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.
Pietra di Luna in Maiori made our 2 week stay an unforgettable vacation. Perfect location to visit the Amalfi Coast. Hop on their SITA bus from Salerno to Sorrento, best scenic view ever. A very well organized and relaxing hotel, have a drink or a cappucino on a large terrace or spend a few hours at their well kept pool. If you prefer just cross the road and spend the day at the beach so close to the waves (chairs and towels included. Grazie Osvaldo). Great choice of wines and plentiful, delicious foods (forget your diets) both at breakfast and dinner, to top it off with yummy home made desserts. Exceptional friendly staff, cleanliness and facilities. Felt totally secure taking a walk at night in the area, on the lunga el mar following our dinner or returning from an event. Churches, shopping area, Friday morning market or grabbing a little lunch or pastry nearby. Weekly evening entertainment at the piano bar and dance and mingling with people from elsewhere in Europe brought much warmness amongst us. Special thanks to the director Alfonzo, Franca and reception staff, including Giusseppe, who greeting us helping us with our luggage, that warm approach of the dining room staff Antonino , Luciano, Erasmo, Raffaello, Rosaria, Silvia, and the cooks, (at the bar) Assunta Tina, and Giovanni, Luisa and Lucia (room service staff) who were all so helpful in making our holiday such a success. Looking forward to spending another stay at Pietra di Luna. Would recommend Pietra di Luna Hotel to everyone without a doubt. Mille grazie e bacci a tutti gli nuovi amici da Pietra di Luna, Maiori, Italia. Teresa e Suzanna da Montreal, Quebec.More

A lovely hotel with unobtrusive attentive staff
We stayed at this hotel for one night (having moved from another) and were unable to book the five nights we needed. The following day (Monday) we moved - we were back Tuesday as there were vacancies and the Pietra was far superior to the hotel we thought we would be in for four nights!
The hotel offers free access to its private beach opposite where towels are supplied (free) as they are at the lovely swimming pool alongside the hotel.
The breakfast buffet was typical of other hotels we stayed in and was enjoyable - even the tea, served the British way with milk.
We were fortunate enough to have a front, sea facing room which was large with a good bathroom and shower over the bath. Other side facing rooms are staggered so the sea is visible. The room was quite noisy from early morning (6a.m.), but I suspect all Maiori hotels will be as they face the main road.
Wifi was quite good for email, facebook,etc. but too slow to stream - and only available in the reception area.
If we go back to Maiori it will be this hotel for us - it was certainly better than the other one we stayed in and looked better than any other we saw.More
Just returned from a week's holiday at the Pietra Di Luna hotel. Maiori is a perfect location for a relaxing holiday on the Amalfi Coast. The Pietra Di Luna stood out as a first class hotel in every respect! Extremely friendly staff, perfect facilities & exceptional cleanliness. Also the added extra of the private beach across the road, where you are supplied with free of charge beach towels. This also applied to the pool area.
All in all we would thoroughly recommend this hotel & resort to anyone.More
Arrived yesterday after a long journey and the hotel has reached and so far surpassed my expectations. Brilliant location, lovely hotel and very welcoming staff. Will provide a more detailed review when we get home but so far we are very pleased to have chosen this hotel!More
This hotel is in an ideal location, 10 minute walk from the town of Maiori. The staff are friendly, our room was very clean. Only slight let down was quality of food and choice of meals. Not much to choose from in the evening but you were offered some pasta if you did not like what was on offer.
Large terrace to sit and watch the world go by.More
