Great swimming pool
Posted Aug 3, 2015 on Hotels
Stayed for 4 nights in July as a family of 4. After spending 2 nights slap bang in the middle of Verona, we picked up a hire car and used the Antares as our base to tour the area. A half day in Sirmione (too crowded to be really pleasant), a half day on the beach at Lazise (recommended), a boat trip to Bardolino (great shopping), a cable car ride from Malcesine up to Monte Baldo, and a full day at the Gardaland theme park. We chose the Antares because of its swimming pool, which is OUTSTANDING. When we got tired of sightseeing, we spent time at the hotel pool, which was great. I could say a few things about the hotel's drawbacks - tour groups in the restaurant, remote location etc - but there really is no point because it is all about the pool. Remember what's important and forget the rest.
