How to Get There
Atlantis was beautiful. I was skeptical and scared myself to death after reading reviews on the expense and high cost of food. So we were looking for problems that never happened. Yes gratuity 15% and vat tax 12 % that makes things a little bit higher but everything in moderation. Of course if kids are traveling I'm sure they will always be hungry but it was just me and the hubs. We are not morning people so we skipped breakfast and opted for lunch. A large pizza was $40 bucks with all taxes Included. Drinks were $16.50 with all taxes included but very good🍾. Restaurants were pricey but any upscale restaurant would be about the same in price. Spent about $200 at the steakhouse but we had surf and turf. It was like Morton's or Ruth Chris. Carmine's was about $80 for a HUGE sharable plate. Brewery was about $9 bucks a beer etc etc. Booking a roundtrip cab from airport is cheaper in advance $34 roundtrip vs. $42 each way getting it at the airport and resort.
I wrote Total Rewards in the title because our rooming was FREE based on comps for casino. We paid for airfare and had to put a deposit down for incidentals upon arrival. Deposits are usually $250 per day ($1,000) for stay but opted for the $150 per day ($600) for the stay. The resort is cashless but you can use your credit card as well.
We also received so freebies that was included called the casino pass experience which was simply 2 cocktails here, two cocktails there, dolphin experience, waterpark access and one round of golf. Though these items were gifted Gratuity and Vat tax is still added so we just grabbed the free drinks and paid $4 taxes on the cocktails.
Right outside the hotel is a liquor store, dunking donuts, etc... take advantage and get some snacks and drinks and take it to your room.
Casino is small and nice. Drinks are FREE as long as you gamble BUT if you are at the hotel on total rewards expense, you better gamble at least $100-$200 bucks or more a day. There is fine printed where you can be charged for the room if you don't gamble alitte something something. Luckily I like to gamble but I definitely took it slow.
Nice area with boats/yachts to eat, drink and be merry.
There are multiple towers and I believe they all have pools. Multiple slides, Starbucks, and lazy river.
Sea life is beautiful. There are sharks, fish, stingrays, etc et. Everywhere at the resort. You do not need a escort. Just walk 😁.
Don't touch the stocked booze and snack fridge in the room unless your prepared to pay- vat tax included. We did grab two $4 cans of coke.
We received multiple water coupons which provided us with 2 bottles of water each day which was dansani from anywhere on the resort for Free. There are refillable water stations around the pool so pack a empty water bottle or refill your water bottle.
Traveling off resort
We enjoyed the resort so much we really didn't leave much. We did however WALK over the BRIDGE and about 30 minutes to Rachael's Takeaway and Rum Cake Factory. We sat and ate at the small takeout place got some rum cake next door and headed back. The planned was the fish fry but you will need a cab.
What I packed
I packed plenty of minitures for my fanny pack 🤫 from alcohol to candy. Pack sneakers and slides for comfort. You will walk. Sunscreen and a sweater but weather was about 75 each day which I loved but pool was COLDDDDD. YOU will still swim. Shorts and tshirt and fanny pack is a must. Beach is beautiful as well so swimwear is a must.
Get a copy of the receipt for everywhere you go. Mistakes happen as it happened at the time of checkout to us. Review line by line and match it to your receipts. If you find a error go back to front desk, have it corrected and get a reprint of bill. We had 2 days of a really nice dinner which we expected and 3 days of burgers, fries, sandwiches,beer, nachos, pizza etc and finished at about $700 in food 5 days which was great for us. We spent more on gambling because we were prepared to gamble. 😊💥🙀
Remember no need to tip when Gratuity is included in everything. VAT tax is only for 3 years to help keep the bahamas afloat. It should be over during their election year. So I can understand what the country is doing but it can add up. Everyone pays it, even the residents. The water is safe but bring some bug spray as I bit a few times but now the hubs. I'm guessing it was all that perfume. 🤘.
Not sure what else I can type as I'm sorry grammar is off using my cell phone to type. Enjoy your vacation and make smart decisions.
Customer service here is number one by far. We have been many times and love it more each time! The rooms are fresh and clean and housekeepers always want to do more for you! Check in is great! The Royal Tower is our go to! The water park keeps the family together all day with fun things to do. Activities that you can pay extra for are just amazing! Then again....you don't really have to do them! There are so many things for kids to do!!!!! Lots of restaurants at the resort but you can always go downtown and eat there or Fish Fry for local vibes! The teen club is super fun when going on holiday dates......the movie theater is great for family fun. The casino isn't filled with smoke! The beach is right out the water park. We always opt for a private car from the resort to transfer from airport to hotel! Way easy!
This resort is way over priced and the quality is Mediocre. You have to pay gratuities for everything, even for items that you never got help with. This is one of those places you visit once and kinda say, “I did it, and I will never go again.” Wish it was better. The water in my tower went out and I had to use drinking water to wash my hands. Practically everyone that worked there had an attitude, were unprofessional, or acted like they wanted to be somewhere else. It was not a pleasant place to be when you were interacting with staff. The only nice staff members were life guards. I have gone to many places in the Caribbean and the Bahamas cannot compare to the other countries. Dominican Republic is way better and the food was great. The Virgin Islands were also better. I would think twice about the Bahamas when looking for relaxation. The Atlantis resort has outdated rooms and will charge you so much money for everything. Not worth it. Even for the water park. You can find better parks probably close to home in your own state or country. Watch out for sneaky cab drivers. They work with the direction crews outside the airport. Follow the signs and get a taxi there. Speak about the charges upfront. So it’s clear. Take care all!!
Stayed in the Royal East tower, 5th floor. The room was dirty on day 1, with an old candy wrapper and some plastic clothing tags on the floor. The tub and sink drains were extremely slow. I notified the front desk/guest services about the problems, but they were not resolved during the trip despite notifying them over and over again. I could not change room due to it being a holiday weekend and they were fully booked -- at least that is what they said.
As a matter of fact, the next day I found cookie crumbs on the carpet -- clearly the maids didn't care to clean the carpet, only to make it dirtier.
They also stopped giving me coffee packets for the coffee machine.
The only bonus is that the toilet didn't have any problems throughout the stay.
We stayed at the Atlantis for 6 nights . Sanchea Knowles from the resort call center went out of her way and got me an entire container of Maxwell coffee and creamer (bc I didn’t like the Starbucks coffee that the hotel offered in the room) Sanchea not only went out of her way to get it , but she personally delivered it to my room and refused to take a tip! Very seldomly do I come across such great customer service !
