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.

In case you’re scouring the reviews for info on sleeping accommodations for a baby (like I was!), here is a photo of the mini crib we used during our stay at the Royal Towers in December of 2018. I brought my own pack n play sheet, which worked fine, and my 8month old slept well in the crib. Had I known it was a metal crib and not a pack n play I would have probably brought her mesh crib bumper for my own piece of mind, but she was completely fine without it. We did request a mini fridge, at $15 a day. It kept water bottles cool- not cold, and unfortunately the breast milk that was kept in the fridge spoiled by the 2nd day. We used the babysitting service on our 2nd night so that I could go to dinner with our group, but when my daughter woke up to a stranger who only had a skunked bottle to offer her, a meltdown ensued. Epic fail. It wasn’t the sitter’s fault, but my night ended before our appetizers arrived. Moral of the story- make sure the fridge you get actually works!! Read less

In reading all the negative reviews, I was very apprehensive about this trip. We had a free room due to our Caesar's rewards affiliation, so I can't complain much about the room. That being said, the room was quite outdated with threadbare carpet, older/heavily used furniture, etc. However, we had no issues with enough hot water, elevator service… Read more

That being said, the room was quite outdated with threadbare carpet, older/heavily used furniture, etc. However, we had no issues with enough hot water, elevator service or spotty wifi. The grounds are what really make Atlantis, and every staff person we encountered was wonderful. We ate most of our meals at the resort, and service was great. The bartenders are fun as well, and the casino is a great diversion if the weather isn't so great. Read less

Leading up to our trip I read several terrible reviews and was really nervous for what to expect when we got there.

Leading up to our trip I read several terrible reviews and was really nervous for what to expect when we got there. I am happy to say that we did not experience any of the terrible things that others did (I read about power turning off, rude staff, and people being so dissatisfied). I had actually started questioning our decision to go here. But I'm glad to say we had an amazing trip. A couple of things - one just balance your expectations, yes there is 12% tax on EVERYTHING, and yes there is 15% gratuity on everything too and yeah the service kinda sucks. But you were prob going to tip at least 15% of most of your meals anyway so it's just included. You have to get past that part. two - there are ways to make it more affordable once you are there. We brought lots of packaged snacks with us for the room. We also got a private taxi company (Sandy's taxi) to take us to a local grocery store on the way to the resort, we stocked up on water, and some fruit like apples, bananas, cherries, things that didn't have to be refrigerated. three - walk to dunkin donuts for breakfast a few mornings. It's not that long of a walk and we were able to get coffee and breakfast sandwiches for really cheap which also saved us money four - there are budget friendly options of restaurants to pick from. We ate at Murray's deli, pizza one night, Frankie bananas etc. We just chose options such as sandwiches which really cut back on cost. We went out to Carmine's our last night and we actually loved it. We also did Olives one night too, that was so/so for the price, prob wouldn't do that one again. Yes the room is somewhat dated and could prob use a refresh but it wasn't too bad. We also didn't encounter any negative service in regards to the hotel. We were even able to check into our room EARLY!!! We arrived at 9am on Sunday morning and our room was available for us right away - something I was not expecting! The pools were amazing, even for a pregnant woman and a toddler. We loved the kids pool options and went back and forth between the two. There were even times that my daughter was the only one in the one kids pool (granted we were there the week before the hurricane). Is Atlantis perfect? No. But there were a lot of positives and it was a great location for someone that was 6 months pregnant and also had a 2.5 year old to entertain. She loved the trip the most! Read less

We stayed in a corner room with two balconies. It was well situated in the middle of the resort. The room had a few maintenance issues and the staff was very attentive to fixing the issue. I enjoyed spending time watching the manta rays and sharks gliding around below in the cove. Great pools and beach.
