Virgilio Grand Hotel Sperlonga Reviews
Fabulous !!! Will definitely be returning. Sep 01, 2011
This was by far my favourite hotel of the Italy trip, it was a little bit more expensive than the previous hotels but we were so glad we booked it and had a chance to unwind for the last part of our trip.
On arrival our room was not ready for us as I think we were a little early - however we were kindly told by the staff that we could leave all of our bags at the front with them, take our swimming stuff out and go and enjoy the pool... it was a beautiful day, so we did.
The pool was big and not over - run with kids, yes there were a few kids but they were well behaved and not there all the time, we saw mostly couples and I would recommend this place for couples as it is very pretty and quite romantic (in fact the town in general is very family / couple orientated)
Our room was fantastic with a balcony and fridge, the bed was so comfy and soft with lots of space for two and Chris slept on the pull out bed which he seemed to have no complaints about. The bathroom was delightful - although the only thing was that the water kept spilling out every time someone had a shower and so you had to put towels down to make sure the floor didn't get soaked.
The staff were nothing short of perfect and always said hello and wanted to chat.
The lounge area was atmospheric and we saw people on their laptops here.
The restaurant looked lovely but we wanted to get out of the hotel and try the local places, breakfast had a wide variety of foods, fruits, juices; we stayed for a while.
Gym was well equipped and spa looked nice.
The beach was just a short walk and was worth going to... you can rent sun loungers for the day and also get food and drinks.
Overall I loved this place and will return when I visit Sperlonga again.
