The standard of all the staff was extremely high with a top restaurant overlooking the lake. Every business request was immediately resolved and suggestions were given for surrounding shopping, sightseeing. On arrival we enjoyed a drink at the bar with music, views, in artistic comtemporary decor. The rooms had modern facilities with good quality toiletries but the hotel has retained it's historical character. The high quality of the reception was matched by the restaurant staff. I liked the way little things like changing the table linen to match the meal added to the enjoyment.I would recommend dining at the restaurant as the price is reasonable and less than you would expect. We had a car (parking easy and have to pay small fee) but walking is easy. Would rebook this hotel.

Room Tip: We decided not to book a loft with lake view but chose a cheaper priced room. Our room was on the first floor but had still had a view of the lake. Automatic blinds and double layered drapes allowed for a peaceful sleep.

Breakfast was so good! Especially for Italy! Even the pastry was freshly made and in the evening the restaurant was exquisite..big bravo for the chef! I will definitly come back to this hotel if I am in the near of Lake Garda!!

Recently I stayed with my family for 10 nights at the Bella Riva Hotel. I am confident that Bella Riva is the best place to stay at Lago di Garda;
* entire staff is very friendly, helpful, great knowledge of the arera, good suggestions, make you feel at home
* excellent food, especially the parma ham
* beautifull terrace where you can have breakfast, lunch, dinner
* superior rooms, magnificant bathrooms
* spectaculair views at Lago di Garda
* very clean
* very quiet
* beautifull garden with lovely old trees (looks like a little park)
* great outdoor pool with enough space for every quest, wunderful and comfortable loungers, good pool service
* high standard interior design
* location, directly to Lago di Garda

I can highly recommend this 5 star hotel to other people who would like to stay at Lago di Garda. You really get value for money and I have never experienced such a nice treatment of the entire staff. They all are doing their utmost to make you feel at home (24hours a day). My family and I do thank you very much for this great experience. For sure we will come back next year! Wishing you all the best!

Bella Riva is a beautiful old style villa with top modern interieur, located in a tropical park on the lake. There are other grand hotels with a beautiful setting on lake garda, but Bella Riva was the only one with a stylish and modern touch. With only 23 rooms, it was very personal. This makes Bella Riva special and thats why we choose this hotel. It was perfect.
We had a balcony suite (nr. 303) with fantastic view to the lake and the garden/pool. It was located on the 3d floor with the best views. There were two tiny balconies, unfortunately without any chairs/table (could be improved). We had sun from morning until evening in our room. The room was modern style, had a good size and big bathroom with window to the lake. Ask for a room on the top floor, with view to the garden and lake. There are rooms facing the parking and lake with less sun.
There is a large and good breakfast buffet and eggs made to your order (free of charge). On sunny days, breakfast is on the terrasse with lovely lake view. We had dinner twice at the hotel. The menu was the same the whole week and is focused on meat with limited choices for pasta and fish. Food quality was good but not outstanding, prices for a 5 star hotel reasonable. The setting on the terrasse is very romantic at night so at least one time you should have dinner at the hotel. We had room service twice and the food came quickly and in good quality.
The pool is located in tropical park and has enough loungers and umbrellas and was never crowded. On busy days, they sometimes run out of pool towels but only for a short time. You can order snacks and drinks on the pool side all day long. The snack selection is good with salads, club sandwiches, hamburger.
We found the staff friendly, helpful and professional, nothing to complain about. They all spoke several languages.
The guests are a mix of families and couples, age between 30-70. No snobby people or wannabees . For dinner guests dressed up but no jacked or tie.
The port of Fasano is conveniently located next to the hotel, but the public boats only stop few times at Fasano. Bella Riva is located at the end of Gardone Riviera (Fasano). The town itself has only a small town center and lake promenade. Also Gardone sopra (upper town) is very small. The town was a bit disappointing and did not match our expectation for restaurants, shops, piazza, night life along the lake. Close towns like Salo or Gargango were better but on the whole west coast, there was not what we were looking for. On the east coast, the towns linkeGarda or Bardolino are exactly what we were looking for. Unfortunately they were too far away for dinner and the last ferry was at 9 pm. To get from Gardone Riviera to the east part of the lake, take the ferry for cars that run every half an hour between Toscolano-Moderno and Torri del Banco and between Limone and Malcesine . The price is 17 euro for a car and two persons and the way takes 30 minutes. Get to the port well in advance in high seasons as there are many cars and the ferry is limited to 17 vehicles. The ferry is operated from June to the end of September.
At Torri del Benaco, we took a look at the hotel “Baia dei Pini” which was also on our hotel list first due to his modern interieur and location on the lake. The hotel looked quite nice (the suites) but plays in a lower league than Bella Riva (prices are lower as well). The grounds are much smaller, close to the street and the pool very small, no park like at Bella Riva. So we would choose Bella Riva again for our next stay at lake garda.

Room Tip: top floor with view to the garden and lake

A 4 days family stay in an outsanding place. High style interior design, fantastic garden and pool area directly on the lake.
The best Bellini made by the barman Enzo.
Excellent food.
Value for money.
