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.

Great for families that want more privacy from water park

We visited Atlantis for first time on Dec 31st thru January 5th and stayed in the Reef. The benefit of the Reef is that it has a very nice private pool away from the excitement and foot traffic of the water park. The hotel was nice, but with limited restaurant and room service options. It's only a short walk to some of the other properties, but good to keep in mind if visiting. The shuttles were regular and easy and offered rides to all properties including the harbor shopping and restaurant area. The restaurants were plentiful and very high quality offerings (Nobu, Fish, Chopsticks, etc) Highly recommend spending the $$ for cabanas when using the waterpark area. We plan to visit again.

Great for kids, but the property and service are in need of drastic improvement

The property is clearly great for kids. However on this stay, it was obvious that the level of service and cleanliness had changed since our last stay in 2017. Upon checkin, we realized that our room was filthy.. bathroom was not cleaned, there were no sheets, blankets or pillows for the second bed and the refrigerator was full of trash and a container of ice cream that had melted everywhere. The food offerings are not that good, only fast food items are available for lunch anywhere. The other big issue is the room charge situation. Please make sure to review your bill! Prior to checkout I noticed a 200 charge from the spa that none of us had done. It took them multiple days to remove the charge and no one seemed to care or be able to explain how it got there, given no one else had our room key. Overall, it did not measure up to the last trip there and I was left feeling extremely disappointed. For the amount they charge there for everything, the service levels should be 5 star. I won’t go back for a long time

Worst trip worst service

This is the first time I’m writing a review online. Over the holidays my family visited the Reef at Atlantis. During our stay a Dasani water bottle filled with a clear cleaning detergent of some sort was left by accident by a cleaning woman in our suite. My son rightfully thinking it was water tried to drink it . Thankfully the second it touched his tongue before it went down his throat he had the sense to run to the bathroom and rinse out his mouth. But the cleaning detergent nonetheless burned his tongue. The cleaning lady who was nice and made a mistake apologized. And we got one or two calls from the lobby to make sure our son was ok. Mistakes do happen, but I’m writing today because I tried to send a letter to both Marriott Autograph Collection and Brookfield Asset Management that owns Atlantis but could not get through to anyone. Both receptionists were not helpful at all and kept me on hold for over ten minutes. One connected me to a number that was out of service. I wanted to file an official complaint to make sure that this never happens again. In addition we spent thousands of dollars for a week at the Reef not including flights and the service was horrendous for the high price point and downright belligerent at times. This hotel is not worth the money at all.

Beautiful hotel, worth every penny !

I travelled in August 2018 for 10 days with my family. We rented a one bedroom condo with ocean view. It was fantastic ! The view is amazing and the condo was just perfect. The location is great too since you are walking distance from the water park. It is further from the restaurants though, but there are shuttles, which, sometimes, can have people waiting in lines. We walked most of the times to go out for dinner. We also asked our cab driver to stop at the grocery store on our way to the resort since the condo have a fully equipped kitchen. Don't buy coffee since there is Starbucks coffee pods everyday. They also provide water on a daily basis. There are washers and dryers available on the second floor which I used a few times. The grounds are also very beautiful. The beach and pool area is reserved for people staying at the Cove or the Reef. There's always chairs at the pool or the beach. I will go back again in a heartbeat.

WORST, OVERPIRCED HOTEL ANYWHERE IN THE WOrLD THAT WE HAVE STAYED IN. great landscaping, friendly staff everywhere. Yes, food is overpriced. BUT, hotel itself is poorly run by management.I was helped as much as possible by day Mgr. Theresa, and Ms. Z and Stevette at the concierge desk. Those 3 were nice but could only do so much. 1. Forget about being a Premium Platinum Elite with Marriott- THERE ARE NO PERKS FOR THAT! Our room overlooked the air conditioning units and the parked truck containers. 2. 2 hour wait for stopped up toilet ( 2 times), 3. no hot water for showers for 3 of the 4 days- were told too many people checked in and used all the hot water. After repeated complaints by myself and others, I did get a $300 compensation for each 2 days. 4. when my husband went to get his activity bracelet, it took 45 minutes because they could not find him listed in the room although the reservation was in his name. He even showed the reservation on his phone but they had to go check. crazy. 5. room service trays left in the hallways all day and evening. I have been in other " Autograph" Marriots and have had wonderful experiences. The waterparks were fine.
