We elected to take the hotels limo transfer to and from the airport which is hassle free and only a small premium over a cab. The check in was efficient and friendly. The reception team are top notch and can't do enough for you.
Our room, number 10, was plenty big enough with a walk in shower/wet room. It was road side but this didn't really cause an issue it's a relatively quiet part of Portofino.
The hotel is 5 minutes walk from the harbour and the walk is pleasant past some very exclusive shops.
Breakfast was hosted by a charming lady who was very attentive although I personally found the selection a bit limited.
We visited their sister hotel one day and paid !00 Euros for 2 sunbeds on their beach which is way over the top. Unsurprisingly the beach was only a third full and you wonder if they just want to keep it exclusive by pricing most right minded people out? Still at least we had our own space away from the public areas which can be a bit of a bun fight at weekends on this bit of the Italian coastline.
All in all once you have factored in Portofino pricing a very pleasant and relaxing stay.
