A really enjoyable break in one of the most beautiful towns on Lake Garda staying at a hotel that lived up to expectations with great staff who were very welcoming. Fantastic lounging by the lake where you can swim away from the madding crowd with view of the old citadel at Sirmione.
Probably the only hotel where I've seen a really good mix between couples and families.
Excellent food, exceptionally friendly owners and staff, hence we keep returning year after year as do many of the friends from different parts of the world whom we meet there each time. Cannot praise this hotel enough.

This was my first ever holiday abroad & I couldn't have asked for a better experience. We had a late arrival (10:30pm) so we collected our keys from the nearby (5 minute walk) 'Yachting hotel Mistral' which is part of the Aqua resorts chain (During the holiday we were also allowed to use the resources at Mistral hotels including their larger pool). On arrival to our apartment there was a lift for easy access which was very useful (especially when you have packed the kitchen sink!) & the apartment was very secure with large bolts inside the door. The apartment was clean, minimalistic & cool with 2 air conditioning units. The kitchen/dining room included a small freezer, a fridge, a hob with 2 rings, a table with 4 chairs & a sofa bed. The bathroom had a toilet, a bidet, a powerful shower and a large sink. The bedroom had a very large built in wardrobe/storage space, a telly, a small safe and a huge bed. The balcony had a small table with 2 chairs and a nice view of the surrounding houses. During our stay we traveled to Venice, Verona & nearby Simone which was very easy to get to using either the bikes from Aqua resorts or Mistral hotels (when they had run out at Aqua). The staff were friendly and approachable and we would definitely stay again. The only issues that we had were that there was only one bin which room service emptied once & the curtains in the bedroom were not very dark so the sunlight tended to wake us up early. All in all, a very good stay. Highly recommended!
Staff here were so friendly and helpful. My husband locked our passports in the safe on the first day, the reception staff were there within 5 minutes to sort it out.
We needed taxi's booked - no problem. They also have the facility to book trips to Venice and Verona, ect.
Free WiFi - signal not great in rooms but perfect in bar and around the pool area.
Rooms were clean, and changed towels and bedding as often as you wanted. Leaving a card on the bed to let the maids know.
Paid extra for a lake view room and it was worth it.
Pool and spa area are lovely, you can swim to a set of stairs that take you inside to a relaxation room with beds, a sauna a shower and a toilet. The pool is thermal and relaxing.
Breakfast is fabulous: Continental and fresh coffee.
Location: Right next to Sirmione Castle, a boat port for travelling to different parts of the lake and the lovely squares filled with fabulous restaurants.
Things not so great...
Lake Access: You can see it and their is pier from the hotel garden but it is cordoned off as there are pieces missing. My husband and I still walked along it and went for a swim.
Also, they have entertainers on 3/4 times a week. Its the same two singers and they kept us awake on some nights as we were right above the bar in room 130. This was a bit disappointing but the Italian tourists seemed to enjoy it!
Overall we loved this hotel, we had a fabulous experience of Lake Garda and would defiantly return. We are very sad we had to leave!
A great hotel in a fabulous location. Staff were friendly, room was clean, lovely breakfast and brilliant location. Tricky to take the car into the old town, especially during the day. Magical to arrive at night and drive over the drawbridge. Overall, an excellent and memorable stay.
