I absolutely loved this hotel. It is run by a wonderful family: nonna; son; daughter in law; grandson - all incredibly helpful and friendly. When I arrived at the station I phoned and nonna herself came to meet me! I stayed in, what they referred to as, a dependence. This is a villa, two doors down from the hotel itself. It has a lovely garden and pool. My room had a big terrace overlooking these and I was more than content during my visit. The decor was a bit strange: flock wallpaper on the doors, (!), but the rooms themselves were extremely comfortable and spotlessly clean. The air-conditioning was very effective - the weather was pretty warm outside. The hotel is within easy walking distance of the beach, which was excellent. I would recommend Bagni Italia as the beach area with, by far, the best facilities - I didn't like Bagno Roma where I spent my first day: not clean enough for me and the loo was smelly. These little details can make or break a holiday. The hotel is very central and close to several restaurants and shops. Breakfast at Hotel Atlantico was fabulous. Warm croissants/cornetti; cakes; yoghurt; fruit; ham; cheese and excellent coffee. This is one of the nicest hotels I have stayed in for ages. Highly recommend.
