“Weather let us down”
Reviewed June 24, 2010

We too have just returned from Italy (June 21st 2010) We had almost constant rain and a storm, whilst we stayed in Bardolino.This naturally affected our response to our one week 'holiday' However the loyal 'veterans' of Hotel Nettuno assured us that in all the years they had been visiting ( this varied from five years running to fifteen years running!!!) they had never experienced rain.....or the cold, which we suffered. We'd selected the hotel based on reviews on Trip Advisor and although most of what is written we would agree with, it felt rather out of our age group.( we felt too young and we are in our fifties) However people do seem to really enjoy themselves and are all thoroughly spoiled and entertained by Lois, a total charmer ,who prides himself on knowing his clients extremely well.
The food is excellent and the entire staff ( especially the ladies who clean the rooms) are professional, very friendly and do go out of their way to make sure everyone's needs are met.The hotel is in an excellent situation on Lake Garda and the view (on a clear day or evening) is magical.But.......the hotel looks jaded, dated and in need of an overhaul.It is a small hotel with few rooms with balconies and the decor and bathing facilities of the remaining rooms are old fashioned and rather basic, although it is always kept spotlessly clean.Side view rooms do feel claustrophobic and dark.
You can't help but feel disloyal criticising the hotel as it really does work for people who have been returning year after year.It's very popularity means that to actually get a room with a balcony means booking a year in advance. Italy is not inexpensive and we do feel that we would not put this particular hotel at the top of the our 'favourites' list. Oh well' each to his own' as they say.

We stayed at the Nettuno last year after reading tripadvisor comments and were not disappointed. We went back this year and it was just as good as we remembered. The staff are friendly and very helpful. On both stays we had good rooms, but we understand that some rooms are quite small. The hotel is very well situated right on the lake giving wonderful views from the dining room and terrace. The dining experience is the highlight of the holiday orchestrated by the endlessly entertaining Maitre'd, Loris who wants you to enjoy every minute of your stay and hopefully return, which we will be doing for a third time.

My wife and I have just returned from a one week stay at the Nettuno in Bardolino and we could not have been treated better. Although the bedrooms are small in comparison to many of the bigger hotels we have stayed in and could do with a lick of paint they were clean and comfortable. We requested a balcony, which we got, but our room was located at the front of the hotel and my wife thought it would be noisy. That thought was far from the truth as we hardy heard a sound the whole week, other than the birds in the trees in a small public garden area across the road. We were told that if you want a balcony and lake view you would have to book a year in advance and I can well accept that comment as customers return year after year. As was mentioned to us it is not just the building or its location, which could not have been more perfect being on the lakefront, that makes a holiday but also the staff all of whom could not have been more friendly and helpfull. Particular mention must be given to the headwaiter, Loris, who could not have given better service and assistance if he worked at a five star city hotel. His sense of humour and banter with all the guests, in their native language, made our holiday one that we will never forget. He knows how far he can go with his joking with each customer and he soon becomes aware of their food likes and dislikes. In addition if a dish was not to your taste he would offer a replacement immediately and his local wine knowledge was second to none offering the correct taste at the right price. We stayed in room 216, or as Loris said on our first day 21sex, testing our sense of humour.
A final comment concerning the food was that it was of the highest quality, standard of preparation, look and taste and there was always something on the menu to satisfy every guest.

My only further request from any guest staying this June or from Loris is will you please tell me how many ducklings the resident duck has and ensure that they go to the lake before the orange sauce is prepared.

We have just returned from a fantastic holiday at the Hotel Nettuno in Bardalino Lake Garda. As soon as we arrived all the staff gave us a very warm welcome and we immediately felt at home. It was a very well run hotel with a friendly feel about it, we enjoyed all our meals and the service was impeccable in particular the head waiter Loris made our stay special he was undoubtedly the ultimat professional an absolute star of the show. While we were on holiday we got engaged in Venice and on our return to the hotel in the evening Loris arranged our table for romantic evening in the hotel. Overall our holiday experince at the Hotel Nettuno was one that we will never forget and we will definately go back there and recommend to others

The lakeside location is perfect and only 5 minutes walk from the centre of Bardolino itself. The rooms were thoroughly cleaned daily and the rest of the hotel and grounds were always spotless. The only criticism with the room is the size of the shower cubicle (as mentioned by others) which can only be described as "adequate."
The quality of the food is superb and Loris, the maître d' is both attentive and friendly. He made a fuss of our children (2 and 4 years old) who really enjoyed his entertaining manner.
We highly recommend both the resort and hotel to anyone and everyone and we hope to return in the future.

We have just had a wonderful week at the Hotel Nettuno with our beautiful daughter Sophie (19 months) and son Thomas (4 months). The hotel staff were superb. They provided cots in the room and a high chair in the restaurant. Sophie was given pasta/risotto with choice of desert in the evening and the children were always kept entertained and made to feel welcome. Our room overlooked the park which was ok. Our big Out n' About double buggy just fit in the lift. The hotel has a fantastic position on the lake and just minutes from the centre of Bardolino. The resort is beautiful, best position for sun on the lake, very flat and baby buggy friendly.
