Arrived 19th October 2012 for a week of perfect weather! 25C. All inclusive. All staff were very friendly. Waiter service excellent! Enjoyed the breakfast, lunch and evening menus. Twice had packed lunches (request at breakfast) - no problem. Courtesy bus to Sorrento centre - or 30 mins walk (no footpath for most of it - face on coming traffic). Nearest walk - turn left from hotel - walk 4 minutes to junction on right (church) and walk down to Roman Villa / fort remains. Free map from hotel reception. You can swim off rocks but not easy entry! Steep walk back up. Nearest beach - Marina di Puolo (good for a swim). Turn left - past garage on left then round sweeping bend (sea view to right). Below Hotel Dania sign on right - notice tiny glazed tile indicating 1000m to Puolo. Walk down pretty path below Olive Trees - before joining narrow road to lovely shingle beach. Takes 24 mins steep walk back to hotel! Room minor maintenance issues - loose toilet seat, popup waste needed adjustment. Old TV sound and picture quality poor but not too bothered about TV on holiday! Fridge useful for wine left from dinner and water bottles from bar! Used free bus to Sorrento and cheap return train (excellent service) to Pompei. Arriving at Pompei - unless you want a guided tour just buy tickets and then go to little Tourist kiosk on left (map and guide book free!) Other large kiosk sign says maps only supplied via tour guide (not true!) Took a boat trip to Capri. Return tickets with specified times but you can get an earlier boat back. Beautiful island. The Gardens of Augustus - (1 Euro entry) spectacular views (toilets nearby). 2 coffees 11 Euros!!
A lovely holiday - enhanced by the excellent attitude and service of all staff at Hotel Atlantic Palace. Best we have experienced across Europe!
Very good - would be an excellent rating but for the minor room issues. The bed was comfortable though (most important) and it was near end of season!
