“Lovely”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 April 2013

I loved Ravello and the hotel Vill Maria fit right in. It was warm welcoming and very accommodating. Ludmilla prepared such nice cappuccinos for us every morning. The breakfast room is so nice to sit in and look out at the countryside. The room was large and nicely appointed.
We were slightly preseason so their restaurant was not open, so we ate in town. We would have tried it for sure. All,in all a very nice stop on our trip

Room Tip: We got an upgraded room up a short flight if stairs, worth it

My husband and I did not stay at the Villa Maria but had the pleasure to go there for the day and attend a private cooking class with Vincenzo! Being that my husband barley knows how to boil water, this was sure to be interesting. Vincenzo was fantastic and the whole day was great fun! We cooked, ate, drank, walked the grounds and gardens and enjoy beautiful views! I highly recommend at least going and taking a cooking class, or staying if you have the time! Lovely place, I am recommending this to my friends who will be visiting this summer.

The Hotel Villa Maria is owned by one of the nicest people you will meet in Italy! The Professore as everyone knows him is very friendly and kind and willing to hepl you in any way he can. A very spotless and clean hotel with the most beautiful breathtaking view of the ocean! I was there and it was snowing for the fist time in many years and then the sun came out and it was glorious! Would stay here every time I come to Italy!!

We stayed here for only three days and it was magic. The hotel was comfortable the restaurant spectacular and the staff excellent. Ravello was lovely and the Villa Cimbrone is well worth a visit and we'll be returning as soon as possible.

Stayed August 2012, travelled with family

we loved our trip to Ravello and had an amazing time at the hotel. The room was fantastic. The restaurant was the best meal we had in Italy and the staff were 100% courteous, helpful and accommodating. We are already planning our trip for next year and cant wait to stay for a longer time.

The absolute highlight of our recent trip to Italy was a day spent in Ravello at the Hotel Giordano & Villa Maria Cooking School. Our host/owner and his chef Vincenzo could not have been more charming in showing us the many aspects of their beautiful location. Never mind that the day in mid-September was overcast & somewhat drizzly. Vincenzo showed us fresh organic tomatoes in the canning process, we sniffed the fabulous aroma of homemade limoncello in the works, & he had a wonderful lunch menu for 6 planned especially for us. But the real fun was in the cooking! Vincenzo was organized & knowledgeable in his preparation, he was gracious & entertaining in managing 6 mediocre home cooks & we had a bundle of fun -in addition to a really delicious meal. It truly was the best memory of our entire trip. Thank you CinCin & Vincenzo! Michael & Ann

We were there for 6 nights. The people were lovely. The owner is very proud of everyone who works there and his heritage. All the food is from their own organic garden and orchard. The views are amazing. The little boutique while expensive stocks items worth looking over and the boutique assistant is ver y nice, even opening it specially for us. That's the good....
The not so good...it's way too high and steep climb to it. The beds are very hard and after six nights we were exhausted. However what really irked my husband and me was being charged for tea which we had to room service because there were no tea making facilities in the room. Maybe it's an Italian thing?
Overall a pleasant experience. Would we stay there again? Probably not.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Situated in the historic centre between the Clarisse nunnery and S. Francis Convent, in a restful aristocratic area so much as to be chosen, the only hotel in the area, by the French guide-book "Relais du Silence" as an oasis of peace and by the Italian "Charme e Relax" as Ravello's pearl. Villa Maria assures his guests in addition to maximum tranquillity also the most services including the parking of nearby Hotel Giordano (of the same property) where it is possible to park for free the car and take advantage of free luggage handling and of the swimming pool (parking and swimming pool situated at the sister HOtel Giordano, approx. 5 Minutes walking distance). Rich and interesting is the history of this villa which was roman noble Marquis de Cinque family's manor, an history which blends with Ravello's and the Amalfi Coast's. The structure, while preserving the elegant forms of a lordly mansion, in the years has undergone noteworthy redecorations which have fashioned its actual splendour. ... more   less
