We booked a quadruple room, and we got a 2-room (bedroom with double bed and guestroom with double sofa-bed) suite with big balcony. Staff was helpful, however could be a little bit better English speaking. Hotel is in 5 mins walking distance from the beach (hotel has private beach, however you will be charged a small (10-15 EUR/day) fee to use their facilities (beach chairs and umbrella).
we had a fantastic room and had the pool which is on the roof to ourselves. The family who are there are very friendly.
Swimming pool was clean and view from the pool was nice. Pool is in sheltered place on the roof and sun is shining all day there so good place for sunbathing. Hotel is close to sea so there is easy access to beach. Breakfast was poor if you have used to european style hotel breakfasts. No decent bread and only limited amount of toppings.
the building itself is beautiful, great location little too close to the noisy train tracks
Very good clean room with drinks facilities.Friendly helpful staff.Impressive breakfast. Noise. We only stayed one night not five as booked. Trains in particular made it very noisy despite claims of soundproofing - extra layer needed at least to be effective.
The staff was extremely friendly & helpful.
Wonderful historic building beautifully maintained with very helpful owners. Don't be alarmed by the proximity of train tracks and street as the double glazed windows really cut the sound.
The owners had clearly spent alot of time and effort to make the hotel look appealing and welcoming which was greatly appreciated. The location was very good though when we arrived we did npt realise that we were staying in a separate place to Pescara. In any event, we had a wonderful time and the owners were exceptionally friendly and helpful. Check out time was a little early. A spare/separate room where guests can take a shower and get changed would be a good idea - even at extra cost.
Well appointed rooms, good location near the beach, clear signage to the hotel from the Autostrada. None
Noisy next to the train rail and busy road. Could not see the Adriatic.
The staff (one owner) is very nice and helpful. He went out of his way to accommodate us. The rooms are beautiful and very comfortable. The hotel itself is a piece of history. The restaurant on the -1 level is outstanding! It is not part of the hotel, but is connected and one of the best in Italy. Slow Food, delicious, affordable, and the staff extremely friendly and accommodating. Wifi did not reach the 2nd floor room. The breakfast in hotel was all packaged & processed foods (they need fresh fruit and fresh bread). The coffee was terrible. Small issue if you are not a breakfast person. Note: my parents liked the breakfast. However, the staff and hotel were amazing and we would stay there again.
everything - the proximity to the beach, the simple beauty of the room. the hotel itself is lovely and the staff extremely helpful. NA
The location of the hotel is beautiful. Breakfast each morning was on a veranda overlooking the Adriatic Sea. There is a wonderful pool with many places in the hotel to sit and relax. The room was warm, and we had to go to the front desk to ask for the air to turn be turned on. There we also numerous little flies in the room.
The staff where terrific, nothing was too much trouble. The food and ambience where first class.
the setting, the staff,
The hotel is located on a hill with beautiful view. There is a nice spa.
Freindly staff, great chef The entry from the town could be more appealing
We enjoyed a lovely dinner in the hotel restaurant and the next day used the spa facilities and had a massage. The spa was wonderful and both the hotel and spa staff were very friendly and helpful. The swimming pool was not as clean as it should have been and I found the decor of the room to be a bit too modern but that was probably the look that this hotel was going for.
absolutely everything, staff exceptional, gorgeous grounds, great food, beautiful location, want to go back soon!
We liked everything about Hotel Villa Maria. The staff all love their jobs and you get the best possible treatment. Everything is fresh, the pool is super, the food and drinks are perfect. And there is a very nice spa and wellness area. We had a nice room with a beautiful view over the Adriatic. We were booked for four nights, but decided to stay longer. So we had 8 nights in a total.
