4/10 Fair

The hotel offers fantastic view of Sestri Levante. Bar, restaurant and pool facilities all good. We had issues with WiFi, shower door and size of room. Also an issue was a €12 charge per day for parking which was not mentioned at the start.

Wonderful hotel for families
Absolutely beautiful view from this charming hotel. We had a family room with bunk beds and a big patio. Large pool area with food/drink service. We didn’t enjoy the expensive restaurant. Nether the food or service was worthy of the price tag.

Like a dream
A magical spot on a hill overlooking the Mediterranean. Helpful and friendly staff, breakfast and lunch and a true treat, found dinner to be a little too old school for our tastes. Swimming pool could use a good scrub, but it’s a gorgeous spot. Would stay there again in a heart beat.
