I recently spent 3 nights at this hotel. When researching on tripadvisor where to stay , Hotel Luna was not even on my radar. I had narrowed my choices down to Quisisana or La Sciantella when an acquaintance ( who lived in Positano for several years ) recommended Hotel Luna.
What a great recommendation this turned out to be - especially after I went and had a look at both the other hotels. To get to our hotel , you had to walk straight past Quisisana Hotel. That hotel looked impressive but was way too " Surfers Paradise " in its look for me - it was big , bold and brassy and the tables outside the entrance ( about 80 of them ) were full of people who all seemed to be out to impress each other.
I knew I had made the right choice whenI saw these beautiful grounds and gardens at the entrance of Hotel Luna. It was a beautiful walk down through these gardens , past the pool to the hotel reception area. The Hotel is located right on the cliff withthe most spectacular views. I was fortunate enough to get room 215 , which is the room ( a suite )on their website where the couple are standing on a small side balcony.
Even though the hotel is said to be 4 star , I have stayed in so called 5 star hotels that do not come anywhere near Hotel Luna. The rooms are typical of those found in hotels on the Amalfi Coast and are in keeping with the setting.
The hotel staff were very helpful , spoke good English and were always eager to assist. The pool area was good with plenty of lounges available. The position and views were sensational. Quisisana did not have great views and the pool area did not appear adequate for the number of rooms.La Scalinatella had great views although was a bit more isolated than the others. They also would not take a booking for 3 nights.
We had a great time at Hotel Luna. They arranged a private boat tour of the island for 150 Euros which was the bst 150 Euros I spent on the trip. Whilst the blue grotto was closed , that did not stop my 22 year old daughter and myself diving off our boat and swimming into it. We had the grotto to ourselves and was an experience I will never forget. I did not know that the blue grotto is often closed due to tides or winds which make the entrance very small. There is a chain that you can hold onto whilst you swim in . If you are told it is closed but are doing a private boat tour and you are able to swim about 25m , have the boat driver stop and DO IT !!!!!!
Capri was probably the highlight of my trip and that was in no small part due to Hotel Luna. I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel and would undoubtedly stay there again
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- We can be in no other place than Capris Hotel Luna. Tell me if there is another spectacle on earth which can compare with this wrote Alexandre Dumas as he gazed at the Faraglioni rocks way back in 1816. No, there isnt you instinctively want to answer, as you sit on the sweeping terrace of Hotel Luna, watching the setting sun paint the legendary sea stacks a shade of fiery red, or stroll through the gardens on a summer evening, in the silvery light of the Capri moon. Watching the sun rising over the sea, whiling away a morning lazing by the pool, relishing a delicious lunch of insalata caprese and fresh fruit, taking a spot of exercise in the panoramic fitness corner, enjoying a candlelit dinner overlooking the Faraglioni, savoring a bottle of wine with that special someone on the terrace of your room. Can you imagine a better way to spend the day? ... more less
