“Stay at Atlantis for less than half”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013 via mobile

This hotel is a little known 'cheat' for staying at Atlantis. For a fraction of Atlantis' cost this hotel includes breakfast, Internet access and access to ALL of Atlantis' attractions. You can spend all day splashing, sliding and eating at Atlantis without the tacky 'Vegas-esq' aspects of their resort. Service is great. Access to Arlantis is literally across the street.

Traveled 4/28/2013 thru 5/3/2013 Wife and I, in our 60’s.
The hotel was perfect...I read about 100 of the trip reports on Comfort Suites which helped me figure out where I wanted to stay. 1st floor west side facing the pool area, which was a few yards away and nicely camouflaged from direct view. There was a table with four chairs just outside our door and a gazebo a few steps away. At this time of year, there were mostly families with non-school-age children. Our room was very quiet and, in fact, we had no noise in the hotel or from the pool area...since the bar shuts down by 8pm. Breakfast was the same everyday but there is enough variety that you do not have to eat the same thing every day.
The weather was terrific, especially after dark. Weather report predicted rain sometimes as high as 70% but I kept asking the locals; they said don’t worry it won’t last long and may not happen anyway…which was right on. This was weather.com for Nassau…the storms would come to the Bahamas, look like they were going to Nassau, then split and move elsewhere.
The staff was GREAT...and I mean everyone...maids, grounds keepers, life guards, service people and, of course, the front desk personnel. The locals were friendly and helpful. WE stay at a lot of Comfort Suites in US and the Bahamians are extremely cordial.
Never had any problems of any kind at either Atlantis (water park or beaches) or Paradise Island itself. Got to the beach (Cove Beach and Paradise Beach) around 9 AM every day, would go to water park for rides, then back to beach…left all our stuff at the beach…no problems….no solicitors whatsoever. Those beaches had better water, with Paradise having some of the calmer water.
The shops across the street from hotel (and just a few steps from Anthony’s Restaurant) were good…the best prices seem to be at the Leather Store (don’t know why it’s called that…has souvenirs, etc.) Around the corner is a convenience store if you need more water, sun lotion, etc. My wife and I decided to walk over the bridge (very safe) to straw market in Nassau and back one day. It wasn’t bad…but, we like to walk. Met a lot of really nice shop keepers who went above and beyond to share their island environment. Straw Market was not that much fun since it is right where up to 5 cruise ships dock every day. Way too many people for us…but the shops before you get there are less crowded.
FOOD IS EXPENSIVE…just be ready for that. Lunch $30-$40, dinner $40-$80. Atlantis restaurants are even more. We ate at the marina restaurants, but mostly at Anthony’s (across the street from Comfort Suites)…their Havana Black Bean soup is great, pizza is good…in fact, everything we ate there was consistently good! You can and we did drink glasses of water on Paradise Island…BUT NOT IN Nassau...we drank bottled water and carried that with us to the beach. We bought nothing to eat or drink at Atlantis (just did not want to do the “free refill” cup deal). We brought what we needed in our carryon beach bag…bananas and oranges from breakfast, bottled water and, of course, alcoholic beverages (no glass, so the beer went into the empty water bottles…be sure and put the empties where the maid will not throw them away).
Here is what we did when we arrived…and it worked great. Upon getting in the taxi ($34 to hotel), ask the driver to take you to the same grocery store he goes to. There get your snacks and a case of pint drinking water ($15). Save the empty bottles of water for refill later from the gallon jugs you can buy in the stores near Anthony’s for $1.95. Next time, I will buy 8 pint bottles and a couple of gallons of water at the first grocery store (the taxi driver’s store).
Now if you do not drink alcohol, you can skip this paragraph. After the grocery, ask the driver to take you to the liquor store he goes to. All of these stores are off the beaten path in Nassau and by far the cheapest. The most popular beer is Sands and Kalik beer. I’m a Miller Lite person, so I found I liked Kalik (they have lite, regular, and strong (7%)...I liked regular). Buy what you think you would drink in the time you are there…you can get 3 beers for $5, and some stores will throw in a nice logo mug when you by 6 or more beers. Besides beer, we bought Stolys vodka for $15 for a 750ml. Off-island tobacco, beer and liquor are cheap. On the Island, you will pay $4.50 to $6.50 for the same bottle of beer. Drinks on the island will run $6-$12. I know it sounds like you show up at the hotel with a lot of stuff…more than luggage, but believe me they come out right away with a luggage carrier and load it all up for you. We like sugar-free mixes, so we brought our Lime Margarita Crystal Lite package mixes, (1/2 pkg. to a pint of water) and mixed our vodka with that. We would mix our drinks in the room, go out to the pool and visit with people.
We like the casino, but brought too much over dress for the place. 80% of the people wear shorts and nice tops. The clubs (Nubu, open only Thurs-Sat and I am sure it costs as well), Dragons cost $20 per person...and nobody was ever in there dancing, so we skipped the dancing…but really how many 60+ people do you see doing today’s music?
When you check in they give each person in your party a PINK card that is used to get your Atlantis wrist band for the day. 9-6 is the published time, but the beaches are open 24/7 and, believe it or not, are PUBLIC, but only Atlantis beaches require some kind of pass (the cruise ship people pay around $100 & $80 for children for a day pass to the full park) so for those who pay that price you will have cruise people at the park and the beaches. We always were one of the first people on the beach so we had our pick of canopied layout chairs. The water park chairs fill up around 11 AM at the various pools depending on your parties preference. There are a couple of really good pool choices for little kids. Now, Cabbage beach (by the RIU) gets the most cruise traffic because it is basically free. I’m sure Junkanoo gets some as well as Cable beach. WE did not go to any of those. There are a few places to snorkel on Cove beach and Paradise beach, but I was told not too many species of fish.
Every day you must go through the Casino to the first hotel lobby, then down the stairs to get your wrist band to have full access to water park and beaches. DON’T FORGET TO TAKE YOUR PINK CARDS! When you leave the park, leave through the Coral Hotel Lobby…it’s a shorter distance back to hotel and you don’t have to go through the casino.
Finally, in talking with so many locals, they recommended we try Eluthera or Exuma sometime as well. Less crowded and you can rent a house…which is what we would do with our 3 children and their families.
We had such a good time and will definitely repeat our trip to the Bahamas. We have been to Mexico, St. Kitts, Jamaica, US Virgin Islands, and Puerto Rico…and THIS place, hands down, was more to our liking…and the Bahamians are the BEST islanders to be with. We walked everywhere (day and night) and NEVER ONCE GAVE A SECOND THOUGHT AS TO OUR SAFETY…unlike everywhere else we have been
Hope this helps.

