We stayed in this hotel for one night during a long drive home. This was at the very beginning of the season so that the whole area looked deserted and Hotel Mara seemed to be the only hotel being open at this time. The hotel is situated between the railway and the sea. The trains are well audible even though... More

Large rooms that were clean - our room had a large balcony that provided some ocean view. Hotel staff are very friendly and very helpful. The restaurant is 'okay' - nothing exceptional in any way, but their breakfast provided a bit more variety than most other hotels we stayed at during our Italy trip. The food there may be 'okay'...

I stayed at this hotel just outside Ortona in September. You could tell it was after the "busy season" as they were starting to clear things away for the winter. Room was very clean and well-appointed, minus the tube TV ;-) The view of the beach from my 3rd floor room was utterly spectacular. Only complaint was the hotel didn't... More

My husband and I stayed here while visiting Canadian battle sites in the area. The room we had overlooked the ocean and was immaculate. The service was great with very helpful staff not only recommending a restaurant for dinner, but making the reservation and ensuring a wonderful evening. A great find!

This beachside hotel is a bit out of anything that can be considered a city, but is in a wonderful spot on the sea. Rooms are regular looking but most have great views. There are two buildings side by side.

I traveled to Hotel Mara with my husband who was attending a conference at the hotel. Needless to say, I was on my own quite a bit and had plenty of time to explore the hotel and take advantage of the amenities. The beach area is unbelieveably gorgeous with soft white sand. This was quite a surprise from the traditional... More

We were visiting the family "villa" on the eastern side of Italy and didn't have much information since it's not a normal American tourist area. I don't even recall how I found this hotel and didn't know what to expect. We were pleasently surprised. Although the rooms are simple, the hotel and it's staff are wonderful. You are right on...
