I recently stayed here with my husband for the 2nd time - we first came here in 2007 when the resort had just opened and unfortunately nothing has changed and it is in dire need of updates. i would consistently find grout from the bathroom on the bottom of my feet, the couch had stains and the beach chairs had frayed canopies. Additionally our check in process was an amateur hour, we were told that the maid was in our room and it would be ready shortly for over 3.5 hours and after having the last person yell at us when we asked for an update we had to call American Express to intervene, then when we got to our room and pulled back the covers it was clear the sheets hadn't been changed from the prior guests. The food at the cove and on the beach is average, but the higher end restaurants like Dune and Nobu were great. The beach is one of the best I just wish the resort was nicer. Next time will stay at the Ocean Club or the new Rosewood that's being built.

We own a Starwood vacation property and attempt mat of our hotel stays to be booked in Starwood properties such as Grosnevoor house in Dubai and hotel Danielli in Venice and a favorite the Punta Mita St Regis buttered estate.
Having had these points of reference we were so pleasantly met with the leadership of Mr. Markantonis and the clear influence he has on his staff.
Having run high end hospitality operations I empathize while in others operations thinking if it was my operation I would want eyes everywhere to understand how things operate outside of your presence.

We chatted with many employees and it was the first time i Experienced a facility where ALL....ALL of the employees we chatted with had something insightful and respectful to share about their leader, Mr. Markantonis. What a breath of fresh air and honor to see this reflected through numerous employees In varied positions.
We had the pleasure to chat with Mr. Markantonis and first and experience his essence and the motivation and drive behind the resort. This is a passionate leader who will grow the Atlantis resort and continue to hear and adapt to the needs of his clients in the process.
Any development un a great location can provide a great view and extensive accommodations but the true business lies in the ability to make long standing intuitive relationships. This them has conquered that mission,

Most notably At the Cain Michelle, Kayla, Brandon, Obidaia, Kendra with their incredible can do attitudes and the genuine work ethic and positive spirit of Julianne- if her children wouldn't miss her we would have asked her to mce back to NY with us. These are the types of people that make your trip grow from good to wonderful.

Bottom line whether for a long weekend or a large scale special occasion event Atlantis is a hot spot for incredible entertaining, people watching, dinning, rfrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrdancing to current sought after DJ's, and knowing when you entrust your group with Atlantis your expectations will be pleasantly exceeded. Tip book your winter long weekends early.

Having gone to the Cove at least 10 times over the past five times is testament to how much we enjoy going there. The rooms are large, comfortable, and clean. The bathroom is top of the line. The grounds are gorgeous and well kept. The employees are always friendly and constantly say hello or good morning to us. Check-in has always been a breeze, even when we come on a holiday weekend. We thoroughly enjoy our mini breakfast at the Starbucks at the Reef, where all the employees are nice and friendly
But the nicest thing about the Atlantis is the Cain pool- My wife and I are not in our 20's we are in our 50's and enjoy the pool scene, and the other friendly guests we meet. We basically sit at the pool 6-8 hours a day, people watch, listen to the music, and meet some very nice people. All of the employees are nice and friendly, and the service is great, I never have a problem getting a beer, a drink, water, or food. Thank you, Jimmy and Michelle. Laverne, Ericka, Jucinta, Charlton, Brandon, Naomi, Nasair, Glenda, Gary, Ricardo, Chavez etc.. You make our stay enjoyable and fun. This past weekend the DJ, Michael really got the pool hopping, he was just awesome.
My recommendation to the powers that be: on weekends, especially in the summer, let the DJ and the pool stay open until 7:00 pm or even 800 pm on holiday weekends, the place really gets hopping at the end day why close it down at 6:00, particularly in the summer, when sunset is close to 9:00 pm. The competition is going to start very soon when the Bahamar opens in 15 about 15 months, you want to make sure that you make your crown jewel, which is the Cain pool, as enticing as possible.

I will preface this review by stating that I am not a big fan of mega-resorts.

We were at the Cove for a wedding. We stayed on the 5th floor with an ocean view. Nice room and well kept. However, one of the TV's didn't have sound and even though they attempted, didn't get it fixed during our stay. There wasn't any soap in the bathroom, but a call to the front desk had it there in minutes.

We had a good time at Atlantis, but it is stupid expensive. For example, we got charged a $35/day utility fee in addition to the $279/day room (which was a deal for the wedding), $2/day per person for use of the beach (even though we never used it and because of the wind they had the beaches closed!), they automatically add a 15% gratuity to all the restaurants and charge for the bell service whether you use it or not. The restaurants are also expensive. We had a breakfast buffet one morning (Mosaics, very good) and it was $73 for the two of us. It is a huge property with lots of walking involved whenever you wanted to go anywhere, however, there is lots to do. The staff are very friendly, knowledgeable and go out of their way to help.

Room Tip: Pick a room with an open balcony so you can see the view while sitting down in the room. The rooms with open balconies also have a couple of chairs on them. Our room had a cement wall and no place to sit, so you had to stand to admire the (great) view.

We have stayed at the Atlantis many times, and prior to this last trip have always considered it one of our favorite vacation spots. We were traveling with two other couples, and we splurged and booked the Cove.

The room itself was spacious and had a nice view. However, considering the Atlantis room rate, the furniture quality was disappointing - basic and rather cheap looking. Unfortunately, the warmth and friendliness we've always encountered from the employees was lacking this time. We felt as if we were an intrusion.

Our biggest disappointment was the poor service we experienced throughout our stay. All of us were calling daily for one amenity or another that housekeeping forgot to leave. This was particularly annoying knowing they were receiving over $40/day gratuity. It should not take four phone calls to get coffee for the coffee maker. Turndown service was hit or miss - one couple received it, one did not, and we only received it one night. I had to call their "prompt response" team to come repair our bedside phone but they never responded. Several of the restaurant's wait staff seemed totally disinterested. They would be chit chatting with their friends while we waited and waited for our check or to have our order taken.

We did enjoy the seclusion of being at the Cove and found the beach concierge to be most helpful.

Overall though, it was so disappointing to us to see how far downhill the Atlantis has gone since our last visit a few years ago. We will be looking elsewhere for future Bahama vacations. Terribly overpriced for what you get.
