Staying @ the Royal Towers at the Atlantis, Bahamas was a wonderful experience! My family & I visited the resort and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay! We were assigned room 7512 in the East Tower. The room had a beautiful view of the resort and the beach! (Make sure to request a room on the higher floors. The views are breathtaking)!
This doesn't really have anything to do with next year's Epic Journey, but we took a trip down to the Bahamas this past week for some R&R and to celebrate Holly's birthday. 6 days at the Atlantis resort wasn't the kind of "roughing it" experience we'll likely encounter next summer, but it sure was a good time. Mostly hanging out by the pool, …
Craig's father vacations here frequently and allows us to tag along! :)
fun time ... saw the Doobie Brothers and Bill Cosby in private concerts.
Really losing on the sleeping game. Last night I met a few people at the bar in the Atlantis lobby that SAS took over. Speaking of Atlantis, this place is really incredible. Apparently, there is a Prince renting out a section of the Royal Towers for 25,000 US a night. He has his own personal entourage including Butlers, Maids and Cooks. Madre y Yo …

Historical Traveler Reviews Atlantis - Royal Towers Paradise Island
Was really looking forward to our trip to Atlantis, but was disappointed when we actually went. We booked a waterview room in the Royal Towers ($550 per night) and when we got to our room, it was on the second floor overlooking a massive dirt construction site, with no view of the water at all. It took a number of stressful phone calls to the front desk to get them to move us, and no apology for putting us in that room. Although the hotel itself is quite lovely, it is much too large and going anywhere is a long walk. Went on a very crowded week and had to get up at 7:30 every morning to try to snag a chair at the pool. The biggest surprise of all to me was the demeanor of the hotel employees. They did not try to be pleasant to guests at all, and if you try to correct them on something or ask to sit at a different table, for instance, they became quite rude and unpleasant. My guess is that it is because the tip is included in all bills, so there is no reason to provide good service. Would recommend that families consider staying in the Beach or Coral Towers rather than the Royal Towers. Although the Royal Towers is newer, they do not have balconies and the Royal Towers is much further away from all the action. The Beach and Coral Towers have very nice pools, waterslides and a lovely lazy river pool that the kids really enjoy. The teen club is also located in that area and our daughter spent every night there and made good friends. The vacation was not horrible, but it was not worth the price and was a bit stressful.
Save your money and go elsewhere
Their first answer is always no. They lost our reservation....twice. They nickel and dime you every chance they get. The pool was disgustingly dirty. You had to pay-off the pool boys to get a seat near the pool or the beach or you had to wake up at 7 am and go a put a book on a chair. The food was average at best. The aquarium was good. I would rather go to miami or dominican republic than go here. If you're from the north east I can sum it up this way, It's like great adventure in the carribean, crowded, dirty, long lines and overpriced.
We spent our honeymoon last summer at the Atlantis. I was actually very nervous about the resort having read several negative reviews. However, once we arrived we were blown away. We were upgraded from the Coral Towers to the Royal Towers and our room was very lovely. It was clean, comfortable and had a great view.
We spent 5 days and 4 nights at Atlantis in the Beach Tower, the lowest priced rooms at this sprawling very overpriced complex. We did the gourmet dining plan and glad we did. However, the gratuity keeps climbing (not included in any plan)as you choose the better meals on the menus. Drinks are not included in the plan and are terribly expensive. The gourmet restaurants are all 5-star and super good with excellent service and hospitality. In fact, every employee on the premises was very courteous and helpful. Forget about gambling in the casino....the odds on winning at the slots are miniscule...no paybacks for sure. The beach sand is made up of finely-ground limestone and is very abrasive on bare feet, so be sure to wear sand shoes or some kiind. The beach is also very short and has a constant flow of annoying locals trying to sell you something at very high prices. The pools are excellent and the aquariums are world-class and a must see. The rooms are just average and very overpriced. However, the mattress was excellent. The local water is awful so you must buy bottled water at $5.25 for 48 ounces. Bring snacks in your luggage if you don't want to pay $5 for a bag of pretzels or $4 for a Mounds bar. So, we did it once, but never again. Overall, we had a good time.
I cant even explain it!!!!
We arrived at the hotel and we were helped immediatly... i dont understand why people are complaining, i think the only reason is that they didnt PLAN thier trip. We e-mailed the hotel and planned our whole trip.
When we checked in the people were very helpfull. The kids had an amazing time and we all relaxed! I really think that the people who complained expect too much and are never going to be satisfied... this hotel gives everyone what they want (ITS WORTH IT!!!)
What eles is there to say but AHHHHH AMAZING hehe
My husband and I stayed at the Atlantis this past week for five nights and have very mixed feelings about it. It is truly beautiful. The marine habitats are spectacular and the grounds are gorgeous. Pools, slides, lazy river are all a lot of fun. But what is it with this place? First of all, it is HUGE! Be prepared to have to walk quite a distance when you go to do anything, even if you are in the Royal Towers. If you are in the Beach Tower, it will take you 20 minutes at least to walk over to the Mayan Temple and the Royal Towers where most of the big stuff is located. Secondly, the service is appaulling. I do not mind spending big bucks at a hotel where the service is worth it, i.e. a Four Seasons or Ritz. But this place is highway robbery for the service level. A 15% gratuity is added to every bill, even if you are just getting a coffee. They act as though you don't even exist. There are exceptions but we found this to be true the majority of the time. And be prepared for enormous crowds. It was not bad on Wednesday and Thursday, but Friday thru Sunday you can barely even walk thru the place. And forget about getting a pool chair unless your down at the crack of dawn. Overall, this is a place worth seeing but there are many other places I would rather stay. We get down to the Caribbean normally two or three times a year and this IS NOT a Caribbean experience. More like Disneyworld with a beach.
I just returned from a 4 night stay at the Royal Towers at the Atlantis Resort. Having read some negative reports, I was a little apprehensive. But I have to say, my experience was completely positive. I had a wonderful time. My room was very nice, with a beautiful view, and was sparkling clean. The grounds and pool area were incredible, and very well kept. There were plenty of empty lounge chairs around the pools.
i have stayed at the atlantis hotel, twice now. this past summer we stayed for six days, and five nights. and i think the hotel was the most beautiful one i've ever seen. the food may be pricey, but it's delicious. the employees are so nice, and thoughtful. there's always something to do there, it's almost impossible to be bored. once you stay here, you'll never find a hotel closely compared to it, because it's impossible. The rooms are beautiful, as well as the architecture in the casino, and in the shopping areas. we only had one problem, but it wasn't even an inconvenience, our rooms weren't ready when we got there, and had to wait an extra half hour - forty five minutes. The pools are extravagant, it was never over - crowded. the beach was beautiful, no trash or litter all over the sand. you can ride bananna boats, and go tubing on the water, while being towed by a boat. that was enjoyable, i encourage you to try that!
We stayed at the Altantis Hotel, Royal Towers, between Christmas and New Year's this year. What a tremendous disappointment! While the hotel is expansive and the property spectacular, this over-prized, Las Vegas style mega-property is no more than a glorified Holiday Inn with exhorbitant prices! We were prepared to pay more to stay at the Atlantis during the ever-popular holiday week, but in exchange for paying nearly double the going rate, we expected a five star experience (our rooms started at $500 a night). Suffice it to say that the problems began at check in and continued throughout the duration of our stay.
