The hotel La Palma was great in every way except for the shower. The staff was friendly and very helpful. The location was perfect. The room was HUGE with a king size bed. The wrap around balcony gave us an AMAZING view of the town, the coastline, the islands and the lake with the mountains in the background!!!!! The bathroom was huge with double sink marble vanity, a large jacuzzi tub and the worst shower known to man. It was a cheap, plastic, wrap around enclosure with no room to move in it. If you turned around without paying attention your elbow would hit the shower control valve and the water temp would change on you. Your elbows would hit the curved doors when you washed your hair. My wife gave up on the shower after the second day and used the tub with its hand held shower. They really blew it with the shower. Other than that the Hotel La Palma was amazing. Also worth mentioning are the spa and rooftop pool & bar. There is a marble infinity edge pool with a view of Stresa and the islands that is to die for. Truly first class. How they dropped the ball on the shower is beyond me.
