Modern, stylish hotel with a wonderful restaurant
Posted Oct 18, 2016
We stayed for eleven nights in early September 2016.
The Ziba Hotel and Spa is very nice. It was originally an 18th Century winery as can still be seen in the wide doorways and vaulted ceilings. It is a little way out of Peschiera del Garda, so be prepared for a 25-30 min walk or to wait for buses. There is a car park around the back. The pool is safe with a partially enclosed, shallow area at both ends. There is a pool bar open from 10:00 to 19:00pm and there are plenty of sun beds around the pool or in the shady garden.
The restaurant is superb for fine dining and served the best food we had all holiday. A two course meal with 50cl of wine for two cost just under 60 euros but was well worth it. The restaurant is open 19:00 - 22:00. The waiting staff are wonderful, particularly Marco, the Maitre D' who is utterly passionate about his food and wine.
The bar and restaurant are closed on Monday
The rooms are very pleasant and are cleaned daily to a high standard. There were 3 power sockets in the room plus a shaving socket, hairdryer and bidet in the bathroom. The rooms don't have balconies, they have French windows that open onto a rail which was handy for drying clothes.
The breakfast is continental though bacon and scrambled eggs are also available. There are cakes, rolls, a toasting machine, cheeses, salami, ham, fresh fruit, fruit juices and an orange juicing machine, cereals, yoghurt.
It was a nice base for walking into town or for trips eg to wonderful Sirmione.
