We met our family from London in Santa Margherita for 4 nights. With no children on this trip, it was important to have a good location and comfortable quarters.
The Santa Margherita Palace was perfect. They accommodate parking. There is a pleasant outdoor sitting area with couches to meet. There is another location inside the lobby to meet before you leave for the day.
The staff is very professional and helpful. There is a very ample breakfast selection and bar. The room that we had (304) was great with lots of room and a small table with chairs. There were sufficient storage for clothes. There is a mini-bar with good choices.
The main bathroom is a good size. The only drawback was that the shower required contortions for a tall, big American. If the door open out instead of in, it would have been easier.
Hotel is located just two blocks from the water and a short walk to banks, boats to Portofino and beyond to other sites. The nearby Hotel Helios has a private deck with pool and sea swimming plus chairs/chaise for $25 Euros. There is a public beach next to it.
Recommendations for restaurant: Taverna del Marinaio - near the waterfront: $$$

VERY GOOD LOCATION NOT FAR TO WALK TO HARBOUR. LOVELY BREAKFAST EACH MORNING PLENTY TO CHOICE FROM. ALL THE STAFF VERY HELPFUL NOTHING TO MUCH TROUBLE. NICE TO HAVE A PRIVATE AREA TO SIT AND RELAX IN THE SUN, JUST ACROSS THE ROAD FROM THE HOTEL.
WOULD RECOMMEND THIS HOTEL. THANK YOU FOR A VERY PLEASANT STAY.
Nice place to visit Portofino and S. Fruttuoso . The beach is front is not so nice, but a few km away the coast becomes gorgeous. You will be at walking distance from S. Margherita (go to the Miami to taste a Spritz and watch people). There is a very good restaurant in the hotel, with excellent staff. Rooms are beautiful and the building has all the character of the old times.
"Four perfect nights at a perfect place for our nee"
Great location in Santa Margherita. Close enough to walk to everything but away from the hustle and bustle of some busier locations. Terrific and helpful staff--full ,of information and suggestions and info on bus, train, boat schedules.
I stayed here for 2 nights on 29th September with my friend.
We had no difficulty finding the hotel just a 5min walk from the station, the hotel location was excellent being right on the sea-front.
The hotel staff were really friendly and helpful on our arrival, we paid extra for a sea view and it was well worth it the views were outstanding, breakfast was very nice with a good selection.
They were plenty of restaurant's near by.
If I was to say anything negative about this hotel I would say that the hotel is a little dated and could do with some renovation, apart from that I really enjoyed my stay there, and would definitely recommend it.

"Really nice hotel, close to the port & the beach"
It was not our first time in the area but first time in this hotel: staff is really kind and helpful. I tried the " laundry" service and clothes came just perfect, they even made my white tee shirts, whiter. The beds are good quality and the room was extremely well cleaned: the lady came around 3 times a day to check and change towels.The situation is great if you have a boat or if you rent one in the harbor as it is just one minute walking to the beach and the view is really nice. When it comes to the beauty center, I can only advise it: the lady is nice, soft and makes a great job: really professional. Breakfast is just perfect with food for all taste.
