Just returned from a a 7 night stay at the villa Maria with my wife.
We arrived just after lunch after a very early start, we were told our room was ready!! I had booked the annex room, and it is separate from the main hotel, we had to carry our cases up 4 flights of stairs, not good after a long journey. When we entered the room I was more than disappointed, within seconds I told the receptionist I was refusing to stay there, the room was old, tired, dirty walls, poor furniture and a metal shutter for a curtain! The receptionist said it was just as the pictures......it wasn't!
We carried our cases back to reception and asked for another room, we were then told it would be 200+ euros extra!! I stuck to my guns as the annex room was not as advertised. Needless to say it was sorted quickly.
The new room in the main building was a lot better, even so it was still dated, but clean.
Everything in this hotel is extra -
- WIFI in the room.
- safety deposit box
- towels for the pool
- drinks at the pool bar are very expensive, and chargeable to the room only!
- city tax of 1 euro each per night is chargeable in cash at the end of the stay.
- mini bar in the room is overpriced
Other than that, the breakfast is very good although we were rushed when we went for a late breakfast.
The pool area is pretty good and they have made the best of what space they have, the sunbeds are comfy (even without a towel)
The staff are very friendly and try to help you as much as possible.
Regardless of everything above we had a great holiday in sorrento and will definitely will be back next year!
This hotel could be a lot better with a few little changes, other than the annex rooms!
