Imperiale Palace Hotel
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 5 August 2014

The hotel is indeed charming and the staff highly professional (as you would expect for a five stars hotel), but what really makes the difference is the stunning view from the restaurant and the private beach...it is really worth trying.
Plus, the city center is walking distance, so the location is also very convenient

We have been to all the luxury hotels (4* and 5*) hotels in and around Santa Margherita and this one is the best by far. You are in a real Palace with high ceilings and marble floors and bathroom. The rooms are very classic but that is what we are looking for in this kind of Hotel.
The private beach / pool are very nice as well as the restaurants. Great service! Great location!
For once in Italy (as this is often not the case) worth the price for this type of Hotel.

Room Tip: If you want to be quiet do not take a room with sea view as the road is right in front.

Worth the expense to treat yourself. Make sure you get a high room with ocean view and small balcony, perfect for evening drinks. Beach area great, always plenty of sun beds and steps into water if needed. Breakfast just bliss. Great variety and location.

We stayed one night at the Imperiale on our travels along the Italian Riviera, and found it to be an ideal choice.
The hotel is in a wonderful Rococo style with beautiful well kept gardens that lead down to its pool and sea bathing area. It's only a short walk into town, which enabled us to leave our car in their free car park while visiting Santa Margherita in the evening.
Breakfast on the terrace is a wonderful experience, with good service and plenty of choice.
Quite expensive, but this is typical of the area in peak season.At least they offer free wi fi.

The lobby,restaurants and the teracces are very nice,elegant having the old italian charm
The hotel have a private beach across the road with nice gardens and beautiful view
Near to the beach it is also a restaurant where you can have a lunch
The service in the beach it is good and you can enjoy a nice cofee or a cocktail
The breakfast it is very good, a lot of choise and the teracce it is beautiful with nice view to the see and a lot of colorfull flowers
The hotel have a large parking
The rooms are nice butout room was quite dark inside and not so special
If you plan to visit Portofino dont stay there.Santa Margherita Ligure it is more nice,bigger with a lot of restaurants and shops
Very nice place to stay and to visit Riviera Italiana
We like very much the ice cream from Simonetti very creamy and so tastefull yummy!
A nice restaurant in the city it also Cambusa very good food not special decoration and Skypper more nice like decoration and located in the port
We ask for the late check in and they offer to us to stay till 4 pm without extracharge
Very nice staff

Everything about this hotel is first class. You will be amazed as you walk through the various rooms to the restaurant; grounds are beautifully manicured and staff/service attentive and thorough. We did not want to leave the pool and beach area; it was heavenly. Rooms on the front have an incredible view of the bay, especially at night from the balconies. It can be somewhat noisy from the traffic (suggest really light sleepers bring earplugs), but worth the trade off to open your doors and look onto the ocean every day. We loved everything and hope to go back again.

Used this as a base to explore Portofino and Cinque Terre. Outstanding service, beautiful old world charm. Nothing was too difficult for the extremely attentive and friendly staff. Felt very private yet close to centre of everything in tow. Definitely will stay here again. Food was exquisite, breakfast buffet of great variety. Sea views and pool area gorgeous!

Room Tip: View from sea view rooms with balcony outstanding
