We were there from 2/17-2/23 and had an awsome time. The weather was great, warm and sunny everyday around 85. I must say though that the pools are NOT heated and kind of chilly. The ocean was beautiful, nice waves and clean white sand. We got there on Thursday and had no problem getting a chair by the pools or beach until Sunday when all of the people statred to arrive (school winter vacation). At that point you could forget about a chair anywhere. There really should be a rule about the towel on chair business but I suppose the early bird gets the worm. We stayed in the Beach Tower and that was just fine for us (Husband and Son). I have to say that after going to all of the different pools at the Royal and Coral Towers I found that the Beach Tower area was much calmer, quieter and laid back and I enjoyed that spot more than the others. As for our room is was basic but very clean and a good size , everything was in working order and we had no problems. One thing you really need to do though is to check your bill every couple of days. Upon check-in we refused the mini-bar key, and were charged for items from the min bar, we rented a fridge ($15.00 per day) and they charged us for 7 days instead of six. I called up and they credited us right away, but you do need to stay on top of them. You can get a copy of your bill right at the concierge desk. As for food what can I say besides EXPENSIVE and AVERAGE. We knew this going there, so we were prepared for the prices. I really cant think of one resort we have been to that the food was cheap and great . We came to the Atlantis to have a great time , and we did , we enjoyed every aspect of this beautiful place with so much to offer that the mediocore food really wasnt that much of a big deal. If you have been to Disney World you will know what I mean . They are adding on so much to this resort that it will be the Walt Disney World of the Carribean. The Atlantis Resort is really hard to describe with all of the water features, aquariums,sea life , bridges, pathways, twists and turns, beautiful plants and flowers. it is just so much to take in and thats just on the outside. We would go back in a flash. You just have to see it for yourself. If you have any questions you can E-mail me I would be happy to help.
