10/10 Exceptional

Perfect location, great pool, lovely facility
Hotel does a great job of pampering guests. From 1st greeting, to spa staff to housekeeping to waitstaff everyone was welcoming and helpful. Common rooms are old school elegant. Beds are excellent, bedding very good, thick towels, nice robes, slipper all add to a feeling of being well cared for. Lovely infiniti pool: perfect swimming temperature & views are stunning up & down the coast. Great showers in the changing rooms, lockers made available. In fact the sight of that pool made us change over from another hotel to this one! Breakfast buffet was excellent: really good quality salmon, cheeses, excellent mini croissants, fresh fruit, made to order cappuccinos were my faves but the buffet has a broad range. We really loved the location: our room had a beautiful view over Raballo's pretty harbor and it's at most a 10 minute walk to to the cafes, restaurants, bars in the historic district. Walk the other way, less than 10 to San Michele de Pagano or 25 to Santa Margherita Ligure. If you want to walk, enjoy lunch but maybe not walk back? There is a bus stop across from the hotel so it's always an option. Only negatives for us: (1) shower water pressure was fine but for the tub wasn't good, it took a long time for the hot water to come on. (2) in winter only the car park entrance is open, great for arrivals but to hike the coastal paths, getting down to the main road or back up you must use a steep long staircase or walk a winding drive that doesn't feel very safe.

Everything about the property was great except that dinner is not available until 7:30 pm and the walk to the center of the waterfront requires an unsafe traverse across a street with a blind curve and speeding cars and motorbikes. The sidewalk on the hotel side of the street ends before you reach a safe crossing. The hotel also does not have an ATM.

Maybe you should book elsewhere
The hotel is very old and the furniture is outdated. The basic necessities are not offered like an iron ( for supposed safety reason versus trying to charge for the service), coffee machine and beach/restaurant service by the sea.
