We visited Villa Maria in the end of august and it was a very pleasant experience. We were upgrated and got a nice room with seaview. Lovely spa and a restaurant with the most professional and attentive waiters. A great dinner! We will be back another time. Cosy and relaxed hotel. It is a few years old but very charming.

This is our third time staying at this hotel. We love it here. The staff are helpful and friendly. The pool and grounds beautiful. The spa is lovely. The restaurant and food are top notch although the menu doesn't change much from day to day. Breakfast on the terrace with beautiful sea view is very good. The rooms are comfortable... More

Have visited this hotel many times in recent years. The service is consistently good and the food excellent. Facilities are very good with indoor and outdoor pools. Nice gym and beautiful gardens. The standard of rooms has always been good and if there have been any issues they have sorted immediately. Highly recommend.

We spent 4 nights here in the build up to and recovering from the Ironman 70.3 event in Pescara. We found the hotel to be excellent in virtually every respect and had a really relaxing time. The only matter that slightly affected our stay were that the walls between the rooms were fairly thin and so one night we were... More

We staid there 2 days returning yesterday from Pescara. The food and the restaurant including service was excellent. The service varied (from person to person), but they were very helpful changing the room when we arrived. However, they did not managed to start the AC and the temperature was never below 26 C. We were told that they did not... More

I've been to this hotel in august. I admit that common areas are nice. There is a beautiful garden and a nice furbished lobby, while on the other side corridors are dusty and old. I frankly got a little bit disappointed about the room. The furnitures are ok. Nothing special but normal and decent. What really disappointed me was the... More

This hotel is located in a quiet and peaceful location and offers a good spa. Anyway the rooms are old fashioned and breakfast is very basic (though in summer you can have it with a great seafront view). Staff is ok. The restaurant is good, but definitely too expensive. Sometimes football teams playing in pescara stay there, but they often... More

Hotel is a little bit far from the city center (about 18 euros taxi ride) but other than that, hotel is clean, rooms are spacious and modernly decorated, and customer service is excellent!
