Select Italy comprises a large range of accommodation, from simple residences to luxury hotels. The official ratings are based on certain facilities or services being available and they do not take into account the size of the bedrooms or public rooms, nor the preferred décor of the owner, which may be at odds with your taste. Hotels in the same category, even in the same resort, can vary considerably in character, ambience, service and facilities and may not offer the same staffing levels and facilities, or be as well maintained. it must be bourne in mind that cost is a good indication of standards, particulary when comparing hotels in the same star rating.
As well as the hotel's official star rating, we have also given our own special rating, based on our personal opinion. This rating should be taken into consideration, especially when comparing hotels of the same official star rating. By all means browse our website to get an idea of what we offer.

An additional 17 rooms and Suites, most with a balcony or terrace, are found at the Belmond Hotel Splendido Mare, right in the heart of Portofino facing onto the fabled Piazzetta and the harbor. A complimentary shuttle service connects the two hotels - a three-minute ride.

Some of them have views facing the sea and harbor while others enjoy a village view from their windows, balconies or terraces.

Particularly spacious are the double rooms with balcony, some of which are decorated with magical fresco paintings by local artists of scenes from around Portofino. Several of the Deluxe Junior Suites have two private terraces equipped with sun-beds, table and chairs.
La Terrazza Restaurant offers gourmet dining on an open-air terrace with breathtaking views over Portofino bay and the Tigullian gulf.
