“Wonderful hotel by perfect beach.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2010

Stayed here the first week of july and liked it a lot. The rooms are maybe a bit small and the beds are as hard as in any italian three-star hotel, but that almost goes without saying. Shower on the really small side, but other than that the bathroom was nice and clean.

Flat screen television and air condition in room. Also we found out that you could borrow an internet cable to hook up your laptop (free of charge), which was very appreciated since Sperlonga didn't seem to have any internet cafés.

Balcony with sea view absolutely worth the extra money. Very nice reception staff. Breakfast a bit boring, but quite alright. Sunbeds and unbrella on the beach included and the water was wonderful. Probably the best Italian beach I've been to (that includes Amalfi, Positano, Tropea, Alghero).

Sperlonga was just perfect size-wise. And in the beginning of july the beach was not overcrowded other than on saturday and sunday.

Nice family hotel. It has been renovated so the main lobbly and restaurant are very pretty with amazing views of the sea and the nearby coast. The sunset is breathtaking.
The service is good, and if you do half board and have small children the staff really go out of their way to make them feel welcome. We had a baby with us and the chef made vegetalbe soup (with all the veggies ground up) for her every day and allowed us to go into the restaurant 30min before it opened so the baby could be fed in a calm setting.

The rooms are kind of small, I didn't like that, but there's airconditioning, a fridge, a TV, and we had a balcony with a wonderful sea view so all in all it was fine. There's a private beach in front of the hotel and you get your own spot with chairs and everything. The beach is not very big but the water is amazingly blue and very shallow so even babies can enjoy crawling around in the water without too many risks. If you wade out far enough it does eventually get deep but very gradually so it's good for all ages.

The food in the restaurant was classic italian cuisine with some variety. Breakfast was a little scarce, no English breakfast available, but yummy enough if you like continental breakfast.

The hotel has a parking and is right in front of the main bus stop so easy to reach in any way. It is walking distance from other seafront restaurants and a merry-go-round for kids and also not far from the mian town, which is lovely but quite a trek uphill.

The Amyclae Hotel is a quiet little structure on the Sperlonga beach, two hours from Rome. It is not a luxurious place and my one negative note is that the food is edible but nothing to write home abour. Breakfast better: cereals, cakes, bread and butter, nothing fancy but good. At dinner, the pasta was good (as always), the fish was, again, edible. This said, this hotel is one of many on the Sperlong beach, just between the main road and the sea, and I suppose some are slightly better and some are slightly worse: the place itself is utterly fantastic. The beach is clean, clear, the sea is wonderful, ideal for kids (sandy bottom and very slowly degrading). In fact in summer the beach is crowded with little children, thus the Amyclae hotel and I guess other places around are very kid-friendly. My room was on the small size but comfortable and clean, the sea view and the small balcony are a definite must. The great thing here is the light and the fact that the Amyclae (as other hotels) is directly on the beach: thus you get out of your room, go down two floors and come out on the beach with the hotel's ombrellas, sun beds etc. It takes about ten seconds. I was there in June, midweek, not too crowded. In these conditions, it is absolute paradise and total relax. You can spend hours reading or gazing at the sea or bathing in half a meter with small fish coming round your feet, or you can swim out and admire Sperlonga from the sea. Sure, you won't get the wonderful fish of the Red Sea but the water itself is stunning, and you are two hours from Rome. If you are looking also for a bit of life, you can climb uphill and visit the beautiful, adorable Sperlonga: the ancient center of this small town on the cliff is ten minutes walking from the beach hotels, and it is a maze of white washed little streets and steep stairs. You can find small shops there, and bars. Restaurants everywhere (the mozzarellas really are fantastic). The Amyclae hotel is not cheap (in June I spent 145 euros per night, half board, for a double used as a single room with sea view). And this is a three star hotel. But you pay for the location. Next time I think I may look around for another hotel just for variety's sake but this hotel is very nice all in all (but I may eat outside). No swimming pool (who needs a swimming pool with such a beach?) Free parking lot at a short distance from the hotel. One note: going down the coast towards Gaeta, a few kilometers from Sperlonga, you will find the local Archeological museum housing the gigantic sculptures found some decades ago in the "Villa di Tiberio", a villa the Roman emperor (good choice!) built right under Sperlonga, with a nice grotto for a dining room. Great little museum and absolutely fantastic archeological park with the ruins of the villa. A great way to spend a couple of hours. Antoher note: the hotel really IS accessible to wheel chairs, down to the beach (reachable by lift), and it may have a special room (I did not ask)but wheelchairs do not take kindly to sand, and the Amyclae lacks an outside terrace of its own (but the areas and the lungomare all around are wheel chair accessible).

5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2009

i stayed in this hotel for 5 nights in august on a B&B rate. It was perfect. Right on the beach and only 10min stroll into the centre of the village. Hotel itself was fab - we had a triple room with balcony facing the beach / sea. My only complaint about this hotel would be that the bathroom could not be considered luxurious but it was what was required. all in all good price for great location - i would return to this hotel.
