Nice resort, Food was way too expensive plus automatic 10% VAT and 15 % gratuity at takeout counters. US tipping culture is ridiculous. 15% tip for handing me a hamburger and fries in a bag. WHY?

We very much enjoyed our stay at the reef on the Atlantis property. Everything was first class and the people of the Bahamas are so kind and helpful. We especially enjoyed our time at the beach and our tour by boat around Nassau and our stop at Rose Island.

Beautiful room with gorgeous views. Many pools and slides, beautiful beaches and gorgeous marine animals! Ultimate trainer for a day was a blast. Also had great experience at the kids night club.
Image of the Tripadvisor rating Still ok but need a facelift asap

Needs updating. Basically unchanged since the 90s. The cheaper alternative to the Cove which is 98% identical.
