The Coral at Atlantis

Nassau, Bahamas

The hotel

Luxury in the Bahamas needn’t be off-limit to families. Built to bring all generations together, The Coral at Atlantis Paradise Island has re-opened after being re-designed and re-imagined with features, facilities, and fun for every age and stage of your crew. As well as the revamped rooms, with their balconies and tropical styling, and a sleek pool that’s more Miami than castaway island, The Coral adds decadent family touches like lollies at the swim-up bar and a gelateria in the lobby. Its setting on the island adds to the child-friendly feel, with Bahamian white sand beaches and Marina Village handily close. And you get access-all-areas to all the island’s dining venues and attractions, giving you something to thrill each member of your family — whether that’s plunging past shark-filled waters down the near-vertical Leap of Faith or splashing about in the Mayan-themed children’s water playground.

I give this property a "1" for the lack of amenities it provides. Pool was closed and the room was not resort quality. Also, the management couldn't care about my concerns. One of the worst customer experiences ever and I am a seasonal business traveler for 38+ years.
Image of the Tripadvisor rating Great stay! Everything cashless a bit expensive.

The kids absolutely enjoyed the waterpark. I loved the beach it was so clear and pretty. The rooms are not spectacular but they are acceptable. The highlight of the trip was the dolphin activity. The kids loved it. We spent some time on an island as well. You must experience the pig island at least once. Just be prepared for cost. Everything is a bit pricey. Especially the food. Our only problem was at check-in they had an error with the system and we couldn't check in. But Ashley was very polite and so upbeat she took us to our room. She was the only person we dealt with at the front desk. She was great at taking on our needs. Especially with dinner reservations. The restaurants did not have much availability (december was very busy so make sure reserve tables well in advance) but she made it work for out entire stay. We were travelling with a big group but were able to get into all the restaurants we asked for. She's the best. Although, the best food we had was off property at The Fry's. All in all excited to return. Read less

We stayed at the Coral Atlantis for 5 days right before Christmas. There is absolutely nothing wrong with this hotel itself. It is very clean and decorated very well. the rooms were bigger than average and very clean. We had a family of 4 in 1 room and basically just stayed in there to sleep. We paid additional for a water view which got as a few of the property and the tarred roof right below. We were aware that there would be a resort fee of around $59 per day but they did not tell us there was a $5 per person per room nightly fee that is given to the staff who cleans the rooms. We only had service 2 of the 5 nights but left a cash tip as we had 5 night service. It would have been nice if they told us but I'm not entirely sure these people that work there get their tips. I had talked to some locals who claimed they did not which is very sad as they all work very hard. The resort has it's own village where you can shop and eat. it is very secure and so is the property. If you are not staying on the premises or don't have a day pass from the cruise you can not wonder around through the grounds. The best place we ate was actually the Burger shack. We did pay $100 for 4 burgers, 1 fry, 1 onion rings, 2 drinks and 2 milk shakes but it was the best food we had there. A family of 4 can't eat in a regular restaurant for less than $200 add a couple drinks and you're close to $300. They do at 15% gratuity onto everything. We left extra cash when we had great service. 12% VAT tax on everything too because every item is imported to the Bahamas for them to sell. A frozen drink is a total of about $15 and has a good amount of alcohol. If you go off resort there are some good restaurants but by the time you pay for a taxi it works out to the same price. However the food is probably better off resort. We did try to go to Anthony's right outside the property but the waitress was extremely rude so we left. There is also a dunkin donut you can walk to for good coffee and breakfast. The starbucks had the best pricing for breakfast and coffee on resort. The grounds where beautiful and kept very well. There is ocean wildlife in almost all the pools and aquariums all over to look at. Dolphin Cay was very nice as well. As an adult, I did love the water park. They had the best lazy river and slides. The beach was very nice especially on the Cove side. You really need to walk around the entire property to see where you want to spend time. We did enjoy the Casino too. All in all it was a trip that we would probably only take once. Bring a lot of cash for tipping. You can get change at the Casino. Read less

We came to The Atlantis for 4 nights in January, booking a King Terrace View at The Coral. 2 weeks before we were emailed saying that the pool is under maintenance during our stay - one of the main attractions to this area of the resort for us. I called to ask if it was worth us moving to another area, as a couple in our 20s we didn’t want to be at the main family pools every day because of the water park and noise etc. I was assured we would have full access to every pool - on arrival, this wasn’t the case at all and we weren’t allowed at the only other adult pool at The Cove which is the only other equally as nice area without crappy plastic sunbeds. We had a leak in the ceiling of our bathroom, causing water to fall over the floor and we had to change rooms half way through our stay. We were given an upgrade but really that didn’t make us feel better about the other aspects that the resort lacked in. It was more inconvenient having to pack up and move really. We found it extremely expensive - $50 a head for breakfast - without coffee etc. $11 for a panini, $13 for 750ml bottle of water - 15% gratuity on take away items at ice cream and cafe stalls - so on so on. We went to Nobu for dinner one night, dressed up smart - and had to wait outside for 30 minutes with loads of people like cattle and others were dressed like they’ve just left the beach… I was approached by multiple local men on the resort beach - one trying to sell us drugs and another called me beautiful and blew a kiss at me - not really what you expect nor accept on private property. The service was pretty poor. Not to disrespect all the staff, but many were unhelpful and pretty miserable. We didn’t have hot water for our stay, even when telling the front desk every day and our room key broke every day and we had to be issued new ones. In general the resort is pretty run down, things were dirty and dated - the photos aren’t a true display. Lots of places / areas closed for maintenance and it just wasn’t at a standard we expected. Very disappointing, and wouldn’t return here. Read less

Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Coral and the related properties at Atlantis. Hotel room - Looked modern and refreshed. Definitely a mid century modern feel. The queen size beds were comfortable. The bathroom was a bit on the small size but overall was perfectly fine. My only (minor) gripe was a ceiling panel above the toilet that would open on its own almost every time I walked into the bathroom. It could be startling at times. As for housekeeping, they did a great job. The view was beautiful. While our room was not directly on the beach, we had some water views. We were directly above all the sea life pools where turtles and other animals were visible. And the waterfalls! They are quite soothing and create some nice white noise that helped me fall to sleep at night. Also, the sunsets are really something to behold! Front desk - Friendly and helpful. The beach - Loved it!! The water is the color you dream about. Just that perfect aqua blue. And even though it was December, the temps were war m enough to spend lots of time in the water. The food - There are lots of good choices, from the daily buffet located at the adjoining Royal hotel, to the Marina village which has numerous restaurants. We definitely ate very well. Loved the French restaurant Cafe Martinique (really wonderful) as well as the gelato restaurant located in the lobby if the Coral. However, all if this comes at a price (what else?) I haven't totaled it all up, but I would estimate our family of four spent at least $3000 on food during our six day stay. This is of course on top of the cost of the hotel and airfare, which was more than $5000. Unless you eat pizza or at Dunkin' Donuts every night, it's going to be an expensive trip. Know that in advance and you won't feel quite some bad (maybe.) The solace is you will have an amazing trip, in a beautiful location while helping out the locals who dearly needed tourists to return to the island after the initial wave of Covid. (The locals said it was BAD a year ago when there were no visitors at Xmas and huge competition just between the cab drivers for fares.) Read less
