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.

Beautiful but Pricey

To celebrate my birthday and our anniversary we decided to stay at Atlantis for the week. We stayed at the Reef. The property was beautiful. The room was very nice too. It had all the amenities you would need. Our room was not ready when we arrived but they were able to find us a room immediately with a view of the ocean. The staff was very accommodating. Very impressed by one of the ladies who worked at the front desk whose name I can’t remember but she would address us by name every time she saw us. Now that is impressive. There is a shuttle that will take you all around the resort. If you are not sure which shuttle you need the staff is always helpful to get you on the right one. There is plenty of things to do at the resort so if you get bored it is your own fault. We were glad that we brought snacks, breakfast food and some dinner items with us. The prices for food is extremely high. Lunch items are fairly priced. Water can cost you up to $11.00. Overall I am glad we got to experience the Atlantis Resort. It had one of the most beautiful views I have ever seen. We were there as they were preparing for the hurricane. As we were talking to one of the front desk staff we learned what it is like to live through a hurricane on the island. She was telling us there was one occasion that they had no power for one month on the island and how it was to deal with it. She said you take it one day at a time. Here all the staff were coming to work, smiles on their faces, and meeting our needs knowing they needed to start preparing their own homes for safety. I think that bothered me the most.

We had a one bedroom suite with an Ocean view and views of Atlantis. It has a completely equipped kitchen, a dining table, counter dining, a refrigerator, stove top, microwave, toaster, Keurig coffee maker (housekeeping supplies the coffee pods daily) dishwasher, all glasses, dishes, cutlery, and pots (if you desire to cook yourself, but why bother). We went to a market across from Marina Village and purchased breakfast items. You can also purchase food items in the convenience store in the lobby of the hotel. There is a fitness center and washer/dryer room on the 2nd floor. The bathroom is huge with a jet tub, glass shower make-up table, and separate commode room. The living room/kitchen/dining room is spacious with a sleeper sofa and chairs. The bedroom has a king bed and ample closet space, The beach and pool are not crowded (only for guests of the Reef and Cove) and have comfortable loungers and plenty of towels. There is also food and drink service around the pool and beach. You can walk under a covered walkway that goes from the Reef to the Cove building. You can also take the shuttle bus between all of the buildings in Atlantis. A Starbucks is located just off of the lobby. Keep in mind that there is an additional Room Revenue/resort fee charge of $53.70 a day in addition to the room price paid. I was told that this covers the water park, housekeeping, and other gratuities.

We had an amazing stay. We had a one bedroom suite that had a full kitchen and a sofa pull out. The room is very large and could accommodate a family of 4 easily. We bought groceries at their SuperValue grocery store. The prices are equivalent to Whole Foods. The airlines is either bahama air or JetBlue. The trip is 1.5 hrs from Fortlauderdale airport. Paradise Beach is very tranquil. The water is clear blue with fish swimming nearby. The cove beach near the cove resort next door is busier and more of the party type scene. The trip is a splurge and can be very expensive but worth the splurge. There is an additional charge for resort fee $50 for two people daily and $36 gratuity fee daily for two. The resort fee allows access to the gym for two people per room per day. The customer service is not the best or the friendliest but the resort compensated for it.

Fun Times at Superb Reef at Atlantis

We had a great time on our 5 nights visit to the Bahamas, staying at the Reef - which is the quiet part of Atlantis. We had a very nice 1 bedroom, harbor facing room on 10th floor. With three of us, it was nice to have the extra full bathroom. The fully equipped kitchen is great, except we didn't use it -- no time and grocery shopping is easier in Manhattan than on Paradise Island. For us, harbor facing was the way to go -- the cruise ships, MailBoats, etc offering entertainment. Clean, well maintained property. We did try many of the pools, slides, both beaches and the Rapid River which is really cool. The casino was fun too (nearly broke even on top). Food and drinks are pricey, but we enjoyed breakfast buffet at the Cove, and also quick snack at Starbucks; dinner at Bahamenian Club, Bimini Road, late evening snacks at Sea Glass, etc. A bit touristy, but the Friday night Junkanoo (carnival) with a buffet was really fun too, especially as it is next to the fish tank, the Dig. Both the Dig and the Predators large fish tanks (Dig is the world's largest, I'm told) are awesome. The staff is mostly friendly, with one or two being a bit mechanical in their approach. We walked a lot and also took the 10 min. frequency shuttle. We spent one day at Sandy Toes, with 20-30 boat ride to get to their island area -- well worth it. Also worth doing in Nassau Fort Fincastle and Queen's staircase, Straw Market (vendors aren't overly pushy and price negotiations are reasonable). We really enjoyed a dinner at the Fish Fry and lunch at Poop Deck, both in Nassau. Net, the Reef is very enjoyable, with spacious rooms, great views, good staff. A true getaway.
