My 21-year-old daughter and I stayed here for two nights. The views are incredible and the gardens and vineyards surrounding the hotel are lovely. The room was spacious and very well maintained. The breakfast was very good. But the reason I am taking the time to write a review is because we received outstanding service from Eugenio. Due to poor planning on my part, we had a bit of a problem, but Eugenio came to our rescue and resolved it for us. I would love to stay at Luna di Marza again, and I would highly recommend it to anyone who doesn't mind scheduling their time around the bus service. I think the beauty of this place more than makes up for any inconvenience due to remoteness.

Room Tip: Room number 8 has the best balcony.

Stayed at Luna di Marzo for three nights. Hotel is located in Volastra, up the hill from Manarola. Overall, it is a comfortable and decent hotel, however its location has some drawbacks.
First the positives
1) the view is amazing. On top of the hill looking out over the Mediterranean with Manarola to your left and Corniglia to your right.
2) Rooms are modern and comfortable
3) Breakfast is simple, but decent - continental breakfast with the option of scrambled eggs
4) Staff are friendly
5) Nice hikes down to Manarola and Corniglia (25 mins and 1 hour respectively)

The negatives:
All about the remoteness of the location. Volastra is a good 40min+ hike straight up hill from Manarola. There is a shuttle bus which links Manarola to Volastra - comes every half an hour or so and costs €1.80 per trip (unless you have unlimited travel included in your Cinque Terra Pass). Also, the shuttle bus stops at 7pm each night which makes dinner decisions difficult.
Currently there are no eating options in Volastra as the one restaurant in under renovation.
If you choose to eat in Manarola, the hotel manager, Eugenio will kindly drive down to pick you up when you are ready. Just make sure you let him know that you plan to eat out before you do so. Given the inconvenience of dragging Eugenio down to pick you up, one feels slightly reluctant to stay out too late (have dinner anywhere other than Manarola/have a drink after dinner)

Overall a decent hotel, but one needs to be mindful of potential inconveniences to wait for shuttle/organise pick-up from Manarola to Volastra. If you have a car then the hotel would be perfect.

My wife and I absolutely loved our stay here and we wished could have stayed a couple more nights. The location is remote and very quiet compared to the busy towns in Cinque Terre. Although we were away from everything, we were only a short 5-10 minute shuttle bus ride back down the mountain to the towns. It was actually very nice to walk down through the vineyards in the morning to get into town and only takes 20-25 minutes, We found it to be a beautiful way to kick off our day.
The is accommodation is very clean with stunning views and a very nice breakfast restaurant that overlooks the ocean. Eugene is extremely helpful and wanted us to be comfortable while we were there.

We would definitely recommend this hotel and stay here again.

We've stayed there for one week and we were delighted. There are some inconveniences - but some of them are just part of the charm of this hotel ...
In more details :
- we loved the room : very spacious, large terrace (with 2 sunbeds and a table), breathtaking views
- quiet, quiet, quiet - perfect place if you are looking for silence , rest, good sleep etc ... so quiet that in the middle of the day we felt like wispering on our terrace :)......
- decent breakfast (upon italian standards)
- friendly & helpful staff
The inconveniences :
- it is located in a small village , 3 km from Manarola (but that is actually the secret of the quietness and the spectacular views you get). We managed perfectly with the green buses (which do the route to Manarola & back every hour) ; little inconvenience is that the last bus up departs from Manarola at 10.30pm - so you need to do the dinner plans accordingly ; yet , even after 10.30pm, the bus will do the ride up for a fee of 5E/person, if you call them .
- the reception / bar of the hotel is closed at 10.30pm , and so is the only mini market in the Volastra village ; so if you stay at this hotel , make sure you have all you need for the evening (may it be water, wine, cigarettes , whatever) before going up from Manarola; there are no fridges in the room, so you cannot exactly pile a stock of water / juice / wine etc once for the whole period of your stay (unless you like to drink it at room temperature)

This hotel was great for us - and I think it can be an oasis or relaxation for many. On condition that you know what you get. If one wants a secluded, quiet and excellent view place - this is it . Being secluded has its price - but it's definately worth it....

We stayed at Luna Di Marzo for 2 nights in May and we were not disappointed!

I had read the reviews and had mixed feelings about the location of the hotel but it all worked out well. In terms of the location yes it is quite remote and up a mountain in a little town called Volastra but this was not a problem. We were able to take the bus from Manarola (although note the bus does come every one and a half hours or so) and on one of the days I even managed to walk! It was quite challenging for me as I am extremely unfit and a smoker but I made it and felt great afterwards! In any event the views are well worth any inconvenience- the hotel is clean, tranquil and great for a romantic escape to Cinque Terre.

Breakfast was more than adequate and the restaurant in the town serves really nice authentic Italian food at reasonable prices.

The manager was friendly and quite helpful.

I would definitely stay here again!
