Beautiful hotel with stunning views

Posted Oct 31, 2016
Location: Lake Garda in general! Limone, Trento, Salo, Sirmione and Molveno stood out, Gargnano is small but very nice, Torbole & Torri del Benaco also good.
We stayed here for a week for our honeymoon and could not have chosen better. The views of the lake and surrounding hills are incredible. The grounds are beautiful and it is well worth going for a walk around the trail (there are some steep steps). The hotel itself is very well-appointed. We had a junior suite and it was a lovely size. The pools are superb and surprisingly quiet (in October). Didn't use the spa. The staff were all very friendly, helpful, and good English speakers. Others have mentioned the drive. The last 10 minutes are up a steep, fairly narrow road with a number of hairpins. My wife and I both drove, including in the dark and once in thick fog (<50m visibility) and we agreed it was scarier for the passenger! An automatic will make your life a lot easier. There is a free and excellent shuttle to Gargnano but it only runs during the day / early evening. Mineral water provided in the room is free. The breakfasts are superb. The other meals are also good, but overpriced IMHO. A buffet lunch for 2 with 1 bottle of mineral water was €75. There are two restaurants, one formal and one informal. The formal one tries to be fine dining, and is very nice, but we had a much better meal in Gargnano itself for less € (Trattoria San Martino Tre Oche). The informal place is less good and only a few € cheaper. My penne carbonara wasn't great, and the live band in the lounge bar next door clashed with the recorded music in the restaurant.

Dear Guest, thank you very much for staying at Lefay Resort & SPA Lago di Garda. We are very delighted to learn that you totally appreciated your stay in our Resort, situated inside an 11 hectares natural park in the heart of the spectacular and renowned “Riviera dei Limoni”. In particular, thank you for highlighting the beauty of Lake Garda, whose splendid landscapes and air perfumed with the sweet fragrance of lemons have inspired beautiful verses from the great poets. Here wellness is everywhere: in the sunlight that streams through the large windows, in the wonderful gardens, in the water of the swimming pools, in the Suites which feature the most precious local materials and in the magical atmosphere that envelops everything. As far as your comment about the Resort's location is concerned, we want to clarify that the property is located on a hill above the village of Gargnano just 6 km far from the main Lake Road, which during the summer season is crowded and noisy. Many Guests believe that our location has a great advantage over most of the other lake properties because it has an amazing view over the lake as well as offering a sense of peace and exclusivity. We do provide a free shuttle service for our Guests to and from Gargnano. Last, we are sorry to read that our culinary offer did not fulfil your expectations, especially given the great effort we take to offer our Guests the best local products, according to the principles of our Lefay Vital Gourmet sustainable cuisine. I will share you comment with our Executive Manager in order to improve our service. Let me please assure you though, that our prices are coherent with those applied by other European properties of our same leve. We look forward to welcoming you again in the future. Alcide Leali Jr. Managing Director Lefay Resorts

Lovely hotel with stunning views

Posted Sep 7, 2016
The hotel overlooks Lake Garda and has stunning views, we enjoyed our stay and would recommend Our only criticism was the cost of food and drinks, we felt there was no need to charge these prices (9euros for a cup of tea!!)

Beautiful setting, lovely hotel and facilities.

Posted Sep 6, 2016
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay, the only negative for us was the cost of food and drink. €9 for a cup of tea? Because we hired a car we were able to drive down to the lake front and eat in local restaurants. The spa treatments were lovely and a beautiful tranquil setting made for a relaxing break away.

Best experience of my life!

Posted Aug 1, 2016
Pros: The staff were incredibly friendly, everything was in great condition, the decor and room were beautiful and the views are amazing!
Cons: Nothing - it was perfect!
My husband and I went here on our honeymoon and could not recommend it enough. If you are looking for a relaxing getaway where you can just enjoy a gorgeous view, be waited on 24/7 and leave feeling refreshed you couldn't pick a better place. We were personally greeted when we arrived and given a complimentary arrival drink which we enjoyed on their balcony overlooking their beautiful pools and Lake Garda. Our room was so much more spacious than expected, we had our own private outdoor space and we were given a personal tour of the whole resort - with further private tours available upon request of the spas and fitness areas when requested. The food from the 2 restaurants, pool bar and room service were all amazing and we didn't even end up eating anywhere else during our stay. The spa was great, with so many options to choose from. The staff were friendly and professional and helped us select the best /most appropriate services for ourselves. They even have options for couples if you want to do something with your partner. There are free fitness and relaxation classes happening daily as well as a gym open 24/7 - which my husband took full advantage of. The pools and saunas are all different in temperature, location and experience so you can be sure to find something you will like. We arrived tried from a wedding and left fully rejuvenated after our weeks stay. Highly recommend for anyone looking for a getaway you don't have to leave to enjoy yourself.

Awesome stay in lake Garda

Posted Jul 17, 2016
We stayed in Lefay for 3 days in July 2016 and had an awesome experience. The room was very clean, lots of room for luggage (almost a walk-in closet), soundproofed, comfortable bed, lots of extras like flip flops. The pool and sauna area was above my expectations. I have not seen pools that were better maintained or cleaner. Lots of choice of saunas and relaxation areas. This is not your regular hotel spa. 5 or so saunas at different humidity and temperature, relaxation area with water beds and so on. I regret not staying here longer so that I can enjoy it more. Very relaxing! The service was excellent as well. we called in to let the know that we will be checking in late, probably past 11pm. I got a call around 10pm and they asked me if we will be hungry when we arrive. Delicious food in the 2 restaurants. The best tasting veggie sandwich that I have ever had! They make their own olive oil. The view was magnificent. My only complaint will be that the room did not have blackout curtains and I woke up from the light (there are dark curtains but not blackout). I hope that I get a chance to stay at Lefay again.

Fantastic hotel, wonderful location with beautiful

Posted Jun 24, 2016 on Hotels
Fantastic hotel, wonderful location with beautiful views. However it is a long way out of town and you really need to have a car. My only complaint is that the ladies get a menu without a price! I thought these went out in the 1970s and is an insult to working women!

We are very delighted to learn that you totally appreciated your stay in our Resort, conceived according to the innovative Lefay concept of overall wellness, which embraces the entire holiday experience. Regarding your comment about our menus, please let me assure you that the choice to offer the ladies a menu without prices comes from a traditional Italian gallantry which we suggest to be taken as a courteousness gesture, especially because Italian character is one of the main feature of our concept. Last, while I understand the road to our Resort may seem boring, we truly believe that the wonderful views and the magical atmosphere enveloping everything totally worth it.
