As a large famiy with children of varying ages, some now young adults, we have been to this resort on a number of occasions since it opened in 2005 staying at the hotel and the apartments (usually book when there are good offers available on the internet as not sure it would be worth the full brochure price especially the all inclusive option).We always have a truly fantastic time as there is something for everyone such as quiet areas by the top pool if you want to escape or the more lively scene by the laguana pool for the younger ones.
Pesheira has great bus and train links that can get you anywhere at a fraction of the cost of the travel company excursions. Verona is very close nearby and worth visiting.
The Hotel animation team are very good / entertaining lead by fabulous Cyril but you can take it or leave it depending on your mood and don't take it seriously!. The food wouldn't win awards but suits the younger kids who are usually in a hurry to be somewhere else and can get a little monotonous in the evening depending on the chef so if you're are looking for good Italian cuisine would recommend self catering and try the excellent restaurants in Pesheira such as Bella Vista or La Plume that are not too expensive and have fabulous views of the lake.
Hired a car this last trip via 121 Car hire/ AVIS in Pescheira so got to see most of the lake.This wasn't too expensive or difficult at all despite the reputation of some Italian drivers and meant we didn't have to rely on the complimentary shuttle bus to and from town. Lasize and Malsecine lovely resorts to visit.There is definitely something for everyone at this hotel, the staff are very helpful but it is big and can be loud, but we all love it and keep being drawn back as there is always something different to see and do.Looking forward to 2013...
