Just returned from a 4 night stay at Hotel Le Palme as part of a last minute Thomson holiday. Upon arrival in Limone, we were picked up by a member of staff in a small electric vehicle to take us directly to the hotel, although we could have walked as it was only a short distance. The staff at the hotel were all very friendly and efficient - particularly those working in the restaurant. We were incredibly impressed with the speed at which our food arrived and how quickly drinks were replenished. As we were half board, we enjoyed breakfast and a four-course evening meal throughout our stay and only have positive things to say about the food quality and quantity. As the hotel is so well located, there is some noise into the evening with shoppers and people enjoying the bars nearby, but this was not a problem for us. A factor could also have been our room being directly above reception. The hotel has two hot tubs on a small roof terrace which has a terrific, uninterrupted view of Lake Garda and it is well worth spending some time up there. The swimming pool is a short walk away from the hotel and due to its size, can get rather busy. On our first full day we took a boat across to Malcesine where we ventured up Monte Baldo in the cable car. The cable car wasn't a pleasant experience as it was crammed full of people and therefore the view was restricted somewhat. The views are good from the top of the mountain and it is great to watch the paragliders though so not all bad. There were also donkeys and alpacas at the top. We then had a wander around the town and swam in the lake. The next day we headed over to Riva and hired a pedalo which was great fun and again, we decided to cool down in the water. Limone itself is a cute, charming town and the gelateria close to the Tourist Information serves the best ice cream I have ever tasted - Tiramisu Flavour! On our last day, it was a little cooler and raining so we took the ferry back to Riva and walked up to Capella Santa Barbara via the Bastion. This was a thoroughly enjoyable walk - gave the legs a work-out and provided an excellent view of Riva. All in all we had a wonderful stay and it is very likely we will return. Recommendations are: Tiramisu ice cream, Kiwi ice cream, hire a boat, swim in the lake, do lots of walking and if you are up to it - visit Capella Santa Barbara!
