Oyster Hotel Review

Hotel Cenobio Dei Dogi

Scene

Friendly and quiet seafront hotel

In the charming town of Camogli, the Hotel Cenobio Dei Dogi offers a peaceful setting. The hotel is comprised of two buildings, one painted pink and the other yellow, with forest green shutters. This town along the coastline is full of colorful buildings and this charming seafront hotel fits right in. A relaxing atmosphere begins in the outdoor areas, landscaped with pretty plants and stone statues. The hotel’s interior is a mix of modern features such as black and white checkered flooring and traditional decorations including patterned area rugs and large classical paintings. Orange-patterned seating sits under a lovely crystal chandelier in the common area, creating an eclectic appearance. To see the impressive views from this hotel, check out the live webcam on their website.

Rooms

Modest and elegant rooms with views of the sea or garden

Most rooms have white wooden furniture and white linens alongside bright neutral-toned walls creating a light, airy space. Each room has a subdued color scheme, like pale blue or gray, which creates a simple but chic design. There’s little décor aside from unique bedside lamps and area rugs over hardwood floors. Bathrooms are small but clean and feature colorful floor tiling; many of the showers are tiny, but some are larger or are a shower/tub combo. Rooms either look out at the sea or the garden and some have a balcony with two chairs and a small table. The Classic Sea View Room with Terrace has a terrace with lounge chairs and tables next to the pool and potted plants act as a divide between neighboring rooms. All rooms come with a satellite TV, minibar, safe, and free Wi-Fi.

Private beach and pool and on-site dining options

Hotel Cenobio Dei Dogi is unique in its access to the beautiful coast. The hotel has a private beach for guests, complete with lounge chairs, umbrella shading, and stunning panoramic views of the water and colorful Camogli buildings. Note that the beach is stone-filled and doesn’t have any sand. Lounge chairs and well-landscaped plants surround the medium-sized outdoor pool. A rust-colored sun deck is adjacent to the pool with several lounge chairs facing the water.

La Terrazza Bar serves drinks and appetizers on granite-top tables and wooden chairs overlooking the sea, but it’s only open during select months. The fine dining Il Doge Restaurant has a striking wall of windows; free breakfast buffet is served here in the mornings. The indoor Il Doge Bar is a large, sea-themed space that has columns painted with a beach scene and blue and green lighting along the wall; there’s also a piano to catch live music. There are several meeting rooms available and a ornately-decorated chapel with religious relics.
