We stayed here for our mini-honeymoon after our destination wedding in Italy. This was a true 4 star European hotel. Some of the perks included the close but quiet location of the hotel at the end of the Camogli promenade and a private beach and pool.
FACILITY/ROOMS: We arrived via car, the valet parking took our car (no cost to park). The front desk service was very nice and got us checked into our room very quickly. The hotel is definitely older but still with the Italian charm. We made it to our room. We had the standard sea view room, which was small but functional. The safe in the room was old, built into the wall with a key. The bed was only queen size. There was a musty smell to entire hotel which could have been from the sea. Our window and shutter shades opened widely to a beautiful view of the Camogli promenade and sea (also to the hotels pool). The bathroom again small but functional with plenty of toiletries provided (shower gel, lotion, shampoo). The front desk had plenty of umbrellas to use when it rained. The pool area was nice but somewhat limited in the number of chairs. We did spend some time on the beach where there was lots of chairs (we were just not used to the rocky beach.)
FOOD: We slept in the first morning a miss breakfast, we did have breakfast the second morning (which was included in the price). It was a traditional European continental breakfast. The selections were just ok, but there was a lot to choose from. The view was great overlooking the sea. (We had just wished there was outdoor seating to enjoy the great view). We did have dinner at one of the restaurants out on the terrace overlooking the sea. The food was FANTASTIC and the wine list with some incredible finds.
BOTTOM LINE: Camogli is a WONDERFUL Lugorian seaside town! As my husband and are always looking for the best “bang for the buck” this is it! When comparing to Portofino (which we did visit but did not stay) we found Camogli to have so much more charm, very affordable, and the food wonderful. And the hotel is THE PLACE to stay in Camogli (perfectly located, great price and overall great stay).
