“Mama Mia! What a fab hotel!”
Reviewed 3 September 2012

We booked this hotel relatively last minute after reading such consistently great reviews - and they were all true!

Here are some of the hotel's best bits:
Pool area - various pools and sun bed areas mean you never feel like you're at some enormous hotel (and also mean couples and families can co-exist happily);
The pools are beautiful - with bubble options and a few in-pool 'beds';
Indoor pools are also stunning and very quiet - grey slate means they look every bit the high-end spa, but you have them practically to yourself;
Rooms - very smart and contemporary;

Bardolino itself:
Impossibly quaint lakeside town which is 5 mins walk from the hotel. Perfect size of place - lots of restaurants (all delicious and quite reasonably priced), plus lakeside cafes for gelato or a generous measure of prosecco at sunset;

Best bits:
Chilli & ginger dark chocolate gelato at Bianceneve gelateria;
Prosecco at around 2.50 Euros per glass;
Antipasti plates such as parma ham and buffalo mozzarella that could feed an army - we shared!
Hiring a speed boat at the far end of the town - 60 Euros for an hour (plus deposit) - no better way to enjoy the lake!
Great bus and ferry network to reach other towns;

Enjoy!

Hotel Aqualux was the perfect choice for us. Although we do not have children with us, it seemed to offer a great deal for families too. Excellent and attractive pools, fabulous treatments, well located. The rooms were very good. We ate at the hotel most days and found the food as good as any in the area and competively priced, which is important. A far better choice than other restaurants around. We also found the hotel well located for excursions on and around the lake. I would recommend it.

We stayed in this hotel for 5 nights at the beginning of August. We enjoyed it so much we tried to stay longer but unfortunately the hotel was fully booked and sadly we had to move on! The hotel is brand new. The online photos of the hotel don't really do it justice. They make the hotel look very corporate in my opinion, but it is actually so much nicer with lovely gardens and water features. The pools are great and the pool attendant is very helpful. The bedrooms, bar, restaurant (for lunch) are all nice and quite reasonably priced. There is a lovely deck if you want to eat breakfast outside. We had a double room, it was quite small but adequate. For our 3 teenager kids we had a twin room with a sofa bed. This room seemed much bigger. The underground carpark and free wifi are very handy.

The hotel is situated behind Bardolino town centre, a short, pleasant 5 - 10 mins walk away where you will find lots of nice restaurants. I really cannot fault this lovely hotel.

Spent 4 days at this hotel with a family of four, 2 adults and 2 kids (under 10 years old). We have been very happy with the experience at this property and we surely recommend it to anyone looking for a nice hotel in Lake Garda area.

- very new and modern with all comforts (great air conditioning, very nice indoor and outdoor swimming pools, Spa area, free wifi, underground parking, gym). The whole property was created with great attention to design.
- Good beds! Our room was equipped with a sofa bed that was opened into a bed for two, large enough to comfortably host two kids.
- beautiful "garden like" pool area, you can have breakfast and lunch outside weather permitting
- great location, just 5-10 minutes easy walk to Bardolino center. A very nice small village with plenty of restaurants, bars and shops to check out.
- good breakfast buffet with a wide selection of warm and cold food and beverages

what could be improved?
- food served for lunch was pretty expensive and of average quality. You are better off walking to Bardolino and use one of the restaurants there
- service at the restaurant was at times not up to the rest of the hotel services. Waiters where talking loud to each other while serving people. Could be done more professionally.

What we have not tried:
- the gym was still under construction when we visited. We were told it would open one week later
- the Spa looked very nice but we did not use it as kids under 12 are not allowed to be there.

Overall, we liked this place very much and will surely be back when we visit Lake Garda the next time.

Room Tip: room 216 was just above the hotel bar. On some nights it was a bit noisy as there was a deejay and l...

stayed half board in August. Location good, style and design very modern. Room facilities excellent, glorious garden with water features and a tranquil spa area for relaxation - everything has been thought of. The 8 pools allow for a unique holiday experience. Food was excellent with a good choice whilst staying true to the hotel's Italian roots. Best of all though were the staff who were all polite, helpful and genuinely wanting to do their job well. We went to the opera in Verona and the hotel sorted our taxi and the restaurant manager arranged for us to eat at the hotel at lunchtime instead of the evening - it is effort like this which makes the Acqualux a clear no.1 in Bardolino. Grazie!

Room Tip: an aqua room will give you a pool and garden view and the rooms are so well sound proofed you won...

We have just returned from a fabulous holiday at the Aqualux Bardolino. We only booked the hotel four weeks ago and it turned into a wonderful trip. We were booked on a half board basis something we would not normally do as we prefer to try the local restaurants however we were highly delighted with the quality of the food. The hotel is ideally located and it is easy to visit other towns on the lake using the ferries or the local transport (the buses are very cheap). All the staff were extremely friendly and helpful and the rooms and facilities were 5 star. The gardens and pools are really good, loved the spa seats in the pool Would love to return but get the feeling we will have to pay a lot more,
