My husband's work had a convention here in April, so we brought the kids (ages 9 and 11) and added a few days on to the holiday to make it a week long. The conference was putting us up in the Royal Towers, but to save some money we opted to stay our extra days in the Beach Towers. I was SO worried before coming here because the reviews I read on the Beach Tower trip advisor and on the Royal Tower Trip advisor were mostly horrible! So my entire family lowered our expectations and we prepared ourselves for the worst. We came here with the attitude that our vacation will be what we make of it and if we focus on the negative parts of this hotel we won't enjoy ourselves. And that's what we did and we had a fantastic time! If you are someone that focuses on the negatives you should not stay here. Preparation is key for this hotel. We learned from other reviewers to bring food. We brought an entire suitcase full of food such as, bread, rice cakes, peanut butter, jam, tuna, mayo, cup a noodles, granola bars, nuts, chips, apple sauce, candy, pina colada mix, kettle, bullet blender, large thermos to bring the pina colada to the pool and individual cooler cups for the 4 of us. You can bring whatever food and drink you like to the pool and in and around the hotel. We brought water bottles to refill at the refill stations but the water tastes horrible at those refill stations so we just used out water coupons from the hotel. We ended up with enough since a traveller leaving the hotel gave us their extras, otherwise we would have run out of the coupons we received at check in. The beach hotel itself isn't very nice. The view is terrible and the rooms are VERY worn and the hallways are musty. The hallway on our floor smelled like baby diapers the entire time we stayed there. I heard another famliy comment on that smell as well. After a couple of nights we moved to the Royal Towers once the conference started and I would have to say that staying in the Royal Towers is worth the money. I'm sure glad we stayed there on our trip. If you are spending this much money to stay at Atlantis, splurge and get a Royal room. The view is amazing and the rooms are better than the beach (not a lot better but some!). I feel like if we didn't stay in the Royal Towers our trip wouldn't have been nearly as good. We had two rooms at the Royal Towers (we had to move due to a noisy neighbor our last 2 nights). We had a view of the resort and the second room was a view of the Dolphin Cay Cruise ship dock and back of the resort. I liked the view of the resort the best. The room windows are floor to ceiling providing a great view. Be prepared to do a ton of walking. I walk frequently for exercise at home and still found this to be a lot of walking, which I quite enjoyed. We saw the entire resort in the 7 days but that took effort! We swam in every pool and visited every beach. Saw every aquarium (which are amazing!!!) and walked through the entire hotel, including the gross smokey casino. Outside the resort where the restaurants are was a beautiful walk in the evening with a few shops, ice cream, yachts, etc. Bring your most comfortable shoes. I wore my sketcher go walk's instead of flip flops during the day as they were hurting my feet. If you'd like to eat at any of the restaurants during peak time you will need a reservation or you will be eating at 10pm. The pools, slides and lazy rivers are so fun for all ages. There are 2 lazy rivers. The one near the beach tower is calmer than the one around the power tower slides. From the lazy river, you can get off your tube and ride the power tower slides. Not many people seem to know this, especially the cruise ship passengers) so the line ups were never that long. There are many towel and wristband huts around the property so if one has a line up just go to another one. Each pool around the property had a different atmosphere so it was fun checking out them all and choosing our favourites. The cruise ship passengers seem to set up near the myan temple slides and don't move so if you want quieter, go anywhere else! There are photographers around taking photos you can buy. We found the fast food by the pool decent. They had vegetables and dip which was nice. The food isn't any more expensive than Disney or New York or San Fran. I find it odd people complain so much about the food prices so much on these reviews. It isn't any more expensive than any other tourist destination in the USA. We also made food from what we brought in our room and brought it to the pool. Drinks too! We enjoyed our pina coladas by the pool (made these with the mix and blender we brought) and carried our duty free rum in our bag to add for my husband and I. We splurged and bought fancy drinks by the pool one day and they were delicous but super expensive. The beaches are all nice and just like the pools, each one offers a different atmosphere. The Atlantis beach is the public beach and it was the busiest and noisiest. I prefered the Cove beach, it was quiet, not busy, and we snorkelled off the beach. We also snorkelled in the Atlantis Lagoon off the beach for free. There are life jackets there if needed. In fact, you have to wear one to snorkel in the lagoon. I participated in a Dolphin experience and it was really amazing. I did the foot push, held the dolphin and did a fin swim. They supply a locker, wet suit, and a snorkel mask and snorkel to keep. Once you finish your swim you can stay in the Cay for the rest of the day if you like. You can pay to just sit on the Dolphin Cay beach if you want to watch a friend. Depending on where they are in the lagoon it might not be easy to see them. There is also a little viewing area by the entrance of Dolphin Cay near the store that is free, but not the greatest view depending on where the group is that you are watching. The Dolphin Lagoon is huge. There are kids clubs ($$) that kids can go to if babysitting is needed. Our kids went one night we were at a function and they had a great time. We found all of the employees to be very nice. The food was good. The sun was shining. The beaches are beautiful. The water is clear. The slides were so much fun. There is a TON to see and do. You will never be bored. If you go with a positive outlook and prepare yourself for the trip and don't let the little things bother you, you will have a great time. Staying at Altantis was a trip of a lifetime for us but I would love to go back one day.

