Hotel Pietra di Luna  

Set in the quiet seaside town of Maiori, the Hotel Pietra di Luna is in a fantastic position for exploring the Amalfi Coast’s attractions. The friendly staff get great reviews, too.

The Hotel Pietra di Luna makes a great holiday base – it’s just a couple of minutes’ walk from the centre of Maiori, and a 20-minute bus ride from the postcard seaside town of Amalfi. Just across the road is a tree-lined promenade that skirts the seafront. The sand-and-pebble beach lies just the other side – the hotel has its own private patch where you’ll find sunloungers and parasols.

Looks-wise, it’s a typical seaside hotel – a 5-storey whitewashed affair with stripy awnings. It’s set on a roomy sun terrace, next to a long, rectangular swimming pool and a children’s pool.

Inside, there’s a cosy bar kitted out with retro Sixties-style orange chairs and comfy light-green sofas. Dark-wood panelling, a chandelier and a corniced ceiling give it a classic air. The dining room has a similar feel, too. Breakfasts are help-yourself buffets, while evening meals are waiter service with menus of typical Italian dishes.

Lovely Place

We stopped here this July gone for a week, and I have to say, we were pleasantly surprised! Though the decor is indeed outdated, the staff are lovely, the beds comfortable, and the food edible, if a little... bizarre. I had a single room toward the back of the hotel, which, admittedly, did have the spectacular view of... some apartment blocks. However, my parents had a room at the front of the hotel, complete with a balcony and fabulous rooms. The rooms are very dated, with furniture older than me, though as stated, they are comfortable. The bathrooms are spacious, with good water pressure/heat, and well stocked with toiletries, etc. Maid service is excellent; I had one maid who, on the day I forgot to tidy anything at all, folded my night clothes up for me, placed my stuffed toy on my pillow (I may be twenty-one, but I need my home comforts), and left small sweets and treats for me. In terms of facilities and services, we were quite impressed! We arrived very late on the first night, and they provided a small supper so we didn't go hungry. Bar service was good, extending as far as the pool area. Staff were friendly, to the point where, at the end of the week, they were bringing our drinks and food without needing to order as they had remembered our tastes. The food itself was a little odd, but maybe that's because we weren't used to the Italian way of eating. Quality was somewhat hit and miss; some days were excellent, some days not so good. I personally recommend anything involving fresh fruit or veg, as it was all of a lovely quality. The hotel's position is very good; right next to a small supermarket, and a stone's throw from the rest of the town, it was ideal for getting around. Maiori itself is in a good position to getting to places such as Capri, Amalfi, and Pompeii. The only downside to the hotel, and one that I feel should definitely be mentioned, is the poor wifi. The people at reception often turned it off in the day (too expensive to run?!), and signal was poor. The best times to use it were at night, when they weren't in the habit of turning the router off. All in all, I highly recommend this hotel, for, despite its outdated decor, is, in my opinion, one of the better places to stop in Maiori for the price you pay. Comfortable, friendly, and in a prime location!More

PERFECT HOME FROM HOME

I have again just returned from a beautiful and as always memorable Holiday at the Pietra di Luna. It is now almost 18 years since my first encounter with this Hotel. My Father and i had been disappointed at not being able to stay in Sorrento as we usually have . However, the location of the Hotel and town proved to be superior in many ways. I have stayed at the Hotel at various stages of the season and have had been allocated 4 different room types. So far I have never had cause to be complain having been disappointed about the accommodation Each room has its own differing aspect and therefore its own charm. Maori having its own mix of tourist and residential features offers slightly more insight into Italian life. I still have the water colors and sketches my Father painted on our very first trip, when we were located at the side of the Hotel and subsequently mountain and coastal views. Each visit has uncovered more and more delightful finds, festivals, market and beautiful churches. However, the one steadfast aspect that remains is the gracious and welcoming attitudes of the staff at the Pietra, From the front of house, Bar staff, Waiters and Chambers maids . The Food, Facilities and location make this a perfect retreat and consistent Home from Home to return to. Many, many thanks as always to all members of staff. Phiomena , ManchesterMore

A very enjoyable stay.

Read also the other reviews - note the slightly outdated décor - my guess would be Eighties - and plumbing, and the very firm beds which actually weren't a problem. The poor wifi is an issue - only available in public areas with a router which had to be rebooted daily when the connection dropped out. Additionally note that the hotel makes a good proportion of its income from coach parties who come for a couple of nights only, fill the dining room and generally keep the place busy. The chef does a good job of providing a limited range of dishes of good quality, without anything terribly highly seasoned or exciting. The waiting staff are very efficient and friendly. Menus consist of three choices of starter, including one soup and one pasta dish; three choices of main course, usually one meat, one fish and one cheese, all served with potatoes and another vegetable; and a cake-style dessert, and/or fruit or ice cream. There is a good selection of wines at the normal inflated hotel prices. If this all sounds negative, let me add that we really did enjoy our time at the hotel and in Maiori. The facilities were well up to standard, and staff are hard-working, friendly and efficient. A special mention for the cleaners, who visit the rooms several times a day and do a great job of keeping everything spotless and providing clean linen. Having a private section of beach just across the road from the hotel is a definite plus, and both Maiori and the whole Costiera Amalfitana are wonderful and beautiful. We would definitely choose this resort and this hotel again.More

Charming hotel

Just returned from a week at this hotel. We had booked two single rooms but we were upgraded to double rooms with large balconies and side sea views. The rooms were well furnished with modern bathrooms, tv, safes and hairdriers. Bathrobes and slippers and other toiletries were provided and rooms cleaned and towels changed daily. We felt so relaxed as the staff are so helpful and friendly. Particular thanks to the bartender and our waiter! The food was lovely plenty of variety and so tasty! Maiori makes a great base for exploring the amalfi Coast. The local bus stops outside the hotel and we visited all the "must see" tourist spots and still spent time by the hotels very clean pool! Maiori is full of character and has a long sandy beach and promenade perfect for an after dinner stroll. We would be more than happy to return!More

Four stars for the location, three stars for the hotel

You can't beat the location of this hotel! It is directly across the street from the beach and within walking distance to restaurants, bars and shopping. Now for the hotel............the hotel was built in 1973 and still has that 70's feel to it. There is a small bar in the lobby, a large outdoor pool and a very nice outdoor patio to have a cocktail or espresso. Our room was a lovely corner room with an extra large balcony. The room was clean and large with beautiful tile floors. The bathroom was small and outdated but adequate. We were happy with everything until we sat on the bed, it was like sitting on cement! The mattress was so bad we had difficulty sleeping. Since we were part of a large tour group, everyone was complaining about the mattresses, it wasn't just in our room. Would love to someday come back to this hotel, but only if they replace their mattresses!More
