    The hotel is on the seafront where the new port facilities are being built. It will be much nicer when the work is finished. The fish restaurants close by overlooking the beach are excellent . The hotel itself is fine, with ample breakfast.

    There were a few surprises for me: the room for the price I have paid was very small. It had a 1 double bed and 1 single bed, and with this set up i had trouble putting both of my travel suitcases cases on the floor to unpack. There were no tea pot, cups, cutlery, iron and ironing board, which is regular for all the hotels. Instead, every time I wanted some tea or coffee I hand to go to the lobby to ask hotel staff to make me one. Surprise, upon leaving the hotel I was charged for the teas I had during my 7 days stay. Don't count on watching the TV, it's tiny (I thinnk 19 -20 inch) and i have not found a way to find non Italian channels. Other than that, everything was ok.

    Even though staff speaks very very poor English, they try their best to understand and explain everything very well. The hotel itself is just above OK. It was renovated a few years ago, so the interior is fresh and nice, but with a few minor drawbacks here and there.

    Noisy due to construction in front of the hotel. Once that's complete will be a great place to stay. Hotel does not have a designated beach. You may rent chairs from the beach club right in front of the hotel.

    Nice customer service at the hotel. Facility bit outdated but well maintained. Wonderful restaurant next door, we all fell in love with food and went back next day.

    Information about a construction of Marine in front of the hotel was hiden. We got a "construction view" instead of promised Sea view with a loud noise of buldozers and escavators from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m.

    Piero served excelently for the breakfests. His capuccino was delicious :-)

    Ventimiglia was very convenient for visiting Monaco & Nice which is why we chose it. It has a very good authentic fish and vegetable market which is open all the time. Also there is a market close to this hotel on a Friday (clothing, bags etc). The town in general is a bit dowdy and extremely busy with traffic. Good food next door to this hotel Pasta & Basta, must reserve a table as its very busy. Just a small note to say that Lidl's in Ventigmiglia had a lovely Chianti for EU2.19, who can complain at that.

    The hotel was very clean, had a lift and the parking was very good (out the front of the hotel). This hotel is on the seafront but a marina being built across the road, may put some people off. We had a balcony (overlooking the marina). The marina will only improve the view once finished. Perhaps another 12 months.

    Payment was pre-authorised 3 weeks in advance to our stay. I specifically booked with the option to pay at the hotel and with free cancellation up to 24 hours, because I had back surgery lately and I was not sure I could make it. When I asked the lady at reception why they offer the facility of pay on the stay and pre-authorised the card, she said that they always pre-authorise card much more in advance because most of people have not money on the credit card. This was almost insulting.

    We loved the location, and room as we had sea view and the bed was very comfortable.

    It's a unique experience. No English so the stay felt very authentic. The rooms are not fancy but clean and comfortable. Very mom & pop and it's a family run business. No sandy beaches it's all rocky. We were the only English speaking guests and tourists in the area during late September. We would definitely return.

    Didn't like the location - but this was mainly due to the construction work outside. Is it construction or just hiding the pebbly beach, crane and excavators? Shame as it is not helping this hotel. Taxi from the station cost 10euros which seemed a bit excessive compared to other taxi journeys in Italy -but felt uneasy walking to the main part of the town.

    Room was lovely and clean. Great breakfast and very friendly and helpful staff.

    They are building a new marina in front of the hotel which will be fabulous when finished . It wasn't noisy at all when I was there but it's something that detracts from the view.

    It is handily placed for the old town and the new part over the pedestrian bridge. Friendly staff. I would have stayed another night but the police were arriving the following day for the migrant crisis there.

    Very clean and modern. Excellent staff. At this writing, this hotel and Ventimiglia is family- and pet-centric with only a hint of foreign tourism. No buses, no ships, no trains, no tours. Come, relax and enjoy real Italian hospitality. The town itself is a little shabbier than my lovely wife would like but the quiet charm more than compensates for the sparse paint. The Sole Mare hotel is the perfect home base to discover the area.
