We found this resort easily, knowing that it is beside Marco Simone Golf Course and were quickly admitted to the grounds by the gate keeper. Check in was speedy and welcoming, with an escort to our suite. The staff in reception were consistently pleasant and helpful, responding to our various needs cheerfully, including translation, researching online events, and providing suggestions.
The unit we were assigned was clean, cool and comfortable. We had a ground floor unit overlooking the golf course and enjoyed sitting on our patio to admire the tranquil view at breakfast and lunch when we were in the resort. The daily cleaning (covered apparently by the mandatory club fee) included linen changes several times a week, and was offered largely at our convenience. The unit was compact and nicely appointed and we were able to prepare a number of meals there. The queen-sized bed seemed overly firm on the first night, but we quickly adapted. There was also a pull-out sofa which we did not use in addition to an upholstered chair and coffee table in the living area. The bathroom included a Jacuzzi style bathtub with both 'fixed' and 'hand held' shower options.
There was a group dinner at a local restaurant on Sunday night, with good food, which was well priced and served in a lovely outdoor dining area. This gave us an opportunity to meet our neighbours, who came quite literally from around the world. The following day, several of the men played golf at the resort next door, although they only managed 9 holes as it was very hot.
We were notified ahead of time that this resort is located well outside of Rome, which suited us nicely. We did get into Rome several times, but also enjoyed touring the countryside and many small, pretty villages. The shuttle bus does make two trips a day to the subway for those who do not arrange for their own transportation. A number of our fellow travelers also used the train system to go on Day trips to Naples and Capri which apparently worked well.
There is a good restaurant on the grounds, with several delicious menu options available each day, and we had dinner there several nights with our new friends. There are also laundry facilities (which we did not use) and a parking garage on site. An elevator provides access to the upper floor units. We visited a nearby grocery store several times to purchase a good assortment of groceries.
We enjoyed ourselves at Carpe Diem Romana, but we were happy to have our own transportation so we could explore independently. Given the heat, we would have liked to have access to an outdoor pool - we did not bother with the indoor pool. There is Internet available, but at an extraordinary expense.
