This romantic addition to the Atlantis complex has 600 suites and few of the design flourishes (at least indoors) of its sister hotels. The interiors (by Jeffrey Beers and David Rockwell) have replaced glitz with elegance and refinement. The breezy reception lobby and wide corridors create a sense of space, while a subtle use of sand and sea colors, conjure a sense of the tropics. The suites are high-style but comfortable and lavishly equipped, some with 42-inch high-definition flat-screen TVs, freestanding bathtubs beside floor-to-ceiling windows, steam showers, Bose 3-2-1 entertainment systems, and headboard reading lamps. The Caribbean version of Bobby Flay's Mesa Grill sports handsome Rockwell-designed Tex-Mex decor and an eye-catching showcase kitchen. If the interiors are restrained, excess takes over outdoors, where you'll find an "ultra pool" (adults only), with chaises in the water and an island of persimmon daybeds. There are also 20 private pool cabanas that look more like teakwood cottages, complete with flat-screen TVs and Internet access (and daily rental rates pricier than most hotel rooms). And as if that's not enough pampering, there's the 30,000-square-foot Mandara Spa.

From the editors of Condé Nast Traveler:
Connected via walkways to Atlantis, the Cove is a refuge of calm within a resort complex that's all about activity. The 600-room tower comes with a celebrity chef–helmed restaurant (Bobby Flay's Mesa Grill), its own slice of beach, and private access to two pools. Rooms, which have a spare aesthetic, are done in muted colors with splashes of orange, and light wood veneered in star-burst designs. They include a big bathroom (two sinks on travertine vanities, shower and toilet behind frosted glass), a sunken sitting area between the bed and the balcony, and two TVs. The service is unfailingly friendly if not always prompt. Mementos of its mega-resort subjugation include required wristbands and high prices (a seven-dollar Häagen-Dazs bar; a four-dollar can of Coke).—2008 Hot List
