“Good location, nice staff, nice food. GREAT pool area.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

great location, near bus station but quiet enough. great pool view, there is a walk way to pool (also lift there) food was lovely, always nicer to get table service compared to rush at a buffet. Please note if you dont ASK in advance, you will be allocated a SHARED table. We emailed them in advance to ask for our own table, which we prefer. friendly attentive staff. entertainment not so great, but some people may like it, garda appeals to older people, we are in early 40s and enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and stroll down the various bars / restaurants at night. walk to Barladino takes a good 45 minutes, lovely scenery. we went during the Bardelino wine festival, highly recommended! we would consider going back to La Perla in the (far away) future.

Have visited many areas of Italy before and have never had such dissapointing food and service. If you are looking for authentic Italian food La Perla is not for you. It felt more like school dinners. My friend and I placed our evening order at breakfast and on three occasions we were not able to have our choice as there was none left! The last meal was really memorable we ordered Tiramisu but there was none left and was offered chocolate mousse and apple baked tart, the chocolate mousse was a swirl of cream sprinkled with chocolate and the apple tart was a hollow pastry case with very little filling. There was no one available to give us advice on choice of wines and the waiters and waitresses had very little time to spend with you as they were so busy. The hotel is generally clean but a little tired looking. The poolside appears larger in the brochure and there was very little space between beds when busy. It is only a short walk to the lakeside and the bus station is near by these were the only good points.

Europlan, Proprietario at Hotel La Perla, responded to this review, October 26, 2012
We are sorry that in spite of many positive reviews, the cuisine wasn't to your liking.
We offer dishes that are 100% Italian, obviously everybody has different tastes.. We believe your diappointment was due to the fact that you didn't have the possibility of tasting Tiramisù (typical Italian dessert), but our dessert buffet is made of many dishes and these can unfortunately finish, however there is always a vast variety of home made cakes on offer.
We have on call a maitre sommelier and our pool for adults (30 x 16,50 mt) has a large green park where, whoever wishes, can find space and peace.
We thank you for the comments received that will definately urge us to improve any inefficiencies received and we sincerely hope that you will be our guest again in the future.

The hotel is very old, but kept up very well and the staff was very nice. The hotel guests are between 50-100 yrs. We are fairly young so more then 3 days wouldn't have been ideal. The location is fabulous. There is so much to do within walking distance.

We enjoyed our stay at La Perla very much. This is our fourth visit to Garda but our first stay at La Perla - compared to the other hotels this is the best. Great location near the town and lake also close to the bus station where we caught a bus to Verona which only costs 8 euros return. We agree with other contributors that Gerardo the Maitre D was very good and Daniella too deserves a mention. Suffice to say we were very impressed and we think that La Perla is certainly well worth another visit.

Room Tip: As we were there in October we cannot comment on the noise as this time of year it was quiet everywh...

Lovely Hotel, breakfast very good and a good variety, rooms slightly dated but the location makes up for this.
Pool area is fantastic the largest pool we ever been to comfy sunbeds and small but good bar service.
This was our second visit to this hotel and will return again for sure very soon.

Room Tip: Rooms over looking the pool area have a better view.

We have just returned from a short break to La Perla , Second time we have stayed at this hotel and returned as we got so well looked after last time . The staff go out of their way to ensure you have a great stay, we were recognised as returning guests and totally spoilt. Special Thanks to Gerrard the Maitre D whom went out of his way to ensure there was a good variety of Gluten free food available and for the delicious pasta and sauces and to Serena who looked after our table. Laura on reception thank you for all your advice about were to visit and how best to get there .And Thank you to all the other staff to many to mention for making my birthday special.
The hotel is in a perfect location set back from the lake so its peaceful yet only 2 minutes from the bus station ideal for catching trips to Verona, Malcensia to name a few . 5 minutes from the beautiful lake and restaurants. The decor is a little dated but typical of Italy and its immaculate clean with the room cleaned daily.
The rooms on the higher floors have better view and if you are at the front on a clear day can just about see the lake. The rooms at the back of the hotel have a view of the lovely pool and mountains.
Would defiantly recommend this hotel and hope to return again soon

Room Tip: rooms on higher floor are quieter and have better views

I have just come back from a week at La Perla and thoroughly enjoyed my stay. The hotel is less than 5 minutes from the lake and a 45 minute coach ride from Verona airport which was very convenient. Others which stayed there had come from Milan aiport which is 4 hours away. It is based on the main round which goes round the lake and there is a fair bit of traffic but our room was based at the back over looking the swimming pool and we did not hear any noise from the road. Although you can hear music being played at a hotel further up the road from 10.00 to 11.00 p.m. Sunday, Monday and Tuesday nights but all they sung was English ballads so it was quite nice. The church bell does ring a lot at 7.00 a.m. but this did add to the atmosphere. The room did have a television but you had to ask for an English channel if it does not have one - they did tune ours in to Sky News the following day after mentioning this.
The rooms are basic but very clean and do have a small balcony which has a full wooden shutter with holes in so we use to open the balcony door and keep the shutter down at night to let some air in but keep the light out.
The seating arrangements in the dining room were that you say at the same table for breakfast and dinner. On the first three nights we were placed with two others we did not know but it was good swapping stories of the places you had visited that day. Half way through the week this couple had left and we were on a table on our own so it was nice to have the mix. A word of advice is to be seated away from the areas to the left and right of the door to the restaurant as the seats along by the window always had the best service. Breakfast was help yourself and included cereals, toast, ham, cheese, fruit and a boiled egg if you asked for it. The only critisim I would is the main meal in the evening. At the beginning of the holiday there was about 150 sat down for dinner and you were waited on by the 3 staff so they were rushed off their feet. Dinner was at 7.00 but a good tip is to be there for 7.30 as they would take everyones drink order and bring them their drinks before the first course was served so there was no point getting in there so early. The starter was fine, usually soup or pasta, but the main meal was very small - child size portion - and usually contained no potatoes or vegetables to pad it out. We only had potatoes twice and peas once in the whole 7 nights. Pudding was usually a small portion of icecream or cake. You got the feeling they were doing the meals on a very tight budget and a few people on our organised holiday were moaning a lot. But saying this, the waiting staff made up for this in how hard they worked and the restaurant manager was very funny and spoke extremely good English as well as other languages. Although there was a lot of people he never forgot your face and shooed some Germans out of seats when they had mistakenly sat at our table.
Would definately go back to the hotel again. The north of the lake is much quieter - there is also a firework display on Saturday nights at 10.30 p.m. which is very, very loud as the sound bounces off the surrounding mountains.

Room Tip: Choose a room overlooking the swimming pool as this will not be on the main road.
