About the location
The charming town of Desenzano lies on the southern banks of Lake Garda, gazing out towards the Alps. With three large beaches and numerous cafes along the lake’s waterfront, it’s easy to relax here. Spend some time walking the pleasant historic streets up to the town’s Castello, where you can enjoy wonderful views over Desenzano, visiting the impressive Roman villa or marvelling at the cathedral's 16th-century architecture. There are plenty of shops dotted around the town, with everything from well-loved high street shops to charming, individual boutiques.
Desenzano is a great base for explorations of northern Italy. Lake Garda’s other towns are accessible by regular ferries and the cities of Milan, Verona and Venice are easily reached by train.
The hotel is 30 minutes from Verona airport. Return private transfers included. To change your transfers or book car hire instead, simply call us once you’ve completed your booking.

We stayed for 2 nights at the splendido bay , the staff were all really friendly and helpful apart from the guy on reception on check out morning. The evening before we were informed by a note in the room that the water could not be drank from the tap from 21:00 to 06:00. We were not told that it would be brown at 09:00 when we tried to shower... the towels even had brown stains after a quick shower before we realised the state of the water !!
My husband went to reception with the towels and the guy said there was nothing he could do and laughed as he walked away!! We realise the water is not the hotel fault but would have been nice to have been warned of the brown water that late in the day!
We also had room service which was very poor. Menu limited forcing us to have a basic pasta from the children???s menu. A mixed salad which consisted of just leaves for 15???! And a sub standard pizza .. no bread, no olive oil or balsamic except for an old individual satchet. For this pleasure we were charged an additional ???20!!
The spa is beautiful, clean, and one of the best hotel spas I have been to. As we were in a quiet month it was very quiet which was perfect! The towels, robes etc all readily available and a lovely selection of complimentary teas which I was very impressed with.
The breakfast was also amazing! Fruit very fresh and replenished well. The restaurant staff are all lovely.
Overall it was a lovely stay, and would be nice to go back in the warmer months.
I will add that on departure the room service bill was not charged and we were given a gift of wine and olive oil, which I see as a fair gesture to the issues and I would like to say thank you for that.
Thank you! See you soon.
