How to Get There
We’ve stayed at the Atlantis and always enjoy ourselves the water park is so much fun you can’t beat it - kids must be in heaven. But if you’re after a relaxing adult luxury hotel look elsewhere.
On arrival we were told that about the new policy of passes to water park limited to number of nights you’re staying. Luckily Brendan kindly sorted us out with passes for the duration, which was very much appreciated as is the only reason we stay there!!
We noticed that to newbies there’s a distinct lack of information available and found ourselves emptying our knowledge to others so here are some tips -
Ask to stay in West tower, it’s so much closer to everything and if you’re super lucky your view will look out over the top of the aquarium!
If you want a cup of tea or coffee go to the Starbucks by the day visitor entrance!! It’s 1/3 price of the main cafe by the fish tank!
Get to the water park early ~10am. Don’t go to the main entrance and queue with the day visitors. Go outside past the swimming pool and along the beach you’ll get to a kiosk to pick up your wristband (hand them the blue tag thing).
Then get the free golf buggy shuttle, don’t get off at first water park stop. Go to next one ‘Neptunes’ you’ll find a quiet oasis (especially at top section up past the restaurant). There’s loads of beds, less children.
Rides - the queues will build up during the day so do the best ones first. The shark bite gets really busy so do that as early as you can. The storm was also a favourite of ours - can be hard to find but worth the hassle.
The Neptunes tower rides opens at midday, again go there early and there’ll be no queuing.
The wave rider is a new feature, it’s free to go on just go the locker area. Make sure you wear swim suit not bikini or it may come off!! Again it opens at 10am and no one goes on it in the morning. Hotel residents can book sessions at night (wish we’d known this in advance)
You can take a phone on the rides with you, buy a waterproof phone case before you go and put it round your neck.
Lockers are expensive and pointless, we find Dubai very safe.
Go to The Pointe for dinner - much cheaper that the Atlantis outlets and it’s a 10min 15DHS taxi under the tunnel. Loads of cuisine choices and fab view of the Atlantis at night lit up!
We have just left here and we had the most amazing holiday. The hotel is just like paradise and the service we received was amazing - nothing was too much trouble we also had the imperial club which was well worth it. Our room was very luxurious and was kept very clean by a gentleman called Sohail he was very polite and a true credit to the hotel. He also left us excellent towel animal displays in our room.
They advertise 10 AED Illy cafe credit included in the aquarium ticket but when you go to redeem the same they refuse to let you redeem saying that the system isnt working and that we should come back later.
