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.

My husband is a country mouse and hates bigs crowds, long lines and carnival rides so therefore, my kids have not been to you the classic big names in "parks". He and my kids LOVED our time at Atlantis and I would stay at the Reef again for sure. My 8 and 10 year old could experience some autonomy riding slides if we wanted to lounge at the quiet pool. The Reef area was low key just like we like it. The food and drinks were pricey and we did not do the meal plan but we knew that would be the case going into the trip. I believe we may have arrived just after all the spring breakers were done which was a good time to travel if you're not into the crowds either but there were still LOTS of people around. We never left the resort during our 5 day stay which made for a super fun but also super relaxing vacation for mom and dad.

Enjoyable stay

It’s on the far end of the complex so it’s a lot of walking to and from the water park. But we were fine with it as: 1) shuttle buses run constantly, 2) the Reef/Cove side are far more private and peaceful. The beach chairs are comfortable with sun shades on this side and the beach is hands down the best. The Royal area is a zoo and the chairs are terrible. 3) We had a 2bedroom and it was spacious and comfortable le. However, the room needs upgrading. Couches are super soft and worn. A handle was hanging off a dresser, the stove took forever to get hot, and a light cap fell off. Cleaning every day was nice but it’s the details. One day we were out of paper towels and they didn’t restock. Another time it was dish detergent, lotion, always something every day. It was fine when we called to ask for it and they delivered it. The annoyances were small and our stay was great regardless but for the amount you pay, it is surprising they haven’t found away to provide true upscale service. 4) Everyone but one person during our week stay was friendly and pleasant. 5) Other reviews scared me on food prices but if you live in NYC, it was about the same. The concession stands for lunch were cheap $10 and were delicious! Great burgers, burritos, etc. I wish they stayed opened for dinner. Dinner we only ate at Fish and Mosaic in the Cove and felt both were great quality. Yes expensive but high end. We looked at Poseidens Table and didn’t eat there as it looks like Old Country Buffet (again evidencing the experience at the Cove and Reef is different than the Royal). Having a kitchen to cook in at the Reef was amazing. Overall, some of the harsh reviews are unwarranted in my opinion. You are spending a lot to be there but think of it as a Disneyworld experience. I’d stay at the Reef again bc we cooked a good amount but if I was coming without kids, I’d stay at the Cove. The Royal is a madhouse and smells like a dark dirty casino. We had a lovely time and will return.

I took my family to Atlantis on a vacation. We are staying at the Reef. Paying $1400 a night for a suite.The air conditioner stopped working 2 times. The first we had to get maintenance at 2:30 AM . Woke up our entire family waiting for it to be fixed. The next afternoon it stopped again and I watched as it was being fixed. The air filters looked like they were never changed ever!!!! My wife had been coughing and sneezing for 2 days!!I went down to the main Reef office the next day and met with Mr Miguel Christie who said he would look into the matter. It was quite obvious when I brought in the dirty air filter to him he knew there was a problem . I told him I was taking the air filter to Marriot headquarters and he told me it belonged to the Atlantis. Obviously he was trying to find a way to cover this up! He said I could take a picture of it but a picture would not show how terrible it looked. Unbreathable.He tried to prevent me from taking the evidence but I left quickly. DO NOT ACCEPT A ROOM AT THE ATLANTIS UNTIL YOU HAVE AIR FILTERS CHANGED IN YOUR ROOM and do not assume MR Miguel Christie is there to help you

We love the Reef-wouldnt stay anywhere else

We love Atlantis! We stayed at the Reef. Everything was clean and the staff was friendly and helpful. We may be biased, but we think we had the best pool, beach, and hotel. The pool was never too crowded. The beach chairs came with cushions and the waves were never too big. Our hotel room came with a kitchenette area that probably saved us hundreds of dollars- eating out here is very expensive. With a kitchenette, you can bring food from home or bring your leftovers back to enjoy later. I will say the kitchenette was small and not greatly stocked with kitchen equipment-it worked for my husband and I, but might be too small to prepare meals for a whole family (Unless you do something easy like sandwiches for lunch or cereal for breakfast then splurge for dinner). We took the buses to dinner a few nights to some of the further restaurants. The buses came frequently and always had plenty of room. You will do a lot of walking (not great for small children) but it’s so worth it. We walked over to the Baths Colonnade pool almost everyday. We would ride the lazy river from there over to the Mayan Tower slides and Power Tower slides. Lines for the rides were never long and we always could find available chairs by any pool. Every pool had a bar and towel station, which was so nice. Atlantis fit our needs perfectly. I can sit on the beach all day, but my husband likes to be active and do things. You will not be bored here. Come to relax and know that you are going to spend money here, but it’ll be well worth it.

We have been to the Atlantis 11 times and we always stay at the Reef or Cove and have always loved it but I feel like it is starting to run down a little especially when Marriott took over. They use to do upgrades real easy and now its more difficult to get one. We still love going but they need to start updating for what you pay.