The staff were wonderful, helpful and very considerate and accomodating without being intrusive, a truly lovely experience. The location above Francavilla, overlooking the Adriatic and the truly romantic indoor/outdoor pool, swimming in the rain, fabulous Spa and staff removed all the stresses from my accident....Villa maria is the perfect tonic! n/a
The entire staff and the hotel manager were more than helpful. The hotel is lovely , set in beautiful park like surroundings with a view of mountains and ocean We had ants in our room from the balcony
Nice location directly on the beach - chairs on the beach included in the price Breakfast was very bad, service not really motivated and fruits at breakfast sitting there forever. WIFI was not working the entire week and nobody cared about fixing it...and might be still not working!
a fantastic hotel and thev staff were lovely. This is right on the beach with a fantastic set up. Room was great.
Good location near the sea, the staff was friendly and service minded. The restaurant was good for hotel standard. Would recommend the fish rest near by. It was exelent. To little to do near by the hotel in october… not much open.
Breakfast and parking
The location with direct access to the beach including free parking is simply excellent and comfortable The poor decoration and lack of pictures on the walls
the comfort,the decor,the central location makes this hotel ideal for when i go to pescara I have been to this hotel for e few years now, it has gone through a major refurb during this time, but so have the prices.
Cenrally located, easy to find, able to park outside, spacious, clean well decorated room and a reasonable breakfast.
The staff made an effort to speak in English and check in/check out was available 24 hours a day The doors are locked during the night and you have to ring a bell to gain access, I was unaware of this when going out and as such had to wait 15 minutes on the doorstep in the rain, ringing the bell, hoping for somebody to open the door.
Very good location - 3 min from bus and central train station, but in quite area and 5 min in walking distance from sea. Very helpfull stuff - we left hotel before breakfast time ( at 6.00 a.m.) but still have a breakfast and very tasty cappuccino. We spent very nice 3 days in Pescara. And you should see the interior of this hotel!!!
The hotel is absolutely lovely, the rooms are very comfortable and spotlessly clean, the breakfast excellent and the staff extremely kind and helpful.
Location Smell of drains in the bathroom
Quiet location just off main pedestrian area, & perhaps 10 mins walk from seafront. Very convenient to Pescara train station and for bus to & from airport. Parking was unavailable in vicinity but cheapily available at station. Breakfast was provided for early departure.
The atmosphere. Very relaxing and quiet.
Close to the station and the centre of town
Excellent family-run hotel. The staff really went out of their way to be helpful and friendly. They arranged a transfer to the airport for me specially and provided me with information on buses etc. The in-house restaurant was convenient and the food good. And the price very reasonable! The hotel is right next to the station in the low town, so although the view isn't great (as it is in Chieti Alta), it is very easy for buses and trains, without being noisy. I will return again when I am next in the area. Thank you!
We have stayed before and the hotel has definitely improved. Our room was excellent and even had a view of the sea. Restaurant menu was not diverse especially for vegetarians. Breakfast was basic and did not include fresh coffee.
The location was great. If it was warmer we would've gone swimming because the beach is only within a few minutes walk. The hotel is nice and clean. Our room had a nice wrap-around terrace. Parking lot is a bit tight but free. WiFi is free but for us it only worked in the lobby.
not a log small rooms, set well back from the sea, had small balcony with sea view but only a single chair, very poor breakfast (nescaffee in Italy!!!), in a residential area with no beach front bars/cafes etc. long walk to restaurants. One staff spoke English.
Near the sea, Clean and staff very open to make our trip comfortable breakfast is too much cheap, not enough choice except in biscuits, no fresh fruits and the room is very noisy. our family trip were in november and the hotel were empty.
Nice friendly staff Parking an issue
Very good location, close to train station, closed parking place,
Excellent staff. Friendly, helpful, English speaking. Was listed as being in Pescara, was actually in Montesilvano. €1.30 bus ride to Pescara city center.
Family and staff very friendly
The staff was friendly and spoke english. There was no carpet in the room and the ground didn't seem very clean. The breakfast was very poor.
great location, decent breakfast, close to the beach, parking & internet
The rooms were very nice and the hotel was very well situated. The price was outstanding as well. The food did not live up to our expectations so we only ate in one of the 2 nights we stayed in Pescara. The menu was slightly limited. We had picked this specific Hotel based on the online reviews that we read.
