Stayed at this hotel for 12 nights in July 2013. There are some pros and quite a few cons with this hotel. The pros first; the lady in the reception/office is very nice and helpful. She speaks good english, italian and russian and is very helpful and friendly. The location of the hotel is quite nice with a 200 meters walk to the beach (online it says 50 meters, but that is not correct) and a few hundred meters to the main event street during night time. To the city centre it is about a kilometer, and it is a nice walk in the evening with lots of shops and vendors along the way. Also we enjoyed the possibility of washing clothes at the hotel. There is both a washing machine, and a dryer there and it costs 3,50 Euro to wash a machine. Also the WiFi is both stable and fast in the entire hotel.
The Cons - we had an apartment for four persons (there were actually 5 beds in the room) and the room solution is very bad, and the room/apartment seems very cramped at all times. The standard of the room is not very good, and especially the bathroom where in bad condition. The shower-head holder was broken for most of our stay, even though they tried to repair it. The shower is very small and old. The room had two balconys, both of them very small, leaving us no chance to sit out together at the same time. There are noe furniture on either of the balconies, but they fit two chairs from the kitchen - nothing more. We payed for breakfast, and that was served on a nearby restaurant, as Mareo don't have their own restaurant. The breakfast was superbad - end of story. The room is cleaned every 6th day, and the towels are being changed every third. Also I would recommend to buy parking if you bring your own car. The area around the hotel is totally congested with traffic, and it is not easy to find a place to park the car. Parking is 7 Euro per day, and is done in the cellar of a different hotel a few hundred meters away from Mareo. Be advised that the parking cellar is very tight, and italians don't care too much about their cars! We had our car scratched pretty bad but the answer from the hotel was of-course "we know nothing". We bought "seats" at the beach included in the room price - and the bill said two sun beds and one umbrella. Mareo has their places at beach number 119, which is the lamest of all sections of the beach. You are given two sunbeds but no umbrella. You will be assigned a spot under a long tent, and if you would like an umbrella, you must pay extra for it. The price for two sunbeds and an umbrella is 20 Euro per day.
