The grounds and eating area were breathtaking. Every request we made was done with kindness and patience (setting our GPS for exploring the beautiful Abruzzi region, restaurant recommendations and daily ice/bucket.The Villa Maria provided an almost hourly shuttle service to the beach and had identified lounge chairs and umbrellas for their guests. Beach was gorgeous. The entire team was great... More

Nice , clean but modest rooms, the sea facing rooms, the terrace and SPA have a great view. The staff is friendly. Food is so-so (even breakfast is very basic) but there are plenty of nicer options to eat within 10-20 minutes walk from the hotel (186 on the beach & Le Lampere on the highway). Beach is a direct...

This was an unplanned stop on our improvised road trip so we had no expectations. We stayed for only two days and it all started with us getting lost in our initial efforts to find the hotel. After cursing our GPS enough we somehow found our way to Villa Maria. The hotel was really nice and our room had good... More

We were having off site meetings and really enjoyed the scenery here. The rooms were not the best. Could hear everything through the walls. Several of the group mentioned this. The wait staff at the restraunt and during the breaks was really great and I appreciated there help.

Pleasant hotel, just a little way from Pescara, a little tired and dated but clean and tidy. Comfortable firm bed. Helpful staff. Rooms on the small side but adequate. Not really sure why the top wardrobe had a hanging rail at approx. 3m height! Lovely swimming pool and gardens. Spa nice too. Breakfasts were disappointing, somewhat basic with little choice....

Staff are excellent! Cannot fault service. Spa is fantastic and very reasonably priced. Grounds are well kept and peaceful. HOWEVER, basic room is less than 2*. We upgraded to suite, which while more spacious, the fabrics on the sofas and cushions was beyond disgusting!! The bed was solid, I have an actual bruised hip from the mattress! When we return...
