My husband and I have just returned from our first visit to Lake Garda and spent a week at the Lido hotel in Limone. The resort is very picturesque and the surrounding scenery of the lakes and mountains is quite spectacular. There is an excellent ferry service across the lake and the surrounding villages are equally lovely with lots of shops and little terrace cafes and bars. The Lido is a family run hotel and all of the staff were very helpful and friendly. However, I would have to say that overall our accommodation was disappointing! The rooms are very basic and sparsely furnished, although cleaned adequately with new towels and bed linen regularly.
We chose the Lido for it's location as we believed a hotel within the village would be noisy. The Lido is positioned on the lake and a 5 minute walk away from the resort centre. We thought it would be ideal to walk into the village in the evening. There is no actual bar in the Lido although you can buy drinks after your evening meal and sit at your table or in the reception area. So if you're looking for entertainment then you have to find it in Limone itself!! Most of the bars and restaurants close by 11.00pm and after talking to other visitors we discovered that it's because most of the other hotels provide entertainment in the evenings! They mostly provided free drinks with the evening meal which again was not offered at the Lido although the holiday was for the same or similar price. We were half-board and lots of choice but not always very edible!! Breakfast was adequate but again seemed to be a lot less than what was offered at other hotels. The other hotels provided breakfast for those who had an early start but we were given a tray in our room with a flask of coffee made up the night before with some pre-wrapped cakes!!
All in all, after speaking to other visitors to the resort we seemed to have "drawn a short straw". We would certainly go back to Limone as we found the area charming but we would choose a different hotel next time. Sorry but it was very disappointing!
