This was our first visit to Barbados so we didn't know what to expect from the island. However, we quickly discovered that we had made absolutely the right choice with the Atlantis. If you like your beaches deserted; waves in your turquoise sea; a breeze constantly in your hair and well-nigh perfect peace then the East Coast is for you and the Atlantis is the ideal place from which to appreciate it all. We had one of the sea-facing rooms which was spacious, tastefully furnished and kept extremely clean. The pool was invariably quiet, with great views of the crashing waves beyond. While we were staying, our fellow guests were mainly couples of all ages, one or two with children of toddler age or below. We ate in the restaurant on about half our nights there; the food was good, and our only quibble would be that the service wasn't always on top of things - there was never any shortage of staff, but there didn't appear to be an overall 'controlling hand' ensuring that efforts were properly directed.
If you want to see the island properly you really do need a car. Getting a bit lost is part of the experience and you're almost always in sight of one coast of the other, so you just have to follow your nose and you'll get there sooner or later. We made a few forays to the glamorous West Coast and enjoyed a lovely lunch at the Atlantis' sister establishment. We had look around the Little Good Harbour Hotel which is very prettily presented and across the road from a lovely little quiet beach. However, I'd say our hearts are lost to the East Coast...
Staff were delightful - welcoming, courteous and went out of their way to ensure we had a good holiday. The owners have clearly made a significant investment in the Atlantis and we hope that they reap the benefits in the years to come.
