“Felt like the real Barbados!”
Reviewed 2 May 2011

We have been going to the fish pot restaurant for years also owned by Andrew warden so
We were curious about his new hotel and went to see it last year having a very good lunch
As well as seeing some rooms-all clean and quite spacious -we were impressed.
This year we stayed for 2nights , next year it will be three.
Wel loved it, the room with a sensational view of the sea, the foaming lively sea it must be said a little noisy at night but actually we slept well.
Joes river another rom we saw was back from the sea with a separate sitting area would be quieter-it's your choice.
Food excellent , service with a smile and a laugh or two along the way pool very clean , again with the view of the bay, Andrew chats to the guests as do the other staff including manny ward who keeps a keen eye on the service as does Diane from the front desk.
It's simple here, ok no night life but to start your holiday here is a good idea and the food and the staff and the location on Bathsheba bay makes this a special place.
By the way breakfasts were delicious breadrcumbed slightly spicy flying fish with cooked tomatoes-perfecto.was our choice with a bread basket with some warm delicious cake
You can walk from the hotel along the beach and not see one high rise hotel just the chattel houses and a few typical small bars up the road andromeda gardens about 10 mins.

Room Tip: Joes river for space and quiet ,

This place is exceptional. It is essential to stay here for a couple of nights if you come to Barbados. It's different from the other places, collonial style, right on the waters edge with huge breakers smashing off the rocks below. You feel like you have been transported to the edge of the known world. This hotel has been here since the 19th century and, whilst it is in excellent condition, it has retained all it's charm.

In most ways very good, in others comically bad.

The good - very nice well-appointed hotel in a very beautiful location, rather secluded which we liked, but not a hotel for someone who wants some night life!

The bad - remember this is a $$$ hotel - swapping one minor item for another in the set breakfast is NOT allowed - we were given a single 0.3oz pack of butter between two of us for 8 pieces of toast, and when we asked for more butter we got one more tiny pack - no cold water in our room (the cold tap leaked, but instead of fixing it the cold supply was disconnected so for our entire stay, so we had to brush our teeth in hot water, yuck) - no latch on the bathroom door so it had to be wedged to stop it banging in the breeze - worst of all, we were charged more than once for drinks we didn't have.

Very slow but pleasant service in the restaurant.

Room Tip: Pick the room with the sea view

moondance2010, Owner at The Atlantis Hotel, responded to this review, 20 April 2011
mmmmmmm - I must thank the writter for his review however am not sure that the simple task of asking a waiter for more butter is really that relevant to a potential guests future stay - Perhaps a disappointment to the guest - but in all honesty, I feel that this might be a classic case of TMI or a down fall of Trip Advisor and the world we live in now where every piece of information can be broadcasted to the world via the internet.
The writer did perhaps slightly mislead the reader also in so much that the cold water tap in the bathroom vanity does need to change - in fact the replacment is in my office - however envolves dismantling the cupboard which would have been a greater inconvenience to the guest than not having the constant cold water.
The cold water was not actually disconected - just turned off in the cupboard - and cold water was availble in the shower. I fully appreciate the inconvenience this must have been to perhaps use the cold water in the shower to wash ones teath - or dare I say turn on the cold water from under the sink, but again reiterate that the inconvenience of changing the faucet whilst the guest was staying with us outwayed the lack of cold water as the simple "turn of the tap" would have allowed cold water to flow.
Apart from that, our service staff are extremely friendly and perhaps do work at Caribbean speed some of the time - but in a very pleasant way.

We stayed for 5 nights and loved it.Our first room was Soup Bowl with a wonderful ocean viiew,the noise of the crashing waves lulled us into deep relaxing sleep in the mosquito net draped four poster.For the last two nights we moved to Skeets Bay a larger room with no view at the back of the hotel.
Dining on the deck at night with the noisy ocean and wind was very atmospheric and the food delicious.
The staff were all very friendly and helpful.
Completely different fom the west coast hotels. All visitors to Barbados should come here,at the very least,for lunch.

Room Tip: Ask for ocean view

My mum and I came to Barbados for 7 nights and chose to stay at Atlantis for 2 nights to see the wild and rough East Coast.
From the moment we arrived, we had rum punch in hand and seated over looking the ocean with lunch. The staff were all lovely, particular mention to Diane (also known as Elizabeth!!!)
Atlantis is quite removed from anything else, but had everything we needed. We did walk up to the Round House one night for dinner... maybe a mistake as Atlantis would have been a better dinner choice!
It is very quiet and we almost had the swimming pool to ourselves and enjoyed our lunch while sunbaking... perfect.

Room Tip: We stayed in Martins Bay room... divine!

The hotel has absolutely stunning views and our bedroom, Martin's Bay, looked straight out to sea. Our room was roomy and decorated in nautical style with air conditioning that we did not use. Mosquito nets surround the bed but again we didn't need them. Service could be a bit hit and miss (typical Caribbean style) but mostly a hit and always friendly and helpful. The bar inside did not have a lot of atmosphere but the place to sit and have a drink was out on the verandah looking at the view - we even saw whales jumping at breakfast on our last morning!
Breakfast was delicious - I love saltfish and bakes for breakfast as well as flying fish and the fruit platter was huge. Evening meals were tasty too although not haute cuisine, but we did not want that. The Sunday buffet lunch was the in-place to be for locals and tourists alike with a great array of different dishes to sample.

I have marked the hotel slightly down for location as it is on the East Coast and away from the usual tourist haunts which is a disadvantage at night time if you want to eat somewhere different. You would have to drive quite a way through the sugar cane fields in the dark to eat anywhere else worthwhile. As for sleep quality, with the Atlantic ocean crashing constantly on the beach it can be a bit noisy at night until you get used to it and the fishermen tend to chatter loudly at 6 o'clock in the morning under your window. However it is a magical place and well worth a couple of nights stay here away from the madding crowd. Highly recommended.

A fantastic hotel located on the east coast, the rooms are beautifully decorated; I would recommend the Three Boys room with great views over the ocean from 2 aspects. The restaurant food is well priced for Barbados and extremely tasty particularly the seafood. Staff are very welcoming and always happy to help.

There are hourly buses into Bridgetown and Speightstown providing easy access to the beaches on the west coast.
