"Awful use of a stunning location" Hotel Villa del Mare Tip by cullenward

Hotel Villa del Mare, Maratea: 254 reviews and 0 photos

The last of three hotels in a road trip round Southern Italy. While this hotel is marketed as four star I can't honestly see it rating above a two star in any developed country.

The facilities are all worn, in many cases worn out. We have had four rooms in two days. No air con, no hot water. The management are long past caring.

I'll be amazed if this place is still in business in a year.

In a word; shocking.

Unique Qualities: Stunning location.

The only two star hotel in the world getting away with using four stars?
