Atlantis Beach Towers or Comfort Suites???

We are booking a trip to Paradise Island for first weekend in september with my 80 yr old parents (no kids) and have gotten identical deals at atlantis Beach Towers & Comfort Suites! we are so confused about which to choose. Only staying there 2 nights. its my parents first trip there so trying to make the best choice. free breakfast & wifi at comfort suites is only difference. we have stayed at comfort suites a long time ago and it was fine. Just curious if the entire atlantis experience is better staying at Beach towers. any input will be appreciated, especially from anyone having stayed at both. thanks!

Comfort Suites is closer to the shopping and dining. Beach Tower is closer to the beach. Both are about a 15 minute walk to the casino or waterpark. Where you stay will depend on which is closest to where you are going to spend the most amount of time.

I personally love the Beach Tower but I am a great fan of the beach and having an oceanview room to me is a big thrill. Many people here prefer CS because their rate includes both breakfast and wi-fi. Plus, I believe their swimming pool is open later in the evenings after the pools at Atlantis close.

It really depends on what your parents want to do while they are there.

The shuttles might be a big advantage of staying on Atlantis property.

Comfort Suites guests are about a 3 minute walk to the Atlantis Casino and another 3 minutes to the water park NOT 15 minutes. I've stayed at C.S. 11 times and can verify the times. C.S. to the beach is about 10 minutes.

C.S. guests CAN use the complimentary Atlantis shuttles and all other amenities guests at Atlantis partake.

Does the shuttle stop at CS or is the closest spot to get it at Coral Towers? Maybe at Marina Village?

The Atlantis courtesy shuttles do NOT stop at C.S.. The closest place for C.S. guests to catch one is at the Coral Tower lobby driveway a two min. walk out the back stairways at C.S..

I have seen the shuttle let people off at the top of the stairway at Marina Village but I have not seen them pick people up there. I guess it really doesn't matter as the Coral Towers is only a minute walk past that stairway.

They can stop at the top of the stairway at the M.V. since they drive on the left side of the road. Departing the lobby driveway they would be on the right side of the driveway, thereby being across the road from the M.V. top stairway.

Either hotel should be okay for your parents if they're in good health. We've stayed at Comfort Suites two times but this December we're trying the Beach Towers. Hubby is elderly and walking from CS to the casino takes us about 10 minutes. While we enjoyed CS, it was a walk to the hand out at the Beach Tower pool and the old lazy river. We also like to go to the movies at the Beach Club and we'll try the comedy show this time too. It took us the same amount of time to walk to MV and casino from the Beach Tower as the CS. The only time we used the shuttle from the Coral Towers was after dinner at Virgil's and we had to wait for it.

If I could make one change at Atlantis, it would be this: move the desk where you get your bracelets to the area by the stores outside of the casino or give them out at all the check-in desks. I don't mind any of the walking around the grounds or from CS but I hate walking through the casino every morning!

Wrist bands are available at the towel huts poolside. No need to walk throughout he casino for one.
