“American's watch out”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2005

The hotel, while lovely with a great view, was overshadowed by the pushy restraunt guy, trying to sell us food we didn't want and overcharging us at every opportunity. I think 30 Euro for 2 cups of coffee is a little steep. OUr lunch in which we had a bottle of wine, 2 pastas and a shared salad was $122 Euro, they made a point of not telling you the price of anything and then gauging you on the way out with your food bill. 32 euro for coffee and brioche in the morning. It was a shame, because the hotel was lovely and the girl Daniela at the front desk was a gem, but a few times we encountered what to be a seperate price structure for Americans and were offended at the thought.

As soon as we turned into the Bay of Paraggi on our way to Portofino, I knew I wanted to stay there. Fortunately, we couldn't park our car in Portofino and were sent back to Paraggi to Park'n'ride back to Portofino. Out of curiostity I went into the hotel and asked if they had a room available, the cost and MOST importantly did they accept dogs? They welcomed our dog, showed us the best room they had that they felt would be most suitable for the dog, gave us a special price and had us hooked. The room although very small was very tasteful and comfortable. The balcony was about as big as the room and was directly over the small private beach with a wonderful view of the sea and the bay. The bus stop which was very close by ran a regular bus service in to Portofino which took about 5 minutes. I loved Portofino and felt as though I had died and gone to Heaven! I couldn't wait to get back to the hotel and have dinner in their lovely restaurant right on the sea. We had a lovely table near the sea and could hear the waves lapping. The food was excellent and so was the service. The setting was very romantic with candles and flowers, the theme was 'white', which I love. I was so excited that night that I couldn't sleep and sat on the balcony most of the evening listening to the sea. I was a travel agent, have travelled the world and stayed in some of the best hotels in the world, but this one is probably one of the most charming. I'm back in April for my 50th birthday.
