I had been so looking forward to coming back to Atlantis because I had not been there since I was a Kid. But the great memories that I had of Atlantis stayed as only memories and my girlfriends first time was not as magical as I had made it out to be. We had arrived in the afternoon after travelling 16 hours from London and went up to our room, the room was nice but for some reason there were mouldy vegetables in the fridge instead of a mini bar. So wanting some water and a light snack before crashing out I ordered a 2 soups and 2 bottles of water... total? $68! I calculated that the food & drink + a small delivery charge would be a maximum of $40 so God knows where the other $28 came from? After a mild grumble we drifted off to sleep. The next morning, I wanted to make coffee using the machine provided in the room. The plan was doomed from the start as after 3 mins of turning it on the whole coffee-holding-area began to overflow and go over the cabinet. The machine was broken and the little nozzle at the bottom of the coffee-holding-area was stuck closed. So after a clean up effort we descended to the Starbucks in the lobby, the queue was out of the door and we waited nearly 40 mins to get our morning fix (maybe it was so busy because other peoples machines didn't work either?). The were numerous other 'little' events that happened, but the overall theme of it is that Atlantis will charge you for just about anything...even water cups (quick tip...the only free water I found was by dolphin cay) While I love the Aquarium and the water park is great fun (though my shorts have gone a slight odd shade of green), Atlantis is very over priced for what you get out of it.
