“Wonderful location”
Reviewed 11 May 2014

Just enjoyed a 4 day stay at Villa Maria to celebrate a friends wedding in Ravello. The location of this hotel is just amazing with fantastic panaromic views of the hills down to the sea. The hotel restaurant is located on a lovely terrace where we enjoyed lunch on our first day. The walk to the Ravello main square is no more then 10 minutes and there is a porter to help you to the hotel with your luggage. The rooms are quite basic, fairly typical of Italian hotels though were definitely clean and a comfortable size.
The breakfast was uneventful and the cleaning staff though very effective had a habit of making quite a lot of noise in the rooms above from quite early in the day. Also we were informed that the sister hotel down the road had a pool, however am pleased it was not overly warm during our stay as there was no water in the pool. This information was not made available prior to booking but seemed typical of the area.
Overall the staff were pleasant, location amazing and would definitely stay again. Ravello is so stunning!

We are happy to reply to the kind feedback of our clients!
We are more than happy to find out our guests enjoyed their stay at our Hotel and that they appreciated the fantastic view, the hotel restaurant with its lovely terrace and the other services the kind customer gently listed.
We are glad to clients appreciated the efficiency of our cleaning staff - even if we are sorry the clients thought the noise of the clients (who were accommodated the floor above) was caused by our staff, but it was not.
As the clients well noted, our swimming pool was not the only one to be empty.
Most of the hotels in Ravello had some delays due to the bad weather conditions.
We did not advice our guests before, because we thought, in our good faith, to get it ready by the day of their arrival… unfortunately we could not.
We hope to meet the clients again and let them spend their vacation with the maximum comforts we always want to guarantee!!

The position of the hotel is excellent with far reaching views to the coast.
The superior room I stayed in had no outside space but a panoramic view from the window.
The room however was extremely basic and had little in the way of creature comfort. It had initially no hot water........after 2 complaints and 1 day I achieved tepid water. The solution apparently was to run the tap for 15 mins before you wanted a shower!
The breakfast is ordinary and cannot be compared to the excellent quality of the restaurant which I would certainly recommend.
The staff are or were during my stay entirely disinterested.

We are very glad to reply to the customers’ feedback.
First of all, we are very happy to find out they enjoyed the nice location, our restaurant and the beautiful view our Hotel has.
The Superior room the clients had, is situated in the annex of the hotel, which is even more exposed to the view over the sea.
Being Formerly a country mansion, Villa Maria prefigured a different layout for the rooms of different sizes, different position, etc and this is indeed the peculiarity and the charme of our hotel.
The great average of our guests have been always appreciating our Rich Buffet Breakfast and, since tastes is personal, we must take in consideration the massive positive opinions.
The kindness and the warmth of our staff is mentioned in all customers’ reviews and the hot water problem was caused by a temporary breakdown solved in less than the times indicated.
We hope of having clarified all the doubts and to leave in the future beautiful memories of Ravello and our hotels.

What a lovely hotel. We were there in mid-April, which unfortunately was freezing cold. We ended up dragging our bags through the steep streets of Ravello to get there, not realizing that they have a free porter service. So please don't make our mistake! We also had to eat a dinner quickly because we were rushing to a concert--also a mistake. That food should be enjoyed slowly with a delicious glass of house wine. The staff were extremely attentive and helpful throughout our trip. Even if you don't stay there, you MUST go there for a meal. Vegetables from the organic garden on the property. Beautiful views. Chocolate lava cake to die for. If you can afford it, do it.

My husband and I just returned from a 2-week vacation which included stops in London, the Amalfi Coast, Cortona and Florence. While our entire trip was wonderful, the 2 nights we spent at Villa Maria in Ravello topped the list. We highly recommend Villa Maria to anyone traveling to that area. This was our first visit to the Amalfi coast and we arrived with no lodging in place. We drove through Positano, Praiano and Amalfi before heading up the hill to Ravello – we were so glad we landed there and especially at the Villa Maria which provided exactly what we were looking for. The staff was wonderful, the room was spacious, the views were incredible and the owner, Vincenzo, was happy to share special stories and the history of the Villa. Ravello is a beautiful spot and Villa Maria was perfect. Our room overlooked the terrace and with the twinkly lights and music, it felt like a movie set. Absolutely perfect and we hope to return one day! Assunta at the front desk was amazingly helpful with a smile on her face at all times. She is the reason we choose Villa Maria after also checking on lodging at Villa Cimbrone. Villa Maria had the feel we were looking for and they didn’t disappoint, it was perfect.

We recently stayed 2 nights at the Villa Maria Hotel in Ravello. The location can't be beat although there are a lot of stairs to climb to get to the property so not for elderly or disabled. The free parking is also a huge bonus and the lovely valet - Marco was our favorite - brings your luggage to and from the hotel with a golf cart. The food in the restaurant was also excellent, especially the dinner. Would definitely recommend this property.

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
