Really lovely hotel with great facilities and super "simpa" staff. Good facilities including spa, pools etc Lovely location net to the lake. Two restaurants but even the "basic" one served really good food and we are foodies. Very warm welcome. Altogether a gem.

This is my second review of this proud institution and in hindsight, though I awarded 5- stars, I understated how wonderful CdS really is. In addition to the magnificent setting along the lake beachfront amidst pastoral farmland and vineyards, the facilities are beautifully maintained, the food is wonderful and for the most part locally sourced, and the access to charming Ascona make this a great escape. What really stands out however is the professionalism, friendliness and pride of the staff who appear unrelentingly committed to the well-being and happiness of their guests. The attention to detail in every sense is remarkable and rare in today's commoditized world of luxury travel. I couldn't recommend more highly.

Describing itself as a Beach Resort and Spa put me off a bit. When we arrived we found a high quality Relais and Chateau property of the highest standard. the hotel is situated in lovely grounds which front onto the lake. Maybe in the height of summer it takes on a resort vibe. For us it was relaxing and what really made the experience was the friendly and helpful people running the property. At every level a delight. We ate in the main restaurant Locanda Barbarossa and absolutely loved it. Sergio Bassi, the Maitre/Sommelier, and his colleague Massimo were fantastic and contributed to making the experience wonderful. We ate here twice as a result. Cant wait to come back.

We had a great stay at this hotel and a great dinner in the Tre Stagioni restaurant. The facilities are excellent and the huge parkland ending on the shores of the lake is just beautiful. The only reason I couldn't give it the full 5 stars is because at the checkout the only question we were asked was if we had anything from the minibar. We were the only guests at the reception so there was no reason for the lady at the desk not at least ask if we had a nice stay and if everything was ok. This should be standard at any hotel, but especially at a hotel like this. So we left quite disappointed after a wonderful stay.
