- What's Included
We stayed at Atlantis as a family of 4 with 2 children aged 1.5 and 4 years old. We were booked to stay at the Cove but we arrived 2 days after hurricane Matthew and the Cove was closed due to damage. We were initially offered a standard room with 2 queen beds but were then upgraded to a 1 bedroom suite (room 10-908) for no extra charge. It was incredible. It had a fully equipped kitchen with fridge, dishwasher, plates, cups, pots, pans, washing machine, tumble dryer, 2 bathrooms, big living area with dining table and sofa bed and separate large bedroom with king bed, 3 televisions etc. The best part was the double sized terrace with views of the sea and the whole Atlantis area. We didn't choose a dining plan because we weren't sure if we would get the value from it but we would probably opt for a plan next time. We enjoyed all the restaurants that we tried. There was something for everyone.We didn't leave the resort during our 6 day stay because there was so much to do. We did the shallow water dolphin experience, visited the various aquariums numerous times as well as Aquaventure water park, Mandara Spa and the feeding of stingrays, tortoises and eels. All the staff were very friendly and helpful and happy to help with any questions. The only staff that didn't seem so friendly were those at Mosaic breakfast buffet in the morning. Once we were seated we didn't seem to have a server for the whole time and struggled to get coffee, small spoons for the kids etc. We ate there twice and it was the same on both occasions. The great food and omelette ladies made up for the lack of service and smiles though.We much preferred Atlantis Bahamas to Atlantis Dubai (visited in Feb 16) and will definitely return to the resort next year.I would recommend the Cove or the Reef to couples or families who want to avoid the hectic, somewhat package tour environment of Royal, Coral and Beach Towers. We loved returning to the serenity of the Reef/Cove area each day after the mayhem of the other hotels. You'll have a higher class more enjoyable vacation if you book Reef or Cove.
This place was top notch! I'm definitely staying here again. They were all nice, attentive and made us feel like family. The hotel and grounds were so clean and they had just been through a hurricane the week before. Absolutely amazing!!!
Travel Agents get 30% off. We stayed at the Reef Tower and had a cruise port view. Our room was spacious and perfect. We had a kitchenette with everything you need to cook with including a microwave. It's cheaper to go to Starbucks on property for sandwiches and snacks.
Atlantis is a difficult place to review. The Reef is a beautiful tower - the rooms are large and very comfortable. Some signs of decay are beginning to show - everything works but stuff is chipped, bent or simply "not quite right". Their entertainment system is crap - only TV channels work well the rest crashes all the time. Wi Fi is very good. The beach and pool at the Reef are fantastic, really nice. The water park is also awesome and the various fish tanks are out of this world. The big issue we had was with food - specifically its prices and value for money. There are some really top notch places to eat at Atlantis. We didn't have a single bad meal or even dish in the 4 days we stayed there. But the pricing is exorbitant. A dinner for three at Olives was $360 with a mediocre bottle of wine that cost a fortune. You don't want to know what a dinner for 9 at 77 West cost. Even a dinner at VIrgil's which is just a BBQ place was outrageous. And there are no easy options outside of the resort (unless you are happy with McDonalds or similar). Also on the Saturday we walked around for 1.5 hours hopping between restaurants looking for somewhere to eat. Most restaurants in Atlantis were closed or had over an hour wait (it was large number of closed restaurants). Net - if you have kids and if you can afford it Atlantis is something you must do at least once in your life. If you are looking for a romantic getaway go to the Riviera Maya in Mexico. Better hotels and much cheaper.
Was scheduled to be staying in the reef for a week - but hurricane Matthew made a great presence- at the reef we had a 2 bedroom ocean view suite on the 14th floor and it was spectacular.. for a few days -- due to the hurricane we had to evacuate and move into the royal towers - we rode the hurricane out in our evacuation room at the convention center and were fed like royalty- we stayed a few days after the hurricane and couldn't get back to the reef - bummer but Atlantis was very accommodating and the staff there deserves to be acknowledged- will have to plan a trip back not in hurricane season Here's some before and after pics
