What a sweet deal with a low room price and full access to the Atlantis Resort included in the price! The Comfort Suites sit about 200 paces from the first of several hotels as part of the Atlantis Resort, plus an addition 200 paces to the public Casino. Your room key is your pass to Atlantis and all the activities, water slides, tube rides, aquarium exhibits (big sharks & rays), many pools and beaches, restaurants, etc., etc., etc....do not stray far from the paths especially one near the Coral Hotel where three (5') of about thirty nurse sharks actually raised their heads out of the water to greet me, or was it their prospective supper (picture)!?
The Comfort Suites is a cheaper and quieter alternative to staying within the Resort. If possible ask for a pool-side room in the 3-storey building, versus the newer 5-storey building overlooking the parking lots and their so-called (not) garden backing onto a concrete facade of the Convention Centre. Be prepared to be greeted regularly in the lobby by Royal Holiday time-share promoters with whom I am a member already and reason for my booking. There was also another pleasant surprise with an awesome included breakfast with an array of cereals, breads, bagels, muffins, scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, juices, coffees, tea, yogurt, cream cheese, milks, etc...but supplies dwindle and start being removed the closer you get to 10 am closing.
The bartenders of Crystal and Paul (didn't meet Michael) are a hoot and worth buying one or more drinks to exchange some fun banter. Crystal loves to "experiment" with her drinks and is loaded with suggestions for eats where the locals go (e.g., 20-minute walk over SouthBound Bridge to Twin Brothers...good!). Paul the dancing machine grooves to his own bar music and made some "Special" Goombay Smashes that required holding the handrail on stairs back to the room...my fault as I taunted him about evaporating alcohol in warmer weather!
Across the street, opposite direction to Atlantis, is a convenience mall for beverages, beer, alcohol, nicky-nacky souvenirs, D-Donuts, and Anthony's Resto (did not try). However, for some nice nearby restos, walk about 150 paces in direction of Atlantis to the Marina Village where you will find an array of fine dining, takeout pizza, ice cream, Starbucks, and many gift and souvenir shops, all along the dock to luxurious boats and cabin cruisers...whoa and wow! Alternatively, you can take a taxi from the lobby entrance over the bridge into Nassau to the Fish Fry array of noisy restos, or a ferry ride by the NorthBound Bridge pier to another dock area with a selection of restos (e.g., Señor Frogs).
So a Canadian-Bahaimian greeting for a pleasant vacation "Eh Mon"!
