La Posta Vecchia in Palo Laziale, Rome, Italy

On Italy's gorgeous west coast, overlooking the azure waters of the Tyrrhenian Sea, is the elegant and luxurious La Posta Vecchia. Built on the remains of an ancient Roman city in the town of Palo Laziale, this wonderfully ornate and endlessly enchanting hotel will open your heart to the wonders of Italy. Both contemporary and classically designed rooms, each unique, will delight guests with 16th and 17th century furniture, and a bright and spacious design. Fantastic views of the sea and Odescalchi Castle will take your breath away, while the Mediterranean climate will put you at ease. Imagine reclining on a chaise, cocktail in hand, after a walk down your own private beach, and you will picture a day at La Posta Vecchia.

For a wonderful morning, head to the stunning indoor pool for a dip in the warm waters and a view of the sun rising over central Italy. From here make your way to the private beach and enjoy the soft sands under your feet. Take in the salty Tyrrhenian air with an invigorating horseback ride through the surf. Or if you prefer a relaxing day, take a fabulous boat ride along the picturesque coast. For a bit of activity take in a game of tennis, or perhaps have a round of golf scheduled nearby. After experiencing the beauty of Ladispoli and the sea, make time to adventure into Rome. Only 40 minutes away, this truly fantastic city will open your eyes in wonder. Trek through the ruins of the Forum, gaze in awe over the Roman Coliseum, or enchant your soul at the Vatican. After a truly remarkable day return to La Posta Vecchia for an amazing dinner at the hotel's Michelin-starred The Cesar Restaurant. Delight your palate with fresh regional cuisine, while looking over the sea on the outdoor terrace. After a night at La Posta Vecchia you may be so taken that you will never want to leave Italy.

Wonderful location, friendly staff and good food. Expensive but worth it (suggestion for "posh" guests be nice to staff and you will have an even better time). We actually had a disaster and hotel failed to load our wedding clothes into car for wedding on the Adriatic coast next day 300 km distant. They chauffeured our clothes to us overnight. Though their fault we were delighted and appreciative with the service. Thank you.

Just loved this place. Seeking three days of rest + sun by the sea, before flying home from Rome, I carefully choose LPV. It did not disappoint. From Cinzia and her front-of-house team, to the quiet attentiveness of all the staff, they really just get hospitality right. Breakfast, vast, elegant, and peaceful, was eaten on the terrace overlooking the sea and a couple of fishermen on a jette. My days days, uneventful and idyllic, were spent moving around from my striped sun-lounge to the indoor pool. And back. And again. Sometimes, for no particular reason, I would wander, barefoot, through the refined castle-like house...happy as a clam...just taking in the ornate structure, rich in detail and history. The private little coved-beach was nice to look down at. Though I did not indulge, it was a lovely and nearly deserted spot. My corner room, upstairs, was large and beautifully appointed with a generous and lushly tiled bathroom. If you're in Rome, this is an especially pragmatic addition and counterpart to the hustle-bustle of the city. Early on the morning of my departure I went for a swim, only to look up and see Cinzia, who had been looking for me. It was still dark out. She was worried that I hadn't answered my wake up call. Need I say more? The driver had me to Rome's airport in less than forty minutes. This did not feel like a hotel, and amen to that. I will return as soon as I'm able.

Fantastic castle set in its own private huge park on the sea front. After one night it delved on me that I had read an article in the New York times something like 20 years ago about John Paul Getty's villa on the coast near Rome that was transformed into a hotel. Ah well there I was - this is it, very much in the shape that Getty made it. They have a private little roman museum underneath the hotel showing the remains of a roman villa. Stunning terrace and huge rooms. Beautiful park. The resort is a mile or so from the hotel and makes you feel like coming back to this oasis of privilege that the castle is as soon as you can. Lovely restaurant. Although you can see the hotel from the airplane when you leave Fiumicino you can't hear the planes from the hotel, but it makes it convenient for one last night before flying home. Would very gladly stay again.

I have a mixed review for La Posta Vecchia, the sister property to one of our favorite hotels, Il Pellicano. The town outside of La Posta Vecchia has a bit of a Queens, NY feel until you drive down a back ally/road to a private gated entrance with a lovely long winding drive up to the former Getty Mansion. The building is beautiful architecturally, the grounds are stunning. We felt like we were staying in a museum – it’s very historic, there is an actual Etruscan museum in the basement. Lots of old artifacts and antiques are throughout the building. We constantly got lost finding our way back to our room or to the dining room. There are many nooks and crannies and narrow stairways. My main complaint was our room. I felt like we were hidden away in an attic, like Cinderella. The bathroom had beautiful cheerful painted green tiles but the bedroom seriously needed a renovation. The carpet was worn/faded gray, the closet cabinet doors were old and rickety. The windows (small squares w/wooden closures) from the room were very tiny. I will say, the bed was comfy but that was about it. For almost $600/night it was not a great value for the room. We probably should have complained or requested to move but I believe the hotel was full so we didn’t bother as we were only staying for a couple of nights. The saving grace was the staff – helpful, lovely and they gave us excellent restaurant recommendations. One last gripe is the restaurant at dinner. Everything we ordered was a bit strange, overly ambitious and nothing tasted good. The foams and fishes were just unappetizing. Breakfast was amazing though – we enjoyed dining overlooking the sea and watching the locals fish on the jetty in front of the hotel. The buffet of pastries, savories, yogurts, green juices and homemade Nutella were amazing and possibly the best we’ve had anywhere in the world.
