We stayed at the Bella Riva in June 2014 and would commend it to anyone. The rates are quite expensive, but on balance are probably proportionate to the other hotels in this region.
The service and staff could not be faulted and there is a friendly welcoming atmosphere in the hotel.
It is an ideal destination for honeymoon couples, but I still couldn't be persuaded.
The rooms are well appointed and I am told they all have a Lake view, although I think some may be slightly restricted.
Our room was mid range and had a wonderful balcony with a view of the extensive and well kept gardens and also of the Lake. The only thing the room really lacked was a full length mirror; not for me you understand - the less I see of my visage the better - but for she who must be obeyed. A visual check of ones outfit involved standing on tippy toes and locking in the bathroom mirror.
But hey, if that's all there was to moan about then they did pretty well in my opinion.
As others have commented the breakfasts were outstanding, however we didn't sample dinner or lunch. From what I saw these were equally as good.
In terms of location it is pretty ideal and has a large plot including plenty of parking space (which is very unusual on Lake Garda) and a beautiful pool.
If you are going to Lake Garda then the Bella Riva should be top of the list.
Oh, one last thing; the beds are superb. I slept like a King.
