Opened in 2007, the Reef is one of the two newer room towers at the Atlantis Paradise Island Resort
. Yet unlike the adult-oriented Cove, the Reef is family-friendly. The style is condo-residential, with kitchenettes that better help mom and dad budget and organize. All have private balconies, but the deluxe options have full ocean views and are steps from the beach. Reef guests share a private pool, called Cascades, and a section of beach with guests of the Cove, many of whom—to the benefit of Reef families—have little interest in it because they are there for the party action at the Cove’s adults-only Cain Pool. While the Reef sits at the far end of the Atlantis property, with almost no dining options of its own, all of the resort’s attractions and activities are only a short walk, or free shuttle ride, away.