This was a perfect time of year to stay here (late September) as the crowds were not existent. We were pleasantly surprised by the complimentary light dinners and drink voucher. The room was immaculate. Although it is also a residence hotel with families and children present the hotel, in general, was very quiet.
sea view TV set was out of order
very near the sea. Balcony with seaview showerhead was great but cabine should have been a touch bigger
Location to the seafront was excellent. Also good location in relation to Stadio Adriatico for football trip. Difficult to get to from airport. Taxi expensive. Journey from airport to hotel involves two bus journeys.
I found the staff to be extremely polite and helpful. The only thing that I found disappointing was that the hot water was never more than luke warm.
clean rooms, friendly & helpful staff
The staff was fabulous. The service was good and rooms were nice. Of course the beach right there across the street was the best part.
This was just an overnight stay after getting off a ferry from Croatia. Very clean and convenient. Good to have fast wireless internet access in the reception area - though it didn't work on all our gadgets. The night porter did not speak any language other than Italian - but was very friendly and helpful and we somehow understood each other.
The staff were very helpful, the location was great, central and close to the beach. The hotel has a nice, clean design. The bed was quite hard and we could hear everything from the hall/ room next to us. The breakfast could be more varied (although this was a typical breakfast in Italian hotels).
The staff was so wonderful, even going as far as to assist us in making phone calls to long lost relatives and acting as translators when we found our relatives. The location is also wonderful and it was so nice to have a pc with internet it our room. The hotel is absolutely beautiful and I highly recommend it to fellow travelers, whether for business or holiday. We loved everything about this hotel!!
Friendliness of staff, design of hotel
Centrally located in Pescara with parking - a big plus.
Location was excellent. Hotel staff couldn't have been more helpful and friendly. Of our 17 day trip through Europe, they were the best we came across. Good breakfast. Room was a little small, but the balcony made up for this.
The staff were extrememly helpful. The breakfast was also very good. The fact that this hotel provided car parking at no cst was very attractive also, as was the provision of internet services. The hotel was located in a fantastic position close to the riviera and right in the centre in the vicinity of the boutique shops.
Very helpful and friendly staff. Comfortable and modern rooms. I will definately recommend this hotel.
The location, the style of the hotel and excellent staff service. All aspects of the hotel was perfect for us. The staff were friendly and the continental breakfast had plenty to choose from with fresh produce. None
The staff were very friendly and gave great recommendations of where to eat while we were staying in the area. Balcony quite small and shower a bit quirky, but nothing really bad to say.
Loved the location. Staff could not be more helpful or knowledgeable with their recommendations. Only downside is the price of the hotel as similar locations can be found for half the price and are not half the quality.
clean rooms, friendly and helpful staff, excellent choice for breakfast.
The people were most friendly and accomodating.
We only stayed there as a stopover but location to the beach and restaurants was great.
Location by the Beach and nice Breakfast Staff very unobliging as to extending our stay for the same price. One said yes but ask the Manager and the older man said no so we left. Hotel wasnt even full at the time.Also not a 4 star hotel as advertised.
We loved the location and the balcony overlooking the beach
Sun and bath in the sea, but we vere out of the season? The weather good! Nice food and Wine.Bycyckeles Roma tour with bus. Nice! Trafick near.
The personnel of the hotel was extremely nice and polite, willing to meet any need, any inquiry of the guest. I was very pleased with the way they treat all the guest. The breakfasts are rich with food for all types of preferences. The rooms looking to the beach side are quite noisy (the auto-road and the bars with discoteques make a lot noise), but the Management of the Hotel gave me another room as soon as I asked about it. The hotel is actually something between 3 and 4 stars level, but the price was more than fair taking into account the location and that the beach chaiselong with umbrella are included to the price so I was satisfied and I would recommend it to my friends.
Nice location and beautiful see view from the room; kind staff and good breakfast the wireless signal was poor in the room and no connection was possible in the room
Family hotel very convenient to beach, shopping areas,bus and train station.The German lady in the hotel Patricia had very good english(which was very poor in all places we went to in Pescara).She gave us tremendous help in relation to eating out ,markets,bus routes etc.
