Good Hotel Guide Review
‘We cannot think of a nicer, better-run seaside hotel,’ says a devotee of this large hotel, built on the site of a villa once owned by the aristocratic Dogi family. ‘Well run, though easy-going’ and ‘mildly luxurious’, it stands above the sea in spacious grounds with pine trees and exotic plants, at the southern end of this fishing village on the Ligurian coast south of Genoa. The views are ‘enchanting’. It has an ‘excellent’ sea-water pool, spacious lounges and terrace, and service is ‘both efficient and very friendly’. ‘We had a magical week,’ says a report. ‘Our wonderfully large, well-appointed bedroom had beautiful marble bathroom, two large windows and balcony facing excellent pool and bar area.’ Other rooms face the garden. ‘The beach is pebbly, but bathing in the clean sea is marvellous.’ ‘Lots of choice for breakfast’ and the half-board dinners are ‘good if unexciting’, with limited choice. ‘We preferred La Playa, open to non-residents.’ There could be noise from nearby trains, but they make travelling up and down Liguria easy. Conferences are held off-season. Good walks in the surrounding hills. Note that guests have to pay to reserve sun loungers (€15).
