“Tricky location and parking, great food and service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2013

The location is a littleout of Minori on one of the worst stretches of highway you will ever find. You can't see the hotel from the narrow windy road and could easily miss the entrance.
Parking is an experience best dealt with by the hotel service. Be very careful on exit.
The service was extremely good and we had wished to have booked to stay in the hotel itself, which was smart and classy.
Not a typical Best Western - A cut above everything else on this area of the Italian coast.
The food selection was excellent, the wines were excellent - try the local white, Furore.
The Ravioli was very good.
The Bianco di Pollo really waswhite chicken - taste, don't look.

We liked it so much that we came back a few days later and loved it even more the second time.

I'm glad you've found our hotel so comfortable to decide to return after just a few days.
It is true the road from us is a bit complicated, but that's part of the magic of the Amalfi Coast.

Best Regards

The hotel is well appointed with beautiful views. The room was lovely and spacious and very comfortable. The staff were very friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. Dinner on the terrace is stunning and the food is really good, with a new menu every day. Swimming in the Mediterranean using their private sunbathing location was a joy. In all we would thoroughly recommend the hotel.

Stayed here with three friends on a trip to Amalfi while we were touring Italy. We were looking for a place to stay in Ravello and came across the Best Western name. This hotel is nothing like a typical "best western." It has a privately owned feel to it. It's quiet and located in a beautiful spot. The drive down to the entrance was filled with flowers hanging over head and to the side. You could tell they took great care of their property. The people were very helpful and our rooms were clean. Both our rooms were decorated in a nautical style. We had breakfast there in the mornings looking out over the ocean, and the walk down to the ocean was just a few steps so it was easily accessible. We took cabs to Amalfi but the hotel has a bus service.

I stayed at this property on a two-week road trip in Italy with my boyfriend and, out of 7 hotels around the country, this was by far our favourite. Don't let the Best Western name put you off because this does not feel like a chain hotel!

As soon as we drove down the floral entrance to the hotel (it's a steep hill down but attendants park your car for you) we felt as though we were somewhere special. Of course, the location has a lot to do with that. Set in the cliffs with a swimming pool and sunbathing area overlooking the ocean (the hotel also has its own section of the sea roped off for guests), there is no need to leave the hotel if you're after a relaxing, romantic getaway. That said, Minori and Positano are a short drive away if you fancy venturing nearby.

The restaurant on the terrace serves great food for lunch and dinner (seafood in particular) and the complimentary breakfast in the bar is plentiful.

During our stay, staff in the hotel, at the restaurant and by the pool were friendly and attentive and the rooms were immaculate.

We did NOT want to leave!

It was difficult to find a hotel that fit 4 of us in a room AND offered unique experiences for both adult and children. Hotel Marmorata provided comfortable rooms and bathrooms as well as an interesting property layout that kept our children (10 & 8) busy all day. The ocean access is fun for kids and adults with quick access to the pool, drinks, and snacks. It's close enough to Amalfi so you can take the ferry to Capri, Positano and the surrounding areas. You will need to drive into the area but park your car and stick to cabs or public transport beyond that. The staff is wonderful, assisting with arrangements even before our arrival. The in-house restaurant changes it's menu nightly but closes early. My only recommendation is to provide longer hours for the beach/pool attendant, specially since the sun doesn't set until very late during summer.

Room Tip: This hotel is a bit out of the way so if your plan is to have a nightlife, stay closer to Positano...

Stayed here with 2 friends. Shared a triple room, spacious & roomy with a lovely view out over the bay.
Breakfast buffet splendid, hotel ristorante excellent, convenient & staff very friendly.
Situation not good for anyone who struggles with hills as quite a climb to get up to road. Adequate bus service to Amalfi or the other towns along the coast.

The Best Western Marmorata is about the only thing located in Ravello Mare, which is atop a small hill between Amalfi and Menori. There isn't much to do at the hotel proper, but it is perfect if you just want to relax and soak up the sun by the pool or cliffside. The Best Western chain is not one I typically stay at in the States, but our travel agent booked this one in Ravello and the reviews seemed fine. I was pleasantly surprised and overall had no real complaints. The entire hotel is nautically-themed with great attention to detail in all things maritime. It was clean and our room had a seaside view with tiled floor, very small bathroom but adequate, and with a nice shower. The bed was pretty comfortable although the pillows were too firm for my taste. Also, free wi-fi, fresh towels daily, and beach towels you can check out at the lobby for a 10 euro each deposit which is given back to you when you return the towels. The hotel staff are very nice and friendly. Breakfast buffet was ample. Dinner in the restaurant was pricy but good with an attentive wait staff. If you prefer more casual dining, there is a small Trattoria up the hill from the hotel and across the street with reasonably prices. Husband and wife-run, the pizza I ate was delicious and cooked in the oven situated near my table. To get to nearby Almalfi for sightseeing, beach time, or shopping you will have to walk, or catch the appropriate SITA bus. Taxis are off the meter and outrageously expensive. The hotel offered only a limited shuttle service to Almalfi which was disappointing at 8:30 am with a return at 6:30 pm, but that is a long day in a small town. Be careful if you decide to walk (around 45 minutes) as the road is narrow and windy and no room except for single-file, and it's a little dicey with the vehicle traffic. Go visit the town of Ravello which is adorable. You can take a taxi or climb the approx 1400 steps up the mountain (if you can tolerate steep stairs and heat...take water) It was well worth the effort as the views were incredible and it was a unique experience to see where the locals live.
