The Royal at Atlantis

Bahamas, Caribbean

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 guestrooms 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.

Luxury prices, average accommodation, dodgy pricing structure and shady business practices. Just in general this feels like a fallen empire, the beach is littered with plastic straws & bottles, everything on the resort is eye wateringly expensive and they have next to no healthy options.

Luxury prices, average accommodation, dodgy pricing structure and shady business practices. Just in general this feels like a fallen empire, the beach is littered with plastic straws & bottles, everything on the resort is eye wateringly expensive and they have next to no healthy options. I know we were there out of season but even just finding out what restaurants are open is a challenge, if you don't get the flier from reception which comes out in the morning then you have no idea where you can/can't eat. Attended recently for a conference booked over the phone and had to ask repeatedly for a booking confirmation, asked several times for details of the price of the stay... checked out, paid for my stay and was charged a susbequent $900 because I had a guest. We enjoyed the Bahamas and the people there were great but make no mistake the Atlantis is not a luxury report, it is a profit driven casino. If you are willing to gamble it sounds like you may get a deal, if you're there for a holiday I would suggest going elsewhere, it's just not work it. Read less

Me and my two best friends stayed here for two nights 22nd - 24th of October due to a problem at a hotel we had stayed in before here. We were checked in by Danyel & Bryttany who were both lovely, helpful and even gave us a free room upgrade. The hotel itself is amazing, the room was really big and the view was great! You get free access to the waterpark and the Dig (aquarium) if you book here which is good. The aquarium is huge and really nice. We just wished we stayed here from the beginning of our stay. We would definitely return in the future and I definitely recommend this hotel. Read less

Was at Dubai one six months ago, This one is much bigger and better and a must for any visitor to Nassau. We walked round the resort and had some cocktails. Although if we'd had more time would have participated in the water park adventures.
