Hotel Lido Palace is located only 20 metres from the beach in the middle of Santa Margherita's beach promenade and is a beautiful and elegant building. With such an exceptional seafront setting, of course the hotel offers superb sea views and direct access to its own private beach within a few seconds walk from the hotel.
Here you stay in the centre of a charming town with lots of deli's, shops, restaurants and cafes with quaint piazza's scattered around. You can take advantage of the beach right in front where you can rent sun loungers and parasols and enjoy a cool drink or lunch in the beach cafe. Staying centrally has it's good and bad points. Good is that everything is on hand, but possibly not so good is that the coastal road passes the hotel which remains busy for most of the day during peak season. However, the rooms are double glazed and there is a pedestrian crossing in front of the hotel.
