What we love
We love the location of this smaller sister hotel of Belmond Hotel Splendido. Whilst her sister stands proud atop of the hillside, Hotel Splendido Mare is right at the heart of the action of this lively, traditional fishing village on Italy's splendid Riviera.
Setting the scene
Splendido Mare is a boutique gem located in the heart of this traditional fishing village. Here at Splendido Mare, the exciting and entertainment on offer at the simply stunning harbour in Portofino is at your fingertips.
The room types at the Hotel Splendido Mare vary in size & style, with 3 different types of Double rooms, Junior suites and Suites. The double rooms differ based on their views - all are stylishly decorated in neutral pastel colour schemes with the views ranging from garden view to sea view with private balcony. All the suites enjoy private balconies and sea views over the harbour or the Piazzetta in Portifino. No luxury has been left to chance and all rooms and suites are well appointed with en-suite bathrooms and air conditioning.
The signature restaurant of the Hotel Splendido, La Terrazza is one of Italy's most spectacular dining venues in simply breath-taking settings with unparalleled views over Portofino Bay. Seafood, pasta and regional specialities are cooked to perfection by Chef Corrado Corti and his team. Open from April to October, their Pool Restaurant is a great option for rustic and refreshingly light pizzas, seafood specialities to keep hunger at bay during a lunchtime. All served alfresco under the warm Italian sunshine. And for an elegant start or end to an evening, the Cocktail Bar at Belmond Hotel Splendido with its black & white chequered marbled floors and hand-painted walls.
