I've been back from the Atlantis about a month now and must say that i highly reccomend it.
We stayed in an Imperial Club room meaning that our drinks and snacks were free throughout the day until 10 o'clock. This is DEFINATELY worth it due to the fact that all of the other restaurants are sooo expensive. The food in the Lounge is lovely and there is a big varitey which changes from day today. We were also placed higher up in the hotel because we were in an Imperial Room and the views were amazing.
The room had partition doors which looked into the bathroom with a sunken bath. The cleaner was absolutely fantastic making animals out of the towels like dogs, swans - each day was a new style. He also left Arabic treats and sweets everyday for us.
The hotel was spotlessly clean and people were always on hand to help. The pool staff were a great laugh and did anything for you like get you a golf buggy to get to the other side of the hotel or fetching fresh drinks. The Pools were gorgeous too - one was an infinity pool looking onto the city and the other was the Zero entry pool which was also gorgeous.
I had a massage by the pool which was great though a bit pricey though you cant expect much else from a hotel like this. If you are planning to eat in the hotel all of the holiday and try the different restaurants it will very VERY expensive. We went to Nobu which was a bit of a let down - one tiny glass of Veuve Cliquot Champage cost £30 which is absolutely extortionate and after eating in another celebrity restaraunt we decided we didnt want to pay the prices and ate out in the near by Malls or went to a restaraunt in the hotel called Saffron which was the best bit of the hotel!
It was quite expensive but the food was amazing and it had such a variety - you could have Indain, Italian, French, Arabic, Chinese, Create your own Salad, pancakes, a chocolate fountain, a grill and so much more. One of the chefs even made me my own dish!
If i went back i'd stick to eating out and in Saffron as the other restaurants were a waste of money. Before we went to the hotel we booked a restaurant for each of the nights we were there but ended up cancelling them when we experienced them and found out the price. The Lebanese restaurant was an experience and well worth it though it was very pricey too!!
I would definately recommed this hotel as it is absolutely fantastic - the big aquarium is amazing and the water park just outsidde is so much fun - the rapids are great fun. The only thing i'd say is to be careful of how much you spend because you could easily go crazy here!
I also swam with the dolphins which was really good fun!!
