The Royal at Atlantis

Nassau, Bahamas

Virgin rating

The hotel

Throwing you into the full Atlantis experience, The Royal is as legendary as the myths that inspired and infuse them. The architecture, the artwork, the adventures — each have a cheeky nod to the Lost City of Atlantis, but the well-dressed rooms and suites are a little less kitsch, coming with French or full balconies and views over the terraces, water, or harbour. Their spot on Atlantis Paradise Island puts you right by Atlantis Casino and at the heart of the world’s largest outdoor ‘marine habitat’ — with 14 lagoons and more than 50,000 aquatic residents, from sharks to barracuda. The island’s other fabled fun’s yours for the taking too, whether its experiencing rides or slides at the 141-acre Aquaventure waterscape; snorkelling the ‘ruins’ at Atlantis; or kicking back at one of its 21 restaurants and 19 bars.

I have to review our amazing trip for a family of 5 to Atlantis Bahamas, and our stay at the Royal, This is our first time staying here and we couldn't be happier, We required 2 rooms because we had a family of 5 with 3 children under 12, After being let down by another nearby hotel not within the Atlantis group, we drove over to the Royal and were greeted by Adina at the reservations desk, Adina helped us find 2 amazing connecting rooms with a spectacular view! We were blown away by the details within this hotel and resort, so much detail and quality were put into this, the water park was spectacular, the slides for us and our kids were mind blowing, this type of resort will never be built again, It has an aquarium actually built into the whole resort, all the way over to the Coral there are underground tunnels and amazing features, people who review this place in anyway other than a 5 have to step back and actually think about how incredible this place is, our children had such an amazing experience, the beaches were so nice, the quality of the water, the snorkelling right on site were spectacular, the staff are extremely friendly, the cleanliness was obvious, water bottle filling stations everywhere. The food is also amazing, yes it is highly priced, and that should be expected, we toured around to various local grocery stores as well and you see that the prices of food overall in the Bahamas are expensive, people have to remember this is an island, shipping is extremely expensive and that is reflected in the prices, I think overall it is incredible value overall, don't expect this to be a budget vacation it is not, it is a place to take in enjoy, prepare for. I can't say enough positive things about this place. We rented a car but it definitely wasn't necessary, there is no need to leave the property if you don't want to, We were there for 4 night and 5 days which seemed perfect, we could have maybe stayed for 5 but our kids were exhausted after 4 nights! Thank you to the staff, to Sol the visionary who created Atlantis! If it weren't for him this magical place wouldn't exist! Read less

The hotels at the Atlantis Bahamas are still practicing old fashioned hospitality. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. Happy to help. Highly recommend The Cove, Seaglass, Seafire Grill and Fish restaurants. Play with the sea lions is a definite!
