Lovely staff, very friendly. Reception and stairway were grubby looking I thought. Also a very cramped reception area. Room very clean and spacious enough. Very noisy you could hear the occupants upstairs flushing toilets etc... Doors banging were also intermittent, there was a knocking at the door sporadically some mornings. For these reasons I would not stay here again. The pool was a small pool but very apt for children and families.We did not use it. Breakfast was good varied choice and great coffee!y
Honestly the owner was lovely. A man came to the breakfast area and spoke to the owner who asked him to stand away from the cooking area. After service the owner made the man a pancake with filling and put it in a tin foil container. The man did not look homeless but obviously was in need. I thought this was a genuinely kind man caring for others in this way.
Location fantastic close to beach about a mile walk to the town of Marina di Pietra Santa(a lovely shopping and restaurant town). Visit 'Alex' the restaurant in Marina di Pietra Santa absolutely fantastic! Pricey but worth it! The old town of Pietra Santa is fantastic real italian charm. When you go there look out for blackie, a white terrier. He has one ear standing up and one ear normal, he is so cute his owners adore him. Also he is white...! I fell for blackie and told his owners in my limited italian. THEY WERE SO PROUD!
Refrain from using taxis so expensive buses are great always ontime and £1.60 per trip! Check
timetables for late buses they are fewer late at night.
Visit Torre del Lago if you can...it was an eighty euro taxi ride home to Marina di Pietra Santa but the opera was sensational it was called ' Turandot'. You need to arrange a taxi from the train station if you travel to Torre del Lago by train it is a fifteen minute walk to the opera arena from the station. Hailing taxis is not an option you need to pre book or gobto a taxi rank. No taxi ranks in Torre del Lago. That was on during the Puccini festival check what is on when you are in that area well worth it!
I chose hotel villa marzia based on tripadvisor reviews. It was not for me but I still follow tripadvisor as a measurement for good restaurants and accomodation. MARINA DI PIETRA SANTAis fantastic for kids fairs and fun boats and beachside attractions. Remember to visit the old town it is amazing.
