Very very beautiful setting on the Italian Mediterranean. Since our first visit here in 2006 we knew we have to come back. The hotel is amazing, calm and relaxed. Old classic charm, but the room was comfy, modern renovated, well equipped, aircon was excellent. Didn't get the sea view, but the view of the Teguillo gulf and Santa-Margherita was the... More

This hotel is really magnificent situated. The vieuws on the Mediterranean as well as the picturesque city of Santa Margarita are unsurpassed. The garden is a delight and extremely well looked after. The rooms are well presented, very clean and with every facility you could wish for. The staff are very friendly, helpful and efficient with a pleasant personal touch.... More

We actually made a move from Rapallo to Santa Margherita after visiting this hotel. We were able to cancel our reservation at Rapallo and managed to find a room here for a night, mostly to use their nice swimming area by the sea. While the rooms were small (and retro - looking), it was comfortable. We had a nice ocean... More

Dear Mr Kentan8, Thank you for choosing our Hotel and for your suggestions which will be taken into a consideration as we usual do. We are sorry for the misunderstanding about the cost of the sun chairs at the beach but it's not true that you were not informed of this extra cost simply because at the time of your... More

My wife and I have just returned from our second stay at the Hotel Continental. We were slightly anxious before we went - Might the hotel have changed since last year? Might standards have slipped? Did we have rose-tinted memories of our previous visit? We need not have worried. We were delighted to see many of the same staff at... More

The best sea view over the gulf of Santa Margherita, conveniently located walking distance from everything. Great private swimming area, gorgeous gardens. A plus: dogs accepted A minus: hotel guests are charged to use the "beach" chairs and sun umbrellas (like any other outside person who is not staying at the hotel). The staff is very friendly and service-oriented, although... More

Hotel Continental(e) is a beautiful, historic hotel in a gorgeous location overlooking the bay of Santa Margherita and the coastline towards Portofino. There are some more luxurious hotels in town, and in neighbouring Rapallo, but we found the Continental(e) to be very nice. Some reviewers commented that the furniture is "old" and it's true that the hotel has a kind... More

Santa Margherita makes you feel like you are in one of the 60's celebrity bays. Everything is elegant, especially the location of the hotel is amazing. The time period that we were there was not ideal for the waterfront but I imagine it will be wonderful by the summertime. Willing to go again.
