A great hotel near the beach in Recco and near restaurants and shops. Our room had also a nice balcony with a view to the beach. The breakfast included all needed in a big buffet. The staff was very friendly and it was possible to park free next to the hotel. All this to a very good price.

This was our second stay at Hotel Elena in Recco. The hotel and the staff remain as wonderful as ever, and we highly recommend it to anyone traveling to that area. It is perfectly located, has incredible ocean views, is within walking distance to stores and restaurants, and also the beach. We hope to return again in the future!

Located overlooking the bay this hotel is a 60s style hotel clean and basic with free parking. The bedroom was clean with clean towels and the bed reasonably comfortable, A plentiful buffet style breakfast and a no frills hotel at a reasonable price. Recco is a town from the seventies and has nothing to stand out except the seafront.

Nice and clean hotel, with excellent service and beautiful breakfast. Recommend this hotel, when staying in Recco. The town itself, have had a hammer during WW2, and therefore, it hasn't a historical centre as such.

Dear guest, we are sorry that you are not left happy with our town. Sure, it's a very simple country, it does not have the charm of Portofino, but when you say it's all dirty you tell the fake.
