Winter paradise vacation destination
Posted Feb 11, 2017
Check in and out was extremely quick and easy. The hotel was clean. Staff was friendly. Plenty of tasty food anytime you want. If you want a fancier dining experience, there are 3 dining rooms you can go to, but there is limited seating, so get there at least 30 minutes early to get a spot. Also remember to bring pants and a shirt with sleeves. It doesn't have to be fancy, but they don't allow shorts or sleeveless shirts. Parasailing and jet ski rental is available on the beach behind the hotel. Some require cash but one will take credit cards. We booked parasailing on Expedia and were able to walk to the hotel beach and get on. It was amazing. The hotel does have airports transfers, but you have to pay for it. Catching a taxi anywhere on the island is extremely easy. Taxi drivers wait outside the hotel all the time. It's about a 25 minute walk to Atlantis in a nice area that feels safe. I might recommend a premium ocean view because the room faced atlantis cove resort, but when you're on the balcony you could see the ocean. Ice is only available on some floors, not all of them, so you might have to go to another floor to get ice. Every night around 8 they had a show, so you don't have to leave the hotel for entertainment. There was also staff at the pool to rally people to play games and dance, but the pool atea clears out about 5pm every day. No matter where you are in the hotel, you can always get a drink. A taxi to the main land is $12-$13, to the airport it's $35- $38.
