“Best host on the coast”
Reviewed 5 September 2013

We stayed in the villa (5 people) of Hotel Maresca for two weeks. It was clean, comfortable, reasonably well kitted out and very easily accessible. But apart from the amazing views, the gorgeous weather, the spectacular food (and cheap groceries), the fact that we never once ate dinner inside the house but always always on the enormous terrace, and the relative ease of getting around, the one thing that really stands out amongst all this awesome was the hotel's owner Antonio. To say he was great is an understatement. He made us feel really welcome, was incredibly well organised and gave us a comprehensive orientation to the area and safety considerations (something like that is usually left to the hotel rule book, right?), and then he both left us alone as well as made himself readily available if we had questions. And if you sit him down to dinner or hand him a drink or two, he is very gracious and has some hilarious anecdotes to entertain you with.

But - and this is the important part I feel - his recommendations were AMAZING and his network of contacts really top class. When he said "Oh you should go here for dinner" it was less because he had some kind of deal going on with the restaurant and more that he and the owner were friends, and we were treated SO WELL by everyone wherever we went. It really made the holiday special and it made the Praiano community feel a little like a family, like we were locals just moved in and everyone was welcoming us and really interested in who we were and where we'd come from.

If you're looking for a holiday experience like that on the Amalfi Coast, Praiano is the place to go, and if you want to be treated like a friend and get the best advice in the area, then stay at Hotel Maresca. And save your wine corks; Antonio collects them!
