My new husband and I arrived in bellagio for the first night of our honeymoon. We were picked up from the ferry dock by the hotel staff which was a great touch. We had no additional treats with it being our honeymoon not even a glass o persecco!
We had booked the suite which was a beautiful room with a great view, however the 2 rooms next door would have offered the same view as the balcony was pretty much shared and no doubt those rooms were cheaper!
Hadn't quite realised the walk in and out of town! Yes the gardens were beautiful to walk through as described but came at a cost! The lido was closed for the 6 days of our stay despite the weather being beautiful still. We didn't find the hotel staff had great knowledge on local activities or places to go, information they gave us was often wrong.
We ate in the restaurant on a few nights, mostly to save the walk into town! Food was good, staff were miserable. Also think the hotels manager sacked someone in the garden one night....viewed from the restaurant! Although entertaining more than the restaurant staff not that professional!
Bellagio defiantly the best place to stay in como, but consider your hill walking skills and length of stay prior to booking up! 3 days more than adequate!
