“amazing place”
Reviewed December 17, 2012

Went for our honeymoon, everything was excellent, the room, the restaurant, the location. Want to go back but apparently I'm not allowed because it could never be as good!

Only down side was the random stragglers who seemed to come off of the boulevard to use the pool as the front gate was left wide open! don't know if this was to attract people in to buy drinks, but made to pool area feel a little exposed, but never seemed to be a problem.

definitely go if you can afford it (not cheap!)

A great friend of mine has booked a table for a nice evening at the restaurant of this hotel. We order an apperative and to compliment we were given very good finger food. The service and food was very good. The head waiter explained in detail the food and wine. We eat facing the nice view of Lake Garda and the mountain.

We visited for three days for our silver wedding anniversary. From the moment we entered the hotel we knew it was special. Our car keys were whisked away and we were given a personal tour of the hotel by the receptionist which ended in our suite with a stunning view of the lake. Everything was calm efficient and personal and the welcome flowers and champagne in the room was a lovely touch.

All staff were friendly and courteous and the spa experience was relaxing. The outdoor dining and seating gave great views and everything was peaceful and relaxing. If we had to make a word of criticism the indoor lounge areas are not very intimate and consist of long sofas that wouldn't be out of place in a waiting room or airport. The hotel is mainly for couples so small soft sofas in intimate areas would make it a more comfortable place to sit while listening to the superb Elton John style piano playing and singing.

Overall thoroughly recommended.

Impressive and sweeping architectural innovation combined with older classical palatial structure. Attentive staff. Well appointed and modern rooms. Dinning experiences most satisfying for taste, presentation and selection. Lovely gardens.
One drawback is the absence of a railing in the entry. Understable as it would interfere with the design. But necessary none the less. A modern iron work could accomodate this need.

Room Tip: Ask for a lake view.

Very disappointed in the way we were treated this year not at all like the warm welcome we received in 2011. We did not realise last year while staying here, but this year we certainly did, the sunbathing area towards the Lake seems to be infested with Mosquitos. Having been elsewhere in the area during our stay this year as we did last year, it was only here again on the day we used the pool area that we had the same problem much to our annoyance, coincidence, I think not. Can't help wondering why the bar seems empty in the evenings yet again this year, could it be that @ 15€ for a Scotch as I mentioned last year, people like to be charged a fair price, even for 5 Star Hotel would it not be better to charge a little less & have a few more clientele??? Riva town is 5 minutes away & better priced with a good atmosphere & buzz, hence we avoided the Hotel bar during our 6 day stay, the Savoy in London is better priced I know that to be a fact. However, I must say yet again that the restaurant staff were 110% as ever, the management need to be obliging in these hard times not grabbing from customers as regards the high room rate I was charged.

A beautiful hotel, great friendly staff who seem very happy to work there. We stayed in the executive junior suite which was a massive room with a small-ish balcony (enough room for the table and two chairs) which overlooked the lake - stunning. Everything about the room was brilliant. We used the spa which had a great selection of treatments, along with the outdoor and indoor pool and a variety of steam rooms/sauna etc. We didn't eat at the hotel in the evening but the breakfast and lunch had a good choice and the food was alway fresh and tasty. The hotel is just a few mins walk from the old town.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 408 which had a view of the lake.

Class and friendliness. The esplendid Hotel Lido Palace provided us, with numerous kindness, a special celebration. The hotel is in a beautiful park with breathtaking views, exquisite service and loving staff. I recommend the hotel and restaurant Il Re della Busa commanded by the extraordinary Executive Chef Giuseppe Sestito that enchanted us with a delicious, refined and inventive cuisine. Simply unforgettable.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
In a spectacular location on the northern edge of picturesque Lake Garda, Lido Palace is a stunning Belle Époque building, set within 19th-century gardens filled with fragrant cypress, cedar and magnolia trees. Recently renovated, the Liberty Style palace impresses with contemporary interior design which epitomizes chic modernity. The rooms - almost a symbiosis of light, nature and elegant interior design - are modern, wide and bright spaces taking advantage of the contrast between the minimal style of the interiors and the romantic view on Lake Garda. The 1,500sq m spa offers a collection of globetrotting treatments, including a Finnish sauna, Mediterranean bath, Indian massages and Native American stone treatments. Its guests are invited to enjoy the serenity in an elegant setting tasting savory meals by Chef Giuseppe Sestito. Tremani is the hotel's more laid-back lunchtime eatery offering healthy imaginative meals. For intimate evening meals, Il Re della Busa is decadent and distinguished, with exquisitely rendered morsels of haute cuisine in sleek designer surroundings and backlit views of the grounds. The restaurant overlooks the gardens, which are a mix of manicured lawns and forested foothills, grab a seat by the window to gaze upon them as you eat. If it's a balmy night, get a table on the balcony deck. Fine-dining chefs are usually fiercely protective of their recipes, but chef Giuseppe Sestito will happily share some of the secrets to his creations. ... more   less
