Good enough breakfast, reasonable pricing and accommodating staff to large family with small children = thanks again Martina! VG is a 200 M walk close to the Patty ski school whom did an excellent job teaching our small children (5 & 3) to ski and have some fun while doing so.

Lovely and convenient accomodation. We visited Donovaly in Jan, enjoyed a lot both slopes and villa, staying there 1-week. My emailing with reception was smooth, we found the place once arrived to Donovaly. Breakfast is rather simple, but good enough for an energy boost. Kids went to nearby Patti Ski school, which was OK. Recommended and we would love to come back.

Very good value for money. Very clean, lovely and warm (underfloor heating in the bathroom). The staff were always friendly and happy, and very helpful. It's close to a ski school (patty ski) and a nice restaurant (kamzik). It's very family friendly so it can be a little bit loud with kids running around but just during the day so it wasn't a problem.

Nice aparments for great price. Quiet streets in the middle of nature. Lovely helpfull staff. One thing that wasn't clear for us ( from booking.com) that they charges extra for the wellness also if you bring your pet with you that is an extra fee as well(but we got a bigger room because we came with our dog). But still a great deal !!!! Loved it!

Our family spent there a week. We were satisfied with accommodation in two rooms apartment. Apartment was clean with kitchen that was well maintained. We had breakfast and dinner in Gardenia that were very good. Some days happened that we were alone for dinner but they prepare and serve it just for us. Food was tasteful ,homemade style. Gardenia is just 5 minutes walking from Patty SKI school where you can rent a ski and get a ski course for your children. On departure children received a small gift that was very kind. Gardenia has also nice wellnes ,but we didn't have a chance to test it. I would definitely recommend Gardenia

we were in villa gardenia in the end of february as a family of a couple and 2 years old daughter. the room was clean, well equipped, big and a balcony that you would look at the surrounding and relax. the hotel is nearby the center, restaurants and the park. we payed extra for breakfast that was good and a big span of choises though i think it could be included with the price that isnt cheap. Silvia was our hostess, simply a perfect one, was very helpfull and kind, gave us tips for the attractions in the area, and always smiling. the place is fantastic for big families. the opening of the spa is limited and depending on the visiters

Just got back from a great time after our second half term stay here. We had such a good stay last time that we were worried that it would not live up to our high expectations. We needn't have worried, it was perfect again. All of the staff simply could not have been more helpful, friendly and flexible, you really do feel that nothing is too much trouble! The accommodation is clean spacious and well equipped. The food is all good quality local cuisine. It has a family chalet feel whilst being big enough to have everything you need. We will be back next year!

I was here for the second time and still high quality standard. Villa Gardenia is very modern from outside and inside. Rooms are big enough for family with 2 children. In the room you can find beautiful kitchen with refrigerator and basic things for cooking. I really appreciated wellness that is inside the villa and offer many ways to relax. Breakfast was very delicious and the staff was very nice. Villa is close to the Donovaly center where are situated many restaurants. We really enjoyed our stay here.

We stayed in this villa for two nights. Hotel was almost empty. Our room was spacious and clean. Bed was as well very comfortable, just the people who worked outside wake up us at 7 am:-((. In the room you will find fully equipped kitchen. Girls at the reception were very kind and attentive. Breakfast was good choice of food. We didnt try the wellness area. Wifi was for free and worked perfectly. Needs to be nice during the winter time with a lot of snow. Just the steps to the apartments are not the best choice.
