We stayed here for our friends wedding after they recommended we stay there and so glad we did. The hotel is about 10 minute walk from the main square in Ravello (cant get to it by car) The grounds are stunning, you walk into the outside restaurant that has breathtaking views across the hillside to the ocean. Covered in vines with statues and water features. Its classic and chic. The inside it decorated with traditional Italian decor. The room we had was an ok size but the AC was the best we had experienced, no noise but powerful. We room was clean and well maintained. Breakfast was great, with a selection of European with hot dishes (buffet style) but you could also order extras such as omelettes/poached eggs at no extra cost. The didn't have an iron so take a travel or they can press clothes for you at an extra cost. The walk into the main square is easy, just one path takes you all the way.
Found most of the staff to be very helpful, mainly in the restaurants. Found that the reception staff could have been more inviting and welcoming.
They have a sister hotel called the Giordano which is where you can park and where you have use of a pool. Food here is also very good for lunch! Didn't see the rooms at this hotel but to save the walk to the pool each day if that's your thing then look at staying here instead.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Situated in the historic centre between the Clarisse nunnery and S. Francis Convent, in a restful aristocratic area so much as to be chosen, the only hotel in the area, by the French guide-book "Relais du Silence" as an oasis of peace and by the Italian "Charme e Relax" as Ravello's pearl. Villa Maria assures his guests in addition to maximum tranquillity also the most services including the parking of nearby Hotel Giordano (of the same property) where it is possible to park for free the car and take advantage of free luggage handling and of the swimming pool (parking and swimming pool situated at the sister HOtel Giordano, approx. 5 Minutes walking distance). Rich and interesting is the history of this villa which was roman noble Marquis de Cinque family's manor, an history which blends with Ravello's and the Amalfi Coast's. The structure, while preserving the elegant forms of a lordly mansion, in the years has undergone noteworthy redecorations which have fashioned its actual splendour. ... more less
