The Cove Atlantis

I just stay at The Cove Atlantis and it was spectacular!

As massive as the Atlantis Resort complex is, I felt it was important to first describe most of the areas of the complex which all guests have access too, then list the accommodations one can select from as there is something for every price point and then close by focusing on The Cove.

Atlantis is the most talked-about resort in the Bahamas, and one of the most spectacular in the Caribbean in scope and scale. Atlantis sits on 34-Acre (yes Acres). Some of the the features:

An 11-million-gallon marine habitat,
A casino with 1000 slot machines,
A 63-slip marina,
44 restaurants and lounges,
A world-class Mandara Spa with 24 treatment suites
Ruins Lagoon, the world's largest aquarium with 20,000 marine creatures
The Dig, an imaginative archaeology site of the lost city of Atlantis.
A long lazy river that has parts of it that are not lazy at all
Exhibit lagoons where one can see Sharks, Rays, Barracuda and an enormous Grouper
Water slides like "Leap of Faith", which drops into a pool underneath shark tanks.
The Discovery Channel Camp which keeps children entertained
Space for live concerts; Justin Beiber performed for 3000 fans while we we're there
Club Aura- a 9,000-sq-ft night club which draws celebrities
A Marina Village with a Starbucks & other restaurants, shops and entertainment
16 swimming pools
And miles of sandy beach too

It is surreal.

Now accommodations are in four blocks arranged around the lagoons. Royal Towers offers oversized luxurious rooms with top-notch furnishings and linens, and terrace, harbor or water views. The Coral Tower rooms are scaled-down versions of Royal Tower rooms. The Beach Tower maintains the theme for the budget-conscious. The Harborside Resort, a clutch of five-story, peak roofed buildings, offers one- to three-bedroom apartments. The Reef Atlantis features luxurious studio, 1-bedroom and 2-bedroom suites with all the conveniences and comforts of home with a full kitchen or kitchen area complete with linens, cookware, table settings, dishwasher and refrigerator.

Perhaps the most impressive in the entire fleet of towers at the Atlantis resort, the 600-suite Cove Atlantis opened in March 2007. Guests are ushered into the resort by large, open-air walkways. The lobby mixes the outdoor tranquility of fresh water pools teeming with marine life with open seating areas highlighted by exquisite furnishings where guests can relax before leaving or checking in. The property has an adults-only pool with 22 private cabanas and a separate family pool that my kids loved.

Only suites are available in the Cove. Guests choose between the ocean suite, the deluxe ocean, azure, sapphire, presidential and penthouse suites. Granite vanities, marble floors, plush bedding all set The Cove apart from other suites on island.
