I was well taken care of from start to finish. Once we were met at the airport, I never touched my bags again. We took a van to a boat and arrived at Atlantis around 1am. It was a super smooth transition for a tired group.
The staff was amazing. They seamlessly committed all our names to memory immediately.
What a relaxing and easy trip it was.
I should take a moment to talk about the restaurant. The choices each day were wonderful and I had a difficult time choosing on most days. Eric and all the wait help were most helpful and remembered the different little things that each of us preferred. And I should mention a cake and singing on my birthday. Thank you all so much!
I will be back.
I just finished spending a week with Atlantis Dive for the ScubaBoard Invasion. I can’t say enough about the customer service. They are the best. Everyone knew us by name as soon as we walked in the door. Amazing! The staff knew us.. They knew what we wanted, and how we wanted it.
The food is second to none.. Amazing food! Along with the amazing food, they went out of their way to prepare it the way you wanted it. Gluten free diet? Boom! There it is. Fabulous food.
Back to the food… Breakfast.. Every morning we had a glass of fresh juice.. (Mango, watermelon, pineapple, whatever). It was always a surprise… Excellent! And they gave us a plate of fruit.. Banana, watermelon, mango, pineapple.. Whatever they had). Excellent!
