Hotel Gabbiano is located in a very quiet cove near Maratea Italy. It's like a grand old dame; a bit fadded and dated but very well run and in a wonderful location. It's right by the sea and has it's own beach. It's located next to a public beach filled with sun beds. the Gabbiano seems like a family hotel.... More

Book a table with a vista of the sea for 7.30. You will have the place to yourself for half an hour and get wonderful food and attentive service. Have small notes or change for the tip - they can't add it to the bill. A special experience watching the sun go down. Don't miss the tartufo regionale. It is... More

The hotel must have been built ages ago, as it looks outdated, both outside and inside. We spent one night in the beginning of June and had a room with seaview, but as there is no terasse or balcony, we couldn't really enjoy the view. The breakfast was quite poor, but the staff was friendly and helpful. It was ok... More

as for the obvious positive sides the hotel is beautifully located, its private beach just exactly 5 stairs and 10 meters from the hotel lobby is great with all the facilities you could need.The restaurant has huge windows all around so it's not possible not to see the sea all the time. Food is really nice i think i could... More

This may have been our favorite lodging on our 15 day trip in SW Italy and Sicily in October, 2014. My wife and I would like to return and use it as a base to explore that region. We had a superior room which, although small, was adequate, clean and looked out on the Tyrhennian Sea, with a small balcony.... More

We were taking a long trip in Italy and my husband booked a stay at this hotel for us to have a beach break, the setting is very good but the hotel is poor, it maybe because we stayed in mid september. We booked a "superior room" which was not, we are not fussy people but the food was awful,... More

Il Gabbiano is set directly on the beach at Acquafredda near Maratea. As a lover of 5 star properties, and an ex-hotelier myself, I was left in awe of how well this property is run. Extremely clean, a Restaurant with the freshest food, and service that was difficult to fault. Truly a surprise and a place I can thoroughly recommend.... More

This place is like Amalfi - minus the tourists, the buses and the hustle and bustle! Once you have made your way here, either by train or along the precipitous mountain road, you are here to stay! Luckily the facilites at the Hotel, or further along the coast - grouped under the name of Maratea - make this none too... More
