We stayed at this hotel at the end of August for 5 nights, when we got there we were upgraded to a garden suite which was lovely, our own sunbeds on the ground floor patio with shrubs all around, fresh fruit, toiletries everyday and an enormous bed. The hotel is new but is really nice and although it was still school holidays it always seemed very peaceful and relaxing. We only had breakfast in the hotel. The first night we went down to the front which is only a 10min stroll away and it was very busy and very touristy, pizza pizza pizza and ice cream parlours! So having had a mediocre meal there we decided that every night we would try and find somewhere different.
We had one a la carte meal in the hotel which was pricey but well worth it, cooked and served beautifully. Our waitress was Marieta Jovanovic and she was lovely, excellent at her job and really friendly. The next night we tried a pizza restaurant along the main road called La Palafitte - there pizzas were the best ever, it might look a bit dated inside but the food was really good, 2 pizzas and 2 drinks for about 25 euros. The next night we tried Al Capital which is home cooked food and excellent. The guy who greated us was really nice he had travelled around and worked in London for a few years in a top class restaurant and his english was perfect. He explains all the food to you and is really welcoming and chatty. This was the best meal we had had. Finally the worst one - we decided to drive out into the hills and came across a pretty looking restuarant called Antica Osteria - omg this was the worst food I had ever had absolutely disgusting we should have gone with our gut instinct when we went in and nobody was friendly or helpful but we sat down and grinned and beared it. DO NOT GO.
Overall Bardolino is lovely, we hired a car and went a new town everyday and the scenery and picturesque towns are unique. This part of Lake Garda is well worth a visit.
I would just also like to say a BIG thank you to the maitre d' at the hotel Giancarlo who helped and advised us where to go and what to see and was always welcoming whenever he saw us he would go out of his way to come and say hello and also thanks again to Marieta you were both lovely. Thank you.
