The Hotel Belvedere is a great mix of luxury amenities and informal atmosphere, run by a hands-on owner and her attentive staff. The location, ambiance, pool, and extensive spa facilities have broad appeal, but the hotel caters especially to traveling cyclists, capitalizing on the region's fame as a popular bike touring destination with daily guided excursions, rentals, and a repair shop. It's not on the beach, but it's close enough (two blocks) to be an option for those who want sand and sea time. The most basic rooms are small, but different layouts and sizes are available and each is uniquely furnished. Weekly parties, group outings, and the neighborhood's nightlife make this a fantastic spot for socializing, but travelers seeking a quieter stay can look at other nearby seaside hotels such as the Atlantic Hotel Riccione.
