Editorial review:

This wonderful hotel is only a few minutes away from Portofino by car. It's overlooking the bay of Rapallo and gives guests a good location from which to explore the Italian Riviera. The Beach Club is praised for its amazing setting, and the friendly, dedicated staff bends over backwards for guests. The rooms are lavish and the breakfast is worth what the room itself costs, according to some.

                      • Older travelers

                        The staff was great very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was included and wonderful. Gorgeous views if you are on the sea side of the hotel, nice balcony and comfortable room. We had a lovely dinner at the hotel one night and the wait staff was very good. We used the hotel as a starting point to visit the Cinque Terre. It was easy to get there from the hotel by train. We took a city bus and went to Portofino and Santa Margharita Ligure.

                        No free wifi in the hotel. It's a little out of downtown Rapallo and there is no courtesy car. The cab ride from the train station to the hotel was outrageous.
