This was our third visit to the del Sogno. Absolutely, perfectly charming, as has been the case during all three of our visits. The staff is always so accomodating and perfectly charming and helpful, from Grazia to Celesta to Angelo to every waiter/waitress, bar hop, cleaning staff or luggage valets. Just wonderful, helpful and very interesting people to talk to and deal with on a daily basis. Our room, always the same choice, is always beautifully appointed and a true gem to lodge in for a weekly visit. The atmosphere at the hotel is truly divine, possessing absolutely quiet and hushed elegance. Other patrons are lovely and respectable and wonderfully quiet. You feel as though you have the place nearly to yourself. And then there is the marvelous chef! The food--oh! the food! We are so sad to miss the daily meal presentations of the chef's now that we are back at home! This is, I believe, what we miss the most! Every evening he came up with a marvelous Daily Menu five course meal plan--and every evening, it was just the best you could possibly ask for in this world. We must return soon, otherwise we fear we may exit this world never having tasted so delicious a meal ever again! Please, do consider the del Sogno if you are in this region. It is affordably priced, completely five star elegance, and the staff will treat you like royalty. You cannot err in chosing this property.

Room Tip: Avoid the Loggia Jr. Suite room

We recently stayed here for four nights, and it was wonderful. Very peaceful and quiet and relaxing, and would have to agree that the terrace area has to have the best view of Lake Garda. The gardens and pool area are beautiful, and the rooms and amenities fantastic. All the staff were friendly and helpful, and the food and drinks very good although a bit pricey but to be expected at a hotel of this quality.
Best suited to couples or people with older children as it is a very quiet and elegant setting.
Would highly recommend.

Room Tip: We splurged on the tower suite and it was worth it! Fabulous jacuzzi and private terrace up on the...

Bad points

Sloppy standards..... the in room info says " Restaurant is open 7.30 am - 9.30 pm" But in Italian it says " 19.30 - 21.30 "
Under keys it says " Our chamber MADE (?? ) is responsible for all the items disposed in the room "
Can anyone translate that ?
==================
There were no towels by the pool when I went late afternoon.
There were no pictures in the room ..... 5 star hotel with no pictures DUH!

How does the spa bath work?. A call to reception to ask how it works met with a " I cant help you! "
Eventually I discovered it a switch high up on the wall - why not put a label to say what it is? Or teach reception!

Bill was wrong on check out - charged Euro 120 twice for dinner!


Good points
Breakfast and dinner on terrace superb.

Next time I will stay elsewhere and just use the restaurant

At Euro 350 per night was expecting something special - Villa del Sogno fell way below my expectations.

The hotel is a little dated but well maintained and spotlessly clean.

The rooms are smallish and expensive for what you get.

The Gardone Riveria is quiet, bordering on boring

However, the service provided at this Hotel is second to none. I’ve stayed in many alleged 5 star establishments, especially in Asia, and none have provided the almost telepathic service provided here.

The staff are chatty, but courteous and always efficient and helpful.

As an example, one evening, whilst we sat on the wonderful terrace admiring the view of the Lake and Islands, a storm seemed likely. As the weather worsened the waiters unobtrusively prepared the terrace gazebo so that we could continue our meal outside and watch the subsequent storm in the dry.

We had a wonderful meal, great recommendations for wine and a bit too much cognac that night.

For three days we had breakfast, lunch and dinner here. The food is great, not too expensive and the service amazing. There seemed little point going anywhere else

You cannot help but feel truly pampered there.

Very highly recommended

A beautiful property situated on a dramatic hillside overlooking Lake Garda, to the north a glimpse of the Alps. We were there in late september (off-season), and there very few other guests at the hotel. Nevertheless the service was outstanding at the hotel, at the restaurant (where by the way we had a meal that we still talk about) and also at the spa. Breakfast on the terrace was sublime - the fact that I rhapsodize about an omelet (an omelet!) to my friends says it all, I believe.

I can only echo the favorable comments by others regarding this jewel of a property. My wife and I spent three wonderful days here in mid-October and wish we could have stayed longer. To us the resort should be rated higher than the Hotel Villa Serbelloni (also 5 stars) in Bellagio where we stayed after. Our room was awesome; the service in the restaurant was suberb; the view from the terrace balcony and from the pool area was gorgeous; the very large property was a virtual botanical garden; the people friendly and helpful; and the location well situated for day trips.

Room Tip: Finding the entrance to the property from the main road is tricky.
