My husband and I stayed 3 nights in the Cinque Terre at Porto Roca and enjoyed it very much.
Our room was extremely comfortable. We had a suite facing the sea, which consisted of a bedroom and adjacent sitting room, a good-sized bathroom and a large balcony which had 2 chaise lounge chairs as well as a small table and 2 chairs. The bed was nice and firm and very comfortable with flat heavy pillows, but when I requested a soft, feather pillow it was supplied immediately. The windows are equipped with shutters and drapes which are perfectly effective for those of us who like to sleep in a very dark room. Climate control in the room was adjustable and quiet. The bathroom was modern and clean with one of those European combined bath/shower/spa units with excellent water pressure. There was a very large closet. Maid service was once a day, no turn down (who cares). In short, although I've been in many more luxurious places, this room was as comfortable, clean, modern and well equipped as one could ask for. It's only drawback was poor internet service.
Breakfast in the dining room has ample choices, you can also have it in your room. Every member of the staff was helpful, polite, welcoming and appropriate. A drink on the outside terrace of the restaurant is a delightful experience, an eqxuisite setting and perfectly mixed cocktails. The hotel has reserved chairs on the lovely beach at the bottom of the hill which we enjoyed in the late afternoon after a day of hiking. It also has a sundeck, but no pool.
We loved the hotel's location, perched above the sea with spectacular views, just a short walk into the center of the delightful town of Monterosso in one direction and right onto the hiking trail in the other direction. A caveat if you have health problems: the walk into town is a short, but steep, paved road.
In short, we felt very lucky we had selected Porto Roca for our stay in the Cinque Terre. If we return to the region we will definitely stay there again.
