“Fantastic Hotel, Fantastic Resort - We will be going back!”
Reviewed 9 June 2009

This hotel is a gem. My hubby and I have just returned from a week at the Villa Nicolli and all we can do is praise it. Clean, well presented and great service from all the staff. It is slighty back from the harbour about 5-10 mins at a leisurely pace, but this is one of it's bonuses as there is no people or traffic noise, and it is perfect for the evening stroll to the harbour that you definitely need just to let the amazing 5 course evening meal settle.
With the buffet breakfast (the complimentary buffet lunch), and the evening meals being so tasty expect to put on a bit of weight whilst there. The new spa wing is fantastic, we first used it during an afternoon downpour, and it was the height of luxury. There is a steam room, sauna, a room with charged ions, a 3 part shower & mist, a strange 2 part shower and some heated air beds that are all available 3 - 7pm & an indoor pool with various bubbly bits, jacuzzis (seated & lying down) open from morning to 8pm.
The room was a good size, though the beds were a little on the hard side, and the balcony (ours looked back towards the mountains) is a nice touch.
The only down side is that to use the pools (inside or out) you have to wear a swimming cap, your own or one bought from reception for 2 or 3€ ( I can't be sure as I bought the cap in combination with the flip flops that must be worn if you want to use the spa - total for both was 5€), so for both of us to use the spa it cost an extra 10€ that we hadn't known about.
The outdoor pool is nice with a small garden to the side that is perfect for quiet sunbathing.
Riva itself is a great resort with the dramatic mountains to the back and side and the beautiful lake with all it's lovely harbour and plenty of watersports. The local buses were immaculate and pretty prompt and reasonably priced.

We have just returned from Hotel villa Nicolli after using Tripadvisor to see the recommended hotels, Hotel Villa Nicolli really lived up to its reviews. We could not fault this hotel or the service, it was excellent, and the meals were plentiful and good too.

Our room looked out onto the Vineyard, we would certainly recommend this hotel and the region for the stunning scenery and fab walks..

We booked this hotel last minute with Ingrams and have to say it was one of the best last minute deals we have ever booked. The hotel was great the room big and very clean, with brilliant views. We had a view of the hills and vineyard, and everything was in the room you would expect, eg big bathroom.

A bonus was the food and staff both of which were top notch, the food plenty and well made, showing off some of the regions best food, the staff very friendly without crowding you and the whole hotel had a homely feel. And then there was the new SPA, just cannot get any better.

All this, then the hotel was perfectly located just outside the town (10 mins walk) which made it easy to get in and out and then into the hills and boat trips

I would recommend this hotel for those who want relaxation and a perfect location for walking or biking. I would, no will, return one day

My wife and I booked a hoilday via Inghams. It was fairly last minute - we paid £412 pp including flights from Gatwick to Verona, transfers to the hotel and half board. We'd upgraded to a room with a balcony and mountiain views as it only cost around £20 extra.

We hired a car as we wanted a bit of independence to visit the region. The journey took around and hour from Verona and the hotel was quite easy to find being signposted from te main road. The hotel was around 10 minutes walk from the centre This suited us fine as it was in a quiet area near to a vineyard an way from the hustle and bustle of the town centre.

The hotel was excellent. The first thing that struck us was the genuine friendliness of the member of staff at reception who checked us in very speedily. The room was large and more of a suite with a big comfortable bed (two twins pushed together) and with more than enough space for a sofa and large armchair. The room was on the third floor and had a balcony with with two chairs and views of the mountains, vineyards, the pool and the new spa centre. The room and bathroom were extremely clean. The bathoom was large with hot high pressure water at all times.

Breakfast was very good with a wide choice of foods such as cereals, yoghurts, toasts, cakes together wih hot food such sausage, bacon , egg, tomatoes and mushrooms.

Dinners were five course affairs and were really good. With a first course, second course, main course, selections of desserts and cheeses. The food had a home made
quality to it. The waiting staff were attentive, very polite, friendly and accommodating.

If you had any room left after breakfast a buffet lunch, again excellent, consisting of salads, cold starters and some hot food, was also thrown in.

The month we arrived a new spa centre had opened. It was housed in a purpose built wing with a large spa pool on the ground floor which contained many wonderful gadgets such a jacussi at one end, bed spas to lie in, a pool area and massage jets. There were comfortable wooden loungers to lie on and look out at the garden and outdoor pool.

Upstairs was a sauna centre with a classic wooden sauna, a turkish bath, a relaxation room and illuminated mulitcoured showers which sprinkeld you with scents.

The hotel also had a great little garden to sit in and relax undet the sun.

Riva is well placed for tours of the norh west of Italy. There are many cute small towns to visit and lots of walks to do. It is also a mountain biker centre with good terraine to bike around in.

I would highly recommend the hotel and the region if you want a relaxing slow paced holiday with stunning scenery.

I stayed in this hotel last week, as part of a group tour of Tuscany and lake garda. I could not fault this hotel,, service was excellent, and the meals were fantastic. I was travelling as a single person, and was the only one of my group to be given a room without a balcony, and it was fitted out for a disable person, I did ask for a room with a view and a balcony, but was told they had another group coming in,, ( I did not see them) as we were the only group there.
Other than that the hotel was fantastic, and I would not hesitate to recommend it. Other than not able to make an Irish coffee as requested by my friend, (no ingredients) but again I would recommend this hotel, and the staff were so friendly.....

We got married in Riva del Garda on the 8th Sept 08 and choose to stay at the Hotel Villa Nicolli and also choose to hold our wedding reception here for 46 guests. From the moment we arrived, to the moment we left nothing was too much for any of the staff; from meeting with Luca the chef to discuss menus (which was 6 courses, plus the cake!! - all of it amazing!!), to Alessia the receptionist who took us searching for flowers on her day off!! Not to mention Ignazio, the head waiter who made our guests feel so welcome on the day... nothing was too much and the staff made us feel very much part of the family. Without the help of the staff from the Hotel Villa Nicolli, our day wouldn't have been as perfect as it was!!!

The hotel itself is set approx a leisurely 10mins walk from the town square, in a peaceful area set amongst vine groves, the perfect location, not too far from the main area and yet not too close. The food is plentiful and extremely tasty, and perfect wine from their very own wine cellar to match.

We will definately be returning to Riva del Garda and the Hotel Villa Nicolli, as I'm sure will many of our wedding guests.

We wanted to visit Riva and I used Tripadvisor to see the recommended hotels - Villa Nicolli really lived up to its reviews. This was the most relaxing holiday we'd had for a long time. The hotel's tucked away and so is quiet, but within easy walking distance of Riva. We really liked Riva itself - some of the towns to the south were completely packed with tourists but Riva wasn't as busy. It has lots of character and lots of lovely cafes/bars etc by the water's edge.

If you go to Villa Nicolli do go for the half board option - it's excellent value - but go to dinner early because some guests seem to be happy to take several helpings of dessert.

Overall, definitely a hotel I'd be happy to go back to.
