There are 5 star hotels and then there are truly 5 star hotels. This is the latter. From the views, the service, the food, the amenities, the pool and the activities available, this is a remarkable destination. No detail is missing at this hotel. Life is short, spoil yourself here!

Pure magic, this is our second time visiting the first was 10 years ago. We had the amazing fortune to be invited to a birthday celebration so had the benefit of enjoying the Villa d'este with good friends only adding to our incredible experience. The history and grandeur is spectacular but what is so lovely is the formality of decor... More

Exceptional views, service and accommodations. The grounds are phenomenal. Be sure to hike up the hill to see the statues and fountains. Take a dip in the floating pool for a treat. Enjoy lunch and breakfast lakeside. This place is fit for royalty and it is pure luxury down to the ironed pure linen sheets! The spa treatments are amazing... More

I booked one night at Villa D'Este and was excited about the property but was hesitant about the rooms after staying at Imperial Hotel in Vienna, which looked very similar and had great reviews but the rooms were horrible and the service was lacking. Well this wasn't the case with Villa D'Este. When I arrived I sat down for lunch... More

Have visited one of the restaurants "The Grill" twice. Excellent staff, views and atmosphere completely stunning, however the food did not meet our expectations. Pasta was undercooked and salmon overcooked.

Loved our four night stay at Villa d'Este. Enjoyed the 4th of July gala and fireworks overlooking the lake. Every day was an adventure no matter where we traveled. The grounds are gorgeous. Several restaurants all well staffed, excellent food. The Veranda is not to be missed. Our spacious junior suite had a lovely view of the lake. All amenities... More

Our 5 night stay was a treat to ourselves for the occasion of our 20th wedding anniversary. This is a beautiful hotel, immaculately clean, with impeccable gardens, and first class staff. The décor isn't to my taste, as I prefer modern/contemporary, but it complements the architecture and definitely has a romantic feel to it. Yes, it's expensive, but there's really... More

Great ambient. Nice staff and really tasty and beautiful courses. But way too small for a lunch time. Even with the first, second courses, dissent and couvert I left the place feeling hungry... They have to change the rules ice the wifi. I felt uncomfortable asking and at last, I had to pay even if I was a costumer in... More

The review is for the restaurant Il Platano and not for the Hotel. I was there for dinner with my girlfriend and it was more than what I was expecting!!! The food was really good and the personnel very polite and helpful. The place and the view are amazing! The prices are good in comparison with the quality, the service... More
