“Clean, quiet, family oriented good value for money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

To be honest, according to European standards this is not a resort. Another downside is that without your own transport the hotel is rather in the middle of nowhere.

That being said, the hotel is not exactly “at” the lake but the lake is within view and a very short (less than 5 minutes) walking distance. The lake does not offer wide sandy beaches, but it is a safe and clean place to swim and offers a lot of local charm (anything between small fishing boats and Armenian families). It is also easy to find a taxi at the nearby (also 5 minute walking distance) hospital.

And there is a lot to like at Maria Resort. The rooms are spacious and impeccably clean and the large and clean (albeit a tad cold) pool is fantastic. If you are looking for tranquility and/or a family oriented hotel you will get good value for money.

In spite of the language problems (I speak no Armenian and just a few words Russian) the staff would go out of their way to help or accomodate me, even to the extent of driving me to the bus station themselves when my taxi did not show up.

I had a lovely time at this place.

It's like a hospital building renovated for something to be called "hotel".
Far from the lake (walking distance). Empty building, sad hospital-like rooms, no reception, just a woman with keys in her room, very empty territory. No double rooms....just tweens...


We made a reservation on the phone, by the pictures online. We've more been attracted by the price. 20000 AMD. The moment we reached there....it was an aweful place to spend a weekend...we've started calling different hotels to find a free place. Good we game along to BLUE SEVAN hotel, where we spent a wonderful weekend.
I will post my review and pictures of Blue Sevan. We really enjoyed it...maybe because of seeing this terrible place first. Anyway, just exclude even idea of reserving this "resort".

Room Tip: NEVER if you are in your mind

Management-MR, Manager at Maria Resort, responded to this review, July 26, 2012
Thank you for taking your time to review our hotel. We constantly work on improving our resort and your feedback is valuable to us. Our mission is to offer high quality hotel accommodations and services at affordable prices. We are sorry that you came in when the resort was not very busy, and that you did not like it. But we are glad that you found a place corresponding to your needs.
Maria Resort is a newly opened family oriented resort and we have guests of all ages. Younger people like Maria Resort very much too for our beach volleyball and football fields, the gorgeous swimming pool, for the possibility to play billiards and table-tennis, and for the well equipped karaoke-bar in the cozy restaurant. And of course the beautiful Lake Sevan is just in a couple of minutes walk away from the resort.
