Splendido, doesn't the name invoke warmth, langor, luxury? If that's what you think, then the Hotel Splendido in dreamy Portofino is calling you.
Finally, the other sine qua nons: (i) Internet was included in the price of the room and wireless was available everywhere including the pool area; and (ii) the food ... heavenly.
The hillside hotel has a sister property along the harbor, the Spledido Mare. There is a shuttle van running between the two locations at precise 20-minute intervals. The shuttle obviates the need to walk or drive the steep, tight serpentine road to and from the hotel, although the walk is worth doing (downhill) at least once.
To take a few liberties with their tag line: the Splendido certainly made me feel that way. This is a place I'm definately willing to return.
