This hotel is a great splurge for anyone who loves the Italian Rivera. It is an easy walk to great restaurants, parks and is right on the waterfront. The ferry to Portofino and the Cinque Terre is only about a twenty minute walk and the train station is about a half hour walk. There is parking if you need it and the rooftop pool and hot tub have a fabulous view of the Ligurian Sea and the town. The breakfast is also wonderful! We didn't really use the beach except to check it out, but it seemed very nice. The beach is stones and rocks, but the chair area is on a huge patio. There is a beachside restaurant too. My only fault is that the hotel hasn't quite caught up to the cellphone age since you needed a new log-in every day and sometimes had to try more than once. All in all, we really enjoyed this hotel and would definitely return.
We very much enjoyed our stay at this hotel. It was very conveniently situated for walking into Portofino. The staff were excellent and the food delicious. I would definitely recommend the restaurant.
My only 2 criticisms were:
no tea and coffee making facilities in the room.
very little comfortable sitting area/lounge to have a tea or coffee
as the weather was not terribly good for part of our stay.
Apart from this, we were happy.
This was a very nice hotel. The rooms were very upscale, beautiful, a fresh/crisp look, clean and well maintained. The staff was very accommodating and helpful. The breakfast was very nice! We really enjoyed the stay at this hotel and would highly recommend it. If possible, request the two rooms with a nice view on I think the west side, the rest of the rooms really don't have much of a view.

Modern, upscale, beautifully furnished. We were very, very comfortable here & hated to leave. Alesandra (sp?) at the front desk was warm & welcoming. All of our needs were met & exceeded. The hotel location is so convenient to Portofino...we only had to walk the beautiful road that curves along the mountain & the sea. Don't miss the Capo Nord, American Bar, restaurant that is only 1 km from the hotel. Also, the proprietor at the restaurant connected to the Bagno Fiore, the beach next to the hotel, was charming & accomodating each time we visited. Finally, be sure to visit Manuela at the Winterose Wine Shop in Portofino. Her knowledge of local vino is superb & the antipasti she serves with your wine is divine!

We travel the world and have never stayed in a better hotel than the Splendido
The ambiance is amazing,the staff manage to do everything you want,but not with
Servitude but wonderful smiling friendliness.
The intimacy of the bar at night,the music and dancing for those who wanted
To stay up was just great.
The pool area and all the garden flowers make you feel so so happy
And so lucky to be there.
For us it was our type of hotel a dream
