Compass point was the perfect getaway from the city and the mobs of tourists. My boyfriend and I wanted a place away from all the hustle and bustle of a commercial hotel. The city is about a 20-30 min cab ride away. The hotel has a cabby who was very friendly and punctual. Thanks Leo! There are also plenty of places to explore nearby. Their beautiful Caribbean style huts add to the Bahamian experience. The rooms were very clean and the view is spectacular. We had room service on our porch every morning! The restaurant has lots of options to choose from. They have live bands play in the evening. One of the nights was a great reggae band that I really enjoyed. And to unwind after a long day, visit the spa for a full body massage! The staff was so friendly and helpful. They went out of their way (especially Phillip) to help my boyfriend propose to me on the pier. It was truly a magical experience and I couldn't have imagined a better place to do it!

It had everything we wanted. Two great pools, a beautiful beach with a private access, a wonderful outdoor bar/restaurant. Best part -- not a lot of people, like the big hotels (RIU, Atlantis). Rooms were ok. Big and roomy. Bathrooms could use a little updating but were clean and functional. We had a one bedroom, with a queen hideabed and a bath and a half. Every unit had a lanai and the grounds were well maintained. We liked this place a lot.

Harborside is a great way to visit Atlantis. All the units are small apartments, not just a hotel room. So the parents have a bedroom separate from the kids. Our kids slept on a fold out couch, or some units have 2 bedrooms I believe. You have full access to the Atlantis water parks, beaches and activities. It is much better than a standard hotel room, you get a kitchen and washer and dryer.
Atlantis is so spread out that no matter where you stay, you will be walking. Harbor side is a little out of the way, but really worth it! There are free shuttles that take you to the other towers if you want them. We chose to walk most of the time.
There are No shuttles to the Airport though. Not from any Atlantis hotel. That sucked.
Atlantis really gets you on every nickel and dime. Harbor side has to go by the Atlantis rules, but they are helpful in finding you alternatives as well. It is a time share, and they did politely invite us to their schpeel, but when we declined, they didn't push it even a little bit. They were very nice about it.
I do recommend the harbor side if you're planning to visit Atlantis.

I love this hotel - great location, close to all the tourist action, but far enough away to give you great privacy. Separate bedroom and full kitchen are a nice plus. The grounds are beautifully kept and full of local vegetation (bromeliads, orchids, local flowers and shrubs). I've stayed here once or twice a year for the past three years and plan to go back.

We live in the Bahamas, the staff that was taking care of us was really excellent , this is quiet unusual as in the past I was not always happy with the staff at Atlantis specially the front desk.
This time all of them were very friendly.
