We liked best the direct location at the seafront and the close walking distance to the town center with its many eateries and little boutiques. The breakfast arrangements were shocking. There was absolutely nothing remotely appetizing, wholesome or healthy on offer. No assortment of fresh breads, an array of useless dry biscuits, cakes and sweets in stead and worst of all, and for us uncomprehensible, no fresh fruit, this time of year, in Italy? Shocking! Although the season is actually coming to an end the services and facilities must be upheld regardless, not gradually, but clearly visible, cut back, i.e.Bar and lobby unattended with no newspapers, gardens unattended with maintenance utensils and rubbish lying about, and furniture little by little being stored away.
Great location (on beach, short walk to many great dinner locations), nice included breakfast, rooms were nice, staff was friendly, and of course the general beauty of Alassio Not really. Some might be surprised by the $50/day for a spot on the beach, but compared to the public beach down the street (way overcrowded) or to other hotels (much more jam packed), we thought the price was reasonable.
extremely friendly and helpful in a beautiful location loved everything
Kind personal at the reception, great view from the room, really close to the beach (location) and the wonderful weather ;-) Breakfast
Very nice hotel staff, nice location, good brackfast Nothing
Good room if a little small - excellent view of sea/private beach. Good facilities - lovely dining room/breakfast terrace and private beach facilities. Good food - would have liked the option to book half board. Too far from centre of Diano Marina - long walk on a busy road to get into the town centre.
The hotel was well positioned next to the beach and just far enough out of town to be quiet. The staff were very helpful and the room we had was just right. Breakfast was very good and the pool area nice and relaxing. The only real gripe is that when staying in a 4 star hotel and paying a fairly high price you do not expect to have to pay extra for sunbeds and beach towels on the hotels own private beach. At €3.50 for a towel and €19.00 for a sunbed per day this can soon add up. A beach chair and parasol is included in the hotel rate and the sunbeds around the pool are free.
Private car park, right next to the beach, reasonable access Hotel is at the sad end of Diano Marina. Our deluxe room with ful sea view was very small
The seaview from our bedroom (we booked a superior with full seaview) was superb. The hotel had a good swimming pool and garden beside the pool. The breakfast was very nice and there was a good choice of quality products. The a la carte restaurant was good. The bedrooms themselves were disappointing. Our superior room was very small and we spent one night in Suite 504 which had a very very limited seaview over the rooftops! Also you have to pay €3.50 per person per day if you wish to hire towels for around the pool/beach.
Very nice Hotel with excellent service
the pool area really set this hotel apart from others on the beach. Hotel was ok, expected a little more but was comfortable. Breakfast provided in cost of room was excellent. We arrived at 7pm and the pool and beach area was closed. We expected to be able to have a quick swim after travelling all day so that was disappointing. Also, this hotel is not inexpensive, but they still charge 3.5 euro per pool towel/day/person which I think is not right if you're a guest, as well they charge to lay on a chair on the beach. Felt like we were always being asked for additional money.
private beach facility, buffet breakfast, pool area, balcony
The breakfast Room too small
Great staff! Very friendly & nice people! Great location! Hotel parking included!
Good location overpriced, air conditioning in room is not turned on until June
New hotel, excellent value for money. Staff were helpful but not very cheerful. Room quite small for a 4 star hotel. Fair walk into town and to restaurants.
Convenient. Secure parking. Helpfull, friendly staff. Excellant breakfast. Quiet, peacefull (inside).
Close to bars and restaurants. Close to station but not too close to be noisy No direct view of sea or beach. balcony views of the back streets of the town, noisy road outside hotel. Pigeons were allowed to run around the indoor breakfast area fowling floors.
the hotel is in a great position. It is modern, clean and comfortable. The staff were polite and helpful. Very good. nothing
very helpful personel,wonderful place,private beach and perfect restaurant!!!!realy lovely hotel:))))
We liked all the thing listed above, also the meals were something to look forward to,also the location.
We liked the international flavor, the polite helpfulness of the staff, the good food.We liked it all and intend to go there as soon as they open after their well earned holidays in January. We cannot think of anything we did not like during our 3 day stay.
The location and the meals were good They forgot to return our passports upon checking out, and it took us 5 days of pleading (and then threatening) to get them in the mail
It was good location and good hospitality.
One of the best hotels in the area. Perfect location.
Overall new refurbished structure with several facilities and free wifi. Nice room decorations. Breakfast: a lot of variety of food offered but overall poor quality.Poor soundproofing of the room. No sea view.
I liked how nice the rooms was.Staff was friendly and the service was good. The matress could have been a little softer. Anything else great.
