Editorial review:

This wonderful hotel is only a few minutes away from Portofino by car. It's overlooking the bay of Rapallo and gives guests a good location from which to explore the Italian Riviera.

                              The staff was great very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was included and wonderful. Gorgeous views if you are on the sea side of the hotel, nice balcony and comfortable room. We had a lovely dinner at the hotel one night and the wait staff was very good. We used the hotel as a starting point to visit the Cinque Terre. It was easy to get there from the hotel by train. We took a city bus and went to Portofino and Santa Margharita Ligure.

                              No free wifi in the hotel. It's a little out of downtown Rapallo and there is no courtesy car. The cab ride from the train station to the hotel was outrageous.

                              The view from the window overlooking the sea. Choice of restaurants including one right next to the sea. Access to private swimming area in the sea. Parking available.

                              Very expensive. Staff rather abrupt. Breakfast more 3* than 5*. Only one very small bottle of water in the room. Wi-fi cost extra.

                              Nothing -overpriced

                              Staff were arrogant. Hard to reach without a car, overpriced for what is was, dated decor.

                              Great location. and great outside sitting area.

                              Staff was not helpful. The room has old furniture. When making a booking, make sure you request a good view. I requested a sea and a high floor,, instead, I got a low floor and viewing a nearby house and a/c facilities. Don't book the classic room fi you are looking for a decent room and a nice view

                              The location within rapallo was good, but we mainly wanted to see portofino, so we took a boat to portofino. Generally it was a good hotel, the food was generally good. The pool is really nice too, although a bit too small. We had booked 2 rooms. One room had a complimentary bottle of lemon liquor waiting for us, and the other did not. However, when we told them, they gave the other room one bottle as well.

                              The rooms were a bit run down. The breakfast was not a good 5 star hotel breakfast. When my 70 yr old father asked for a glass of water at breakfast to take his medicine, he was told to get it himself from the buffet and he was fuming! That is not a good service for a 5 star hotel! Overall EUR 420 was too much for a room in this hotel.

                              The premises and the rooms are excellent. We had booked a deluxe double with a sea view and it was a spacious room, well decorated with the most fantastic bed ever and, of course, a to-die-for view!! The swimming pool area is also fantastic with a small but adequate eternity pool overlooking a breathtaking scenery.

                              Nothing of great importance, really. The service was a little slow sometimes. The biggest minus for that sort of room rate was the breakfast buffet. Really basic, no salmon for example and generally not enough choices. We were very disappointed when we ordered fried eggs sunny side, up to find out, once they brought them (20mins later), that we were being charged extra for themI This is something that has never happened to us before in a 5 star hotel of that sort of caliber.

                              The location is amazing, in particular the infinity pool and having breakfast on the terrace facing the Tigullio gulf. We found a complimentary bottle of champagne with strawberries at arrival, which we really appreciated as we were celebrating a special occasion.

                              Minor details, like we did not have a kettle in the room and the fact that newspapers or internet connection were not free of charge. Also, we booked a superior double room but the room was not very spacious.

                              Location and lovely view from hotel room window. We were there a very short time so did not get to use all the hotel facilities.

                              We were very disappointed with the meal we had in the Lord Byron restaurant - not value for money. The courses were very expensive but the food we had was very mediocre. Breakfast was good however.

                              Position and location. The beds were comfortable and the room was really clean. Nice pool outside.

                              I payed 80 Euro extra to get a small extra bed for my baby.
