Hi I just came back from Atlantis! Great hotel with so many activities =) I definitely enjoy my vacation. I stayed in Royal Tower East. The room is clean and nice.
When I was there the hotel was fully booked, so it might or might not affect the room service we were getting. Our iron did not work, so we requested a replacement. And it took one hour before it is delivered to our room. Overall I can feel that people in Bahamas are VERY laid back.
Babysitter, we requested for one to take care our 18 months daughter. There is minimum of 3 hours to request the service and they charged $20/hr.
The first day we got miss Victoria who my daughter did not fond of. When she arrived in our room, I explained to her I will try to put my daughter to sleep first so when we leave she can just wait on her. Then after that, she claimed a chair and turned on TVs WHILE I was trying to put my daughter to sleep!!!! You know how TVs and lights can be distracting to curious toddler! i had to request her to turn the TVs off. When we came back to the room, we heard from outside the room our daughter's cry. We entered the room, and what I saw was not a babysitter who tried to comfort my daughter who might be awaken and surprised not to find us. She kept watching TV while sitting my toddler on her lap. Well this might be a preference for each parent but i was not happy.
The next day we requested a change for a new babysitter with these conditions: no watching TV, passionate with toddler, active and interractive well with children. Then they found me ANTONiA!! Great person! Since then I always request Antonia. My daughter adores her. She played and sang with my daughter. Change diaper, and feeding her too. And she put my daughter to sleep.
OK that is my review, hope it can help those parents who need babysitter like i did. =D
