Hotel La Coccinella
Ranked #18 of 26 Hotels in San Vincenzo
Reviewed 13 July 2015

We just needed a room for the weekend and all was booked in San Vincenzo. Luckily someone cancelled here and we enjoyed a super clean, quiet, friendly atmosphere with also a great spot on the beach included in the price.

Compliments to the owners running the hotel!

The hotel is ok. It is close to the beach (private beach for hotel residents), the rooms are clean and the breakfast is decent. BUT the staff/management is not friendly, helpful or tolerant. We stayed there for one night and we planned to spend 2 hours at the beach on the day we leave so we asked whether it is possible to leave our car in the parking lot and to go to the beach after we checked out. They told us that we cannot leave the car in the parking lot after we checked out (even though it was mostly empty) and that we have to pay a fee of 18 EUR if we want to use the private beach (even though it was even more empty than the parking lot). This is rip-off! And they told us this in a very unfriendly tone. In addition to that you have to pay for WiFi (and this in 21st century) but even worse - it does not work in your room but only in the restaurant. We cannot recommend this crappy hotel. There are much more friendly hotels with a better service in the same price category (110 EUR double).

Room Tip: Don't go to this hotel unless they change the management

After visiting the cultural hub of Tuscany, my girlfriend and I decide to spend 5 days on the beach to recover before heading down South. As a lover of the Italian Tuscan coast and having been here numerous times before we found this little family run hotel. Clean, tidy and friendly are the best ways to describe La Coccinella (The ladybug) . Greeted by the owners on our arrival and shown our room, it was small and tidy with an on suite bathroom. The long sandy beach is 4 minutes walk at most, where you can spend the day relaxing in the sun, using the sun loungers provided. The swimming is save for young and old alike and the water in September was very warm. San Vincenzo is a small seaside town and thus there is no too much to do, however, it is a great base and perfect for those wishing to relax away from the Churches, Art house and Renaissance wonder that is Tuscany.

Family run 3-star hotel, with private beach at a 4-minute walk, access and equipment included in the rate. Rate in mid July was 125 Eur per day for a double room. Only B&B service, you will find bars by the beach and a lot of restaurants in the village centre that you will reach with a 15-minute walk. In the room we found a flat-screen TV, a fridge, a safe and a very clean environment. A small pool and a free parking area complete the picture.
San Vincenzo enjoys clear waters and fine restaurants, and la Coccinella perfectly just fits in if you are looking for relax, sea and sunbathing, exactly our goal: parked the car when we arrived, and forgot it for 7 days

Room Tip: ask for a room not giving on the front entrance, you will avoid to be waken up by early check-outs

After spending a hectic week sightseeing in the heart of Tuscany we were all 'cultured up' and needed to relax for a week. La Coccinella at San Vincenzo fitted the bill and more. A small hotel with great charm just a minute's walk to a beautiful sandy beach. There is a private area on the beach with parasols and sun beds exclusively for the use of guests of La Coccinella at no cost. There are beach bars nearby. For evenning meals the Blue Marlin on the main road is a must and you get 10% discount for being a guest at La Coccinella.
There is plenty of room in the car park and there is a small pool and some nice garden areas to relax. The staff are very helpful and friendly, especially Emilie the spotty dog! The staff do not speak much English but are patient, and with lots of hand waving and bits of French and Italian we got by. A smile says welcolme in any language.
Breakfast is very nice and you can sit on the verandah in the sunshine. You can boil your eggs to your liking in a water boiler with wire egg dunkers.
We were the only English at the hotel, and I think the only English in San Vincenzo, but we met with a German couple who spoke good English. They have been to La Coccinella every year for the past 20 years! This speaks volumes in any language.
The room was modern with air conditioning and a balcony overlooking the gardens. The bathroom had a good shower. The rooms were cleaned every day and the towels changed.
San Vincenzo town is about 15 minutes walk away and is a lovely place with lots of shops, bars and restaurants. J Thomas bar serves specialist cocktails and overlooks the marina. A good place to relax in the evenning.
There is a railway station and we travelled to Rome for about 16 Euros each way per person.
I would love to stay at La Coccinella again and would definately recomend this hotel.

Room Tip: A room at the front of the hotel or overlooking the pool would be prefered.
