I'm running out of superlatives to describe the amazing Marina and her wonderful team! the efforts thy go to spoil the guest are quite out of this world. This time we had an evening of swordfish steak from a huge swordfish which had been flown in. It was supremely fresh and delicious. This was the cherry on a cake of excellent food every day, beautiful bike rides with expert guides and the most relaxing and pampering hotel spa you can imagine. there really is nowhere else like it for a cycling holiday. you might need to book early because they fill up quickly with repeat customers. Ciao!
We spent a wonderful week at the Belvedere with several friends and doing a number of the 5 rides of varying difficulty each day between us. The rides were lovely once out of Riccione with great countryside and views and lovely places to stop for coffee. Several of the days featured other activities eg BBQ at a country villa, trip to winery with tasting and lunch, and a trip to San Marino which varied the days and the rides. The guides were good esp Danilo. The staff were all very friendly and helpful and the food very good. The whole week had a lovely friendly atmosphere and it was a special time. I just wonder if some e-biles should be offered for some partners.
Our 2nd time to enjoy the Belvedere Bicycle Hotel experience. We had such an awesome time. The food all week and special events are off the charts delicious and fun. The guides are fantastic - experienced and knowledgeable, caring and helpful. The DeRosa bikes are top notch and the routes scenic and enjoyable. Everything is so well organized and carried out flawlessly, Marina and her team work VERY hard to deliver this to us. We met wonderful people, cycled hard, ate exceptionally well, and had many hearty laughs along the way.
I will be running out of adjectives to describe my experience at Hotel Belvedere. You can be someone who is looking to expand their cycling ability, someone completely new to the sport, or a high-level cyclist who wants to take it to the next level - the Hotel Belvedere will accommodate just that and beyond. Everything is just simply DIALED, from the staff, to the Tour Guides taking you to magical places, to the hotel rooms themselves, you cannot ask for more for a cycling trip. Don't get me started on how great the food was... Marina will host you as if you are a member of her family, and that feeling trickles down to the staff who will always greet you with a smile and ready to assist you. This is truly a bucket list experience that I will highly recommend to everyone I know!
Marina and her team at Hotel Belvedere are the absolute best. We spent 7 days there cycling beautiful routes with their wonderful guides, eating incredible food at the restaurant, and enjoying all the amazing activities they had organized for us. I will be back as soon as I can and would recommend the Belvedere to everyone.
We had a fantastic trip hosted by Hotel Belvedere. It was my first time here, and all the staff make you feel like you're at home. Every single person here goes above and beyond, to make sure you have a magical experience.
I have been to the Belvedere more than 10 times, and for good reason. From the moment you arrive to your departure, they treat you like family. Not because I am a regular, this started rom day 1 back in 2005. Over the year, the hotel has matured, offering more activities and experiences. They change the cycling routes so that you feel that its all new. The best parts that have not changed is the amazing and welcoming atmoshere and I hate to sound flacky, but real care, interest and I dare say love. For foodies, though most meals are buffet style, rest assured that you will be amazed at the variety and quality. For an all inclusive Italian experience, I highly recommend you go; you will not be disappointed. neil
We were extremely lucky with the weather, but it is Marina and her staff who really make the difference. Always smiling and you are treated like a member of the family without compromising on professionalism. It's really good to live there, and you get recharged for a hectic everyday life when you have to go back home.
Our stay at the Belvedere Hotel for a week of cycling was one of the highlights of our trip and I will probably never have a cycling experience on this scale again. The owner, Marina Pasquini, and her incredible team saw to every comfort of the guests and ensured that there were lots of opportunity to socialize and meet the other guests. Marina’s superpower is that she makes every guest feel special and their experience magical. We were the second to last group to stay at the hotel for the season but the attention to detail and enthusiasm from all the staff was the same as if we were the first group of the season. The biking guides were awesome and led us on the most exciting and challenging tours every day. We were in the easiest group called LEISURE and our guides Lorenzo and Marco gently pushed us to get beyond our comfort level doing the climbs. The cycling through the countryside was spectacular and we stopped frequently so that Lorenzo could provide the history of the area. The food back at the hotel was a culinary delight with the kitchen team putting out so many lovely salads, pastas, main courses and desserts every lunch and dinner as well as delicious breakfasts to fuel us up for our rides. Even our cycling kit was laundered every day and ready in the morning. I had booked this trip for May 2020 and had to reschedule twice due to COVID. I was a bit nervous that my experience would not meet my high expectations based on friends and online reviews. However my experience far exceeded my expectations and I highly recommend this resort.…
This was our second visit to Hotel Belvedere and both visits have been fantastic. We went to cycle and the hotel is a great destination for both cycling and luxuriating. The hotel provides wonderful rooms, all meals (the food is excellent), nightly events and parties, and talented and charming bike guides all included in the price. Additional services like an on-site bike mechanic and nightly bike gear laundry are also included. It is the excellent staff that really sets the hotel apart and it all starts with Marina, the owner. She is very committed to the enjoyment of her guests and is a born host. For example, even though she is quite busy, she took the time after we left to send us multiple recipes for a liquor she had provided. Marina’s host skills are reflected in her staff. On return after our first visit, Julia and Gulia greeted us as old friends. Claudio make several daily tweaks to the fit of my wife’s bike and laughed and joked with us each time. The dining and kitchen staff greeted us each morning after likely having worked long hours the previous day. The bike guides are a special part of the Hotel Belvedere experience and each bring their own personalities to their tours. Lorenzo gave us historical and architectural details of all the hilltop castles we visited. Paolo sang for us at cappuccino stops. Renzo cheered those of us in the back while blocking traffic when we proceeded through roundabouts. Each event or party made every day special. The lunch at Muretti Farm and the closing night party are probably two of the most fun events I have ever attended. Seriously … snow machines and Dolomites food for the closing part!?! Obviously, we really like the Hotel Belvedere and would highly recommend it.…
