“Gorgeous hotel just outside the city”
Reviewed 10 November 2013

Walkable to a public beach. About a mile into city center. Large rooms, a bit dated. The hotel food was very good. Staff friendly and helpful. Outdoor bar is well stocked and fun. Although we travelled with a group, if I was through here again we'd stay.

Location is great, views seriously depends on which room you get as it was an old Villa and not Hotel purposely built !! some rooms are very dark and musty, other are bright and full of sunshine, I would definitely ask for a front facing Lake view room if you intend to stay for more than a couple of nights so please check that out !!...Great for Families. Dining area has amazing views at night and the food was very good.

Room Tip: Front facing Lake rooms are a must in this Hotel so please make sure you know what your getting ahea...

Great hotel - great location, about a 15 minute walk from the main town area. Large pool area with lovely gardens. Good selection at breakfast. Cant beat it for value for money.

Only disapointment was my daughter left her sunglasses by the pool for a few hours and they vanished!!!

This is hotel is a real oasis! Lovely gardens, lovely pool (suitable for our 11 year old and 2 year old), great staff with excellent English, German, French and who knows what else. Excursions ie to the Ferrari museum. We stayed in a family room which was huge and had a view overlooking lake Garda. It was air conditioned which was essential. Our only issue were the uncomfortable, flat pillows, but this is such a small gripe. We will definitely be going back! All the staff were so friendly, attentive and helpful. They seemed very proud of their lovely hotel and rightly so. The hotel had a real family feel. Our elder daughter loved the breakfast buffet - great selection of pretty much everything. It was all very clean and very well kept. Great outside bar area near the pool for drinks and food and a few really nice restaurants nearby which the hotel staff were happy to recommend. The food s also lovely in the hotel.
We will definitely be coming back to Villa Maria. We met one family who had been coming back for years, they said they tried other places, but always wanted to come back here.

We enjoyed our stay here. very friendly and helpful staff. Our room was clean, lovely garden and having a swimming pool is a bonus. Breakfast selections are good. Staff recommended places for us to visit. We can also recommend Rossi, rossie restaurant for food quality and good price with an outside sitting area which is about 5 minutes walk from hotel. Sirmione is a good place to visit by boat, Venice is only an hour and half away by train. Can really recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: ask for room with view.

Villa Maria is not a very nice hotel, because rooms are quite old and cleanliness isn't very good. Since air conditioning isn't very effective, in summer the hotel is hot; in the reception, although it works, air conditioning is often switched off. Garden mantainance is quite disappointing. It definetely does not deserve four stars and prices are too high. The strong target of the hotel is the car park. If I go again to Desenzano I won't choose this hotel.

Room Tip: Choose rooms with balconies: they have a better view.

I stayed here for just one night whilst touring Italy and my room was HUGE!! I mean it could have literally accommodated eight people. The bed was comfy although very low to the ground – a bit odd but didn’t stop me sleeping. The bathroom was a little dated but really that’s being picky. The staff were extremely helpful and welcoming – nothing was too much trouble, fetching drinks from the bar, storing luggage at reception.
I ate in the restaurant and the food was very and good and there was plenty of it! Drinking in the bar is highly recommend as the bar man pours the largest single shots of spirits I’ve ever seen!
