Just returned from a weeks stay with Thomas cook on an all inclusive basis at the Hotel Atlantic Palace. The hotel is about an hour and half from Naples AIrport. The hotel is situated on a busy road but it does state this in the description and it is out of Sorrento town but again we new this before booking. The hotel runs a shuttle bus and there was 10 of us staying as a group and we never had a problem booking this, we found it very useful especially having four children in the group and not wanting to risk walking on the busy Italian roads ! Our room was at the front of the hotel - room was large but we had a double bed and two single beds in there. The room was kept very clean. Double bed was comfortable but the single beds were rock solid. The walls are so thin that you could hear people snoring and having a conversation like they were in the room with you ! Food was not great not Italian at all, awful packet scramble egg and greasy bacon for breakfast and little frankfurter sausages that sometimes ended up on the pizzas at lunch ! Bread was stale. Lunch was better as they had a grill on and fresh pizzas - the grill had prawns, lamp chops and sword fish. Salads were ok but same every time. Dinner was waiter service and was hit and miss - omelette was always good and you can ask for one at breakfast. You would often see the food again the next day reused. spirits were in brand bottles but they definitely refilled with cheaper brands. We think they did this with the coca cola, fanta and sprite it never tasted the same as when we went out for drinks. We went out for dinner a couple of times to taste the lovely Italian food that you come to Italy for ! Staff were lovely and very helpful the pool barman Catello was very friendly as we're the waiters and reception/managers. Would recommend you go to the sister hotel Hotel Conca Azzurra - the bus takes you there - it is down a windy road but they have three pools that are salt water and a beach it was like going back in time, we all really enjoyed it as the hotel pool can be very busy at the hotel atlantic. Children still really enjoyed it there though and we never had a problem getting a sun lounger - perhaps this was because we went the last week of the school holidays. Also go up onto the roof terrace it has amazing views of mount Vesuvius - really lovely watching the sunset with a glass of wine.
Don't want to put anybody off going - you just get what you pay for - we had a lovely holiday :-)
