Positive Reviews

Elegance and Opulence Redefined.

The hotel is elegantly decorated with luxury reflecting at every corner. Great location, good service, fabulous rooms and friendly staff fuses together to give you an experience. The newly renovated hotel is done beautifully with beautiful chandeliers, rich brocades and 19th-Century portraits.

Well-appointed and Spacious Rooms.

A sophisticated pallet of colours grace the very spacious rooms, which is loved by guests. Travellers loved the big size of bed and luxurious beddings, making sleep-time a wonderful experience and stay memorable. Fantastic views of river and city are another feather to the cap.

Above and Beyond Service.

The well-trained staff ensures that excellent service is provided to guests. The staff has an eye-for-detail and very attentive to guests needs. From helping with quick check-in to providing beach towels to beach-bound guests, the staff proves that hotel is customer-centric.

Negative Reviews

Lack of Swimming Pool and Spa.

Some guests felt that being a 5-star property, Maria Cristina could have added swimming pool and spa in its premises. Guests are surprised with the absence of indoor pool, however the close proximity to beaches more than makes up for it.

Intermittent Wi-Fi.

Though most of the guests loved the free Wi-Fi, connectivity was not very good. Staying connected is an issue and it is a little annoying to connect to Wi-Fi time and again.

Some Minor Issues.

A few minor issues reported by guests include lack of information regarding facilities, absence of door between bath and toilet and thin walls. However, such issues did not affect the otherwise memorable stay at hotel which compels guests to come back again.
