Owner description: Lido Locarno is a unique oasis for recreation, sport and well-being.Its hot spring, swimming pool, water slides and play pools make it the best equipped stateof-the-art aquatic park in Ticino. Indoor and outdoor pools are open throughout the year and are located on one of the most beautiful beaches of Lake Maggiore, surrounded by a dramatic alpine scenery on one side and the magnificent lake on the other. Visitors can swim, relax and have fun in the pool and lose themselves in the lake's tranquility.

“The best place to swim EVER”
Reviewed 16 July 2013 via mobile

Been going there since I was a kid over 40 years ago, the place is magic! On the lake, sunny from sunrise to sunset, a view on all the mountains surrounding Locarno. Swim your laps, let the kids stroll around, whizz through the slides, show off your backflips from the 10m jumping board, enjoy cool drinks and ice cream, no better place anywhere. It is very clean, safe (lifeguards everywhere), friendly. It's a classic and guest come from far to enjoy.

“Swimming pool with a view”
Reviewed 27 June 2013

Newly build pool, fantastic views. Slightly scary slides, the go very fast. Which the kids find great obviously. Went there with my two kids of 4 and 6. They had a great time. In the summer outside is also a good place to be.

“Fun, Fun, Fun!”
Reviewed 27 April 2013

My family (kids 11 and 9 years old) and I made this a day trip by train, we live not far from Lucerne. The Lido is about a 15 minute walk, all along the lake, from Locarno train station. It is a wonderful destination when you want to spend a fun day with the kids. There are 4 slides but note that the minimum age is 6 years old. For one slide, the 'looping', there are weight requirements: the child has to be 45kgs at least. There are 2 pools and one baby pool inside, and then there are another 3 pools outdoor. Plus you have of course the whole Lago Maggiore at your disposal. Very, very pretty. The summer season does not start until May so when we were there, there was still work going on in one of the outdoor pools and the in the grass fields at the lake. So we could not get into everything. But it also meant it was not busy of course. I imagine this place to be packed in Summer!

“Wow your family and friends”
Reviewed 26 April 2013

This is a breathtaking facility! Panoramic views of mountains and lakes, enjoyed from the relaxing comfort of an outdoor thermal pool. Waterslides, weight room facing the view, aquatic fitness classes ... all very welcoming and non-intimidating. This is our *favorite* thing to do on the weekends with the whole family. Toddlers, teens, and adults are all equally thrilled with the Lido Locarno.

“Great day out with the kids”
Reviewed 25 September 2012

Had a great family day at the lido with the themed water slides and diving pools. Arrived at 10am and stayed through to 7pm and kids entertained all day. Would recommend taking own food as food at the lido a bit dissapointing and on the expensive side.
