About the location
Holidays in Santa Margherita, situated on the Gulf of Tigullio between Rapallo
, offer an enticing combination of that glorious style which Italians bring to their seaside resorts. An unrivalled natural environment meets thought provoking cultural attractions and great food and entertainment.
It’s a lovely resort for couples, full of life, full of opportunity but also with space and time to take it easy, to enjoy each other’s company and to enjoy the Riviera experience. The beaches, where you can hire deckchairs, sunbeds and umbrellas, are a mix of public and private and primarily pebble with just a few sandy ones. But move closer to Portofino, around five kilometres away, and you’ll discover more sandy beaches. A great example is the beautiful Paraggi Beach, which is surrounded by all the bars and restaurants you will ever need.
If pebbles or sand between your toes are not for you, there are some really nice gardens and open spaces to enjoy on your holidays in Santa Margherita.
The hotel is 45 minutes from Genoa airport. Return private transfers included. To change your transfers or book car hire instead, simply call us once you’ve completed your booking.

Have stayed at this hotel 4 or 5 times as have other members of the family. I reviewed it in 2017 under the title "seaside luxury" Our latest stay was for 4 nights in a room with a sea view. The room was super-comfortable, with a small terrace. It had effective air conditioning, a fridge and a good bathroom.
The breakfast was impeccable and the facilities and service including pool and a well stocked poolside bar left nothing to be desired.
Basically it is still an excellent hotel. COVID means that more of the guests are Italian, and that there are precautions to be taken, but these are handled without spoiling one's enjoyment.
Guests' cars are now conveniently accomodated in the nearby new but unobtrusive municipal car park,
We, and other members of the family, have enjoyed our time at the hotel very much.

This is a truly grand hotel in every way, the setting, the design, the food, the service, the gardens, and the view. We booked a suite and loved it. The hotel is maintained to perfection with everything in superb condition. The breakfast whether inside or on the terrace is wonderful with great service. The pool is magnificent. The sea is steps away. The live piano music at night in the bar area and the ambience is so inviting. We really could not love this place more. Such a special building too in this lovely village of Santa Margarita. For our first night we walked to Bistro Altro Eden 4 minute walk away based on hotel recommendation. Simple setting on the lovely marina but the food is INCREDIBLE. The pasta is so good we returned a second time before we left because we had to have it again. But even on one rainy night we ordered room service and that was also fantastic. Fully recommend this beautiful hotel.
