There are some times you just need to spend the money to get a great hotel in a great location. As you can imagine, a sea-front property on the Ligurian Riveria with its own private beach is not going to come cheaply. However, I have nothing but positives about our four nights at the Cenobio Dei Dogi.
Camogli is a small gem of a town located about 15 miles east of Genova and features a charming small harbor still populated by fishing boats. When combined with the tall classic Ligurian house painted with different colors, you will feel like you are living in a postcard of Italy
The Cenobio dei Dogi is a large older hotel with typically small rooms. However, you are not here to spend time in your room, are you? What you really want is that breakfast in the beautiful dinner room with a floor to ceiling view of Camogli and the Mediterranean sea. The breakfast is generous and elegant. They have a private beach plus a swiming pool. However, during our stay in October, the sea was actually warmer than the pool. Did I mention the cocktail bar on the deck overlooking the sea where you can have an aperol spritz , wine, or a cocktail while watching the sunset? We chose to eat in small restaurants in Camogli instead of paying the high prices at the hotel restaurant. There are many excellent options within walking distance
From Camogli, you can catch the train which can take you either into Genova or to the Cinque Terre. The train station is about 100 yards from the hotel, but you must negotiate about 70 steps to reach it. You may encounter business groups having conferences at this hotel because of the location and amenities.
I found everything here to be enjoyable. Highly recommended.
