Borgo del Garda Resort – Manerba del Garda (Brescia)

Also known as Manerba del Garda Resort or Amethyst Hotel, this hotel changed its name a few times in the last couple of years. Why isn’t clear to us, but there must be a reason …

The hotel is on a very remote location (nearby towns only reachable by car or taxi). Lake Garda is nearby but there’s no access to it from the hotel (nor a view at the lake!). Our room (21) was quite large and looked very tidy. Unfortunately the hotel suffered from a lot of technical issues (a/c unit not working for example) and a staff not willing to do a lot about it … Outside there is a nice and large communal pool. Friendly bar personnel and nice breakfast. Not sure we’d recommend this hotel though, but for a few nights it MIGHT be sufficient. We have stayed here for a couple of nights during our 2011 trip to Italy.
