Let me first say that I had my wedding reception at this hotel. The whole thing went really well and was relatively well-priced - and we're still together! The rooms are plush, the hotel is immaculate and it's right on an inland lake. Some well-travelled family members rated the hotel right up there with the best they'd stayed with -...

We ended up here for four nights and was a little worried because it was not in Lugano, but we had a car. However, upon exploring the area, we actually preferred the small town of Marcote to Lugano and it was more relaxed and had incredible views. The hotel itself was very nice and it was also quite and relaxing....

We spent one weekend here. First thing we really liked is that they could install a baby bed in the room, so that our son didnt need to sleep with us in same bed. Usually the baby beds hotels provide have low floor. The room , dinner and breakfast were perfect. The only thing we couldn't enjoy much was the...

I stayed here for two nights with my mother. I absolutely loved the location and view. My mother and I stayed in two separate deluxe rooms with lake view. Beautiful! View was beautiful. I have stayed in many 5 * resorts and thought this hotel was somewhat lacking. The decor was very, very dated. I was very frustrated with construction...

This is a fabulous place and fully lived up to our expectations. Superb location though there is a road between the hotel and the lake, but thanks to air-conditioning in all the rooms you can sleep with the balcony doors closed and there is a beautifully decorated tunnel to the pool area, the restaurant "Lago" and the lake. Staff are...

The Swiss Diamond Hotel has a beautiful location on Lake Lugano. The rooms are sumptuous and the hotel is beautifully decorated. There are well maintained swimming pools and spa. Swimming in the lake is also enjoyable as it is crystal clear and easily accessed from hotel garden. A splendid breakfast is laid out every morning in the beautiful Artist's restaurant...
