We just love this hotel!! We have just booked to visit again in summer 2014, having visited every year for the last 10 years. The hotel is in an ideal location looking across the road and the wide promenade to its own beach and over the Bay of Salerno, with views up to the beautiful Ravello and along the coast to Salerno and beyond.
Maiori is a pleasant town, smaller, quieter and less touristy than Amalfi and is an ideal location to explore the Amalfi Coast and other places of interest (Pompeii, Herculaneum, Vesuvius, Paestum, Capri, etc) – or just to stay local to chill and relax.
The hotel is a pleasant looking building. You arrive at Reception in a large, airy, pleasantly furnished entrance hall. (Free Wifi is available in this area too.) Air-con keeps the hotel nice and cool. Rooms are on four floors which are all served by lifts and stairs. We feel it is worth paying the extra for one of the sea view rooms, which are large and spacious, with king size bed, spare bed, chairs and table, large wardrobe, hairdryer, TV, balcony, also with chairs and table, and there is also a good size bathroom (some with walk in shower and some with bath and shower over). Bedding and towels are changed every day and rooms are kept spotlessly clean – as is the whole hotel. The hotel has a wonderful front patio overlooking the promenade and the bay. It is so pleasant to sit and relax here under the canopy if you prefer the shade, or in the sun, at any time of the day or evening. In the summer months, the hotel provides evening entertainment on the patio, usually once or twice a week.
Our half board arrangement enables us to take the buffet breakfast (a good spread, including a choice of fruit juices, water, cereals, fruit, bread, croissants, meats, cheese and spreads, as well as cooked breakfast, on request (tea and coffee is served to your table) and we can opt for lunch or evening meal, both of which have a new daily menu (which is displayed early each morning) offering a good variety of choices of starter and main courses, all with waiter service. Fruit, ice cream or sweet of the day are offered as dessert.
Lunch, drinks and snacks may be ordered from the patio or pool throughout the day and can be charged to your room account. A mini-market is very close to the hotel and other shops, supermarkets, bars, cafes and restaurants are a short walk away. Buses to Salerno, Naples and local resorts stop close to the hotel (don’t forget to purchase your bus ticket in advance, with the exception of the Red Bus).
The hotel also boasts a very large swimming pool which also looks across to the seafront (and a small children’s pool) which is immaculately clean, with a good number of sun beds and umbrellas. Beach/pool towels are available free of charge for guests to use, on request.
Saving the best till last, the hotel’s biggest asset is its staff. Without exception, the staff are so friendly, cheerful and helpful. Francesca and her team front of house, Giovanni and his colleagues in the bar, Rafael and his team of waiting and catering staff, not forgetting Peppe and his pool and all the cleaning and maintenance staff – all only too happy just to greet you or to help. The overall feel is of a cosy, friendly, family-run hotel, with the personal touch.
There are many guests who return each year, who now are friends, and we cannot think of another hotel in Maiori where we would rather stay (we can’t all be wrong!) which is why we are returning again in July. Can’t wait!!!
