4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

The best sea view over the gulf of Santa Margherita, conveniently located walking distance from everything. Great private swimming area, gorgeous gardens. A plus: dogs accepted A minus: hotel guests are charged to use the "beach" chairs and sun umbrellas (like any other outside person who is not staying at the hotel). The staff is very friendly and service-oriented, although... More

4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Hotel Continental(e) is a beautiful, historic hotel in a gorgeous location overlooking the bay of Santa Margherita and the coastline towards Portofino. There are some more luxurious hotels in town, and in neighbouring Rapallo, but we found the Continental(e) to be very nice. Some reviewers commented that the furniture is "old" and it's true that the hotel has a kind... More

Santa Margherita makes you feel like you are in one of the 60's celebrity bays. Everything is elegant, especially the location of the hotel is amazing. The time period that we were there was not ideal for the waterfront but I imagine it will be wonderful by the summertime. Willing to go again.

Hotel has an exceptional position, however: 1 - the food choice for dinner is limited, but we'll prepared and given location reasonbly priced 2 - rooms vary in quality, some showers are very small The killer however is the 20 euro a day per person for a sun lounger, which you need to enjoy the "beach" area Finally, some staff...

Planning my first trip to Italy, I spent weeks researching on Trip Advisor for the best hotels to suit our dream holiday. Given the great reviews of Hotel Continental, I was excited to arrive at this amazing destination. What transpired can only be described as depressing. Given it's 4 star rating and the amazing views, I was disappointed to walk... More

Dear Madam, we are sorry for your impressions and for the fact that you did not like our lobby furnished with "Cassina" sofas and "Giorgetti" armchairs two of the most important names in the Italian design world known. It is really strange that you could smell the smoke odor as in Italy it’s strictly prohibited smoking indoors and in the... More

Santa Margherita is one of the most beautiful places I have been, the hotel is in a perfect location and is really lovely, about a 5 min walk to the restaurants and shops. The sunbathing area by the sea is stunning !!!! You need sea shoes as its rocky. The staff are so sweet and can't do enough for you.... More

Excellent views, service and atmosphere. We enjoyed our stay so much that we did not wan to leave. Good was great and the town was a short walk away. Many outstanding restaurants. There was an artist there that was a great painter and captured the region in all his paintings. We wanted to stay longer but did not have the... More

We are a couple in our sixties and stayed here for a week in June. Our garden room with sea view was spacious and well-appointed and was kept scrupulously clean. We had no trouble with the wi-fi - it was better than many other hotels. The staff were very friendly and helpful at all times. We enjoyed dinner in the... More

Just had a wonderful sojourn at this, one of my favourite summer hotels. Had my first swim of the season in their private rock enclosed pool. Just like a swimming pool but in the Med. instead. Lovely helpful staff, great buffet breakfasts, good cappucinos. Very easy to drive to, as private parking available. One of the best positions in Santa... More

Initially we were sceptical but after settling down and having our lunch. We realised the beautiful scenery and the tranquil ambiance the surrounding was. The staff needs more than a 5 stars for the very tentative to detail and extremely friendly smile to assist you.
