The hotel feels a bit like it's out of the 60's or so. I mean that as a compliment. We've stayed in any number of family-run hotels and pensioni in Italy over the years, and Villa Maria ranks high among them for character, comfort, and idiosyncratic identity. Even to the extent of a largely middle-class British clientele who know value... More

WE stayed in a suite that was spacious with a huge balcony that overlooked several of the smaller neighboring towns. Be advised that you can not drive directly to the hotel which is on a charming small lane. when we made reservation we were told to park at their sister hotel and call. A porter came within 5 minutes of... More

It was a very wet day when we arrived at Ravello. The villa is a tranquil retreat set on the hills away from the busy and noisy towns directly on the Amalfi coast. The receptionist could have been more friendly. We were told we were upgraded but realized at a later stage that only a few rooms were used by... More

Really good hotels with great beds, great food and a helpful staff. I loved the sound track playing outside in the court yard. The view from the rooms and dining area were awesome. The staff was professional. Great books filed with pictures of movie stars.

This is a really lovely hotel with very good staff. Fantastic location and would go back as it's one of the best in Ravello. We ate there one night but a bit disappointed with a fairly unadventurous menu, standard fare and not great cooking. My fillet steak was very good but my wife's fish was over cooked. When I asked...

My husband and I spent four nights in this wonderful hotel. When we walked into the restaurant with those beautiful views, I cried. The food was excellent. We had lunch and dinner, and of course the breakfasts were included. Simple, but enough of a selection to keep it interesting. Our room was huge. I was surprised with the large terrace!... More

My wife and I had a lovely time one afternoon in Ravello with the Villa Maria Cooking school. The staff was attentive and professional while arranging the course and when we arrived we found a very intimate setting and made several new friends. The organic garden is beautiful and picturesque, the kitchen is clean and Vincenzo is very energetic. The... More

I do not dispute the excellent reviews offered by other readers with respect to the restaurant, the view and the hotel overall. However there is a major problem with misleading advertising on Trip Advisor and Hotels.com with this hotel. Very clearly, a photo of a swimming pool is displayed ( and on Trip Advisor it is under the heading, "courtesy... More

We are very surprised to read such a review, for different reasons. On tripadvisor: the picture of the swimming pool is on the webpage, but it is indicated in the description that it is situated at the sister Hotel Giordano, 5 minutes walking distance. On Hotel.com: as the clients correctly stated, we had informed several times to remove the picture... More

The food on the terrace restaurant is amazing and many guest come from a number of the surrounding 5 star hotels. Lunch with amazing views. Only downside is a lack of pool. Beautiful internal decorations particularly the dining room. Breakfast fabulous.

I stayed at Villa Maria for a week in ealry October. I had done research for several months prior to leaving Boston to find the perfect hotel for my time in Ravello. WOW...was it perfect!
