Very nice modern property in the perfect location!

Posted Feb 28, 2014
Pros: Everything!
Cons: The only improvement I can think of is the mattresses are hard but I think that is standard in Italy. Every place we stayed at the beds were hard.
Location: Location was perfect. You can rent bicycles and sightsee, Portofino and Comoglie are fun places to visit, sailing and scuba activities or beach it.
From the moment we arrived the staff at The Palace had a warm greeting and were extremely accommodating. A party of 5 we rented the two bedroom apartment which was picture perfect and provided all the comforts one requires. The décor was modern and tastefully done with a small kitchen which was fully equipped. Both bedrooms were roomy and comfortable and had flat screen televisions. Bathrooms were very clean which is a top priority for me. After traveling throughout Italy for thee past 8 days and staying at some pretty bad places this property was a great treat for all of us. The location is in walking distance to everything, the beach, train station which is a short 5-10 minute walk, bus stop 5 minutes and plenty of restaurants to choose from as well as shopping. The breakfast was also very good with a variety of cereals, pastries, meats, cheeses, juices, etc. I loved the fact that the hotel manager greeted everyone with a big warm smile. During my trip my bag was stolen with my passport in it, when I needed to print documents to apply for an emergency passport the manager was kind enough to let me use his office computer and printer. I loved this property and would highly recommend it! This is just an fyi if you book the apartment note that it is a block away from the hotel.

Great location - close to all shops and even a cinema. Excellent staff (very knowledgeable about the town, accommodating to specific requests, helpful with directions, and simply seemed happy to be there). Beautiful hotel with great steam room and sauna, and lovely modern breakfast room (limited in breakfast during slow season: pastries, Kellogg's cereal, toast - no oatmeal or wholesome natural foods). Great cappuccinos and awesome tea selection however. Interior design isn't as much of a 'European' vibe, as it is very modern - black & white and new age, so if you're looking for a more traditional Italian feeling hotel, this might not be for you (photos show it perfectly though - caters more towards those of who love newer, brighter, cleaner, more modern North American hotels.) Staff speaks english very well and many other dialects. Rooms kept very clean each day and linens always stocked in bathroom. Overall amazing hotel - extremely impressed with worth for price.

Our 3 night stay at the Santa Margherita Palace was most enjoyable. The room was modern, very comfortable and clean and we enjoyed the quiet location close to town. Staff were friendly and helpful.

Great place to stay!

Posted Sep 11, 2013
Pros: The location, the modern style, the included breakfast buffet, the friendliness of the staff.
Cons: The price seemed a little high to me; shower had no shelf for soap/shampoo; bath counters too narrow, no place to put things.
Location: Close to the train station. Easy walk to beach and marina. Lots of nearby outdoor cafes and shops.
We stayed here 4 nights. The best thing about it, for us, was its proximity to the train station because we arrived by train and had to haul our luggage....it was right down the street! We really enjoyed our visit here.

Good hotel close to the train station

Posted Sep 5, 2013
Pros: Clean, close to transportation and the beach!
Cons: Nothing except not having to go through Rapollo
Location: Check what we liked- Portafino is within walking/public transportation distance.
Enjoyed Santa Margerita, and the Palace was the crown jewel.
