Bizarrely TripAdvisor does not seem to realise that although the Splendido and the Splendido Mare are both Belmond hotels in Portofino, they are quite separate buildings some distance apart and should really each have their own entry.
We stayed at the Splendido Mare, having stayed at the Splendido four years ago,, and wondered if it might be not be quite up to the same standards as the latter. In fact it exceeded our expectations and is one of the loveliest hotels we have ever stayed in. From the moment you arrives you are greeted as though you are the most important guest they have had in weeks. The rooms are gorgeous, the atmosphere is intimate but relaxed and the setting, right on the harbour of Portofino, is incomparable. Yes, the Spendido up the hill is one of the world's greatest hotels, but the Mare is in its own way more than a match.More
