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.
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.
Well appointed rooms, good location near the beach, clear signage to the hotel from the Autostrada. None
The staff was extremely friendly & helpful.
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.
Noisy next to the train rail and busy road. Could not see the Adriatic.
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.
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.
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 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
Freindly staff, great chef The entry from the town could be more appealing
The staff where terrific, nothing was too much trouble. The food and ambience where first class.
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 setting, the staff,
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
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 hotel is located on a hill with beautiful view. There is a nice spa.
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
a fantastic hotel and thev staff were lovely. This is right on the beach with a fantastic set up. Room was great.
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
Close to the station and the centre of town
The hotel is absolutely lovely, the rooms are very comfortable and spotlessly clean, the breakfast excellent and the staff extremely kind and helpful.
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!!!
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.
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.
Location Smell of drains in the bathroom
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 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.
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.
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.
Very good location, close to train station, closed parking place,
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.
Family and staff very friendly
Excellent staff. Friendly, helpful, English speaking. Was listed as being in Pescara, was actually in Montesilvano. €1.30 bus ride to Pescara city center.
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.
great location, decent breakfast, close to the beach, parking & internet
Nice friendly staff Parking an issue
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.
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.
Close to the airport, very clean and easy to find. The staff was borderline pleasant. No biggie though.
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.
very nice staff and very nice hotel/room, good price/quality the location is so-so, but it didn't matter
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
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
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.
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.
sea view TV set was out of order
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.
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.
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.
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
The people were most friendly and accomodating.
We loved the location and the balcony overlooking the beach
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.
We only stayed there as a stopover but location to the beach and restaurants was great.
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.
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.
Friendliness of staff, design of 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.
Very helpful and friendly staff. Comfortable and modern rooms. I will definately recommend this hotel.
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).
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.
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 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!!
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 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
Great location, very close to the beach. The hotel restaurant has a very basic menu, but the staff is pleasant. No internet connection.
The hotel was near the beach, service was good at the hotel. The sweet breakfast.
Very spacious and lovely-we were in off season so disappointed nothing much was open-like pool, etc.
The staff were really helpful. the location about 3kms out of town, so its lovely and quiet. Having stayed in town last year i know how noisy pescara can be at night! our room had a lovely view.
Beautiful garden. A perfect retreat with clean, fresh air! it was virtually empty, and felt almost abandoned.
