    Excellent location. Nice view from the breakfast room. Handy private parking.

    Too expensive for the services offered. Lack of attention to details. Poor choice of food and drinks at the beach bar. No soundproof in the rooms so very noisy day and night in addition if your room is in front of the old and very noisy lift can be extremely unpleasant/annoying and ear plugs are necessary.

    Location was fabulous, staff were very helpful and friendly, lovely pool area. Stunning restaurant views.

    Slightly aggrieved about paying extra for sun loungers.

    Beautiful Castle, located on the high hill, however there are 2 lifts, taking you to the private beach or to the Marina. Hotel surrounded by amazing private park, there is awesome swimming pool there, with sea water and fishes just passing by your legs, sea view. If the water is calm you can swim from swimming pool directly to the Bay of Fairy Tales. And this breathtaking sunset you can observe from the terrace located on the 3rd floor...

    Wi-Fi did not work well, probably due to very thick walls. It is better to go to the breakfast a bit earlier otherwise you need to wait long before food is supplemented.

    Location is perfect, territory really huge, the private beach ("natural pool") is absolutely safe during stormy days ("pool" is almost separated from the sea but you can swim out to the open sea if the weather is good) and easy reachable by the lift (except wheelchairs and strollers: the path to the lift is quite rocky). The other lift connects the castle to the port and you also could use the car and ordinary road to get to. Staff is competent and very friendly without annoying excessive "hospitality accentuation". Breakfast is wide enough (remember that standard italian breakfast includes coffee and brioche) and you can anyway ask anything additional if you need (I checked it). After my weekend break I've got a feeling of the whole week passed.

    Yes, the single is really small. This is not "didn't like" but just the fact.(but it's comfortable and includes a stunning view as extra). I wish the pool was opened till the sunset (not till 19.00). Nothing more.

    This is by far one of the most beautiful hotels we've stayed in. The location and views are spectacular. The room is very comfortable and we had a spa bath which was lovely. The breakfast was excellent and overlooking the marina. There are lots of nice restaurants to choose from. I loved it and would definitely recommend a visit.

    We couldn't find the lift to the private beach even though we asked reception twice and looked twice. The wifi was poor.

    This hotel was a dream! Booked a surprise romantic wknd as b-day gift for my husband and we were both incredibly pleased! The view from our room (on the bay) was amazing - room gorgeous and comfortable - restaurant impressive - beach+cliffside relaxation everything could have wanted and more. The staff thruout was very nice and seemed to go out of their way to take care of us! All in all, this is the kind of easy luxury that a dream wknd on the coast should be - I will definitely be coming back to this hotel and and can recommend it whole-heartedly to anyone looking for a romantic getaway! Beautiful!

    Nothing negative whatsoever to say about this place!

    Setting, facilities, grounds were all top rate. Breakfast was remarkable. Stunning views from many locations within the park-like setting of the hotel grounds. Proximity to train station in town (~15 minute walk) made it easy for taking day trips to explore other towns along the coast (Cinque Terre, etc.) but then return to enjoy a lovely dinner in the evening.

    Did not want to leave. Can't wait to get back.

    Very friendly and professional staff, particularly on reception. Great location, lift made for easy access straight down to the harbour. Great, free parking. Would stay again if was in Sestri Levante.

    I was a bit disappointed in the breakfast. Given we were paying 200 euros per night I would have expected a bit better quality and variety. It wasn't bad by any stretch of the imagination (and the view was lovely) but it does seem to be quite common in Italy that the cheaper B&Bs do a much better breakfast than many of the fancier, more expensive hotels!

    I booked one night while passing on my way to Genova on business. This was simply a selection made at random. However the location was simply breathtaking. Staff were excellent and friendly. Room was clean comfortable and well served. Restaurant was again excellent with experienced and attentive staff. I would recommend to anyone.

    Absolutely nothing

    Fantastic 'in town but out of town' location. The park is a jewel and everything about the place and staff well above expectations.

    Internet could be a bit more convenient especially on restaurant.

    Location

    Felt very dated and musty. Staff, although very friendly, spoke very little English so it was hard to get help. I feel like the rooms were dark and dingy.

    Beautiful views, grounds, hiking trails, unique place to stay on this coastline and area. Lift to harbor below allowed quick access to fun bars and restaurants of sestri. Beautiful room and bathroom with nice furniture. Reception allowed us to leave our car there on the grounds for 2 nights while we toured cinque Terre by train as the hotel was not busy during week. Safe and secure parking. Will definitely return here for next visit to the area.

    Food at restaurant quite good and portions were large. We split salad,appetizer, main course of pasta with fresh seafood, a bottle of wine for under $100. he restaurant was away from hotel a bit overlooking the harbor. It has potential for amazing interiors and views. At night the inside lights are so bright, hard to see anything but lights. The interior design is a bit haphazard, with various levels. It has amazing potential however. Also, there is a pool table in reception room. I think a cozy seating area with a small pub/bar would be a nice addition to that large space in castle area. Also, it was a cool night and so quiet we slept with our windows open! We were awakened with these shrill sounds at 4:00 am! Had no idea what it was until next morning we saw peacocks. Then, realized, they must be mating! Funny memory!

    I loved the location of this hotel and the view over the city at night was gorgeous. It was a good choice for traveling south to Cinque Terre and then north to continue my trip around to France. The hotel staff were wonderful and the ambience of the hotel was ever present - inside and in the expansive gardens. The beach was a bonus and the position of the restaurant was fantastic, overlooking the bay, boats and city. I loved my room (a single) and all the art pieces and sculptures throughout the hotel. The markets in Sestri Levante were packed with delicious things to taste ... yum! Thank you for a great stay.

    All was great - thank you.

    the castle itself, breakfast, museum furniture

    no spirit of an ansient castle, except darkness and humidity in the room... it definitely should be more cozy and friendly. Restaurant service and food is poor

    A wonderful building, beautifully furnished & the room was well appointed. The bathroom was very large and towels were replaced twice a day.

    The private beach was univiting & not very accessible & we would certainly not have been prepared to pay to use it. The roof terrace on our floor needed redecorating & no effort had been made to enhance what could have been a very attractive area where even a few plants would make a huge difference. Breakfast was extremely disappointing: considering this is supposed to be a luxury hotel, we had to serve ourselves tea & coffees from a vending machine. In a country with an abundance of fresh fruits, tinned peaches & pineapple are unacceptable. We ate in the restaurant only once & found the food to be over salted & over priced. The waiters were supercilious & not very attentive yet fawned over a table of favoured Italian guests.

    Good (expensive) breakfast. Nice rooms, very clean. Great parking.

    Pool is expensive and not too exciting. Beach is a joke.
