“The view can't be beat!”
Reviewed June 24, 2012

My husband and I stayed here from June 2 to June 9th. We had a superior room on the 6th floor. The view from our balcony was stunning, the Norman tower on the one side and the beach of Maiori and the towns along the road to Amalfi on the other side. The rooms were large and spacious and towels were changed daily. (However, the towels are the tablecloth type of towels found in Europe, rather than fluffy towels that North Americans are used to). The bed was a king size (or 2 twins pushed together), but was not very comfortable (but not awful) and neither were the pillows. There was a mini-fridge in the room that you could store cheese, beer, water, etc. The AC didn't work the first couple of days, but then it was fixed and needed as the week got progressively hotter.
The hotel beach is now gone and as other reviewers have said you need to pay at the desk to use the beach down the road.
Since the hotel is out of town a bit, it was super quiet, I would say one of the quietest places we have ever stayed. The bar was never busy when we were there, which also made it easier to sleep. Our room was very near to the bar so we were often able to get wi-fi in our room and if not, we went to the bar, where drinks were super cheap. Even with the weddings on the weekends, it was not noisy.
We didn't eat in the hotel except for breakfast. We thought breakfast was very good, we had our morning capuccinos with a choice of fresh croissants, fruit, yogurt, eggs or cereal. You had to be there early for bacon.
We agree with the other reviewers that the desk staff were not super helpful. We didn't even know that the shuttle bus was available for guests.
If you plan to take the Sita bus, the stop is just up the hill across from the Torre Normana (going both ways). The Sita bus runs fairly frequently, pick up a schedule at the Tourist Office. It is cheap...2.40 Euro (for 45 minutes) and 7.20 for a 24 hour pass. However, it is often full, which means you need to stand which can be an issue on the winding roads. You certainly need to hold on while it is moving. We recommend taking the open top bus whenever you can, it is much more pleasant. 3 euros for one way, 10 euros for the day.
We also recommend taking the ferries whenever you can. Unfortunately, the ferries were not running from Maiori when we were there, but we took the ferry from Amalfi to Capri and Amalfi to Positano.
Ravello is delightful, we went there twice. It is wonderful to sit in one of the restaurants with a glass of wine looking at the stunning view.
We ate at the Torre Normana, where service was amazing but the food and wine were ridiculously overpriced. We had a much better meal in Mammatos, on the main road in Amalfi, where the food was excellent and much cheaper and the proprietor gave us a complimentary tast of limoncello after our meal. We ate there on our last night, otherwise, would have eaten there again.
There is not a lot to do in Maiori, except for the beach. The promenade along the beach is very long and very nice for strolling (no hills), especially in the evenings. However, it is a nice base to make day trips to the surrounding towns like Minori, Amalfi, Positano and Capri. (For souvenirs, the cheapest place to buy was in Capri). We went to Salerno which was a disappointment, there is not much to do there.
Parking is pretty much non-existent at the hotel, so be prepared. Driving would also be an issue on the winding roads.

We stayed a week here and overall I would say that we were pleased with the spot even if there were some short comings that we had to figure out ourselves.

The good: The view! From your balcony or from the dinning patio on the 8th floor, the view of the Maiori beach is fantastic. Our room was on the 6th floor, a double room with terrasse and sea view. The shower was a closed off shower at least, not the odd half wall that ends up making a disaster everywhere when you use it. The view and the size of our balcony made it a very nice place to relax with a glass of wine before dinner. We only had breakfast so i can't say anything about the food. Breakfast was basic continental but excellent. Free parking with a valet was very convenient because you're basically on the SS163. A short walk down to the beach (about 5minutes), you have the option of public beach or private. Public, you bring whatever you need. Private you get an umbrella and chairs for 15 euros a day. We took the private, especially since the beach is a rocky one so a chair is really nice.

The not so good: We found information pretty lacking. We had to ask for everything that is normally just given to you. When is breakfast? Where is it held? Where is the beach? Where do we pay for it? (you pay for the beach at the hotel btw). We had no booklet in our room explaining any of this and the front desk didn't seem to want to give out information, it's as if we were supposed to know all this stuff. We wished there would have been a booklet in the room with all the standard information and a hotel provides, like room service menu and all that. Not speaking italian, we tried to keep our contact with the staff short and only when necessary because it's not easy for them either. One day at the front desk we waited for help while the clerk was taking care of something on the computer. I waited at the desk for her to finish what she was doing before bothering her and eventually after maybe 30 seconds she just looks up, shrugs her shoulders and gives me a look that pretty much said "What do you want?". All I could do was turn to my girlfriend and laugh at that, I've never seen that ever in my life.

But to be fair, we found hotel service pretty sub standard in Rome as well so maybe it's just a cultural difference, but you should know what to expect.

