Lovely hotel, good position, f....
B&B booking at Hotel San Francesco, Maiori 22 April - 02 May 2018
1. On arrival we soon realised someone else’s bathroom window looked out onto our balcony, which we were uncomfortable with but we were moved without any fuss to a much better room.
2. We found no information about the hotel in our room and were told to ask at reception when we showed an interest in eating in the restaurant in the evening. Unfortunately, no one was able or willing to tell us about the menu or the cost for an evening meal. We decided to risk it thinking it wouldn’t be any more than the most expensive local restaurants. The food was delicious but it was not only more expensive but we were charged extra for every other item that came with the meal and even some things we didn’t have.
3. Bottled water was left in our room everyday. We thought with a 4* hotel this was normal and were glad to use it. However, on checking out we discovered we had been charged for it every day.
4. Worst of all, our tour operator informed us that there was a local tourist tax (which we knew about anyway) but it was only payable from 01 June - 30 September. On check-out we were charged an extra 2 euros each per day for this tax (it should only be 2 euros for a 5* hotel anyway). We tried to challenge it but were told we had to pay. I noticed the extra amount was scribbled in pencil on our bill but as you do on holiday, we paid what we were asked for to avoid an argument and get our taxi to the airport. It wasn’t until we had left I realised that although I had my bank card and till receipt, our itemised bill had disappeared (obviously hidden back under the counter)
Either the tour operator has the wrong information (but we have been visiting this part of Italy since 1986 and only pay the tax during the tourist season) or someone at the hotel is being very dishonest. We also overheard other guests being forced to pay the tax as we left the hotel.
We will go back to Italy and to this area - but not this hotel!
Luigi! What is going on? Are you correct or is the tour operator correct?
It’s not a large sum of money but the sour taste it leaves thinking we have been duped.

Great place to stay
We stayed for 2 nights and had a great room with a balcony and view. Our room was very spacious, just like the pictures. Lovely lounge area. Did not use dining room expect for included breakfast, which was nice. Location was great for getting the "local bus" which was within a block. No parking issues as there was underground parking. There is a terrace, but too cool when we were there. There is a beach area for hotel guess, but due to time of year, it was not open. Great place from which to tour the Amalfi coast from as you are one end of it.

Room with a view
The hotel was across the street from a beach and we had a great view from our balcony. The room was small but ok.The bathroom was strange it had a jacuzzi tub with a hand held shower and no shower curtain so when you showered you got the floor really wet. Meals were included . I don't consider hard boiled eggs,croissants and other pastries breakfast there was no hot food. Most dinners were just ok and you had to ask for coffee or tea with your meals. I have to say the lasagna was pretty decent. This hotel would not be my first choice. They were closing up for the season and we were the last guests so that might account for the mediocre service.

Great Location for exploring A....
This hotel is clean, friendly with spacious reception and breakfast areas, both inside and out. The room was traditional decor wise and had everything we needed. The outstanding thing about it was the friendly helpful staff. Breakfast was excellent. Beach towels are available from reception and the private hotel beach bar and sun lounger area is directly opposite the hotel across the road. The sea is safe for swimming but there's also a kids pool at the bar area do you can eat lunch and supervise children swimming at the same time. From Maori we went to Ravello by bus and returned by boat from Amalfi. Tickets for the public bus can be bought in the tobacconist shop a few yards from the hotel. We were told by the shop owner that we could get to Ravello by public bus by changing at the fork in the road where it splits for Amalfi/Ravello. (Check out the fantasic delicatessen next to the tobacconist for picnic food). We decided it would have been better to have gone into Amalfi by bus then catch the tourist bus to Ravello as the public buses were very full at the cross roads where you change buses to go up to Ravello.
Salerno by public ferry is a lovely boat ride from the quay in Maori although Salerno was disappointing; just one big shopping street and nothing quaint about it.
Whilst Maori is not as pretty as Positano or Amalfi, it has its own charm as a holiday resort and is less crowded, cheaper and more relaxed than the more famous towns on the Amalfi coast.

Very nice room but horrible di....
I spent 3 nights at the Hotel San Francesco and my room was wonderful and even had a balcony with a partial view to the ocean. The room was kept very clean by the staff and the décor was average. The hotel is located across the street from the ocean but is partially behind another building so not all rooms get an ocean view but it is a very short walk to the water. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Dinner was included with my package and I was extremely disappointed in the main courses. The first night was swordfish that was so overcooked it was hard to cut and eat. It was like eating shoe leather. the second night was an unidentified meat that was tough and gristly. The third night was going to be fish but I opted out and instead went down the street to a local restaurant where I enjoyed a fabulous meal.
