First, you are staying in a hotel near Civitavecchia? Are you taking a cruise the next day? I guess you considered spending day in Rome or elsewhere instead?

Ok, as for getting from Fiumcicino to the hotel, you have 3 general options:
1. taxi - as you have seen, it will be expensive, but has the virtue of being direct and handling your luggage
2. limo or shuttle - this will also be expensive but perhaps not as expensive as the taxi (it depends). note that you may ride share. note that all the other riders (if any) will be going to the port in Civitavecchia. see as an example of such a service.
3. train - you can take the FR1 train from the airport to Stazione Trastevere in Rome, then change trains to catch the regional train up to Civitavecchia. once in Civitavecchia, you will probably have to take a taxi back south a little ways to the hotel, as it is out the south end of town. this will be much cheaper (the train trip is surely less than 10.00 euro each one way second class, or thereabouts), and the taxi trip at the end has got to be much less than 135 euro...but you have to handle your own tickets and luggage on the two trains...

The local train solution suggested in the previous answer is certanly the cheapest and relatively comfortable, here in more details:
At the airport railway station buy directly the ticket to Civitavecchia, is around 8€ one way.
Take the train to Trastevere station (every 20 min)and change platform to take the local to Civitavecchia or any train to Pisa/Genova/Grosseto. (every 25 mins. and main trains might require an extra charge on ticket)
When in Civitavecchia you are about 2,5km north of your hotel. You might ask the Hotel to pick you up or take a taxi BUT make sure you ask in advance the cost witha a nice "Quanto costa per l'hotel Sunbay?" Now 5€ should be adeguate but expect as much as 10-12€. cest'la vìe!
Total average time from airport to Sunbay, if you dont 'miss connections: just less than2 hours.
If you have time to visit Civitavecchia before you sail it might be worthed. Ask if you need further info.

Angelo, in Rome, when a taxi takes you from the city center to a location outside the city limits, the taxi driver is able to charge you double what is on the meter, on the presumption that you should pay for his fare back - is the same true in Civitavecchia?

From the hotel's description, I am guessing that it is outside the city surprises me a little that the hotel doesn't describe how to get to the hotel except by private car...

Civitavecchia is a small town really, and the Sunbay is close and within city boundaries. however you know how provincial cities are like: better to define the fee..
Cant' tell you why Sunaby does not inform better its visitors, but really, you shuold't have problems really.
When in Civitavecchia you will see there is a vaste offer of hotels.

Travel Tips for Rome

Follow the Via Sacra...

by SirRichard

Follow the Via Sacra up the hill from the Forum and among the ruins of much later imperial villas, you can see the circular foundations of three thatched huts from the 8th century BC, one of which may even have been the home of Romulus, who, legend has it, founded the city in 753 BC. By the 5th century BC (the beginning of the Republican period), the entire area was a massive, ongoing construction site. At the other end of the Forum from the Palatine, a cluster of religious buildings rose on the Capitoline Hill, where traces of the Temple of Jupiter are still visible inside the Palazzo dei Conservatori and along the Via del Tempio di Giove. Sumptuous palaces went up along the slopes of the Palatine, while the Forum was drained by the pipes of the Cloaca Massima and developed with shopping streets, public spaces, and opulent civic buildings like the Senate, the Tribunals, and temples to various gods. The Forum became both Rome's downtown business district and an urban canvas on which successive emperors (starting in 44 BC) painted self-portraits in stone, ever more magnificent monuments to themselves.

The keyhole

by maartenw

The main picture is actually taken through the keyhole. It's in a gate in a wall at the Piazza dei Cavalieri di Malta located in Aventino. The square itself (a rare realised design by Piranesi) is a beauty on it's own. Looking through the bronze hole in the gate door gives it a true apotheosis: a perfect symmetric view of the dome of St.Peter at the end of a lane.

Don't forget to buy a Rome Pass

by cristian_chitu

Buy a Rome Pass, you'll have free tickets to all busses and subway, plus 2 free entrance at some museums.(including Galeria Borghese, Coloseum etc).
First time you come to Rome, buy a pass, validate it and take a bus to make a tour of the ancient city.
You'll have a general perspective of your objectives.

Great Pasta

by roamer61 about Antica Boheme

A fine Italian Tratoria that serves a variety of regional specialties. The food and service were good and the staff friendly, being able to speak and understand english. The ambience was quite nice and chatty. The menu provided is in a variety of languages. Part of the appeal was a mix of clientele, not just tourists, but many locals. I highly recommend this restaurant. I had Linguini with Shrimp was was delicious. The shrimps were whole, so you had to remove the meat from the tails, like miniature lobsters. Their dessert selection was good and the chocolate cake I had was excellent.

General sights

by wodensson

We did all the sites in a day easily. Feet hurt that night, but we did it all.
The colosseum was as good to view from the outside as in i thought.
Palantine hill was not all that, circus maximus is now just where people take their dogs for a dump.
Emanuelle 2nd palace was worth seeing as was Piazza del popolo, if you like old statues etc as i do anyway.
We got the bus out of town to the catacoombs one day too, that was ok.
Also went to Pompeii, which was huge, much bigger then i thought. Worth going to, but watch your back in Naples, that was as rough as rats there.
