Great place to stay but lacks entertainment in the evenings.
Jul 04 2018
The was no entertainment in the evenings. You could walk to the Harbor, but to do that every night gets old. A couple of nights the was a small band playing at the harbor but no seating, just a couple of benches. You resort to going to the casino and spending more money. The 15% gratuity and an additional 7% VAT tax adds a lot to every meal/drink/ burger etc. For a family of 4 we ended up spending an additional $4000.00 in meals , food and drinks and we drank very little alcohol during our stay.

The hotel itself is beautiful. The staff however lacks many things to be desired. If it was not the front desk or bell man every person at the hotel looked at me like I was bothering them when I asked for ANYTHING. From towels to drinks to food, the staff was rude. I'm not used to this treatment, especially from a hotel that is rated so highly. I've stayed all over the world, many of the sandals resorts, Thailand, Japan, Iceland, and this was by far the worst service that I've ever recieved at any place I've traveled to. I would not recommend Atlantis to anyone, with family or not, as a vacation spot.

Wow, this place was beautiful. We originally booked the Coral, but I asked for an eStandy upgrade which we were granted upon arrival. We were upgraded to a 1 bedroom Harbour Suite at the Reef which was worth the extra money. Please see picture from the balcony, I’d say that was a Better view than just the harbour. The room was huge with 2 bathrooms and a full kitchen . The overall feel was high end and very relaxed.. There were 5 of us total, my 4yo, 7yo, 14 yo niece, hubby and myself. More than enough space for us all. Note, this wouldn’t have been possible if my daughter was 5 due to fire code. The private beach in this area is absolutely beautiful with tons of available chairs with built in shades. I’m a beach snob and this was absolutely beautiful. It was a also a pretty easy walk to aqua adventure which my son loved and never wanted to leave. Pros: beautiful private beach, easy access to Aquadventure, quieter area of the resort, full kitchen in suite, overall luxurious feel, continuous shuttle that was super easy for transport around the resort Cons: Uber expensive, didn’t honor our credits properly (but front desk fixed it quickly), a little out of the action Tips: bring your snorkel and swim in the lagoon for free. Tons and tons of fish.

Excellent welcome service

This place is a dream. It doesn’t disappoint. The rooms are worth the money and are comfortable; feels like home away from home. I was blown away with the level of professionalism and service I received staying here . First class all the way. The staff here (on the entire property) was more than accommodating. I got more than I expected staying here. I was more than happy when I left. I am still blown away. This is a must stay. I read the bad reviews to prepare myself before getting here to give me a balance of what to expect; and my experience DID NOT reflect or come close to those experiences and my expectations were mixed but they exceeded my expectations. I more than recommend the Reef and the staff at the Atlantis for your stay in Nassau. Thank you Atlantis-Reef I will be back :)

Looking forward to a return visit

We had a great time at Atlantis and highly recommend it to anyone looking for a relaxing vacation in the Bahamas. We stayed at the Reef, which is away from a lot of the hustle of Atlantis, and shares a private beach and pool with The Cove. Our room was a studio suite on the 19th floor with an amazing view of the beach and ocean. Our year old daughter was with us and it was great to have a mini-kitchen in the room for all of our needs. Housekeeping was very attentive and the room was always clean and ready for us. The pool was quiet and relaxing. Even though we were there during a busy holiday week, we never had a problem getting a chair by the pool or on the beach. YES – Atlantis is expensive as most resorts are. It doesn’t help that the government increased the VAT from 7.5% to 12% on July 1. The locals are upset about that too. You can cut costs by making smart spending decisions, but honestly you are going to spend a lot of money whether it’s at Atlantis or any other resort in the Bahamas. My only complaint is that the resort is so large that it can be a bit intimidating. The front desk also said they didn’t have any maps at check in. And despite having looked at maps online, it would have been helpful to be given some idea of where things were and how to get around. We should have explored more and would have realized how close some of the shops by the Royal actually are. Considering we will definitely return to Atlantis, I am sure we will venture further out next time.

Loved the Reef but the Atlantis needs an orientation

The Reef was beautiful and much quieter than the rest of the resort. We stayed in the Topaz Suite. If you are wondering if it is worth the money, it is! The Topaz suite had the most spectacular views. Huge balcony you could enter off the family room or bedroom. The wall of windows at the foot of the bed was incredible to wake up and see. Lots of storage, amenities and plenty of space. We ate a couple of meals at the Atlantis. Very pricey but very good. We stocked up on waters, juices and sodas on our way there as well as breakfast items and that helped. The beach there is gorgeous and seemed to have more fish than other beaches we visited. It made for some fun snorkeling. Where I feel the Reef or Atlantis could imporve is to offer some sort of tour or orientation once you arrive. It could be optional but everyday as we explored we found new places or things we wished we had known about sooner.
