Reviewed May 31, 2010

Very basic hotel with no seperate lounge area for residents, to the point that on the night of the "gala" evening, it was stopped at 10;00pm because they needed to set up the tables for breakfast, Breakfast was basic continental style,while dinner had to be ordered the previous evening, only one serving time, with few staff, (who were very friendly & helpful) which lead to slow service,so if your partner had ordered something different from you either your's or their meal would be cold by the time the other meal arrived, This said the hotel is in an ideal location and is spotlessly clean

Great location and nice hotel. Service down on last year and food would be best described as poor (sloopy mashed potatoes and meat first night and no veg.) Morning coffee is instant variety! Head waiter and staff much better last year. Overall not to bad as plenty of reasonably food options in town including 3 supermarkets..

Hotel Portici is located in a fantastic place in Riva - close to the ferry port, bars and restaurants and being in a pedestrian square no traffic noise. Lots of entertainment reasonably priced and even free concerts in the museum.

We had an apartment rather than a hotel room which was basic, but very spacious and had a full size fridge which proved very useful.

Breakfast was good with alot of choice. We stayed half board as that was the only option available on the last minute deal - food was very poor. Very little choice on menu, restricted times to eat ( you choose your food 24 hours before and it is obviously cooked for 7pm whether you are there or not, as was often cold and dried out), powdered soup (I know this because I could see lumps of powder in it), one evening the starter arrived in the middle of main course with no apology, small portion sizes, no vegetables in the week atall, salad bar poorly stocked.

We asked to swap our half board for a packed lunch, but were told by the rep this was not 'normal'. On a day trip to Venice when we would have missed the evening meal due to our late arrival back we should have got a packed lunch and didn't get so much as a bottle of water meaning lunch had to be bought in Venice.

Enjoyed Lake Garda, but not this hotel.

just back from riva ,stayed in portici hotel, guide who left us to hotel very helpful, on arriving rooms very plain but clean. breakfast filling more than enough to set you up for the day. evening meals now thats another story, overcooked salmon no taste , loads of salad, but after two nights gets boring, no vegetables all week , but on last nite dinner good, pity they didnt serve this type of meal during week. had to go out one of nites to a resturant along promenade, meal top notch, now the food at front of hotel was lovely to look at it ,but we were in back of resturant eating school dinners, Maria pia, our guide was wonderful we left italy with so much knowledge of their country, big big hoorey for maria.

I spent a week in Riva Del Garda.on Lake Garda, organised by the Travel Department. There were three coach tours in the price, around the lake, Verona, and Venice. All in all the holiday was good value for money. The trips were well organised. The location of the hotel was excellent. The hotel cleanliness was also v. goood. The one major criticism of this package was the food. There was very limited choice i.e choice fo two starters/main meal. The food order had to be placed the day before. The was also no flexibility with meals times, food was served at 19:30 sharp and the group had to be seated at this time. The was also compulsory allocation of seating at the tables, each couple was placed with another couple (unknown to them) and they eat together every night. Not the most romantic setting! The food itself was edible but limited.

I spent a week in Riva Del Garda.on Lake Garda, organised by the Travel Department. There were three coach tours in the price, around the lake, Verona, and Venice. Our tour guide was a man called Martin, who did everything he could for all our travelling companions. He was very pleasant, cooperative, knowledgeable, and helpful in every way, altogether a real nice guy. We stayed at the Hotel Portici,a very good place to stay. The staff were extremely pleasant and courteous, the hotel itself was very clean and comfortable. My only criticism of it would be that the food, whilst being fairly good the menu was somewhat limited and for a few extra pounds on the holiday price it would have come up to the same standard as everything else in the hotel. An example would be, one night we got pork accompanied with beautiful curried carrots, but no potatoes. Another night we got beautiful potatoes but no vegetables. At a total price of Under £500.00, It was good value.

One point before I go, beware the Hotel Du Lac in Gardone,because our bus was on the homeward leg of a trip when we called at this area for a stretch of the legs and maybe a visit to the toilets as well as a drink of something. On entering the restaurant area and after consuming some food and drink some of our party decided to visit the restrooms only to be redirected in a not so nice way to another restroom, but the person in charge of these did not want us in there either and this developed into a bit of a shouting, match before our party could use the original ones,and this after buying food and drink.
