Leaving chaotic Venice to Acquaviva was a blessing. This is truly a beautiful peaceful place. Everything on this site was so peaceful. The private sunbathing area by the lake and the pool were the highlight of my trip. I did not use the spa so i can not comment on that. The staff was very nice. I arrived early and they held my bags. I was given a locker in the spa to store my things while i waited for my room to be ready. Breakfast was fantastic! Great selection. My room was great. Very roomy and comfortable.Bathroom was spacious. Balcony was very peaceful. The only negative was that my air did not seem to be working properly. I did not complain about it because i was ok with it. Over all i would highly recommend this hotel for some well deserved peace and quiet.
Just off the square near lots of restaurants & a 5 min walk to the ferry boats around the lake. There are 3 different restaurants all good especially the courtyard restaurant, there are tables on the cobbled street, it's very quaint & quirky. Our room overlooked the street which could be a little noisy but the shutters kept this to a minimum, there was a huge round bed & jacuzzi bath in the room, the only downside was the shower/ bathroom was small.
Lovely, quiet, small hotel which has good transport links to get out and about, both on the lake and by train. Room was comfortable (bed great level of firmness for us) and good size. We went for a suite, found it unusual that the other room had 2 single beds rather than a sofa bed which is what we are used to. Tap started leaking and was repaired very quickly. Good shower. Walk to town is about half hour, buses every hour for 1 Euro (bargain!), also to Sirmione which was more expensive but sometimes worked better for boat times.

Stayed here for 5 nights in July with my husband and 2 children (11 and 13) in a family room (No. 49). Staff very friendly and helpful. Hotel very clean and well cared for. Lovely gardens, especially the quiet rear garden with the lemon trees and vegetables/grapes being grown. Front garden contains the larger pool and although well landscaped is slightly noisy due to the main road, however that did not stop us from relaxing in and by the pool at any time as the road isn't that busy. Only had breakfast in the hotel but it was well presented, plentiful with a large selection of breads, fruit, meat, cheeses and pastries to choose from. Our room was at the back of the hotel - exceptionally quiet area which was great. The only slight issue was the hair drier - not very powerful but to be honest it was so hot I just let my hair dry naturally for a change. All in all we loved our stay here and would not hesitate in recommending this hotel to friends and family - in fact I already have.

Arrival spoilt by car park being 400 metres from hotel. Front desk staff were great, and most helpful. Room was dated, small but spotlessly clean. We arrived late but restaurant happy to serve us with terrific pizza.
Overall great location and very helpful staff.

Pocket Guide: Lake Garda Desenzano del Garda Hotels
Desenzano is one of the liveliest and most cosmopolitan lake resorts. Its pretty little palm-fringed harbour is lined with restaurants and cafes, and the narrow streets off the attractive arcaded piazza are filled with fashionable shops. The weekly market is very popular. Shingle beaches lie to either side of town and Gardaland, Italy’s biggest and most popular theme park, is only 20 kilometres away.
