This is second stay at Stella Maris. The rooms are beautiful, the location is perfect; the staff is so very friendly and helpful. Upon arrival - before we even told them our names, the owner smiled and said in her best English "I know you! You stayed here last year!" - that is the type of atmosphere and people here! The location is perfect! walking distance to the waterfront; train station; and the Chinque Terra! The rooms we stayed in had beautifully painted ceilings and were very generous in space with updated bathrooms. The breakfasts each mornign were delightful out in the garden under cloth covered gazebos. Great Place!
