Booked a room last minute for almost nothing and happily accepted the upgrade we received when we checked in. Room nice with a beautiful view. Reception staff cordial and helpful. Dinner in the restaurant OK, not fantastic. I am writing this review while we WAIT for the server to clear our plates and offer us dessert (15 minutes so far..)... More

It was late in the evening. My husband went to ask the price for a room, any room, with sea view or not. Somebody went to look for the receptionist...it was the very same person who was watching TV when my husband stepped in. Do you have a room and what's the price ? The answer was 70 euro per... More

This hotel is situated right on the beach and many rooms have great views of the sea and the dramatic coastline. Our room was smallish but well fitted with plenty of storage. Bathroom was a bit dated, the shower was quite tiny but it was clean and adequate. It is a bit away from anything else so we ate in... More

Spent 2 nights in July. Hotel was clean, staff was friendly, and food was good. They charge 20 euros per day for the lounge chairs on the beach. Just use the ones by the pool, those are free! Beach is steps away. Rocky, but beautiful water. I stayed with my husband, niece, and children ages 15 and 21, and they... More

Rooms great with small but adequate balcony, comfy beds and aircon, great evening meal incuded in our price but also choice of a la carte if we had wanted it. Some staff spoke a little... More

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The hotel must have been built ages ago, as it looks outdated, both outside and inside.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
