“Wonderful start to our honeymoon”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

As it was our honeymoon we decided to book a Junior Suite and we weren't disappointed. The room was on the corner of the 2nd floor nearest to the Lake and so we had a great view of the Lake and the Bastille. The room was spacious and decor was contemporary...I think someone has commented about the concrete floor and I would tend to agree I think a wooden floor would have worked better.

The bathroom was "open plan" i.e. no door....was well equipped with a separate shower and bath. Toiletries were high quality and well stocked with both slippers and flip flops available for use. There was plenty of wardrobe space and the TV had all UK channels.

The spa is awesome, in fact one of the best I have ever experienced....the steam area was my favourite with the salt room for further relaxation being a fabulous way to wind down after a day out exploring.

The only real criticism is that the breakfast wasn't five star....and as such would recommend the hotel look to improve on this front by increasing variety as well as looking at more healthier options being available.

The staff were extremely polite and attentive. I happened to mention it was our honeymoon to which the receptionist looked almost hurt we hadn't mentioned previously...the following evening we found a lovely bottle of olive oil as a small token which was a lovely touch.

I would like to think I will return to such a great hotel with wonderful hospitality to celebrate another special occasion.

Room Tip: A junior suite on the corner of the lake was fabulous....

Good evening Dear mistyhere and thank you for having chosen the Lido Palace for such important occasion.
We are very attentive to each comment that our Guests produce. This is the reason why in february we have provided to place the door in eight bathrooms where these were missing. The privacy is now guaranteed. Also in the breakfast room some products mainly related to vegetarian aspect have been added. As far as the CXI Spa is concerned, it is something that makes the difference in terms of hospitality and rest. To provide more variety in terms of treatments, we have created the "7 ceremonies" path that are an homage to nature, time and silence, used from Japan to China to the South Seas and are designed to restore your balance of energy through personalized advice to choose the itinerary that best suits your needs.
I look forward to welcome back in order to let you experience all these newness.
Best regards

We took a super long weekend break (5 nights) here and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The location is perfect by the lake and a very short stroll into the town centre. The rooms were quiet and peaceful. The bed was lovely and comfortable (if firm - typical in Italy). The service from front desk, waiters, bar staff was all excellent. Friendly yet classy. The food in the restaurant was lovely in the evening whilst the breakfast spread was wide. Overall this was a lovely relaxing break at an exclusive feeling hotel. The only slight design point I was unsure of was the hard floors in the bedroom, but otherwise everything was fabulous.

Good evening Mr Stuart W and thank you for having chosen the Lido Palace in Riva del Garda for your long week end.
We are happy you have enjoyed our services and especially the food of our Re della Busa Restaurant. We are at present developing the new menù mainly because of the season nature product and the Easter festivity (for example asparagus and lamb). With our Executive Chef we are very attentive to propose the best of the period. As far as the hard floors of the bedroom is concerned I may agree with you. The level of appreciation of the parquet floor all around the bed and resin floor in the remain space of the room may be very subjective. In fact the Architect has created a sort of a wow effect once the Custmer enter in our Lido Palace without spoiling the richness of the historical heritage.
I look forward to welcoming you again at the Lido Palace

Good afternoon Dear Lennie-du-soleil and thank you for the time spent to describe our destination.
Let me take this opportunity also to point out that this area has been nominated, last december, "the best place to live" in Italy in terms of life quality.
The architect made the rest, combining in a great way the historical heritage of the assett with a modern concept and design.
I really look forward to welcoming you again at the Lido Palace in riva del Garda

First of all, the location is fantastic. Second the style, the consequent new design together with the architecture of an old palace. It is more or less a matter of taste. The atmosphere at the entrance and at the reception is maybe to cold. The same for the rooms with the concrete floor. The wellness area is overwhelming. The staff and management is very friendly and helpfull. Parking is free and easy. Breakfast buffet is of good quality. The beds have fine linens and the selection of electric buttons for the light and clima are easy to use. We stayed in room nr. 311. I think, I could count seven windows on different sides. Room service in the evening at half past nine was too late. The view to the congress center is not the best. With two elevators and a nice staircase, you never have to wait in the corridor. Overall, the hotel is well managed and the prices are fair. We will be back.

Good afternoon dear Hotbath and thank for the time spent to illustrate of our location.
The last review (december 2013) has nomitaed Riva del Garda "the best place to live" in Italy. This make all of us very proud of the product and the destination.
I totally agree with you, although it is very difficult to combine the historical heritage of the building together with the new concept and design, the architect has been able to produce the wow effect.
I am very grateful for reporting the greatness of our CXI SPA, it represents a real and tangible value added in terms of facility. All of our Customer loves to relax in this full equipped area (Warm bath, Steam bath, Mediterranean bath, Finnish sauna, Salt room, relaxation room, indoor and outdoor pool, Whirlpool, 5 emotional showers and ice fall) and be delighted by the treatments we propose.
Having said that, I will not miss the opportunity to pay attention on the time to deliver in the room what the Guest has ordered.
I thank you you once again for having been with us and I look forward to welcoming you again at the Lido Palace.

Service in the hotel and restaurants is wonderful, the staff - very professional , all the facilities and location - the best! And of course, the magic of Riva del Garda...

Thank you very much Mrs EvnevichN for the time spent to let us have your feedback. It is has been a pleasure for us to have you at the Lido Palace once again and the most important thing is to realize that we have been able to deliver our services as you expected. That means that the food quality of Re della Busa restaurant and staff attitude has been kept at a very high level.

This is just a fabulous hotel. The location is superb. The hotel design is a wonderful conversion of an old villa into a really modern hotel - very stylish - from the restaurant to the rooms. We had two interconnecting rooms as we were travelling with two young children and it was perfect. The children were welcomed everywhere from the restaurant to the spa. The best point about all however was the service. Veremente perfetto. We will go back and back to this great place.

Good morning LGBower,
it is very pleasing to read your feed-back. It means that all our efforts have been compliant with our Guest expectations in general and with yours particularly.
In addition to the design aspect and to the room facilities that you have reported, please let me take this opportunity to underline the resounding success achieved by the CXI (hundredeleven) SPA with its regenerating treatments and the restaurant Re della Busa by now leader in the area in terms of food quality.
Thank you once again for your time and looking forward to welcoming you again at the Lido Palace, I remain with best regards

Well after a disappointing visit last year, I'm more than pleased to say both with the old staff that were here back then & an influx of new staff, the magic is once again back for my stay here. The restaurant/breakfast staff could not be more attentive & the food is 5* plus.

Room Tip: Top Floor Penthouse Luxury Room 403 was good for A&MG's stay.

Dear Mr Agpower,

it is very gratifying to hear that the effort spent in terms of behavior and competencies, at the end, have generated an attentive and positive feedback from our Customer. Your comment represents additional "fuel" to make even better....and we will!
Let me take this opportunity also to thank you for having underlined the food quality and the service of our Re della Busa restaurant. By now Re della Busa is, without doubt, the reference point for the culinary art in the area.
Looking forward to welcoming you again at the Lido Palace

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
