“Relaxing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2012

Visited Hotel Lefay in mid May 2012. On arrival at Verona we were met by our private transfer for the 90 minute drive around lake Garda, to the hotel. The reception staff all spoke good english and we were soon made at home in a junior suite.

The rooms are well appointed, all with good views of the lake, a private grassed terrace and sun-loungers.

The staff were very effecient and courteous and the hotel facilities are excellent. Two resaurants both served good food, all well presented. There are 3 pools, a 25m outdoor pool, an indoor pool which is integrated to the second outdoor pool (heated to 35 degrees), plus a large jaquzzi.

Included in the half-board accomodation is the use of the main Spa area. This has 3 differing steam rooms and a Finnish sauna, plus the usual relaxing quite areas.

The hotel provide an on demand shuttle bus service, between 10am and 6pm, which transport you to and from the local town of Gargnano. Here you may depart by boat to various other locations on the lake.

If you wish to see other areas not seviced by the ferry services, then you would be advised to hire a car for a few days, as any taxi fare may seem excessive. The hotel is 6km from Gargnano, all up a very step hill. But, if its just a few trips out and relaxing by the pool or spa, then this hotel is prefect.

I took my wife to Lefay Resort for her 50th birthday. It was probably one of the most memorable long weekend stays we have had (and we have been to some very nice places). Everything was excellent from start to finish (reception, all staff, the room, the restaurants and the view - wow...!!!).
I have seen reviews criticising the location but the drive up the 6km from town is easy and well worth it for the location when you get there. Apart from day trips round the lake area we decided that we did not need to or even want to go out to eat in the evening - why would we with La Limonaia and La Vigna a walk from our room with their excellent and varied menus? There was also a gift in our room for my wife on her birthay and a cake with dinner. The only way they could have known about her birthday was the display of cards in our room so the domestic staff must have fed that back - what attention to detail. Congratulations to Alcide Leali and all your staff.

Room Tip: You do not need to - all rooms have a wonderful Lake view.

We had the pleasure of spending 2 nights at the a lefay Resort. We drove from Milan straight to the resort. Drive was an easy 1 1/4 hour drive but the best was the anticipation when driving to the top of the mountain ( 6km) all the way up. From the time we finally arrived, the property didn't disappoint. From the friendly yet professional reception staff right through to the chefs In the hotel and the beautiful health spa, the whole stay was just perfect. I actually tried to find areas of fault as one can do no matter where the stay is, but as hard as I tried, I couldn't come up with anything. The rooms had in floor heating, the technology in the room was state of he art. The all suite resort came with comfortable spacious rooms and the views from the room were spectacular. In fact, views of lake Garda were in front view no matter where in the hotel you stood. in summary, i would suggest anyone who is looking for a modern, well designed and well thought through resort/Heath spa would find this resort hard to beat especially in Europe where a luxurious new and modern design with young, passionate staff a rarity.

Room Tip: All rooms have lake views. Bottom floor allows you to walk out from your room onto the grass with un...

We visited Lefay for our honeymoon and i have to say it was totally worth our 8 hour rail trip, after feeling slightly tired from such a long journey we were spoilt beyond belief after arriving at this hotel, i simply did not want to leave. the hotel is worth each and every 5 stars it has (i really wish i could give more), the rooms were spacious and immaculate. There are numerous pools to choose from and the spa has excellent facilities that will make you so relaxed you will savour every moment spent here. The staff do an amazing job and should be congratulated they are very attentive and polite. I cannot put into words how much i enjoyed this stay i just want to go back again and again. Also anyone thinking of choosing this spa and hotel you must try out some of their treatments we had the' la luna nel lago' and had the exclusive use of the salt lake pool this has got to be one of the best treatments i have ever had.

We chose the Lefay resort for the second year in a row, and are already planning our return! Simply beautiful location overlooking Lake Garda, with breathtaking views from every part of the hotel. Rooms are spacious, very comfortable, and quiet. Everything is finished to the highest standard.The food is excellent with well-designed healthy and delicious menus. Spa facilities and treatments are very good. Only downside was that internet connectivity was not very good.

Perfect setting for a healthful, relaxing, and romantic break.

This is a great place to book for getting away from it all. It is about 6km up a hill from Gargnano, which itself is on the shore of Lake Garda.

All the rooms have a view of the lake which is stunning.

The SPa facilities are very good. 4 Saunas, 3 pools, a very well equipped gym and a huge number of different beauty and massage treatments available. Handy hint for the treatments is to look on the tree outside the Spa reception which has last minute offers (usually 20 Euros off) which are worth keeping an eye on - paticularly given how expensive the treatments were to start with.

Ate in the Bistro - excellent food - though I can imagine you would get bored with being there all the time.

We had dinner in the town - took the last free shuttle down at 19:00 and then paid 25 Euros for a taxi back up the hill (Not 70 as someone recently claimed).

All in all highly recommended.

Only slight down-side wass the surprising number of young children and babies which we weren't really expecting in a place like this.

Room Tip: All rooms seem good - only choice is whether you want a balcony or access to the lawn on the ground...

Hard to believe - but true. A five-star resort where romantic couples and families happily co-exist. Maybe it's the magical location on top of a hill overlooking majestic Lake Garda, maybe it's due to the warm and unpretentious service by the ever-friendly resort staff or maybe it's the top-notch quality of all the installations. Whatever it is, no one seems to want to leave the place for long. We were there only for 3 days, but we can't wait to be back. Thank you for creating such a memorable experience for our family!