Owners are kind and the place is very well mantained and nice and peaceful. Heater not adequate during the night, it will be probably better from April onward
We spend here only one night on our way to France. Everything was fair. No wireless internet
Nice outside area by the pool Bad breakfast and poor service from the staff. Extrimely small showerbox, just for children and skinny people. Not wifi internet
Swimming pool, bar for drinks and coffee at reasonable prices. Bikes for rent Breakfast was poor. Old or not tasty bread (hard to come by in Italy), lousy coffee, hardly any choice in jams, or meat, or cheese. We can't believe it is because of the budget, while it is so easy to get a decent breakfast using local alternatives. We were even willing to pay for it. Now we've taken breakfast a few times in town. Furthermore was the hotel visited by a group of elderly English people. All very nice and lovely. But their evening programm with quizes and bingo was scaring the other non-English guests away from the hotelbar. The diner menu was not attractive. We didn't eat once in the hotel, although we would have liked to. The other thing we didn't like that there wasn't enough information available for sseing things locally and in the surrounding area.
Swimming and position breakfast poor
Good for summer but we whent on winter First of all the double bed was a matrimonial bed placed toghether. It was very poor the fact that the personal turned of the heat at night after 12. The shower was very small and it flooded everithing even the room. A disaster for a 3 star hotel
Hotel was perfectly nice but we were on the third floor with no hot water evening or morning.This obviously affected how we felt about our stay in this this very charming hotel. We had a good-sized balcony overlooking the pool area.
the bed was uncomfortable
Nice small cosy hotel with swimming pool.
The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Apparently a nice family business. Room well appointed, well serviced and good air con. Beach clean and well maintained and the swimming pool was large, clean and well appointed. Hotel close to restaurants and a wide variety of shops. A pleasant little community
the locaton is not too bad because it is right on the beach and in the center of the villate....except if you have a road side room. These are very noisy! Very noisy road side rooms, old fashend hotel, unfriendly staff. They even offerd us a discount for paying in cash! We left the hotel at midnight, because we could not sleep and they were not able to give us a quiet room.
stayed 2 nights, pleasant staff a lovely hotel by the sea
Excellent situation, good room, pleasant balcony overlooking the sea, quiet and interesting village.
The view and location to town. Outdoor parking not gated
Relaxing A little regimented regarding the poolside and sunbathing facilities
We got a very warm welcome on arrival . gracious hostess.A lot of the guests were quite elderely and seem to return annually.maybe not suited to younger travellers It was very comfortable hotel and very clean The breakfast was poor ,I expected plenty of fresf fruit only to get tin peaches and apples. The hot breakfast of eggs and bacon was in limited amounts.and you were waiting for them to be replaced .
Staff and facilities for the beach and pool. Close to town but not in town
A very good position, private beach available for customers, room very big and comfortable Breakfast very poor, "sea view" description a bit tricky in the description of the rooms because it can be that a piece of sea "can be viewed" from your room if you really want to..
amicability of the personnel car parking and WiFi availability
Idealy located for the beach and the city center. Ladies on the front desk are smily and try to be helpful. Rooms' furniture is basic and old! Hotel cannot claim it is fully refurbished. The person in charge of the beach is not professional or friendly at all. Guests are not guarranteed a good spot on the beach. Other beaches in the surrounding are more hospitable. Breakfast is poor and has no diversity and serving staff are not friendly.
Location only High price, poor facilities, poor breakfast and dinner, not comfortable rooms, expensive parking
position near the beach,clean,nice terace in front of the hotel,availability of parking places in the garage room very small and noisy,ancient and small TV set,poor breakfast for a four star hotel;we were not informed at arrival that the hotel has its own beach.
very nice location with sea view complicated seating arrangement at breakfast. Breakfast itself was modest.
Quiet hotel. beachside property. Hard beds, Need new bedsheets and soft bathroom towels,
Located right on the promenade at the relatively quiet end of the beautiful sandy beach not far from one of the few free beach access points. The ceiling fan was effective, but noisy.
friendly staff breakfast was really poor, bathroom extremely small
i liked the professionalisme and helpful staff. i liked the beautiful scene and sourroundings as well as the facilities in my room. everything was provided for me to have a very enjoyable stay. i will go back there and will recommend Diano Sportings Appartment to everybody. It was fantastic. Thank you everything was perfect
Very nice comfortable appartments with air conditioning set in a large well maintained mediterraen style garden. Friendly and helpful staff. 2 good sized and well maintained swimming pools was a hit with the children and there are several shady lounging areas. 15 minute walk to the main sea promenade and town and very nice clean sandy beaches with lifeguards. Good restaurants in town and can comfortably make day trips to Genova or San Remo, which are on the very scenic coastal road. Small things - fridge door a bit broken and freezer did not work well. TV was too small to watch and was located in a corner with a very short cable - so could not be moved. A difficult place to find first time - so get the local town map from the tourist office first.
I liked the location of the hotel. Even though it was not close to the sea, it was located in a very quite disctrict of Diano Marino. And what is more - we had a beutiful view from our terrace. The walls and doors seem to be not very thick, we could hear everything which was happening at our neighbours' rooms.
Big terrases, swimming pool, silence, supermarket nearby No room cleaning during our 10 days stay
A pleasant stay:very good supermarket near; helpful staff.specialist delicatessen nearby;station 10 mins. walk.good shopping 10-15 mins walk . secure parking.Good cooking facilities. bed cover,but no blankets. marble flooring a little noisy.
