These twin rooms come with a partial sea view. There’s a balcony for that extra bit of space. You’ll have 1 extra bed in the bedroom. And air-conditioning is available from 15th June to 15th September.
Stayed for week towards the end of October with a group. At first glance it was clean and tidy. We found the staff always professional, courteous and helpful. However, the rooms left a lot to be desired. The bed was so hard it was almost painful to sleep on. We had to enhance the very thin bedding with two single blankets used sideways which was very unsatisfactory. The bathroom towels were clean but of some sort of thin non- absorbent tea cloth type material. What ever happened to soft fluffy towels - totally unacceptable. We had an infestation of ants which was dealt with by the end of the day. The TV only had one English speaking channel - CCN News!! We could not make the aircon work at all. However we have to say the cleaner did an excellent job every single day.
One of the things we look forward to on holiday is good food. We were badly let down. Breakfast was repetitious and limited.The main part was the cold continental style with one lonely dish of scrambled eggs on a warming plate without a cover. Tea and coffee were plentiful.
At breakfast we had to choose our evening meal from an extremely restricted menu. We should have had a choice of at least three each of starters, mains and desserts but we didn't. The best dish was the soup. The main courses were awful. As an example I chose pork fillet. When it arrived on a cold plate, it had been beaten until it could almost be seen through and then fried in bread crumbs. I waited for a side plate of the usual vegetables. When it arrived it consisted of chopped lettuce and radish. There were no hot vegetables, sauce of any description or potatoes - not even chips! This was absolutely unacceptable. The dessert was a 'take it or leave it' slice of some sort of cake. There was no choice. It was obvious the staff were embarrassed because they delivered it and ran !!
This is absolutely not a 4 star - it might just about make a 2.
It was very clear it was the end of the season and we were the last guests. Some restaurants in the village were closing. Some had completely packed up before we left. The immediate area had little to offer except the beach.
The hotel should have operated properly until the last day.We will not be visiting this hotel ever again.More
We spent a week here at the end of October as part of a package holiday. The hotel is ideally situated right on the coast but to see any of the local sights you will need to travel along narrow, winding and hilly roads which take a lot longer than you mght anticipate. We arrived as the hotel was preparing to shut down for the winter, as a consequence we felt we had something of a rough deal in particular regarding the food. Breakfast was uninspired - considering Maiori is in the middle of a fruit-growing area we were served up tinned peaches and prunes, occasionally tinned pears too. The bread rolls were good but lacked any variety. The evening meal had to be selected at breakfast. There was always a soup and a pasta option (the best in our opinion). The main course included a meat, a fish and a vegetarian option but the portions were minuscule and the vegetables unpalatable (one evening we were given a teaspoon of some green sludge which was supposed to be endive). One evening we had fun counting the number of chips - the number ranged from a paltry 5 to a maximum of 9. On the final night the meat was "mixed beef" which turned out to be ... pork slices!! Plates were invariably cold and so the meals were at best luke warm. Previous reviews suggested guests had been given an option of 3 puds, we were not. We were usually presented with some small slice of 'cake,' those with dietary restrictions were given fruit. There was plentiful red wine (white had to be requested) at no extra cost but it was local and a rather rough table wine. Better wine was offered but at a cost. Tea or coffee had to be taken at the bar, it took several days before we realised we did not have to pay for this after the evening meal (it was chargeable at other times). Bar drinks were not cheap. The rooms were OK but dated (the mixed geometric patterns of the bathroom tiles were optically challenging!) and the towels were like tea-towels (thin cotton) a million miles away from the fluffy terry towels you would expect. We, like several others, had an infestation of tiny ants. The beds were rock hard and we had just a sheet and covering blanket - fine in the summer sun but not in late October. Some staff could be surly - hardly surprising I suppose considering most were to be laid-off over the winter. We had a side-room which gave a very restricted view of the sea. We had great exectations of the hotel having read previous reviews, I cannot beieve we were staying at the same hotel. We will not be going back.More
The most wonderful Holiday
We stayed here as a family in August 2015 and had the most wonderful holiday. The hotel is clean , rooms were spacious and the staff were the best I have come across particularly the bar staff and the restaurant staff. The food was superb. We only spoke a few words of Italian but everywhere we attempting to speak we would normally have a wonderful lesson which meant we had a growing repertoire of words and phrases. We loved the hotel and area so much we have booked to go back in August 2016, just the two of us this time. We are so much looking forward to our stay and hope to meet up with staff that we had such a good time with last year. All staff should be congratulated on how welcome they made us feel. We can't wait to come back... :-)More
The quiet side of Amalfi Coast
We spent an October week in the town of Maiori, about 20 minutes south of the bustle of Amalfi town on the beautiful Amalfi coast. In season, I'm sure there is lots of action here but it still is a "heart capturer." Pietra di Luna is more pensione than hotel...the rooms are functional with king beds, nice bathrooms, balconies that often overlook the sea. The hotel was very clean and both indoor and outdoor eating were options. The hotel staff is a seasoned group and accommodated our every need. Breakfast buffet or made to order...Luigi was available for us. All front desk personnel and the 8AM-midnight bartenders speak and understand English with proficiency. Hotel is across street from beach and Maiori is a great town for small eateries, great shops (especially Italian shoes) and lots of walks and hikes. If you are looking for luxury, this is not your place; if you seek comfort and attentive help, spend some time at Pietra di Luna. (Caution and told to management: The beds are rock hard and need cushion tops...my hips and back ached for a week after departure.)More
Great 70s Style hotel - But !!!
My wife and I stayed here in October for 10 nights. A very 70s style hotel in a lovely area on the Amalfi coast. Maid service excellent, Staff in general very good and will do anything to help you. Room was fine, bed was abit hard so they fitted a mattress topper to make it abit softer which was fine. The area is full of bars and restaurants which is great of a night time to walk around and enjoy the local area. The only bad point and it has to be mentioned is the food !!!, breakfast was fine, usual stuff you get abroad , continental style which was adequate. The evening meal however was terrible.......we were half board and had about 4-5 evening meals which were cold or at best tepid and the quality of the meals were very poor. We did get one night when the pasta was ok but the Lamb dish was so tough and over cooked, turkey another night which was so so, cold again, another night my wife asked for the cheese main course ???? which was about 4 or 5 pieces of cheese with a few grapes scattered on the plate and 3 lumps of Parmesan !!! not grated or shaved pieces just lumps. No crackers or butter. The American tourists also asked for the is on the next table and there faces were not happy. We ate out in the evening for the rest of our stay and didn't bother with the hotel meals as did a good few more we talked to. There's no way there was a chef in the kitchen turning food out like that, no professional chef would let that low quality of food go to a table.
All in all a nice hotel in general but only go there for bed & breakfast . Use the local restaurants and bars for your evening meals and you will be fine. Also outdoor pool is a decent size but freezing late in the season. Star rating for this hotel in my opinion is 3 stars max.More
