Spectacular hotel overlooking Lake Garda

Posted Jun 14, 2014
Pros: Everything
Cons: The Trattoria offered a lunchtime buffet. We wouild have liked similar for dinner.
Location: 500m vertically above, but 6km by road from Gargnano on west coast of Lake Garda.
My wife and I were seeking a luxurious and relaxing retreat and Lefay fulfilled all our wishes. Our spacious room, the 2 infinity pools that appear to merge into Lake Garda 500m below, the award winning spa and sauna, the gym, the restaurants and bars and the 2.5 km forest trekking path combined to give us probably our best holiday ever. We had rest, exercise, pampering, good food and spectacular views. We both felt like we were on a 2nd honeymoon. The area is of great natural beauty and with this in mind we visited the nearest town, Gargnano for an afternoon and took the ferry boat to spend a day in Salo, but could have happily spent all our time at the resort.

Amazing hotel in stunning surroundings

Posted Jun 10, 2014
Pros: The staff who were incredibly helpful, the wonderful smells, atmosphere in the SPA, the wonderful tea infusions, the rooms, the food, the pools.
Cons: Nothing!
Location: We only had a short stay so didn't leave the resort but obviously exploring Gargano and lake Garda are obvious good options.
From the minute you set foot on the site you are treated like a VIP, there is nothing the staff won't do for you and they are extremely friendly and helpful. The scenery around is incredible and the facilities provided by the hotel are exceptional. Whilst there, I had an incredible massage recommended by the SPA staff and enjoyed a Yoga session. My partner had an osteopathic massage following knee surgery and felt incredible afterwards. We spent 2 days there and it was incredibly relaxing, beginning with our welcome refreshing drink on arrival. Our room was magnificent - with a beautiful view, spacious, and attended to couple of times a day. The toiletries provided were all made of natural ingredients and smelt amazing and were topped up regularly. The hotel has two restaurants - one more informal and the other with a Michelin starred Chef. Both meals were amazing, in particular the more formal restaurant which is on a higher level with a beautiful views of the Lake and surroundings. The scenery is wonderful and there are nature walks around, running tracks and gym if you want, or you can relax in the extensive SPA. There is nothing I could fault about this hotel. It was truly incredible and my partner and I will definitely be staying again. I look forward to my next stay.

Stunning views

Posted May 3, 2014
We loved this place room, views and spa were outstanding. A few recommendations would be to drive and visit other towns as this hotel is out of the town - although the hotel provides a car until 7pm to take you into town for free. Gargnano town was very quiet and not a lot of choice for romantic meals would recommend limone

Weekend Stay

Posted Apr 1, 2014
Pros: Quality of the facilities was excellent and the staff were extremely helpful.
Cons: Nothing,
Location: Gargnano has limited facilities but you can get a bus to Salo which is lovely. Car Ferry to Torri is worth doing to explore the East side of the Lake
We couldn't have asked for more from the hotel. It's a beautiful location with outstanding facilities and incredibly helpful and attentive staff. The hotel and food both lived up to the 5 star rating and we would highly recommend it to anyone.

Stunning Hotel

Posted Oct 17, 2013 on Hotels.com
I spent 4 nights here. The hotel provides the most spectacular views of lake garda from all rooms, restaurants and pools. The staff are extremely attentive. Have been to a number of other 5 star hotels and this is without a doubt my favourite. Recommendation - if going to lake garda....stay here.

Lovely hotel but bad location

Posted Oct 2, 2013
I have just come back from a weekend stay at this hotel. The spa is great but be prepared to pay good money for all treatments. The resort is not well located if you want to leave it and go to see the lake. We had no option but to eat within the restaurents in the resort which were over priced and served average food! I would only go if you want a spa break and nothing more, and take snacks!

Dear Guest, thank you for staying at our Resort and for taking the time to write this comment. As far as the Resort's location is concerned I want to inform you that on our web page, under the section “Location” we clearly show on a map where our property is situated. Furthermore every time people ask about our location we always inform them that the resort is located on a hill above the village of Gargnano, just 6 km far from the main Lake Road, which, by the way, during the summer season and during weekends is crowded and noisy. Many guests believe that our setting is a great advantage over most of the other lake properties because it doesn’t only offer an astonishing view, but it ensures a sense of peace and exclusivity. Nevertheless we provide a free shuttle service from/to the village of Gargnano. Regarding our pricing I assure you that it is perfectly aligned with the standards of excellence we provide in our resort both in terms of products used as well as service provided. We hope to welcome you back at Lefay Resort. Best regards Alcide Leali Jr. Managing Director Lefay Resorts

The definition of exceptional

Posted Sep 8, 2013
Pros: The staff are all exceptional, during our stay not once did we need to wait for service of any kind - they are so customer centric.
Cons: Street lights on the steep climb to the hotel.
Location: Gargnano is beautiful, as is Modena (about 15 minutes away). We drove to Verona and had the most wonderful day seeing the major sites there.
Lefay has everything you would expect from a 5 star and more. The staff are superb, attentive, customer focused and faultless. The facilities are stunning, we stayed for 9 nights and couldn't try everything there was so much. The food is expensive but incredible (they designed a specific menu to cater for us -vegetarian - and changed it every evening). The local village is quaint and traditional, the steep road up to the hotel (6km) is a little scary to climb even in a daytime and not good of an evening so we felt a little restricted to eat elsewhere. I would return here though in the blink of an eye, we have stayed at innumerable hotels but Lefay did exceptional service at a consistent level - we found a bookmark in our books where previously we'd turned down the corner of our pages, I was given a Pashmina when the climate dropped during an outdoor evening meal, greeted by name by room maids and there's many more examples. The saying 'you pay for what you get' is justified here, phenomenal experience and highly recommended to all.
