We checked in without any problem.
The room was a Twin with a Balcony, nicely decorated. The room was a "for women" package and came with lots of nice toiletry touches in the bathroom. The Shower was a Double width Unit with Spa Nozzles and a Shower.
The room had plenty of storage, room safe, LCD TV and a large balcony with plastic table and chairs. If the trees had not been in full leaf we would have had an amazing Lake View. (Room 342). Very good quality bedding and Mattress Toppers, the beds were extremely comfortable.
(The hotel is also very quiet, or it was during our stay. A Pleasant Surprise)
The Indoor Pool was lovely; as was the SPA area, with Steam Room, Sauna, Hot Stone Loungers, Showers, Relaxation Area & Foot Baths. The Jacuzzi was not working.
The outdoor pool area is very nice, however I can imagine in hot weather is very busy. The Hotel is only feet from the Lake Edge and there is a beautiful short walk around the edge into the centre of Bardolino.
The hotel serves afternoon Tea & Coffee in the Terrace area which is free for guests and a very nice touch.
This is a nice hotel, but is starting to look a little tired around the edges. We also found the staff and service to be a little wanting... I bought a bottle of Champagne for my wife and I and we were not even offered nibbles as an accompaniment, I mentioned this at reception while also complaining about the Spa service (Next Paragraph) and within minutes, crisps and nibbles had appeared... Why was it necessary to complain? The barman looked completely disinterested.
My wife and I tried to book a Whole Day Spa package from their Spa menu at close on 200Euros each.. The Spa receptionist said she needed to check with another hotel before she would agree it and promised to notify reception with a message. We were out all the next day and when I went to reception over 24hrs later, nobody knew anything about it! Terrible Service!
Breakfast is Typical European Buffet and has a large selection, the breakfast room is very busy and did not appear to be air conditioned as was very uncomfortable.
Yet again.. It must be an Italy thing? The Hotel offers free WiFi, but it is only available between 16.30 & 20.30hrs??? This is ridiculous, it is a 3rd party supply and yet again needs username & password to log in, every single time you try to access it.. this is SO frustrating!!! When are hotels going to join the 21st Century?
A Beautiful Location... I Would visit again, if the price was right!
