“40 Chicago Singles Stayed Here 3 Nights!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

I was the organizer for a group of 40 older adults (40s thru 60s) who stayed at Hotel Mary for 3 nights in September. Every single thing about Hotel Mary deserves 5 stars, beginning from the moment you enter and see 3 staff members at the front desk, in formal black dress, smiling broadly at you, and speaking perfect English. The rooms were spacious and clean, with refrigerators, marble-accented bathrooms with bidets, great hot showers, and excellent service. Their lovely large fine-dining restaurant offered the absolute best dinner entrees of anywhere we dined throughout Sicily and Italy, including pizzas about 3 feet long and excellent house wines, all at amazingly great prices! Our morning breakfast buffet was about 70% larger and more varied than anyplace else we stayed. The hotel has not one but TWO elevators/lifts (what a relief with a group our size!) But the absolute kicker about Hotel Mary, the pinnacle that cannot be beat, is the VIEW! For only $20 extra (TOTAL, for all THREE nights), we scored balcony rooms with a view of the sea (and mountains) that was so breathtaking it is difficult to express. The sunsets were beyond gorgeous! My dream someday is to return to Vico Equense and stay at Hotel Mary for a month or more! They get 10 out of 5 stars in my book! :-)

Room Tip: Pay a small amount extra for the seaview room...it's worth ten times the price!

We (2 mature couples) stayed in this Hotel Mary for 6 nights. The service from the front desk was superb, They were excellent with their directions and helpful with suggestions that saved us a lot of time and money. The food was tasteful! The village is within walking distance and has shops and other places to eat. The hotel is not far from the train station give an opportunity to make trips by train to Sorrento, Pompeii , Ercolano and Napoli. We e hope to return!

I had a small sea view room. It had a pleasant feel although the decorations was rather spartan. The service from the front desk was supurb. They made several trips down to help with the room safe, air conditioning unit, and helping with the general ineptness of the guest (me). They were excellent with their directions and helpful with suggestions.

The Hotel Mary, located in Vico Equense, is a beautifully located property with a wonderful view of the Naples coastline. Our group of 40 were at this property for 4 days / 3 nights. The food served at the hotel was absolutely delicious and our group enjoyed eating both group dinners and breakfasts on the terrace that also boasts a beautiful view. I highly recommend a Seaview Room. It was nice to be able to sit out on our room balcony and enjoy the beautiful sunset every evening while sipping some Italian wine. Sitting out each morning while waking up was also a delight.

Our room (310) was spacious with plenty of room in the bathroom - one of the few places we stayed during our Italian trip where you actually had a full-sized shower.

The only disappoint was that the hot tub was not working. After touring Naples and surrounding areas all day, it would have been nice to be able to soak a few of the aches away.

Room Tip: Definitely choose a Seaview Room for a beautiful view each day - both morning and evening.

The staff was extremely friendly and spoke English and French well. The view is breathtaking, especially at sunset...very romantic. The food at Hotel Mary was superb! The village is within walking distance and has shops and other places to eat.
We will return, we hope!

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the sea. The rooms facing the front can be a bit noisy due to the traffic. W...

I cant offer any review of any significant value as to the restaurant as i only ate there on two occasions, these meals i found o.k. but not good value for money. Maybe we have become used to larger portions for a more competitive prices. the breakfast as already stated in other reviews had lots of variety however sometimes needed topping up up a little quicker especially after the coach parties had been in, and maybe could use a slight change for the guest that stay longer.
please weed around the pool it doesn't take long the guy who cleans the pools must walk on them to do his job. having said all that the views from room and balcony which overlooked the harbour are lovely. my room cleaned daily was of a high standard with a free safe and TV.and small fridge, no English stations. The guy who booked me in at reception was really nice and had a big smile and greeting for me on departure and return.The head waiter and i didn't hit it off seemed a little aloof. the beach is a small area shared with others and is one hell of a walk down and then back up. Its a little noisy with traffic horns going and resounding around the valley and the coach party suitcases coming and going and doors opening and closing early am.this is not the hotels fault and as i was rising early was not a problem. the air con in my room was a little light on the power side but the ceiling fan was immense and a real benefit. overall an average accommodation clean and handily placed for trips out.

Room Tip: well i was in room 309 as a single occupant it was more than big enough although if you where a pers...

Having read previous reviews we were expecting a high level of service. Unfortunately at the time of our visit this did not happen. Made to feel, that as part of a coach trip, that we were not as valued as their paying customers in the restuarant at night. The hotel is very dated and needs some money spending on it. Not really impressed with the gentleman who let his dogs out for their toilet run morning and evening by the pool!
