first the good points:
nice beautiful garden, superb location
the bad points:
the hotel seems to have seen its best days some twenty or thirty years ago....everything needs to be renovated...its actually not offering than an average 3 stars hotel...
sad....sad...
management can cope with customers needs...
hopefully the hotel will get better management soon.

I stayed in this hotel as a single traveller on my first night in Italy - for a two week trip. Although not particularly easy to find (make sure you have a map, and make sure you understand it is a little way out of town on a road that doesn't look like it's going to lead to a nice hotel), San Felice Circeo is an easy drive from Rome - even after you've flown over 24 hours and just climbed into a car without a decent night's sleep. The morning I arrived it was one of those gorgeous blue still days and when I was shown to my room - with its little balcony looking directly over the gardens and the sea - I just thought I was in heaven. The room is plain but very nice - who needs a great inside when you have a great OUTSIDE; the bathroom was very flash; the restaurant and its facilities are beautiful; the breakfast was sensational; the staff were warm and friendly - even in my somewhat dishevelled international-flyer state. The town itself is not all that flash - so I wouldn't drive to San Felice Circeo (although it has a lovely ring to it) for a few days' excitement because you won't get it - unless, of course, you want to go to this hotel and lie in the sun on your balcony and look down over the water or swim in the pool below. The only downer, for me, was having noisy guests in the room next door who weren't all that worried about whether their enjoyment of their balcony affected my enjoyment of mine; however, that was the only low point in an otherwise blissful experience and a lovely start to a two week stay in Italy - although, I could easily understand why people with lovely tann-able skin would stay there for much longer.

We had a lovely stay at this excellent hotel. It is quite expensive but the setting is stunning and the staff friendly and and helpful. Another plus was that it was very busy with mainly Italian guests which may help explain why the food in the restaurant was of such a high standard. Having said it was busy, there was more than enough space at the pool and on the terraces by the sea so thatiy did not feel crowded. Our standard room was comfortable and quiet rather than being in any way luxurious but we did have a jacuzzi bath which was a nice extra and the small balcony with sea view was lovely.

The centro storico of San Felice Circeo is a lovely little place with unusual shops, a few little restaurants and great views over the modern town and the bay below. We liked the Al Convento restaurant in a little courtyard and felt it was reasonable value for money. Visits along the coast to the sensational beach and dunes at Sabaudia and to the pretty town of Sperlonga were our favourite outings. But mainly we spent hours just sitting in the sun at La Punta Rossa looking at the sea and enjoying a very relaxing break. The hotel wasn't easy to find initiallt - you need to folllow the signs for Il Faro and just keep going uphill.

Sorry this is going to be long, but I've been to this hotel for many years (and so have my relatives before me) changing rooms, occasions etc. that I'd like to give a full description of this place, hoping it might be of help, especially to non Italian readers.
WHY MANY ROMANS LIKE IT
This is a refined hotel not for everybody. Not because it's too elegant (it's not) or too costy (it can be) but because I think you must be Italian and not too young to appreciate it. It probably does not meet international standards, but it has it's affectionate clients coming here for decades. Il Circeo is the seaside place where "pariolini" (inhabitants of a supposedely "posh" area in Rome) go for week-ends or short breaks during the sunny season (april to july, then again september) before taking their real summer holidays (july or august and if they want a seaside holliday usually go to Sardinia or other more attractive seas in Italy or abroad). This certain type of clientele loves the old mediterrenean tradition you can still feel there: the choice of lovely tiles for the floors, wonderful bathrooms and terraces, the white beaten (wrought?) iron tables and chairs in the rooms terraces where you can have breakfast overlooking the sea, the bouganvillas everywhere. We all had-rented seaside villas like that when we were young and like to find that past atmosphere at least once in a while .

DESCRIPTION
It's like an old mediterrenean villa on the sea side 2 hours south of rome. It's in a national park, quite spectacular surroundigs. Cliffs right on to the deep blu sea. ROOMS range a lot. Standards are quite small but pretty and traditional mediterrenean style(lovely tiles on floors, bathrooms and balconies which are small but have a table for two), probably below international standards of luxury though. Deluxe and suites are larger and can be very fascinating with living room, some have fire places and most have large terraces overlooking the sea with sun lounges and tables. Great bathrooms, large, often two in the suites (which also have a single room along with the master bedroom for nunnies or kid), with great tiles, jacuzzi and views. A traditional restaurant overlooking the sea (but not open air) with a lovely terrace for drinks (no meals there). An outdoor SWIMMING POOL (very decent and peaceful before school holidays, then full of children), sun beds on terraces by the sea rocks. Access to the SEA is easy from a terrace with a ladder, there is also a small stoney beach, quiet and pleasant.
The sea is deep blue, not caribbean like or sardinian, but probably the best in the Lazio Region or near Rome (but mind the fact that the best sea in Italy is usually to be found in the islands whereas near big cities can be polluted), which is why so many Romans spend their week-ends there.
The SPA also has a SMALL INDOOR SWIMMING POOL (heated). The Spa itself is ok, not super but ok. This is not truly a spa destination but a seaside destination, very good for week-ends, and if it's too cold for an outdoor swim you can still have a massage and a swim at the spa.
FOOD: I love the saturday evening buffet with lot's of fresh sea food, oysters, raw scampi, prawns, etc. Superb for Roman standards (although rome is only 20 minutes from the nearest sea, reliable fresh fish is hard to find). They also have a la carte varied menu. On sundays and during the summer lunch is also served buffet on the large terrace by the seaside. Not cheap (40 euros pp) but totally worth it in my opinion. A very professional cook provides top quality ingredients: fish, the best buffalo mozzarella (more tasty then cows milk), vegetables, fruits,pasta, etc.
APARTMENTS
They also have apartments (similar to the suites: living room, room, terrace but a bit more simple and with a kitchenette). They rent them for weeks (not days) and they are much cheaper then the rooms, with less service, good for families with children.
SERVICE Not impeccable, but once they get to know you they become very very gentle and will go a long way to meet your needs

The hotel is just on the rocks, in a gorgeous nature, full of nice smelling flowers. The rooms have sunny terraces on the bay and you feel in a paradise. Rooms are very nice and seem recently restored.
However the service is quite basic and the restaurant quite expensive with a not very very romantic athmosphere like the rest of the hotel. Better to go to the little Old Circeo village full of nice places where to eat.
