I thought this was too good to be true! But, that was not the case- it was true and it was wonderful!!! Fantastic space- plenty of room, great decor, and very clean.They did not cut corners when it came to the quality of materials they used to build, which I appreciated. The beach was a short walk- completely ok for anyone who walks anywhere. I was surprised to find some people had an issue with this- I walk further to the subway everyday, and that's not far!!! all towels included, including beach towels, washer and dryer in the room, and the hairdryer was really great and powerful- do not bring yours even if you are picky about this. I brought with me detergent for the dishwasher and clothes washer, and hand soap (as I didn't want to buy huge quantities of any of this when there). Tupperware was included, but I brought my own ziplock bags. I wish there had been a document outlining amenities at the resort and information. They did supply a cell phone which you could make unlimited local calls, but we initially didn't know what it was for (beware- you must make dinner reservations in TCI- a few days in advance).The front desk has beach chairs and umbrellas to borrow. The Atrium is not near all of the other resorts, but in the gated community of Leeward, which we liked. It was only a 5 minute drive to where the bulk of resorts, restaurants, and grocery store are.
Absolutely rent a car.You cannot stay here without it- don't even think about it. Rent from Grace Bay car rentals and book as soon as you make your hotel reservation. Our favorite restaurants were Coco Bistro and Lemon Cafe. Magnolia has a great view, but the food was really quite salty. Enjoy the view/sunset with a drink at the bar instead. Best beach bar was Anacona (Grace Bay Club)-great drinks and fantastic decor. Other was at the Gansevoort Resort- again, great design and the bar menu was great. Ate at Mango Reef, which was recommended to us- good food, but the atmosphere/decor lacking. Lots of kids and familes, which is fine, but as a younger couple we would have rather spent the same on a great meal at Coco Bistro or Lemon cafe. Do not go to Pizza Pizza. The place was almost empty and then we were told they were out of medium pizzas- only had large. This told me 2 things- they weren't smart enough to cut the large one down, and were not using fresh dough, so we left and went to the diner in Saltmills- good food and good prices.
Overall- a fantastic stay!!!
