Is Comfort Suites Paradise Island Good for 60 year olds

Comfort Suites Paradise Island - - we are an active couple in our early 60's and am wondering if this is a good location for us. I've read many good reviews and some mixed reviews. Is it walkable to the beach? I undersand that access to Atlantis is included and is a plus, but am not clear on what all there is to do? Is it mainly for children? Thanks in advance.

It's a 10 min. walk to the nearest ocean beach in front of the Coral Towers. I did it many times staying at C.S.. My last visit was when I was 61 and had no problem walking miles around Atlantis and the Bahamas daily. It's a 2 min.walk out the back door stairways over to the Casino and Coral Tower lobby. C.S. is a great place to stay. Stayed there 11 times on one week visits.

And for all access to Atlantis facilities means the use of beaches, pools, waterparks as well as other Atlantis guest facilities (movie theatre, gym, tennis, etc) And of course, all public areas, casino, restaurants and lounges. There is a shuttle bus between the various towers.

Comfort Suites is owned by Atlantis, and is usually a better rate than the regular Atlantis hotels. However, if proximity is important, have a look and see if a Beach or Coral towers option works for you. Comfort Suite guests have a complimentary continental breakfast, and there is also a swim up bar and pool area that is nice for an afternoon/evening swim without having to trek back over to Atlantis (the pools close at dusk at Atlantis, the CS pool is open much later)

Thanks much for the info. We are a fit, active couple so I think we'll be fine.

I see your profile says you are an expert regarding Paradise Island. Do you have any other tips you can share. We will be there for two weeks in February and have never been to the Bahamas before. We are active and don't mind walking a couple of miles. Thanks again.

My first visit was in early Feb. 13 years ago. The sea was in the low 70's F.. With a stiff breeze blowing as is common in the winter months, there's a bit a wind chill coming out of the waters. Also bring a light jacket and long pants as the evenings can be a bit chilly with a breeze blowing.

We JUST returned from The Grand Hyatt Baha Mar in Nassau. I’m 60, my husband 65. We loved it! Close to the beach, fabulous pools! Restaurants are wonderful but pricey. Great casino too. I recommend Grand Hyatt Baha Mar.

I didn't like staying at CS. I was with my mother and we felt too far away. She couldn't figure her way back one day when I left before her for some reason (I forget why) and she panicked. It's not worth saving a few bucks. It's in the middle of busy highways that you have to traverse across to get to the furthest corner of the resort.

I beg to differ with you Deb. Going out the back stairways you only cross a DRIVEWAY leading to the Coral Tower Lobby at Atlantis. NO highways need to be crossed other than the very short walk across the Atlantis driveway. Having stayed at CS 11 times, for 77 days I know what I'm talking about.
