You start right next to the "Atlantis" and you can easily take a taxi to the Heli-Platz. You have to be there minutes before and you will be weighed again. If you are lucky enough to sit in the front or on the right side of the window, you really get something and security becomes HUGE? written. If you are unlucky enough to sit in the middle back (our heli had a total of 6 passenger seats) it's not quite as good. The provider can't do anything about the fact that you sometimes have poor visibility at the temperatures. But this way you can really see the extent of the palm tree!

Great experience. Staff very attentive and helpful. Hopefully covid is less of an issue in the future but for now it's very much present. Half the staff had mask hanging on their chin. There was 4-person group who were all coughing A LOT and were clearly under the weather but showed up with no mask. The agency provided. About 1/3 of customers had mask hanging around neck or on their chin with nose and mouth fully exposed. I felt extremely uncomfortable so one of the team members put me in a waiting area alone away from the constant coughing. When on vacation you have to think abou testing requirements to return home. Worst case is positive case and you have to remain at location, self quarantine etc, at your own expense. This was a great experience but as long as we have covid the protocols need to be monitored and adhered to.

Booked at home and found very easily. In addition, a visit to the Hotel Atlantis has become something very special. What does not work yet is the registration of different free WLAN accesses. Here you can get access via SMS. This is precisely what is off when you come from Europe
