Lovely hotel -- nice decor, friendly staff, clean and served delicious coffee and breakfast. Weird location, in an industrial area. Dinner options not great for family with kids, required going out of hotel in evening. I do not recall the odd location being described in the reviews, but could be my mistake.
Close to the highway, not difficult to find, easy to park No bathtuub in the room. Slighly noisy
this hotel is very good . Internet, garage, Breakfast... all what you need.
Very clean, very good breakfast, good service, comfortable. Location is perfect, if one has a car. None
The staff were very pleasantly relaxed and cheerful in contrast to the starchy politeness usually encountered. The price charged for an after-dinner drink was unacceptable given the tiny measures!
Brand new hotel, not far away from the highway and easy to park. Good breakfast. Nice design of the room with the shower just in the middle of it No issues with the cups this time (please read my previuous review). I would have loved a bathtuub in the bathroom but unfortunately in new hotels they are really disappearing.
beautiful interiors, very friendly and helpful staff, tasty breakfast, there is a quite big car park next to the hotel and some additional parking spaces as well- all free of charge!
Good position for beach and shops. Comfortable rooms with a good seaview but not loads of space. Friendly staff Needed to ask for extra pillows.Surprised to find no wine list in the main restaurant.
Not much (see next answer) Room too hot and air con not on. One member of staff extrememly rude.
it was on the beach and near the city center it was a little bit cold in the room but i think it's perfect during the summer hollyday
Exellent kitchen There were non mentioned building activities going on.
Nothing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Where do I start. This hotel is very dissapointing, it requires a complete renovation throughout. It is very expensive & overpriced for the facilities it offers. The bedrooms are very small and dark. The hotel staff are sullen and not very helpful! As I am a disabled client and use a wheelchair, I realise that I am ina minority, but as the hotel advertises disabled access, do not use this hotel!!
very near the sea. Balcony with seaview showerhead was great but cabine should have been a touch bigger
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.
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.
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.
clean rooms, friendly & helpful staff
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.
sea view TV set was out of order
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
a fantastic hotel and thev staff were lovely. This is right on the beach with a fantastic set up. Room was great.
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!
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 stay was ok. Friendly and good staff, not too expensive, beach close to hotel with complimentary sun beds for hotel guests. Found one good restaurant nearby; ... Et Nobilite, The hotel food was not very good (tried it only once, the hotel staff had a hard time even making scrambled eggs). The kids had a good time, Italians are great with children.
Very nice staff, excellent breakfast, very good position (sea and nightlife) The room was good but some details could make it better: the tv set (good one) had all cables visible and the wall behind it had the signs of the previous wall-mount.
swimming pool, rich breakfast, private parking
We thought that we could eat at the restaurant. They were having a wedding so I do not think the restaurant is open to hotel guests when they have events.
we arrived after midnight and got a super service of the night porter. The view and the fact that it was not possible to get fresh air in the room. Half of the rooms has a view on the inside of the hotel and no contact with outside. Bad smell in the corridors.
A decent hotel with good staff See price babybed!!
The staff was friendly and very helpful. The place was very clean. The room was a bit cold and the temperature gauge was not very user friendly.
the hotel was locateld very badly. 16 km far from fossacesia, instead of 4,5 km as promised.
Our stay at Villa Medici for 8 days was excellent. The hotel staff went out of their way to assist us in any way possible. They took care of our hotel arrangements in Rome without hesitation. We were able to rent a car inside the hotel and the gentleman who looked after the rental, also went out of his way to arrange our cab for the early morning hours when leaving for Rome. We look forward to returning to Medici in the future. We would highly recomend this hotel to anyone who wishes to have a very pleasant stay. One night however, is not long enough to enjoy the beautiful pool that was always kept immaculate. Thank you to all of the very friendly staff, you made our stay feel like family.

Close to the highway, easy to park The hotel in general was OK. Unfortunately I wedding party was going on and I could not sleep until 2 a.m. I was given a room just above the party informing me at 10 pm that in 30 minutes everything was over. When the shift changed at the reception, there was a more reasonable guy who changed the room. Breakfast the day after very poor.
Close to high way. Good Breakfast The room was confortable but furniture was not cosy and in harmony with the hotel
Front desk speaks no english. Passports held and left without ID's to move around in town. Noisy beds when you move. Many youngsters (noisy, late sleepers) were in hotel too, we did not have a good sleep as they were accomodated next to us.
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
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.
the staff we polite and helpful 24 hours you need Wi FI for users who cannot use ethernet
The way the staff addressed any of my questions and help me.
The accomodation, and staff were exelent
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.
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
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 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!!
Very helpful and friendly staff. Comfortable and modern rooms. I will definately recommend this hotel.
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.
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.
Centrally located in Pescara with parking - a big plus.
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.
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 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
Friendliness of staff, design of hotel
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.
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.
