“Viva Gorgeous Riva”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 June 2008

Riva del garda Italy.Englovacanze apartments.June13 2008.
From Navan Ireland.
Just home from Riva del garda and must express how beautiful,romantic and safe this place is.Totally Yob-free! The culture here is addictive. All ages can mingle together and enjoy the wonderful surroundings including the sailing,water sports, the walks and the boat trips to the various picturesque villages around the lake,NOT to mention the ITALIAN CUISINE which is enhanced by their smart dress, proud service and slow pace of the meals , their excellent WINES,their premium larger NASTRO AZZURO and their classy restaurants like LEON D' ORA and the VOLT,both a must for those that enjoy the occasional quality dining experience.
While well mannered children are adored here ,Riva is more suited to all aged groups, all couples and super for family occasions.
Normally we stay half board [B+B is far better and less regimental] at the magnificent GRAND HOTEL LIBERTY with its superb facilities and staff, but this time due to tragic circumstances we had to cancel our planned holiday and grab a late deal. Regrettably we picked the ENGLO-VACANZE apartments.While the self catering apartments were clean and spacious as stated in previous reviews,the place badly needs a serious face-lift and a change of management. The place has fantastic potential but sadly it appears to be slowly dying.The swimming pool is not inviting nor is the garden area and the out-side furniture is tired.The place needs better and proud maintenance staff. Apart from the POWER-WALKING ,STROKE-SLOPE from the edge of the town up to the apartments, the broken and uneven drive-way is not only dangerous, but looks bad and robs you initially of the holiday feeling .Only those seeking varicose veins would welcome the climb home up this steep slope.If you enjoy a nice meal and a bottle of wine down the lovely town,which is only five minutes walk [downwards from the apartments] get a taxi back [ 8 euro and takes 3mins] this will take away stroke fear.We made a mistake with this accommodation but this
will not stop us from returning to Riva

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 September 2007

I have just returned from a week in Riva in Lake Garda. We stayed in a one bedroom apartment self catering. I was very impressed. It was very clean and spacious with a double bedroom, a large living area with pull out sofa bed ,a fully equiped kitchen and large bathroom. We had a lovely view over the mountains and over the rest of the town. You are about a 5 min walk from the centre of Riva so it is lovely and quiet and you are still near to all the shops and restaurants etc..I would def recommend a stay in englovacanze. It is not plush by any means but for cleanliness, value for money, space and location if gets the thumbs up from me!
Only a couple of word of warning, as this is a converted residence apparantly not all rooms are the same so I cannot vouch for the size of the rest of the rooms/apartments.
Also there is a steep enough hill leading to the entrance. It didn't bother us but it would not be suitable for people with walking difficulties.
Also if you are staying self catering you may need to bring some towels of your own if you are staying longer then 1 week. They will supply towels but don't change them for the duration of your stay. (this only applies to self catering, not the hotel rooms)

None of that would put me off going back though. Just thought I should mention it!

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2006

Stayed just one night, but I was very happy about the big, modern (and cosy!) double room in the attic with a very clean, new fashioned, spacious bathroom. (I don´t know if the rooms below the attic are also nice). New renovated exterior. Own parking space. 5 min walking distance to the city center with restaurants and shops. You get a discount of 20% in the "Ristorante Centrale" at the market place, when you are guest in Englo Vancanze. The only thing, I was not so pleased was the breakfast - but in Italy, you often get only the essentials. However, the breakfast was not too bad!