Friendly staff. ease of parking. access to beach. great balcony with great view. coffee machine. prefer fresh coffee in the morning.
The room is spacious, like an appartment. 4 people can stay in one room. Also, the hotel was cheap for a good quality. Hotel was next to beach Sometimes it was hard to communicate in english with the staff
Very spacious and lovely-we were in off season so disappointed nothing much was open-like pool, etc.
The staff of the hotel was very friendly. Breakfast was average but given the price is also fine. There is a bus stop just in front of the hotel and straight access to the beach from the hotel. I perhaps recommend a little better cleaning of the rooms but in general we were very satisfied with the hotel.
The hotel was near the beach, service was good at the hotel. The sweet breakfast.
Great location, very close to the beach. The hotel restaurant has a very basic menu, but the staff is pleasant. No internet connection.
Staff was eager to serve, and make you feel at home. For example, I couldn't connect to Internet due to my Ethernet cable being faulty: they found out the reason, and they provided me with a working cable.
Close to the airport, very clean and easy to find. The staff was borderline pleasant. No biggie though.
Comfortable hotel, with good equipment (Sat TV), rooms were clean Personnel serving breakfast was not friendly, after 09:00 AM many items were missing from the buffet
very nice staff and very nice hotel/room, good price/quality the location is so-so, but it didn't matter
Large parking lot just in front of the hotel. Quick check in/check out but "cold staff". The room was extremely large and nice. Not too much variety of food during breakfast, no scrambled eggs or bacon for instance. No bathtuub in the room. Furniture of the reception and breakfast room too minimalist for a 4 star hotel
Clean new hotel with nice well air conditioned rooms and friendly staff. Door pass failed to work several times. Huge mirror seemed to be resting on a shelf that was about to fall off the wall. Shower screen leaked over the bathroom floor. Food overpriced and under expectation for Italy. Staff mostly speak Italian only, not much English.
Friendly reception, very modern room particularly the bathroom, excellent on site restaurant offering outstanding value to hotel guests location is very convenient for an en route stop, although located in a commercial area but return to Autostrada was a bit confusing
Really good breakfast (both italian and international), great location (not far from a free beach and from several good shops), welcome biscuits and cleanliness of the room The park was full!!! (Not surprising as there are about 7 parks available for the whole hotel) even if it was included in the price. One receptionist was completely unhelpful and told me: "Sorry but you chose the bad day". Never heard that before, neither in a two stars hotel! More likely the hotel was bad! Room very small for a four stars hotel
The way the staff addressed any of my questions and help me.
the staff we polite and helpful 24 hours you need Wi FI for users who cannot use ethernet
Firstly, we received a really good deal on our room, approximately half price the normal rate. Secondly, it is only a 15min drive from Pescara airport and less than a 2 min walk to the heart of shopping and less than 5 min to the beach. It was very clean and the Cafe Plaza was also very nice and tasteful with an air conditioned outside extension. Although we arrived just after 2pm check-in time, our room was not ready. We had a drink in the Cafe, however I think it would have been nice to offer the drinks as complimentary. We also did not get our wake-up call at 4.15am, and the lift was not working when we were trying to leave thus causing a rush to the airport.It was not clearly indicated (in english at least) if there were stairs to take down which we were willing to do even though we were on the 5th floor, so we had to go back to the room to phone reception. They then told us there was a technical fault and we had to use the service elevator.
The hotel was comfortable and in a good location. Lack of understanding of English language and lack of teamaking facility, no english tea or milk provided.
The accomodation, and staff were exelent
Very private hotel,spotlessly clean,staff there if you needed them day or night.Close to airport,railway station,bus station & beach. Would have liked the main restaurant to be open.
I most enjoyed the very central location of the hotel. The breakfast served by the hotel was especially good. The elevator had broken down and was under repair. This meant climbing stairs with luggage in tow.
The room was beautiful: large, well designed, and with a great view over the square. The hotel was well-signed and easy to find. Breakfast was also very good.
Better qualety of food and juice
