We loved this place and suited our needs well. It sits at top of town with great views and it's super to stretch the legs to and from the bustling Ravello below. That is the charm of this place - it feels like a sanctuary ! Calm, great coast views, excellent restaurant, great breakfast choice, charming staff team, interesting historic... More

Lovely hotel with fantastic views. Difficult to access if you have mobility issues, although the very helpful staff will get your luggage up from the main square in Ravello, which is as far as you can get in a car/taxi. Breakfast was fine, although the staff were slow to refill coffee and replenish the buffet. The a la carte lunch... More

We really wanted to fall in love with this hotel but it didn't quite hit the mark. After spending hours researching where to stay in Ravello we were excitedly anticipating what we hoped would be a highlight of our holiday but for a property of this standard we left feeling a little disappointed. When we arrived a very helpful valet... More

Many thanks for the kind words about the kindness and the professionalism of our staff and the beautiful location. We are very sorry for the inconvenience you had at our breakfast. On the morning you described, we had a technical problem in our kitchen that caused some delays at the service. Our staff, as you correctly noticed and described, did... More

This is a beautiful place. The setting for dinner is awe inspiring and the head water and senior staff including receptionists and breakfast staff very good. The rest of the staff let down the customer service unfortunately, but maybe that was coming from The Grand Hotel Capodimonte where service is exceptional.

Many thanks for your kind feedback and the nice words spent for our staff - although we did not understand who was the "rest of the staff" that let down the customer service. We are very sorry if you got this bad impression and we really hope we will have a next occasion to leave you the best good memory! More

Many thanks for your kind review! if you only asked for a different bed, we could have satisfied your request by switching you into another room or providing you with a different mattress. The comfy of the bed is very personal and it is pretty impossible to fix which is the "standard" to make all the clients happy (someone would... More

We stayed at this lovely location for the last part of our visit to Italy. It is a beautiful villa (our rooms were spacious, clean, and very elegant--large bathroom with whirlpool tub and good shower). The outdoor restaurant is spectacular with a wonderful view of the surrounding mountain towns and the ocean. All in the most lovely garden with pergolas... More

This place was the only one on our month long trip that we would not bother to return to. The negatives- -The rooms are very dated and worn out, ours also had a really bad musty smell. They are definitely overpriced for what you get (we had a junior suite). I can send pics if anyone wants to see how... More

Had an excellent vacation in ravello staying 4 nights at villa Maria. Staff was helpful and rooms were clean. Had a great view and they went out of their way to be helpful in every way possible.

Good bed. Hotel had heat which was needed in early May. Breakfast was good but would have liked to see more fruit. Servers were so-so. It felt like we were imposing on them if we got there at the time they were supposed to be serving breakfast. Serving table not completely ready. Tea water or coffee would come when they... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Situated in the historic centre between the Clarisse nunnery and S. Francis Convent, in a restful aristocratic area so much as to be chosen, the only hotel in the area, by the French guide-book "Relais du Silence" as an oasis of peace and by the Italian "Charme e Relax" as Ravello's pearl. Villa Maria assures his guests in addition to maximum tranquillity also the most services including the parking of nearby Hotel Giordano (of the same property) where it is possible to park for free the car and take advantage of free luggage handling and of the swimming pool. Rich and interesting is the history of this villa which was roman noble Marquis de Cinque family's manor, an history which blends with Ravello's and the Amalfi Coast's. The structure, while preserving the elegant forms of a lordly mansion, in the years has undergone noteworthy redecorations which have fashioned its actual splendour. ... more   less
