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.

I walked the entire property. The exterior is enchanted and beautiful. The staff is wonderful. My room was AWFUL! First, you should know this is a Marriott property. Had I known this I would have immediately requested an upgrade. The coral is old and in desperate need of repairs and DEEP CLEANING. My walls were disgusting. I am attaching picture from my room. If you are going to spend the cash, stay in the Cove or the Reef. The bed was like sleeping on a rock. Every morning at 6:30 they had a delivery truck that pulled into the convention area. I thought the alarm was going off very loud in my room. It was the trucks backing up. LThe walls are paper thin as well as the sliding glass doors. The thermostat looked like someone ran a glazed donut over it. You don’t have a deadbolt on the connecting room door, which is unsettling. Worst of all, the paint in the tub was peeling off and small chards were cutting my feet in the shower so I had to use a towel in the bottom of the tub to keep the paint off of my feet. I was so excited to check this place out and it was tremendously disappointing. I am shocked that Marriott hasn’t improved this property yet. Read less

We had a great trip to the Coral. The room was well decorated and we had plenty of room. It was always cleaned immaculately. Just something to be aware of - it was hit and miss between 4 and 7pm if you had hot water for a shower or not. The two vouchers a day for water bottles was great.

We had a great trip to the Coral. The room was well decorated and we had plenty of room. It was always cleaned immaculately. Just something to be aware of - it was hit and miss between 4 and 7pm if you had hot water for a shower or not. The two vouchers a day for water bottles was great. There is a little supermarket a couple of minutes walk from the hotel (off site) for extras. Location by the marina is great. Everywhere we ate was lovely. Portion sizes at Camp D’Angelo though are on the small side and extremely small for kids. If very hungry order the lasagne as that is enormous! Pack long sleeves for walking around inside the hotels and some of the restaurants. They really whack the AC up. Overall thoroughly recommend but to make the most of Atlantis your kids need to be 48 inches and over. Read less

We stayed here over the beach because it was supposedly upgraded. Our room was nothing special. The ceiling over the shower leaked, our keys never worked, it was boring looking. Bed was hard, and the hall super noisy so we never slept past 7. The coral pool is great. The gym is a full 1/2 mile from the coral. The virgils restaurant is too… Read more
We stayed here over the beach because it was supposedly upgraded. Our room was nothing special. The ceiling over the shower leaked, our keys never worked, it was boring looking. Bed was hard, and the hall super noisy so we never slept past 7. The coral pool is great. The gym is a full 1/2 mile from the coral. The virgils restaurant is too expensive so go to the marina if you stay here. I’d stay at the beach if I had kids because the room “upgrades” aren’t worth it. If you have kids it’s great, but you won’t really feel like you’re in he Bahamas because it’s so Americanized and expensive. If you stay, definitely take a boat trip off the island. The turtle cove and Rose beach are stunning. Definitely get to the water park or there’s no reason to stay here! The slides are fun. Read less

There are so many options when you start to consider a trip to Atlantis which can be admittedly daunting if you've never been there before. Between the 4 or 5 different hotels, meal plans, activities, it'll make your head spin. We went with the middle of the road option and it didn't disappoint.

There are so many options when you start to consider a trip to Atlantis which can be admittedly daunting if you've never been there before. Between the 4 or 5 different hotels, meal plans, activities, it'll make your head spin. We went with the middle of the road option and it didn't disappoint. Not too expensive, but also not the cheapest option and I think it over delivered. We had a great room on the top floor facing the ocean which I think it worth the extra little bit per night. The size of the entire resort itself is truly astounding. The water park alone was worth the price of admission for our family (two boys, 5 and 7), but the grounds were beautiful and well maintained and things like the aquarium were surprisingly comprehensive and definitely worth a look. Yes, the little village in the marina feels contrived, but the vibe is great and you can find cheaper meal options, but it still isn't cheap. Overall, we had a great vacation and would likely head back! Read less

We booked a room in October. Since the occupancy was low, we got an upgrade to an oceanview room (also facing the Coral pool). Two of the resort’s best employees, Desi & Dion, work at the Coral Tower. We love to visit here often, whether we cruise or fly to the Bahamas.
