We stayed here for two weeks in late July / early August 2013 and had a very positive experience. The location is very good, just a 5 minute walk from the beach, a 5 minute drive to downtown Desenzano, and a 15-20 minute drive to beautiful Sirmione. Here you don't have all the services of a hotel (e.g. the front desk is not open 24 hours, no telephone in room, no restaurant) but in exchange you have a kitchen in the apartment, simply but adequately equipped, with a supermarket next door, so you don't have to eat out at every meal. If you do want to eat out there are good options close by. You also get some services most hotels don't offer, such as the use of bicycles and baby strollers without charge. Omar, the owner, was always extremely helpful in solving problems and providing useful information. At the beach, guests of the hotel do not pay for an umbrella and chairs. My one complaint: the music emanating from the bar at the beach (which is not, I believe, owned by the hotel but has a relationship with it) was much too loud. (By the way, who wants music at the beach at all, when you have the sound of the waves to listen to?) To avoid this problem, we found some shady spots in the public part of the beach down along the boardwalk, out of range of the music. Overall, we were very satisfied with our stay.
