This is our second time staying at the Comfort Inn Suites. We arrived on Saturday Sept 29, 2012 at 12:30ish. I asked if we were able to check in early and they accommodated us at no extra charge! So refreshing to be able to get off the plane, check in early and get ready for our vacation!! Our room was clean and presentable, we've stayed at the Atlantis before and find the rooms quite comparable, so when you’re able to save money and you don't mind a quick walk staying at the Comfort Inn is completely worth it. You receive a hot continental breakfast (scrambled eggs, bacon/sausage and then your usual yogurt, fruits, juices, bagels/toast, waffles, etc.), something Atlantis does not do, and at check in they ask you if you would like to be able to charge back purchases from Atlantis back to your room. I highly suggest this! They do put a temporary hold on a credit card initially, but it is nice not having to carry cash on you at all times and still has the freedom of buying things (i.e. anything from the shops, food, drinks, etc.).
We found Atlantis to be great and not over crowded from cruise ships. We were able to sit in the same spot at the aqua-adventure for the 4 days we were there. My husband enjoyed all the slides and the water ride with rapids, wave pool and current was just like we remembered.
Service: you are on vacation!! So slow down and relax. Yes service is not the quickest, but when it comes it is very pleasant, accommodating and quite charming.
Food: yes something’s are more expensive, but again you are on vacation. Next to the Comfort Inn is a little like strip mall with a few shops, and they've recently added a Dunkin Donuts! My husband stated the coffee was only .40 cents more than in the US. Anthony's Diner which is next to dunkin, is a great place with great food at a reasonable price. The last night was our anniversary so we went to Seafire at the Atlantis Marina, food was amazing and upscale which reflected in the prices, however it was a special occasion so we did not mind, most restaurants have the menu posted outside so if price is weighing decision you are able to look at the prices and menu before being seated. We also enjoy the buffet located inside Atlantis great variety roughly $50 per adult includes soft drinks.
My one suggested "do not" is pay for majestic or any other pre-paid shuttle ride to and from the airport. I hear over and over again that they are not clean and people are not satisfied with their experience. Taking a taxi to and from the airport to Comfort Inn suites is roughly $35 each way and generally the taxis are very clean.
We stayed from Saturday Sept 29, 2012 through Oct. 3, 2012
Hope this helps and enjoy your stay!! =) We can't wait to go back!!!
