“Great Atmousphere!!!”
Reviewed 8 July 2014 via mobile

I love this fancy hotel. It's great all around. The food, drinks, lounges, pools, rooms, ext. are all great. I love the walk down into the town of Portofino and the harbor with all the boats. And did you know that there is a castle in the town. And we were lucky because we saw them make the Ferrari commercial drive by us and we saw the cars they used. I give this place a 5-Star Rating By Far!!!

We have just arrived back from a 10 day holiday at The Splendido Hotel in Portofino. We had the most wonderful time at this hotel, we've travelled around the world, but this is the best place we've ever stayed in, the staff and service were first class, it is expensive, but you get what you pay for, well worth the money, so if you want superb service along with every luxury, book up now, you wont regret it.

We stayed for 2 nights in early July 2014 in a Garden View room. This largest Garden View room is actually comprised of two rooms - the bed area and a couple steps down into a living area. It's thoughtfully laid out and very comfortable and quiet at the end of a hallway.

The hotel setting is simply stunning. The terraces, the gardens, the pool, the history. We were well looked after from the moment we arrived. The staff is outstanding. Special mention to Antonio (who seems to be a symbol of the hotel, working as bartender, waiter and entertainer), a great pool team with Daniella and Corado, and the entire dinner staff at La Terrazza (so accommodating of personalizing dishes). Loved the amazing fresh seafood at the lunch buffet.

Also, recommend the hotel's sunset cruise with Roberto and team.

Room Tip: The largest Garden View room is on the first floor.

I go to this hotel every year. It is always fantastic. The hotel, the gorgeous flowers, the extremely competent staff. The food is wonderful. It's the best hotel in the world. But save your euros as it's very expensive.

Our four day visit to the Splendido was relaxing and happy. We met up with our daughter at the airport in Genoa and collected our car for the short drive to Portofino. What a tatty car from Avis with a mirror stuck on with tape. In spite of the awful car we were received as if we were driving a Bentley or some other prestige mark. We received a warm welcome from the staff who throughout our stay were faultless. Our bedroom was rather small for the price we were paying but the room and its bathroom were very well equipped. There was plenty of space for our luggage, there was lots of cupboard space and lots of plugs for all our internet requirements. The shower was in the bath which is not ideal, but at least we had a bath and the products on offer were really nice. there was real linen on the comfy bed which was a treat.

On the downside we thought the food was very disappointing and are glad we did not go for the half board option. After the first day when we lunched on the pool terrace and dined in the restaurant we preferred to eat elsewhere. The hotel provides an excellent free shuttle bus between itself and the village below. The weather was not wonderful but it really did not matter too much. We had a wonderful view of the large motor yachts and sailing yachts coming and going from our balcony.

I must mention the fun element of the hotel. The pianist and Antonio, the well-known head waiter
encourage people to come and join in singing and dancing. Its like an apres ski atmosphere and if you had mentioned this to me I would have cringed, but in fact it was such fun and we had a couple of really happy evenings. I would happily go back one day.

We were disappointed on arrival to be told that they had made an error with our booking and that the room which we had booked ( double with sea view) was not available for our first night (out of three). However, they were extremely apologetic and offered us a smaller room for the first night and a junior suite for the other two by way of recompense, which we accepted. The first room was a little small but beautiful and with the famous sea view. The next day the staff moved all our belongings (without us having to bother packing) to the suite which was fantastic! I take the view that anyone can make a mistake and that it is the way with which mistakes are dealt with which matters and we were not disappointed.
The hotel is beautiful and staff excellent. Breakfast is very good although the chef didn't seem to understand the concept of scrambled eggs which came as a (very good) omelette. We had dinner there once which was excellent although very expensive; 40 euros for 4 small slivers of cheese!
Well worth going for a special occasion; it was our thirtieth wedding anniversary; unforgettable

Room Tip: Sea view definitely
