The Coral at Atlantis

Bahamas, Caribbean

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.

We were unable to sleep with the constant booming coming through the windows and walls. We left a plate from room service at ten AM. it was still there 24 hours later. We left the hotel early so we could get some sleep. Save your money and stay somewhere else. You can visit the hotels on a day pass. Read less

I'll start by saying I am a luxury traveler. I used to frequent Atlantis often and stayed at the Cove. I have not been in 5 years. Because I went with my toddler daughter and saw "newly renovated" on the website for the Coral, I decided against staying at the Cove--mistake.

I'll start by saying I am a luxury traveler. I used to frequent Atlantis often and stayed at the Cove. I have not been in 5 years. Because I went with my toddler daughter and saw "newly renovated" on the website for the Coral, I decided against staying at the Cove--mistake. If this hotel is "newly renovated", I would HATE to see what it looked like before! The paint is fresh (kinda), but...bathtub was peeling, shower head was badly rusted, shower curtain was moldy, and NO shower gel--only bar soap. I don't think I've ever stayed at a hotel that did not include body wash?? It smells old, carpet in hallway is old. A lizard fell when I opened the curtain one morning. They had to come and spray for ants. Floor was not mopped or swept daily (sand still on floor), bathtub was not either (hair still in shower--test). If you are not picky, this hotel is fine. If you are used to staying at places like The Rosewood, Ritz Carlton, W, etc., I'd advise to choose someplace else. On the bright side, water park was fun. Everyone was nice. Dinner reservations were easy to make. View was good (I booked a water view room). Read less

Don’t hesitate to book the coral at Atlantis. There is absolutely no downside. Everyone was super friendly and helpful. Our double water front room was spacious and view was great. The location is perfect. Easy access to all Atlantis has to offer!

Sadly, this was the worst vacation we ever took. Granted, it was Christmas week, which is notoriously crowded and expensive. Where to begin.... Hotel: had a basic room with two beds. Room was anything but luxurious and had few amenities. It felt dated but at least we had a large terrace. Very expensive and could have stayed at the Four Seasons in Hawaii for the same price. Lobby and common areas always crowded. Water Park: fun for the kids. Had crappy weather but they still went on the slides and such. Outdoor areas: dated and old feeling. The pools were average and kids and huge groups of people were everywhere. Beach was nice but couldn’t enjoy because of the weather. We didn’t do any of the experiences because I couldn’t bear to spend another penny. We also got to experience hoards of people coming onto the property from nearby docked cruise ships. Very tacky. Gym: small for the size of the resort. Due to bad weather the gym was overcrowded and hot every day. They should have multiple gyms on the property. Casino & Shops: basically, a smaller, less nice version of Las Vegas. Dining: other than one or two slightly above average meals for dinner, the other eateries, cafes, restaurants were horrible. Lobby ice cream place had a few choices of snacks. Outdoor pool cafes were awful. Painfully slow service, disgusting food (they actually open bags of Lay’s potato chips to service with lunch that costs $25.) and - you guessed it- extremely overpriced. I actually skipped meals and just ate a protein bar a few times. Drinks were about $13 each. Other dinners were very crowded and food and service just ok. Service: overall it was average. Nothing stood out to me. The resort is so big that the staff just seemed annoyed and overwhelmed most of the time. Usually, when someone was nice they were looking for a tip. Taxi drivers also just ok. Some were sketchy. Certainly a disappointment. I left feeling like I just wasted a LOT of money. Will never go back to Atlantis. Read less