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
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.
clean rooms, friendly and helpful staff, excellent choice for breakfast.
Friendly staff. ease of parking. access to beach. great balcony with great view. coffee machine. prefer fresh coffee in the morning.
The people were most friendly and accomodating.
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.
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 only stayed there as a stopover but location to the beach and restaurants was great.
We loved the location and the balcony overlooking the beach
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.
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 staff was extremely friendly & helpful.
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 building itself is beautiful, great location little too close to the noisy train tracks
everything - the proximity to the beach, the simple beauty of the room. the hotel itself is lovely and the staff extremely helpful. NA
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.
Helpful staff. Fabulous location for the beach. Difficult to find using buses. Even bus driver didn't know where we should get off.
Staff very friendly and helpful. Excellent location right next to the beach.
The location was excellent for the beach and nice restaurants. The reception and downstairs areas were impressive, and reception staff very good. The room that we were allocated was nothing like the lovely one on the website and did not reflect the amount of money it cost.
very nice people working there. We switched rooms and got a better room. Better breakfast, more to choose in.
Excellent stay friendly helpful staff excellent position.
The hotel is compact and right on the seafront. Its prices are very reasonable and while its rooms are not huge and the breakfast not lavish it looks good, is kept impeccably clean and has staff that are both friendly and helpful. No.
The staff was really nice people - everyone was very serviceminded and very friendly to us. Thanks a lot to them all. We had a room with balkony, and the beach bar across the street had parties Monday, Wednesday and Friday evening/night during our stay - and it was too much noice for sleeping, until they closed.
Helpful pleasant service from the staff. rooms were a bit small for my liking.
Beach facilities Hotel information on their web, site would not conform to U.K trade descriptions.
The best location in Pescara with sea view and the hotel staff is very friendly.
Clean, comfortable room, with very helpful staff. I was expecting beach front, or at least ocean view but that was not the case.
Very modern, nice and clean, excellent staff, great location for beach and views. As it was 1st weekend in October the beach was deserted we were the only ones to sunbathe and swim in the sea. Nice and quiet. Would go back but in season only. We went 1st of weekend of October it was still very warm 24 -27c, however the pool on the roof top was already shut, the sunbathing chairs were broken, the spa-sauna was shut for the season. Which was disappointing, plus everything else in the area was shut for the autumn, so to eat we had to travel by taxi to Pescara as nothing in the area was open. However still lvoely hotel
Really modern hotel, lovely pool and helpful staff
the location is very good for the beach which is just across the road. The receptionists tried hard to be informative and helpful the hotel has very little sound-proofing between rooms and corridors. It gets very noisy during early morning when the maids start work.
I had the impression from the site that the hotel overlooked the beach, that isn't the case.
The Staff were very helpful; the facilities very good, hotel in lovely setting, facilities are very contemporary and nice ambiance. Overall we loved our time there which was helped by the really friendly staff No menu in the restaurant, had to rely on head waiters recommendations which seemed to be the more expensive options, it appeared, and limited in choice, hence only had two meals there, but lovely setting. Holiday was out of season and the pool was not kept clean, which was a facility we were not able to use, though advertised as being available.
My wife took a terrible fall in this hotel because she was leaning on the back wall of the elevator and the elevator door opened from the opposite side. There was no sihn indicating elevator door opened from the rear once you left the lobby
very nice hotel decor and rooms, good location loud music played till 12.00 meant we couldnt sleep. when asking the staff what they would do about about they said nothing. were moved off our sun lounger on the beach as told it was reserved for the hotel director!!
close to the beach, yet very quite no
Nice location not far from the sea side. Opportunity to have a nice walk close to the beach. Breakfast can be improved (no scrambled eggs and very limited choices of cheese, ham). The wellness center was under maintenance with a very strange message. It read "please stay tuned, information on re-opening the wellness center will come soon", which for somebody who does not plan to go there soon again sounds strange and somehow useless. No price reduction because of this service not available. Internet connection free of charge but extremely slow. No bathtuub in the bathroom and shower coming only from the top. In general I had the perception that "saving" money was one of the drivers in running this hotel
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
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.
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.
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
Close to the airport, very clean and easy to find. The staff was borderline pleasant. No biggie though.
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
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 hotel is absolutely lovely, the rooms are very comfortable and spotlessly clean, the breakfast excellent and the staff extremely kind and helpful.
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.
The atmosphere. Very relaxing and quiet.
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!!!
Location Smell of drains in the bathroom
Close to the station and the centre of town
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.
Freindly staff, great chef The entry from the town could be more appealing
absolutely everything, staff exceptional, gorgeous grounds, great food, beautiful location, want to go back soon!
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 staff where terrific, nothing was too much trouble. The food and ambience where first class.
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 setting, the staff,
The hotel is located on a hill with beautiful view. There is a nice spa.
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.
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.
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
