    Don’t listen to the bad reviews!!!

    This place is wonderful! We are here for the last day of our trip and we couldn’t be happier. We had an 8 night stay and have nothing but good things to say. I was SO SKEPTICAL after reading previous reviews. People who complain must be super picky and hard to please. The resort staff have all been super, super friendly. The food is much better than a lot of other resorts we've stayed in. The restaurants don’t take reservations which a lot of people complained about, but you know that going is what it is. We got to the steak house at 6:00 and doors open at 6:30, we got right in no problem. You could also wait in line to reserve a spot for later. We ate at the buffet every other time and had plenty to choose from. The jerk chicken outside by the pool and it was great. We had no problem at all getting a drink. That was another complaint I had read. It was never for a second an issue. If you treat the staff kindly and respectfully they will do the same. We met a lot of great people. The room was very clean. If you want to have a low key time and a smaller resort this is a great place. Don’t listen to the negative reviews!!!

    Great stay!

    Great hotel and staff was awesome! Food was A+! Only complaint was the beach umbrellas need to be updated —many broken umbrellas and some that don’t provide any shade—-also some days not wnough umbrellas for all guests! For the price we paid the umbrellas should be upgraded!

    Bahamas birthday bash!

    Took my mom here for her 60th birthday...we cannot say enough good things! Everything far exceeded our expectations. It was the cleanest property I’ve ever stayed at...people were constantly wiping things down and cleaning up. The staff was so kind and friendly. The food was delicious at both the specialty restaurants and the Buffett. (The breakfast Buffett was my favorite!) We stayed in room 1123, having a great view of the pool area as well as the beautiful beach. The water was crystal and so warm. Neither the pool or beach was every too crowded, you could always get a seat. For adults only, it was incredibly relaxing and fun without getting too rowdy or seeing people push any limits. It’s literally a 60 second walk to the Atlantis where you can walk the property and use the casino. We also Wales through the Atlantis to go to Margaritaville and walk through the little shopping area, which felt incredibly safe! Luckily we had fantastic weather with just 2 rain showers in 5 days. We will definitely go back!

    July Break in the Bahamas

    Better than we expected. Not as hot there in mid July. Nice breeze all the time. Staff was exceptional and the resort was very clean. Fantastic location. .Right on the water with a huge pool and plenty of places to lay down and relax. Buffets were expansive and the speciality restaurants offered a variety of good food and excellent service. Only complaint I have is the music by the pool was way too loud.

    Great getaway!

    We had a great 4 day getaway with great flight times. We were greeted in the lobby with champagne, and even though it was before noon, our rooms were ready. We enjoyed the pool, beach and buffet. We did not eat at any of the restaurants as we had no desire to line up at 6 pm. The resort is very clean and we found everyone to be friendly. The proximity to the Atlantis is a bonus as we went to casino, the marina and enjoyed dinner there one night. We will be back!
