How to Get There
When we first arrived we were early coming from the airport. The hotel told us we would have to wait until check-in time at 4pm which was fine. We then asked if we could go out to the pool to eat and they gave us trouble in getting access to any restaurant without roomcards. An hour later we were finally able to get outside and the restaurant service was terrible. Our waiter took extremely long to wait on us and when he did he made sure to point out that he had 7 other tables to attend to. 4 hours after we arrived they still did not have our rooms ready even though we had called early that morning requesting connecting rooms. We stood at the check-in desk for 2 hours fighting with very complacent and rude staff that were rolling their eyes at us. Eventually they agreed to upgrade us to the Coral Towers where we had a much more pleasant and amazing experience. Overall one of the worst hotels in the Atlantis group.
We stayed at the Coral Atlantis and I have to admit while the room was outdated with older furniture and carpet, the grounds fixed our perception of the resort. To walk around the whole resort is going to take you a good amount of time. The marine life displayed for the guests is simply beautiful. You have to remember that the prices at the resort are super high and there is a very large number of guests staying there. If you want a quieter evening, I would advise going to the Marina Atlantis. You will find nice restaurants and shops there.
We booked the deluxe double queen terrace view with balcony. Also booked the casual dining plan. When we arrived, I asked if we can get a view room and they “upgraded” us to a room facing the Royal towers - they did tell us the balcony was not accessible due to renovation. That’s about as good as it gets - all downhill from there. What they didn’t tell us was that the sliding door was so dirty that you couldn’t really see much - so much for view room. When I complained and asked to be moved back to our booked room, the front desk person insisted that I booked a non balcony room anyway so I should be happy with what I have. Long story short we ended staying in the room but we found the front desk staff to be indifferent at best - I guess when all gratuity is built into every charge, there’s not much incentive to work for it. Also the lobby area consistently smelled of mixture of sanitizing soap, damp dog, and faint cigarette smoke (from the casino). The room smelled similar and although it was a “newly renovated” room, it’s about a 2-2.5 star hotel/motel. The walls are thin, and we can hear the conversations next door. Everyday, either by 8am or 9am there would be loud drilling noises and remodeling noises. Turns out they are still “renovating” the balconies and that’s why the balconies are not accessible.
Casual dining plan - we had 2 kids under 12 so it was sort of worth it (kids eat free with paid adults). Be careful that you can only dine at Olives for breakfast only and not dinner - my oversight turned into a $300+ bill. I would say unless you are super hungry at every meal and don’t mind eating at a few restaurants every day then it’s worth it. Otherwise - instead of buffet breakfast every morning, you can just have a bagel from the deli next door.
Our overall experience was ok, we’ve been to Aulani and Grand Wailea in Maui and JW Marriott in Cabo. This probably ranked on the lower end. The Atlantis property is just so old that there’s renovation inside/outside virtually everywhere, so probably a lot nicer if you come in 2-3 years from now. Since we live on the west coast we’ll probably stay with Hawaii/Mexico venues - so much more to choose from for similar cost but better service and resorts.
We arrived and the first thing I noticed was the overly fragrant/chemical smell in lobby, almost trying to mask a mustiness. Check in was fine, we had booked a 2 queen room. The hallways were older. Room looked nicely remodeled, but when really look closely the doors and walls are still flimsy. Our room overlooked the roof and parking arrival. As was nice to have a balcony it would have been nice if the trash that was collecting on roof was picked up. The beds were actually pretty good quality, a bit firm, but adequate. However, the walls were just not insulated enough, so when our neighbor came in at 2am, we were all awake, myself, husband and 2 children. The good news was the neighbors were not up early. The halls are hot and stuffy. The room air is as loud as the sound machine I had on. After that evening, we relocated to the Reef........which was leaps and bounds awesome and worth price. The Coral and the Beach Tower are the older and lower end towers.
Yes a 1 star!
I wouldn’t even know where to begin... The Bahamas itself is a beautiful island and I most definitely will be returning soon. However, I will NEVER stay at The Coral at Atlantis again or any of the Atlantis resorts. Please understand that of course when you are on vacation you spend money you technically wouldn’t “normally” spend in your regular daily life. This Resort literally spike their prices to the point you feel like your a victim of theft on vacation. Our first night we had a burger and “fried potato chips” not sure why we couldn’t get fries, but all they served was fried chips each persons total was $35 not at all worth it. That night for dinner we not only had terrible service, but two of our group members paid $80 just for a 4oz steak & dried broccoli. They give you extremely poor service and then you’re forced to tip them anyways because the tip is already calculated in your check so if you receive sucky service or your food is not to perfection they literally show that they don’t care. Lastly, the room they gave us was still under construction and we weren’t able to enjoy our patio because it was closed off from us. We paid so much money and deserved to be able to utilize every inch of the resort & room but unfortunately not. After informing guest services back office of the dissatisfaction we were treated very badly. The lady on the other end of the phone was throwing so much attitude at me as if she didn’t want to be bothered and that she was right and we were wrong. She then said to me “ I don’t know why you’re not satisfied” she then without saying anything transferred me out. We were disrespected on several occasions and after reporting it to Valentino and (I forgot the other guys name), but after reporting it to them and they did nothing I even asked for a manager and the manager didn’t want to come speak to me. We just gave up and decided to just enjoy our vacation and not let the things happening ruin our vacation.
