These twin rooms come with a partial sea view. There’s a balcony for that extra bit of space. You’ll have 1 extra bed in the bedroom. And air-conditioning is available from 15th June to 15th September.
Stayed for week towards the end of October with a group. At first glance it was clean and tidy. We found the staff always professional, courteous and helpful. However, the rooms left a lot to be desired. The bed was so hard it was almost painful to sleep on. We had to enhance the very thin bedding with two single blankets used sideways which was very unsatisfactory. The bathroom towels were clean but of some sort of thin non- absorbent tea cloth type material. What ever happened to soft fluffy towels - totally unacceptable. We had an infestation of ants which was dealt with by the end of the day. The TV only had one English speaking channel - CCN News!! We could not make the aircon work at all. However we have to say the cleaner did an excellent job every single day.
One of the things we look forward to on holiday is good food. We were badly let down. Breakfast was repetitious and limited.The main part was the cold continental style with one lonely dish of scrambled eggs on a warming plate without a cover. Tea and coffee were plentiful.
At breakfast we had to choose our evening meal from an extremely restricted menu. We should have had a choice of at least three each of starters, mains and desserts but we didn't. The best dish was the soup. The main courses were awful. As an example I chose pork fillet. When it arrived on a cold plate, it had been beaten until it could almost be seen through and then fried in bread crumbs. I waited for a side plate of the usual vegetables. When it arrived it consisted of chopped lettuce and radish. There were no hot vegetables, sauce of any description or potatoes - not even chips! This was absolutely unacceptable. The dessert was a 'take it or leave it' slice of some sort of cake. There was no choice. It was obvious the staff were embarrassed because they delivered it and ran !!
This is absolutely not a 4 star - it might just about make a 2.
It was very clear it was the end of the season and we were the last guests. Some restaurants in the village were closing. Some had completely packed up before we left. The immediate area had little to offer except the beach.
The hotel should have operated properly until the last day.We will not be visiting this hotel ever again.More
Comfortlover245, Bournemouth, United Kingdom
We spent a week here at the end of October as part of a package holiday. The hotel is ideally situated right on the coast but to see any of the local sights you will need to travel along narrow, winding and hilly roads which take a lot longer than you mght anticipate. We arrived as the hotel was preparing to shut down for the winter, as a consequence we felt we had something of a rough deal in particular regarding the food. Breakfast was uninspired - considering Maiori is in the middle of a fruit-growing area we were served up tinned peaches and prunes, occasionally tinned pears too. The bread rolls were good but lacked any variety. The evening meal had to be selected at breakfast. There was always a soup and a pasta option (the best in our opinion). The main course included a meat, a fish and a vegetarian option but the portions were minuscule and the vegetables unpalatable (one evening we were given a teaspoon of some green sludge which was supposed to be endive). One evening we had fun counting the number of chips - the number ranged from a paltry 5 to a maximum of 9. On the final night the meat was "mixed beef" which turned out to be ... pork slices!! Plates were invariably cold and so the meals were at best luke warm. Previous reviews suggested guests had been given an option of 3 puds, we were not. We were usually presented with some small slice of 'cake,' those with dietary restrictions were given fruit. There was plentiful red wine (white had to be requested) at no extra cost but it was local and a rather rough table wine. Better wine was offered but at a cost. Tea or coffee had to be taken at the bar, it took several days before we realised we did not have to pay for this after the evening meal (it was chargeable at other times). Bar drinks were not cheap. The rooms were OK but dated (the mixed geometric patterns of the bathroom tiles were optically challenging!) and the towels were like tea-towels (thin cotton) a million miles away from the fluffy terry towels you would expect. We, like several others, had an infestation of tiny ants. The beds were rock hard and we had just a sheet and covering blanket - fine in the summer sun but not in late October. Some staff could be surly - hardly surprising I suppose considering most were to be laid-off over the winter. We had a side-room which gave a very restricted view of the sea. We had great exectations of the hotel having read previous reviews, I cannot beieve we were staying at the same hotel. We will not be going back.More
Decor in the lobby was nicer than the decor in the rooms. AC was really inadequate, we used a really old dusty fan provided to us. the location was wonderful. (Right across from the beach). Rooms were clean, facilities were adequate. (Not lush by any means) All of these things were not that big of a problem. We traveled with a group, and had the "meal plan". Breakfast was light but okay. Dinners, however, were pretty awful. Surprising for an area where the food is so good just because everything is so fresh. I would not recommend taking the food plan. There were times it was inedible. but.... location, location, location. More
MammaDonna, Fair Lawn, New Jersey
FANTASTIC HOTEL, WITH OUTSTANDING SERVICE
It's located on the promenade opposite the sea and a few minutes from the centre of town. The rooms are spacious comfortable and clean. It's the service that really sets this place from check in to check out nothing was too much trouble for the staff. Special thanks to Roberto, Rosy, Valentina and Luigi at the restaurant for the excellent service.
We would absolutely recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Maiori and have no doubt that we'll be back.
