... themselves. It's my + co. Job to weed out the actors and teach them the repertoire and material they will need in order to succeed and become majestic THEATRINO actors therefore leaving the beauty of Sanremo and embarking on their epic adventure over ...
... and nunnery which is now just a church and all that remains are the external walls. We walked through the quirky, hilly streets, explored their 'private' beaches where you have to pay to get on the beach and even more to hire a sun-bed or use the change rooms! Something we couldn't get our heads around! Apparently all the public beaches are further out of town and aren't very nice at all.
After this we stopped into the Pharmacy my cousin ...
Italy wants France to join their railway and France don't want a bar of it!....so the result is.. if you want to purchase a train ticket from one country to the other you (purchase online of course) or you have to purchase one to the border and buy your ongoing ticket from there!!
We had a super day over the border in Italy at Ventimiglia....Friday markets ...seemed to be the same band of people ...
The weather was not that flash this morning. Overcast and cool, but not raining.
We decided to jump on the 9:55 train and head across into Italy for lunch. Getting to the train station from the apartment was a good training run for Saturday, when we would need to do it with our bags. Turned out to be a piece of cake as the tram is about two mins from our door ...
... bed and could give it us for 60...we checked the bed out...small??? it was totally fine! Yayyyyy. So we ventured back out to the sea front and shared a tourists set menu of prawn cocktail, salmon pasta, the most delicious mussels I have had so far and a sorbet! They looked at us a bit funny for sharing but who cares!! It took all my power not to touch the bread tho...we then went back to our room and fell asleep to Italian tele! How rock and roll!

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Delle Mimose Diano Marina
First off, Diano Marina is worth the visit, beautiful setting with very nice restaraunts and the locals are very nice. Thank goodness there's high quality places to eat because you certianly wouldnt want to eat every day in this hotel. Fish a chips one night (oh wow! living in Scotland I've never tried that before), and another night the meat was off, the smell made your stomach churn.

Diano Marina is a fantastic place to go on holiday, so much to do and see. The hotel Delle Mimosa is not the place to stay if you want a relaxing holiday. The management are very rude to the customers, the food is terrible but thankfully there are wonderful restaurants all around. If you aren't in bed by 12:00, the lights are switched off and you are sent to bed! Don't take children because if they do anything they will be shouted at abusively. Yes it is in a perfect location but spoiled by the strict regime of meal times and bed times. I would definately go back to Diano Marina but never to the above hotel or the Bel Soggiorno which is owned by the same people and their priority is not the enjoyment of the customers but purely to make money and cut corners. There have been some improvements like new bathrooms but all previous reviews stand and there were many unhappy customers in the hotel when we were there. We did complain to the owner and he did speak to the management but the manager put all the blame on the waitresses. The 4 Romanian waitresses were the only good thing about the hotel as they worked very hard under difficult management.
We visited in September 2003 & found the hotel basic but clean.
the staff very polite & helpful.
the lounge was decorated very strange to say the least ( pink was someone,s from the sixtys )
Food was ok but repetative.
the best thing about this hotel is the location!! So near the promenade
& wonderfull beaches just a 10 minute walk.
We would certainly go again, the area is so nice you spend very little time in the hotel.
The evening entertainment was a joke! ( some man blowing a whistle ).
But there are so many good eating places & entertainment close by.
A sercurity box is a must as most keys fit the same doors!
All this said we will certainly go back I hope! one day.
I stayed for a week in November last year and had a brilliant time, food was OK, hotel clean, staff polite. The holiday was with Shearings coach tours and was very well organised and we were of mixed ages (not all english senior citizens!). I have heard that under new management, it will be refurbished in time for Christmas. I would go there again as it was an excellent value package. My bed was fine, shower room very clean.
Well what can you say!!!!
1. Dont take small children.
2. If you like camp beds this is the one for you.
3. Do you like old crusty rolls here they are!
4. Sample the italian food, by going into town.
5. Quiet!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! not on your life.
6. Dinner bell dont miss it you wont get feed.
7. Complain, no one will care.
8. Bed time 12.00 or you get sent to bed.
9. All inclusive, small meals, small drinks, last day not included as inclusive.
10. Its a four hour coach trip and you only get a 10 minute stop ( DONT EAT ON THE COACH)
11. Have ice cream for pudding only edable food.
Have a good holiday!!!!!!!!!
This is a very basic hotel run on a shoestring for the sole benefit of the owners.
Hotel delle Mimose, Diano Marina
If your taste runs to school meals, prison-style regime (only one roll per person for breakfast, and penalties for missing the warning bell announcing "meals"), absence of any furnishings in your bedroom apart from the bed and a small hanging cupboard, nylon loose covers circa 1953 on sofas in public areas, and an un-openable window with a shutter permanently bolted shut in your room where (surprise!) the centre light doesn't work.... well, this is certainly the hotel for you.....If not, be advised - steer clear!
