How would you feel when you woke up for the Music of the waves, Beautiful Sunrise and the Sounds of the chirping Birds?
Can there be a better way to begin your day?
Don’t worry, this is not just an imagination. It is the exact feeling I have experienced when staying at the Mare Hotel Savona. This feeling is what made me pen down this review in here. My first Hotel Review on my travel blog.
And just like how the arrow out of the bow is gone, we cannot get back the vacation too. So, the places where we stay should feel like a home away from home. Right?
It just takes some homework to be done before we begin the vacation. And hence I always rely on my favorite portal for hotels.
When I booked the hotel through my favorite Hotels.com portal, I did not have much expectation. Because, my plan was to stay here and visit San Remo, Dolceacqua and other nearby places. But the hotel made me spent a nice time in the evenings there.
The moment you enter the hotel, I am sure that you will fall in love with all the crazy Ocean theme all around. Be it the pebble themed couches or the boat themed bar, you will see the touch of Ocean in all.
As if this pleasant intro was not sufficient, I got another sweet surprise while checking in. Well, not just one, but two surprises. First, I reached there before 2 hours of check-in, but still they were able to provide me with the room. Second, they had actually upgraded my room with the one that has the Pool and Beach view.
This is what welcomed me to the Hotel.
The Mare hotel lies along the coast of the Italian Riviera in Savona. Savona is a small city with a major port which imports coal and oil. Most attractions in this small city can be covered in a day. If you are driving, you will reach the hotel in less than 3 minutes once you take the exit in Savona from Autostrade. There are two parking places for the hotel. One is in the open area and is free. The other is covered one and is charged at 10Euro per day. If using public transport, you can reach using the Bus line number 6. I notice that this is very frequent and runs at a 10-15mins frequency and stops right in front of the hotel.
Rooms are really spacious, with a LED TV, minibar and of course the defacto Wi-Fi. Few of the rooms are equipped with a bathtub although the room we were staying in was not. But it had a beautiful view of the pool and the beach. My recommendation is to make sure you book a room with the beach view. The early morning sunrise is something not to be missed.
The Mare hotel Savona houses two nice restaurants. One called the Bistrot and the other Spurcacciun. Since I traveled here on Christmas days, I could not get to try the restaurant. The fact that it was full with reservation says how good it would be. But had the breakfast in here. They had a good collection of food to choose from.
Apart from the ocean themed interiors, they also have a 2 level swimming pool. The swimming pool is situated facing the private beach and also houses a cocktail bar. The lightings and settings with the decors like the corals and fish-shaped objects take the cake. The bar in the hotel has a nice front desk in the Boat based theme.
The staff here are very courteous and friendly. Very helpful in guiding you too. I have stayed in many hotels during festival days, but the gesture from here is something I will never forget. Especially the chocolate gifts during the check-out for the guest us really great. Maybe a simple gesture, but will make sure their guests feel important.
