Our family of 4 stayed at the Comfort Suites Paradise Island for one week. Booked the hotel and flights through CAA travel website. The package price was prepaid and included the $5 per day per adult gratuity housekeeping charge as well as the energy surcharge. These additional mandatory resort charges amounted to $255.30 for the duration of our stay.
We calculated a $2000 savings by staying with the Comfort Suites instead of onsite at the Coral Towers Atlantis. Guests of Comfort Suites receive free entrance to Atlantis daily. Less than 10 minute walk to pick up your wrist bands and access Atlantis. You will have signing privileges at Atlantis for meals and drinks with your "pink card". To purchase souvenirs in Atlantis you will need to bring your credit card. (No cash policy, pink card for food and beverages only) Purchases in Atlantis Marina Village can be paid with cash or credit card and pink card if purchasing food or beverages.
Free WIFI and free breakfast buffet (eggs, sausages, fruits, cereals, yogurt, toaster waffles, assorted breads, muffins and pastries as well as bacon on the weekends) are also a bonus at the Comfort Suites. Microwave, fridge and safe in room a great perk. (Was never charged the $2 per day for the use of the safe) Our room was on the 3rd floor mid way to the staircase for the front lobby, front desk. Clean, quiet and comfortable. Hotel pool and grounds are well maintained and very secure! Staff were friendly and helpful. Pool bartender was a big hit with guests and kids. Drinks average about $10 each with 15% tip included. Adding the extra 5% was greatly appreciated. Pool bar closes at 7pm, the hotel lobby bar is open late.
Guest laundry was handy, 3rd floor over front desk. Strip mall across the road easy access for water bottles, liquor store, Dunkin Donuts and Anthony's Grill. (Good, cheap, takeout pizza)
Overall we experienced great value and great service resulting in a really great vacation. We would not hesitate to book another stay at the Comfort Suites Paradise Island.
