“Lovely place. Gracious staff.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

A friend and I stayed at the Atlantis because we were attending a wedding of a dear friend's daughter. From the first email to the Atlantis to our final good byes, our stay was just wonderful. The staff is friendly, courteous and gracious. The cottage we stayed in was large and airy, right on the ocean. The view could not have been more perfect. Everything in the cottage was pretty and fresh. Decorated in an elegant island style with lush linens and fluffy towels, it had everything you'd expect at a first quality resort. But in addition the warmth and casual style of the staff made our stay feel like visiting with friends. Plus the neighborhood is very nice, the people friendly and helpful to visitors.

The rehearsal dinner was held at the Atlantis and the buffet was delicious and included a perfect combination of Bajan specialities and interestingly prepared foods from all over the world all with a Bajan twist. The staff kept the evening moving along, always thoughtful and kind. The Atlantis banquet room was elegant with sea breezes drifting thru wide windows with their shutters open. A night breeze off the ocean. Surf in the background. Everyone laughing and enjoying the hospitality of the Atlantis. A perfect way to gather people from all over the world for a wedding. Many people in Barbados for the wedding said how much they enjoyed the food, hospitality and setting.

I hope to return again. You know you've had a wonderful vacation when you want to repeat it exactly as it was. My time in Barbados and at the Atlantis was exactly like that. Thanks Diane, Manny, Adrian and all the Atlantis staff. If planning a wedding somewhere beyond special consider Barbados and specifically the Atlantis.

Thanks for your kind review.

I keep rehashing that the simple things in life are usually the best. Simply watching the sun rise or perhaps simply walking along the rugged coastline admiring the un-spoilt vistas up down the rugged coastline.
Thanks for staying with us and we hope to see you again soon.

We know Barbados very well and during this trip we were treated to a night's stay at the Atlantis Hotel to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We have visited Bathsheba many times over the years but have never had the opportunity of staying the night. Such beautiful lush scenery and a nice change to be by the Atlantic and watch the surfers. What a memorable occasion to celebrate at the Atlantis with champagne and great food. The room was lovely, clean with a beautiful view overlooking the ocean. All the staff were friendly, helpful and welcoming. Thank you for such a special time - we will definitely return!

Thanks for taking the time to tell readers how much you enjoyed your stay with us.

Every person visiting Barbados should really consider spending one or two nights on the east coast - watching the sun rise is perhaps more spectacular than watching in set and at that time of the new day it really allows one to reflect on how lucky they are to be witnessing the start of a another day in paradise

The Atlantis Hotel in Tent Bay was everything we thought it would be - absolutely wonderful. Being greeted by the friendly staff was the first introduction. A cold rum punch or plain punch was very welcome and refreshing. No fuss getting our belongings into the 2-bed cottage. Since it was already ready, and we came early for the buffet lunch, they let us into the cottage. OMG - the views from the balcony overlooking the Atlantic ocean was beyond words. There were rocking chairs on the balcony as well. I haven't sat in a rocking chair since my children were born and they are now adults. Lovely and so very relaxing (I had forgotten how nice it was to rock to and fro), listening to the waves and watching the fishermen come in from their day fishing on the ocean. The pool was wonderful with an infinity view over the ocean; swam every day at least once. The food was delicious. My husband is a picky eater and staff couldn't have been more accommodating - no hot spices - just plain well seasoned (salt and pepper) meat - chicken, steak, or pork. I'm the adventurous one - I'll try anything once- and I love seafood - which was spectacularly cooked and so fresh (just brought in that day from the ocean). We only spent 3 days, but wished we had stayed much longer. The rooms in the cottage were quite comfortably large - the master bedroom was air conditioned, the living room had wonderfully comfy sofas and the kitchen was used only once! The bed was comfortable, but we found the duvet cover was too warm, and staff exchanged it for a lovely light blanket. We don't like super cold a/c. Thank you to Manny, Diane, Edward, Andrew and all those lovely, lovely staff (sorry, I don't remember your names) who were so pleasant and easy going, yet efficient. We will be back for a much longer stay. The staff at Atlantis took really good care of us - what more could you ask for?!

Room Tip: Any room would be great. We preferred the cottage because of the balcony and rocking chairs.

We have just spend 5 wonderful days at the Atlantis. The Hotel is very comfortable and we would say lacks nothing. The rooms are clean and the bed is very comfortable. The staff and the service is second to none, we think that many of the restaurants and hotels in the South and West Coast could very well learn a lot from your people. The meals are excellent and are of a wide variety. Your staff are all Bajans like ourselves and we are "Pround to be Bajans"

We had originally booked for Sunday Buffet but a slight mishap with a bat and ball meant we couldn't go. Having eaten at The Fish Pot on quite a few occasions we decided that we couldn't miss The Atlantis whilst we were in Barbados. The last time we were there in 2007 it wasn't open. So off we trotted to Bathsheba and The Atlantis.
Of the 4 of us I was the only one that didn't enjoy my meal but that's simply because I chose the wrong thing for me - the fish had the skin on which I don't like and the cou cou was just not to my taste. However the Pepperpot and the Goat Curry that the others had was great and my lime tart dessert was yummy!
The setting takes your breath away, the staff were very helpful and friendly and the hotel, despite being opened for 4 years, still looks brand new.
I can't wait until my next trip to Barbados and a chance to try a few nights at The Atlantis.

We travel around the world quite a lot, both for business and pleasure. Barbados, but especially The Atlantis Hotel has the most friendly and helpfull people from the globe.

We were 2 nights at the Hilton Barbados (supposedly 5 star resort) on business at the beginning of the week, but we enjoyed much more the Atlantis Hotel (being a 3 1/2 star hotel)
Better food, better service, better maintained accomodation.... This colonial style hotel in a very well maintained condition with large clean rooms, the great food, the very friendly service and beautiful wild coast, makes you really feel on holiday... it was great and we will be back!

Room Tip: an ocean view room, literally at 5-10 metres from the sea, is definitely worthwhile...

My husband and I enjoyed a week at The Atlantis. We were originally booked at another Inn and were not happy with the accomodations. My husband went for a walk and found the Atlantis at the bottom of the hill. Diane welcomed us with open arms. The staff was very accomadating, the Inn is clean and well kept, and the food is amazing!!! We ate just about every meal there at the restaurant. The owner, Andrew, is very friendly and takes great pride in his Hotel. Thank you for a very memorable week. We will definately stay at the Atlantis again someday!!!!

Room Tip: There is not a bad room at the Inn. I loved waking up and going to sleep to the sounds of the ocean...
