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.
