Atlantis Cove vs. Reef and booking question

In May my daughter will graduate from college. Yeah!! I am beginning to research the Atlantis to celebrate this happy time. My sister and her 21 yr old daughter will also join us. So far I have narrowed it down to the Cove and the Reef, but am I overlooking something? (this is a very special occasion, so budget is not a "huge" factor this trip) Any thoughts as to which would be better suited for us? Could anyone briefly describe the property layout? I have not been to the Atlantis since these 2 were added.

Also, is it best to book directly with resort or through travel agent?
Thanks!

Here's a resort map

You have to zoom in to take a look. As far as prices, you can get the same price through the Atlantis website, Expedia or a travel agent. Sundays through Wednesdays are the cheapest. They have a fourth night free deal going on. I don't think I've ever seen that before. Better grab it!

I've stayed at both- the Reef-3x, the Cove-1x....the Reef is great when we travel with our young kids...you definitely need to stay at the Cove. It's geared for adults- you will love it but the high prices can get old...we ALWAYS go to the grocery for water, liquor, snacks.....water at the pool is apprx $8.00-----to us, Atlantis is a wonderful vacation, we've been 9 times...coming from CA that says a lot...long journey!

Thank you flyaway for your reply. We really want to stay at the Cove, but I've priced 2 room (connecting) and it's just too high for our budget. Do you think we would be totally crazy for the 4 of us to share one room at the Cove.... one bath with 4 women might get a little tight!!
If you have any other suggestion how we could get more space, please let me know. Thank you.

Why not price the Royal Towers? You may be able to handle two rooms there.
