Just came back and would agree with all of the other reviewers on great friendly service, good food and superb location. I would definitely recommend this hotel and Limone.
Things to be aware of:
1. Don't get a room on floor 4 as they are practically in the pool and you get splashed - they will change rooms for you. If you can get a room on floors 7/8 and 9 they are next door to the main hotel (still connected but about a 30 foot extra walk) and you benefit from being a bit further away from the bar terrace which can be a bit noisy at night. You must get a lake view - absolutely amazing views.
2. There is an extra pool which opens on to the lake - it's smaller but quieter and they forget to mention it. Helps with the sunbed issue which does exist. If you have smaller kids there is an indoor pool which is hardly used at all which is very handy.
3. Ferries are superb but a bit pricey. Do the fast boat out (inside and can't see much) and slow boat back (outside with lots to see).
4. You can get a local bus which we took to Gardone Riviera which goes about once an hour. It was air conditioned and cost half the price of the ferry and is particularly good for towns on the same side as Limone. if you go there you must go to Il Vittoriale which is a splendid house and gardens - it has a battleship in the garden!
5 Go as early as you can to the cable car in Malcesine. We took a mid morning ferry and ended waiting 40 mins in the queue and then another hour from the ticket office. Well worth the trip but beware.
6. Wifi costs 7 euros a week and was OK for web surfing but struggled a bit with bigger files.
7. You have to pay 1 euro a day for the safe which seemed a bit pointless to me - why not just include it.
