“Friendly, Stunning, wonderful Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 March 2013

We stayed at this hotel in August 2011 and August 2010. The best Holiday as a family we have ever had. This hotel is oldy worldy but that's what leads to its charm. The staff were amazing, Johnny the Restaurant Manager, remembered us in our second year and was as attentive as he was the first year, as were all his staff, the rooms were cleaned daily and were spotless. The entertainment staff were first class and there were activities for all ages throughout the day, Our daughter 14 at the time made many friends, from all over Europe, several of whom we stayed in touch with and they came to the uk and we visited Belgium.
The food was very good in the morning and evening, Lunch was a little sparse but there was alway pasta and salad and some meat. Drinks were free flowing.
Limone is exceptionally beautiful, we hired a speed boat on the lake which was amazing. We travelled up to lake Tenno which was breathtaking, we hired a car and toured around. We will be going back to this hotel again next year and hope to have another amazing time, across the water is Malcesine, where you can take a cable car ride up onto Mount Baldo and absolute must. For the most breathtaking views you will ever encounter. The view from our room across the lake was outstanding.

We stayed here a couple of years ago and had a wonderful stay. a lovely welcome drink on arrival and fast friendly check in.
the rooms were clean and comfy and so was the pool areas. The food was also very good that we had on a half board basis.
Staff were very friendly and helpful when we needed any local information to plan days out or trips. Venice wasn't too far away and was well worth the day trip.
Nice hotel in a nice setting. Yes, there aren't many english here but that wasn't a problem at all for us, and we didn't experience any problems at all. Wrote this review now as thinking of returning in the next 12 months .

Room Tip: ask for lake view

It was several years a go, 2007, my wife and i had the misfortune to stay at this hotel and i felt sure i had posted a review, somewhere!
We went with Inghams who were very good to be honest and the only complaint was the hotel. It really was / is not for the English with the guiest ratio being something like 85% German, with a few Dutch and Danish etc. The food was awful, so much so that despite paying for all-inclusive we had to eat out every night, bumping up the cost somewhat. The AI drinks package was via a self service vending machine and the colour or wine depended on what the previous guest had, so it could be a bit pinkish. Location in respect of Limone village is very misleading and you have to be quite fit to walk it, my wife and i are not so had to use the courtesy bus, but only if you could fight the Germans off the damn thing. My wife was physically preventent from boarding the bus buy 2 large Germans, i was unable to go to the lake that day due to ill health but wish i had been there!
The scenery is stunning, quite literally jaw droppingly beautiful, we just picked the wrong hotel. Do not make the same mistake, please!

Room Tip: If you have to go to this hotel and speak good German, make sure you have a lake view superior room...

Dear catpeople,

we're sorry for the inconvenience you experienced during your stay back in 2007.

Anyway, yours is an urge to further improve our service, so we thank you so much for your review. We would like to invite you and your wife to come back now. We would be really happy to welcome you again and show you how our hospitality has improved. Kind regards

The hospitality here is awesome. We had a lovely welcome from the reception, every meal time the staff were very attentive and friendly. 5 star performance.

The hotel is clean and tidy but generally very very dated, you think you have gone back in time.

Our room was dressed daily and towels changed when needed. unfortunately the room was dusty in areas and the bed had seen far better days.

The location is pretty good with great views across the lake and an easy 10 mins walk into Limone.

During our stay we met only one other English couple, this doesn't normally bother us as we like to mingle with other cultures and nationalities, but the majority of the German guest staying here were very rude, especially to the staff. Not something we have come across before.

The food in almost great overall. Breakfast has a lovely selection, hot and cold. Lunch was the let down with Chips and some kind of breaded meat, one pasta dish and salad. The evening meal was excellent, lots and lots of choice with freshly carved meats, fish and delightful pasta dishes. I generally don't eat desserts but here I had some every night!

The entertainment is poor, bring your own.

On the beach of the hotel is Windriders where we spent the week learning to kiteboard. this is highly recommended!

This hotel has the potential to be great with some investment in decor and facilities, with this I would happily pay more.

