Sardatur Holiday Ratings

We are passionate about Italy, and our sole aim is to provide our customers with quality holidays, backed by solid experience and the highest level of customer care. We truly are the Italian specialists, with Italian directors who have over 30 years’ experience in selling holidays to Italy and a sales team also with many years of experience and a passion for selling Italy.

Sardatur Holidays comprises a large range of accommodation, from simple residences to luxury hotels. The official ratings are based on certain facilities or services being available and they do not take into account the size of the bedrooms or public rooms, nor the preferred décor pf the owner, which may be at odds with your taste. Hotels in the same category, even in the same resort, can vary considerably in character, ambience, service and facilities and may not offer the same staffing levels and facilities, or be as well maintained. it must be bourne in mind that cost is a good indication of standards, particulary when comparing hotels in the same star rating.

As well as the hotel's official star rating, we have also given our own special rating, based on our personal opinion. This rating should be taken into consideration, especially when comparing hotels of the same official star rating. By all means browse our website to get an idea of what we offer. However, if like many of our repeat customers, you would like the reassurance of speaking to someone with first hand knowledge of a particular property or area, then do call us.

About the hotel


Rapallo's Grand Hotel Bristol is one of the Italian Riviera's most prestigious hotels; situated on the Gulf of Tigullio, opposite the fashionable resort of Portofino. This stylish hotel exudes a sophisticated combination of old world glamour and the latest in contemporary comfort and technology. The construction dates back to 1908 and is characterised by its elegant liberty-style façade crowned by two large domes at either end of the building.  The hotel has a rich history, having served as a meeting place for political figures such as Mussolini, Chamberlain and Churchill. The hotel offers 86 elegantly furnished guestrooms and suites.

Set in parkland the hotel is surrounded by a profusion of trees and shrubs including magnolia, camellia, cluster-pine, rhododendron and azalea. Just moments away from the hotel, lie some of Italy's most stunning beaches, including the Marine Reserve of the Portofino Promontory.



There are two restaurants, one of which ‘Le Cupole’ is located in the roof garden, providing a unique view of the Gulf of Tigullio. The soft notes of Jazz music can be enjoyed whilst relaxing with a drink in Bar ‘Le Vie della Seta’. Next to the swimming pool, the ‘Pool Bar’ serves a delicious selection of light meals as well as a vast choice of cocktails. Both restaurants offer excellent à la carte menus that include typical Ligurian cuisine.



For those looking for some intensive pampering, the ‘Caroli’ Health & Fitness Club, located near the swimming pool, offers a variety of spa treatments, including Turkish bath, sauna, whirlpool and a fully equipped gym.  Beauty treatments are also available.
