I agree with the two reviews I read before. We stayed with two adults and two teens (13 and15), in two adjoining rooms which worked out well.
- Free breakfast but get there early to beat crowds. We would refill our water bottles from dispenser here, and carry take away coffees to bring to Atlantis.
- Atlantis right across street which is good since you need to walk over every morning (with everyone present) to get your wrist bands for entry into water parks.
- Rooms are clean and with nice hot showers. We had to have housekeeping come fix our tv reception, replace a bunch of lightbulbs (rooms are very dark) and bring more bathroom supplies but they responded right away.
- Hotel pool is nice and quiet and a relief from the maddening crowds at Atlantis. It has it's own poolside bar and drinks are MUCH cheaper than anywhere else we went.
- Could not make outside calls from Comfort Suites the entire time we were there. We tried to make dinner or day tour reservations a few times. I could not get an outside line and every time I asked the front desk to connect me to the number I would get disconnected. One night I was asking them to connect me to a restaurant numerous times which was over the bridge in downtown Nassau. Finally we just went down and hailed a cab which cost $20. We were dumped into Nassau only to find that Nothing is open Sunday night. Neither the hotel staff or cab driver mentioned this to us.
- As with many big resorts, you have to get chairs by the pools in Atlantis early. Go down and put out towels, books, etc. to mark your spot or you will walk around trying to find somewhere to sit.
- The bars and eating spots in Atlantis do not take cash so you have to use a room key (not sure if they accept CS cards, because we used credit cards) bUt if you are not staying in an Atlantis hotel you also need a photo I.D. Sometimes they enforce this, sometimes they don't. We learned this two days into vacation when we had to walk all the way back to the hotel just buy the kids hot dogs by the pool at Atlantis.
- CS guests have 'access' to Atlantis amenities but they are not all free like the water park is. Club Crush for teens is $25 per night per teen and the fitness facility is $15 per day per person.
Overall, the hotel is definitely a better value than staying on an Atlantis property, but Paradise Island prices are inescapable. Things weren't that much cheaper over the bridge and then you pay the cab fee. Prices at every restaurant were over-inflated and we had no really memorable meals (we tried Bimini Road, Murray's Diner, Carmine's, Cafe Martinique, Senor Frogs, etc.) It's a beautiful place, and the kids had fun, but it's hard to escape the feeling every day that you are being robbed. To end on a positive note, one day we did a segway tour which was a BLAST with the kids. Make sure you do the one that is by the water, not the one in town that goes by the fish fry and straw market. Good luck!