Room Tip: Lake view recommended

my wife and i spent a very uncomfortable 3 nights at this hotel. the views are very pretty and the first impression of the hotel good. however a few hours into the holiday we realised we were the only english couple in a hotel full of german visitorsthere were nol information boards in english, when asking for information on trips we were told that there were no trips for the english visitor going anywhere.the meals times were very very uncomfortable and in the evening with no entertainment what so ever we were in our room at 7.30 in the evening the alternative sitting in the bar which again would have been very uncomfortable. the food was very basic . the whole experience quite isolating.

there are a lot of hills and steps to the rooms ,

my advise would be very wary when booking at this hotel. in my opinion if they do not want to cater for the english visitor do not take bookings from the english tour operators

unfortuately it was not a good first impression of italy.

we're sorry for the inconvenience. Our hotel has a high proportion of German guests, owing to our location on Lake Garda. But, of course, we warmly welcome guests from all over the world. We're sorry if your first impression was not good; yet we will take your review into account so as to improve our service, and we invite you over to see the improvements for yourself. Kind regards

Spent a relaxing two weeks at this hotel with my wife in September.

The holiday got off to a great start with just a two hour flight to Verona. The transfer to Limone took almost as long, because the coach travelled up the east side of the lake to the top, and then down the west side to our destination, after dropping off at resorts along the way.

The hotel is beautifully situated, overlooking the lake. It has extensive grounds, with most of the rooms spread around various outlying blocks. There are several sunbathing areas, with loungers aplenty, and there is even a private shale beach, with its own snacks and drinks bar. This is where the "different" bit kicks in. The hotel's three bars - beach, pool and indoor - are all completely self service. There is a beer pump, a wine and soft drinks machine, a hot drinks machine, and an array of optics with bottles of spirits at each location. This seems odd at first, but actually works very well, virtually eliminating queues, with a large supply of glasses (plastic at the outside locations) always available. Also unique in my experience of continental hotels is that dogs are allowed, but at no inconvenience to other guests. The only time I saw them was being walked on leads by their (usually German) owners in the hotel's grounds.

We found the rooms very comfortable and well equipped. The meals, I have to say, are not gourmet standard, but perfectly acceptable. The evening meal is the best, with a wide choice which should suit all tastes. A range of hot or cold breakfasts set you up well for the day, but the choice at lunchtime is limited to pasta, chips salad and a burger.

For days out the locality provides endless options. Excursions are on offer to Verona, Venice, Milan and the Dolomites. Alternatively, you can amuse yourself. The hotel's free shuttle bus takes you into Limone at various times of day. This little town is a picture postcard from start to finish, providing opportunity for shopping, sightseeing, ambling around, and watching the world go by. If you want to go further afield you can take a ferry from Limone to various other towns on the lake. The ones we visited were all beautiful, but none to match Limone.

On evenings you can take a pleasant 20 minute walk into Limone, where there are occasional open air concerts, and you can try a drink in one of the lakefront bars. Alternatively, you can stay at the hotel and take advantage of its free drinks, whilst enjoying the low key, easy listening entertainment, provide by a talented range of instrumentalists/vocalists.

The hotel is well served by its unobtrusively pleasant and courteous staff, who are there for you but not in an "in your face" manner. Johnny, the restaurant manager, is a real gentleman. He will make himself known to you, and be delighted to help in any way if you need him. We also found the Crystal reps to be unfailingly helpful, and keen to help you get the best out of your holiday.

All in all, we found the hotel to be excellent value for money, in quite an expensive part of the world. To have bought everything outside which the hotel provided as part of its package would have cost a king's ransom. We will undoubtedly be back at some time in the future.

Comfortable well situated hotel very clean great views of the lake with its own private beach,what more do you want for this price?. Free drinks decent red wine with dinner beer was ok and the spirit bar (self service) had reasonable quality local brands, had much worse at other all inclusive s in the past.Breakfast was good lunch quite limited (but how much do you want to eat in a day ?) dinner was very good with plenty of choice for all tastes. All staff in all areas were very friendly and helpful (even at reception). The main winner is the lake fantastic beautiful place explored all of it during the week stunning sights will definitely come again.
