i,v just returned home having had the pleasure of staying at atlantis for 6 nights in early may... well what can i say about this truly exceptional experience, the list is endless , but here goes...... i travelled with my wife and two children aged 3 and 4... on our arrival at the hotel at 6.30am local time we were met personally by the assistant resort manager who oversaw our speedy check in. i had sent the hotel a short email prior to our arrival with 3 small requests regarding our deluxe room, all these requests were granted and we found our room to be perfect for our needs, the beds are very comfortable, huge walk in shower big enough for 4 , bath big enough for two!!!!!! and all toiletries restocked daily......... on day one we visited the Aquaventure water park which is linked to the hotel with free entry for hotel guest (normal price is 55 pounds per adult per day!!!!) ... we found it to be very clean and safe for our children with fully trained lifeguards situated 10 metres apart all around the park, "the leap of faith" is a must do experience... there are many food and drink outlets scattered around the park , lunch can be bought for 6-10 pounds with drinks 3-5 pounds, the kids play area called "splashers" really is fantastic and was a great hit with my two kids, all in all what a great start to our holiday............we visited the water park on 3 other occasions during our stay and every time we found there to be no or very short queues for the rides and the lazy river is a great relaxing family ride...... the lost chambers and the viewing areas of the huge aquarium are breathtaking, at 10am every day a diver hand feeds the vast array of sealife and is a great spectacle.
we ate in the hotel on 4 of our 6 nights at atlantis at the beach restaurant called nasimi and the saffron restaurant . nasimi was a very good experience , but Saffron WOW , it is a buffet style help yourself retaurant and i truly exeptional with a huge array of culinay delights( steak , chinese, indian, unbelievable fish selection lebanese, salad bar etc etc etc) for any tastebud added to that the chocolate fountain with more soft chewy sweets to choose from than a pick and mix shop, cost per person for the buffet is 40 pounds, (the children had the option of their own set menu for 6 pounds a person) a little pricey maybe but worth the experience, we also ate breakfast in saffron which again was simply fantastic... there is another buffet style eaterie at atlantis called kaleidscope which has an excellent choice of food too, others to be found on the atlantis site are NOBU, SEAFIRE, LOCATELLI,s to name but a few.....
the absolute second to none service we recieved from all the hotel staff right from the assistant resort manager ,guest services,security staff, concierge, bellmen, waiters, pool attendants, lifeguards really made our holiday, no one could do enough for us and even the smallest or strangest request was met with a polite "of course sir".....
now down to the money side of things, well anyone that has done their homework on dubai knows its not cheap (6 pounds for a cup of tea) and we fully expected some hefty bills at the end of our stay but this was simply outweighed by the amazing and exceptional experience we had at atlantis.... i cannot fault the hotel in the slightest, will we return again there.. ABSOLUTELY....THANKYOU AND WELL DONE TO EVERYONE AT ATLANTIS, we had an amazing holiday
