Staying in this amazing resort feels like being transported back in time to holidaying on the Italian Riviera in the 1920s. The great thing is that it also feels authentic. Everything is done extremely well from the decor to the music. The poolside area is almost impossible to leave and the only better view is from the nearby bar and...

With the most breathtaking views, and great spaces to make the most of them, Vis a Vis hotel offered fantastic service with friendly and corteous staff. The rooms were basic, clean but had good Frette linen. Although we had a family room, the bathtub was a little tight, it was adequate and there was lovely bath/shower products. The common areas...

Booked fairly last minute for a couple of days away. Wish we had booked for longer. The location, service and food were fantastic and the views of Sestri were stunning. We live in Italy and know Sestri fairly well having been there a number of times - just wish we had found Vis a Vis sooner.

The general impression is ok. We have stayed in the hotel with my family. We have booked the last available room, so there was no much of a choice anyway since it was just right in the middle of holiday season. I would say that the location is great, hotel facilities are ok, the staff is friendly and always welcome...

We really enjoyed our stay here. Probably the highest location in town, with stunning 360 degree views from the top floor dining and pool area.

My husband and I were just recently guests at Hotel Vis a Vis in Sestri Levante. We both loved everything about this hotel. We had a double room with seaside view.
