We stayed at the Porto Roca last summer, and were nothing but impressed with it. It is located in the best part of the Cinque Terre, overlooking the sea at the edge of Monterosso, about 10 minute walk from the station. All the rooms have sea view, and even the smallest ones have a little balcony. They have a really good restaurant, where we ended up spending every meal because we traveled with our 3-year old daughter. After we have put her to bed, we spent the evening on the terrace, with a baby monitor, having an after dinner drink and enjoying the cool sea breezes. The hotel has a few reserved places at the local private beach, so if you go there early enough, you can snatch a few chairs, and have a great late afternoon swim in the clear blue waters. Porto Roca is also a good place to explore the region, but once you set up you base there, you should take the train everywhere--it takes half an hour on really windy roads to get back on the road, and the parking lot is on the other end of the village. The train is fast, gets you from one end to the other in less than 20 minutes, so it was perfect. I would highly recommend it, despite the hefty price. Although you need to understand that there are not that many options for good hotels in that area!
