“Tranquil oasis outside Torre del Greco”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2014

We had a lovely stay in this hotel, which is well placed for visiting Pompeii and Herculaneum. The rooms are comfortable and quiet with sunny balconies (the hair driers are terrible,though!!.) The public areas are lovely but the rooms are in need of a little updating ( a work in progress maybe??) The views of Vesuvius and also of the sea are magnificent. We enjoyed the food in the restaurant each night at the end of a hectic day's sightseeing. Service was friendly and efficient and the food very enjoyable. There was enough variety at the breakfast buffet - great cake too. We always relaxed by the quiet pool in the late afternoon, which was pleasant.
My husband managed to leave his I-pod and all our cables behind when we left! We phoned and they had been found by our lovely chambermaid so we were able to collect them a few days later. Brilliant! Well done Hotel Marad( and thanks to our chambermaid)! A great stay!

Room Tip: The rooms at the front have beautiful views.

We arrived at this hotel after a 9 hour drive from Austria and the first impression was very good. The layout and the condition of the hotel are perfect.

The rooms are small but are modern and clean. The TV was only Italian (however, there was a trick, if you start at channel 1 and roll backwards you will find ARD (german) channel on position 4). Internet was free and it worked OK

I thought breakfast was brilliant – the offer was small (continental) but the coffee was good and we were able to sit outside and enjoy the weather.

The pool was small but I also enjoyed a couple of hours there one afternoon.

Value for money was also very good

The reason why I didn’t give this place 4 stars was the reception - unfriendly (I hate it when they don’t smile), inefficient (did they not understand or did they not care?) and were not in a position to inform about local amenities

We stayed in this hotel to be out of noisy Naples and to have a base for being close to the area (Napoli, Pompeii, Ercolano, Sorrento etc)
I wouldn't call it a 4* hotel, anyhow it is very friendly and located in a great place. The view is magnificient (you can see bay of Napoli and mount Vesuvio as well); restaurant and the food is gorgeous, personell is courteous and polite (some with poor English though). The rooms and all locations are clean, breakfast was adequate, service was excellent.
If you're not with a car but with train (circumvesuiviana) it's advisable to print out your route from the station to the hotel before arrival - it can be very helpful. Since the hotel is almost on the top of the hill you need to walk a lot uphill, which to be honest it's not so fun when you have lots of baggages.
Torre del Greco itself it's not worth visiting or spending more time than necessary, anyhow it is situated in a good places so every attraction of the area can be easily accessed from here.
Not so many restaurants in the neighborhood (= none), it's advisable you eat at hotel's restaurant or at the place you visited that day (there are many many great pizzeria's and restaurants in Pompeii or Sorrento, and Napoli of course). There's a nice little grocery store close to Marad, highly recommended.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms with balcony in order to have a gorgeous view to Vesuvio and/or the bay of Napoli.

We stayed at this nice hotel to be out of Naples and to have a base for seeing the area. Hotel is clean; beautiful view if you have a room above the second floor like we did to see the gulf of Naples and the mountain. The breakfast was nice each morning and service was excellent! The price was good compared to others I looked at. At the bottom of the hill from the motel is a grocery store with fresh fruit , vegetables and etc. we bought some snacks and water there. Across the street from it is a gelato and pastry shop. Had a nice cappuccino there. The area is kind of grungy but most of the area around Naples is, but we walked from the hotel here and I felt at ease. I would return to this hotel because it was very relaxing after the hustle of Rome we had earlier in the week and to enjoy a drink in the garden or on the rooftop terrace.

Overall a good hotel in a quiet location. There was four of us sharing a room which could have been a bit bigger but had a good balcony area and very efficient air conditioning. The beds were very comfortable. The breakfast was perfectly adequate with fresh fruit and a choice of mainly cold foods with pastries. The pool area was good with plenty of available sunbeds but the best feature was the lovely roof terrace where you could get a drink in the evening and watch the amazing view and sunsets. It was more difficult to get a drink during the day but when the waiters were working they were very helpful.

The area of Torre del Greco is fairly quiet but not very attractive (dirty and scruffy) and we would probably not return there. There is only really one restaurant within walking distance from the hotel and not much in the way of shops. However it is a good base to climb Versuvius (which is a must!) and to visit Pompeii etc. Overall I would recommend the hotel but not the area!

Stayed here at the Marad for 5 nights in July. Check-in was fine but check-in staff need to learn to smile! 2 rooms were booked - one for my husband, son and I and one for my mother-in-law and her son. Views to both Vesuvius and the sea from the balcony. Both rooms were OK but need updating, Bathrooms also not brilliant - smallish and a bit musty. Bedding was good and the beds and pillows were comfortable. Internet only worked every now and then in the room - better to go to reception area. No restaurants in the area (area was a bit of shock)! but the hotel served a really good evening meal with 4 choices for main course - fish included. Prices were reasonable. There is also a small icecream palour and grocery shop about 200 metres from the hotel. This was great for buying rolls, cheese and meats for a lunchtime snack on the balcony after climbing Vesuvius in the morning! Rooftop bar (Sky Bar) was the highlight for us with views to Vesuvius and Capri. Bar staff were very good and friendly - great nibbles served with the cocktails! The swimming pool is set underneath large pine trees and when the wind blows, loads of pine needles float into the pool. Staff were not too hot on fishing them out and if we wanted a swim we had to remove the needles first. This also made the pool surround a little unpleasant to walk on bearfoot. To conclude, this is a good little hotel if you are visiting Vesuvius, Pompeii and all the other sights.

Room Tip: Go for a room with sea and Vesuvius view, but ask for one NOT underneath the rooftop bar - lots of g...

Good size room, bathroom ok, chose the rooms with balcony and views (Vesuvius and sea). Free parking, 10 min walk from the station. Central situation to visit Pompeï, Ercolanum, Vesuvius, Napels. Continental breakfast

Room Tip: Chose the rooms with views (vesuvius & sea) and balcony
