Atlantica Oak Island Resort & Conference Centre
Ranked #1 of 1 Hotels in Western Shore
Reviewed 20 January 2014

I have been to this hotel 3 times. Most recently I got married there. The first two times I had a regular room but for the wedding we stayed in a seaside chalet which had a BBQ and outdoor fire pit by the ocean. The hotel staff are friendly, as are all Nova Scotians. The view of the ocean is spectacular. The food is quite good, which is great because its a bit of a drive to get to Mahone Bay or Lunenburg for a restaurant.

I have stayed in other Atlantica properties before and this one by far surpasses the others in QualityQ

Room Tip: The seaside chalets have outdoor fire pits

Hotel has an excellent location on ocean waterfront. It is well situated between Chester and Mahone Bay. Ideal for those who do not want to stay in B&B (plenty in region) or do not want to drive back to Halifax, which is a good 45 min. away. Hotel has very unassuming facade, but offers good mix of standard hotel rooms (view parking or waterfront with balcony), condos and chalets (for summer). Furniture is dated, but rooms are decent and clean, similar style to Comfort Inn or possibly Best Western. Hotel has a small bar, an outdoor pool and a good restaurant with oceanfront view. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Hotel is easy to miss given away from main road. Don't miss the red sign.

Room Tip: Suggest you get a room with ocean view.

We just returned from our daughter's wedding, held on December 29th. The staff could not have been more attentive and helpful-particularly Gavin and his fantastic staff. Also the maintenance people went above and beyond to restore water to our villa, in the snow, and at night, no less.
We stayed in Villa #9 and the views were just fantastic! We used the villa for the bride and bridesmaids to get ready and it worked out perfectly. We also made use of the spa while there.
The staff is what makes this a special place.

Room Tip: It is worth the additional price to get an ocenview room. For a family, the villas are great!

We went to this property for a weekend trip with family and our two young kids in November 2013.

The positives included family-friendly facilities: The room was a standard hotel room, but had a small fridge which was very helpful, and staff brought a portable crib for our youngest child. The pool includes a separate shallow area for the little kids and life vests in all sizes can be used. The hot tub has a lovely bright view. The grounds include a small playground and ponds/ trails to explore.

The negative was the restaurant. Despite a great kiddie menu (and kids free when eating with adult hotel guests, a great deal), indicating this is a place where children will be attended to, the kitchen was unbelievable slow both nights of our stay. Our little children waited 1.5 hours for their food-- while we distracted them with various degrees of success with toys books, walks around, etc. It was quite stressful and no information was available about the reason or length of the delays (wait staff trying very hard but very few of them). The food for grown-ups was pricey and poorly done-- cold pasta, stringy shrimp, very few fresh or vegetarian options.

Room Tip: Ocean side is worth the extra money, away from doors.

I meant to write this review a long time but forgot. We went to Oak Island in July of 2013 and had a great time. It is pet friendley so we brought our dog who also enjoyed the trip away. Check in and out were painless and staff were very friendley. Our room was roomey and clean and the maid kept it clean while we were there, the beds were very comfy I could have stayed in bed all day! We received vouchers for breakfast buffet which was fantastic! The waffles with whipped cream and berries were amazing! The communtiy of Chester was charming with lots to look at, see and do. We took a drive to a little island called Graves island which has walking trails, camping and a beach, also nice, we took the dog for a walk and swim. I really enjoyed my stay although there could be more to do, the mini putt was not in good shape at all, the horse shoes were ok but we were eaten by bugs and we sprayed down with bug spary before we started to play. It just felt like something was missing, maybe they need more to do with the water....like paddle boats or even boat tours....

Last weekend, my fiance and I went to Oak Island for a romantic getaway to celebrate our new engagement. We were given a room at the end of the hallway the was beside a loud exterior door that all guests and maintenance people could access; therefore, bright and early the next morning (6:50am) we began hearing the door slam about every 10-15 mins. It was impossible to sleep in and we did not get to enjoy a peaceful morning. We went to the restaurant for breakfast and came in following a large group. The servers seemed very flustered and disorganized. We opted for the buffet to try and speed up the process but much of the food was cold. This was a let down for our romantic getaway to say the least.

Stayed at Atlantica, Western Shore on Sunday and Monday of this past week. The room was a bit outdated, the television was an older tube style, and the reception was fuzzy on most channels. The bed was also a bit older, and was considerably less comfortable then other hotels I've stayed in.

Granted it was off-season, but the hotel bar closed at 9pm... and after that only a vending machine was available for water, beverages, or snacks.

All in all the staff at this hotel were okay, but nobody really went out of their way to wow any of the guests in my party.

The views from the hotel in the summer I am sure would be excellent, unfortunately for us the weather wasn't co-operating for us to look-out anywhere.

Room Tip: Ask for a balcony room
