We stayed here for one night in what must be shoulder or more of a quiet season, so the main restaurant wasn't open and the borgo felt quite empty. However, the service by front of staff was very professional and helpful, the pool is just stunning and a great place to hang out, looking up the hill to old cortina... More

This hurts: the staff at Il Melone were terrific, so one naturally wants to give a great review, but the property was not great. We had a huge apartment: three bedrooms, two full baths and 2 half baths; would easily sleep 8. The setting is great. Real Italian families live there, and there is a traditional hotel, and a series... More

There were 4 of us and we stayed for 7 days in one of the 2 bedroom apartments. It was a huge 2 story apartment with a living room downstairs and a family room upstairs.

Four of us have just had a 3 night stay. Grounds of this hotel are fantastic, very relaxing and well maintained - a great place to stay. Pool area is very big and a great place to chill.

Our experience at Borgo Il Melone was amazing. We had a lovely room with a private patio overlooking the stunning grounds. The location was perfect. Close enough to town for dining and shopping but far enough to feel like we stayed in the tuscan countryside. The staff are amazing.

We knew we were going to love it there when we arrived on a rainy day, and the desk manager came running out to us with an umbrella to greet us!

Our experience at Borgo Il Melone was absolutely wonderful, romantic and will leave me with wonderful memories to reflect upon. There is only a small amount of rooms that are rented so the feeling you have when you visit is that you have your own Italian Villa! The staff at the front desk were welcoming and always pleasant, present and... More

This is a beautiful and quiet place to stay. Breakfast was served on the patio and was always fresh and delicious. Our room was spacious and comfortable. The only disappointment was that the restaurant was closed. The deli across the street (or in-town highway so a bit of a challenge to walk across) was also closed. We did not have... More

The hotel and grounds are beautiful, typically Tuscan and just off the main road so great for exploring the local area. Our apartment was large and traditionally furnished. When we booked, however, the website made no mention that the restaurant was closed, and there were lovely reviews of the food. Just before we arrived we realised that the restaurant and... More
