We stayed at the Hotel Virgilio for a long weekend in May. It was the first time that we decided to choose half pension at a hotel, and it was worth it here. My wife is Italian, and she was a bit skeptical about what the food would be like - mass-produced spaghetti and meatballs, etc. Instead, the food was excellent. All home-cooked, a four course dinner every night, with enough choices to satisfy most guests. There was an appetizer every evening, then a pasta dish (with a choice from 3 or 4 dishes), then a "secondo" (meat or fish, again several choices), and then dessert (also choices). My wife was extremely impressed with the quality of the food - it was like eating at home for her. The prices for the beverages were very reasonable. We also were happy with the breakfast choices - something for everyone, including scrambled eggs! The room was comfortable - nothing fancy, but very clean and a nice place for a nap or relaxing. All rooms have balconies with views of the mountains. There is a nice pool and outside dining area surrounded by palm and olive trees and flowers. The staff was extremely attentive and very friendly. The neighborhood is quiet (residential), unlike many of the more highly priced hotels in Riva, which sit along the main road and have constant traffic going by. We slept with our balcony door open evey night without any noise problems. The walking distance to the center of town and the lake is about 15 minutes. We definitely enjoyed our stay and will repeat at soon as we can.
There is a supermarket across from the hotel which is great for getting drinks and snacks.
Definitely worth it!
