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.

This was our first time to stay at Atlantis. We had been through the Atlantis while visiting while on a cruise ship. My hubby chose an oceanfront room in The Reef. It was simply beautiful. Our room was on the 11th floor and overlooked the pool and beach area. The kitchenette area had everything you could need to make food and there was a shop downstairs that had many grocery items if you needed to try and save a few $ as food is very expensive. The room was quite and the bed was very comfortable. The shuttles run constantly and the longest we waited was 4 or 5 minutes. It was nice to be a bit removed from the hustle & bustle of the main tower. Food is fine, nothing special, prices are high for the quality. Great trip, we will go back.

We loved the Reef at Atlantis!

Pristine, tropical grounds, gorgeous hotel, attentive staff, and my favorite: one of the best beaches that I've been to! Clear, calm water so I could see my toes in water up to my neck! We enjoyed the Dolphin Encounter & eating local food at the "Fish Fry' area.

A great family visit

Finding the right place for the right price at the right time can sometimes be very difficult and as more you compare as more you are able to question. So we decided to book and stay at The Reef at Atlantis and not somewhere else which would have been either cheaper but further away or more expensive and therefore....? Not sure! Reading the reviews: “You only have a Starbucks at The Reef”....etc. not sure where your priorities are but let me tell you: We arrived via car and the Valet Parking Team was extremely friendly and helpful. Compare to other Valet services, Atlantis isn’t the leader of the hotels here in the Bahamas, other do charge more. We arrived early in the morning, well at least far before check in time and did not expect to have the room ready BUT we were lucky and the lady checking us in was happy to have a room available for us. She explained everything to us which seemed important and was able to answer all questions we asked. Very polite, friendly and very welcoming. We declined the offered upgrade and went upstairs to our room which was spacious, clean and felt friendly and warm. The bathroom is pretty big and has everything you could ask for. The room comes with a small kitchen counter, stove, fridge and is fully equipped with plates, cups and everything you need to make meals in the room, IF you would like to. The view was great, with some ocean, pool and garden, the bridge over to Nassau and the rest of Atlantis. Yes, The Reef has only Starbucks within and a small convenience store BUT, believe it or not, you can walk to a various other options within 5 to 10 minutes where you can choose from all kind of cuisines and food styles, so no need to panic. Pools are everywhere, beaches are everywhere, shuttles busses are everywhere, so The Reef is actually not inconvenient at all, actually quiet the opposite. It seems much more quiet here and not over crowed, yet you got all the amenities around you. The water park, the aquarium and everything else is in walking distance and even with a three year old one not problem at all. Both of our kids enjoyed every little second. No matter where we went, there is so much to see and to do that you don’t have to be worried that someone isn’t going to be tired at the end of the day. And in case you really want to leave property while you are staying here, you can still walk to other restaurant quiet easy. So, yes, you can find less expensive option and of course more expensive options but we enjoyed our time at The Reef and would book here straight away again, should we come back to Atlantis and Paradise Island.

Great family holiday

Love the Atlantis resort normally stay at the cove but I have teenage kids that don’t get up for breakfast so figured self catering was the way to go now had a lovely room had all you need microwave hob fridge dishwasher plenty of room, the only disappointment was the crap view from our room had a terrace view that looked over a flat roof on the front drive with a very limited sea view for what it cost For the 14 days I would of expected better. The resort itself is great for kids young and old plenty of things to do in the day and lots of restaurants to eat from in the evening most are expensive so you need plenty of money, there are a few cheaper options but not many. I would recommend the resort but I think I will be staying at the cove again when we return for that little bit extra it’s definitely the better one of the two.

Our room was perfect, front desk was professional and the food was great. My partner and I came here for my birthday. We did the river ride and enjoyed that so we did it twice. We were looking for the ride that you slide down on and see the sharks in the tank but end up at a ride called the Abyss. I was not interested in doing this one bit! We were using a double float so I decided to go on the back but the guy in charge insist that I go in front for weight balance. I didn’t understand it because I am 130lbs and my partner is 194lbs. I felt he knew what he was talking about so we switched positions. Worse decision ever. I always have that gut feeling!!!! Now my partner has been in and out of the hospital for TBI!!!!!! He hit his head so hard only about a second into the ride going down that hump at the beginning of the slide. I keep telling myself if I had insisted on being in the back of the float his head would have landed in my lap!!! This has been a really tough time for us as we have just started our life together!!!!! One thing I would like to say is TRAIN YOUR STAFF!!!!! My partner has post concussion syndrome!!!! Google if you don’t know the meaning!!! Be careful and question everything those guys tell you.
