My husband and I have just returned from a holiday in Maiori staying at the Santa Tecla apartments. Whilst these apartments are in a good location they are nestled between residential apartment blocks 2 streets back from the main promenade. Our apartment was large, clean, bright and airy with adequate bathroom and kitchen facilities. Due to the position only 1/3rd of the pool area gets the sun in the morning, after 2pm it is all in the shade. This wasn't a problem for us as we were hardly there. However, guests are also able to use the roof terrace pool at the Panorama Hotel which is small but absolutely lovely, and as the beach is only a hop away it is unlikely to be a problem for hardened sun worshippers! Maoiri itself is beautiful and the villages of Amalfi and Ravello close by are stunning too - just a short 20 & 30 minute bus journey at most and well worth a visit. Vesuvius and Pompeii are also very worth while excursions.
My only criticism of these apartments is that the walls are very thin. Unfortunately there was lots of noise from our neighbours on both sides and above us. As we like to take things at a leisurely pace when we're on holiday we were disappointed to be woken at 6.30-7.30am by our neighbours whom we could hear making breakfast, banging pots and pans and cupboard doors most mornings. We also found the mattresses to be quite hard and the neighbouring toilet flushes rather loud. We won't be returning to these apartments but if you like to be out and about at the crack of dawn and don't mind a firm bed then these apartments are definitely worth a try.
I would've given a rating of 4/5 but because we were affected by the noise/thin walls I have deducted 1 point.
We will however return to Maoiri and the surrounding area - it's absolutely stunning!
