I just returned from a girls weekend getaway to the Atlantis, and I can't say enough about how wonderful it was! It is truly a gem, and I cannot wait to return time and time again.
My friend and I had room 203 on the second floor, and the views were nothing short of spectacular. The rooms are as oceanfront as it gets. We loved sitting on the balcony and watching the waves crash on the rocks. The rooms have big picture windows as well, so even if the weather isn't the greatest, you can still sit inside and get the same view.
The room was one of the cleanest I've ever seen, and the beds were extremely comfortable and very hard to get out of in the morning...in a good way! One note about the rooms to people who may be traveling with kids, the bathrooms only have showers, no tub, so it may be difficult if you have a young child with you.
We loved Gloucester and enjoyed hunting for sea glass on the beaches, shopping on main street, and had some great meals as well. We enjoyed lobster and steamers the first night at the Gloucester House, and the food, atmosphere, and service were all great.
The second night, we dined at a little place in the Rocky Neck art colony called The Rudder. It was hopping in there and the food and atmosphere were top-notch, but the service was atrocious. The hostess was wonderful and got us a great table, but our waitress basically ignored us. I probably would not eat there again because of the lack of service on her part.
The Atlantis has a great breakfast cafe with awesome bacon and perfectly brewed coffee. We enjoyed being able to walk downstairs and grab a bite first thing in the morning. We also loved taking a walk along the oceanside sidewalk after we ate.
I would highly recommend the Atlantis to anyone looking for a fun and relaxing coastal New England getaway!
