My daughter and I had such a lovely time at Hotel Vis a Vis. The staff couldn't have been friendlier, the hotel was in a great location with amazing views and the lift to ground level was so handy. We loved the beach club and the surrounding area. Its just a shame we only had 3 days to stay.

The hotel offers fantastic view of Sestri Levante. Bar, restaurant and pool facilities all good. We had issues with WiFi, shower door and size of room. Also an issue was a €12 charge per day for parking which was not mentioned at the start.
