Hotel Villa Marcella
Ranked #6 of 26 Hotels in San Vincenzo
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 20 July 2014

We ended up at Villa Marcella as everything else was full. It is an old-style family hotel 50m away from the beach. A bit oldish yet clean with friendly service. No Internet, TV working sporadically... On the plus side, we had a real family room with separate bunk bed room for the kids + a huge balcony. Breakfast was pretty basic and the rooftop food nothing to rave about.

We found Marcella by happenchance and were pleasantly surprised. Bruno at the front desk was very pleasant and spoke enough English for us to settle in nicely, The room and bathroom are not large but very well kept and plenty of space for the two of us. We had a nice balcony overlooking the sea. The villa is about a 10 min,.walk from the shop and restaurant-filled pedestrian-only section of town making evening strolls and wandering very convenient. We ate dinner one night at the restaurant and had a tasty salad, pasta and a bottle of wine. Total charge was 42 euros - a reasonable price for a good meal and convenience. We opted to stay a second night to continue exploring the area,. The breakfast is just adequate - not bad, but needed better coffee and juice. (There should be no bad coffee in Italy!) At 70 euros a night in off season, this hotel is a great deal,.

We spent there just one night. After making many last minute telephone calls, we found a room. We were traveling with a 5yo child, at the telephone they sounded annoyed both when I asked them if the room (a double) was big anough for adding the child's bed, and after we agreed on the room, when I asked for directions to find them.
The room was ok, although the bathroom was quite small and old. The hotel is on the beach, but it is approx 1mile far from the center of the village. So, there is absolutely nothing close by the hotel: very quite (apart from the railway....) but no possibility to go for an evening walk for an ice-scream or similar.
But ok, this would have been still acceptable. We had the worst experience with the hotel restaurant: since it was almost dinner time when we arrived and we realized immediately that there was no restaurant in the area, we asked if it was possible to have dinner at the hotel restaurant. They said yes and asked us to choose immediately from a list (comprising 3 first courses and 3 second courses) in order not to wait at the table. We did a mistake: we did not ask for the dinner price! We are used to travel in Italy and have the half board arrangement, which is usually fine. The dinner was acceptable, although less than average. Our child had some "pasta al pomodoro" and some roast-beef with fries. They had no list of wines, so you could not check the price of the wine you were ordering. The waiters were hurrying people, because dinner time is only from 8 to 9 pm. They brought us our dessert when we still had to finish our meat.
When the day after we went to payfor the room, big surprice: they charged us 3 complete meals at fixed price: 30 euro's each. I complained, they said that they don't offer the hald board treatment for 1 nigh stays. I continued to complain, so they subtracted 5 euros for the child since we had 2 desserts (very ordinary ones...) instead of 3. We ended paying 98 euros for a dinner which was far less than average. With that price, in Italy 2 adults +1child can have dinner in a good restaurant, with a good wine. But the worst part of it is that we felt cheated. We will never go to that place again, and we absolutely do not recommend it.
