Opulent and fabulous.

From check in to check out it was a perfect stay. The hotel is so beautiful. The staff were so lovely and friendly. Special thanks to Alice who ensured we had a magnificent room. The views are breathtaking. The breakfast was delicious which included prosecco. The beach club setting is spectacular. I loved that your sun lounger was guaranteed unlike most hotels. Pools jacuzzi and direct sea access. If you can ...stay here.

Perfect stay on the Italian Riviera

What a beautiful and elegant hotel! We enjoyed every aspect of our stay - the rooms, the location, the elegant fit-out everywhere, the fantastic breakfast with breathtaking views - and the superb work of all the employees! Big compliments to Angelo Cipollina, one of the best concierges I have ever dealt with! Got us reservations everywhere, no questions asked!
We will be back for very sure! Thank you!

Beautiful Setting

Beautiful 5 Star Hotel with exquisite views, great location to explore Italian Rivera. Excellent service with friendly staff. Rooms are classic design with traditional Italian marble bathroom. We visited during August which was very humid and found the Air Con not to be very effective and had to be moved from our original room, but were upgraded to a more spacious room where the air conditioning seemed to be more effective which was far more comfortable.
The pool and spa facilities were superb.
Three levels of decks with plenty of loungers with the most amazing views and had direct ocean access. The only negative here was there was no service in this area which was very unusual for a five star hotel and one had go and place their own orders and take their drinks back down to their loungers not ideal. The staff were excellent very friendly and helpful.
