Hotel Mari is in an enviable position on the harbor. It is simple, very clean, and lovely. The views are spectacular. The staff is markedly helpful but not intrusive. I appreciated the location and its simplicity. I absolutely would stay here again. I thought that the price was very reasonable. This is a very good three star choice!

Room Tip: Make sure to get a harbor view!

I absolutely love this hotel. Let me start off by saying that this hotel is very basic. It’s pretty much no frills. But that being said, it was perfect for our stay in Ponza. Things just happen slower on this island. Things are more peaceful. Ponza is a place where you can go and simply forget about the worries of the world – take in the breathtaking scenery, interact with the locals, enjoy some delicious food, and watch the evening slowly go by as you drink an Aperol Spritz (or two). This hotel fits the bill perfectly for that. It’s centrally located and the staff are warm and pleasant. English is not as common on this island as in other more touristy parts of Italy, and that’s part of the charm. The hotel staff though were very helpful – directing us to the local administrative office so my boyfriend could look up his mom’s birth record, spending time going through the all-italian San Silverio festival guide so we knew what events were happening during the feast day, giving us advice on renting boats, and generally just giving us an insider’s take on things to see and do on the island. The room was basic, but very clean – and although basic, I found it charming. Room was large with a good sized balcony overlooking the harbor – quite a lovely view. Hair dryer in the bathroom was one of the most bizarre looking devices I have ever seen --- like a vacuum attached to the wall. Breakfast was very basic, but the breakfast staff was lovely. The hotel was displaying beautiful ceramics from a local artisan in the common areas, and we ended up buying several pieces. I can’t wait until we go back to Ponza, and would be more than happy to stay at this lovely hotel.

Small, functional place right in the center of town. The rooms are bright, impeccably clean and those facing the harbor have a wonderful view. The staff are helpful, with breakfast being more than ample.
Ponza is a delight as we were there in May and there were very few tourists.
The only complaint was the long ferry from Formia...old and rickety.

Our friends and we loved our stay at Hotel Mari. Our room overlooked the harbour so we very much enjoyed watching the port activities. We had a relaxing stay and did not find our room to be disturbed by outside noise at all. The decor was simple but lovely and the room had everything we needed. All the staff were very helpful, friendly and obliging, from the cleaners to the breakfast staff and especially the reception staff. Breakfast was fantastic, especially the home-made cakes and pastries. I would go back to Ponza and the Hotel Mari in a flash...just perfect.

Room Tip: Take a room with seaview!

We booked this as a second choice but really glad we did. I am not so fit these days and this is one hilly place which is not so obvious when checking the web. However the hotel is magnificently placed right on the harbour and having a harbour view room is essential to get the complete experience. The rooms are minimal in creature comforts but the atmosphere created by the sounds, colours and lively traffic in the harbour more than make up for this. Life tumbles foward for for most of the day in a crazy interactive choreography between boats and land from the first ferry chugging away at 6.30 am until the last arrivals of the pleasure yachts in the slow waning of the light under a usually remarkable sunset. When we did go out the local buses are 5 minutes tramp around the harbour and for 1€ you can travel the llength and bteadth of this dream island. Breakfast is an experience with the owner and his wife very attentive and providing more than enough for two Scots on holiday. The local restaurants are a joy to experiment in. Seafood paradise.
Loved it.

Room Tip: Ask for harbour view or you will eternally regret it. Top floor at corner has best room, biggest balcony.
