“Average or Less”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 October 2013

The location is the major plus for this property as it is up high and offers a good view. The rooms are acceptable and are certainly not memorable. Breakfast was fine with the expected meats, cheeses, canned juice. The cooked to order scrambled eggs were nice. The shuttle service to and from the town is very nice.

Some reviewers think highly of Marta. I did not. I found her brusque. Worse, I found the little information that I sought from her to be very poor.

Example. How often do the trains operate. Answer - every 20 minutes. Wrong - try every 1+ hour.

Example. Suggesting dinner at a restaurant closed on that day.

Example. Saying that reservations at another restaurant were not needed. Wrong.

The place is quiet and has its upside but not enough for me to recommend or return.

After visiting all 5 towns, Monterosso is my favorite because of the beach! I am really glade we stayed at Il Parco because of the view, the breakfast and the location. There were 4 of us renting 2 rooms (our rooms were #1 and #2). The rooms were on the small side and had no direct view but they were still lovely. The B&B is a nice 10 minute walk up many stairs and up a hill but we enjoyed this walk every day so we could earn our dinner. However if you are not a walker, Marta, has arranged taxi service and shuttles into town.

Room Tip: Book early and request a room with a view!

Our time at Marta's B&B was everything I had hoped it would be. We had booked a 1st floor suite and along with a balcony and great view the room was super clean, lovely and spacious. Marta was a delight from initial contact to departure when she arranged a complimentary taxi to the station. The breakfasts were one of the best we had in Italy not what we are used to but tasty and enough choice. Yes there is a bit of a hike down to the town but its not that bad and there always taxis available. Pool area is great and the gardens were just coming in to full bloom in late June. Our room didn't have a kettle but when I mentioned that I'd like one it was provided straight away. The room service girls are amazing super efficient. If you want to escape the hustle I highly recommend this B&B

Room Tip: The 1st floor suites are very spacious with a lovely view

This B&B is absolutely magnificent, from the room, the gorgeous Marta and her dad who own the B&B, to the girls who clean the rooms, the breakfast and location truly a wonderful and relaxing time. First time overseas and this was our favorite place. You will not be disappointed

We stayed in Il Parco from 10-13 September, 2013. On arriving in Monterosso, a taxi provided by the B&B drove us to the heights where Il Parco is situated with a splendid view of the sea. WE were greeted by Signora Marta and immediate shown to our room, which had a terrace with that view and an en suite. In the mornings, our hostess provided an ample, generous hot breakfast in a diningroom overlooking the pool. During our outings, Marta or one of her staff drove us to or from the town center. We couldn't have asked for a better B&B or more caring staff!
Most highly recommended!

Room Tip: All rooms are well-placed for views of the hills and sea. All have an outside seating area.

This B & B has been extensively renovated and has the most amazing views and gardens. So relaxing up high overlooking the sea yet a short 8 min walk down to the main part of town. The hosts were so obliging and happy to shuttle us down and back as required. Great breakfasts and easy to visit the shops below and create your own gourmet feast for dinner if you like to. Thoroughly recommend this gem.

We had a nice weekend at Il Parco. A family run B&B with very friendly and happy people helping and answering all touristic questions of someone in his first time at Monterosso al Mare. Breakfast area has a fantastic view and very good for a B&B.
Hotel was full and we could not get a better room, but our reservation was at late time for the period.
Some points can be improved like a better accoustic treatment in the room, avoiding some noisy neighbor or your own bathroom noises. Also a new mattress was necessary, at least to our room.
Good price X benefit option, but do your reservation in advance to get a nice room with view!
