                      • Older travelers

                        The view from room and size of bedroom, great comfort

                        Location, too far from centre, lacked atmosphere, a few small touches would have made the difference, pool area very stark, no one in bar most of the time, had to ask at reception when requiring a cup of coffee

                        The staff was helpfull. The location is to distant for walking to restaurants and the main part of town.

                        Not turning on the air conditioning after advertising that the hotel is air conditioned is very dissapointing.

                        Nice place. Room (superior double ) was clean and spacious enough for 2, but shower was very small. Nice pool and beautiful view.

                        Not as close to the downtown area as I thought and no shuttle to Rapallo shopping/beach (they need to correct that, even though it is a nice walk down the promenade to the beach area). Staying there requires a car/scooter if you want to see the area...

                        Nice pool and clean hotel.

                        Some staff seems quite new and are very noisy especially in the restaurants. Food needs to be improved.

                        Great swimming pool, nice view, comfortable/large enough room, friendly staff, nice bathroom. Breakfast was suprisingly good, as i had read in Booked.net to expect it very basic. Should definately try the stawberry frozen daquiry at the pool bar! Overall a nice hotel to spend a few relaxed days.

                        Basic amenities in the bathroom (shower gel, shampoo & shower cap) for such an expensive hotel! To be considered a superior hotel they could offer a few more "luxuries" which don't cost that much (i.e. candles in the room, a CD player, coffee table and chairs at the great view balconies, a bathrobe, slippers). In general i thought it was very pricey.

                        Very nice hotel in good location with a friendly and helpful staff. The hotel manager, Cynthia was especially helpful.

                        There were very few tv channels and nothing in English.

                        The shower in the single room was too small to allow any movement, even closing the door!

                        Comfortable hotel, good facilities.

                        Poor breakfast of tinned fruit and packaged cereals. Unfriendly staff. No smiles. Very much a business hotel. Poor lunch facilities at the pool. Poor bar facilities at the pool. Pool too deep for small children. No draught beer. Hotel bar lacking in atmosphere, piano covered. No courtesy coach to town for guests without cars. No local information in guest rooms, reception staff had poor knowledge of locality, places to visit and eat. Spa facilities unfriendly and expensive. A very different experience to lovely holidays in Italy over the years.

                        The view from our room was perfect

                        De food in the restaurant on the roof was a shame. Incredibly bad for a hotel of this class and in a foodmecca like Italy.