We stayed at the comfort suites from April 20th to April 30th, it was myself, my husband, my 2 year old and my mother. We had reserved 2 rooms side by side but when we got there they had put us on 2 different floors, they told us they would have it fixed the next day and as promised they did. The people there are very friendly and the hotel is very clean.One thing I really dislike about this hotel is that there are no balconies, for some this may not be of importance but for us it is, as my husband is a smoker and since our routine is always chilling on the balcony and having a glass of wine after the little one goes to bed. They do have rooms on the first floor that give you access to a walkway, we requested they put us in one of those rooms and they did. When I was booking my trip, I found the Comfort Suites and the Atlantis beach tower at almost the same price, we chose to stay at the Comfort Suites in hopes to save some money since it offered free breakfast, problem is what we did not know is that breakfast ends at 10:00am, we are late sleepers when we go on vacation so we would never make it in time.You do have full access to the Atlantis when you stay at the Comfort suites, however you need to walk all the way to the Royal towers front desk (about a 12 minute walk) in order for you to obtain your wristbands and you must do this every day, the walk is not really the issue, its the fact that the front desk is usually busy so you waste some time waiting in line to get your bracelet and all family members need to be present at the desk in order for them to get their wristbands, so the kids tend to get a little edgy while waiting. So my advice to you is if you find the Atlantis at almost the same price as the Comfort Suites then just book the Atlantis, especially if you are a late sleeper :-) or if you enjoy sitting on a balcony. If those things don't matter to you then go ahead and book, this hotel is clean, the staff is friendly and their pool is great for some quiet relaxation time. Also try and get the 2 double beds instead of the King bed with the pull out couch as the pull out is very uncomfortable. Enjoy your stay in paradise, we sure did :-)

I stayed at comfort suites on april 24 -28, cant complain about anything i saw.. The staff was very friendly, free breakfast, the rooms clean and to have access to the atlantis for free, cant beat that!
Only thing u might want to be prepare for is that they charge a housekeeping fee when u check in, i think was like $15-20
per person per day, so for us we paid like $175 for 2 people for the 5days.. besides that to save money go to the restaurant across the street n buy the loaded nachos for $10.. enough for two. i think the restaurant is called anthonys grill?? behind it there was a little store n we bought bread,mayo/ham n cheese and ate sandwiches when we was hungry!! lol but the atlantis has burger places to eat at just take cash they dnt accept cards in some places at those places!!
for fun at the front desk at the hotel ask for the total package is $150 per person, includes, snorkling , jets skiing, banana boating, parasailing all in a 5hour day, they pick u up
from the hotel n drop you off
and u get a lunch too!!
YALL ENJOY!! good luck at the casinos at atlantis!! i won $500
n $200 the other day!! then lost $300 so i quit n came back with profit

Comfort Suites is a very servicable hotel with full access to Atlantis. It is just down the driveway a block from the Coral Tower. The rooms are not fancy but all have a sofa bed in addition to two full size or a king bed. By booking through Costco Travel we saved $1200 for two rooms five nights vs Atlantis plus free breakfast and Wi-fi. To go to Atlantis Aquaventure you just go to a booth in the Royal Tower to get a wristband each day. The breakfast buffet had a good variety and the room was very nice and bright.

For those of you who want to experience Atlantis, but can't afford the hotel rates, the Comfort Suites is a great choice. It was very easy to get a wristband each morning which gave us full access to the Atlantis waterpark, pools, and beach. The location is right next door to the Atlantis property and only about a minutes walk to the Marina Village area. A few added bonuses of the Comfort Suites are the free hot breakfast (not great, but definitely good to fill you up in the morning) and in-room refrigerator. The hotel is also right across the street from a shopping area that had a small grocery and liquor store. We bought bottled water, beer, and snacks at a fraction of the price of what is charged at the bars & restaurants on Paradise Island. Our room was nothing special (we did not have one of the remodelled rooms), but it met our needs and came with free Wi-Fi. The hotel also has a decent pool with swim up bar that is much quieter than the pools at Atlantis. Based upon our experience, we'll come back.

Room Tip: Request a remodelled room. The west wing of the property is also closest to the pool and Atlantis

Can't get any closer to Atlantis Resort without staying in it. In fact, you are closer to many of the resorts activities and restaurants than many of the hotels within the resort!

Average quality motel and brunch, great poolside bar area with swim up bar. Very friendly waiters and waitresses, although counter staff not too friendly.

Thought there would have been more information there on Atlantis Resort. Stay away from Anthony's restaurant across the street, but do try the hidden Green Parrot at Hurricane Hole just two blocks away for lunch or happy hour, right next to marina.

Room Tip: If elevator is important, pick a room on left side from the registration area, I think it's the...
