We made a reservation through booking.com and took a cheaper attic room. We quickly asked to change rooms because the ceilings were so low in the bedroom and bathroom and there was only a one foot tall window near the floor. My husband felt it was claustrophobic.
The next room we got was very nice. The bathroom was clean and with fancy features in the shower stall. There is a safe in the built in wardrobe, a tv with two English channels (better than other hotels we stayed in). The breakfast gave a very large number of options to choose from. I agree with another post that the two single beds pushed together were less than ideal. I would ask for a room with a double bed.
The pool area is quite nice. After a day at the beach we got in the habit of going to the pool. There is a bar there, and the bar tender was particularly friendly and helpful. The staff all speak English well. The front desk staff offered to let us charge our iPhone on their computer because we had left our charger in Rome. Very nice people.
The hotel beach area isa little way down the beach, but it's walkable. Or you can take their shuttle van. It costs E10 to rent a set of beach chairs. That is less than if you rented from another place, prices can go as high as E30.
The town is beautiful and easy to get around without a car. We. We're very happy with Sperlonga as our relaxing part of the trip after busy Rome.
