Such an amazing trip! A true Bahamas experience!

Lockport, Illinois

This was our first time staying at the Reef Atlantis. I did extensive research before picking this property for our family vacation. Wow and more wow! This property and all of Atlantis were spectacular! It was pure paradise! We arranged for a private car through Atlantis to transport us to and from the airport. Both drivers were from the Bahamas. They were so friendly, so informative and very proud of their culture. So nice to spend time with them. My children loved learning about the Bahamas. The resort was amazing! We were upgraded to a one bedroom Topaz suite. The room and the views were breath taking! The staff was so friendly, accomodating and top notch. The lady from the housekeeping staff would set our childrens stuffies in various locations all around the room- they loved that and were happy to greet her every morning on our way out for the day. It was truly a Bahamas experience! The local food and seafood were incredible! The nightly celebrations and parade were truly authentic! We loved the local shops on property. Such a welcoming group with a true caribbean vibe! One of the best parts of the trip is the marine life and experiences! My children loved the dig! They were in wonder watching and exploring all of the marine life. Atlantis did a phenomenal job with the entire structure and creating the real experience! It is no problem to leave the beautiful sunshine and scenery to experience the dig. My son wanted to visit the turtles and sawfish every chance he could! The highlight of our trip was our visit to Dolphin Cay! We did the shallow water interaction with the dolphins. This was so memorable. Out trainer was fantastic. My children fell in love with our dolphin Bimini. The dolphins and all the surroundings there were so inspirational and such a magical experience! These dolphins were rescued from Hurricane Katrina. Atlantis has placed these dolphins in such a beautiful, caring environment. A portion of every guest marine interaction experiences goes to the resort's Blue Project Foundation which helps aid and fund marine research and education. This is so awesome! Atlantis is very proud to boast of this as they should be! The whole experience with the dolphins is heart warming and so peaceful! My daughter now wants to be a dolphin trainer! I definitely recommend booking an experience with the marine life! It is not to be missed! A huge thank you to Sydney Engel for all of her help, information and guidance! This was a trip of a lifetime! I cannot say enough great things about Atlantis! True paradise, true Bahamas experience! The marine life and attractions are exceptional! We are still talking about it and telling everyone what a great trip this was! We will be back! Highly recommend this resort! You will be amazed by it!

Perfect spot for a long weekend

Boston, MA

After reading the mixed reviews we headed to Atlantis with some reservations...not to be had. We were upgraded to a one bedroom suite which was beautiful. Two bathrooms and plenty of space, kitchen and living room with a double balcony overlooking the pool and the ocean. Everyone we came in contact with had a smile and a hello wherever we went on the property. We liked that the reef was a little quieter by the pool but enjoyed walking over to the Cove pool bar in the afternoon for a little entertainment and a cocktail (that pool is adult only). We ate on property and off and were happy with all of our meals. The whole Atlantis property is huge and one day we walked from one end to the next and really got a feel for the whole place. There is so much going on for all ages that it is definitely worth the money to go at least once. We are definitely thinking about going back next year!
