What to do, what to do?! Am trying to decide between a beach tower room and a room at comfort suites. With the deals Atlantis is running now, we can stay there for about the same money as the comfort suites. How do the rooms compare? Are the comfort suite rooms considerably bigger? We are a family of 4 and my hubby has a back problem. Any comments on the mattresses at either hotel?

Hi, I just returned froma week stay at the Comfort Suites. Our room was comfortable and clean (non smoking) in the new wing. WE had 2 double beds and a pullout that was actually (somewhat) sleepable. A bit of a walk from that side of the hotel but well worth it. Save the $, you will need it at Atlantis for the $15 sandwiches!

Dear Help,
If the prices are the same, stay at the Beach Tower. The only reason to stay off-site Atlantis is to save money. The Beach Tower is so close to the beach, and has very cool caves (aquarium) to explore. Plus it will be much easier to just follow the "board walk" over to the Mayan Temple.

Atlantis often runs specials which make their prices not too much more than the Comfort Suites. If you can get the Beach Tower for a comparable price, why even consider the Comfort Suites? It is close, but not nearly as convenient as just being able to run to your room until that inevitable afternoon shower is over on the beach!

My concern with the beach tower room over comfort suites is that the room might be too small for 2 adults and 2 children. Harborside villas are full during the week we are vacationing and upgrading to a suite at Atlantis would be too expensive for us. I am also concerned about the 2 double beds in the Beach tower. Does anyone know if they are true doubles? We stayed in a Sheraton in NY this past weekend and the doubles seemed more like 1 1/2 twins to us! My other thought was to request a king bed and 2 rollaways for the kids. That way, we could fold up the rollaways during the day and have more space to move around the room. Also, my husband is a light sleeper with back problems and he would probably be more comfortable in a king bed. The kids actually think the rollaways are a neat option! Any comments on Beach Tower rooms and their beds (mattresses firm?) are very welcome!

Helpme: We had 2 adults and 2 kids stay in one room at the Coral Towers, with 2 double beds. They are real double beds and were quite comfortable considering the size (we're used to king size, so this was definately cozier!). There was a little table and 2 chairs in the corner and a terrace with 2 chairs, where we enjoyed sitting looking at the ocean. We didn't feel the room was too small, but we weren't inside for long periods of time (other than sleeping).

Cindy, thanks for your response. I have been told that the Beach and Coral tower rooms are the same size so the two doubles may not be a problem if you felt there was enough room. Do you feel there would be room enough for 2 rollaways with a king as an alternative and that this would provide us with some extra space when dressing, etc... or do you think the rollaways would make the room look like an obstacle course? Is there a place to fold them up and stick them for the day......a closet, an empty corner?

I didn't see a room with a king sized bed, but since it would roughly be the same size as 2 doubles then adding 2 rollaway beds would make the room feel crammed. You'd have to be creative in moving around the furniture to make it comfortable. There is one closet with sliding doors. You might be able to squash a bed in there if you don't plan on using the closet for clothes, but I'm not sure the aggrevation of doing this everyday will be worthwhile.
