The catering manager here made sure my food needs were all taken care of! She even went to Whole Foods to buy some items just for my personal needs. She also made an effort to go online and educate herself on gluten free meals. I had a special meal made for me at each dining event we had. Kudos to this Hotel!

After a long day at Sea World, we decided to eat dinner at Bonefish. Bonefish is a chain restaruant that has a gluten free menu at all their locations throughout the U.S. Although their menu is limited, it was nice to know I could eat something safe. I ordered a greek salad, and a chicken dish with steamed veggies. The service was excellent, and I enjoyed my meal. We will go back again.

Atlantis is a wonderful place to vacation. I was not overly impressed with the gluten free options. We chose the basic meal plan option which allowed us to eat at 4 different restaruants including breakfast and dinner. My husband did let the resort know of my needs and they did offer several suggestions on their menu. This is why we went with the meal plan. The breakfast was a buffet each day and they did have your basic, eggs, bacon,oatmeal, fruit etc.. but no gluten free specialites, breads, waffles ect.. When I asked the waitress about g/f options she did not understand me at all. I asked the chef and he geared me towards the foods that I already knew were safe. It became a bit redundant with the breakfast buffet each morning. The dinners were about the same. We had the option of buffet dining which again offered some chicken, steak, seafood,fruit, but no breads or dessert gluten free options. We did dine at a restaruant called Bimini Road in the Marina Village which was amazing! Because this was not a buffett I could order accorging to my needs and was much happier. This was just one of 2 sit down restaurants within our meal plan. We were not able to get into the other restaruant which reqired reservations. They were booked the entire time we were there. All 7 days!! My suggestion would to be to go with the gourmet meal plan which offers more restaruant options, or to skip the meal plan altogether, which would allow you more variety. You must make your restaruant reservations at least 2-3 weeks before. Otherwise you will be stuck like us with the buffet options. The resort is extremley expensive!!! So save up before you go for food and drinks. Breakfast for a family of 4 was about $100 and dinner was about $200. The lunches at the pool/ water park area have your typical burgers/ hot dogs. No real gluten free specialties. For lunch they did offer veges/ fruit for $9.00!! I believe with better planning on our end, it would have been a bit easier on me. I am the only one with food allergies so I just made the best of it. Call the resort ahead of time, they really will work with you. Our issue was we were not aware how important it is to make your dining reservations 2-3 weeks before you leave. They did not communicate this to us. We will not chose a meal plan option on our next visit. We will go back! It was an amazing vacation and we had a blast. Just be prepared and plan ahead and your dining experince will be a breeze! You can also travel off of the resort and go to the grocery store and buy snacks there. The Reef Restort in Atlantis offers condos with full size kitchens. Pack your own snacks and save yourself on knowing what you are eating and some money.
