“Simple Hotel, Beautiful Surroundings”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 August 2011

Let's get one thing straight. It's not a luxury hotel, by any means. What it is, is a basic hotel, that is slightly overpriced for what it is (even by local standards). The customer service is OK - nothing spectacular, but nothing terrible either. Where the hotel shines is its sunning platforms and private beach. Perfect for sun worshippers looking to chill out. Breakfast was pretty good and the rooms were clean.

We felt slightly duped by the advertising of our room as a deluxe double unit. What we received was a tiny, single room, with a queen bed and a bunk bed. My wife and I slept on the bunks. Not a huge deal, but still kind of crappy given that this place cost us 300USD per night.

I would return if I was able to get a deal on the hotel. Otherwise a little steep for what it is.

All that aside, we enjoyed our stay.

We originally only planned on one night, but stayed for two. The location is superb and the hotel was a great boutique hotel experience. Staff was helpful, beach bar and beach are gorgeous, and the rooms are simple and clean. We loved it and would highly recommend to anyone looking for a base to explore the area. Easy to reach Cinque Terre, as we did on our second day.

This hotel is a little paradise! We are coming to this place for several years and will be doing so in future. :-)
All is perfect (sea view, privat beach, breakfast, beach bar, rooms...)! Staff is very friendly and helpful! Beach bar has been completely renovated, but we also have loved it before. We love the flair of this house!

We arrived at Il Nido after a week in Florence in need of some serious R & R. The Hotel is in a wonderful spot, perched on the edge of the bay. We were made immediately welcome by the staff who I must say were extremely helpful. We had asked in advance if they could book a restaurant for our first night and they came up trumps. A table overlooking the bay at Il Senatore! Just a short walk from the Hotel but one which we would have never found ourselves. They were also extremely helpful with local information, bus tickets, train timetables etc. The room was a little on the small side and our only quibble was the lack of storage/hanging space, but we did have two weeks luggage and were staying for a week which I don't think is the norm. Having said that the balcony was fantastic - big enough for a table and two chairs and even a couple of deckchairs and the view was out of this world. I would definitely advise anyone thinking of staying at Il Nido to pay the extra and book one of the five rooms with a balcony overlooking the sea. The beach was again small but adequate and the terraces with sunbeds excellent. Warning! there are a lot of steps down to the beach. Breakfast was very good with plenty of choice and the lunch bar on one of the terraces overlooking the sea was good and not overpriced. Plenty of reasonably priced restaurants within walking distance, the beautiful village of Tellaro only 15 mins walk away and a bus stop outside the hotel where you can catch a bus to Lerici which only takes 15 mins. What more could you want? This Hotel is a real find and the perfect base for exploring this part of the Riviera. We hope to come again.

Bit pricey at 140 euros and 2.50 euros for 30 minutes of Internet. Reception staff couldn't advise if there was signal in the rooms. Best to arrive in daytime. We arrived late and the parking was up the drive of the 2nd building across the road while we were in the main building below the road. Too much trouble to get the bags down so we left them in the car. Staff friendly and great breakfast from a dining room with panoramic views. The private beach is reached by steep stairs with a few sun beds on each of about 6 levels going down. Very Ligurian coast!
