Don't believe everything you read A review of Atlantis - Coral Towers

I been reading reviews and just visited the Atlantis and stayed in the Coral towers. We had a few problems just like you would anywhere else but having the waterpark, ocean and good weather overcame any faults.

Issues:

*The rooms are just basic in the Coral what you are paying for is the experience of the Bahamas and Water features

*The fire alarm went off 3 nights in a row.

*On the lazy river (which have waves that makes it not so lazy) my wife got tumbled over and lost the locker key. This was a $50.00 mistake. I talked to several employees and no one was willing to help since we signed the waiver for the locker... so be cafeful.

*It is $22.00 per person the leave the island via plane to help pay for the airport security.... so do not gamble all of your money.

*15% gratuity on everything. (example.. Teen club $15.00 when the bill arrived it was $18.00.. bring lots of money)

Comments:

Any time we called for anything someone would call us back and make sure the issue was handled. Food by the pool in between the new waterslides and the Cove had $28 lunch for 4 meal and a beautiful view of the ocean. Sharebites has a side place to order and you can get OK prices and the refills are free... or at least we kept getting free refills. When you are going back to your rooms for the day I recommend that you grab some pool towels and keep them for the next morning so you can secure a nice place by the pool or lazy river.... worked great for me. Also we checked a softside wheeled cooler on the plane and I went across to the markets and bought snacks and beverages to help save some money. Most of the nights we ate outside of the resort. Took cab one night and walked the others. You need to be in OK shape for this resort... a lot of walking and stairs are everywhere. Did not see any elevators except for the rooms. This resort is not for any couch potatoes!!! Maybe they are the ones writing the bad reviews. This is a very KID friendly resort. They visited the team club a few nights and had a blast and of course all of the water features. They will not be disappointed. If you need a quality on time driver use the guy we did (Godfrey Simms - Try a Google search with his name and the word "Bahamas" the guidelines for this site does not allow me to give you his info... sorry!!! ). On the night we went out to eat off the resort we ended up at the Ocean Club and you can use your resort key to purchase drinks or eat. It was nice very quaint and no kids running around. One last note: Beware of renting watersports from the people on the beach because of insurance issues. Some US insurances do not cover you unless you are traveling to another country on business.
