“Nice hotel, friendly staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2012

The Luna Convento is a nice hotel and our room was very good. Spacious, comfortable, with soundproof windows, good bathroom. Only the bathtube was tiny and must be careful during shower to dont slip and fall. The swimming pool and the access to the sea is fantastic and well supported by the staff. The staff is very helpful, friendly and efficient. A shame the WiFI works only in the central patio and restaurant. The location is great although walking from there to the comercial center is a bit tricky due to very narrow street and traffic with absolutely NO sidewalks. The price is a bit above average but dont hurts.

Room Tip: Our room was #16 and we did like it.

We stayed three nights at the end of our 16 days in Italy. It was the perfect place to relax, unwind, and just soak up the rarefied air of the Amalfi coast.

Our driver dropped us off at the door. We were warmly welcomed and checked right in to our room with the most amazing view ever! The balcony was our favorite place to hang out. It was a quick walk down the hill to the waterfront, restaurants and shopping.

We took a boat tour (see separate review for Amalfi boats to Capri) from the pier. The pool was across the street and down 40+ stair steps, but the view, and the service that Pepe provided were more than worth it. You can swim right off a ladder from the pool deck into the crystal blue of the med. It doesn't get any better! I feel bad I can't remember the bartender's name. He served us wine in the courtyard each night. It was very warm and he was decked out in formal coat and tie. He was charming in spite of it! The desk managers were very helpful with advice and storing our bags on our last day after checkout so we could take the bus up to tour Ravello before our driver came back to take us to Naples for our flight.

Being a former convent, the rooms are a bit stark (all white), but it worked for us! We laughed that it was the best view we'd ever had from a shower! Our only suggestion was for them to upgrade the wi-fi to be available in the rooms instead of just in the courtyard. Maybe they're trying to get us offline and focused on relaxing hmmm....

I would stay at Luna Convento again unless I decide to rent a villa in Ravello!

Bravo Team Luna Convento! Grazie Mille

In June 2011, we travelled to Italy to book our wedding reception. The Luna Convento was our first appointment and we fell in love with it. Needless to say we cancelled all other appointments!
Our wedding was in June this year and I cannot speak highly enough of the management, staff and organisation of the hotel. Salvadore and Andrea were fantastic and nothing was too much trouble. The food on the day (from the canapés to the evening dinner) was amazing, our guests could not speak highly enough about it. We had the canapes in the cloister, with a perfect mix of light snacks. Our reception dinner was then in the Tower, which is such a beautiful setting with fantastic views. The food was amazing, just the right amount and the home made lemon cake from the local Lemon trees was lovely. After the meal we had music and dancing, they even let us extend the finishing time by an hour - we really could not have asked/wished for more of our day.
We stayed in the Tower room which we would recommend to anyone, the pool and sea access is fantastic.
We thank everyone at the Luna for making our day so special. Would highly recommend for anyone thinking of getting married there.
We will see you next June when we return for our anniversary!

Maybe we lucked out buy we found the service to be impeccable. We booked a room in January or February and they confirmed an off-peak rate at that time, and held to it. They facilitated retrieving a camera that fell out of my pocket in the car we took from Sorrento, took care of laundry, and I swear we ended up in a suite as our room was huge and the view from the balcony thrilling. The bathroom was acceptable but the hotel really showed its age there, as it did with the valiant but borderline AC units, one of which leaked a ton of water once shut off in the a.m. The pool is a great spot, but a salt water pool which is not the same swimming experience, really only good to cool off with. Loved diving into the sea and watching the hotel men pull up a massive octopus which presumably was served for dinner later. Strong breakfast but not unhappy to have eaten dinner elsewhere. Overall, met expectations, would have liked better bedding for the price. PS Transportation around the Amalfi coast is a nightmare. The driver provided by Luna Convento was far better than our incoming driver, but a bus trip on a summer weekend sounded unpalatable and driving yourself is suicidal, leaving us with no good options. One of the most picturesque hotel locations I've ever seen much less stayed in, and worth the trouble IMO.

We arrived at the airport and were met by the hotel driver who carried bags and made us feel very welcome. Lunch on the terrace and a swim in the pool. We still have a week to go and already want to come back. It is truly beautiful here

Beautiful location, but the service is lacking. They did not tell us that the hotel restaurant would be completely overtaken by a wedding and closed to guests. The hotel has no real bar in which to hang out and the only place with a good view in which to watch the town or sunset is the restaurant but it was closed because of the wedding. The woman in reception was cold and failed to provide the typical information offered guests in other hotels we visited. She reminded me of the crabby nuns from catholic school, which is perhaps fitting as this was once a convent. The pool location is lovely but there is no real pool service and the restaurant near the pool closes between lunch and dinner. For a great meal try Eolo which is down the street from hotel
Luna.

We recently stayed at the hotel after spending 3 wonderful days in Rome. From the time we arrived we felt so at home & it was a great start to our Amalfi experience. The hotel is so well located & lovely to be able to have a short stroll into Amalfi for shopping, lunch or dinner. The staff were lovely and very accommodating. A special thank you to Mauritzio, the barman, who went beyond the call to chat & tell us about the local environs etc. He was a very proud Amalfian & looked after us very well. We also did the walk to Ravello from Atrani, how amazing was that & one of the highlights of our trip. It's not for the faint hearted but you can take your time and the view back down to the village and to the sea is amazing. It was a Sunday & when we arrived in Ravello we could hear the singing come from the church in the village square. The locals kids were making their First Holy Communion. At the end of Mass they all gathered in the village square, dressed beautifully as only the Italians do & all so proud of their kids & family.
