We stayed here for 2 nights in July, and I felt like we were staying in a Mediterranean villa, with terraced stone stairs down to the Tyrrhenian sea. The breakfast buffet was varied and wonderful, the coffee, great, and the staff was friendly and helpful. We had a fairly small room on a top floor with view of the sea from our small balcony, which was a very good value. The room was clean and air conditioned; the bed was comfortable. There is no elevator, so plan accordingly. There are two swimming pools, which are staffed with a snack and coffee bar during the day, and multiple seating areas, shaded and/or with views. The hotel was a nice location from which to explore the various "frazioni" (sub-sections) of the Comune of Maratea: Maratea Borgo (meaning the "old town" on the northern slopes of Mount San Biagio facing away from the sea), Maratea Porto, the port on the water, Acquaafredda, Cersuta, Fiumicello, Marina, Castrocucco, Castello (where the "Statua del Cristo Redentore" is located), Santa Caterina, Massa and Brefaro.
As another reviewer has written, be careful when you use your GPS to reach the hotel. The "Contrada Ogliastro" address was not in our Garmin Unit. Stay straight northwest on the SS18 past Maratea and you'll see a sign for the hotel on the left minutes after leaving the border of Maratea. We would definitely stay here again!
