We stayed at the Comfort Suites January 20-24th. The hotel is clean, rooms are a decent size, and the free breakfast does the trick. We ate by the pool instead of inside, better setting. The best part is the access to the Atlantis. It is across the street, maybe a three minute walk. The Atlantis is gigantic and beautiful! Breathtaking views! Very clean and the staff were all so friendly. I will say, not very handicap accessible though.
We brought a soft cooler and went to the convenient store across the street by Quiznos and bought pop and water to bring (the cans are $1 each). The pop at the Atlantis is $4.00 each and the bottles of water are $3.75. We also brought snacks from the convenient store (even though the Cheese Its were $7.49 a box!). The food is just as expensive as they say. A burger value meal is $11 and includes a drink and fries (not terrible). We paid $7 for a ben & jerry's small ice cream bar. The buffets for breakfast were $27 for an adult. They do add a 15% gratuity to everything you buy. Marino's Pizza is the place to go. The pizza is good. The large is $37 and will easily feed a family of 5 for dinner. We brought our cooler of drinks and sat outside by the marina to eat our pizza. It was perfect! We also ate at the deli which was very good. A little pricy, but not as bad as the other restaurants there.
Inside the Atlantis you can use your room card (or a credit card) from comfort suites to buy food-no cash accepted. In the stores you cant use your comfort suites room key though.
We tried Anthony's for lunch across the street where the kids eat free (you need vouchers from comfort suites). Food was good, decent prices for lunch comparable to TGI Fridays or Chili's. We went in for dinner one night and the prices were pretty steep-we actually got up and left!
The beach is just ok. Nothing special at all. It is a public beach and there are vendors there to sell you stuff. You can also rent wave runners from the locals on the beach.
Tons of pools! All are zero depth entry. The one by the beach towers was the warmest by far and the least crowded.
The water slide that you go down in a tube go thru the shark tank was very cool. You go down slow enough to see everything. The one next to it goes straight down and thru the shark tank too, but you're going too fast to see anything!
The current (fun lazy river) was our favorite!
Lots of high end stores in Atlantis and in the Marina Village. Nice jewlery, Gucci, Fendi, high end designers. Also the Atlantis Signature stores where you can get anything and everything Atlantis you want!
We took a cab ($4 per person) to Nassau for a little shopping for souveniers. Went to Senor Frogs for dinner which is always a good time. It is right on the ocean where the cruise ships dock so the view is pretty.
We took the kids to Blue Lagoon Island for a beach day. Took a catamaran from the pier (5 min walk from the hotel) for about 20 minutes passing all of the mansions on the ocean. The island had lunch, drinks, hammocks, floating mats, and jumpy slides in the water. You could also swim with the dolphins or sea lions for an extra charge of course. We didnt swim with them, but went over and were able to see them all up close.
There are 2 small shops there and indoor nice restrooms. Plenty of lounge chairs and shade. Beautiful island! Relaxing day for us and the kids(ages 9,11, and 14) were wiped out!
Getting through the airport was a breeze. It is all being renovated right now. We had a shuttle thru our package with majestic tours to the hotel. It was about a 30-35 minute ride because there was traffic getting thru downtown Nassau.
The wi-fi is free and worked very well in our rooms. We called home with a calling card that we bought across the street at the connvenient store ($10 for 40 minutes to the US). The hotel does charge a $.50 connection fee for each call.
I would choose to stay at the comfort suites again vs the beach towers at the Atlantis. We saved a ton of money in the breakfast and wi-fi alone.
Great vacation! Would love to come back and stay for a few weeks!
