Reviewed 16 August 2014

I was really happy with the choice of this hotel. The people at the reception were really friendly and spoke enough English to communicate easily. The room was nice, clean, and offered a stunning view of the sea. The breakfast was also good. If you want to go to the beach, this is maybe a 10 to 15 minutes walk.
However, if you want to visit Maratea, the center is approx. 7 km away. In my opinion, a car is very important in this area.

I found this hotel via trip advisor and was very happy with my choice. A very quiet location set outside both the port & centre of Maratea so you need a car for getting around. But the coastal views of the sea from the sea view rooms & the terrace infront of reception & also the restaurant for breakfast were breathtaking.

The staff were very helpful & spoke some English although I would recommend learning some useful phrases.

A great hotel I would recommend

I am giving this hotel 5 stars because the value was outstanding. The views from our balcony were superb, especially at sunset. We had a very large, comfortable room and there was plenty of free parking. You definitely need a car here. We came in May and the large and attractive indoor pool was heated - a very nice treat at the end of the day. Wi-fi worked well in the foyer. The hotel's own restaurant was good although we found the opening time of 8pm rather late. We also had a very good set meal at the White Horse Restaurant 5 minutes walk down the road. The beach is pebbly and 15 mins walk away. Breakfast was good.

Room Tip: Room 102 is large with a big balcony (superior double)

Reception was friendly and had some English. Our room was on the top floor with a balcony overlooking the sea and with a view all the way up the coast. However the hotel is 7 km from the Centro Historica Maratea, about 4 km from the port. It is possible to walk to the beach from the hotel but unfortunately rain made that unattractive for our stay. The bathroom is good. Bed and pillows firm but good. There was a very small safe and drinks fridge but no glasses. We asked for boiling water to make a cup of coffee in our room and were given this plus cups, saucers and a tea pot. We ate at the restaurant - La Locando di Nettuno - no desserts offered but food - eg seafood stew, sword fish, pork etc were well cooked. Wifi in foyer was fast enough, tourist info was also provided. Good breakfast.There is also a fairly large indoor pool but it was not heated.

We arrived just before sunset after a very long and eventful drive. We found the hotel easily and parked with ease, as there seemed to be a small number of guests at that time.
The receptionist was friendly, very competent and helpful, despite the fact that she was struggling with a severe allergy - she was a real trooper.

We had a superior room: spacious, well appointed and comfortable. The terrace came with gobsmacking views across the bay and out to sea. It was so lovely that we weren't too keen to go out for dinner, but eventually we mustered the energy and were glad we did - another good restaurant worth writing to Trip Advisor about.

Quiet, cool nights made for very restorative sleep.

Breakfast is continental, so it might feel a little repetitive during long stays, but the coffee tastes great and the views from the breakfast tables are enchanting.

There is plenty to do in the area besides roasting on the beach, but it's best to have a good car or at least a scooter (if you're brave/reckless) to get around Maratea. We had a 4x4 and it proved very useful in reaching some of the towns up in the mountains (fantastic sea views from up there, incidentally): Basilicata and Calabria were hit by landslides and roadworks have been slow to start, so along some stretches of road (well away from Maratea, though) some surfaces were very uneven.

Maratea is rightly popular in July and August, but I'd love to go back during the low-season. The quiet, service and quality of our stay at Hotel Martino were amazing.

The Martino is one of those hidden beauties. Spectacular views from the rooms and a short walk to beautiful grey sand beaches. Maratea is a short drive away and offers a lovely seaside town with marina and bayside dining.
Rooms are modern and sparkling clean, the dining is wonderful and the staff knowledgeable and helpful. Plenty of parking onsite and internet available but only in the reception and lounge/bar area. we will be using this as a base in future to explore the highlands and valleys behind Maratea

This is a nice simple family run hotel. Great views from our room and hotel in general. The weather was cold for the time of year and my only disappointment was that the indoor pool was not heated and was so cold you could not use it. Restaurant and breakfast is very nice. I would recommend this hotel.
