La Locanda delle Donne Monache
Ranked #3 of 15 Hotels in Maratea
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 August 2013

Paradise.This is a beautiful family run hotel in a unique location with the friendliest and most competent staff I have had the pleasure of encountering. The swimming pool has the most stunning views - medieval Maratea below, mountains and the statue of Jesus with arms outstretched above. Service is excellent, food is delicious with an array of very good wines to accompany any selection from the menu. We wanted a quiet,chilled week and the Locanda is perfect for that. Don't go if you are seeking the wild night life, in fact don't go to Maratea if that is your bag as this is a place for lazy strolling in the piazza - although you can watch any number of musical events in the main square which are free and a great reminder of the central role of the family in Italy, with audiences composed of young and old alike singing along. If you want to go the beach there is a free service provided by the hotel which gives you 2 chairs and an umbrella in a perfect little secluded beach area. I would recommend La Locanda to anyone seeking a chilled, peaceful time. You can explore the coastline as well as the mountains above which are dramatic with lovely old towns and villages. Enjoy!.

We were booked in for 4 nights. We checked out after two. The hotel was very cute and beautifully decorated, but it was small and we felt cramped. We paid a bit extra for the superior room, but it was still tiny. We had a tiny balcony, not big enough to sit out with a drink. The bathroom was tired and basic. The toiletries were poor for a boutique hotel. The tv didn't work either.
The views are stunning and the pool is in a super spot.This area too is smaller than you think. The beach is a 20 min mini bus ride away and once you are there, you don't get collected until 5 pm. It's gorgeous, but there is just one small beach shack serving very basic foods. More than one day on this beach would have bored me.
The village the hotel is in is very remote and there were a few shops and places to eat. Easily done in one evening. It would be perfect if you truly wanted to do nothing. We wanted a relaxing holiday but ended up moving on to prevent boredom. We were also charged for 3 nights when we checked out after 2.

Welcoming, characterful and luxurious. We enjoyed our stay immensely! It's a beautiful building which retains real original charm, and yet manages to feel sophisticated and current. The setting is really special - the views from the pool are gorgeous, and there are so many beautiful little corners in the building and gardens where you can relax with a drink. But above all it's the staff that are superb. We've never stayed anywhere where we were better looked after - everyone was genuinely charming and we were really impressed. We liked it so much we stayed am extra night!

This was such a unique and enjoyable place to stay in. The food in the restaurant was delicious and had local flare. We had 4 nights in a gorgeous room with sweeping views to the village and the towering mountains above. The staff spoke english fluently and were very warm and accomodating. From the hotel it is walking distance to the maze of cobblestone alleys and piazza that comes to life in the evening. Such a great place to unwind and enjoy the scenic area of Maratea.

Beautiful hotel, location is perfect, the views are breathtaking, service is 5 star. The hotel has a great pool if you decide not to go to the beach. Outside of the restaurant is a great location for drinks and small bites!

The rooms were authentic and unfortunately the bed as well. If you head to Maratea this is the place to stay.

We spent 5 nights at La Locanda delle Donne Monache as part of our 2 centre honeymoon in Italy in May 2013. It was a perfect corner of paradise - location, location, location! What a fantastic hotel in a superb setting.
From the moment we arrived the staff were friendly, professional and attentive always eager to help and make recommendations. We ate at the restaurant twice and found the food was delicious and the service subtle and unobtrusive yet always there in the background. The have a really good wine list and the staff were knowledgable about both the menu and the wine.
Our room was really spacious with stunning views and we really felt like we were spoiled by the staff at La Locanda. The pool area and terrace was our favourite spot although the hotel garden is also tranquil and lush.

Maratea is a hidden gem which we hadn't even heard of before booking our honeymoon but we will definitely return.

Room Tip: We had a suite at the top of the building which had a private terrace and stunning views.
