Family Trip to Atlantis: The Cove & The Reef, Virtuoso Properties
Two of the titles in this subject line are luxury accommodations at the Atlantis Resort on Paradise Island. One of these things is not like the other one, but we’ll get to that eventually.
I have to give a HUGE thank you to our rep, Karime, for setting me up a site inspection with the wonderful Karen – you two went above and beyond to make sure our time at Atlantis was wonderful, and I’m confident that these two will do the same for guests we send their way. Today I toured the two Virtuoso towers of Atlantis, The Reef & The Cove.
The Reef is a condominium style property – about 67% of the rooms are independently owned – and it is perfect for families. The Studio room is perfectly spacious and has almost everything you would need, but the step up (one bedroom units) have a full kitchen. The One Bedroom Deluxe units go beyond that, offering spacious accommodations and panoramic views. Check out some photos:
Next we toured The Cove, an all-suite tower that’s modern look landed it on the front of Virtuoso’s Best of the Best magazine this past year. The Cove had a more modern feel and is right on an adults-only pool.
The Reef offered the best of a homey condo and the amenities of the resort, so I feel it’s a little more appropriate for larger families.
You honestly can’t go wrong at either property. Guests of The Cove & The Reef have access to everything at Atlantis, but they have the advantage of private pools & a private beach. Plus, book either property through me and receive complimentary upgrades if available, daily breakfast, and a $100 food & beverage credit!
Atlantis really goes above and beyond for families – their new, state-of-the-art Teen Lounge is perfect for teens ages 13-17, complete with a dance floor, stage, dining area, private TV rooms, and a gaming center:
We grabbed a quick bite to eat at Virgil’s, a BBQ joint near the main towers, and toured the aquariums. It was a little to chilly for us to get on the slides, so we walked around and enjoyed the sites. I also came across some terrifying creatures. In preparation for my possible shark-diving excursion in South Africa in May, I tried to face my fears in the predators’ tunnel. I think I’m getting over the fear, little by little. Maybe.
Maybe. Some more photos from the day:
