“What a nightmare”
Reviewed September 16, 2012

Not enough space on this to write what I want so I'll keep it sweet! If u like cockroaches on the walls, blue bottles landing on ur head bed bugs eating away on your body and sleep on sheets that haven't been cleaned with sweat on the pillows and black pubes on ur sheets this is the place for you!!! DO NOT GO TO THIS PLACE

Room Tip: Dont do it

Check in: given key to room. There was a man in the toilet of the room they gave me. Later wanted to go to spa. Brochure said 10pm closing time. Receptionist said 8pm. I went at 7pm, lady said "we closed". Icing on the cake was that I bought a fairly expensive piece of clothing for my toddler nephew which was gift wrapped. I saw it by my window the morning I was checking out. Stupidly I left it there but phoned later and it was "gone" and the maid did not see a gift wrapped item? Avoid this place.

Room Tip: Just avoid.

Looking for a hotel base in Northern Italy then the hotel Antares is perfect. As a family of four - two adults and two teenage boys this hotel ticked all the boxes. Picked up the car from the airport Villafranc, it was pre booked but this wasn't necessary as there was a great selection of car companies easily accessible on arrival. The drive to the hotel was five minutes away and very easy to find. Room was clean tidy albeit a little dated but in good working order. A little snug as a family room but we were comfortable. A few more hangers would have been nice and when we asked they didn't arrive possibly because the English speaking reception staff didn't really understand English. Always smiling and at times appeared a little impolite but mainly because I think they didn't understand what we were saying. Restaurant - excellent...wonderful selection of breakfast items and well worth the bed and breakfast deal. The staff in the restaurant were hard working, efficient and very friendly to the point of translating evening menu. Evening meals very reasonably priced with a good salad selection. Pool area lovely with life guards. American bar a little sparse and in need of the tlc, cluttered, don't expect Peroni boys happy with the slush. Horse smells from the stables could be strong at times but as fans of horses really didn't bother us as rooms had great air conditioning to shut it out. A walk down the road to stores and supermarket minutes away as well as a lovely Pizzaria, a very busy road though so I wouldn't walk it at night. The hotel is close to the airport and main road but surprisingly quiet. Finally hotel location is perfect for touring Lake Garda, theme parks and even a great trip to Venice as well as Verona.

Room Tip: If you have walking difficulties the one lift is rather snug and the energy saving lights have a lit...

Went to Verona for the holidays and had a great time!!! Was very impressed with the hotel facilities and amenities. Comfortable room, very clean, nicely furnished and stylishly decorated. The only drawback was that the heating was too high and it felt very hot, but for the rest was fine. Very quiet even being so close to the airport and main road. The jacuzzy, main feature of the bathroom, which let you either enjoy a relaxing bath after a strenous long day of shopping or sightseeing, or simply accentuate your romantic getaway... Just Great! The breakfast buffet was amazing, with a great variety of choices and for dinner hearty meals at acceptable prices, Friendly staff either in the reception that the wellness center, we felt really good!!
