I have just returned from a nine night stay at Atlantis with my family, (1 kid only 1 yr old)
overall I thought the vacation was excellent, in hindishgt 46 degrees is a bit much so I can see why summer is so called cheaper in Dubai.
atlantis was magical, my package was through Virgin holidays, who were also great, the flight was good, good hostesses esp attentive to my child which made a difference.
hotel transfer was seamless and atlantis..well what can i say..
with 1600 rooms forget about personal service, butttt, once you;ve got over that, its perfect.
ignore everyone who says the decor is naff, atlantis was a lost city..so ofcourse they have let their imagination loose and done a great magical job, out kid loved it, we loved it.
we had board basis so brekie and meals were included except for 3 posh restaurants which made sense.
the breakfast at Kaleidoscope and saffron restaurants is mind blowingly awesome, 250 dishes...i was in heaven
same applies to lunch and dinner and all food of good quality.
yes the prices are high but dnt come to a five star hotel of such magnitude if you cant afford it, or do what i did and get board basis!!
service was v attentive in restaurants, in lobby the security made a great effort with my baby and we were all on first name basis v soon.
i am conscious that perhaps it was all great bcoz we went in so called off season, but it seamed really busy and still service was fab.
we did have a problem on the 4th day, as we awoke, the ceiling in bathroom had leaked heavily, someone upstairs hyad left bath running, in 5 mins of calling guest services, the manager Shane rang me and said sorry for this and upgraded us to a Terrace suite (we originally had a deluxe room), well it was fanTASTIC!!, amazing lounge room bigger than my house! and fab bathroom and bedroom and a great terrace lobby opening up to views of the royal pool.
amazing hotel provided you;ve got the money and dont mind wearing your ID pass as no one remembers you unless youve stayed 3/4 nites.
the only negatice i can offer is NOT regarding atlantis, its the Palm itself, its tucked well away from city centre, the typical cab cost is 35dhms, each way, but thats not it...
the palm and atlantis...the waterthat surfaces is well smelly and the sand is not soft, so we ended up less on beach more by the pools (not what i really wanted) perhaps I am too used to soft malaysian beaches.
