Reviewed May 12, 2013

We found this hotel through booking.com and tripadvisor and we were pleasantly surprised. It was good value for money. We paid around £220 for three nights in a superior room which gave us our own terrace, with a view over to Sperlonga town and the sea.
The location of the hotel is ideal. It is a ten minute stroll, along a red path and up some steps to the old town. Two minutes walk from the hotel is the beach. The Grotto of Tiberius is five minute walk in the other direction from the town.
The room was comfortable and clean. The pool and surrounding area was also very clean and well maintained. It was very quiet most of the time, so it felt like we had our own private pool.
The breakfast was also very good. Lots of choice, including some locally produced cheeses. There is also a car park from those driving. We came by train, which meant getting off the train in Fondi-Sperlonga and a twenty five euro taxi ride. You can get a bus for a euro but it drops you at the top of the old town.

Room Tip: Go for a superior room to get a terrace.

We stayed for 4 nights in a Superior room which included 2 singles (for our 8 and 10 year old) and double. The room was very large and had a beautiful balcony with views out towards the sea.

After 4 nights in Rome we had hired a car and driven the 2 hours to the beautiful coast in Sperlonga. Unfortunately the weather changed mid way through our time in Sperlonga or else we would have happily spent all the time at the beach/ by the lovely pool. While Rome had felt very busy in october, this definitely felt like end of season in Sperlonga. There were very few people on the beach and most of the town restaurants were closed on weekday evenings.

We were given a warm welcome at the hotel. At first we were surprised to be what seemed like a long way from the old town, but it was only a 10 - 15 minute walk along a lit pathway and the beach was just 5 minutes walk away. It was actually a lovely location under the hills.

Breakfast at the hotel was ok, but nothing special . We ate dinner at the hotel one night and it was fine, but it was fun to try some of the other places in the old town. Fish is fabulous in Sperlonga as is the mozarella.

We would recommend visiting
> Tiberius' cave/ museum ... just 10 minutes walk away. Lovely views from the pathway just above.
> Gaeta old town
> Pompeii : it was really interesting but it's a long way - nearly 2 hours driving each way. An alternative if going back towards Rome would be Ostia Antica - the old harbour and town, also very interesting.

Really enjoyed this hotel. The service was very good.

Yes.. the rooms are a bit small, but we were only there for 3 nights so not an issue.

We would go back for sure. Access is by foot to the main town and beaches.

We spent 4 nights here from 21/9/2012, and really enjoyed it.
The location is great, 5 minutes from a lovely beach with sea great for swimming, 10 minutes from Tiberius's Grotto and museum (must do!), and 15 minutes walk from the lovely town. Terracina and Gaeta, both well worth visiting were within 20 minutes drive.
The room, although smallish, was very comfortable, immaculate and thoroughly cleaned, with fresh towels daily. The A/C was quiet and effective. The room terrace, had cozy chairs for relaxing.
The breakfast was superb, the pool, with many loungers, very nice. Pool/beach towels were available for €1.50 each (for as long as you needed them - not per day ((this is handy if you don't want to take bulky towels in your case))).
The staff were very helpful (especially Donatella, who offered helpful information without us requesting it).
We had to leave before breakfast time on our last day, and were provided with substantial and tasty packed breakfasts.
Remember to take insect repellent - we were bitten and itchy/scratchy - it may have been time of year or maybe that it was pretty hot and humid when we were there.
A final point, by coincidence the "Sapore di Mare" annual festival was on in a piazza in the lower town for the 3 weekend nights when we were there - it was fantastic! - bands on stage (especially the Blues Others group) plus free snacks and wine! We were eating, drinking and dancing and had a great time.

Spent 11 nights half-board. I think previous reviews are a tad overly complimentary.
Positives:
Close to good beach, free Wi-fi in rooms, comfy beds, pleasant pool area with ample sun-loungers.
Negatives:
Food disappointing- very basic breakfast & dinner not up to usual Italian standards. No lounge (we had some rain and besides your room, or the reception area, there is nowhere to sit). Definitely a "fair weather" hotel.
Staff generally seem miserable (except for lady at reception) although they are obliging
Poor soundproofing in our room 301 - we could hear every word spoken in the adjoining rooms when in the bathroom. Couldn't work out why.

I have spent 6 nights in this boutique hotel. The hotel has been recently restored so everything is new, architecture is nice and perfectly fused with the surroundings, modern but typical Mediterranean. My overall impression has been to be living in a luxury home with 5 stars service. I had a Deluxe Plus room category including breakfast and dinner. Room 303 had all comforts and a nice terrace looking at Sperlonga (see pics). Common area like swimming pool is very well taken, towels are always available and if you wish you can go in their SPA anytime. Seashore is only 5 minutes walking distance and being a hotel customer you can get access to the shore at a very convenient price. If you are staying a more then 2 days I suggest to ask Lina to help you in reserving a well placed umbrella on the seashore. Quality of the sea is spectacular and also level of food. You can get a high quality fish lunch at no more then € 15.00. After a full day on the beach best time of the day has been to order an aperitif and have an hydromassage in the swimming pool, staring at a wonderful sunset on Sperlonga. Even if I was planning to eat outside sometime I must admit that quality of food in restaurant was so good that I have never done it. Service is excellent, discrete and very quick. Location of restaurant is perfect and very romantic if you are in good companion. Giuseppe, Hotel GM, takes care of all customers and he carefully checks that everything goes well without even noting him. A very good selection of wines local and national. Breakfast is superb..every morning I couldn't resist to have fresh mozzarella di bufala and cherry tomatoes and fresh tomato pizza together with a wide selection of homemade cakes. First time ever in Sperlonga but I won't miss to spend some more time at Grotta di Tiberio next year. Last but not least a good relation price-quality...Perfect place for relax and forget your hectic everyday life...

My husband and two sons, aged 11 and 16 had a three hour dinner with 2 other families in July. The food and service was impecable! I'm a picky New Yorker, and I enjoyed the professional service, and the delicious food! The restaurant in open to outdoors, so the kids could leave and walk by the pool when they were bored. We will definitely be back!!
