Although this great hotel is expensive (!) it was worthwhile to stay there. With two kids (2,4) it was a good choice to get for a suite with separate bedroom. very clean and modern room, great view (north, morning sun). Breakfast perfect, service as well. Thank you Nicole for taking care of all the kids, you did a great job!... More

This hotel has to have the friendliest service in Europe. The staff are all over you from the time you book in, to the welcome drinks to check out. The breakfast is to die for, probably the best we have had anywhere!

We enjoyed this stay immensely. The staff of Giardino was friendly and extremely helpful. The concierge was able to organise activities for every day, room made up perfectly each afternoon and everything was taken care of. The rooms were warm, the garden welcoming and area beautiful. Wonderful place !

The Giardino isa very good hotel with prefect service and very dedicated people serving you whatever you need. Nevertheless the hotel has something "theme park stile" – showing a "Ticino" for tourists... but this is not a critic as you will enjoy it...

It's an oasis just a short bike ride away from port-side Ascona. Their large fleet of bicycles were custom made for the resort. Everything about the hotel is topnotch. Great service and staff, beautiful gardens, spacious and well appointed guest rooms and large comfortable public spaces. Make this your choice of hotels in Ascona

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The name that now unites all Giardino Retreats and Resorts was born here. The hotel Giardino Ascona combines a laid-back ambience, a high-level of service and charismatic design to a place of Mediterranean savoir-vivre. Breathe, relax, stroll, chill, move, marvel or simply enjoy - this Soul Retreat provides undiluted relaxation with character. At the Giardino Ascona there are plenty of gastronomic surprises with the Aphrodite or Poolside restaurants. The culinary highlight is undisputably the Ecco restaurant which has been awarded with two Michelin stars. It stands for outstanding aroma cuisine and puristic intensity, which is restaged every day through the inspired ideas of Executive Chef Rolf Fliegauf. The dipiù Spa promises a world of vitality, beauty and equilibrium and offers ample space to find peace to strengthen body and soul. With its products and treatments dipiù proves that it stands for quality, authenticity and sustainability. ... more   less
