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 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.

When we heard travel restrictions from the US were lifted in June we were ecstatic to book our long awaited family vacation. We secured a reservation at the Royal Suites and promptly paid in full a VERY large deposit. Two weeks later the Bahamas Government suspended travel from the US and our summer vacation was a wash out. When we called the Atlantis to request our refund they told us that it would take up to 90 days !! It took them 90 seconds to swipe my credit card, and now I cant book a replacement vacation until my funds are returned to me.... Nice policy Atlantis !! You guys really know how to screw with a patrons personal finances !! Read less

Having booked a stay prior to COVID 19, I canceled about 75 days prior to my scheduled arrival date due to COVID travel concerns. This cancellation was well with the required "15 days prior to arrival requirement". The cancellation was confirmed along with a statement indicating a credit would be issued to my credit card within 60 days. (This time delay due to COVID shutdown) After waiting 75 days, I called and was told that due to shut down and short staffing they were running about 90 for refunds/credits. After waiting another 30 days, I called again only to be told that they would "expedite" the request to the accounting department.. I have waited another 30 days, now a total of FIVE months, and called today only to be told that they are still running behind and they don't know when they will have the refund/credit processed. In the meantime, I am being charged interest on the amount that should have been credited long ago. It is also interesting to note that they have staff available to be actively "taking new reservations" . This has been a very frustrating and disappointing experience with what I thought to be a 1st class resort. They have lost me as a customer, never again. Read less

Booked a visit to Atlantis for April, cancelled in March due to covid. I was prepared to wait the 90 days for a full refund. But here it is WELL past that timeline. All customer service, whether email or phone is just a waste of time. How about training customer service to apply refunds?? Can't express how frustrated this process has been.… Read more
