If we were to return to the Italian Riviera there wouldn't be any other place we would want to stay. Our experience of hostelries over the years has been mixed however the della Punta is the one of the best. Room 205 is a clean spacious en suite with a big comfortable bed, good shower and the fridge is surprisingly reasonably priced. We arrived in a heatwave that had the locals complaining so the air-conditioning was invaluable and the most effective ceiling fan I've ever come across.
But I've left the best to last. The service is beyond compare. We never found out the Signore name as he was so busy, but what a charming host, couldn't do enough and indeed all the staff were polite and helpful. The continental breakfast is lovely and fresh and the coffee or tea is brought by the Signore to the table.
If you want a better view of the sea try 204 (I think) or the 3rd floor. The hotel is a star shape so you either get views of the sea or the mountains behind. It seems to be the norm in Italy but no tea or coffee is available in the rooms.
I would also like to recommend an eatery, the Pizzeria Restaurant Laguna Blu. Good food and attentive service (although the grilled meats for two was disappointing) everything else looked and tasted delicious. Cheaper because it's just behind the waterfront, turn right out of the hotel under the underpass and it's not more than a 10 minute walk at 116 Via Vittorio Emmanuelle on the corner of Via Generale Biamonti.
