Let's start to get it straight: this is not a design hotel, this is not a posh trendy hotel, if you are looking for a modern accomodation, you won't find it here.

If you are looking instead for the best of "retro" charme you are in the right place.

Here you will find an awesome historical building, you will feel to be back at the beginning of '900: statues everywhere, paintings, tall ceilings, marble floors and walls...seems to be in a museum!

from the main buidling there is a beautiful hallway through gardens of trees and flowers, and you arrive to the private beach: first you have a swimming pool, next to a bar/restaurant and then down a private beach, directly on the sea, from which you can see all the gulf of santa margherita ligure.

the restaurant serves amazing italian dishes, at a very fair price, considering that you are in a 5star hotel. the dinner is served in a balcony, from which you can see the sea. The service is perfect, the maitre will suggest the dishes that best fits for you.

Breakfast is huge, and delicious, there is a huge array of freshly made pastries, and salty food too.

Yes it is expensive, and no, it's not brand new. But you won't find another classier hotel like this. It's a timetravel back in the past, worth all the money.

This is not a hotel for business travelers. The wireless is non-existent. The blow dryer on the wall is nothing more than a whisper. But, the location and the views are awesome. I particularly loved sitting out on the cliff by the pool to relax and read. Santa Marguerita is absolutely charming. Most everything is within walking distance-- even Portofino, only 3 miles. You must have dinner at Antonio's, everything is made from scratch and amazing.

we travelled through Europe from April to June 2011 and this was one of our favourite hotels amongst many beautiful experiences. We were fortunate to have beautiful panoramic ocean views and views over SML harbour from our spacious and clean room.
We revelled in the surroundings and beauty of this area.
A fabulous location for a base to explore Cinque Terre, Portovenere and Portofino and SML itself. Magnificent area of Magnificent Italy.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view, preferrably higher up.

Perhaps this hotel is not a 5 star but we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Contrary to other reviews, the staff was always helpful and gracious. The morning buffet was excellent and the setting was gorgeous. We asked to change rooms on the first day as the first room did not have a good view or balcony and this was not a problem. Yes, the hotel is expensive and perhaps the rooms are slightly tired looking but overall, the hotel is really beautiful. We loved sitting on the terrace each night to enjoy a relaxing pre or post dinner drink. The wait staff were always extremely pleasant and so friendly. The location of the hotel is excellent as well. It is close to the train station and situated in the middle of a charming town.
The bathroom's ammenities provided were fine and we found the room to be spotless.
