My wife and I just got back from a 4 night trip here that we booked on cheap Caribbean. I'll give some positives and negatives as well as some tips. Positives: #1 value. This hotel offers FULL access to all of the Atlantis. If youre on a cruise it costs 125 bucks for a wrist band to go to the waterpark, see the aquarium,etc and that's included every day at CSPI. Like so many others have said, the breakfast is free. And that makes it taste fantastic. High end buffet it isn't, but in my opinion it's excellent by free breakfast standards. My wife loved the eggs and the coffee was pretty decent too. The food is probably Denny's standards. #2 positive: the rooms. They are great for the money when you look at it as a whole package. They are pretty big(we had 112) and clean. We read reviews on TA ahead of time and requested a ground floor room in the renovated area, and it was perfect. Atlantis' casino is not more than 400 yards from these rooms, though the resort itself is ginormous. You really do need a shuttle to get to parts of it. especially if you play golf, which you have access to by staying at CS-another plus. I played the golf course and it is one of the most beautiful settings I've ever played. We passed one couple who had decided to "pause" their round and walk the beach for a while on like hole 7. Well worth the $. Go after 1:00 and you can save about $75 off the morning rate. Negatives: I'll be blunt. It's "island time" all the time here. It takes a while to check in if you get there around 3, a couple days no one cleaned the room until around 7 or 8, and in general just about everyone seemed like they were going through the motions on the staff. This was a common theme throughout the island however and not just at CS. I saw quite a few instances at the Atlantis too, so if this is the location you choose, might as well pay less to get crappy service in my opinion. Tips:
Buy food/liquor before you cross the bridge. Worth paying a few bucks to stop your taxi. Doritos were at gold pricing at the market next to hotel.
Eat breakfast early and by the pool.
Wrist band station in the lobby of atlantis opens at 9:00, no one starts showing up to get bands until 9:45.
Loaded Nachos($7.50) by the kids pool are the best value on paradise island. Enough for 2 people for lunch.
Save your atlantis cup, the ladies told us we could keep filling it until "the bottom fell out." We filled it with rum in the afternoon and saved approximately one million dollars by making our own drinks.
No matter your age, go down the water slides. I promise you'll have fun.
Green Parrot(walking distance) is great for a cheeseburger and less than 15 bucks.
Viola's(walking distance)has happy hour from 7-9. Includes any kind of bacardi(including 8 year and 151) for $3.75.
Van Breugals is an inexpensive cab ride away and outstanding. My wife had a thai shrimp curry that was the best thing we ate in 5 days. My steak was good and less than 30 bucks. With drinks/grat. we spent less than a hundred bucks.
Most important tip: look at getting this hotel in a package. I'd never used cheap carribean but our deal was amazing. It was less for BOTH flight and hotel than booking the hotel directly by several hundred dollars.
You can make this place what you want. I think you could get a lot of rest if you wanted, gamble 15 hours a day, swim, snorkel, golf, ride watersides, and on and on. There is more to do here than any place I've ever been. Paradise island in general isn't as surreal as Maui or southern Italy, and this hotel's definitely not targeted at the one and only ocean club crowd. It's for value lovers seeking a little excitement in their vacation. That fit us perfectly and we are already telling all our friends about it and planning our next trip!
