      The floor we were on had recently been refurnished and was excellent. The outside look a little tired in some places. Breakfast choice was very good.

      Honeymoon trip

      This hotel is lovely. Our room was amazing and the biggest in the hotel I was told. We stayed in the Juniour suite as it was our honeymoon and we could watch the sunset from our bed or the balcony. A huge balcony that overlooks the pool on one side and the lake on the other. The addition of the jetted bath in the room is an absolute bonus and a nice way to relax at the end of the day. The poolside bar offers a small menu but the food is good. The pool is quite cold but the heated indoor pool/sauna and jacuzzi more than makes up for it. We hired bikes for the day from the hotel 6 euros for 6 hours is such a good deal. We cycled to the peninsula and had a walk up to the Jamaica Beach which was very picturesque. The staff in the hotel were all lovely and very friendly. I couldn't recommend this hotel enough.

      A very enjoyable stay

      The hotel was clean and comfortable, though the decor could do with being updated. Having said that, the bathroom has recently been upgraded. The food (breakfast) was good and a good variety was provided. The pools are excellent, particularly the indoor spa with its mood lighting and music. Overall, a very enjoyable stay.

      A good base for exploring the lake

      The Hotel Oliveto is just outside the main town of Descenzano, so be prepared for around a 10-15 minute walk each way. We arrived at around 2pm and our rooms weren't ready, as check in is 3pm. This was fine so we went and got a drink at the bar and waited. Once our rooms were ready, we went up to realise that one of the rooms smelled very strongly of stale cigarette smoke. After we raised this with reception, we were moved to another room which smelled fine. The rooms are fine, basic and a little dated. We found sleep a problem on the first evening as it was windy and the metal shutters covering the patio doors rattled all night which was irritating. However, the wind died down and we didn't have such a problem for the remaining 2 nights. The shower in our room was a little broken - there was a hole in the pipe, meaning a lot of the water was pouring out of it, and not the shower head. We reported it and reception said someone would be up to fix it - it didn't get fixed before we checked out, but as we were only there 3 nights, it wasn't a huge problem. The pool area in the hotel is lovely. Drinks are reasonably priced and you can't beat the breakfast spread. If you are just wanting a solid base for exploring Lake Garda, this is a great option.

      Nice enough hotel with excellent friendly staff

      It is a nice hotel and the staff make it a more pleasant experience than it otherwise would be To make improvements I would suggest the rooms need updating, more umbrellas for shade around the pool are required and the standards of room cleaning needs to improve.

      Nice hotel with lake view

      The Oliveto is a nice hotel near the port of Desenzano del Garda. We had a large family room with lake view and balcony and had thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. The hotel is only a very short walk to the lido and the restaurants and bars in the town centre. We also enjoyed the facilities in the hotel including the indoor and outdoor swimming pools. A highly recommended hotel for families.
