The Royal at Atlantis

Nassau, Bahamas

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 has 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 loved Atlantis. Everything was very clean. Check-in was quick and easy although check ahead of time what requirements you have. We were a group of 7 with 3 different rooms and all had different holds for our cards because we all booked differently. I booked through a casino offer from Atlantic city and it was very easy although I did have certain requirement to meet to complete my offer. I loved exploring the property. the beach was fabulous. the different pools were great as we could chose were we wanted to go based on our mood. Every meal I had was delicious. We had no children with us but I saw so many families. We stayed in the Royal West Tower which wasn't connected to the main tower so it was a bit quite which was great for us. The food was expensive but not more than the expected vacation prices. There were limited fast food options but everything I ate was worth the money spent. We went mostly during the week but it did get very busy on Friday night. I didn't experience any long lines or waits the entire time I was there so for so many people, it never felt too crowded. There as no real nightlife but the casino was fun each night and had a great bar with good music. I did however miss the Caribbean feel since more of the music was top hits. Read less

This hotel was very disappointing, the staff was not friendly, it was very costly and they charged tons of additional fees, the room was outdated, excursions were over priced with poor staff, many of the restaurants were closed even though the website said open daily, things closed early, the staff was not knowledgeable!

Atlantis beauty never disappoints. The rooms are amazing and the staff is always friendly. In a short 5 hours we can be on the most beautiful beach and turquoise waters of the Bahamas. Our happy place!

We pulled up to the Atlantis and was excited to get checked in. After checking in, we walked over to our room at the Royal Tower west. We opened the door and was in shock of how filthy and outdated the room was. The bathroom has a tub/shower combo (OUTDATED) with an old corroded towel rack. The grout on the floors and shower were disgusting. The beds were worn and dipping in the center. The furniture was so old/worn/scratched. Some of the plugs were not working. The carpet was old and dirty. The toilet was not clean on the inside or the outside. It had a nasty dirty ring inside it. We told the maid when he knocked on our door but on our return it was still DIRTY! The bedskirts, room decor, bathrooms and furniture were sooooo outdated. They ought to be ashamed providing rooms of this nature to hardworking individuals like myself. The rooms look nothing like the pictures on the website!!! Beware!!! The only positives about the room was the view from our floor and the hot water. At check-in, they give you a water bottle to refill around the property. I never used it because it smelled gross and there was nothing to clean it with. It needed more than hot water. The water dispenser on our floor didn't work. The restaurants are OVERPRICED and charge an automatic gratuity. Your best bet would be to go offsite and eat in the Fish fry area. It will cost a taxi ride of $17 each way but you will get more for your money than you will at the Atlantis. Read less

We finally made our journey to Atlantis! Walking through the beautiful doors into the Royal Tower and seeing that amazing lobby, provided a fantastic beginning to our escape. The staff members were very friendly and welcoming, each offering assistance with any information that we needed. Our room was similar to other hotel rooms that we've stayed at. The room was clean, had two double beds, had sliding balcony doors that provided an amazing view of the resort and the ocean. It was nice to be able to open the doors and let the breeze and fresh air in. We did have some issues with getting warm/hot water before 8:30 a.m. in the mornings. This was the only blemish. There is a nice variety of food/restaurant options. We ate at Olives twice; be sure to ask for outdoor seating. It's very nice to sit and look out over the marina and the beautiful yachts was so enjoyable. If you like to play slot machines be sure to ask about the new reward club member perks. They also have free slot tournaments at 11:00 a.m. Th-Sun and there were drawings on Sat. night that included free cruises being given away. We loved walking around the grounds and easily got over 10,000 steps each day. We will definitely go back to Atlantis. Read less
