“Not a quiet retreat for couples, make sure you take plenty of earplugs!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2010

My husband and I recently returned from 2 weeks at the Residence Pratone.
We hoped for a quiet, relaxing retreat but unfortunately, this was not the case.
We took a 2 bed apartment, which was over Two floors.
It consisted of an extremely small patio area, which was overlooked by many other apartments.
There was a open plan lounge/dining kitchen with only an insufficient 4 ring hob to cook on.
There was a double and twin room upstairs, both decent sizes and a bathroom with Shower.
The accomodation was very clean but as the Climate became more rainy, the celing & wall in the bathroom showed a large amount of damp. as we were leaving, there was also damp appearing in the lounge.
Our major problem was that the walls seperating the apartments (we were attached to at least 3 ) were paper thin so you could hear everything that went on in the adjoining apartments, which included a lot of babies & children who awoke and cried very early, toilets flushing & the showers being used and the singing from the group next door at midnight!
The resort appears to be set up for the German tourists, as we were the only English tourists there at the time. This included having about 6 t.v chanels, 2 in italian, the rest in German.
The location is up a steep hill, which the less mobile would definately struggle with.
To walk to Garda town, you must decend the hill, walk along the busy road (no pavements) for 50/100M and there are locked gates which gives access down to the lake. we were given a key for the gates, which proved invaluable, but a few days before we left, they were locked & we could not use them.
We also had to buy a torch because if we ate out in Garda (not great) in an evening, the last part of the walk home was unlit.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2006

Excellet location, bascic but spotlessley clean accomodation. The pool was lovely and warm and had no time limit, it was also never crowded. The walk to gate was a bit of a pain because there are no paths, you have to walk on the side of the road however it is only a 5 minute walk at the most. However once you get to the lake it is well worth it. I would strongly reccomend it.

  • Liked — Near to the lake
  • Disliked — No air conditioning
  • Tips/Secrets — Take a fan in the summer months

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2006

very clean and tidy apartments and complex, but very basic, our apartment didnt have an oven or grill. The road at the bottom gets very busy and there aren't any pavements as such until you get into Garda. The complex is on the side of quite a steep hill so not easy access for young children, pushchairs or anyone else with mobility difficulties, but for the 4 of us the accomodation was more than adequate.

Although quite basic, these apartments were comfortable and spotless. The swimming pool never got crowded, and it is easy to access the lake. Garda town is a short pleasant walk. I would have no hesitation staying here again.
