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 stayed at the Cove Atlantis with my husband and two little boys (7 and 4). the hotel is beautiful and the grounds are very well kept. we felt that it was within walking distance to everything (but we also don't mind walking). My kids had a blast using all the facilities. In my opinion the rest of the resort is very run down and needs to be upgraded big time - but my kids being kids didn't notice and had a great time. While I really like the Cove resort - I was not impressed with the staff and all the hidden fees. My son has a dairy allergy so we purchased coconut milk for him from the grocery store and requested a mini fridge. After bringing us a non working fridge we got another one and then at the end they wanted to charge us $100 USD plus tax AND TIP. I got so upset that i made them take out the charges - they never even told me about this cost until check out. The other thing I did not like was that the staff did not really do much and were not really friendly. Tip is included in EVERYTHING - so I felt like they didn't really work for anything. Over all my kids had a great time but next time we will go elsewhere - it just wasn't worth the price we paid for the service and cleanliness of the facilities.
The cove hotel is by far the best place to stay on paradise island. Rooms are awesome. Food on site is excellent. Make sure you get a high floor. We stayed on 18 and the views were amazing. Definitely be back
This hotel is amazing in every way. First class staff, accommodations, amenities. My daughter and I stayed five nights in the Cove. The oceanfront suite was spacious and clean and beautifully decorated. Housekeeping was as much or as little as you wish. Housekeeping staff were readily available if you need something, but otherwise responsive, came and went when we were out. The balcony in our suite was not big enough for chairs, so ask if you wish a larger balcony, as many of the balconies do have chairs. The view from the eighth floor was spectacular. There were many nice eateries-we especially enjoyed the Bahamian Club -the filet was super tender and the service friendly and excellent - we ordered from the Pris Fixe menu and it was the best value of the week. The adults-only pool at the Cove was our favorite leisure area, including the music, chairs, umbrellas, towels all complimentary. Food and drink delivered poolside. And the service staff there were so attentive and proactive to help in any way. There were massages available poolside. The landscaping was lush and tropical with many water features. A truly serene and relaxing getaway. We had stayed once before in another tower (Beach Tower) that I would not recommend.. the Cove was polar opposite and felt like heaven.
