The wife and I stayed at the Atlantis about a week ago, on a Thursday evening. We had stayed at the hotel in years past, on different occasions. Other stays included my wife's grandmother, her parents, along with my parents. In all honesty, life had begun to take its toll so to speak, we were both stressed with everyday pressures of living, and we both decided we needed to get away, even if our budget would only allow us a one night stay. So.. we took the plunge.
We stayed in a King Whirlpool suite. Although the room didn't have a full-kitchen, the wife and I didn't mind because we had plans to eat up at the Bar & Grill, located on 4th floor, in the Pool area. It was nice to eat on-site by the pool. We ordered a Sausage and Pepperoni Pizza, which was absolutely fantastic! I also enjoyed a mixed drink entitled "Coco-Loco" of which reminded me of a Pina Colada. The drink was very good, and with each sip, I felt transported in a dream, to a tropical environment!
Inside the mid-sized waterpark was a full size lap pool for swimming on 4th floor. A kids pool section with waterslides was additionally located in the pool area. There was also a game room, where you could win prizes. Noah's Ark (America's Largest Waterpark) and Chula Vista were both included, but we chose to stay in, and enjoy our time together on-site at the hotel.
We enjoyed the outdoor hot tub, which was located underneath the volcano waterfall outside, to the right side of the outdoor pool. The water temperature was nice and hot, and the jets were relaxing to the muscles after a long day of work.
My wife and I had been to the hotel before, but what brought us back, was mainly the attributes which help the hotel stand out in essence. First attribute is the location. Atlantis is walking distance to alot of area attractions such as: Dells Army Ducks, Big Chief Go-Karts, Mt. Olympus, to name a few. Second attribute was the Personal touch. Being remembered. Although there are always other hotels to stay at, Atlantis just seems to be a nice, family oriented atmosphere. Although it had been over a year from our last stay, we were remembered when we checked in. There was a lady at the front desk with long brown hair who checked us in. I didn't expect our names to be remembered, and no one should really expect that. However, I knew that our presence was remembered. With that said, being that the wife and I were on a tight enough budget as it was, we wanted to place our hard earned dollars and cents towards a stay that was affordable, as well as an establishment where we would be validated, and remembered :)
When you're living paycheck to paycheck, (as alot of us do in this rough economic crisis we're in) it's important to be very choosy and selective, as to where you're going to place your dollars and cents. The wife and I like the size of the hotel, and feel it's a nice inbetween size. Not too big, and not too small. Our room was very nice, and my wife enjoyed the hand painted mermaid wall-sculpture in the room. Seeing my wife happy, made me happy, so we both were happy :) We'll be sure to stop by the Atlantis again sometime when we feel the need to escape reality, and the pressures of everyday life :)
