This resort hotel is a confusing mix of good and bad, and could be an excellent four star hotel. However, under its current management it does not live up to its 4 star billing. First the good points: - Very large and well maintained grounds with lots of activities, great view of Lake Garda, and a fantastic Olympic size pool.... More

We returned to Poiano after our fantastic holiday there last year and it more than lived up to our wonderful memories. The room, again, was clean and spacious, the food in the restaurant excellent, the facilities - including Olympic sized swimming pool - ideal for a family holiday, and the staff helpful and friendly. We look forward to returning again!

After a 20 year career in overseas travel and many holidays abroad, this is probably the worst hotel and rudest restaurant staff I have ever encountered. Like "Emma 2606" we also travelled to Garda en route to the Queen Elizabeth cruise.. We were herded into an alcove. Were forced to eat cold and often inedible food, a lesson in budget... More

Before my holiday to this hotel I viewed Tripadvisor and saw the awful comments and thought that this can’t be right, but it was. The Italians can cook spaghetti but they can’t cook either scrambled eggs or fried eggs. The fried eggs were congealed and the scramble eggs were a bright yellow – never seen scramble eggs so yellow, I... More

WOW! That was a real hard shot! ... Dear John It's really sad for us to know that Poiano didn't fit your expectations indipendently from how many stars we have or we should or could have since stars do not depend on the color of the eggs or the number of seats of the free shuttle bus. Anyhow your recommendations... More

We have just returned from holiday which we booked through Imagine cruise. this we expected to be four days at Lake Garda and then our cruise on Cunard Queen Elizabeth.

Dear emma2606 I'm happy to know that you found the Resort as clean as you expected. I remember the Imagine Cruise group, of course. We really never thought that dining all together could be a problem. I also remember the weather was not so good on that period so you couldn't enjoy the huge private park with 60 hectares of...

On arriving at the hotel we were given a shabby twin room overlooking the car park. We had booked a double room so requested this and also asked for a room with a view. We were given this but at an extra cost. There is a shuttle bus into Garda but this only takes 8 passengers which does not cater... More

Dear heathspit So sorry to hear that your stay was not what you expected. I'm glad to know that the reception staff immediately gave an answer to your request of room change. The timetable of the free shuttle service is meant to give an answer to the demands of all our customers. The restaurant's food is very important for us... More

Our trip to Italy was a geuine surprise. I must admit to too many preconceptions, and beliefs in many (inaccurate) stigmas with regard Italy and the Italian people. Our stay was on a half-board basis and though the rooms were basic, the reception staff a bit cold in attitude, many of the remaining staff were blessed with good manners, and... More

This is more school party on a bad day than a 4 star hotel. We arrived just after 3pm, and no food was available anywhere. The rooms are very basic. Extra was charged for very slow WiFi.
