Magical Chiaia di Luna
Jul 2019 • Friends
Anybody who has any knowledge of Ponza island, knows that this island is best visited by boat, which is why so many are anchored around the island and so many are available on hire.

That said, the Chiaia di Luna beach has been closed for quite a number of years now for people's safety - too high risk of land slides.

Ponza's "Half Moon Bay" beach remains one of the earth's most breath taking views and the Chiaia di Luna Hotel, poised just above it, still offers this wonderous views to its guests.

The staff and the service at this hotel are top notch and the restaurant is absolutely one of the island's best.

Chiaia di Luna Hotel offers all the services of a 4 Star hotel, even if perhaps the rooms do not exactly exude Dubai style luxery.

Ponza is special because it is still a bit beautifly laid-back - "more" would actually spoli the charm and quiet elegance of the Chiaia di Luna Hotel.

A great and highly recommended place to stay when in Ponza. The Restaurant a must, with truly high level island cuisine.

Romantic sunset!
Oct 2018 • Friends
Luna Beach is the perfect place for a romantic sunset. Unfortunately the beach is closed due to falling rocks, so you cannot climb down to the beach, but it’s just as beautiful from the top. Next time we will go by sailing boat and ancor in the bay.

Mixed feelings.
Aug 2018 • Couples
The location of the hotel was great, Ponza was great, however the Chiaia di Luna itself was not so amazing.

We did book the smart economical room, and you do get what you pay for, however the bed was two twin beds pushed together and super uncomfortable. The location of the room was a bit weird too - out of the hotel grounds facing onto the main road.

The food at the restaurant was amazing, and breakfast was also good! Not too far to walk into town either.

Some issues when checking out, we were overcharged but managed to sort it out before leaving. Some of the staff were amazing, but we did get a weird vibe from some others (we assumed it was from our limited Italian!).

All up, would love to return to Ponza but not sure if we would stay here again.

Where do I begin???
Aug 2017 • Couples
Let's start with the fact that the location(excellent ) was the only thing that I liked about this hotel.My expectations were high,as you would think when you book a 4 star hotel...
+Hotel room was clean,but it had that oooold feel,but don't expect any luxury here.
- There is no way you can get to the beach,even though the beach is literally right there(you would have to take a boat and you cannot swim or enjoy that beach because it's closed for God knows how long apparently)That's why we decided to hang by the pool for the rest of our vacation..Where do I begin here?The launch chairs(the worst I've ever seen and used)Side tables,umbrellas and towels are sooooo old,that I felt like I've travelled in time!!!!!
-the pool was like an ice cube (I understand it's August,and it's hot...but really???)
-on-site bar and restaurant.Atmosphere was great,but not food and drinks or service.
The total experience was too far from relaxing and enjoyable,would not come back there even if my stay was free.
Please,it's time to renovate this place.And what a shame to charge a fortune for a hotel where all you get is stress...ugggh

Paradise!!
Jul 2017 • Couples
This little cove is heaven on earth. We were going to take our boat around to a bunch of different coves we saw when boating around the island, but stayed anchored here all day. It's warm water, jaw dropping views of the Ponza cliffside and peacefulness make this a true paradise. This will now be my happy dream.

Beautiful beach area, its a shame it is closed. Only way to get close is by boat ... but by boat is a wonderful way to see the island.

Unbelievably bad experience
Jul 2017 • Family
We arrived at the hotel BEFORE checkin on a Sunday afternoon of July 2, 2017 around 130 pm and they were kind enough to put us in a room-but right next to their night club. We immediately reminded them that we had our 7 year old with us, asked for a room away from the club, and-instead of putting us in another room-they told us not to worry because the club would not be open during our stay. So we set our expectations for a quiet evening, walked around town, had dinner, then came back to the music vibrating throughout our room. When we objected we were told by the front desk person that there were no other options and that she was very sorry but not to worry because it would end at midnight. She also informed us that the owner had just been in the room listening to us but had walked out. My objection is that management mindlessly put a 7 year old next to the club, tried to cover up the mistake with a lie, then unprofessionally tried to wish the problem away.
Bottom line: I would not return to this hotel until the management and owner proved that they took a course in hospitality 101. And by that time I would rather just stay at a place with no 1 star reviews so as not to be a victim of their mediocrity again.

Nice view but you can't access it

It seems to be very nice place but unfortunately inaccessible :(. It is impossible to get to the beach. It should be very nice place with very nice sunset...;(

Small beach with no services
Aug 2016 • Couples
The beach is small and reachable only by boat, but there are no services or bars. We did not stay as we had no water with us to drink and no umbrella it was very hot. Its nice for a short visit but it would be uncomfortable to stay all day long without any services.
