A four-star stay in a stunning region of northern Italy, boasting incredible natural landscapes to explore

The Lowdown

With awe-inspiring mountain views and magnificent fjord-like formations, Italy’s Lake Garda region proves that bigger sometimes is better. Near the northern end of the lake, you’ll find Active & Family Hotel Gioiosa, the perfect base to explore this natural wonder. Nordic walking, mountain biking and climbing are just some of the activities on the itinerary here – if you can tear yourself away from the hotel’s sparkling pool.
It’s not all about the impressive outdoors here, though. The inviting guest rooms are sleek and contemporary, providing lovely views and all the comforts you could need. If that’s not enough relaxation for you, the luxurious spa is a soothing sanctuary, with international therapies and authentic hammam experiences. Your taste buds will also be taken care of, with the hotel’s restaurant on hand to introduce you to the surrounding area’s traditional Trentino flavors.


The rooms here feature clean, contemporary décor, with light-wood touches that add to the inviting ambiance. Lavanda Standard Double rooms offer beautiful Monte Calino views from the private balcony, while Oleandro Family rooms provide more space, with a sofa bed and a large balcony with panoramic lake views.


Typical Trentino dishes and regional produce keep the focus local in the hotel restaurant. You can enjoy a generous buffet breakfast, afternoon snack or four-course evening meal in the bright and inviting dining room or on the new terrace in the olive garden. Gluten- and lactose-free options are also available, as well as Mediterranean classics and an impressive wine list.


Drawing on centuries of Mediterranean bathing rituals and traditions, the experienced professionals here are ready to ease your body and mind into a more tranquil state. Indulge yourself in a cleansing hammam experience, or choose from a range of massage treatments, including sports, Thai and Ayurvedic styles.


The hotel is located on the outskirts of the town of Riva del Garda, in the north of Italy. Here the Trentino region and its abundance of outdoor activities are at your fingertips, including mountain biking, Nordic walking, climbing and canyoning. The area is full of scenic treasures to discover, such as the lovely Varone waterfall, just a 10-minute walk from your front door. The city center is a 5-minute drive or taxi ride from the hotel, providing an array of lovely restaurants, cafés and shopping.

Great find on the way to Como

Only had 24 hours and wish we had more time to take advantage of the pool, minature golf, sauna and exercise room. Helpful staff, clean comfortable rooms and a incredible breakfast buffet. As a bonus a 5 minute walk to the grotto and a 10 minute car ride to the center of town / waterfront.

Great place to stay

A bit far from city center, meaning you need a car to circulate, but definitely a great place to stay with very good standards.
Hotel facilities is very good and Staff extremely professional and caring.

A really nice family hotel with friendly staff. Great for small kids with organized activities and a nice playground and swimming pool. Breakfast is provided with a good variety and dinner is generally nice. Conveniently located with nearby public transport.

Relaxing vacation

Another year of family fun at the hotel. Staff is always friendly and helpful! The bus stop is a 2 min walk. Weather was wonderful this year! Breakfast was great along with dinner. The hotel offers gluten free meals, in which for me is absolutely fantastic cause I have a gluten intolerance.

We stayed in the Family Suite (children have their own room), and was able to cook when the kids got hungry during the day. Dishes were provided. Another plus was the use of the washer and dryer in the hotel.

Although we planned on taking a trip to another land next year, the hotel has once again impressed us so that we will be coming back next year!

Hotel Gioiosa is a home away from home. For the second time, we felt welcomed and comfortable.

I added a picture from the poolside and from our room.
