    Not a dislike really, but there’s no pool. You can dip in the lake though!

    Fantastic location with great rooms, really great staff throughout, and a fine restaurant. Breakfast and dinner on the terrace overlooking the lake was a highlight for us.

    Prefect location with Private beach, away from the main city but within walking distance. The staff were great and helpful. Slept well. Extended our stay. Brilliant place to base for exploring lake garda and the best aperol spritz I had in Italy! My girlfriend was pregnant during the stay, so being able to walk a few steps to sunbeds on the beach and swimming on the lake was brilliant. Will stay there everytime I return to lake Garda.

    On most evenings we were unable to book a table in the restaurant before 9 pm as it was fully booked. The hotel is rather close to a busy road.

    We had an excellent meal in the restaurant and enjoyed swimming in the lake. Convenient position for walking in the hills nearby and for ferries and Maderno facilities.

    We really enjoying our staying at Villa Maria. The room was spacious, clean and just 10 metres away from the hotel's private beach. We also enjoyed the garden and the fantastic view from the terrace/restaurant. Staff was helpful, competent and nice. We highly recommend this place and we would definitely stay at Villa Maria again in future!

    not all suites have a right lake view. Some of them -lake side view. Going in the evening for dinner, you can stay without it (!!-you are living in the hotel, because restrain is less than for all suites ) , as the restaurant can be full. Attention-the dinner should be booked in advance, even if you live in this hotel. nearest restaurant -1 - 2 km of by car only

    Cozy hotel - a villa on the shores of Lake Garda. elegant interior, good restaurant, varied breakfasts, including champagne and juices. the main advantage is the swimming into the lake Garda , two steps from the number at the private beach .

Service at breakfast was also wonderful with nothing too much trouble. As we stayed with a group of friends and there were around 15 off us in total, I feel the hotel catered for all our requests.

Breakfast is very simple, no fantasy at all!

    Location on the lake was great but the nearest village Toscolano Maderno was about 20 min walk away. The restaurants there were very low budget tourist oriented. The evening meal which sometimes we had to take was also below standard for a 4 star hotel

    The breakfast was great especially the fruit which was all good and fresh. It was a great buffet breakfast with plenty of choice. Coffee however was limited to just one cup -not sure why. The Hotel is directly on the lake front

    Great location to explore lake Garda. With private beach!

    Not much. The road is close to the hotel, but it's exactly the same with other 99% of hotels near the lake. Hotel has a private sector of beach, that's great. But it's quite rocky. So we used a small public strip of beach to the left where you can go swimming barefoot.

    If you want to stay on the very shore of lake Garda, this is the place! Of course it's a little pricey, but its worth that. The location (also in the surroundings of hotel) is peaceful. We stayed in hotel for 3 nights. Room was very suitable for family (2+2).

    The menu in the dining room doesn't appear to be changed very often; if you are full board for a week the choices are limited. However they will try to oblige with specific requests. It is at the beginning of Moderno so there is approx a 10 min walk to the centre, but this didn't bother us.

    The bed was extremely comfortable. Nice view from balcony for a "standard-type" room. Staff in the dining room particularly friendly and helpful, as was all the staff actually.
