We stayed at Villa Maria for 1 night (thank god) at the beginning of October 2010, during a tour of the Med. 1st impressions of the hotel from the outside are lovely and so was the reception........ that´s where it ended!!!! The "Hotel" which consists of 3 villas linked by walkways. We were allocated a room in the Furthest west Villa (room 227) and could not believe our eyes when we opend the door. Some other reviews refer to "old world charm" I would call it hasnt been touched or maintained for 50 years! I would not refer to this as a hotel it is more of a Hostal standard, the place was clean, but there was paint coming off the ceiling,a purple bathroom suite, the towels were not towels but restaurant linen! When we went to reception to complain about the standard of our room the receptionist seemed surprised but offered us a key to another room, which was in the same villa. It was equally as horrid only larger. Our tour of ther med was solely in 4/5 star hotels with the exception of this"3"star and 1 night in a Travelodge, the Travellodge was half the price and 100 times better. If a good standard of up-to-date accomodation is important DO NOT stay here you will be sorely dissapointed, it is like a time warp and not in a good way. I love old hotels with character, but this is taking it too far!!
