We are frequent travellers and hotel Elena is one of the best sea hotels. Maybe it is not a 'five' star monster but you will find here everything what you want from any sea side hotel. We were very moved by welcoming - my wife has the same name as...this hotel - Elena. So management send us upon arrival a bottle of excellent local white wine and a bowl of fruits! We love it!

The room was one of the smallest rooms I have ever stayed in. As for being a 'superior' room - very doubtful although the room did have a view and a balcony. However, the balcony was also quite small with 2 plastic chairs and a table. Also having to go to reception every 6 hours for a wifi code is very inconvenient and odd!!!!!! The hotel does have its own little pebbled bathing area, but only with deck chairs. If you want a sunbed its 5 Euros each from next door. The air con is ok when switched on. The staff sometimes turn it off from reception at night in case it overheats after being on all day??? Plus points were breakfast and location. Room advice - rooms with large balconies and loungers are 101, 102 + 103 on the lower floor so less of a view).

Thank you to Domenico, the wonderfully friendly and efficient Manager and the kind reception staff, his cleaning, kitchen and all staff actually, for making our honeymoon stay so wonderful and memorable. From the moment we arrived, we felt so very well looked after, the warmth, friendliness and instantaneous offer of assistance regardless what the questions were. The seaview from our balcony was just so special, I could hear the waves and felt the true peace, serenity and natural beauty of the place. Our room was immaculately clean and remained that way the whole week thanks to the lovely cleaning staff. Our breakfasts were unbelievably good for a continental breakfast, we had the very best selection of fresh fruit, juices, coffees, teas, fresh wholemeal loaf, homemade cakes and pastries, a new boiled egg machine which worked very well, and the lady looking after the breakfasts was amazingly efficient, warm and friendly. We were greeted with a complimentary fruit basked and bottle of bubbly on arrival which was completely unexpected, and really we could not have asked for more. Now back in the UK, we have such wonderful memories of our week at Hotel Elena in Recco, and we can't wait to return another time to feel that true feeling of peace, tranquility and relaxation. The view from the breakfast balcony was just superb, watching anglers, surfboarders, swimmers, watching the waves crashing up over the rocks, seeing the sun come over the hills in the distance. It is a perfect location also for people without a car as the train and bus stations are literally 5-10 minutes walk away maximum, and we walked along the road footpath very safely to Camogli which is a very beautiful little village, just 2 kms away. We also did some cross-country hiking on the 'sentieri' or mule tracks, used the trains and buses to discover other places like Camogli, Rapallo, Santa Margherita, Zoagli, Chiavari and Ruta., there are lots of things to see without going too far, and it

beautiful sea view, but extreamely noisy from highway just behind the hotel. A perfect choice if you travel from one part of Italy to another and need to stay for 1 night (easy to find, very close to A1 highway) but not ok for long stay.

Personnel accueillant, hotel très propre, mais comme beaucoup d'autres hotels italiens, déco vieillotte, Nous sommes venu par hasard à Recco pour nous rapprocher de Portofino qui est un lieux magique, mais personnellement Recco n'a pas de vie et la petite ville n'a aucun charme. Par contre l'hotel à une belle vue avec balcon sur la baie, c'est très agréable

The hotel was really excellent in all points. The view and the near sea are absolutly great. All people are very friendly and speak two or more languages, even when you just have breakfast. And it is easy to find: just follow the beach!!!

Our 3-night stay at Elena in July 2004 was pleasant. The room was adequate, clean, and well-kept (although we did pay extra for a "balcony" that was nothing more than an extended ledge with a railing). Staff were pleasant and the person at the front desk had enough English to give us some helpful directions.

Visita avvenuta fuori stagione. Il parcheggio è piuttosto piccolo e gli spazi comuni sono piuttosto angusti, fatta eccezione per le terrazze sul mare. La camera con terrazzo e vista mare era spaziosa e pulita, così come pure il bagno con enorme spazio-doccia, ove però manca una mensola per appoggiare il necessario per radersi ecc... Nella stanza non c'era il frigobar. La colazione a buffet è piuttosto scarna, ma è bello il locale dove si consuma, affacciato sul mare. Cordiale ma migliorabile il servizio offerto dalla gestione familiare. Il prezzo tutto sommato è abbastanza alto per il servizio offerto, anche se allineato con gli standard della Riviera ligure.

Il tipo di camera (con terrazza) non era disponibile, nonostante fosse segnalato come disponibile sul sito web. Inoltre, non era possibile accedere al mare, causa lavori di ripristinamento della spiaggia. Non eravamo stati avvertiti nemmeno di questo. L'ascensore era fuori servizio all'arrivo, creando non pochi difficoltà con i baggagli e un passeggino. Il rapporto prezzo/qualità era pessimo: ?140 per una piccola stanza senza la colazione, con vista sulle gru...
