This is quite a new hotel and has been built and furnished in an elegant, light and modern way with much use of marble in the common areas and bathrooms. The rooms are large, light and bright and have lots of storage space, very comfy large beds and a really nice shower room. The staff here are all very accommodating and the service in the restaurant and standard of room cleanliness are to be highly praised. You are very unlikely to go hungry here; the breakfasts had a huge choice, including cooked and continental choices with fruit, cereals, toast, pastries and even prosecco. Evening meals were 4 courses and of a very high standard. We were on the second floor of six. We did not have a lake view, and I suspect that very few rooms would have one,however we had lovely mountain views and the vistas from floor 6 (the Sky Pool) which can be enjoyed by everyone, are truly magnificent and 360 degrees of lake and beautiful mountains. Low key evening entertainment (piano and other music) is on for, I believe 5 nights each week. This is one hotel we would definitely love to return to.
If you are booking your hotel independently and do not have transfers included be aware that the prices we were quoted, for taxi transfers from the Airport at Verona, were around £325 return. We took the airport shuttle bus to Verona (which runs every 20 minutes and takes about the same journey time) for EUR 6 each, single, then caught the ATV local NO 162 bus service direct to Riva del Garda (about 50 miles I think). It leaves from near the train station that the Airport bus arrives at. The bus was air-conditioned, had plenty of luggage storage room, took a very scenic route all along the western edge of the lake to Riva stopping at lots of resorts and cost about EUR 7 each, single (Bargain!). Local buses are also a great way to get around whilst in Riva. The promenade along the lake in both directions from the hotel is beautiful well maintained and really clean it was a pleasure to walk into Riva or to Torbole. The hotel has bikes which you can borrow free of charge for a few hours so you can cycle along the promenade cycle path to Torbole or Riva easily. Excusions are readily available to Venice, Verona, Milan, the Dolomites with the tour reps.Can't wait to go back
