After our long journey from South Africa we were warmly welcomed by Alex and Roberto and offered a complimentary drink on their patio in the beautiful garden overlooking the breathtaking Bay of Silence. The views are just stunning. We were immediately so thrilled with our choice of Hotel in Sestri Levante as it is just beautiful, immaculate and very clean. Our bags were taken up to our room for us by Roberto and he also showed us to our lovely room overlooking the bay with a balcony. The hotel is situated in the most beautiful setting overlooking the bay and the lounge and bar area is really beautifully decorated and amazing attention to detail. The infinity swimming pool is absolutely gorgeous set in a beautiful garden and it was heated to 32 degrees when we were there. It was just heaven swimming in the pool! The breakfast was a fine buffet where you helped yourself to fruit, cereals, ham, cheese, salami, eggs, Italian cakes and pastries and then sat on the patio in the garden overlooking the beautiful bay. Thanks to Alex for his helpful tips and also to Leonardo for his GTS"s (Gin and Tonic Specials) which were divine and which we used to enjoy every evening before going to dinner with some nibbles (snacks). The hotel also has a roof terrace as well with comfy loungers and amazing views. Sestri Levante is a wonderful area to make a base to visit Cinque Terra, Portofino, Santa Margarhita, Porto Venere and all of the wonderful places that there are to visit either by boat or by train or of course by car if you have a car. Sestri Levante is also a very beautiful town to explore with its cobbled streets and full of character and charm. We will most definitely be back to stay at this hotel and can highly recommend. Thank you to Alex, Roberto and Leonardo for your hospitality and for a most wonderful and memorable stay. Pam and Steve Lord, Cape Rose Cottage, Camps Bay, Cape Town, South Africa
