The hotel sits on the picturesque hill side with cascading gardens reaching the sea below. This is the only hotel in Santa Margherita directly on the shore with unobstracted views of the sea and harbor. Located about 500 meters from the town center the Continental enjoys peace and quiet with no foot traffic. Our room on the fourth floor was located on the side of the building and had huge 8' x 30' balcony with a couple of tables with chairs. Views of sunsets and the town below lit with soft orange tint at night were just breathtaking. Add to this a bottle of excelent local wine and cheese and you get the picture.
Room was better than we had expected - very comfortable if slightly outdated. But it featured Japanise-made toilette which was trying to do everything for you, even without being asked.
We used the hotel as a home base and spent all days doing short side trips in the mountains. Tiny vilages, castles, chirches were spectacular, food - great, wine - superb!. But best of all were people, friendly, understanging, helping in every way. Hotel staff did not have any problems with English, vilagers did not care - they just made sure we would understand them, and we did!
