Spiaggia di Serapo, Gaeta, Lazio, 04024, Italy
Good value for the money
I’d like to thank hotel Serapo for the good time spent in Gaeta.
First of all, I will note its successful location: on the one hand it is in immediate proximity from a beach, on the other hand it is constructed directly at a mountain Monte Orlando foot, not to visit which, if you are in Gaeta, would be, at least, strange. Also the city center is just 15-20 minutes by foot. Walking along a beach it is possible to find some small restaurants with excellent kitchen and reasonable prices. Also there are several food shops nearby (within 15 minutes on foot at least 3 of them, nice pasticceria and the shop trading technique where it is possible to buy a Wind Sim-card or to pop up your phone balance.
The bus from Formia does a stop near the hotel, it’s quite convenient too.
Our rooms were quite good. The size of rooms was quite standard, it was light, very clean, with good convenient beds, balconies, capacious cases, and even with a window in a bathroom However, it was not a sea-view room, it was overlooking a courtyard and a mountain so there was any smells from kitchen reached sometime.
The hotel personnel were very kind and friendly. At arrival we were have shown the way to our rooms, and were helped to take our suitcases into them. They answered to all my hundred questions patiently, gave advice about nearest shops and restaurants when it was required.
About a food. A breakfast is quite poor. Bread, butter, jam, croissants, some fruits, muesli, tea and coffee. That was enough for me, but some people were really disappointed.
In the restaurant of the hotel it is possible to take a supper (25 euro in September 2010) The choice is good and all is tasty. You can order A la Cart as well.
Well, finally about the beach. For me, there was no news that sun beds and umbrellas on the beach for an additional fee. Entrance to the beach, use of changing rooms, toilets and showers are free, but beach equipment must be paid. Cost 5 euros for sunbed and 7 euros for parasol a day (summer 2010).
There is a Wi-fi in the lobby of the hotel. And it works, which is nice - for free.
Good value for the money.
Quiet hotel with a nice view
This hotel has a nice location, behind the hill of the old town, with a nice view over the beach (private beach for guests) and the sea, but looks a bit "oldie" in its furnitures, both in the common and private areas.
There is A/C but it didn't work when we stayed there. Rooms are pretty spacious, comfortable, most of them with balcony.
More like a (bad) dorm than a hotel
GREAT location and GREAT view IF you get the right room. The right room? They are like OLD dorm rooms. The shower was not intended for anyone over 100-pounds. And if you get a room with a great view, don't plan on sleeping. The beach disco across the street in open till 3 AM. Spend extra $$ and go down the street 10-minutes to Aenea's Landing. You'll be glad you did.
Unique Quality: Great bartender and strong drinks.

The front stalls at Gaeta
I didn't stay here but I definitely mingled with many of the guests of this magnificent hotel which occupies a prime position on the beach at Serapo. I hired chairs and umbrellas and used their change facilities and had an altogether great time on my daily trips to the beach.
Business people often say that the most important part of their business can be summed up in three words............position, position, position............and the Hotel Serapo has this hands down. It seemed to me that most of the rooms would have a great view over the beach and the beautiful Mediterranean while only being a hop skip and a jump to the town centre and some great shopping opportunities.
I'm planning to visit Gaeta from 03 of June 2004. Is sea warm enough to swim at this time? Are there taxi from train station to town (hotel Serapo)? Any details on hotel serapo?
