We very much enjoyed our stay at this hotel. It was very conveniently situated for walking into Portofino. The staff were excellent and the food delicious. I would definitely recommend the restaurant.
My only 2 criticisms were:
no tea and coffee making facilities in the room.
very little comfortable sitting area/lounge to have a tea or coffee
as the weather was not terribly good for part of our stay.
Apart from this, we were happy.

Great location in Santa Margherita. Close enough to walk to everything but away from the hustle and bustle of some busier locations. Terrific and helpful staff--full ,of information and suggestions and info on bus, train, boat schedules.
We travel the world and have never stayed in a better hotel than the Splendido
The ambiance is amazing,the staff manage to do everything you want,but not with
Servitude but wonderful smiling friendliness.
The intimacy of the bar at night,the music and dancing for those who wanted
To stay up was just great.
The pool area and all the garden flowers make you feel so so happy
And so lucky to be there.
For us it was our type of hotel a dream

There is little doubt that the location is 5 star, and the hotel itself is really nice. However, at no time throughout the booking and confirmation process did we realise, nor were we informed, that the hotel is only accessible by boat (or a 40 minute hike - not on paved roads). After some level of stress finding the ferry station (which was also not easily found), and also a car park in the tiny portside town of Comagli, we really enjoyed the boat ride over, and then relaxed.
Don't bring any extra luggage than you REALLY need for your stay. You will need to carry it both to the ferry stop, and also to the hotel from the ferry stop - up stairs. Not a huge drama, but we are travelling for 3 months, and have a medium suitcase each, which was difficult.
Importantly, the hotel is most certainly worth it, just be aware of the constraints.
