“Our Meeting and Stay at Atlantica Oak Island”
Reviewed September 26, 2012

We have recently returned from our Eighth annual meeting at this wonderful facility. From the time you are checked in by the smiling friendly checkin person until you check out friendly and efficient service is the receipe for your stay. The accomodations are immaculate, the food is excellent and the staff is there to cheerfully accomodate any of your requests. From the guest manager, the banquet manager and the general manager you are made to feel that you are one to the family and very welcome. As stated above this is our eighth annual meeting at this location and all things being equal we will be returning for our ninth. I would certainly recommend them to anyone and also that their entertainment is excellent. My wife and I have stayed here not for business and have received the same excellent service.

Room Tip: Rooms on the third floor with an ocean view are breath taking for the sunrises

Recently returned from a 2 night stay in one of the new oceanfront villas/townhomes at Atlantica Oak Island. Ended up getting a great rate of $319/night, down from the usual $399/night during high season. Check-in was quick and proficient and info/map about the resort was provided. The townhomes are only a couple of years old in comparison to the rest of the resort. Parking is very convenient right outside the front door of the house. That helped with unloading of food and suitcases. Upon entering, you pass through the beautiful granite kitchen which opens up to the living room and dining area. The ocean and marina views out the sliding doors are fantastic!! The deck has a BBQ although it is in dire need of replacing. Very rusty and worn. As well, there were 2 chairs and a table on the deck. The whole deck area could use a good sweep and cleaning but I guess you don't spend much time looking down at the floor/dirt as the views are breathtaking! The rest of the house was very well equipped- plenty of kitchen utensils and cutlery, lots of towels in the bathrooms and fluffy bathrobes for each guest.
The upstairs bedroom is loft style and open to the main living/dining room area below. If you need privacy or quiet sleeping arrangements, this might not work for you! The second bedroom is on the ground level and is very private and quiet. Both bedrooms have their own full bathroom and there is a powder room on the main floor off the kitchen area. The townhouse could use a fresh paint job and deep cleaning as many walls were scuffed and chipped and baseboards were dusty.
The outdoor pool is very chilly even on a hot day but had plenty of chairs and loungers on the pool deck for relaxing. The indoor pool and hot tub are much more comfortable, especially if you have small kids who don't like cold water. There is a playground and mini golf and area adjacent to the outdoor pool. We also did the scavenger hunt. You can get a map with the instructions and clues from the front desk. Upon completion, you can return the page and get to choose something from the Treasure Chest. My daughter loved this!!
Overall, we were very pleased with our stay and would recommend it to others but might hesitate at paying full price in high season.

We just completed our first family summer holiday. My wife and I decided to take an old fashioned road trip out east to visit relatives. After an extended drive through Nova Scotia we arrived at the Atlantica and the timing could not have been better. With 3 children (3 year old, 2 year old and a 9 month old) we could not wait to get out of the truck and enjoy some R and R. The service at the Atlantica was outstanding. The extra effort put forth to make our oceanside family lobster boil request work went well beyond the call of duty.
On behalf of my family I would like to thank the entire staff at the Atlantica. Why go west when you can go east to the Atlantica!

Gorgeous view of the water.

The rest is pretty old - say 29 years old. Front desk staff could definitely be more helpful. And it's hard to find anything. Could use some better signage.

I don't think I'll be returning.

We stayed at the Atlantica Hotel and Marina Oak Island resort in August and had a wonderful experience. The hotel room was clean and bright and the resort itself was flawless. The restaurant was great, the food was well made and there will great options for kids and parents and staff were kind and very kid friendly. The grounds were great, lots do do and see and pools (one indoor and one outdoor) were the highlight to our vacation. Staying at a small, old bed and breakfast just wouldn't work for our family so here we got the best of both worlds- we were close to all the sights (Lunenberg) and also had the amenities of a family resort. We will return again and again.

We stayed here for two nights recently, but I'm not sure I would want to again. Choices are limited for hotels in this beautiful area, so it's a matter of taking what is available. The rooms are clean, although they really could use some updating. The wifi didn't work at all in the room, only in the bathroom for some odd reason, but there is a business centre in the lobby. The coffee maker in the room is the dumbest design I have ever seen, and to get coffee in the restaurant is $5 for two of them. The pool area is nice, with a hot tub surrounded by windows, but the jets in the hot tub are pretty weak. I think next time we come here, I will look in to B&B's or something else, but not here. Really not worth the money.

We recently went to Atlantica Oak Island for our anniversary trip and purchased the Seaside Romance Package. We stayed in the Villas which was a real treat. Three levels of beautifulness, with wonderful views from all floors. The decks on the lower level was pretty much right on the beach of the marina. When we arrived there was the wine, cheese and crackers, flowers and gift as promised. Everyone was super friendly and the food was divine! Their mussels in different type sauces were spectacular. We are hoping to go again for Easter.
