When the guy next to you on the plane reveals he’s headed to the Bahamas for a pre-bachelor party weekend with the boys, don’t be surprised when you next see him and his buddies checking in at The Cove Atlantis, an Autograph Collection’s soaring, Jeffrey Beers-designed indoor-outdoor lobby. But while many guests are here for a bromantic offshore weekend or a carefree girlfriend getaway, you’ll also spot cool young families. The resort-within-a-resort sits on the edge of family-friendly Atlantis, making it a sophisticated choice for parents whose kids might demand instant water park access and dolphin-side swims, but who prefer for themselves clean-lined, loft-like suites.
Bed & Bath
The exclusive 22-story, 600-suite resort has made beachside indulgence its raison d’être. Every room, each at least 670 square feet, opens onto an ocean-facing balcony, and they all feature King or Queen beds positioned over sunken living areas, and huge spa-like bathrooms with double granite vanities, glass-walled showers and deep soaking tubs.
The one area that’s off limits to youngsters is Cain at The Cove, the adults-only “ultrapool” and beach club reserved exclusively for guests of the hotel. Here, DJs from New York, Miami and beyond spin pop, dance and chill-out tracks, the daybeds and butler-serviced cabanas fill up fast, and the women find that the best way to complete a bikini look is with a pair of stilettos. Expert dealers oversee outdoor gaming tables — a satellite of the 60,000-square-foot casino in the Atlantis main building — and the beach and ocean sit just beyond. After Cain closes, it’s on to tapas at the newly redone SeaGlass lounge. Over at Atlantis, meanwhile, there’s rock shrimp at Nobu, big bets in the casino’s high-limit zone and late nights at the nightclub, Aura. All of which makes for a certain Vegas-meets-South-Beach, “What happens at The Cove stays at The Cove” vibe.
In the Area
The resort offers a lengthy list of activities to keep guests busy on land and sea. Charter a boat for the day from International Yacht Collection, located at the dock master’s office in the Atlantis marina, and explore the surrounding sea and islands or hit the water with an aquatic encounter with rescued dolphins at Atlantis Dolphin Cay. Get beach-ready with a session with fitness guru Mikhail Barnett at the Mandara Spa Fitness Center, then shop for a new ensemble at Escape, The Cove’s on-site resortwear boutique. When you’re ready to relax, book a treatment at Atlantis Balinese-style Mandara Spa (we like the deep tissue massage).
How to Get There
We have stayed at The Cove around 9 times. Can definitely say it isn't what it used to be. Definitely in need of some maintenance, like the grout in bathroom at Indigo Suite was coming up & shade broken. Plus light in closet didn't work. The hallways and elevator area weren't cleaned all week. 1 night we didn't get turn down service so had to buy water and no clean towels. On the pluses: most staff very friendly & accommodating, seafire steakhouse was fabulous, grounds are impeccable. After going to Rosewood last year not sure I'll go back to Cove in future.
We ordered 2 hamburgers and 2 bloody mary's at the Sip Sip bar by the pool and bill was $90. Best to walk to the other hotels in the Atlantis resort to eat. Also, take the water taxi to straw market - there is a grocery store there where you can get some groceries to help with snacks. Do not ask taxi to take you to the grocery store - they will take you to the expensive one store in town where I priced a gallon drinking water with alcaline for $10.
The Cove is a beautiful hotel and service was great otherwise!
The room at the Cover was really awesome and very comfortable. Being adults only made it really great especially hanging out at the pool. Carey Turnquest the assistant Director of F&B has done a really great job with the food at the pool restaurants and Fish which is a really great restaurant. Edgar Sanchez the Asst General Manager is also doing a great job at Fish. Highly recommend staying at the Cover with all the benefits of being adults only.
I just returned from a great 3 night stay at The Cove. It was too short, Atlantis has so much to do at it. I booked my trip through Dream Makers Vacation Services. They are Atlantis Ambassadors and had some insider tips that made my trip very special. I stayed in room 16822, a Deluxe Ocean Suite which was beautiful. The view was incredible. The bed/mattress was heavenly, I slept better than I have in a long time (and I travel often). I spent 2 days at The Cove pool, which was fun. I even saw a few celebrities. Food and drink was outstanding, I just recommend checking your bill every day or two to monitor the charges (so they can adjust if needed). The beach at The Cove is lovely, I loved being on it during the early morning and around sunset-just gorgeous, My favorite restaurant was CASA D'ANGELO. Kevin was our server and was kind and attentive. In short, I am looking forward to returning soon. I recommend The Cove and had a wonderful stay.
After reading some of the reviews, I was a little skeptical, but, boy was that wasted energy! Upon arriving, the main entrance is one of the most stunning I've ever witnessed, and I've been lucky enough to have stayed at some very nice resorts. Everyone who worked there was extremely friendly, helpful and welcoming. Very discreet security makes guests feel very safe. The beach at The Cove is the crowning jewel of the resort. It is private, quiet, the ocean is such a gorgeous turquoise color, the lounge chairs are the best I've ever used. If you want to order drinks, they are attentive. We had a tendency to stay almost every night to watch the sunset, and even though the beach technically closes, no one made us feel like we had to leave. My husband snorkeled several times, and enjoyed it. I saw a sting ray while I was swimming, and many different fish, which was fun. Carlos, who managed the beach area was such a friendly person, and extremely accommodating. The room was beautiful, with a magnificent view of the ocean. The staff was quick to tidy our room, and did a great job the entire duration of our stay. The bed/pillows/robe/amenities were all top-notch, which is a great bonus. I would not hesitate to recommend this property! You have the best of all worlds - a private resort when needed, and they will shuttle you to the other resorts on the property when you want a little more action. (I even enjoyed a day going on the watersides/rides! It was a blast!) After we checked out and were waiting for our taxi, we had the best conversation with Darril. As we were heading to a different area of the island, he took the time to recommend some great choices for us. He even wrote down several suggestions for us, and we took him up on his advice, which was spot on. He was such a genuine guy, and most certainly a valuable employee. I can't wait to go back, and I hope I have another visit in my future!
