Spent a week half board in August at the Antonella. Room was a good size although like others have said, didn't have air con & it was pretty hot at night. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom fine.
The location of the hotel was good - just a wee walk into town although along a busy road. It was pretty flat too so would recommend for older people as quite a few of the hotels in Malcesine are on steep roads. Would recommend wearing light coloured clothes at night so as you are seen or take the route along the seafront for safety. You pass a little supermarket on the way into Malcesine from the hotel so you can pick up water etc there.
The pool area was great - nice pool and enough sunbeds for residents. It is quite a small pool so you have to hope that the other residents show consideration for others around the pool - which they didn't always do.
Don't worry on the first night when you may not have a choice of menu - we were worried that we had no idea what we would be served all week. At the end of the first night's meal you will get a menu for the following night to choose from - 3 starters - there's usually a pasta dish for a starter/3 mains - usually meat/fish/veggie dish/3 sweets - fruit etc plus every night you get to choose from a serve yourself salad bar. The food is more than passable & it took away that need for searching for a restaurant every night.
We did the Venice by night trip - great - really worthwhile and gives you plenty of time to see the city.
Also did Verona by public bus but that was disappointing as it took ages to get there at that time of year. Verona is worth a look though.