As for Maiori, it was a hit for us. A fantastic place to base out of since we had a car, the food in the town was great and the least favourite meal was the most expensive in the Torre Normanne, but we knew going in that we were paying for the view and not the quality of the food. Maiori has a great beach to swim, it's very family oriented, has all the services you may want. The only thing is since the beach is great for swimming, it's a less active boating destination. You can take a boat out to Capri but you don't get as many boating excursion options as saw Amalfi or Positano. I would highly recommend Maiori as a home base camp. If you feel lazy, you can hit the beach and not swim in boat exhaust. The other beaches seemed crowded and less pretty.

Oh, like I said the beach is a rocky one (they all are on the coast) so if you have tender feet like we do, bring a cheap pair of sandals or water shoes or whatever. it was excrutiating to get out of the water! most of the other people didn't seem to mind it but it bothered us a lot. We're too used to sand I guess.

Overal a very good hotel with excellent quality value restaurant. Service was good but hotel should provide a concierge service as information on local facilities and opening times was difficult to obtain. A shuttle bus would be helpful in order to avoid the short walk on the busy road to the town.No swimming pool or fitness facilities which I have cme to expect in a 4star rated hotel.

Room Tip: Basic rooms have small bathrooms. Choose rooms with sea view balconies or junior suites.

My partner and I have just returned from attending friends wedding in Maiori and primarily chose this hotel for its location opposite the wedding venue at the Norman Tower. I think this was an excellent choice as could not fault the hotel and the location is excellent, far better than the other hotels in Maiori. I booked the hotel independently, not through a tour operator. We had a superior room, which had a huge balcony with a wonderful view accross the bay and town. Our room was cleaned every day and all towels replaced with fresh. Yes, the road below is busy, but we were never disturbed by the traffic noise or from any of the weddings, as the rooms are well sound proofed. We also found the drinks in the hotel bar very reasonable, far cheaper than the bars in town, as a guide 3 brandys and 3 Moijo's were a total of €18.00. Compared to €32 for 4 beers in a bar in Capri !! The hotel also run a complimentary mini bus into the town centre and even took us into Minori a couple of times, which was welcome when did not want to walk as dressed up for an evening out. We did not eat in the hotel other than breakfasts and these were a typical continental style buffet which was more than adequate.

All the staff we found to be very friendly, courteous and helpful.

The only downside was there was no kettle or coffee/tea making facilities in the room.

I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for a seaview room with balcony

OK always start and finish on a positive.

We had a great week, the local food, people and views were fanastic. We stayed in a studio above the famous blind bend. First impression of the apartment was it was spacious and spotlessly clean. The view from the balcony beyond belief. The only downers, the bathroom was dated and the balcony tiny. Some road noise.

But get this we had to pay 30 euros for cleaning on arrival ( which we paid) and a 150 euros deposit for beakages ( which we didn't pay). Thomson had warned us two days before we left by email.

Our room wasn't cleaned once in the week, we had the same towels all week ( in 27 degrees) and had to beg for toilet paper.

When we challenged this with reception we were told this charge was to clear up after us when we left! I have never been a rock star and have definately never trashed a hotel room!

Reception best described as indifferent when briefly attended.

To be fair the local Thomson staff (Jo) were great and sorted out refunds and stuff. Book the 'Select' excursion to Capri, its a fanastic day.

Eat in town, the food and wine are great. Avoid the hotel terrace, go for the views but not the food ( 50 euros set menu for two) it was the worst meal of the holiday.

Would we go again? yes definately, but we would stay somewhere esle.

location is wonderful but our room was above a blind bend in the road below so we heard the coaches sounding their horns from 6am onwards. We were surprised that we were asked to pay 40 euros when checking in for room cleaning but paid it anyway,we were on holiday and nothing was going to stop us having a good time,but were disapointed that at no point did anyone clean our room or change the towels during our 7 day stay.
We were staying at the Club Due Torri Residence which are the self catering apartments about 100 yards up from the hotel itself, One evening we fancied a glass of wine on the balcony before going out but found we did not have a corkscrew in the room.I went to the hotel reception with the bottle of wine and asked for a corkscrew, the guy on the desk told me some what abruptly to go to the bar on the 5th floor which i did.The barman at the bar when i politely asked him for a corkscrew looked at me briefly shook his head the turned away from me and carried on putting glasses away.I then told him i was a paying guest staying in the hotels apartments, he then reluctantly produced a corkcrew, opened the bottle of wine, sniffed the cork and sneered at the bottle and me.Needless to say we did not go to the hotel again.
We were woken up on the first night at 3.45am by other guests of the hotel in the street shouting and playing loud music in a ground floor apartment. We were woken on another 2 nights at about 3 am by people letting off fireworks on the beach below i think they were celebrating someones birthday.
All of the above said we still had a wonderful holiday and the only thing that really upset me was the barmans attitude toward me, we went on 3 excursions arranged by Thomas Cook which were great and well organised, and we found the service from Thomas Cook to be very civilised and stress free.

Room Tip: pay the extra for a room with a sea view it is a fair bit more but worth it
