We decided to spend 3 days at Andrew Wardens newly opened Atlantis Hotel before we moved on the Little Good Harbour for a week.
Mr Babb, the local taxi driver welcomed us at the Airport and drove us the short twenty minute journey to the wild Atlantic coast east side of the island and the Atlantis Hotel.
Andrew was there to greet us in person late on Sunday afternoon.
The rooms are simply but beautifully furnished. Wooden floors, fans, air con, bright with a bed so big. The view is stunning, with the Atlantic Ocean crashing on to the rocks under your bedroom window and the restaurant terrace. The Hotel has a pool and sunbathing area for the 10 bedrooms of guests. The place hums at lunchtime but is quiet and romantic in the evening. The Manager, Many (ex Cliffe restauarant) is one of those charming characters - nothing is too much trouble. We reckon both he and Graham from the Fish Pot, must be brothers! They certainly have no home life judging by the time they spend working! All the staff at Atlantis are so charming and genuine.
In summary this is a great place to chill quickly on your way to Little Good Harbour. You can't swim in the sea because of the sea state and currents, and it is very quiet! But as you sit on the Terrace eating lunch, a glass of chilled Cloudy Bay in hand, watching the blue blue sea crash over the rocks, life does not get any better?
Please visit this Hotel, even if it is just for a day out for lunch - and what a lunch!
