“kept coming back for more”
Reviewed August 18, 2007

We have just returned from our fifth visit to the Hotel Villa Letizia in Bardolino, Lake Garda. Having gone the first time through a travel agent we were smitten with the friendly, personal atmosphere of the hotel. As a result we have returned each year for the past five years, booking direct by email and we find it an extremely pleasant place in which to relax. If you're looking for a large pool, live music every night and masses of people, don't choose the Villa Letizia. It appeals to us because of the high standards of cleanliness, good food and very friendly personal service. As someone with special dietary needs, it is really important to have the confidence in the hotel's ability and willingness to cater appropriately.
The hotel is situated right by the lake and so gives superb views and has easy access to Bardolino itself and to many other places around the lake and further afield.
We live a busy lifestyle and need somewhere where we can really relax on our holidays. The Hotel Villa Letizia provides exactly what we need and, if like us you are looking for a smaller, friendly hotel where you can unwind and relax whilst receiving excellent service, I would highly recommend it as somewhere to stay for your holiday on Lake Garda.

Stayed August 2007

This is a small hotel with limited facilities, so if you're looking for infinity pools and casinos don't go for the Villa Letizia, which can provide only a rooftop tub and a pleasant patio bar. On the other hand, if you value a superb lakefront location, excellent food and exemplary cleanliness, this hotel will more than meet your needs. The staff are friendly and obliging, especially in the restaurant where they are unobtrusive yet always on hand when you need them. We were initially disappointed in the utilitarian appearance of our room, the apparent firmness of the mattresses, and the size and outlook of the "balcony" which could barely accommodate the plastic furniture far less the people to sit on it. However we soon found that after a day's activity it was always a pleasure to return to the cool of our room (the A/C doesn't automatically go off when you go out), and we always slept soundly on beds that turned out to be incredibly comfortable despite first appearances.
The Villa Letizia plays to its strengths and we enjoyed our stay so much that when we return to Bardolino our first stop will be at this welcoming hotel.

Good location – on the lake front. Has a rooftop sun terrace, together with a further area on the gravel “beach” (which we found to be pleasanter). Smallish hotel with 40+ rooms – adequate size and small balcony, air conditioned.

Friendly & efficient staff. Breakfast buffet has all the “standards” expected in European holiday hotels – pastries, fruit, cereal, cheese, ham, etc. Dinner includes a salad, four choices of starters (normally including a soup and a pasta), four main courses and three desserts. Starters and mains normally include veggie and fish options. The salad is a buffet with the remaining courses being served to you. In the Italian way, potato and vegetables with the main course are little more than a garnish. We were pleasantly surprised at the quality and variety of the food. Dinner selections have to be made at breakfast, though.

For a change, we ate out a couple of nights. Bardolino is full of restaurants – all of which seems to be of good quality and a reasonable price. They have a much wider selection of pizzas than we are used to in the UK and of a much better quality – we tried these on several lunchtimes. The centre of town is only a 10 minute stroll.

The ferry is a great way to get about and see some of the other nearby villages and small towns and would particularly recommend trips to Lazise and Garda (although both are only a hours stroll away) and Sirmione and Malcesne.

We would certainly consider staying in Bardolino again and at the Villa Letizia. It was a very relaxing 10 days. We’d also think about staying in Sirmione.

This was our second visit to Lake Garda but first time in Bardolino. This is a very nice, comfortable and friendly hotel. The rooms are well maintained and there was always a plentiful supply of hot water, towels etc. Their breakfasts were wonderful - we were spoilt for choice. The evening meals were good on some days and not so good on others but on the whole the choice was good - especially the salad and pasta dishes.

We had a side room facing the Hotel Gritti and Krizz International which was a reasonable size and quiet most of the time. However, on the Saturday night there was noise from a Wedding Reception taking place at the Hotel Gritti which went on past midnight. The balconies on this side of the hotel are smallish and lack shade when the sun is at its strongest - no problem if you do not have sun sensitive skin but difficult if, like me, you prefer shade. However, the rooftop sun terrace has sunbeds and umbrellas so I used these instead.

We enjoyed the bar service in the evenings rather than going into Bardolino.

Evening walks along the promenade were spoilt by the swarms of midgies/mosquitoes some evenings and you need to take insect repellent with you if you are prone to being bitten. The view of the sunset from the promenade was magnificent.

We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel. the staff were very friendly and helpful, the food was the best we have ever had abroad, the room was very comfortable and the location of the hotel was perfect as it faces Lake Garda. This place deserves a gold star for really adding to what was a wonderful holiday.
