This hotel is just outside Ortona and from the street it looks like it could use a little sprucing up. This could be in part because the surrounding area isn't the nicest. Inside, the hotel is clean and fairly modern looking. Our superior sea facing rooms were modern and clean with a large bathroom and nice linens. There was a... More

A grand old hotel with a beach kept pristine, the sea shallow up to the man made breakers. The service at the front desk was superlative and friendly, the room ok with a small tv screen and a large balcony. Comfortable bed and very quiet location, a few Kms away from the city of Ortona, needing a car or public... More

We stayed in this hotel for one night during a long drive home. This was at the very beginning of the season so that the whole area looked deserted and Hotel Mara seemed to be the only hotel being open at this time. The hotel is situated between the railway and the sea. The trains are well audible even though... More

Large rooms that were clean - our room had a large balcony that provided some ocean view. Hotel staff are very friendly and very helpful. The restaurant is 'okay' - nothing exceptional in any way, but their breakfast provided a bit more variety than most other hotels we stayed at during our Italy trip. The food there may be 'okay'...

I stayed at this hotel just outside Ortona in September. You could tell it was after the "busy season" as they were starting to clear things away for the winter. Room was very clean and well-appointed, minus the tube TV ;-) The view of the beach from my 3rd floor room was utterly spectacular. Only complaint was the hotel didn't... More

My husband and I stayed here while visiting Canadian battle sites in the area. The room we had overlooked the ocean and was immaculate. The service was great with very helpful staff not only recommending a restaurant for dinner, but making the reservation and ensuring a wonderful evening. A great find!

This beachside hotel is a bit out of anything that can be considered a city, but is in a wonderful spot on the sea. Rooms are regular looking but most have great views. There are two buildings side by side.

I traveled to Hotel Mara with my husband who was attending a conference at the hotel. Needless to say, I was on my own quite a bit and had plenty of time to explore the hotel and take advantage of the amenities. The beach area is unbelieveably gorgeous with soft white sand. This was quite a surprise from the traditional... More

“Book the superior sea facing room-it's a lovely view. A train track is across the street, so street side rooms would hear train noise.”

“Some might consider this a bit overpriced unless you happen upon a sale. Staff spoke English well enough to help us and they were very helpful. Restaurant food was okay but portions were large.”

“Ask for the beach view. This side of the hotel is also better because the other side faces the street, and just beyond that is the "bullet train", which is quite loud. I even had to close my balcony doors because it would wake me up when going by.”
