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.

“Nice pools and slides”
Reviewed 13 August 2013

I do find this place a bit pricy, but you can't get away from it in the summer. Though the Macha river is a nice, free alternative, if you have time to go there. This place does get quite crowded, but there is a lot to do: lake, pools, slides, taning on the beach. Unfortunately the slides do cost extra.

“Pool with lake and mountainview”
Reviewed 7 August 2013

One of the greatest swimmingpool centres i have visited, even if it is in my hometown :)
Great for families with kids.
Only disadvantage: you need to chose the right time to visit: on weekends in the summer it can be quite crowded.
I recommend a visit to the new annexed, much more quiet spa for a more relaxing saltwater pool experience with lake and mountain view.

“A day of total relaxation”
Reviewed 1 August 2013

A very nice swimming pool and attractions green and clean area by the lakeshore of Lago Maggiore. Being right by the border with Switzerland, the entrance fee can be paid in Euros, Swiss Francs or Credit Card. About 35 euros per day, per family. Good clean water, and specially the water slides are fun. A bit crowded with small children running everywhere, but there are possibilities for relaxation. The food was a bit pricy and few selections, but most of the people brought their own picnic food.

“cool down”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

Living above Locarno, this is one of my regular haunts. I have a yearly subscription to the pool and gym. There are three indoor pools - one for babies, one for 'messing around' and aquagym, spinning etc and a 25m pool for 'serious' lap swimmers. Outside, lakeside, are three more pools, including a big 50m pool, plus a diving pool with a 10m board. This is open at intervals under supervision. There is also an enormous waterchute, which ends up in an inside pool, and is open all year. The setting is superb. In the winter, from the hot pool outside you can gaze over the lake towards Bellinzona, or look up at the snowcapped peaks of Cimetta, and Gambarogno. In the summer, you can stretch out on the grass which goes down the the lakeside beach. If you're feeling very energetic you can visit the gym on the first floor before you relax round the pool. It's fully equipped with all the latest technology in the way of exercise machines, and the A/C works a treat! You have the same views over the lake and mountains as from the pools.

“Making a big slash with a terrific view”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

The Lido Locarno has been going through some extensive upgrades with a new Spa and Restaurant added to the facility.

With the attraction of so many pools both inside and outside it becomes a 'must place' to go and cool off, exercise and keep fit. The warm one outside in the winter is a must to experience.

Good grounds to laze around in and a couple of restaurants to enjoy while you visit

The views looking out across the Lake Maggiore are spectacular- that alone is worth the visit!
