Cove has great potential when up and running A review of The Cove Atlantis
we got home last night after 13 nights stay at the cove.we arrived in their first week and expected the worst we were booked at royal towers but saw website in jan and upgraded not realising that we would be among the first to stay there B A led me to believe it was open already only found out after booking changed.
First let me tell you i am a fussy madame we stay at one and only in Maldives Kanaharu & st Geran Mauritius Dubai Royal Mirage & Breakers in Palm Beach on our summer hols to Disney. we have 2 boys 8 & 10 so i know good .we were met at front desk by a very nice lady named Shebonne who took us to our room it was not ready they had not even taken wrapper of matresse she imediatly comp'ed us dinner at their restaurant Mosiac with out me having a chance to complain. It is by far the coolest buffet restaurant i have seen the food was very good lovely sushi .Now turn down was nearly never done & the maids to do the rooms are the most hopeless bunch they do the least possible do not wash dirty glasses cups never made up boys beds they let down the hotel big time you come back to your room late with v tired kids & have to hunt them down in the end night 4 we moved to room with 2 qeen beds . The adult pool not open beach bar not open they had to dig up main pool & re lay cement but we came back to letter in our room on day 3 giving us3 free nights they know they are in a bad way & have opened too early.The main pool over looks the construction not nice request a room with view of Alantis & you will not have to see this mess .Our main complaint was they are not properly up and running and should not be charging full whack yet when all is up & running it will give you a cool Miami vibe hotel on the edge of fantistic complex for kids. Every night we walked to Marina village (great atmosphere) got boys ice cream listened to music at Bimini Rd then we would often eat at bar in Nobu situated in casino after walk around the Dig which we all enjoyed . Oh the manta ray is being released in to the sea in june he is beautiful.
The new iazy river is nothing but really fast at some points.New rides are excellent .Do contact me for more info .Florance the manager helped us with our complaints she as was Shiobane were very good .If you are bored of Disney for kids & want something glam for yourselves this is going to be it service is i think down partley to the fact that you are still in the Carribean great service in Dubia but now they really do have construction going on. Will post photos soon but am very jet lagged
