We stayed for three nights at Hotel Maga Circe. The hotel has a beautiful ocean front location without any roads or other obstructions between the hotel and the sea.
The hotel has its own small beach, and also a large salt water swimming pool. Pool towels are available, and there are plenty of sun beds and umbrellas available at the pool area. The pool area was very beautiful, and there is a pool bar for drinks and lighter snacks. It is strange though that drinks are more expensive at the pool bar than in the restaurant that is situated just adjacent to the pool bar (for instance a cup of coffee costs 3€ at the pool bar and only 2€ in the restaurant).
The restaurant has a lovely roofed outdoor seating area. If you do not choose the chef's menu, the menu is the same for lunch and dinner. We would have loved to have had some more choices of lighter lunches available, but the meals served were tasty and service was good and prompt. The breakfast was very good and had a good selection to choose from, we especially enjoyed the freshly baked croissants!
The view from the balcony in our room was stunning, there is something so serene being able to sit on the balcony and have an unobstructed view of the sea. The room was of a good size with comfortable beds. The room overall was in need of an update and some care. For instance, the light fixtures in our room looked like beautiful chandeliers, but with low energy light bulbs it does not look so pretty anymore. The furniture in the room was quite strange with three more or less uncomfortable "table" chairs and a small desk (no comfy chairs for relaxing in).
The bathroom was very small and in need of renovation, the shower door was very hard to close and the shower floor (beneath the shower mat) was stained.
There is a wifi available at the hotel for a charge of 5€ per device for 24 hours. This will mount up to quite a lot of money if you want to connect both your smart phone and computer. But be sure to check the range of the network before buying a code for the wifi, we did not have coverage for the wifi in our room, which meant we had to sit in the lobby or in a chair by the elevator in order to use the internet! This is not really acceptable when you pay quite a lot for an internet connection. Since the hotel seem to have many foreign guests, it would be courteous to have a wifi that works in all rooms and that is included in the room rate. Nowadays a good Internet connection is expected at hotels with this standard.

Our hotel lies in a quiet, residential area, at the foot of the Circeo promontory and not far from the famous sandy beach of San Felice.

The rooms of our hotel offer a breathtaking view: they are all overlooking the promontory or the sea. Well furnished and comfortable, they are equipped with TV, mini-bar and air conditioning; many rooms even have a panoramic balcony.
