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.

We stayed for 5 nights at the Royal, check in was smooth although we did arrive at 5pm so had no issues getting our room. Room was very old and out dated so we went back down to reception and asked to change rooms to the recently updated section, this was agreed at no extra cost but not available until next day so we had 1 night in the “old room”, carpets were tired, bathroom was poor and in massive need of an update! Bed was comfy however and it was clean. Holiday started next day in our new shiny room with ocean view on 14th floor. Food was very expensive and unless you go to one of the proper restaurants the quality was basic. Hot dog and chips around £12/15 and pool food. Cocktails- £10 ish and the ones in the cocunut and pineapple were £20!! Eeek! But the aquarium and the water park kept us busy for full time we were there and the beach was beautiful too! A massive resort and we regularly got lost. Would expect a family of 4-5 to spend a small fortune? We were 2 adults and felt exhausted by the food and drink costs. Best thing for breakfast was the point (all the way over other side of harbour ) or walking out of resort to dunking donuts, for good coffee and snack. A few places were closed which was disappointing for food and drinks but understand as hotel was only30-40% full capacity? We discussed how horrendous it would be if at full capacity as would expect large queues at the water park etc. staff were pleasant but slightly robotic and guest services/ reception were border line rude. Dolphin experience was fab too but the extra charge of $18 for a guest to take photos was silly! V commercial from start to finish We had a great time all in all weather was amazing and we enjoyed the beach, Aquarium and water park. Would advise shorter stay maybe 3 nights would have been enough as we then flew to Exumas and stayed at sandals which was much more relaxing and all inclusive Def one to experience and an iconic stay but wouldn’t rush back as more of the Bahamas to experience and visit Read less

We checked in for 2 nights during a two week stay in the Bahamas. We only lasted 1 night, it didn’t feel like I was on a Caribbean island, more like I was in an overpriced plastic nightmare. The water park and aquariums were incredible, but this can all be seen in a day trip. The food and drinks are ridiculously overpriced and substandard. The staff are very robotic, still friendly enough but no personal touch. Our suite was nice, view was terrible, but the mattress was covered in blood splatter. We flagged this issue up to reception who just shrugged her shoulders like she didn’t care. When we checked out a day early we were not even asked what the problem was, all they were worried about was getting our money. Back at Breezes resort now and much happier!! Worth a day trip not a lot else. Read less

As a platinum Marriott guest, I was placed in room 355-3 room was full of dust, stains on the wall, MOLD!, baseboards full of dust which instantly brought my sinus and made me sick after I called ahead of time to make a request to please ensure that I have a clean room. Now after being extremely jet-lag from traveling over 24 hrs just to come to relax at “The Atlantis” this is what I am faced with. Not happy. And to top it off the assured me that a manager would check the new room and now this sliding door won’t close which triggers the ac. What next. I will away for management to reach back out to me to see if they can change my experience. I expect better with the amount of money I spent. Read less

From the moment we entered the royal, we felt like Royalty. To a person the staff was warm and welcoming. Our room was spacious well appointed and very comfortable ! As far as amenities go, where do I begin ? Pools everywhere, many with waterfalls, crystal clean water. And poolside service of food,and beverages ! No matter where we dined the food was excellent, and the service world class. We touched the dig and loved the aquarium, when we discovered we could snorkel the aquarium we immediately signed up. This was a breathtaking experience and I'll never forget it ! The beach was immaculate, and again service directly to your beach chaise. The water park has something for everyone from jaw dropping water slides to a rapid river ride that was a hit with everyone ! Only downside to this vacation was that we had to eventually come home !
