I've visited Limone twice before staying at the Panorama's sister hotels, Le Palme and Splendid Palace, so when I had the chance of a 3 night stay at the Panorama I decided to give it a go. By choice I suppose I wouldn't really want a hotel so far out from the resort but as it was only 3 nights and I just wanted to lounge by the pool all day I decided it would be fine.
On arrival at the hotel check-in was very quick, all the information is in your room so it was basically just a case of getting the room key. I was surprised, however, at how busy the pool area was and the amount of children around which I have to say was the only disappointing thing about the holiday. This is my 7th trip to Lake Garda, always before or after the school holidays, and there have never been many children, if any, in the hotels. They're obviously all at the Panorama! As you can guess I don't really do children and unfortunately these ones were very vocal. Nonetheless the weather was glorious for the 3 days and I spent all my days by the pool, which is lovely and never got that busy that you couldn't have a good swim if you wanted.
I had a single room on the 5th (lowest) floor which was comfortable enough with a small bathroom. I didn't have any problems with noise through the walls or ants in the room as other guests have described.
Having previously been to a Golden hotel in Spain where the choice of food is exceptional, I felt there wasn't a lot of choice here at the Panorama, but what there was was quite nice. I liked the fact that they had several different pastas for you to try. The desserts were very nice too!! And of course the free drinks with evening meal is a very good saving and nice Rose wine :-)
The Manager of the hotel I recognised as he had previously worked at the Splendid Palace when I was there 4 years ago; nice to see a "hands on" Manager for a change who is very accommodating, as were all the staff. I found the hotel had a very laid back, helpful and friendly attitude towards everything.
The hotel offer the use of a laptop in reception for 50 cents for half an hour which is exceptional value for money. In Spain the going rate is 1 euro for 5 minutes!!
Of course the views from the hotel are fantastic and you could never get sick of them. For me this was a lovely relaxing break and certainly 3 nights wasn't long enough. I would like to think that at some point I will return for longer!
