We've just returned from a weeks stay at the Atlantica Bay and had such a restful time. All the staff are a credit to the hotel - attentive and friendly. The food was lovely with some great choices. The a la carte was fabulous and the BBQ was good with a good opportunity for my husband to get out of his trousers for the evening and into his shorts!
The rooms are contemporary and clean, the bathroom was nice. The bed was probably the comfiest bed we've had on holiday and HUGE! We paid extra for the sea view and I am glad we did. Previous reviews had mentioned a noisy road but we didn't find it intrusive and certainly couldn't hear it once the doors were closed at night.
There is the usual annoying 'sunbed brigade' who insist on reserving the sun beds from 6.30am onwards but there really is no need as there are plenty.
We spent our days on the beach where there are also plenty of sun beds to go round and there was generally a lovely breeze. This is reached via the underpass but the road isn't that busy and can be crossed without any problem. The beach is better than the photos suggest - landscaped as a tiered terrace with grass on the tier nearest the bar (love that you can avoid sandy toes!), sand on the next tier down and then the beach. The beach is a bit stony in the sea for a short while then sand. If you enter the sea just past some rocks which extend into the sea, there are no stones underfoot. If you have a sun bed on the grassy area, the waiters take your drink orders and bring them to you. The beach does get very busy and noisy at the weekend when the locals come down and the bar next door cranks up the volume but hey it's their island and who can blame them!
If I am to nit pick it would be that you have to sign for everything which is tiresome, particularly as AI guests are wearing their all inclusive bracelets.
Before we arrived I read a real mix of reviews. If you are considering this hotel I would say just go for it. It's a fab place!
