We traveled by train and took a cab from the station the short distance to the hotel - perhaps 1.5 miles, past the town of Santa Margherita Ligure to the hotel....

The hotel has a very nice, large swimming pool and pretty gardens. It is across the street from a beach which was quite crowded but still enjoyable. Santa Margherita is located between the Cinque Terre and Portofino. We spent a nice few days exploring that part of Liguria. The concierge recommended several good restaurants within walking distance of the hotel....

This hotel has true Italian style. Building, garden and pool are all very classy and the service is outstanding with great attention to detail. Probably the best breakfast I have had in a large hotel. The hotel is directly located on the waterfront within easy walking distance to restaurants and the beautiful promenade.
