Honestly, I've only had to use the support documentation, which is a rare thing to say. Often, services will have such poor documentation that talking to support staff is mandatory, but I've been able to get everything done by just reading the guides already out there. I can't say if the further support is good, but not needing it is better.

Until today, I have never needed support to Route53 because the documentation is great. But, I have needed it for other services. And they're near perfect always. Except that they don't have Portuguese support yet and they're sometimes slow to answer (48 hours in non-critical ones, in two tickets). But usually, they're amazing!

AWS has highly-trained engineers, a large network of subject-matter experts, and community members that other cloud providers generally lag. They can answer best practices questions and provide guidance on the configuration and in helping you achieve the outcomes that is needed to make businesses successful. They have a customer-centric approach towards support that sets AWS apart.

The product is simple enough that the docs and the UI stand on their own. Its one of the least confusing (/most intuitive) AWS products. As with all Amazon products, don't expect strong email or human support-- you're going to be using their documentation. If you need a human to guide you through the DNS process, you should consider a tool like CloudFlare or NameCheap; if you're a developer, Route53 is where you want to be.
