“Peaceful setting, but only 10 minutes from town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2009

Stayed for 3 nights at the Caravel over the August Bank Holiday 09. Chose a superior room as wanted a lake view and found the refurbished room to be very clean. Could have done with tea making facilities or a mini bar, but it did say on website that the rooms didn't have any, so wasn't surprised not to find them. Hotel has 2 swimming pools, 1 with bar and restaurant and the other with a bar - however this one is not poolside. We chose the pool without the restaurant as found this quieter and there were ample sunbeds and cushions. Breakfast was fine - usual cereals, toast, croissants, fruit, yoghurt, fruit juice, tea/coffee - seemed to cater for the german customer as lots of breads and cheeses and scrambled egg wasn't great. Breakfast tables were pre allocated, so no choice of where to sit and you had the same table each morning. Found hotel staff pleasant and happy to assist. A walk into Limone takes 10 minutes and is a steep walk back up to the hotel, however it was fine for two thirtysomethings. We ate in Ristorante Gemma on the lakeside by the fountain which lights up with changing colours and found the meal delicious - had to reserve table though. We also would recommend Al Pirate - pizzeria next to Alexander hotel - up hill past coach park on lakeside. Good bars - Ginny's on beach - played jazz and rock music, Bar Turistica - small balcony at back which has stunning views. We visited Malcesnie and Riva during our stay in Limone and thought Malcesnie had more bars/restaurants. However, overall for a 3 night stay Limone was perfect and the hotel was good.

This year we went back to the Caravel hotel. We were given a room at the Villa Eden because we had 2 teenagers who stayed in a adjacent room. The lakeview from our room was disturbed by the big olivetrees, but this did not matter, the hotel surrounding is great. Like last year, we had a super holiday again. Compared to last year, there was nothing new. Maybe this was a pitty but on the otherhand, good things may stay as they are. Congratulations to the staff of the Caravel Hotel !

On arrival greeted by very smiley face and shown to our room by the receptionist, the room was large and had been refurbished, the balcony had views of lake Garda and Dolomite mountains - brilliant !
The whole hotel had a fell good factor about it, great staff, very clean, beautiful flowers everywhere, central location - 10 mins walk from Limone.
The food and restaurant service superb, nothing was too much trouble for the staff and quality of the food first class, served mostly at your table.
Pleasant terrace area for drinks and lower pool area peaceful, upper pool good size with bar/snacks adjacent.
The one complaint was the temperature of the water in the bathroom, great shower and recently re furbished, but hot water on a timer and if you need a shower outside the timed hours be ready to shiver.
This hotel is well worth a visit if planning to stay around northern lake Garda.
Limone is very pretty and picturesque.
Travelled with First Choice, the reps, unusually were excellent from the airport to the resort.
Would highly recommend this hotel and Limone.

Pleasant hotel, friendly staff, decent pool and within walking distance to beautiful Limone. Limone it very picturesque with lots of character and quaint shops and many restaurants. We took a coach to Arena di Verona to the stunning and very memorable opera Aida!

At first I was a little annoyed to be put in this hotel after we booked through archers/cosmos to stay in the splendid, however they did compensate us and the hotel caravel was our replacement. The people we sat next to for dinner had been to splendid 3 times before and seemed to much prefer caravel overall.

For starters the room is pretty massive and you don't have squeeky beds or paper thin walls that means you can here whenever anyone gets up in the night (plaguing the rest of the hotels in Italy), The beds were 'ok' which is one of the reasons I hadn't rated it excellent as the pillow wasn't too effective, the rooms seemed to have everything apart from a mini fridge but I can live without that.

The staff at the hotel were all very friendly including the help desk, bar staff, waiters, cleaners and repair man!

The second reason why I only gave the hotel 4 is because there is no heated/indoor pool and when travelling in September even when its nice its too cold to swim in the top pool.

Finally Food, one of the best restaurants I've ever been which is great for a hotel with half board and I enjoyed the cakes mid afternoon ^_^

  • Liked — Food! It was amazing
  • Disliked — Garda as a whole is a big German destination so most staff speak 'better' German than English

My husband and I stayed here in August 2008.
Limone is very pretty,clean and in superb surroundings.
The hotel was lovely,the room and balcony were spacious and clean and the staff were polite and helpful.
Most of the staff had a very good command of the English language ( we are typically British - too old and lazy to learn other languages!)

The food selection was good and varied and well presented.

We had some excellent day trips in the area.

One small complaint (definitely age-related..) was that coming up from the lakeside the road got a litle steep, especially at the end of the day..

Stayed here for a week with my husband and 2 teenagers (14 and 17). Fantastic hotel for families with children of any age, and for older people who don't mind having children around. Not so good for romantic couples.

What's good: location in Limone convenient for town (10 min walk) and public beach (3 minute walk). Superb food - huge variety for breakfast; free cakes served mid afternoon; amazing 5 course suppers with plenty of choice; all to a standard exceeding our expectations. Great outdoor area - pleasant terrace, 2 pools with plenty of sunloungers and beautiful view. Friendly, helpful and very efficient staff (restaurant staff really helpful about my son's egg allergy). Generally a clean and very well run hotel.

What's not so good: Must stress first that we had a great holiday at this hotel, and this comment is only for people who are really bothered by aesthetics...... the decor is very dated. Also, the restaurant is vast and lacking in ambiance - although, having said that it's lively and full of chatter!
