Sperlonga itself features a wonderful, family-oriented beach with a long expanse of soft brown sand and beautiful blue water. The Ganimede Hotel is about 5 minutes from that beach, plus another 5 minutes to the hotel's private beach area. Their private beach area features toilets, a snack bar, and tiki-hut style umbrellas. The old city of Sperlonga is definitely worth visiting. The hotel itself, though, is a bit soulless. Not that the staff isn't nice--they go about their business efficiently. But you could get more value for your money at one of the more interesting older hotels right on or across the street from the beach. Also, the design of the rooms is probably the worst I've ever seen. Both my wife and I, in separate incidents, struck a transparent bureau in the bathroom. The user interface for lights in the room is potentially the most over-engineered device I've ever seen. All that said, the restaurant in the Ganimede is a huge cut above most hotel restaurants.
