“fantastic family holiday”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 October 2011

We wanted an all inclusive hotel in Lake Garda and not many hotels offer that option, however our travel agents came up trumps with this resort. My husband, myself and our 11 year old son went for a week in August this year and absolutely loved it. We can't praise this resort enough, the staff were very friendly and helpful, food and choice of it was fantastic, spa, pools and sports facilites are fantastic as too are the views and the location. Our room was big enough, we did have a problem with the air conditioning but that was quickly sorted and we were offered a room change which we declined. There is a free courtesy bus which runs from the hotel to Peschiera quite a few times a day and car hire is not really needed as lots of courtesy buses going to tourist places from Pescheira town. We also caught the coach up to Malcesine and took the cable car to the mountain top, Mount Baldo whci had breathtaking views and well worth the trip which is about an hour from the resort. I would highly recommend this hotel for family holidays and the all inclusive option really is worth the money. The grounds and hotel are clean and well looked after. We booked this holiday through Thomas Cooke and our rep was great and popped into the hotel a few times during the week, and we booked the Malcesine trip with the rep at a reduced cost. thomas Cooke offered quite a few excursion trips from the resort.

Room Tip: my advice would be go for an upstairs room as the views from our balcony were lovley, we were in the...

We stayed for the last two weeks in July 2011. We took our son, daughter-in-law and 11 & 8 year old grand daughters. We have nothing but praise for the staff of the hotel, the food, the entertainment, the location and the Golf Course. Peschiera was a pretty town and a wonderful position to either go on the boats or take a train (we went to Venice, Padova and Verona). We were on an all inclusive tariff, which we found good value although they charged extra for proprietary brands.
We did not miss a hire car as everything was so handy.

We have just arrived home from a fabulous holiday at the Parc Hotel, Paradiso Golf Resort. We were a group of 5 Adults and 5 children with ages ranging from 70 to 5 and it was wonderful. We were staying as all inclusive in the Parc Hotel, which is beautfiul, clean, and with stunning grounds and marvellous views. The entertainment staff were excellent! They put on evening 'West End' type shows and during the day they were always on the go providing everything from Darts to water aerobics, but you didnt feel forced into anything, the children had a 'ball'. A fantastic set of people in the 'Animation Crew' who made us feel really welcome and the children loved their 'mini disco' evey evening.

We all loved our holiday and found the staff and facilities perfect. Lake Garda and the surrounding towns are very beautiful and picturesque. We also enjoyed days out to nearby Gardaland and Movieland, only a 10 minute taxi drive away. The bus service that the hotel offer is very punctual and easy to navigate.

The Hotel itself is modern with a real quality feel to it, we occupied several rooms and they were all spacious and cleaned thoroughly daily. The food choice was excellent with meats and fish plentiful, but be warned, there is no childrens section so if you have fussy little eaters......

Only down sides were that the 'All Inclusive' was very limited. Soft drinks were from a machine and they were sparce. With the bar at the main family 'Laguna' pool offering no food & drink to those on the 'All Inclusive' which was rather disappointing, and the only food available was light snacks like biscuits or cakes at the piano bar. We found that the children loved to be at the Laguna Pool as it played popular music and the animation team and the activities took place there but we had to return to the grill bar for a drink/ice lolly as we were all inclusive, which is a good 10 minute walk away in very hot weather.

One tip I would recommend is .........take mosquito repellant!! We were all eaten alive by the little blighters and used to see plenty of people walking round with legs that looked like they had chicken pox! But this would certainly not put it off returning to the Parc Hotel.

The hotel was not as advertised from the holiday company (Thomas cook), I expected it to be a quiet holiday very few families, this was not the case! The children were in the adult pool - no supervison from life guards. Lots of ants and mosquitos by the pool area - if you are sensitive to bites you will definitely need to take something with you!

The rep was very vague about the excursions available and at times did not seem bothered about the problems.

The all inclusive drinks were a little poor on selection, however Italy is very expensive!!

The food was very good on some occasions - then poor on others. It was re-used on a daily basis. The pork was undercooked (blood coming out of it).

The bus into town was excellent and the spa facilities were fab! The trip to the dolomites was out of this world. The rooms were very comfortable and the air conditioning was a god send!!

If you go to Venice, take alot of money with you! The trips are expensive and it was very hot, looking about £3.00 for a coke and £10.00 for a coffee in some shops!! You will need to shop around in the back alleys for a sensible price for food and drink. You will also need 1.50 euros to go to the toilets!!

The internet was in dial up, so very slow and in the evening the men had to wear trousers to dinner.

Room Tip: Very good rooms, however the cleaner did not clean thoroughly. Cobwebs in the room and she did not h...

Just returned from park hotel paradiso golf resort..Overall hotel was very good.however their all inclusive package was a complete sham we felt that we were treated like2nd class guests.We were issued with a key which was used to open machines so you could have a drink,unfortunately this was then dispensed into plastic containers (even coffee).If we paid we could have our drinks in a glass.In my mind I had paid upfront for all my drinks etc,but it seems the management chose to ignore this little item. We did complain to our rep who made a list of our grievances and would pass them on to head office.I thin that this hotel should study other countries e.g. Spain who are top notch at this service

We greatly enjoyed staying at the Paradiso Golf Hotel (almost) on lake Garda. Taking your breakfasts on the elevated terrace with a great view of the Alps stays in your mind. We als liked the course which is ok both for low and high handicappers, despite some noise on some holes due to the proximity of the motorway (the hotel is perhaps 2 or 3 miles off).
The nearby lake has a lot of scenic attractions.
Staff is friendly, competent and definitely multi-lingual.
Make sure to go to the "La Plume" restaurant in town. You can take the hotel shuttle or your own car of course.
We would go there on holiday again.

Room Tip: We obtained a nice junior suite at no surcharge, so it's worthwile asking.

We didn't really know what to expect as we had never visited Italy before. However, we will definitely go back. This is a great Hotel, very clean and food was excellent. Some of the staff need an injection of friendliness but most were very nice. Advice to travelers is to learn some Italian before you go.
