I liked the warm welcome and the location of the hotel a bit outside from Rapallo. You have easy access to Rapallo by 10 min walk. The room was decorated a bit old style but the bathroom was nice and of course the view from the balcony was splendid.
The staff in the reception was very friendly and helpful and provided us with information for all the questions we asked and called to check to see if things where open since we visited early March.
The SPA was a pure pleasure, a huge Turkish steam bath, showers with hydro massage, sauna and a nice relaxing room; I just missed the slippers for the SPA.
Another nice detail in the hotel is the coffee tea plus cake that was made available all afternoon.
The breakfast buffet was also a positive surprise. Normally in France and Italy you are happy to find some white bread and eventually a croissant but here you had egg and bacon, tomato and mozzarella, several types of bread, cereals, yogurt and fresh fruit salad. And of course excellent cappuccino.
The only bad point was the heating in the bathroom that made the entire room too hot. Despite several tries to turn the towel heater off it did not work so the room was too warm for my taste.
