“Friendly place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2007

We spent 4 days at this small and friendly hotel in may.
The hotel is small and the staff is really friendly and helpfull!
Cooking is excellent and the pool is very nice!
The beach is very close to the hotel and was very quite during
that spring period.
The hotel is very close to the Cinque Terre and trains are very frequents and reliables...so even if the scenery from the hotel is not special the quality of the staff makes it a nice place to stay.

Hotel Clelia is outstanding. Devia Marina is slightly further away from the tourist hub of the Cinque Terre but its easy to go to the tourist spots from a train about 30 metres from the Hotel (Better option that taking a car). The Devia Marina beach is therefore less crowded - its a relatively large, sandy beach. Not much else in Devia Marina but the beach. We went in May which is off-peak and quite. The restaurant was full with Italians every night which reflects the quality of the food. We NEVER normally eat at the same restaurant every night, but we did for the 4 nights at the Hotel Clelia. Rooms are very tasteful, whitewashed with terracota tiles, balconies and a good size. Brilliant!

When looking for a hotel in the Cinque Terre for Sept. 2005, I found a hotel on-line that promised a "sandy beach" and easy access to the five cities of the Cinque Terre. As you can see from my photos, the beach is not sandy; it's rocks and pebbles. My hotel tried to charge me to visit the beach, but didn't even know how much to charge me. They insisted that a stay of three days or more was the only way to get a free pass to the beach, but reluctantly gave me one when I complained. When at the beach, I wasn't asked for a beach pass, so I returned my pass to the hotel when I returned.

The hotel also isn't ON the beach, as their web-site leads you to believe--it's several blocks away. They do have a pretty swimming pool, but the water is too cold to swim in--no one was swimming.

The hotel room was nice, with a free computer with internet access, but the hotel's staff was very disorganized. They were friendly and helpful, but only if you were willing to wait around for them to help others first. They seemed terribly understaffed, which was strange because the hotel wasn't very full--it was surprisingly empty for such a busy time of the year.

The boats and trains that service this area are infrequent and confusing, and they also don't stop at the tiny town of Deiva Marina often. It was difficult for us to get around--we often waited over an hour for a train, either way. It's not easy to see the area when staying in Deiva Marina!

After exploring the Cinque Terre for two days with a friend, we decided that we should have stayed in Montarossa al Mare, the northern-most town of the five. Montarossa is pretty and has some very nice hotels. Next time I return to this area, I will definately stay in Montarossa. The Cinque Terre is lovely, if a bit rugged, and worth the effort!
