“Not bad, but not great”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2006

We stayed at the Vo in May 2006 and although it was quite basic we had no major problems. The apartment was large, clean and modern (although the plumbing was a bit smelly!) and had all the facilities we needed (but I do think our apartment had recently been built, so there maybe older style ones). Kitchen was tiny but again had everything we needed.

There was a great view from our balcony (we had one of the lakeside 'E' type apartments). As the other review says the pool was on the other side of the road, but can't understand why they say they had to cross the road as there is an underpass leading to/from either side so this was not a problem at all. There was also very easy access to the lakeside which had good views. Entrance/exit gates are locked at night for security but you are provided with a code for 24 hour access.

Because we were there in May, we had no problem at all with crowds or noise - but can't say what it would be like in high season. We took our car and found parking OK, but wouldn't like to take a car in high season when the place is busy, also the town is a couple of miles down the road for food/shopping, so might not be great if you have little ones etc. and have to rely on public transport.

We only dealt with the staff on check in, but found them to be helpful and polite, so no problems there.

All in all, not a bad place to stay.

1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2005

We were looking for a good value hotel staying at Lake Garda in Italy.
We searched the Internet and found the Villagio Turistico Vo' which was recommended by the Italian Tourist Board.

When we arrived we checked in and were directed to our room. Firstly, half of the resort was across a busy road which we had to cross to get to our room.
When we entered the room we were shocked to find a very dated decor and furniture with tiny kitchen which had just two gas hobs. Further more the crockery was chipped and with essential items missing.

We decided that this was not 'the end of the world' and began to unpack. Our room had a patio area with only two chairs. I thought this was odd as we had booked for 4 people, so I took one from the unoccupied room next door. Later on in the holiday a cleaner asked us to return the chair to the other room, which we need, but asked were we could get another one from. She said that we could get one from the pool. The next day another member of staff told us to return the chair to the pool area as we were only allowed 2 chairs!! Well of course we were not happy with this and refused to return the chair.

That evening we went out for a meal and when we returned the chair had been moved back to the pool and it was now raining so all the chairs by the pool were soaking wet. I could not believe that these people could be so petty and inconsiderate especially as we were supposed to be guests on holiday.

In conclusion, the staff were rude and inconsiderate. The accomodation dated and poorly maintained, although it was clean. Also, the walls were extremely thin, and I was woken on two occasions by the baby crying next door. Finally, we never used the pool as it was over-crowded and noisy.

Luckily we had a great time whilst we were away from the (Hidey Hi Style) resort, and we would return to the area but definateley not to The Vilaggio Turistico Vo' resort.
