We arrived at the Atlantic Palace on 26 October and stayed 7 nights. The weather was terrible but the quality of the hotel still made this a great holiday.
The hotel is very clean. There is a bar area with lots of seating and it is very comfortable and inviting. The entertainment in the evening was not great but it was out of season. The range of drinks on offer under the all inclusive is very extensive. There are beers, wines, spirits and cocktails all covered under all inclusive.
The restaurant is lovely and most meals have a sit down menu, although there is a salad buffet and desserts are a buffet style. This is very unlike typical inclusive 'help yourselves to all meals' and as such the Atlantic Palace has more class than most all inclusive holidays. This is certainly not your Benidorm type of establishment and I suspect some of the negative reviews on here are from people who like that type of holiday and were disappointed that actually the Atlantic Palace is a better type of place.
There is a courtesy shuttle bus which runs throughout the day and into the very late evening. You have to book in advance to guarantee a seat. If you use it late in the evening (after 6:30pm I think) there is a 1 euro charge but this is far cheaper than using taxis to get into the town.
The town itself is around 1km away from the hotel but it is not advisable to walk because part of the route has no pavements and traffic does travel fast. But the courtesy bus runs every half hour.
The staff are extremely friendly, especially in the bar and restaurant. They seem only too happy to help in any way.
Rooms are cleaned daily and to a high standard.
We couldn't use the pool due to the weather so I can't comment on it.
We travelled with First Choice and went to their welcome meeting on the first morning. We found the excursions to be very expensive and we found we could so them so much cheaper ourselves. However, it is true that there are frequent public transport strikes which can make it difficult to get to some of the sights such as Pompeii and Herculaneum. So if you don't want hassle it is best to go on an organised trip.
I have never returned to the same hotel before as I like to go to different places and see as much of the world as I can. However, I was so impressed with the hotel that i think I will definitely return.
