“It is an enchanting place which makes you dream”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2012

View is breathtaking, rooms are very comfortable, modern and very clean. Hotel is cosy and service is great. I had a couple of requests and staff was very helpful. Breakfast is fresh and with lots of choices for savoury and sweet. The walk back and forth from the town is wonderful and one of the reasons we went back this year, with the spectacular view and the fragrance of the pines in the air. The free shuttle service is also great though if it is not possible to walk.
It is really a wonderful place and look forward to going back there!

I stayed in July and really enjoyed this hotel. The staff were pleasant and did their best to be as helpful as they could. I was only staying for 3 nights so did not get a room with a view however the room i had was clean with plenty of space - happy with that. The breakfast was fine and you could help yourself to as much as you wanted. It is true that this hotel is away from the town so you need to plan your day in order to get the shuttles there and back - but if the shuttle was full they did come back and get you after the 1st drop off - the shuttle drivers were helpful in getting luggage in and out - dont think this service could be improved any. Best of all are the views, even if your room doesnt look out, there are a few garden rooms where you can sit comfortably to view or read or just relax with a drink - drinks, coffe or a snack may be ordered from the bar inside. If you want a clean, quiet, relaxing place to stay - this is it.

We stayed three nights at the Bellevue. We didn't have high expectations because this was intended as one of the more economical hotels on our 11 day trip around Northern Italy. We used the hotel simply as the base from which to explore the area (and go to the beach) so didn't spend much more than a few hours there each day. The shuttle bus up and down the hill was very useful and we found no problems with the driving - it was reliable and got us to where we wanted to go. The staff were pleasant enough but I wouldn't say overly friendly and welcoming, although one of the younger girls on reception was lovely. Breakfasts were adequate (plentiful but not imaginative).
The highlight of the hotel is of course, the view (which is magnificent) and it was always nice each morning to enjoy it while we drank our coffee (and our sons played table tennis), before getting on the shuttle bus into the village.
Generally we were very happy with the hotel, bearing in mind that we were so in love with the area anyway that it would have had to have been a really bad experience to change the positive memory of our stay.

Room Tip: You may need to specifically request a room with a balcony and a view (we didn't).

We stayed here two nights. We chose it because it had free parking. It's a crazy drive to get there but what do you expect in Italy! The hotel is up the hill from the beach, it's a steep walk home if you miss the shuttle bus. The shuttle bus driver had a death wish and drove like a maniac! Obviously he's familiar with the roads but we were gripping our seats. The breakfast was average, not very exciting but adequate. The room was clean, new bathroom made it nicer. Service was good. No free wi-fi though which should be standard these days.

This is our second visit to the Suisse Hotel Bellevue. What took us back to the hotel a second time was Bach the dog, the killer view from the property, and the great view from our room. Those three things are the positives of the hotel.

The negatives of the hotel, oh where do I begin. There are rules, rules, rules everywhere. Do this, do that, don't do this, don't do that. The property was more like a kindergarten classroom with rules posted everywhere than a hotel that should cater to those who are paying to stay there.

The staff is HORRIBLY UNFRIENDLY. One staff memeber made up false charges that we were going to have to pay if we returned our beach towels everyday for a fresh one in the morning. We were told that this would cost us one euro per person. This was on the last day of our five day visit.

We had friends that stayed at the hotel the same time that we did. The hotel staff neglected to tell them about the beach towels that were available for use, the discounted beach chairs, and the breakfast.

I would suggest looking into another hotel and my family and I will do in two years.

+ great great view
+ large room
+ free parking

- shuttle bus to the village and back is only every hour (annoying!)
- poor breakfast (complicated personal)
- internet for one hour costs 5 euro (too expensive!)
- cleaning ladys chat around in the mornign and the rooms are very clairaudient (you hear every word!)
- staff is correct but not really friendly and warm

fazit:
- awsome panorama
- i wouldn't recommend this place if there wasn't this view

We stayed here july 2012. We had booked a room with a view but unfortunately the room had a huge tree just in front. But otherwise it'a nice hotel - with a great view (actually) and a roomthat was big. But the location - since it's on a top of a hill almost - you are forced to plan your trips down to the beach and up to the hotel again. Can be some hassle since there's only one bus/car and several hotel guests.
