Upon arrival at the hotel/apartment, we were very excited to find out, if the place was as nice as the pictures. The reality completely lived up to the pictures: super lovely, where much focus was given to the decoration; i.e. flowers, crocks, cushions.... etc.
The apartment was also spacious, when you take into account, that you don't spend that much time indoor. Only downside to the apartment was, that the kitchen wasn't very well-equipped. There were no coffee maker/cafetiere or electric kettle, so we had to buy instant coffee and boil the water in a pot - a bit difficult. There were no bowls/dishes, so everything had to be served in portions at lunch and dinner - again a bit difficult. Neither were there any dish brush/sponge or liquid soap.
We didn't book breakfast/lunch or dinner from home, so when we chose to eat at the restaurant in the evening, we couldn't get a table until 9. A bit late, but okay since our children aren't small anymore.
The staff is super friendly and very accommodating, and that goes for everyone from the cleaning staff, waiters, bartender and receptionists.
Pompeii is impressing - must see.
The restaurant Tre Olivi, which is located in a 5 star hotel Savoy Beach Hotel (found via trip advisor), is absolutely worth a visit, and isn't far away from Oleandri Resort. We ordered 2 aperitifs, 3 starters, 4 main courses and 2 desserts as well as 1 coffee and 3 waters. But besides that, they served bread, bread snacks, small canapes, a small pre-starter as well as a pre-dessert. It wasn't something we payed extra for. All the food was very delicious and presentable. For all that we only payed 202 euro, which, I am convinced, is about half price, of what we would pay in Denmark. The service was first class, we could speak both English and French with the waiters.
The Agropoli castle wasn't worth the trip, but Castellabate medieval town was.
