“We certainly want to stay here again !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2014

We came here as a family of 4 (2 kids with age 5 and 3).

First, the hotel has great infrastructure. Other than normal hotel facilities (restaurant, spa etc),it has a big garden with outdoor playground for small kids, a little farm with donkeys and horses, direct access to a nice beach.

Second, the staff is super friendly and professional. When we checked out, there was even a senior management to come over and say farewell to us with a little souvenir. They really demonstrate how important they treasure their customers.

We spent our Easter holiday there so there's extra fun. We have easter egg in room, unlimited access to easter eggs, bunny during breakfast time. There is also an easter hunt for little kids. Each come back with a big basket of Lindt chocolate !

It was our second visit this year just before the winter closure. We thought the service was even more attentive and the staff more helpful and charming than before - even though this was hardly possible. For the first time we had booked halfboard and the food was superb (e.g. a fantastic fish buffet). Once again we enjoyed the beautiful and tranquil gardens and spent an afternoon reading under the trees in the warm autumn sun - paradise! We´ll be back!

I have passed a week end at the hotel with my family, although we booked a suite but we were given a 3 room suite, the largest suite I have ever had. The day stated with a breakfast in the garden with a well prepared and good buffet combined with a very pleasant and friendly service. Concierge service arranged for many things we desired in great efficiency, the dinner was very pleasant with the same friendly service. I did not try the SPA but had my half an hour swim in the pool, which was very enjoyable for the water had 31c and half the pool extended to the exterior. If you want to treat yourself in Ascona, this place is a must.

Room Tip: if you have a slight wind, try sailing from Ascona, you coudl return to the Marina near the hotel

Beside all the amenities it offers for families, couples and solo travellers, the Castello provides a remarkable infrastructure for cyclists as well. A fully equipped bicycle repository, offering towels, fresh water, mechanic tools, air pump, etc. is at every guests disposal and is a perfect starting and arrival point for a tour into one of the dozens of adjacent valleys. Last but not least: if you're looking for some tips and directions, ask the hotel director. He is a passionate cyclist himself...

Stayed for 4 days. Excellent attentive service. Beautiful hotel with lovely grounds and gardens. right on the side of the lake. Has the atmosphere of a family-run establishment. Al fresco dining on the lawn and super relaxing evenings. Fantastic Spa and tennis facilities.

My family and I spent a week at Castello del Sole in July and had a wonderful time. The hotel itself is stunning, in a beautiful garden setting located on the side of the lake. The main restaurant permits al fresco dining under the trees while the kids play on the lawn - it could not have been better! We rented the small (somewhat underpowered) motor boat one day and explored the lake; another day we took bikes and visited Ascona and the local area. People were friendly everywhere. The kids particularly enjoyed the water park that is an approx 20 minute bike ride from the hotel.
The hotel staff were very friendly and got to know us quickly - ensuring we had a lawn-side table and our favorite wine every night. The pool area is lovely and the spa facility is top class. Our room (in one of the Pavillions) was very well appointed and very comfortable. Overall, I would recommend this hotel as one of the best in Switzerland and definitely the best I have visited in the lakes region.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Pavillion Lacarno - good size rooms for families.
