My brothers and I chose this place since it was the only place that we could find around the southern part of Lago Como that could fit three families into one single location without having the burden of paying for several hotel rooms.
The Pros are the location, the attractive price, the parking place and the number of apartments that could accommodate several families in one location.
The Cons are apartments which can fit 2 adults and 2 kids at the most (We happen to have grown up kids and space was lacking), quite far away from the lake (no walking distance and not even bicycle ride - though I do admit that this is advertised as such), no real breakfast, no management on site to resolve issues, no space outside the apartments for kids to play, no restaurants or shops in a walking distance.
So basically if you are looking for a place just to sleep which is a close ride from Lago Como and Lago Lugano and inexpensive - this is a great place. If you are looking for something even slightly more than that - than look elsewhere.
The funny issue for us was that this property is situated only three hundred meters/yards from the Swiss border. As such that the closest shops and supermarkets to the facility are on the Swiss side and you will need to carry you passport if you go shopping. As a matter of fact, if I remember correctly - the gaz station right after the border stop has better rates than it's counterparts in Italy.
