“lazy days”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

Room lovely except our view was of a tree trunk. So get a second floor room as advised. Don't attempt to leave otherwise the whole idea of place will be lost. Embrace the philosophy and then it makes sense. We attempted all the free taster sessions and could not have been treated better or taught with more interest. Food was fine but veered on the expensive side

Room Tip: higher floor

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

booked as a base to tour the Lake Garda region but spent most of the time at the resort. Superb private location half way up the mountain outside Gargnano. The resort is modern, spotless and frequented by a very international clientele. The Spa is without doubt one of the best in Europe and coupled with great food, superb views and a lovely pool area to lounge around it is a perfect place to do relatively little for a few days. Terrific attentive service and my daughter aged 7 was kept occupied at the kids club. An expensive indulgence but a well deserved treat!

The hotel is one of its kind. I love the way it is designed around the spa. Excellent food service and spa. Ernesto in the bar made it that much more specially with his attentive service. Being in the Hotel business myself I think this Hotel is one I regard as a jewell.

We spent 4 nights here and it really is an exceptional hotel. Every detail has been thought about, it is Eco- friendly and the Spa the best we have ever been to. Our suite was fantastic, with stunning views and 'private' sun deck. The Spa was absolutely incredible, too many treatments to choose from but the ones we had were fabulous. They are über professional and the facilities truly 5*. Try the various saunas....but be prepared to go au natural, and don't forget to relax on the water beds in the relaxation area. Food was excellent, again too much choice and everything absolutely delicious. Staff/service a credit to the hotel. Would not hesitate to recommend, just go, chill and enjoy.

Room Tip: We had a lovely quiet suite near one of the contemplation areas (white tiger).

Excellent reception staff and waiting staff. Stunning location. So fabulously clean and serviced. Great food, lovely service from all staff. Trattoria is best eating experience. 6k drive up into hills is a winding killer so choose your stay to stay put. We stayed 3 nights on our Honeymoon trip to Italy and as it was gloriously sunny it was a perfect break by the pool with lovely meals. Couldn't have been better. On the day we left it poured with rain and for us we were not sure what we would have done had it been like that when we were there however you can swim and lie and relax inside as plenty of facilities but not the same as being outside with the views. We will go back.

Room Tip: All the rooms seemed lovely. We loved our suite.

This is a five star hotel/resort and delivers on expectations. We stayed two nights and not being "resort" people we were a little unsure how it would go. It was sublime, everything about our stay from arrival to departure was great. The room was fantastic, water, fruit, large bathroom with spa bath and shower, amazingly comfortable bed, and a balcony with table and chairs. The weather was a little cold, hazy and misty, but the heated pools made our swims surreal! There are walking tracks, gym, spa etc, and a fabulous lounge/ bar area for just sitting and taking in the view, The breakfast selection was excellent, everything you could possibly want, the downstairs Trattoria was excellent, although the upstairs restaurant service felt a little rushed. Overall food was excellent. Staff were all exceedingly friendly, knowledgable and keen to please. We found other guests to be relaxed and friendly - maybe walking round in your robe all day has a great levelling effect! We wished we had booked a longer stay and next time would certainly use the extensive spa and treatments available.

Room Tip: Opt for a first or second floor room as you will have a balcony and views.

I didnt like the employees in the restaurante during dinner and breakfast where a disaster!
Aso I did the check out with a girl called Barbara that was very inappropriate!

In general the Hotel is very nice and the Location is beautiful.

Dear Guest,

thank you for providing us with your kind feedback.

We think that the way you described the people working at the Resort with passion and commitment every day is really unfair.

We can reassure you that, as a company, we significantly invest in the attitude and professional growth of our staff as we consider them the most important success factors in our activity; the numerous international awards gained by Lefay Resort in just five years since its opening are primarily the result of the excellence of the people working here.
We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience you might have encountered during your stay and we will make sure that the appropriate actions will be taken so that the service provided by all our staff members is in line with the high-quality standards of our Resort.
I look forward to the pleasure of welcoming you again and I send you our best regards from Lake Garda.
