Always good to come 'home'. Have been coming here every year for the last 12 years or so. It's so comforting to know it is family owned and hands on operated. Staff is incredible, rooms are clean, can't beat the view! Love it love it love it ;)

This is what you're paying for at this hotel. It's very clean, actually spotless, but the rooms are teeny tiny and the bathrooms are super small. the grounds are very nice but the lobby is dated.

Of all the places we stayed -- in London, Paris, Venice and Florence, none could compare with the divine Hotel Continental in Santa Marguarita Liguere. It was the highlight of our trip. This place is a dream, absolutely gorgeous, has a prime location, but it's the top-notch staff that made it so enjoyable and elegant, yet like a home away...

Like many others we enjoyed our stay here. We had a lovely room with ocean views, the private beach was excellent, and all the staff were very friendly and helpful. It is close to the station and only a short walk from town. We would definitely stay again.

Beautiful place with splendid, carefully designed garden leading to the sea. Wonderful, unspoiled view from the garden, terraces and balconies. Well preserved original, "colonial" style of the building with newly and comfortable arranged rooms. Hotel is run in elegant, traditional manner. Tasty, classical music accompanying evenings in lobby. We will return there.
