A huge variety of amenities! Luxurious car and yaughts rentals, aveda spa, complex of saunas and pools, gym, restaurants, exclusive collection of drinks and spirits (best grappas in Italy), excellent service, creative chef and pleasant design. We were lucky to have a sunny weather and enjoy outside pools and services. There are a lot of indoor spots though. Great view on the lake from the room. Local ducks made our stay:)

We loved the dinner. The best dinner since a long time!
Fabulous service , great wine and a young chef in the kitchen. The starters are a must!
The spa is very inviting , the few treatments very well done..
It's great for any age as one just enjoys the lovely hotel, the garden, the massive magnolia, the peace of the lake.. Rooms are average ..old.. But the terrace we had made up for the room.. Somehow this place is so calming that one doesn't mind or bother about the room standard.. Enjoy the day and the evening with a sunset or rain.. Looked great too.. And sleep over ;)

We liked it .. We will be back.. Will definitely recommend..
Lunch was ok.. So I'd recommend getting out over the day if not high season and be back for dinner.. 8 days in Italy and that was by far the best foie gras I have had in a while.. And I lived in the south of France...

Great place

Overall we would happily recommend this hotel to friends (4.5 stars) although we would make some qualifying remarks. Firstly the location is magical and the establishment stylish if a little old world for some tastes. The service is excellent and very friendly, making its contribution to the overall success of this get-away-from-it-all break. That leads us nicely to the spa section of the hotel: best ever spa treatments is how we would describe it. Worth the money and again, friendly service.
What then, you may ask, are the qualifications? Well, while breakfast is a treat and very generous the in-house restaurant has a limited and somewhat pretentious menu. The food is fine - the fish is a highlight - but go elsewhere if you're looking for more variety or larger portions. That said the service here is also relaxed and friendly. Overall Grand Hotel Fasano has been exactly what we hoped it would be.

We visited the Grand Hotel Fasano for our honeymoon a few weeks ago. The hotel is lovely with a beautiful view over looking Lake Garda. Breakfasts (huge!) are served on the balcony by attentive staff and we had a lovely, tasty dinner in the main restaurant which I thought was reasonably priced considering a 5 star hotel. The swimming pools and spa are a real bonus. I had a few treatments in the spa and is was fabulous!! Excellent service all round from the room cleaners to the concierge service!! The hotel, it's grounds and our individual room were very clean. The staff are friendly, attentive and very professional. Special thanks to Giuseppi, Alessio, Luca the '911 cocktail creator!', and Jay.
The village of Gardona is a ten/twelve minute walk down the road from where you can pick up the boats for the Lake; Salo is a small taxi ride away.
We will definitely be back.

Room Tip: Go for the lake view - priceless.

Spent seven nights here after Easter and it is all absolutely stunning, extremely pretty grounds, albeit it isn't even in flower yet! Looking over Lake Garda with beautiful balustrading on the water's edge. The hotel is all cream/white gold in decor inside, with even a large elegant white bird cage with white tiny birds in in the main salon just off the reception area. - the room we had was absolutely fantastic with ornate bedhead and canopy, comfy ornate table and chairs, beautiful lamp bases etc. again all in cream and gold. Full bathroom suite and we had a shower cubicle that looked out onto the lake (with a modesty screen etched on the window to a certain height)! so you could shower and look out onto the Lake at the same time. Can't praise the decor enough, it is so romantic and far superior to other 5* hotels I looked at before booking. Had a triple balcony with loungers and chairs and tables - it was heaven! Service was perfect throughout, with very friendly staff (notably a lady I think her name was Rivas/Rives - she was simply wonderful, a little angel). The formal dining room was pricey as you would expect really, and VERY formal to the point where I personally didn't relax (but others may like this),as the waiters were so attentive. Breakfasts were lovely though, with plenty of choice from the buffet table both hot and cold. Some of the hotels along this west side of the lake have rather ugly fronts (albeit the lake sides are ok) as you drive along or are literally straight onto the road, but this hotel is very pretty with trompe l'oeil paintings on the frontage and again pretty grounds to drive into, with oil burning candles at night time. Didn't use the Spa, but had a walk round and it looked gorgeous. You will not be disappointed if you are booking this for a special holiday as I did. Rooms are immaculate with bedding changed every day and towels changed morning and evening. Children are catered for too in the rooms. Whilst expensive it is well worth every penny and I was so glad I booked this hotel rather than the other 4&5* hotels along the same strip after I had actually seen them all.... There are restaurants too (I will rate these also) about one Km away to your left as the hotel is behind you if you want to walk - look for the 'Grand Hotel' and and there is a little village on the water's edge and a small square and a few restaurants here. Other than that there is Moderno, a larger village to your right which is a 5/6 minute car journey, where there are restaurants too. Everything I had asked for, like champagne in the room upon arrival, was there on time and they also left a lovely plate of fresh fruit all wrapped up in cellophane. Can't praise this Hotel enough and will definitely be going back.

Room Tip: Ask for a lake view. We had room 204.

We finished off our honeymoon perfectly with a four night stay here.
You could spend all your time at the hotel, but the local town is well worth a look too.
Fantastic breakfasts.
Pricey, but worth it!

I have been reading some of the reviews and cannot believe some of the adverse comments made. My husband and I visit Garda every summer and for the past twelve years we have stayed at this hotel. The service is both friendly and highly professional. The setting is luxurious and relaxing. The rooms are spacious and very very clean. The restaurant offers great food and wines. Their breakfast is on the terrace facing the lake and the spread caters for all tastes.How anyone can find fault with this wonderful 5 star hotel is beyond me!

Room Tip: Choose a room with a lake view.
