“Lovely 3 Star Hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 July 2014

The Hotel Villa Maria was lovely, its location just a short stroll into Sorrento’s main square.
The staff were very friendly, the food good and the rooms comfortable and cleaned every day.
We arrived about 11-30pm but they laid on a evening meal as we were on full board which was much appreciated.
It could get a bit crowded in the dining room at breakfast and in the evening. You usually had to share tables which may not be to everybody’s liking.
We normally like to pay for our drinks as we go but at this hotel you can only charge to your room and as all drinks are very expensive the bar bill can be a bit of a shock at the end of the week.
We were there as part of a Rivera Travel holiday so we were not at the hotel during the day.

This hotel has a great position being an easy walk into town. The pool is good, the staff are helpful but sadly the hotel is rather ho hum.
For a start here you are on one of the most beautiful places in Italy and the dinning room has no windows, ditto the lounge and bar....very odd. I booked a single room, I found most single rooms looked on on the apartments nest door, third time lucky I got a pool view. The room had two very small single beds {when will hotels learn single travelers can't abide them} but when i pushed them together the maid made them up as a double, so hooray for her...yes i did tip.
I was with a tour so food provided the standard was not great and the gala dinner was frankly abysmal...but the wine list was good.

Room Tip: keep going until you get a window with a view

Just returned from a a 7 night stay at the villa Maria with my wife.

We arrived just after lunch after a very early start, we were told our room was ready!! I had booked the annex room, and it is separate from the main hotel, we had to carry our cases up 4 flights of stairs, not good after a long journey. When we entered the room I was more than disappointed, within seconds I told the receptionist I was refusing to stay there, the room was old, tired, dirty walls, poor furniture and a metal shutter for a curtain! The receptionist said it was just as the pictures......it wasn't!
We carried our cases back to reception and asked for another room, we were then told it would be 200+ euros extra!! I stuck to my guns as the annex room was not as advertised. Needless to say it was sorted quickly.
The new room in the main building was a lot better, even so it was still dated, but clean.
Everything in this hotel is extra -
- WIFI in the room.
- safety deposit box
- towels for the pool
- drinks at the pool bar are very expensive, and chargeable to the room only!
- city tax of 1 euro each per night is chargeable in cash at the end of the stay.
- mini bar in the room is overpriced
Other than that, the breakfast is very good although we were rushed when we went for a late breakfast.
The pool area is pretty good and they have made the best of what space they have, the sunbeds are comfy (even without a towel)
The staff are very friendly and try to help you as much as possible.
Regardless of everything above we had a great holiday in sorrento and will definitely will be back next year!
This hotel could be a lot better with a few little changes, other than the annex rooms!

Rooms a little tired but very clean, we had a patio area outside with table and chairs which was lovely. The pool and outside bar area is very pleasant, but not enough sun beds. Food was nice with a good choice. Highly recommend the soups . The location is very good, with a supermarket next door. What really makes this hotel though is the staff, everyone of them are fantastic.

This was a very comfortable hotel, located right near the center of town. Short walk to all the restaurants, bars and shops. We had a nice spacious corner room with 2 balconies, overlooking the water and the mountainside on the other side.The staff was very friendly and professional. There was a very quaint dining room with a very nice breakfast. Fresh baked goods, croissants and eggs with bacon was a great start to the morning. If you are leaving for a tour in the morning, beware it can be quite busy and you may have to wait for a table. The A/C was a little off and the fact that you have to remove the keycard to disable the electricity while you are not in the room, made it difficult to cool the room quickly. But we managed with the breeze coming off the water. The rooftop sitting area made for a great place to "hang out" after a long day overlooking Mt. Vesuvius and the beautiful sea. The pool was very clean with ample seating to relax in the afternoons, with a bar for a drink or snack. The bartender, Matteo (I think that was his name) was fantastic !!! The best part of this hotel was the fact that it was within steps to the main street, and if you wanted to stroll, you didn't have to take a cab, walk up or down stairs or hills, you were just there !! We would definitely do it again.

We have just returned from a 7 night holiday staying at this hotel. ( a package holiday with Riviera Travel)......The Hotel is classed " 3 star" which I think is fair. Our room 503 had brilliant views ( paid extras ) and was good...maid service excellent! Don't use the mini bar !!!!
The meals were adequate but sometimes a little hectic particularly breakfast as trips went out early..Lower floor rooms do not have such a good outlook. Pool area clean. All staff very pleasant particularly Valentino on reception...what a smile and sense of humour! Very well postioned just on the edge of town only a short walk away. I have read a previous comment about the staff being unhelpful.....We did not witness anything of that nature despite some folks being rather demanding. The wines in the diner are expensive....so beware...don't add them to your tab !!!!!...don't have any !!!......A previous comment was about the road up to the reception, this is steep and could be a problem for people who are less mobile.
All in all we enjoyed our stay, but you need to be selective with your rooms....we would stay again.

Room Tip: high floor.....503 best...top left looking to sea...full sea view
