“Welcoming and Relaxing and delicious food”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

As part of our Tauck Culturious small group tour we stayed at this very Cinque Terra hotel for two nights and were not disappointed. The hotel is perched high on a rock overlooking the beautiful ocean and beach of Monterosso and the walk up the road to the hotel is worth the effort. The staff are just delightful and could not do enough to make our stay memorable. We had a beautiful dinner in the resturaunt one evening and thoroughly enjoyed what was on offer. The brekky was average, but the outdoor dining providing the most awesome views made up for the anything that went in the mouth (too busy taking photos).

Our room was clean, had a small balcony on the first level overlooking the sea. The bed was hard (as most beds in Italy are!!! but you could leave the window open at night and listen to the ocean as you drifted off to sleep (eventually). A great place to stay.

Room Tip: Higher room would be more secluded I would think.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our 3 night stay here and wish we had stayed longer. Whether it was breakfast on our terrace high above the sea or in the restaurant the food was delicious. I agree with the previous laundry comment - I was pleased with the prompt laundry service. Walking to Monterosso was an easy short distance for shopping and additional restaurant options. The beach is also a short walk to the bottom of the hill and the hotel has a private area with designated chairs and umbrellas. If you drive (which we did) you park at the main parking lot in town and a taxi driver whisks you up to the hotel. If you are on the train the track runs right though town but a taxi is recommended to get to the hotel unless you want to drag your suitcases up a steep hill. One of the best features is the Cinque Terre path to Vernazza is through gate on the hotel property making it easy to start the hour and half trek. We hiked the trails, rode the trains and also the ferry to visit all the beautiful Cinque Terre towns. Cinque Terre is a must see if you are in Italy. No question we would return to Hotel Porto Roca again.

Hotel Porto Roca is perched on the cliff at the end of Monterosso with magnificent views of the sea, the sky and the rugged cliffs of the Cinque Terre. Designed to take advantage of the view from every room: reception, the guest rooms, the outdoor terrace, the bar and the restaurant this hotel fulfills the dream of a remote Mediterranean holiday. Exiting from the hotel’s side gate, you join the “Five Lands” hiking trail through magnificent coast scenery and terraced olive groves and tiny wineries. A short walk down the hill towards the Old Town and you are at a little, private beach. The staff is friendly and welcoming and the rooms large and comfortable, most with a beautiful balcony overlooking the sea.

Room Tip: Choose a room with view of the sea - it's worth it.

Our stay at Port Roca was wonderful. The staff is excellent...welcoming, always attentive, patient and truly (I know this is a cliche) treat you like family. Our sea view junior suite was excellent, the bath facilities luxurious and the sunsets (or anytime of day) were beautiful. Great attention to details (laundry was back, coded and stacked in an afternoon. Again the staff makes this great hotel a wonderful and memorable experience.

Room Tip: Sea view rooms are a must and well worth it.

This Hotel is clean friendly well run and had views to die for none of the photos do it justice we stayed in room 103 a Junior Suite with what seemed to be a double balcony. We would recommend it to anyone. Older style and decor of course but it has Soul!

Good seaview rooms. Excellent bed. Good service in the hotel. There is a transfer from railway station to the hotel – it is necessary to call them or to write the letter. Hotel silent – it is not audible that occurs in the city, the railway doesn't disturb. There are places on a beach. Minibar is not free. The Internet is free, works well.
There are no tea facilities in the rooms. Hot water and ice can be taken only in a bar. If they bring hot water or ice to your room – this service cost 5 Euros. The breakfast doesn't correspond to hotel 4*. The small choice of dishes, isn't present fish, a hot dish only one – fried eggs and bacon. For an hour before the breakfast termination many dishes already came to an end. Such breakfast is not more than 3*. At restaurant service was good, but food of average quality. Some dishes were good, and some not so. The hotel is located on the mountain – each time it is necessary to go up-down. The price too big – the main money you pay for a view of the sea!

We booked the small cottage room and really liked it even though it was small. Views were fantastic. The staff was really great and helped us with everything from dining to taxis to train travel. Will definitely come back!

Room Tip: The cottage is off by itself so you do not get any adjacent guest room noise.
