From the moment we arrived and were greeting by a warm handshake, to the time we sadly had to go home, we loved our stay at Parco San Marco. You can either stay in the hotel itself, or as we did in the self-catering Residenza San Marco. Staying in the Residenza San Marco means that you only have limited access to the hotel's excellent spa facilites - you can only use the outdoor pool and the lakeside beach. But if you do want to use the fun pools or the spa then you can buy a daily pass. Expensive, but worth it if you really do use all the facilities on offer. We had a 1 bedroomed apartment with a balcony overlooking Lake Lugano in the Residenza San Marco. The apartment was perfectly spacious for two adults and 2 pre-schoolers. The kitchen was basic and not really equiped for complicated cuisine but adequate for making simple pasta dishes, which was as much as we wanted to do. We could of course use the hotel restaurants. Porlezza itself is a couple of kilometers down the road and is pleasant enough but not terribly exciting. But the drive over to Mennagio on Lake Como takes on 20 min and we made several easy trips. Would certainly recommend Parco San Marco to anyone and would happily go back tomorrow!
