Editor’s Review of Beach Tower at Atlantis

Along with Coral Towers, Beach Tower was one of the two original hotels in the resort, once owned by Merv Griffin before it was bought out and turned into part of Atlantis in 1994. Of all of the hotel properties at Atlantis, it has two distinctions: it is the cheapest accommodations, and it is the farthest away from the action. Compared to bustling Royal Towers, Beach Tower has a sleepy, even old-school feel of a resort from yesteryear, with bland architecture and a cookie-cutter lobby. At the same time, rooms here go for some $150 to $200 less than Royal Towers, making this an attraction option for families on a budget. And honestly, it is really only a ... more short walk or shuttle bus ride from all of the action. If you time it well, you can leave your room each morning, sample the waterslides, aquariums, and beaches of the resort and not return until you are good and tired at night.

Beach Tower also has a few other things going for it -- especially access to its own lagoon/aquarium area complete with its own relaxing river raft ride. It is also only a short walk to Marina Village, a faux-village area with shopping and budget eateries that fronts the marina and the Harborside Resort area. Together with a few attractively priced eateries in the tower itself, staying her makes it easy to experience all of the fun of Atlantis without breaking the bank (too much).

What place! Beautiful!!. The minute we reached the hotel the courteous staff could not do enough for us. The place was spotless and it looked that was throughout our week stay. The rooms were spacious and the view we had was ...

We took a large family vacation. I was quite disappointed as I was really looking forward to spending time at the Atlantis as it is portrayed quite well. We found just the opposite. Service was terrible. It took forever for ...

The 423 rooms at Beach Tower are the smallest in the resort (275 square feet), but apart from size, they are nearly identical to those found in posh Royal Towers, including the same plush king beds, attractive furnishings with a subdued tropical color palette, flat screen TVs, and marble baths -- making them a good value starting at $355. Many of them also have full-sized balconies, complete with seating. With two double beds instead of a king, guest rooms can fit up to four adults and one child; no suites are available. Rooms are available with either Terrace or Water views.
