Atlantis Beach Towers or Comfort Suites???

We are booking a trip to Paradise Island for first weekend in september with my 80 yr old parents (no kids) and have gotten identical deals at atlantis Beach Towers & Comfort Suites! we are so confused about which to choose. Only staying there 2 nights. its my parents first trip there so trying to make the best choice. free breakfast & wifi at comfort suites is only difference. we have stayed at comfort suites a long time ago and it was fine. Just curious if the entire atlantis experience is better staying at Beach towers. any input will be appreciated, especially from anyone having stayed at both. thanks!

Thanks, shmirl. CS people told us to go through the casino to the desk by the aquarium for our wrist bands and we never knew we could have gone to the towel huts. That'll save us some walking when we go to the aquaventure slides and pools too. Do you know if there is a towel hut by the Beach Tower pool?

I am so sorry. If you are staying at Atlantis, you show your room i.d. to get onto the grounds of Atlantis. Then proceed to a towel booth for your towels and wristbands. I do not know if your CS room key gets you through the pearly gates or not. I think Tigervette can speak to this.

Our pink CS passes got us pass the guards to the stairs down to the desk by the aquarium but we'll have our room keys this time so we should be good to go to the towel huts.

There you go, find a pool, find a hut. You are set.

shmirl,

I beg to differ on the C.S. guests getting their daily Aquaventure water park wrist band ID's. For as long as I can remember, and the last time I was there, Atlantis changed the rules for wrist band ID's for C.S. guests.

All guests of C.S, must go downstairs in the Royal Tower lobby to get their ID bands. They may have reverted back to the old rule going to the towel huts but you are the first to mention here in a LONG time CS guests can go to the towel huts.

As of 2 weeks ago, CS guests still had to go downstairs to get their wristbands. NOT at the towel hut.

Thanks tiklb. shmirl stays at Harborside so that person was not really aware of all the rules for C.S. guests. Now they know.

Thanks, all of you, for letting me know what applies where. We'll see how we like staying at the Beach tower this trip and, if we prefer CS, we'll go back there.

OP, I hope this conversation helped you as well.

Do you have to get a new bracelet each day?
