“Can't beat the location”
Reviewed October 26, 2013 via mobile

If you want a hotel close to Gaeta's beaches, you can't beat this. Walk right out the front door and you have 100 yds to the beach. Chair and umbrella rentals available to make for an enjoyable stay on the beach. Split Mountain and the Turks Grotto are within a 4 minute car ride. Both must sees. The Grotto closes for siesta so make sure you plan around that. The Grotto is about 200 steps down, so make sure you have appropriate shoes. Ate dinner one night in the old part of Gaeta at Masaniello. Moderate prices and good food. Mostly locals the night we were there.
The hotel room are dated, but good value based on room prices. The bathrooms on the second floor have been updated, however the third floor rooms which have the better view were not updated.

We got a great room an the top floor with a huge balcony overlooking the sea. The rooms are quite expensive but clean and functional. The breakfast was fairly extensive for a continental breakfast - do try the frozen yoghurt. The private beach is just across the road, with sunbeds and umbrellas for hire although they don't force you to hire one. The only problem was all the hawkers on the beach pestering every 2 minutes. The staff at the hotel were friendly and helpful, the hotel bar was reasonably priced and there was free use of computers in the lobby.

Saw all the bad reviews about this place. Pleasantly surprised to find that they are not true. Was staying in Aquino with the wife and my teenage daughter and came down to the seaside to stay for a couple of days in June this year. We arrived early in the morning and went down to the beach. Although it is private and you needed a pass the man on duty was very accommodating. We explained that we were checking in at midday and he had no problem with allowing us to use the facilities for the couple of hours till we checked in and came back with the pass. We were also able to check in before the alloted time.The reception staff including the "guy with glasses" on the front desk were very polite and courteous,probably helps if you try to speak their language.
The rooms were clean and the beds were quite comfortable. I liked the security shutters on all the balcony windows. The air conditioning worked a treat, so much so that the wife insisted I turn it off at night.The room the wife and I were in had a modified bathroom for disabled guests and was quite large. She also appreciated the Russian Television channels. Ok so you have to pay for the beach pass but the beach is very well kept do not have an issue with this as some appear to, we have no desire to lug around a ton of beach equipment, you get what you pay for. Lots of Restaurants within easy walking distance also shopping if you need it. Also this is an Italian resort and it was great to only hear English spoken once. The best features are it is quiet and close to a beautiful beach. Only negative was breakfast, could have done with something a bit more substantial and they have one of these automatic coffee machines (not bean to cup), which malfunctioned a lot.

Horrible, dated, run down, unfriendly, overpriced.

There aren't really words to describe this place. Toured around Italy for 5 weeks. Stayed in approx 12 hotels. This was prob the second most expensive hotel and without doubt the worst place I've ever stayed in.

Do yourself a favour.....take the money they are charging, add €10 and go 3 miles down the road to the amazing Villa Irlanda for some real luxury.

This place was probably nice for the first two weeks after it opened back in 1720.....not today!

Room Tip: run away, hide, stay at home.....just don't stay here

They have their own beach (written on the top of booking advertisement), where you have to pay the same or even bigger price for entrance, then for others. And you cann't enter without payment of about Є14 (it's only for the sunbed, and the same price for umbrella), even if you have your own umbrella and towel, at which you want to lay. So what is the point of owing the beach? I just didn't get it. That was only the first unhappy news, which we've got at the very fist day of arriving.
In that evening we also understood, that we cann't open the window and balcony, decause of the "pretty smell" from the kitchen, which was on the first floor, and we leaved on the 3rd. So your towel and other staff, which you'd like to dry after the beach will also smell fishy, porky etc.)))
Food was awful, thank we haven't stayed there for a long time.
And the rooms weren't very clean.
I won't recommend this hotel for anyone.

We turned up on spec for one night since don't usually do the beach thing.
Great location in a large town with the sea on both sides of the peninsula and an old medieval town to explore. There is also a swimming pool

Charming hotel! True continental breakfast consisting of croissants,fruit, toast,cookies, Melba toast, bagels, cereals, meat & cheese platter,yogurt, juice, coffee Americana or Italian style,all which was yummy and very satisfying.Clean,quaint, right next to a private beach & Located at the base of Monte Orlando which is a State Park located on a small but gorgeous mountain situated right behind the hotel with easy access only 5 minute walk away . Easily climbed in an hour or two on the paved trails, with GORGEOUS views of the city on the cliffsides . Monastery is right above the hotel with access to the famous Grotto of the Turks which has a stairway leading down to the breathtaking grotto. On top of Monte Orlando is the Tomb of one of Ceaser's Generals, the best preserved tomb of it's kind in Italy. If you like rock climbing, the cliffs behind the Hotel Serapo are a favorite place for that scary sport! All right these fun things just minutes from the Hotel. We went in April, still a little chilly, but I will stay again at Hotel Serapo next time I go to Italy.
