We booked this as our last night after a long train ride from Sorrento to Naples and then Naples to Rome. After looking around in the murderous heat of Rome at the sites the same day we were looking forward to our prearranged hotel shuttle from the airport train station from Rome airport to the seaside. I talked to the hotel when booking and had arranged shuttle pickup and then drop off the next day for 7.50 euros per person each way . I was given a phone number and told I could text contact just before leaving Rome by texting so I would not have to make an expensive call. I did what I was told and no reply from anyone. Once we got to the airport train station still no reply. I finally made the expensive call three times cause they would not text me back as instructed. We were hot, tired and irritated only to be finally told after all that to take a cab for 15 Euros which was not it was 20 euros set price as the shuttle drivers were not available. Not Impressed!!! I had booked a twin bed room with a view of the sea which was confirmed ahead. When we got to our room it was a small double with no view only from the tiny balcony on the side of the building. When I went back down to complain there was no one in sight to help and no one for the rest of the night. NO one spoke English to be able to ask where the manager was for the hotel. The door was broken to the patio as were several doors we noted. We were hungry and nothing was open at 630 pm We found the grocery store a few blocks away and I swear the whole village was there instead. We found something open at 7 and had a light meal watching the sunset. The beach was nice at first glance with soft brown sand. There are a series of black rock reefs. Up close the water was dirty with garbage and smelled and I got bit by something in the brief time in the water to cool down. the itchy tormenting bites took a week and half to go away, The abandoned streets soon came to life and a massive beach party started at around 8 pm and this was a Monday night not the weekend. it went till 4 am and we had a three hour airport wait and a 12 hour flight ahead of us in just a few hours. I could hear the music and partying through ear plugs. It was so loud with the noise coming in through the broken door too. Breakfast the next day was uneatable. Old bread flaking and falling apart and old pastry tasted terrible. Sour yogurt and rotten apples. There was processed cheese slices and something that looked like cured meat slices. The juice box was the only tasty thing for breakfast. Never again would I ever stay here. Save the cab fare of 40 Euros, the extra drive and stay in Rome before your flight or try somewhere else ??
