The Cove Atlantis

  1. Just wondering if anyone here has stayed at The Cove Atlantis (Paradise Island, Bahamas) or know someone who has. I'm looking for review - the good, the bad, the ugly. I'm trying to plan a Girlfriend's Getaway for the spring or summer and this at the top of the list to research.

    Oh yeah....I'm open to suggestions for other Girlfriend Getaway locations, too.
  2. Sorry, I've never been there, but your vacation sounds wonderful! I've been to Nassau twice and to me nothing is prettier than the drive from the airport to the resorts. Hope the scenery is still as beautiful when you go!!
  3. I was actually there the beginning of december for my friends bachelorette party. It was AWESOME. the place is huge I actually got lost a couple of times. The cove area is private to everyone else staying at the resort, no kids allowed and there is topless pool area as well.

    You HAVE to check out the club...I forget the name of it but I want to say its the only one there, the entrance is right in the middle of the casino.

    Also worth trying are the slides, we had so much fun, the lazy river etc.

    One thing that we were not crazy about was the food. There are tons of restaurants and being that we were only there 2 and half days we didn't try them all but we went to a deli the first night and paid $20 for a greek salad that had 5 day old lettuce in it and a half a pound of onions, second night we actually venture outside the hotel and had a pretty nice dinner for a normal price. The rest of our meals in the hotel were expensive and mediocre, but you are not going there for the food :p

    Definitely a good time but be prepared to spend a lot of money.
  4. I have been going to the atlantis every year for about 10 yrs. we love it!!! so much to do and women traveling alone allways feel safe, great shopping, great restaurants there are many to choose from if you get the chance try dune @ ocean club my fav!!!
  5. I haven't but it is my dream to go there!! It sounds absolutely amazing. Have fun when you go!
  6. I'd have to look up teh COve specifically, but we stayed at Atlantis 2 summers ago.
    We've never had a worse vacay experience.
    We're not even terribly picky, but they truly couldn't have cared less that we were there. We have never had such terrible service - NO LIE.
    I honestly get better service at Holiday Inn Express in Edmond, Ok. . . thye're giddy when I pull in! LOL!

    Oh, and you better not be hungry or thirsty at 5pm at the pools be cause they CLOSE THE FOOD STANDS!!!!! Isn't that insane!?
    The pools were open until 8pm, but no food or drink was available after 5. . . AT A RESORT!
    We were horrified.
