The Coral at Atlantis

Nassau, Bahamas

Virgin rating

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'm writing this while still at the resort. This is our first time and we didn't realize this place is basically Disneyland of the Caribbean. I use to swanky, exclusive adult focused resorts and this is the exact opposite. There are hoards of unsupervised kids everywhere. Crying and screaming in the lobby, near the pools, on the beaches...they are everywhere. There are no adult only spaces to escape the noise. This place is massive. And it is massively crowded. Too many people packed in one place. Getting from place to place on the property requires navigating a maze of sidewalks and long walks while pushing through an unending flow of people. Everything is unnecessarily expensive compared to other islands in the Caribbean. 5/5 customer service. All staff interactions have been great. They're the highlight of the trip. Bottomline: If you're a group of adults looking for a fun getaway to hangout around other adults don't stay here. Search out an adult only or adult friendly resorts. Read less

As a family, we’ve vacationed at Atlantis almost annually since my son was 6. We’ve stayed at the comfort suites outside of Atlantis, beach tower, coral and the royal. This review is of Atlantis as a whole. The pros - 1. Great water park - rides themselves are stuff you can elsewhere, but landscaping (the aquarium, tubing through shark tank) is out of this world 2. Property is beautiful, especially the Dig, a built in aquarium 3. Service of some staff is exceptional (but see con below) 4. Lots of activities The cons 1. With some exceptions (see 3 above), service can be horrible. for example, a lift operator refused to let my 8 year old ride on the lift with the stroller. She had a very nasty attitude (“life is for stroller”). Had to ask her if she wanted my 8 year old to go up by herself while rest of us rode up. It was bizarre. Had to threaten to call manager. 2. Nasty security belittle is because my 2 year old ran up to a slot machine and tried to grab one of the balls (“it’s not a Tonka toy”). Like seriously? Too much to expect a polite “sir can’t have kids play on the slots” or something - too much to ask for a place I’m playing $500 night for???? 3. Everything is so gosh darn expensive. Think amusement park prices. Like $7 for slice of cheese pizza… 4. With price, you’d expect food to be spectacular but with some exception (pizza is actually quite good), food was generally mediocre. And no option. However if you are willing to leave the resort, there are some quite delicious options at much more reasonable price (no surprise here). 5. Safety issues. Not major, but little things like water tubes not filled with air (not so good when going on rapids with rocks), catching one ride attendant nodding of to sleep, no real enforcement of some safety rules (pretty sure I saw a baby in the rapids rivers and no life guard bothered to intervene), etc. 6. Rooms are undergoing renovation but none of the places I stayed felt worth what I paid (in contrast to many other places I’ve been to in Carribeans) 7. Half resort is in renovation (in a beach area) 8. Rides randomly closing even on busy days and no one able to explain why Some tips 1. Venture outside the resort. Are some scary looking dudes and homeless people but they’re harmless and the food gets quite better once you cross the bridge 2. Bring ton of sunscreen and big spray. Especially sunscreen. The sun is no joke here even in cloudy days. Read less

Watch out for Atlantis. Someone charged our room $3k at 2 different nightclubs and Atlantis is not responding to me. I have tried to get a bill for over a week and am getting the run around from their QASR Department. Very shady place. I am not sure how they allowed someone to use my room number without my card but they did. Terrible… Read more

my wife and I went to atlantia for anniversary with thoughts of bringing family with us next time. The cost of the food for two people equal the price of the room per night. better to go to all inclusive hotel.
