Hotel Splendid Sole
Ranked #4 of 10 Hotels in Manerba del Garda
Reviewed September 29, 2013

Don't expect a room with a view. My room had an enclosed balcony on the 3rd floor of an annexe to the main hotel. I had to stand on tip-toe to even see the swimming pool below. Too hot to sit on the balcony during the day due to the enclosed space and quite claustrophobic. The hotel seemed to be geared up to families with children, as the swimming pool area was heaving with young kids all splashing about in the pool and screaming and shouting (not ideal if you're looking for a quiet relaxing break). The bar / ice cream parlour / cafe was very basic set with outdoor table and chairs on a tiled floor. The reception is basic with a small leather sofa seating area. The dining room works on a buffet dinner basis, with a help-yourself salad bar, followed by waiter served main and sweet course. Any drinks ordered are added to your room bill. Breakfast is again buffet-style. Not a bad selection on display. Staff seemed quite helpful, but didn't fall over themselves. No carpeting throughout the hotel, just tiled flooring. Rooms are very basic with metal framed bunk beds and double beds. There was a tiny 7" wall-mounted TV in the room, right above the door, so not even conveniently placed to view (not that I bothered). The only saving grace for my room was a great shower pressure, so at least the showers were a pleasant experience. A short walk from the little local shops / restaurants / bar (don't expect much choice). A good 20 minute downhill walk to the lake side, and yes, you've guessed it, a steep uphill walk back up to the hotel (a killer in the summer heat). If you're out all day sight-seeing it's OK, but nothing much else to do here. Do be beware of the outdoor tiled areas when wet, they can get very slippery in rain.

This was the first part of and 8 day holiday and the hotel was basic but the rooms were clean and we found the beds comfortable. There were four of us travelling together, we were lucky enough to have neighbouring rooms on the ground floor with lovely patio areas. The bar staff were exceptionally pleasant and helpful. Drinks were reasonably priced.
The breakfast was adequate but the dinners were appalling, quite inedible, poor quality food and over salted.

Room Tip: Ask for ground floor

I stayed at this hotel for a week. The rooms were cleaned every single day from top-to-bottom and left spotlessly clean. The room was very comfortable and each one has a balcony so it is easy to enjoy the stunning surronunding views. The hotel is in great proximity to the picturesque little town of Manerba (2 mins walk) where there are a choice of traditional restaurants. and 10 mins walk from the ferry which took us to other parts of the lake. Really felt i could relax here and the pool was lovely, also cleaned every morning. The indoor pool/spa downstairs was fab and great for a bit of pampering. I would not hesitate to stay here again and prices are very good for the standard offered. The staff are very friendly went out of their way to help us with any of our requests. Thank you to all at Hotel Splendid Sole. We will most definitely be seeing you again in the future.

Its rare to come across a hotel that acts as a home away from home but thats exactly what Splendid Sole offers from the minute you walk in the door. The staff are simply incredible people!!!!!! Second to none!!!!! They make it their business to go the extra mile no matter what. My husband and I couldnt say enough about how much we enjoyed our stay. Our apartment overlooked the pool, beautiful views, quiet when needed, gorgeous indoor pool, fantastic breakfast. Definite value for money, the area of manerba itself is stunning. Lovely restaurants, pier, just a fantastic buzz to the place. A trip we will never forget. Already planning another for next year. Luisa, Lenka, Andrea, Guiseppe, Catalin & Simone we miss you already! Vera and Keiran King

We stayed here for 3 nights as part of an organised, package tour. We had a room on the ground floor facing the swimming pool. The swimming pool is oblong and very large - no doubt necessary when the hotel is at full capacity and during hot weather - the siting of the pool is functional though rather unimaginative. The room and linen were fine, -- clean and entirely acceptable without being spectacular.The staff were friendly and helpful and the prices for "extras" (e.g. drinks) were reasonable. The location of the hotel is very convenient for the village of Manerba (with a few cafes and restaurants) but is well above the lake (though no lake views), so a lake-side visit will require at least a 20 minute steepish downhill walk with the ensuing, and rather more challenging return. The catering was uncomplicated ( entirely compatible with package-tour standards) but very generous. We would certainly return..

0ur daughter recently got married in Lake Garda, and we stayed at this Hotel. Spotlessly clean rooms, great atmosphere and the pool area was brill. All the wedding guests stayed here also and found it to be great value for money and were very happy with the service overall. The most important part for us, was the excellent staff in this Hotel. They were simply superb, and nothing was too much trouble. Special thanks to Luisa, Lenka, Andrea, Antonio, Guiseppe, Catalin, and Simone, who made everything so easy for us. Thinking already of another trip as soon as we can. Our daughter and her new husband were really happy with this Hotel and have said they too want to pay a return visit.

To start with I loved this area.

With regard to the hotel, found the accomodation basic , a little on the cold side( not temperature) and the beds the weakest point in my view rather uncomfortable and short. Also the cost of wifi is simply ridiculous!!!

On the plus side the pool area is lovely, the staff fantastic, the bar pleasant, the evenings quiet and relaxed and the local area fantastic. Breakfast was fine the food good but as always in Italy take your coffee in the bar in these places. So much better.

Porto dusano is a real hidden gem. We strolled down, swan, ate, and drank in fading sunset over the lake. Swimming in the lake was wonderful in early June, water temps pleasant and all around the views majestic.

In addition the local village had three restaurants which while not mind blowing offer really decent food that is inexpensive.

Off the tourist trail and most pleasant overall.
