Well, Day one was just fantastic. We are in the west tower of Royal Towers and our view overlooks part of aquaventure and The Cove Hotel. The weather was blah today but I don't know if I am blaming Atlantis or George W. yet....anyway first impressions on my third visit..
Check in was a breeze, really not much else I can say. We arrived at 12:30 and were in our room by 1:00...
Aquaventure is Awesome! I swear you can float all day and not take the same course twice. there are so many pathways that it is just a blast. All the pools toward the cove are great. Everyone seems to gather at the kid play area and the Mayan temple. The other Pools and entrances you can take your pick of where to set up for the day.
There are soooooo many lounge chairs, the only reason you would have to go early and reserve is if you wanted to sit over by the Mayan Temple.
If you are arriving anytime this week, Jay-Z and Beyonce are here and the 10th,11th and 12th are going to be crazy...all the high end eateries are booked for those days and Jay-Z is doing a concert....Things could get interesting. We are eating Mosaic tonight, Nobu tomorrow and Mesa Grill on Wednesday. From there its going to be a crap shoot from what I can tell. Our cabbie recommended the fish fry, any comments?
The staff has been great and friendly, from the bell hop to the repair man who fixed a minor problem with our sink.
haven't heard a word on timeshares....
haven't seen a breast yet......haven't been hunting them though either (wife wouldn't be too happy)
The water on aquaventure really doesn't "shoot you in the face". that is not to say that it never did but today all the nozzles (they are like jacuzzi tub jets) are pointed downward.
Having a Great time....I will check in later.
