Hotel Santa Margherita Palace sits just steps from the seafront in Santa Margherita Ligure, on the Italian Riviera. This four-star boutique gem manages to pull off designer sleek interiors with a relaxing, comfortable feel, which is no mean feat. Its overall look is glossy monochrome, softened with shades of grey and splashes of color, fronted by a team of welcoming staff and some fantastic facilities.
After a day of lounging on the beach or exploring the scenic coastline, head to the spa area, equipped with a sauna, Turkish bath and an invigoration shower, plus a team of professionals offering a relaxing menu of treatments. There’s also a lazy lounge bar serving coffee by day and post-dinner cocktails by night, plus a lovely garden with tables, chairs and umbrellas. The hotel provides the perfect base to see the Italian Riviera in ultra-modern style.
How to Get There
This hotel was so sleek and beautiful! The staff could not have been more attentive... from answering our endless questions for directions and restaurant recommendations, to volunteering to pack us HUGE boxed breakfasts to catch our early train, to a yummy welcome platter of fruits and chocolate, we were spoiled from the moment we arrived. The suite was spectacular (too bad we never did use that huge jacuzzi), the breakfast delicious (though i only realized on the last day that you could order eggs the way you wanted them), the aperitivo outside was beautiful -- how could you miss with gorgeous decor, yummy nibbles and ice cold wine? Just a three minute walk from the train station and a 5 minute walk into the town centre made this ideally located too. Only complaint - bathroom lighting is too bright!
I would recommend this property to anyone who wants to explore portofino (a 10 minute bus ride away) or doesn't mind a bit of a train ride to get to cinque terre (i heard there were no hotels of this caliber in those small towns). If you love W Hotels, you will love this place!
My wife and I had a really nice experience in this hotel. We stayed here for 5 nights and although this was perhaps slightly too long to stay in Santa Margherita, we can’t really fault the hotel.
The staff were friendly and the room was very modern. It is a very quick walk to and from the station (5 minutes with luggage) and located not far from some very nice restaurants within the old town.
I don't recommend this place. The service is awful!
My brother-in-low reserved fo us the apartment at LHP with prepayment option at hotels.com. At the checkin the hotel charged him for the apartment again and said that hotels.com has just blocked money on his card. As a result he was double charged for the apartment. He hasn't got his money back yet, although LHP confirmed that they had made a mistake!
