Like a previous reviewer, we were initially discouraged by the polytunnels, but the hotel itself was wonderful. Great food, lovely room, wonderful staff (everybody; including the gardener who showed us his plants and shared ripe fruit from the trees) but a special mention for Salvatore, who is a delightful maitre d'. We stayed a week and enjoyed every moment. You need a car, of course, but there are lots of things to do in the area, including Baraque towns to walk round, beaches, nature reserves, wonderful landscapes, etc. We are already planning our return next spring.

Room Tip: all the rooms looked good and the hotel is isolated from any noise sources.

When we approached the hotel we rather wondered what we'd booked. Its surrounded by a working farm with plastic tunnels for growing. However when you get there its amazing. There are lovely views, the hotel itself is beautiful, the staff are very caring, and the food is really really good - definitely have dinner here, its fantastic food and good value. The wine is from the farm and was really good.
its a relaxing place, there are local fishing villages with very good restaurants. We went in early April with the sun out and clear roads. the only disadvantage was that the towns and villages were extremely quite.it made parking easy, but it meant we were in deserted restaurants.
I was with my 14 year old son and my elderly parents and the hotel was lovely for all of us.

Room Tip: The stairs are very steep and wide so not brilliant for elderly people, so get in early for ground f...

Torre Marabino purrs like a well honed machine. It seems like a place with ambition to be the best, it is doing well and so in turn it has great self esteem. For a start the staff are young, cool, highly professional and could have been lifted from a Park Lane hotel. They all get on well and so there is a friendly chemistry between them and us. The grounds and building are lovingly tended, the rooms are spick and span, the Wi Fi is free and it actually works for decent periods of time. The food was the highlight for me. Lovely Salvatore, the Maitre D' was a warm and funny host, he recommended great wines. We were embarrassed to arrive late one night at ten pm, with three pre teen children in tow, they had kept the kitchen open for us and Salvatore immediatly brought the girls the most delicious home made pasta so they could go to bed at long last. Then they brought us a delightful three course supper. Breakfasts too were a lovely surprise, with the bountiful supply of freshly baked cakes and perfectly ripe fruit. We were made to feel completely welcome. Nothing was too much trouble for them, for example beach towels were provided for days out. We were sad to go and were pleasantly surprised by the final bill. it was extremely reasonable. There may be agriturismos in more isolated rural settings and ones with super trendy rooms, but Torre Marabino is so professionally run, it is a total joy to stay there.

We spent a night here and thorughly enjoyed the food and wine. Limited choice but excellent quality. Fantastic service, Salvatore is a true professional. We had a great stay and would go back again ( the children were also well taken care of, with the chef preparing them specials meals). Their biological honey, jams and olive oil are fabulous!

We had a very good time in Torre Marabino, with friends. Rooms are spacious, comfortable.
The food was usually very good, so we stayed in most days. it depended a bit on the cook of the day en how many other guests were present. Choice of wines was very nice. Lovely gardens en very clean and quiet pool. Breakfast very nice, with daily fresh homemade cakes. Lots of space to enjoy the lovely weather, garden, terrace. Lots of stars at night! Peace and quiet but still lots to be seen in the surroundings.

Before our visit to Torre Marabino for a week in August this year, we read numerous Trip Advisor reviews and wondered whether it really could be as good as the reports suggested.

The answer is a resounding: yes!

A place this good has to be well managed; lovely Simone and Francesco have covered all the bases and were available at all times to assist guests or just to say "hello".

This dedication and and excellence permeated through the staff: the effervescent and hugely enjoyable, Salvatore, charming Martina and superb morning coffee from lovely Margherita.

I was so inspired by the atmosphere that I painted a couple of watercolours and I've sent the images to our friends there - for that is how we feel about the staff.

We can't wait to return.

Peter

Room Tip: We stayed in the room with a small kitchen - it was great
