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.

Very nice and so much fun!

Stayed in 1Br Topaz Suite in the Reef Tower 3/16-3/20. We were a party of 2adt/2 teen girls and room had plenty of space for us all. The views were absolutely spectacular. The staff was so nice and super friendly. The room in general was clean but it could have been a tad cleaner. We arrived to a dirty balcony with trash and previous occupants dirty underwear. Floors could have been swept better. The drain in master bathroom shower did not drain well and to me that is just yuk. I will say the staff does work hard....but when we pay nearly 6k for 4 nights, I'd like to expect little things to be a little better. We rented a cabana at Mayan Temple Pool and it was excellent. Also rented a cabana at Bath Collanade Pool and it was great too! Highly recommend renting a cabana....worth the money! Pools close a little early. Lots to choose from for food. Marina area is great at night for entertainment and restaurants. Will definitely return!

Do it as part of a cruise

We stayed at the Reef during low season in February as a couple. Our room was nice and had a wrap-around balcony with great views. The lobby in the building was very loud with plenty of kids around. There are lots of day visitors from the cruise ships on the resort, so expect long lines everywhere. The atmosphere at Atlantis is like a mix between a large water park, and Las Vegas casino. The Mosaic buffet was very good, but like everything else way overpriced. The Poseidon's Table was about the worst buffet we've ever had (we would pick the food at a Golden Coral over that place). Snorkeling the ruins of Atlantis was great, but there is no other decent snorkeling around Paradise Island. We chartered a private boat that took us to Green Cay, and Rose Island where the snorkeling was excellent (lots of turtles, tropical fish, and beautiful coral). If you need groceries, souvenirs, wine, or spirits, take the shuttle to the Coral Towers. Down the hill is the Paradise Shopping Village on the left, across the street from the Marina Village. Having traveled all over the Caribbean over a dozen times, we would only recommend staying at Atlantis to people with kids and way too much money. If you have to experience Atlantis, we would recommend doing it as a day visitor as part of a cruise.

We recently stayed at the Reef in Atlantis. We had a studio apartment facing the sea. I will start with the pros: 1. Very well maintained property: Very clean. Elevators are well maintained. Our room was nicely kept. 2. Professional Staff: Front desk and concierge staff was very helpful. They tried to address all our queries professionally. Housekeeping service was also very nice. 3. Communication: Good transportation service to/from other properties at the Atlantis. Now the cons: 1. Very expensive: Hotel's per night charge and fee covers minimal services. You have to pay for almost everything. 2. Breakfast selection: The hotel had an option for purchasing breakfast which includes some basic options including muffins, bagels, fruits, and coffee. The price was much higher than you would expect. A muffin, fruit box, and coffee costed my almost $20. 3. No recycling option: The hotel didn't have any recycling bins in the room or in the common areas. It's in an island. They should focus more on recycling all the plastic and paper waste. In general, the property was better than the Coral, Royal, and Beach tower living conditions.

Beach Day Pass

My wife and I took our grandkids on a cruise to the Bahamas. While in Nassau we arranged for a Beach Day Pass from the Atlantis Resort. It was much cheaper than any of the ships packages. We had access to their beautiful beach at the ocean, a large pool, several restaurants and the casino. By far the best stop on the trip.All of the Atlantis facilities are outstanding. The grandkids has an amazing day.

Gorgeous. Truly paradise

This place is as beautiful as the pictures. The rooms are super nice and large It is a great place for families of all ages. The beach is quiet, crystal clear and amazing. The amenities are wonderful with multiple pools, water slides for everyone like at a water park you would pay for and a rapid river and lazy river that goes for a very long ride. Plenty of restaurants and shopping for everyone. Excursions are available too. It was paradise. Stay on a higher floor. The view is breathtaking. Highly recommend
