Just returned from a short break with friends. The hotel is just perfect. It has a great location right by the sea; the view from the room was beautiful. Breakfast on the terrace is lovely. There is a great selection of pastries, yoghurts, cereals, breads, fruit and more every day. All the staff are lovely, so helpful, welcoming and friendly....

Decent hotel with lift and nice rooms - we had the better room with balcony and sea view and it was good. Aircon was effective. Breakfast was extensive and tasty. Hot drinks available from the kitchen at any time.

A lovely hotel with gorgeous views over the sea to Mount Portofino - breakfast on the terrace is delicious and so beautiful sitting there in the morning sunshine. The bed is comfortable and the rooms are quiet - apart from the waves and the sound of the sea ;) A great location too - Recco isn't as touristy as other...

We stopped by this hotel for one night as part of our road trip around Italy. We were there now in April, which isn't really beach season. However, it was wonderful to have the sea view rooms.

A great hotel near the beach in Recco and near restaurants and shops. Our room had also a nice balcony with a view to the beach. The breakfast included all needed in a big buffet. The staff was very friendly and it was possible to park free next to the hotel. All this to a very good price.
