The Villa Mabapa is situated on Venice Lido; it is easily reached by private water taxi or public transport, either from the train station or the airport (take them to the centre stop at Santa Maria Elisabetta Square). If you are travelling by car, you can arrive directly to the hotel via car ferry and benefit from free parking at the hotel.
"Very good Venice option"
Away from the Venice crowds; 10 min walk to a beautiful sand beach and 25 min by boat to the city. Hotel has a nice courtyard with open air terrace / restaurant. By Venice standard reasonably priced. Room was nothing special but clean and spacious.
"I wouldn't return mostly because the staff was not friendly."
Our room was small and the bathroom uncomfortable. It was dated and needed a paint job. The room had a small patio which was not swept or clean. The staff did not acknowledge us at all. We could barely get them to answer a question. They never said hello, can i help you, good morning. The information the hotel manager gave us was incorrect about the bus. We waited 45 minutes for a bus that never came to take us to the town center. No one mentioned that after a certain hour- 5pm...you had to get the bus on the hotel side of the street not the harbor side. The bartender at the outside bar did not know how to make any mixed drinks. The drinks we did receive were small and extremely expensive.
"Annette & Gary"
Lovely family run quaint hotel. Staff couldn't be more helpful. Had a really lovely break for a couple of days. Was nice to get back to the Hotel after visiting Venice as so busy. Nice area to relax in the Garden with a drink. Very nice hotel to stay and easy walk to Public Boat which is very user friendly for getting about and over to Venice.
"A nice respite from the hustle of being a tourist in Venice"
The room was clean and quaint, just comfortable enough to catch a breath, rest and gather thoughts before heading out on another adventure. Walking distance to most everything, including morning espressos and pastry, grocery store for supplies and water taxis into the nearby tourist attractions.
"Wedding Anniversary in Venice"
The hotel is a lovely, family owned, typically Italian hotel. The restaurant is excellent, both inside the hotel and particularly in the outside area. The staff are so friendly and helpful. If you are American and just want a Sheraton or Marriot then this is not for you, but if you want genuine old-fashioned, slightly faded style, comfort and service and superb surroundings, then it should be. Being located on the Lido, it is a night-time bolt-hole to get away from the crowds after a hard day's sight seeing, with beautiful views over Venice and in particular a wonderful place to watch the sunset each evening. We had a thoroughly enjoyable week!
