If splashing in the sea on your family vacation is a must, then head to Paradise Island and the Atlantis Hotel, a full-service resort, in the Bahamas. The Atlantis Resort, in the Caribbean, has a 14-acre waterscape filled with waterslides that are sure to thrill kids of all ages and please everyone on your family vacation.
Now is the best time to plan a family vacation in the Bahamas. Plan now so that when the weather turns cold, your family will head south to a tropical paradise that all families will enjoy.
The Bahamas are located off the coast of Florida. The islands are located close to the Atlantic Gulf Stream, which makes the water temperature average 80 degrees year-round. Think about how wonderful it will seem to you when the climate where you live is freezing.
The beaches are white sand and with more water activities than you can imagine. Swim with the dolphins, snorkel the reef, or dive with the sea creatures. The bright colors combined with the sun, the fresh air and the beautiful sea will create memories that will always be remembered. There are four towers that make up the Atlantis Hotel. The Royal Towers is the largest tower with 1,201 rooms and beautiful water views. All standard rooms have French balconies, while suites have full balconies. You can choose between King or Double Queen beds. This tower includes the sumptuous Bridge Suite with over 5,000 square feet of space and is suspended 17 stories in the air.
The Coral Towers, home of the Kids Club, has 656 luxurious rooms with many amenities decorated in a contemporary and relaxed style. The atrium has a ballroom with a waterfall and a vaulted skylight. The view of your rooms can be the terrace or the sea. Here your choice of beds is one king or two doubles. This is much smaller than the Royal Tower. At the Kids Club, children ages 3 and up and at least 48 inches tall can experience the excitement of feeding the fish in the Estuary Lagoon. They select five children a day to participate in this activity. Register your children with the Atlantis Kids Club for a chance at one of the spots. This activity takes place from Tuesday to Saturday at 2:30 pm. There are two rules, children must have water shoes and be able to enter the lagoon without the help of a parent.
Then there’s the beach tower, which is more moderately priced. The rooms, all of them 423, are decorated in a tropical style. Here you can choose between one king bed or two double beds with a terrace or water view.
Then there is the truly elegant Harborside which has 392 villas. These villas can accommodate from four to ten people. They have one, two or three bedroom options. Each has a kitchen and separate living and sleeping areas. Each villa has a balcony, but views are not guaranteed. It has a gym, a zero-entry pool, a children’s pool and 2 jacuzzis. Harborside guests have full privileges at Atlantis with a free shuttle service. There is lovely relaxed dining on the harbor front.
If you like to gamble, there is a casino at Cable Beach and another at the Atlantis Resort on Paradise Island. The casino at Atlantis encompasses a seven-acre lagoon with skylights and windows that bring the scenery inside. Dale Chihuly, who makes famous glass sculptures, designed the casino with a colorful and vibrant energy. He will find 78 game tables including Blackjack, Mini-Baccarat and Baccarat. And of course what casino would be without Craps, Roulette, Let It Ride and Caribbean Stud Poker. With this being the largest casino in the Caribbean, there are over 800 slot machines for use by casino patrons.
They have three dining options available. The Gourmet plan, which costs $92.00 per day for adults and $40.00 per day for children, gives you the most options. You can get a full American breakfast at each of the five restaurants: Seagrapes, Marketplace, Water’s Edge, Café at the Great Hall of Waters, and Murray’s deli. For dinner, you have a whopping 12 places to choose from: Seagrapes or Water’s Edge, Mama Loo’s, Seafire Steakhouse, Bahamian Club, Fathoms, Marketplace, Nobu, Café at the Great Hall of Waters, Carmines, Café Martinique, or Dune.

The modified American Plan offers relaxed dining without reservations. The cost of this plan is $59.00 per day for adults and $28.00 for children. Here you are served a full American breakfast daily at a choice of four restaurants: Seagrapes, Marketplace, Water’s Edge and Murray’s Delicatessen.
