Everything about Luna Del Porto exceeded our expectations. My Husband and I decided to elope in Italy (May 2009) and chose Stresa as our spot. Lago Maggiore was a gorgeous backdrop for the nuptials and Luna Del Porto played a major role in the fairytale. From the moment we arrived we were impressed by not only the lovely grounds, but the delightful staff. Amazing fresh flower arrangements adorn the common areas alone with delectable chocolate treats. We had a one bedroom- 2 bath apartment on the first floor with two sets of doors that opened to a green area overlooking the lake and mountain views.
The room was large, clean and decorated with timeless furnishings. Since this was our wedding trip we had talked about staying in one of the large fancy hotels but ultimately decided on Luna and we are so thankful we did. Not only did we save a ton of money, but we made friends for life and created marvelous memories. Everyday there was a large array of breakfast items that included fresh fruits, vegetables, pastries, cheese, meats, yogurt, jams and bread. Fresh cappuccino or espresso made to order along with juice and tea. Breakfast could be taken inside the elegantly set dining area or outside on the veranda.
Getting married in Italy isn’t an easy process and we had many steps to complete paperwork. Neither my Husband nor I spoke Italian and relied heavily on the help from all of the staff at the Hotel. Everyone was so helpful but none more than Simona. Once we completed the mountain of paperwork we mentioned that we were in need of a photographer and two witnesses and coincidently Simona mentioned that her husband (Alberto) was a photographer. Arrangements were made for Alberto to come to the hotel to photograph us and then follow to town hall just a few blocks away.
The staff went out of their way to make our trip the most memorable experience. On the evening of our wedding they had set up a tray of Champagne and treats with a note of congratulations. I would highly recommend this hotel for the prime location, cleanliness, amply room, lake/mountain views, breakfast, price, amenities (kitchenette and washer/dryer use) and mostly for the caring staff. We look forward to returning for many years of anniversaries.
