After staying at the Hotel Mega Mare for a couple of nights in October 1998 for a job interview with a local company I always wanted to go back. Situated next to the SS 145 main mountain road some 70 or 80 metres above sea level I fondly remembered the spectacular view over the Bay of Naples across to neighbouring towns such as Meta and Sorrento, and further towards the islands of Capri and Ischia and towards the city of Naples on the other side of the bay. If you go you will also see that the view is as stunning at night as during the day. I had told my wife about the place a number of times and this year we decided to go.
After driving from Naples Airport in a rented Fiat 500 we arrived on a Monday evening. The hotel has a large car park for its guests. Tired and hungry we asked owner Mariano Sasso if he could recommend a nice restaurant nearby. Demonstrating his excellent network of local contacts he asked the owner of restaurant Zio Sam in Meta to collect us and to bring us back to the hotel after a delicious meal. As Mariano was to demonstrate every day he is very friendly, approachable and very well informed in addition to having his contact network. This can also be said for all of Mariano's colleagues at the hotel. For us this was a great start to an unforgettable week.
The rooms are tidy, reasonably spacious and clean with plenty of storage space for clothes. There is also a safety deposit box for valuables. The bathroom has nice tiles and is equipped with everything you need. Most importantly each room has a spacious balcony for guests to enjoy the stunning views. It is also big enough for four adults to sit and have a chat and a drink from Mega Mare's well stocked bar.
The hotel also has a very beautiful terrace with a large, deep and most refreshing swimming pool for the guests to enjoy. This is also an excellent place to enjoy the spectacular views. Thus it is also a nice alternative to local beaches if you do not fancy going any where. Next to the pool there are sun beds for everyone along with a bar from which drinks and snacks can be ordered.
All in all I would like to express my gratitude to Mariano and his colleagues for their input in making our stay an unforgettable one at their excellent hotel. I can highly recommend the Hotel Mega Mare to anyone looking to explore a beautiful part of Italy famous for its climate, history, scenery, food and people. However, in order to fully enjoy the area, I would also recommend to rent a car.
