Spent a week in Villa Dirce first week in September, after checking with reviews on Trip Advisor. As previously stated the views from the hotel are stunning, the staff are excellent and whilst the rooms are clean the rooms are a bit outdated, but I have found this in other parts of Italy.
Our room was on floor 1 next to the swimming pool, which was OK except there was no water, or only a trickle, for a shower in the morning and at night (unless taken at 7.00 or 17.00). Other guests on this floor complained but was told it was because everyone was using them at the same time! Its a problem that will always exist and whilst you can expect the odd bad shower experience on holiday abroad being stuck with conditioner on your hair (more than once) and no water to rinse off can be a bit annoying.
The major disappointment was the standard of food served at the evening meal. Whilst we had seen mixed reviews we were confident the food would be to our liking. We are not fussy eaters and have previously eaten in many hotels in Italy and thoroughly enjoyed the meals. There was plenty of choice, as other reviewers have pointed out, but it was a bit hit and miss. Food was being sent back because it was cold, pasta congealed in one lump and some not very palatable dishes. Shame the food couldn't match the views from the dining hall as they were excellent. We have stayed in 3 star Italian hotels and the food has been of a higher standard.
We will be going back to the lake for our 3rd visit in the near future, but not to the Villa Dirce
