Hotel Ancora Riviera
Ranked #4 of 16 Hotels in Lavagna
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 17 April 2014

We, the group of 16 people, spent three nights 12-16 April 2014 at the Hotel Ancora Rivera. Without exception, my colleagues and I concluded that we have the best and memorable experiences during our stayed at the Hotel. The hotel is owned and operated by mother Carmen and her two daughters, Sabrina and Pierangela. From the time we arrived at the hotel until our departure - we were serviced with a big smile, friendly and fully accommodated with our needs. I do not remember neither Carmen, Sabrina nor Pierangela said "no" to our request. Their answers had always been "we will do the best" and "they did". Staff were very helpful and friendly. The rooms were incredible clean, modern, well designed with attention to details and spacious. Breakfast were excellent and many of the cakes were home made. We had dinners at the hotel, there were also excellence. The location for us were perfect since we were touring around "Cinque Terre". All and all, Hotel Ancora Riviera was a PERFECT place for us and you should experience the hospitality of Carmen, Sabrina, Pierangela and their staff at least once in your life. Enjoy..........

We spend 2 weeks at the Hotel Ancora Riviera in July and this newly renovated hotel, offers spacious, clean and cosy rooms.

Service is high and the staff is nice and friendly and will really "go the extra mile" to make your holidays.

The hotel is close to the beach (200 m.), but not least the free acces to the Marina Spa Club (just next to the hotel) is a valuable asset.

Especially the rooms facing the Marina have a stunning view over the Marina and the sea.

Lavagna is a "non touristed" city offering a broad variaty of reasonable priced restaurants and bars in walking distance from the hotel.

Room Tip: Go with a room with the view over the Marina.

Upon arrival, we were greeted with smiles and Maria who spoke different languages. For a small hotel that was owned and operated by mother Carmen and her two daughters, Sabrena and Pierangela, it has been thoughtfully put together, and the rooms were clean and modern. The breakfast was always full, with a lot of variations (fruit, pastries, cooked food) and Carmen always had time to make one of our boys hot chocolate every morning. We felt like part of their family. They recommended great restaurants in Chivari and Blackboard. My friends son asked asked if they could bring his mother breakfast in bed for her birthday mothers and they accommodated.

We were specifically looking for a hotel that was close to the beach and had a pool and we were initially concerned that there are no images of what the spa looked. We were very surprised. The Spa was in the middle of the Marina, very modern with gym, sauna, bar area and plenty of sun lounging space around the pool. Aqua aerobics also enticed our 14 years. Alexandro and his staff looked after all the needs and also helped organize a drink surprise for my friends birthday on the last evening, nothing seemed too much trouble. The beach is a 5 minute walk through the Marina and so is town centre of Lavagna which is very pretty.

Almost want to keep it a secret! Would definitely go back again.

Room Tip: Ask for a Superior Room with SeaView

We (couple + son) stayed 7 days in this hotel and all agree that it is perfect because of its location, cleanliness and the very friendly and helpful staff ... and not to forget the excellent breakfast with a variety of homemade cakes. Of course Lavagna has not the same touristic attractions as neighboring towns like Santa Margherita or Sestri Levante. However, we found it very Italian and unspoiled. The hotel itself is located a 5 min walk from the center with a few very nice restaurants and the railway station.

Previous reviews mention the slow internet connection. It is true that in our room I was not able to connect to the intranet of my company and to a few other locations outside Italy. However, you can get a high quality connection in the hotel lobby. To my astonishment, we were able to use skype, facebook and even to watch videos with the WiFi connection in our room.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the harbor are quieter.
