Great location with a large terrace for watching the sunset while wine tasting. Breakfast was substantial and in a nice setting with more views. Some old historic charm in all of the rooms we saw. The elevator is tiny and slow, but not a worry.

This hotel was recommended by our tour operator and our expectations were not only met, but were exceeded! It is located at the top of a big hill/small mountain overlooking the sea and the wonderful town of Sestri Levante, conveniently located half way between Portofino and Cinque Terra. The highly rated hotel restaurant was where we enjoyed our first night's... More

We trekked up a long, steep hill with our luggage only to learn when we reached the registration desk that 1) an elevator was available from street level and 2) a car would have come get us at the train station upon request. Unfortunately, we did not learn of this in advance. Further, the elevator kept going in and out... More

We had a wonderful stay in this absolutely amazing hotel. The staff were warm and friendly and made you feel so welcome. If you needed directions not only did they give these, but went out of their way, to take you outside and show you exactly where you should be going. Our room was a good size and furnishings were...

We enjoyed our stay in this castle-come-hotel, and the views from any angle are spectacular. But, as a four-star, it doesn't measure up for a top rating. Rooms were sparse but clean, and the bathroom had been renovated. Certainly very clean. If you 'take the plunge' on price, be sure to visit the swim club, and take the walk around... More

Great hotel. Superb service. Private, gorgeous swimming area surrounded by rocks. Best rooms and accommodations during my entire stay in Italy. Could only be better with less of walk to downtown area. Highly recommend this to families and our couples.

It was incredible to have the experience to spend 3 days in a Castle. They have excellent attendants who are able to speak in spanish, italian, english end they also tried something in portuguese. I had a great time there! If I have chance, I definitely would return! They also have the best breakfast I've ever tried!

We had a fantastic room with a view of Portorino in the distance across the water. The breakfast was well presented in a room overlooking the sea. The pool (which you access by elevator and then tunnel ) was also beautiful. The staff was amazing. We were assisted by the staff during a rail strike. They not only helped look... More

I often stay in this beautiful castle set in 140 hectare peninsula away from the noise. The views are magnificent The inside decor should be freshened up as it is aging . If you are looking for a dream set up on the sea, this is it. The restaurant setting is awesome . Moving from normal Mediterranean to a mix... More
