I love Atlantis.* I love it so much that I have been there fourteen times. Yes, you read that right. My first trip to Atlantis was more than twenty years ago. The Royal Tower was just about to open, and we (my mom and I) stayed in the Coral Tower. I have been a fan ever since. I’ll talk more about Atlantis in general in an upcoming post. My sister and I went to The Cove in December of 2017. We were actually upgraded to the Cove from another tower, which I imagine is not that common. Maybe it was because it was my thirteenth time there!
We went to our usual favorite restaurants, some more than once. I highly recommend making dinner reservations before you arrive. Once you book your trip, and have a confirmation number, you can go to their site and book up to 90 days in advance.
As usual, the food was amazing! Our favorites are The Bahamian Club, Café Martinique, Casa D’Angelo, and Seafire Steakhouse. The food in any of these restaurants never disappoint. For starters, I always have a cup of conch chowder at The Bahamian Club, a crab-cake from Café Martinique, the caesar salad (it has the best dressing I have ever tasted anywhere) at Casa D’Angelo, and Spinach and Artichoke Dip from Seafire.
Lobster is always a go to entree for me. I highly recommend the Bahamian Lobster Tail at Seafire Steakhouse. It is different from any other lobster, there is almost a sweetness to it. It is awesome! My sister had a huge steak, which she loved.
Desserts are always of interest for me, and the desserts here are fantastic at every restaurant.
Now that I have gone on about the food, The Cove is an awesome part of Atlantis. It is the most expensive of the towers, and it is a bit of a walk to the restaurants and casino. It is totally worth it. The rooms are beautiful (I have never seen a bigger or cleaner bathroom in my life) and close to the adult pool, the beach, a family pool, and a snack bar. If you don’t want to walk to dinner or the casino, there is a complimentary shuttle that stops at all of the towers. We never waited more than five minutes.
A note about the Adults Only Pool (18 and up), it is really for twenty somethings looking for a lot of alcohol. At 43, I was way past that scene. My sister and I enjoyed the nearby Cascades pool and the beach. Both were just steps from the lobby exit.
We had a small billing issue when we went to check out, but Cameron at the front desk took care of everything quickly, and we had no other issues.
All in all, it was one of my best trips to Atlantis. My next post is about my stay in the Royal Tower, only four months later!
