Atlantis - Beach Tower
Travel Blogs from Paradise Island
During August of 2013 me and my two best friends, a long with my mother and my aunt boarded the Carnival Dream and set sail to the Caribbean. Our very first stop was the beautiful island of Nassau, Bahamas. The second you set foot on the port of Nassau the first thing you hear are steel drums playing the pivotal anthem of the Caribbean and the …
So the Bahamas today!!! Only just over an hour flight to Nassau from Orlando. The flight was on time but we had to wait over half an hour for our bags to come out - island time.... We arrived to a very very big Atlantis. Place has a number of hotel blocks and so many pools, aquariums and water slides! We went for a walk through it all (about 20 …

The details in design and the abundance of marine creatures is something to awe about. The kids ran from water basin to the next yelling out the sea creatures on display. Atlantis scientist and researchers take care of the animals and study them while they are in ...

Joanne and I wore our shoes (remembered this experience from previous 3 day short Bahamas trip). We walked on the rugged rocks and looked out at the crystal blue water until we found a sandy beach. We noticed some abandoned chairs and brought them out to the beach and relaxed to the sound of waves.

Historical Traveler Reviews Atlantis - Beach Tower Paradise Island
We loved the Atlantis and nicknamed it Las Vegas in the Bahamas. The beautiful architecture and over the top interiors reminded us of the beautiful marble laden lobbies of the Bellagio, MGM Grand, and the Venetian in Las Vegas.
I went to Atlantis with my family in July, expensive but worth it. Amazing food, average rooms, but the attention to detail in the design is outstanding. The aquariums are great as well. The only bad aspect of the resort are the peddlers on the beach, "hair braided lady" or "jet skis" constantly interrupting a nice relaxing day on the beach. So many activities, long weekend is perfect or a full week. Casino pays well during the week, but on weekends you lose.
The one-dollar toll to get on the island should have been a tip off. Although $1 is not much they quickly made up for lost time. The buffet was OK but for $30 per person I expected a selection at least as good as our local river boat casinos.
At least once a year my wife and I take a vacation leaving the kids behind. For the past few years we have taken cruises for our vacation and loved each of them. During one of our cruises, we stopped at Nassua and saw the Atlantis from port. We visited the Atlantis while in port and we were only able to get into the lobby and casino part of the resort. We were unable to get into the areas where the pools were located. What we did see was amazing and we decided to go back.
I visited Atlantis in Feb.2002 and stayed at the Royal Towers(Most $$). Although I loved the beauty of the resort, the rooms were not exceptionally fancy for the $$ per nights stay. Also, people can be heard above you, water running more than the average upscale hotel. I wanted to have a massage also and within the 4 days I was there no appointments were available(even 4 a manicure!!) A hint-I was told to book your spa treatments immediately when making your travel plans months before. Same for the upscale restaurants-we were lucky because they accomodated us because we said it was our anniversary. I found the staff to be friendly and professional. The casino was great with a disco inside,free drinks,and achance to dressup there because they have a dress code. I plan on visiting again and recommend it highly.
Atlantis Paradise Island is great!
My husband, 11 year old daughter and I just returned yesterday from a 5 night package at Atlantis Paradise Island. The resort is incredible, absolutely breathtaking with so many things to see and activity choices. We stayed at the oldest Beach Tower and the room was acceptable. They did have maintenance problems with the elevator and door keys that would not always work. There were numerous restaurant choices and we found the buffets to be the best value and quality. Avoid Murrays Deli (terrible service) and the "gourmet" restaurant Dune (a big farce, pseudo chic... although a beautiful setting at the near by Beach Club.) Get up early to save a beach chair with umbrella, and you're set. All things considered we had a wonderful time and will return.
Paradise. Best vacation ever, and have been to many resorts and islands. Rooms beautiful, immaculate. Breathtaking views. Coral towers waterview was wonderful, could see entire resort, pools, beach, ocean. Something for all ages, lots of families and children, but couples too. So many pools and slides and fun things to do. You have to see it to believe it! Can't even describe it all, it is awesome! Restaurants all delicious food. We had gourmet meal plan, well worth it. Got into all restaurants without waiting. Everyone very friendly and couldn't do enough for us, even though tip is added to all checks already, that did not affect the excellent service. Our family ranged from 4yrs. old to 78 and all had a great time. If you can't have fun here then you can't have fun anywhere.
I wouldn't go there again of they paid me!
I wouldn't waste my money on this resort again if they paid me!!!
My husband and I went to this resort last summer with another couple for a summer vacation. We had stayed at the sister resort in South Africa so we anticipated another wonderful stay at a SunCity Destination. Unfortunately we found the staff extremely rude and lazy. The whole resort was overpriced. We spend another $1500 in 7 days just on the basic food and beverage. The casino is tight and after 7 days of straight gambling, my husband got nothing comped. Pools were so crowded, someone in your party had to be down there at 9am just to get a lounge chair. This place is not worth the money!!!

Had an amazing time at this beautiful chic resort. Restaruants were amazing, pools and beaches beautiful. Really enjoyed the water slides, Marine life and The Dig which is a vision of the legendary city of Atlantis would look like if it is found. I highly recommend this resort
