Me and my husband stayed in this hotel in San Vincenzo last weekend during our exploration of Tuscany. The small hotel is situated by the sea, just a few steps away from the sandy beach. There are sunshades and deck chairs but I'm not sure if they are free of charge. The hotel doesn't have its own parking lot or swimming pool (there is just a public one approximately 1 km from the hotel).
The receptionists were friendly, the staff that was serving food looked a little bored, but was mainly OK. Just beware of the older lady in black (it seems like she was in charge of everything) – she was controling every move we made, was always looking mean and was very unfriendly.
The rooms were average with basic furniture (TV, mini fridge, air conditioning ...) but looked a little bit cheesy with all their nautical decor. The bathroom was really very small, but otherwise there was enough space in the room (there was also a big balcony with seaview, table and two chairs). The beds were confortable, towels changed regularly, the rooms clean.
The food was OK, nothing special except the pasta for dinner which was really good. Breakfast is very poor. The food is already devided in small portions and placed on a tray which awaits you at the table. Once there was not enough bread placed on our table and when we asked for more, they gave us old bread which was hard as stone and totally uneatable.
The things I liked best about the hotel was the location and the proximity of the beach. And the things I liked least was partly the food (old bread), no parking lot and the staff which could be far more friendly.
