Historical Traveller Reviews of Marina Riviera Hotel

Excellent hotel in terrific location

from Yorky2003
We stayed here for three nights combining it with a trip to Capri.
We had a beautiful room - very modern and well laid out with fantastic sea views and a lovely terrace. The hotel is conveniently situated just a few minutes from the centre of town - although about 20metres of the road had no pavement so need to take care of the traffic.
There is no swimming pool - but there is a very pleasant roof terrace with very comfortable sun loungers
The breakfast was excellent with a great choice of italian hot and cold dishes.
Drinks on the terrace in the evening were a must - both before and after wandering into town for Dinner. Local restaurants and bars generally offer good value for money - we also went to the expensive restaurant next door which I really enjoyed although my Husband was'nt very happy with his.
We left by ferry to go to Capri and as my husband had just had an operation we booked a taxi to take us the 200 metres to the ferry. He charged 15 euros which we thought was very expensive.
Would definitely stay at this hotel again if we were in the area

Romantic, friendly and efficient

from katsby
We arrived late at this beautiful hotel with no luggage (lost in transit). The lady owner not only phoned the lost and found help line for us, she also phoned her friend who works there to try and hurry it along. Then she produced toothbrushes and toothpaste for us.

The room was spotlessly clean and (fortunately) fully stocked with shampoo, soap, hairdryer etc. We had a superior room overlooking the harbour with a small balcony.

Breakfast was an excellent range of fresh fruit, giant croissants, pasta dishes, fresh mozzarella as well as cereal and marmalade. This was served on the balcony overlooking the beach by staff who were friendly and efficient.

The hotel has all the conveniences such as air con, safe, minibar etc combined with great service by people who seem to really care (the night porter came up quite cheerfully to show us how to use the telephone!). It is only a few minutes from the beach and bars/restaurants but has the most stunning, picture postcard views.

Overall we would thoroughly recommend this gem of a hotel.

Great hotel!

from EmmaA1
We recently stayed at the Hotel Marina Riviera for a week. It was a lovely hotel in a great location - literally a couple of minutes walk from Amalfi Town centre and the main port when you can get boats around Amalfi.

The hotel staff were very friendly and always offering to help us out. We had a lovely immaculate room with a great sea view. The hotel is in excellent condition and the dining areas are lovely - it was nice sitting with the sea view just having a quiet read and a drink sometimes.

We loved the breakfasts - home cooked local Italian food, with different dishes every day. Traditional breakfast (cereals, croissants etc) was also offered every day. Breakfast was a buffet and there was no pressure to hurry if you were late for breakfast which was great.

I read in one review that one traveller thought the hotel was noisy - we didnt hear any of the traffic etc though from our room. My only minor criticism was that our air conditioning wasn't great, but that was it. Overall i would very definitely recommend this hotel - it is in a great location (we could walk everywhere and did not have to worry about cabs), and the accomodation and breakfasts were of a very high standard.

We've got some tips on Amalfi etc which i hope other travellers find helpful:

Travel from Naples airport
- Please don't get conned as we did! If you get a cab it's about EUR 100-150 (prices are high as tourism only provides 6 months of trade). we were told at the airport to get a bus to Sorrento (about 7 Euros each) and then a bus from Sorrento to Amalfi. The buses to Sorrento go hourly and were fine, but at the other end, we would have had to have waited for another hour and a half for a bus that would take 2 hours to get to Amalfi (though the bus was cheap, only a few Euros). in the end we shared a cab with other travellers (40 Euros each) as we were tired and it was getting late.
What you can do, which noone told us, is get a bus from the airport to Naples port (3 Euros) or a cab (about 20 Euros) and then get a boat to Amalfi (1.5 hours - 2 hours journey - cost 10 Euros each). We got the boat back and it was a pleasure travelling back by the beautiful coast! The hotel is a 2 minute walk from the port, so it's an easy journey.

Car hire
- Don't do it! The roads are narrow and a nightmare and accidents can happen very easily.

Travelling around the islands
- You can get to Capri etc from the little port at Amalfi - don't be conned into going on day trips to Capri (they cost about 50 Euros) when the boat trip is only 10 Euros each way. We went to Positano for an afternoon - it was nice but there was not much to do.

Capri is a lovely, albeit now very touristy island, worth visiting.

- Booking trips
We went to Mount Vesuvius and Pompeii (amazing). We used touringpoint (the hotel recommended them and they seem to be the main agency - you can book everything in their shop which is a couple of minutes from the hotel). They are good but their charges do not include entrance fees or meals and they don't advertise that! For example, we paid 31 Euros each for the Pompeii/Vesuvius trip plus entrance fees - you can get the local buses for a couple of Euros each way according to my travel guide.

if you walk up mount vesuvius (definitely worth it, especially for the views) be sure to ignore any elderly locals who may offer to walk with you etc - apparently it's a con to get money from you at the end.

- Ravello
the views are amazing, and you can get the bus from the main Amalfi port area for 1 Euro each way. when you get there you can pay 5 Euros to go in Villa Cimbrone - i would recommend this for the stunning views and garden.

Restaurants
- We ate out at the little restaurants nearby in the town centre. they were all nice. We tried out Eolo next door which was lovely but very expensive so if your budget is tight, it's worth avoiding.

