Staff are excellent! Cannot fault service. Spa is fantastic and very reasonably priced. Grounds are well kept and peaceful. HOWEVER, basic room is less than 2*. We upgraded to suite, which while more spacious, the fabrics on the sofas and cushions was beyond disgusting!! The bed was solid, I have an actual bruised hip from the mattress! When we return...

This Hotel is very convenient with great mountain and sea views. The balcony is one of the best Hotels balconies. The location is great if you have a car and the parking is free. The breakfast was good with a beautiful terrace. The gym was too small and not good enough. I loved the Hotel and I strongly recommend it.

Every time I travel to Francavilla I stay in this hotel. They have two types of rooms, the best ones are very good, but both are fine. The breakfast in Summer enjoying the Sea view is wonderful. Regretfully I do not have to time to fully enjoy the hotel.

Just stayed 5 nights at Villa Maria. Overall, it passes the test and I was satisfied with my stay. The staff at the front desk are personable and helpful. The restaurant staff are good also. The shuttle driver looks a lot like 'Joe Peschi' and although he doesn't speak any English, he's a fun and personable guy. The property is... More

My husband and I have just spent a lovely week at Hotel Villa Maria. All the staff, from the front desk, to the waiters to the shuttle bus driver were friendly and helpful. I felt that everyone wanted us to have a great time and enjoy getting to know this lovely region of Italy. If you're after a relaxing break... More

We stayed at the hotel for two days. Our rooms were tidy and the service both at the reception as well as in the restaurant very professional and friendly. We really enjoyed our stay and would recommend it without restraints. The only thing that could be improved is the breakfast. Again, the service is firendly but variety is disappointing. Also,...

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Hotel Villa Maria for one night. The hotel had only one sign (that we saw, at least) on the state highway so it was a little bit of a challenge to find the correct street. Once we arrived, there was ample parking and check-in was a breeze. Our room was tastefully decorated, comfortable,... More

Amazing hotel in front of the beach, near by restaurants if you are going for a work visit is perfect, if its for vacations better to stay in Perscara that has more life., but if you preffer a quiet space francavilla is perfect for your relax time.

While attending a nearby wedding I stayed at this hotel with my wife and one year old son. He particularly enjoyed running around in the gardens. We found all the staff very accommodating with regard to our son, providing an excellent cot for him and waiving any charge for it. Our room had a great sea view.

Dear Sir, We are extremely surprised about this comment on tripadvisor, especially after a long and direct clarification between the customer and me personally. For all our veritable followers, even afraid I want comment the story with this “gentleman” in the euphemistic term of the word.