Hotel's Favorite
My sister and I visited Atlantis last week. We stayed at the beach resort on property. This resort is enormous, but you never get lost. The layout is great with signage everywhere and a map given at check in. There is also a daily printout of daily activities. A million more than listed on the website! Our room was clean and comfortable. There is plenty of space to put away your belongings and a little fridge and shelves for snacks (we brought snacks, they aren’t provided) There are two bottles of water provided but they cost money. You are given water vouchers at check in for two bottles per person per day that can be cashed in at the bars around the pools. There are also free water filling stations throughout the park. I didn’t care for the taste of that water but I brought packets of vitamin C (emergenC) and mixed that in and it was a little better. The staff is the friendliest staff I’ve ever encountered. Perry the bellhop got us started off with some great tips on how to do as much as possible on a short trip. He then took our photo on the balcony with ocean view to get us started. You can walk through the hotels to get from point A to B but Perry recommended using the outdoor pathways. This was the best tip! Every where you go there are little ponds, nurseries, tanks, tunnels, etc with information posted on the exhibit and conservation. We stumbled onto so many things not on the maps. It was like little awesome secrets to find! Speaking of conservation we were happy to see the environmentally friendly paper straws verses plastic ones used at the restaurants. Our favorite restaurant was Poseidon’s Table (the buffet at the royal) it was huge and no wait. It had a nice variety and we could fill up and avoid eating large meals 3x a day. We had dinner there once and breakfast on our last day. They also had stroller parking so the trip to the buffet wasn’t a maze of strollers. We also had dinner one night at the marina village. It reminded me of downtown Disney with yachts as the background. We tried to see the electric parade but we must’ve missed it (our fault for not wearing watches) We also enjoyed seeing the feedings at the ruins. We wanted to snorkel the ruins. This would be my ONLY complaint; you MUST reserve ANY excursions, or adventures before arriving or they are filled up. So we looked on the bright side that we saved money and snorkel the lagoon instead. We saw lots of cool fish (even saw 3 juvenile barracuda!) We also snorkeled the cove beach and were not disappointed! The Atlantis beach doesn’t have any hiding spots for fish so snorkeling was a bust there, but there are jet skis creating waves just past the ropes so that was actually pretty fun too. The jet skis can be rented ($140/hour)?but aren’t part of Atlantis. I can’t say enough good things about this resort! I can’t believe I waited so long to stay there. I found the pricing to be the equivalent of a Disney trip. Except I did win a little at the casino so maybe that makes it a little less expensive 😂. Atlantis is the 3rd resort I’ve stayed at in Nassau, and my favorite one! I can’t wait to go back!

Moral seems very low with the staff. Most seem down and not happy to be here. It’s hard to get basic courtesy much less a happy smile. Our cab driver explained that the Bahamas makes over a trillion dollars annually but the people see none of it. They are living in poverty working extra jobs just to live. Kind of makes it hard to enjoy a vacation here. The food and drink prices are unbelievably high. Standard breakfast for 2 adults, 2 young children was $89. Today it was $75 because hubby didn’t order food. There is a 12% government tax (VAT) plus a 15% gratuity tax added on to every purchase - so everything is 27% more than the menu states. For dinner, we spent over $100 for basic Chinese food. For drinks, forget it - double jack and coke: $33. One Pina colada over $30, refill is $30. The drinks have an alcohol taste but very very little (if any?) alcohol content. This is just an odd experience overall. Unhappy staff, really pricey food and drinks that are of basic quality at best. We’ve also been warned that although you pay the VAT tax on every purchase, Atlantis charges it again at the end of your stay on what you charged to your room (so overall 39% added on. And, the staff strongly encourage you to charge everything to your room. No cash is allowed.)Most people don’t realize it and don’t contest it. So, we’ve been paying as we go with a debit or credit card. Not risking the conflict at checkout. Overall not the happy, carefree Bahamian vacation we were hoping for.

Don't understand why they don't update this section of the Atlantis Hotel. Extremely old building, elevator barely closes, the musty smell from dampness lingers in the hallways and the room. Lamp by the bed had so much dust on it, bathroom was nothing to write home about, it was literally a typical Days Inn room. You have specify if you want an ocean view or not, not knowing this, we got a horrible view - rooftop. Our friends next door to us, as soon as they entered their room, the bottles of water were open. They happened to see a housekeeper in the hallway and told her about it, she said they had to contact the front desk, and guess what, they still got charged for it. Taxis don't come up to the entrance of the hotel, they stop at the bottom of the street ;and you have to walk up. Wouldn't waste my money on staying there again, would stay at the Marriott/Courtyard closer to town which is directly across the street from the beach.

We went to Atlantis 6 years ago when the kids were in 5th/7th grade and returned this spring break when they were in 10th/12th grade. The facilities are exactly the same.(therefore could use some updating) but the meal plans have changed drastically. I know we are choosing the most budget friendly lodgings so I knew not to expect glamourous surroundings in the room but having gone multiple places in between the 2 trips I'd have to say pick somewhere else unless you just have to go here one time. This time the old teens were happy by the pools, lazy river and sea. The need for the constant stimulation of the waterslides and swimming with dolphins etc was gone. So, for the price we could go many places. I find the food prices to be high and the service meh. They were much happier in Cancun, Dominican Republic and cruises to have my business There are fewer food options, a mandatory service charge everywhere/everything so there is no motivation to please you or make the experience good. There was one waiter at Virgil's BBQ who was exeptional and we tipped extra. Our best meals were at Frankie Gone Bananas but the service was mediocre and Virgils. I thought the buffet price was completely outrageous ($65/person BEFORE the mandatory tax and tip) but we did do it one night. I could not understand the ton of families in there for the food- literally some of everything, nothing outstanding. I consider us good sports/low maintenance travelers but we won't be back. I choose other experiences for the price.
