Comfort Suites is a budget-friendly resort located next door to Atlantis Resort on Paradise Island, Bahamas. The hotel has its own pool and is in the heart of Nassau’s Marina Village shopping and dining area, but its claim to fame is a connection to Atlantis: The hotel is the only property on the island that is allowed to provide full use of Atlantis facilities to its guests at no additional charge.
Recently renovated, comfortable all-suite rooms feature sofa beds and dividers between sitting and sleeping areas, as well as empty mini-refrigerators and in-room microwaves. The multi-million dollar renovation included new bedding, beds, draperies, lamp, artwork and rugs. Guest bathrooms received new granite countertops and lighting. The property also refurbished the onsite restaurant, Crusoe’s, with new chairs, tables, and dark wood buffet cabinets. The hotel’s lobby, patio deck, parking lot and wedding gazebo also received a facelift. A pool is located next to the hotel’s restaurant, the latter providing free breakfast to hotel guests daily, as well as a light lunch option. The hotel features coin-operated laundry and provides free Wi-Fi in-room and in its business center. A free shuttle will drop your family at Atlantis’ various hotels.

Rooms & Rates
Comfort Suites features 223 renovated junior suites with a sitting area and a sleeping area separated by a half divider. Rooms come with either a king-sized bed or two double beds and both come with a sleeper sofa. Unfortunately, even with two double beds and a sleeper sofa, only four people are permitted in a room, so families with five or more are required to book two rooms.
Rooms are equipped with a small flat-screen TV, free Wi-Fi, mini fridge, in-room safe and coffeemaker. Microwaves are available by request at no charge. Rooms feature either garden or pool views. The hotel is not located directly on the beach and does not provide beach views.
First off let me say that the room was terrific. Really clean, really a great size for 2 people....wished we’d had the Grands drive over and join us. The kitchenette was perfect for making a picnic or pouring wine.
The staff was kind and helpful. Yeah! We are going back to Charleston and we will stay we, again!

We stayed here for Thanksgiving weekend and had a great time. The hotel is located directly across from Atlantis with all the perks of Atlantis. We knew that food costs with the added 27% was going to be our main issue so having Dunkin Donuts and Anthony's restaurant (cheaper than Atlantis) next door was a bonus. We chose this hotel over atlantis even though Atlantis was a cheaper package because of the free breakfast and it was a great choice because it saved us the cost of another outrageously priced meal. Lots of breakfast choices and always could find a seat. Staff were very attentive to clear and wipe tables for next guests. The pool area next to breakfast area was so nice and well kept. Always towels available and life guards on duty. We only had one who was on his phone watching videos the others were watching the pool. The pool bar is a great touch and the kids kept splashing the bar and the lovely bartender just wiped it with a smile every time as she could see they were having fun. The pool being open till 8pm was great as most caribbean hotel pools close at dusk. We would order a pizza from the hotel restaurant ($21 huge and filling), kids would swim and I would watch sports on TV while we waited and they always brought it to us at the pool.
Atlantis is a 3 min. Walk. Even with the map this place is gorgeous, huge and tricky to navigate as during the low season they had blocked off some areas and u have to go around. We got our wristbands on the first day after trying to find the desk for awhile. I had read some reviews of people having to get a new band everyday but we got one for the four days. After the first day we were pretty comfortable with the layout. It was busy not everyday a couple days I guess no cruises in port so no lines at all. We did not see everything as so much to see and do. Take away Points: loved u could have as many towels as u like, choices of slides for all ages or swim levels, beach chairs have Canopy's for shade though water was rough on all beaches except lagoons. We spent sometime on last day at the dig looking at Aquarium and played games at arcade nice to have some other options if it rained.
We had issues with our account and we couldn't sign anything to the room and had to look for restaurants that took cash there are a few and signs are posted as I wanted to use cash not credit. It never got resolved and was an annoyance to carry cash but minor glitch in paradise due to short time frame. Take time to read menus at pool side fast food places as some will have combos $13 for burger, fries and drink and others have all separate so you pay like $16 when u add it up. The food was good better than expected. I have to say I was expecting mediocre service as the gratuity is included in pricing but we were pleasantly suprised that service was great. We wouldn't come during peak time too much waiting and if you don't like walking this is not for you as the property is so spread out. Pack lots of snacks to cut down on food costs. Despite food costs great 4 day trip short flight short shuttle to airport.
Pools and Water Park
The hotel has a pool, which is relatively quiet because most families go to neighboring Atlantis Resort to enjoy its exclusive features. Atlantis' Aquaventure Water Park with river rapids, waterslides, beaches and pools is a popular draw, and because the bigger kids prefer the water park of Atlantis, the Comfort Suites pool is actually very good for younger kids or escaping the crowds and chaos.
Atlantis' kid-friendly attractions also include an aquarium, dolphin swim, kids' club, teen nightclub, 'tween club, golf and a teen-friendly spa. All Comfort Suites guests enjoy complimentary access to Atlantis' facilities.
The free hot American breakfast is served daily from 7 to 10 a.m. in the newly renovated Breakfast Salon. A light lunch menu is available in the restaurant or poolside, where there is also a swim-up bar.
Crusoe's Garden Restaurant
Located by the pool, this casual indoor/outdoor restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. Guests will also find a swim-up bar at the pool, which is open from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.

The Art of Smart Timing
During high season, which runs from the holidays through spring break, rooms start at $300 per night, which is a considerable difference from most of Atlantis' rates, making the hotel a good choice, even during peak season. Nassau is located in the hurricane zone, with hurricane season running from late summer to early fall.
Nassau is just 35 minutes from South Florida and 2.5 hours from New York. Comfort Suites Paradise Island is 30 minutes from Nassau International Airport.
A free shuttle will drop your family at Atlantis' various hotels.
