Beautiful location on quaint Ascona. Excellent service, you cannot overstate this. The food was extraordinary. Next to a golf club. The location is nice but not particularly set to go for a walk and run into restaurants as it is a good two miles from downtown. Luxurious and romantic.

This hotel is fantastic. Since my stay in this hotel in Ascona, I stayed at their other hotel by the lake in Minusio and I can safely say this chain deserves more praise and attention. Such an amazing example of hospitality! Staff is extraordinary, food is great quality and just generally everything here screams taste, quality and tranquility. Perfectly located... More

Set in fantastic grounds, in a villa like setting, this is luxury at its best. Did not get to stay at this hotel but did enjoy afternoon tea here with friends and everything about the hotel is superb. The dining areas, the sitting area and the outdoor settings are perfect in every way make it a most diving relaxing space.

when booking "southfacing suite" you assume something with a view? right? not in this place! here you get a suite with a balcony directly facing into the toilet windows of the building in front (see the photo attached...) the setting of the hotel as such and the interiors are nice. reception staff and concierge are very helpful. not so much...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The name that now unites all Giardino Retreats and Resorts was born here. The hotel Giardino Ascona combines a laid-back ambience, a high-level of service and charismatic design to a place of Mediterranean savoir-vivre. Breathe, relax, stroll, chill, move, marvel or simply enjoy - this Soul Retreat provides undiluted relaxation with character. At the Giardino Ascona there are plenty of gastronomic surprises with the Aphrodite or Poolside restaurants. The culinary highlight is undisputably the Ecco restaurant which has been awarded with two Michelin stars. It stands for outstanding aroma cuisine and puristic intensity, which is restaged every day through the inspired ideas of Executive Chef Rolf Fliegauf. The dipiù Spa promises a world of vitality, beauty and equilibrium and offers ample space to find peace to strengthen body and soul. With its products and treatments dipiù proves that it stands for quality, authenticity and sustainability. ... more   less
