On arrival at Casta Diva, we were told that we 'fortunate' to be upgraded to suites. having very specifically booked - at additional cost - rooms with views we felt a little cheated however, as the large picture windows we were expecting didn't materialise and our additional space did not quite make up for this.
But, if the sun is shining there can be few better spots on Lake Como. The floating pool is indeed amazing (although did not transform into a fountain during our stay).
The staff were very polite, helpful and professional and it took only one request to ensure that our daughter was served gluten-free bread and cookies at every meal.
A highlight of our stay was the cooking demonstration by Chef Allessio (no participation other than the eating and drinking!), who also accommodated our daughter's vegetarian/gluten-free requirements.
The hotel organised-boat trip was pleasant, but the 'guide' was not able to converse in English (which is fine if you are expecting a pilot rather than a guide).
The spa treatment was a little disappointing. We also found it a little strange that a rather loud wedding ceremony was arranged directly outside our villa in the middle of one afternoon (without any warning).
Overall, however, we had a very enjoyable stay.
