My husband and I spent a week at the Poaino 20-27th August 2014. We had a junior suite which was quite a hike from the main complex building up quite a steep hill and some steps. However, we had a lovely view of the surrounding countryside and the lake. We had a couple of issues with the room but they... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our week in the Poiano Hotel. Our Superior room was spacious, quiet, had a lovely terrace with cushioned sunbeds & overlooked the lake. It was at the top of the resort so we did have to walk up the steep hill & many steps to our room however the advantages of the room outweighed this. On 2... More

We have just returned from a week at the poiano hotel. We had a junior suite which had a fabulous view and was very large for our family of four and very clean on arrival. The grounds are lovely with a beautiful pool, which was rather cold but again perfectly clean. We were half board and felt that the food... More

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

Dear Mike & Monica As we already answered to your tour partner Brenda, we realized that was a misunderstanding between you and the agency that organized your tour.

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

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.

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.

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.
