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.

                                              • Wonderful view from the balcony, buses and train travel is cheap and regular, very nice beach club for sunbathing. Good and tasty menu for room service, is not always the case even in good hotels, the customer facing staff are polite, helpful and friendly. Great food from the bar we didn't try the restaurant, facilities are fantastic.

                                                The pool area can get a little overcrowded and noisy, taxis are way too expensive, the mattress is too soft. Breakfast could be better.

                                                Very expensive room surroundings were noisy.

                                              • Very pleasant, great view and excellent beach facilities. The decor was wonderful and the Reception staff were extremely knowledgeable and helpful. The room was well appointed, the bar was lovely too and the restaurant was amazing.

                                                Very high prices for value, toilet was about 3 to 4 inches too low and breakfast was very poor.

                                              • The location is amazing, the pool is fantastic and you are on a cliff overlooking the Med Sea, we used the hotel as a starting point to visit the Cinque Terre. The staff is great and rooms are lovely. The breakfasts are very nice.

                                                The view was excellent and the service was a little slow sometimes. Food and drinks were very expensive.

                                              • Great outside sitting area and private beach/pool. Very nice and comfortable hotel, all for good prices, the bathroom had lovely marble and a Western style shower. Staff were very friendly, the rooms were excellent and the food in the Lord Byron restaurant for dinner was exceptional as was the service all over. I used the spa for a massage and mud treatment and was wonderful.

                                                Many facilities are closed during off peak periods.

                                              • The views are spectacular and the town is a seaside town and we really liked. This hotel is very nice to spend some days and then move to another hotel in another city, angelo at the front desk is simply wonderful, the rooms are large and the bathrooms are immaculate, tiled and very clean. The food is good, the pool is lovely and worth taking time at.

                                                Bad quality, bad variety and free in lobby. The beach is closed.
