We decided to stay at Gardaland Resort as we wanted a base to visit the Lake Garda area and somewhere not too far from Venice from where we were travelling. The hotel is your basic theme park resort hotel - think Newport Bay Club at Disneyland Paris for comparisons. Although the double double rooms were not large, they were very clean and smelt lovely. The bathroom was a good size with free toiletries everyday. There was also a fridge in which you could store your own food - there is a supermarket on the road to Peschiera so buying drinks and snacks was alot cheaper than buying from the vending machines on site. There is a small arcade with various games to play which kept my 8 year old son very happy. Wi-Fi is only available in the bar area so while we went online, my son went and played in the arcade. Breakfast was OK but not a great deal of selection. Cooked breakfast was poor by UK standards with very undercooked fatty bacon and rubber scrambled eggs - we stuck to cereal, croissants and juice. Tickets to Gardaland Park were not included in the cost of the stay (unlike Disneyland) and cost 29 euros each. However if you want a "fast pass" for some of the rides, this was extra and cost anything from 10 euros for a few rides to 50 euros for all the rides! The pool area was very good with lots of sunbeds. We didn't find it too busy but then we used it when we got back from a day's sightseeing from 5pm onwards. All in all an OK stay but not such value for money as expected.