Everything you can imagine...

from Meemers333
We stayed at the HMR for two night as part of our honeymoon along the Amalfi coast. Everything about this hotel is breathtaking!!! The lobby, the rooms, the dining area...everything was so charming and beautiful. The staff were also extremely friendly. And, the location was just perfect with steps away from both the public and the town center. I would definitely recommend staying here. Also, I would recommend eating the pizza at S. Andrea at the town center and Lido Azzurro for dinner fown along the water (make sure you make reservations for the perfect view of the sea).

Gorgeous view

from deeee
We stayed at the Hotel Marina Riviera for our honeymoon. It was fantastic! The staff were extremely friendly & helpful. The rooms were basic but clean with an excellent view of the Amalfi coast. As previous reviewers have mentioned, having breakfast on the terrace was excellent & the food itself was very good too.

The hotel is in a great location, not too far from the main square & the stoney beach! The only issue we had was getting to Amalfi from Naples which took longer then expected.

We would definitely go back to Amalfi & stay at the hotel again. I would also recommend a visit to the neighbouring little town - Atrani. There is a little square which is well worth a visit & lovely little restaurants.

Lovely place!

from Scallie
What a warm welcome! Like staying in a family home, the staff at this hotel are extremely friendly and helpful. Loved the stay, and the hotel manager couldn't do enough for us. Fabulous views, wonderful decor and just an overall great experience.

A wonderful holiday...

from slee1511
The Hotel Marina Riviera is a delight to stay at if you are visiting Amalfi. The views over the bay are wonderful any part of the day. All the rooms seem to have a sea view and are immaculate, comfortable bed and had everything you would need. The breakfasts on the terrace were marvellous, a great buffet selection suited to everyone's taste. The staff at the hotel were all very helpful. Unlike a previous guest who left a report on Tripadviser we didn't find it noisy, but it was May so paossibly in high season it could be a bit more noisy. The situation was very handy and we had easy access to all Amalfi's lovely shops and restaurants.

Unsurpassable Amalfi Coast Hotel Experience

from A TripAdvisor Member
The experience my wife and I had at the Marina Riviera Hotel in Amalfi was wonderful. Our stay there was just before the high season the week of 7 May 2006. As can be seen from the hotel's website, the setting on the Amalfi Coast is undescribably beautiful. The hotel is immaculate and guests are treated like family members. The rooms are amply large and beautifully outfitted. The bathrooms are also quite large compared to most European hotels. Complementary breakfasts served each morning were truly a gourmet experience, a surprise we never expected and one which would be difficult to replicate even in a world class five star hotel. We would consider going back to the Amalfi Coast just for the experience of staying in the Marina Riviera Hotel.

I left my heart in Amalfi....

from JoeGDublin
I travelled to Amalfi with my wife and two friends, we were booked in somewhere else but did not like the look of the place when we arrived.
Our first stop in the search for alternative accommodation was Marina Riviera, and we got two wonderful rooms on the 1st floor overlooking the harbour and bay. We loved the view, we loved the hotel for its relaxed ambience and spotlessness, for the warm and friendly staff. Breakfast on that terrace overlooking the bay is an unforgettable experience, and we will return to explore the surrounding area and the enotecas and restaurants of Amalfi.

The town itself is nice, a pleasure to walk through and we found some very good, inexpensive restaurants including Trattoria da Baracca in Piazza dei Doggi (great for dinner and superb sea-bass) and the enoteca just across the piazza from the trattoria is also nice.

I recommend the hotel highly, I recommend the area very highly, until now my wife and I were convinced that only Toscana or Umbria could hold our attention. Amalfi, ti amo!

Simply Marvelous

from A TripAdvisor Member
In September, 2005, my husband and I spent 3 wonderful nights at the Marinariviera Hotel. This hotel is gorgeous, spotless, and the proprietors are warm and attentive. Our room was spacious, clean, well appointed, and there were fresh flowers and a platter of fruit in our room upon arrival. The hotel has a magnificient view of the bay. Antonio, the owner with his wife, Sylvia, cooks the spectacular breakfast with many regional delicacies. They truly take much pride in their hotel and it is mirrored by their wonderful efficient and friendly staff. We would return in a heartbeat.

Top Local Tips for Amalfi

Getting Around Do not rent a car on the Amalfi Coast. Not at all necessary. The busses and the ferries are a much better alternative. Cars are pricey, fuel prices are ludicrous, traffic is really heavy and there is no parking anywhere. We had no problems getting around.

Staying in Amalfi It's perfect for honeymooners or couples, because there is not a huge amount to do in the evenings, other than eat out!

Be prepared in advance Getting to Amalfi is not too difficult as long as you are prepared. If you would like to save money, you can take the train from the central station in Naples to Sorrento, then catch a bus... overall trip will take over 2 hours and cost appx $60 Euros a person. You can also rent a car (in advance from the states would be recommended) in order to personally experience the winding drive through the mountains and small towns, though keep in mind this is still a "pricey" option and the parking availability is quite limited. Lastly, you can do as we did and hire a driver (not advised, though we rolled the dice) and get there in 90 minutes for around $150 Euros minimum, though your stomach will be feeling it.
