Reviewed 12 August 2010

This hotel is for me quite polarizing: Great offerings, such as location, pool, charming restaurant where you can sit outside (but not to be used if you have half pension, but mainly for external guests) and then small rooms, broken and not enough lying chairs at the beach, AC and safe that first had to be fixed, AC that is being shut down between 2 am and 6 am, noisy room above the kitchen, eating table next to the kitchen entry (noisy and hot), slow service staff.

First the positives: the position on the lake is gorgeous. The pool area is very pretty as is the patio with stunning views of the lake. Additionally, the location is attractive. It is close to the pretty village of Gargagnano and Gardone Riviera. It simply is a pretty part of Lake Garda.

The problem here is staff. It's hard to get a peep out of them. "Can I have a cappuccino" Cappuccino arrives without a word. "Is there a good, non touristy trattoria in the area?" "Um, well, I really can't say. I think you might find one in Salo'." I get the impression that the people who work here are not bad folks, they simply have not been taught the basic niceties of working in a hotel.

Now to be more specific, the bedrooms are tiny and truly dorm-roomesque. There is no joy in staying in them except to sleep, shower and leave. The bathroom is small and boring like the bedrooms. The walls are paper thin. We felt self-conscious speaking out loud because we could so clearly hear the conversations of people staying next to us. The breakfast, like the service, is just thoughtless. No one cares to make it more of a feature for the guests.

This is a hostel for grownups. Sorry, I can't recommend it.
