We have just returned from a week stay at Le Palme Hotel, Limone, staying on a half-board basis which was booked through Crystal Holidays. The reps from Crystal Holidays were also very good, Jim looked after our hotel and we also met Katie as well. They could not do enough to help and were easy to contact should you have a problem.
The resort of Limone is absolutely beautiful and is an ideal place to stay with easy access to the near by towns of Riva, Malcesine etc. We had been to Limone on a previous occassion and stayed at the Panorma Hotel in Limone which is a sister hotel of Le Palme Hotel, but decided we wanted to stay in the centre of town during our second visit. We were not disappointed. The hotel was excellent and definitely worth its four star rating. The hotel pool is a little small and is shared with the guests from the Splendid Palace and it is sometimes difficult to get a sun bed. However, on the third floor of Le Palme hotel they have a sun terrace with two jacuzzi spa baths and nine sunbeds so after we found this we never ventured near the pool again as the view from the terrace over the lake was fantastic. All the staff work extremely hard to make your stay as enjoyable as possible, from the chamber maids to the waiting staff etc. The rooms are tastefully decorated and the bathrooms have been refurbished to a very high standard and the cleanliness of the rooms is first class. We found the food at the hotel to be extremely enjoyable and there was always something to choose from off the menu everynight even for the fussiest of eaters. The gala dinner on the friday night was really good too. The staff in the restaurant were really friendly and helpful, many thanks to Daniel, Luca, Liugi etc for their friendly banter. A big thanks also to Rosanna and Martin in Reception for their assistance. All in all we would definitely recommend a stay at Le Palme Hotel. Thanks again for a fantastic holiday.

Room Tip: Room 302 has 2 windows one overlooking the lake and one to the side and is extremely light.

I booked a mini-break girly get away to Le Palme hotel, Limone with my mum in August 2012. Overall we had an excellent time in Limone and the resort is beautiful; it is an ideal location to explore the scenic towns of Riva, Torbole and Malcesine. We stayed at Le Palme hotel which is situated right next to the ferry office on the lakeside, it literally takes a minute to buy a ticket and board a ferry. Also, it means you are in the heart of the town and can easily walk to the beach, shops, bars and restaurants, it really is a fantastic location. I was worried that as we were in the heart of Limone that we would be disturbed by noise but this was never an issue - in fact, on the first morning we slept so well that we missed our welcome meeting!

The rooms are decorated in traditional Italian style, dark ornate wood and lots of burnt orange bedding with a very modern bathroom. In particular, the shower had a lovely hot, powerful shower with a brilliant magnetic attachment so you cold easily lower or heighten then shower had (very innovative design!). Some of the reviews of the rooms are a little negative and suggest the rooms are dated, but I think that the bedding and bathroom are actually quite new. If you have been to Italy before you will know that this is a typical fashion for more traditional style rooms and it suits this building, which used to be an old villa/mansion house.

Furthermore, the hotel is very clean. Our sheets and towels were changed everyday and they even irregularly turn down your covers at night! This was a nice touch!

The best feature is the small sun terrace on the roof, there are 8 sun beds and 2 spa tubs. I'm surprised they don't advertise the spa tubs more as they are fantastic! It's a lovely way to unwind after a day out to have a glass of wine on the terrace or in the hot tub. You have great views of the lake from their too.

The only thing I disliked about Le Palme was the food. Breakfast was lovely, great variety and you could sit out on the terrace with infinity views of the lake. However, the quality of dinned was poor. We stayed half-board and hoped to use the dinners to save money however we ended up eating put most nights as it wasn't an enjoyable experience. Also, as a half-board guest you can only eat inside the hotel next to the kitchen, you are not allowed onto the terrace )even when there are tables are free) as they are reserved for 'paying customers' - this was irritating as we had paid a lot for this holiday and had paid half-board, in effect we had paid in advance and felt we deserved to sit outside too. It made you feel like a free school meal child or inferior citizen. You could see the larger portions and nicer food being taken out to external guests however the food served to the internal guests was not the same standard and this was disappointing. I appreciate that the food for half-board might be simpler but I think it should still be cooked well and it wasn't. I'm quite surprised as everything else about the hotel is lovely but half-board dinner really does let the hotel down, if they can rectify this it would be a fantastic stay.

I would recommend staying bed and breakfast but it's not good value for money to stay half board.

This was our first visit to Italy and we weren't disappointed. The hotel was a delight, quite small and very friendly and was everything we expected from a four star hotel. The attention we received from all the staff was second to none, a huge thankyou to each and everyone. The views at breakfast overlooking the lake was something you could only dream about, breakfast will never taste the same again. Thank you Le Palme for one of the best holidays we have had.

Just back from our 14th stay! Some might think that sad I guess,but we regard it as though staying with our Italian family.Anyway,this year every bath/shower room in the hotel has been totally refurbished to a high standard which only goes to prove that the Family Rissati really do listen to what thier clients have to say on TA.In addition the roof terrace has also been hurtled into the 21st century,now fully enclosed by plate glass screening,all new rattan style furniture AND two spa baths,brilliant! The entire staff,still managed 'hands on' by director Rosanna who seems to be there 24/7.and assisted this year by her son Martin in reception.Michele is also still in charge of the waiting staff and to listen to him and Gino in full Italian flight is a delight in itself! The food is pretty much as always,some days better than others it is only fair to say but chef Michele is a BIG guy AND we will be going back next year! And once again I will sayit,this is NOT the hotel for those seeking a big flashy establishment,instead think 'guests of a wealthy Venitian merchant' and disapointment will not be an option.I'm with you rosieb4!!!

What a fantastic hotel, it was spotless, half board option was excellent, and breakfast something for everyone, Martin & Roseanna ( reception) were very freindly and helpful, and the waiting staff were very polite, the hotel has a very central location with the ferry port next to the hotel, and the lake views are superb, i recommend a trip to Mount Baldo brilliant views and Riva Del Garda was a lovely town with again great views, i had a wonderful trip to Limone and would recommend Le Palme without hesitation

I couldn't disagree more with the previous post. The waiters who all seemed to work 24/7 were friendly, helpful and had a sense of humour but sometimes you get back what you give out. One gentleman staying there at the same time as us was extremely rude to them and treated them like they were some kind of slaves. Even then the waiter dealing with him kept his cool and remained polite. We found on a half-board deal the food was clearly done on a budget (it has to be) but was no worse than British pub food and there was nothing stopping you upgrading to the a la carte menu if you wanted. You get what you pay for. The breakfasts were very good, something for everyone and the evening meal with a help yourself salad bar + 3 courses was good value for money. Rosanna was extremely helpful moving us to a room with a balcony as soon as one was available, running us down to the bus station when it was pouring with rain etc. Martin on reception was always friendly and helpful. The room was very clean and comfortable and the Hotel perfectly placed for a relaxing holiday spent sitting by the lakeside, wandering around the picturesque town or hopping on the boat to visit other locations on the Lake. We thoroughly enjoyed it and would definitely go back.

The hotel Palme appears like a promising place to dine, but don´t be fooled by appearances. The waiters appear to think they are doing the guest a favor by providing minimum assistance, ignoring requests for service and otherwise acting rudely. If you have not made a decision to leave before ordering you are in for another rude surprise. Although the menu selection is acceptable the food quality could benefit from a health inspection. Best to return it, order another glass of wine that the waiters cannot ruin and simply enjoy the view which is the sole redeeming asset of this establishment.
