Of the four hotels we stayed at in our recent Italy trip, the Villa Del Sogno was our least favorite.
The plusses..... as stated by other reviewers, the property is quite lovely. The large terrace off the bar/restaurant is handsomely decorated with gorgeous plants and has stunning views over the lake. Service in the bar/restaurant is very good...
(1) The women at the front desk are just haughty. We had dinner reservations at a very expensive restaurant for one of the nights we stayed, and asked for a recommendation for a simple place in town for the other. Response... "we don't send our guests to those places in town".
(2) Plain, small, cramped, and stuffy rooms. Perhaps we should have opted for a junior suite, but we booked the "Superior Double Room with Terrace" at 330 Euros/nt. These rooms are directly below the terrace off the bar/restaurant described above. While the terrace was large, the room itself was very tight-- barely room to maneuver around the bed and terrible lighting for reading. Signs on the patio door admonish you against leaving them open, but if you don't the room is very hot and stuffy. If you do open them, you get the breezes and swarms of mosquitoes. Also, you hear the scraping of chairs from above when people are on the terrace above. Lastly... the elevator does NOT go down to this level; it is about 40 stairs up to the next level. Except for the terrace, we really hated this room.
Had we to do it over, we would have stayed at the Grand Hotel, right on the water next to those restaurants the hotel won't send you to. We had lunch and cocktails there, and thought it was quite lovely. We didn't see the rooms, but the staff were extremely helpful and from there you can walk everywhere in the town.
