First note: I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS RESORT OR GO BACK
My husband and I spent 8 days at Atlantis and I am going to write a very honest review here.
Let me begin with giving you a more general overview of the Resort as to the way its built. Atlantis has 5 Towers - Beach, Coral, Royal and Cove and Reef. The Beach and Coral Towers are ONLY in my opinion 3 star hotels. The rooms are mediocre (older and somewhat run down furniture, building and bathroom) and the overall atmosphere is not luxury. I would say the Beach is a low-standard Best Western/Holiday Inn and the Coral is a more upgraded Best Western at best. NO Minibar in both rooms.
We first stayed at the Beach Tower but due to a dirty bathroom (black hairs in the tub and in every corner of the bathroom - some might have been pubic hair) and general dislike of the room, we got "upgraded" to a room at the Coral Tower with ocean view. It was better but in no way luxury.
I traveled to Atlantis with the expectation of it being a luxury, outstanding and world class resort. I can tell you - It is not!
The food is low quality (over cooked and cheaply made) at most places but very pricey. I would say it's about $100 (or more) per dinner for 2 people with only 1 glass of wine each. Lunch by the pools is simple (hamburgers etc.) and will cost you about $20-30 for 2 people.
To summarize it, here are my recommendations:
- Only stay at the Royal, Cove or Reef (I didn't see the rooms but seeing the lobbies and experiencing the atmosphere, it's a luxury standard)
- The ONLY yummy and reasonable priced food/drinks are at the bohemian restaurant in the "village" of the resort, called the Marina
- If you DON'T have kids, this is not the place for you. It's NOT a couples resort.
- If you DO have kids, 4 days are enough (Slides, aquariums and other activities can be done in that amount of time)
- It's ok for a bigger "party group"
- The staff was nice and very helpful to accommodate our needs (That's why I gave it 3 stars and not 2)
- Be ready to pay more for what it's worth (Food, Drinks, Casino, Activities)
