The beach was a serene and pristine oasis, offering a peaceful escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. It was a pleasant surprise to find that it wasn't overcrowded, which allowed us to fully unwind without any distractions. Although the cafe's menu was somewhat limited, the dishes we tried were satisfactory.

During our week-long stay at the Cinque Terre coast, we were disappointed with the service we received. Despite paying for beach lounges, we were informed that only locals were allowed to occupy the front row. It would have been helpful to know this beforehand. We offered to move to a different spot, but our request was denied. Frustrated, we asked for a refund and decided to enjoy the beach without the lounges. We recommend exploring other beaches or trying to blend in as locals to avoid similar experiences.

This beach establishment boasts a prime location in close proximity to the charming village, making it a convenient choice for visitors. While the sunbeds are spaced closely together, this is to be expected given the relatively compact size of Portovenere's beaches. One major perk of choosing this establishment is the easy access to restaurant services, ensuring that you won't have to venture far for a delicious meal. Additionally, the presence of a small platform in the sea is a hit with children and makes swimming even more enjoyable.

The staff at the beach resort were incredibly welcoming and accommodating. They went above and beyond to ensure that our stay was comfortable and enjoyable. The location is simply breathtaking, with pristine white sand and crystal-clear waters. We were blown away by the delicious cuisine on offer, which was expertly prepared and presented. The staff were always on hand to answer any questions we had and made us feel like valued guests throughout our stay. Overall, we had a fantastic time at the beach and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a relaxing and luxurious getaway.
