explained: see our rates) those of a 4 stars hotel! Problems have arisen immediately on arrival. They did not like the small flat they had booked for 3... More

Think camping and hiking- lots of hiking- up mountains. Also be prepared to bring in supplies- even food. If you don't have a car it is nearly impossible to purchase groceries in the nearby town. The views are stunning and beautiful hiking trails. The pool is strange- very strange. Very strict rules and odd staff. The employees in the mini... More

We came here expecting basic, but in actual fact many of the facilities were just neglected and run-down. Examples, such as the ignition not working on the hob, thus having to buy a lighter and light bulbs in the bedroom out. The description offers a football pitch and tennis courts, both of which were actually unplayable - weeds on the... More

Beautiful location however very poor service with lack of basic amenities such as toilet paper, shampoo and soap for the duration of the stay. Rooms are very basic and maintenance of rooms is not appropriate for a hotel of this rating. For breakfast you don't even get a plate to put your croissants on.

Dear Mr Erik: thanks for the appreciation given to our resort (a 15 hectares' park facing the sea). But once more I have to explain that your negative comments - although appropriate for a 4 stars' hotel - cannot be taken into consideration if referred to an accomodation like ours which according to the Italian law is considered in the...

Park situated extremely beautiful. Facing the sea. Views from nearly all appartements are great. The Upper Bungalows don't have a sea view.. sort of no view at all. Avoid these I would say. Appartements are basic +, park mantained properly and neat. Pool good. For small childeren the sea is not easy accessible, while it is a rocky - private-... More

We enjoyed our time in La Francesca. Although the place is a little bit far from everything else, it was part of the charm for us. We had the perfect view of the ocean from our balcony and watched many sunsets from the comfort of our own home. It would take a 30-40 minute walk to the train station of... More

We had a great stay at the resort. Our rental was a two bedroom house - 2 couples travelling together by car. The resort is located very conveniently between Bonnasola and Levanto - a gateway to Cinque Terre villages by train from Levanto and are all walkable. Views from our house were spectacular and we enjoyed having our own groceries... More

The location is great but other than that it is average. Wifi is poor, they do not clean your room or give you toilet paper or even a sponge to clean your dishes. You need to take your own rubbish to the garbage cans They expect you to leave the room clean and then charge cleaning fee.

This Place could have been the perfect Place if an Investor invested some cash in upgrading the villas. The resort is Close to cinque terre and is really Beautiful. It's really nice how steep the resort is which makes the views more dramatic. However, the legs need to be strong as you need to walk up and down. The hostess... More
