Sitting on a terrace, looking out at the Mediteranian Sea and drinking wine on my birthday followed by a dip in the pool was such a memorable experience. The breakfast that was included was excellent. We stayed there so we could also visit Portifino, but in the end I enjoyed Santa Margarita more, probably because of my stay here.

Just blocks from the noisy water front is the Hotel Minerva offering unique modern rooms with a full scale breakfast in the garden. From the rooftop pool and workout center you can enjoy a view of the bay. Portifino is just a boat ride or walk away. That means you can escape the tourist groups of Portifino and enjoy a...

Our stay was very relaxing. I can't say enough great things about the helpful Staff....everything was taken care of including valet car parking. The staff was available at all times to help with directions and advice on restaurants. Every morning we were welcomed to excellent, well presented dishes which are included with the stay.

Minerva was a dream place to stay. Frederika and her brother Andrei were the loveliest people to help with any request. The hotel is meticulously clean and a very pleasant environment to be in. We had a deck off our room with a table and chairs which enabled us to have a drink in pleasant surroundings. The breakfast is superb...

Stayed here 6 nights. Although hotel is slightly jammed in back street? It's in a food location with easy access to all local santa margherita shops, restaurants and all other places. Staff very accommodating and friendly which really makes this place.

This hotel is worth staying in simply for the rooftop deck and adjacent , reservable spa area. Wow- what a view, and what a treat. Our room and bathroom were very small, but fine for just one night. Most importantly, our room and all shared areas were spic-and-span, and we appreciated the small touches like pastries and a bottle of...

We had a great stay in hotel Minerva, the employees were without exception extremely helpful and nice. The top floor with jacuzzi has a great view over the sea. We were positively surprised with the city, it's in the middle between other only sight seeing cities, has more space than them, much nicer restaurants and activities. A little tip, if...

Stayed here a few weeks ago and the hotel Couldn't have been any friendlier, instant check in before the specified time, and they also parked my car for me. The manager was lovely and very helpful Would definitely recommend staying here to anyone in the local area!

The most friendly and hospitable hotel I have ever stayed in, 3 stars does not do it justice. The hotel staff are not only extremely knowledgable about pretty much everything, but go out of their way to make your stay the most amazing experience possible, and the facilities are top notch (roof deck, great breakfast, sauna etc.). I would definitely...

My partner and I stayed here last month. Family run, perfect location, slightly away from the main bars/ restaurants and busy beaches. Closer beach wasn't half as expensive or busy. I paid €20 for a sun bed and umbrella for the day at Bagni Sirena. We chose this particular hotel as it was very close to Portofino divers which my...
