ABOUT THE RESORTS
Have Atlantis Access

ATLANTIS
Atlantis is one of the well-known resorts on Paradise Island in the Bahamas. Words can’t explain how beautiful this resort is, not to mention it sits between the ocean and a beautiful yacht-filled Marina. I urge you to go to the website and see what it has to offer.
 
Go to website and click on the Stay tab choose which tower or villa you would like to reside at.
 
This resort consists of different areas you can reside in. They all come with varying ranges of price in that you will still be considered staying at the Atlantis.
Here are lists of the different areas you can reside: Coral Towers, Beach Towers, Royal Towers, The Cove, The Reef and Villas at Harbourside. The Cove and The Reef are more on the pricey side and have additional benefits to the Atlantis(private Beach etc.).Harbourside are villas suited for families or groups of up to 9. Harbourside Villa Pros:
Spacious 1 and 2 bedroom villas with full kitchen and living rooms,shuttle to Atlantis, close to Marina,FULLaccess to the Atlantis, you can go to a local grocery store get food and cook it yourself to cut back on the cost of food. The Cons: More pricey, you have to walk to Atlantis when the shuttle is not running. You would have to go to their website to get more info.
 
 Other things to know about the Atlantis
 
This resort has so much to offer from casinos, swim with dolphins, Movie Theater, Nightclubs, a HUGE Adventure water park, numerous casual to upscale dining, beaches, jet skiing, in and outdoor aquarium and much much more. In staying here, it makes it easy for us to be in one place when it comes time to depart for the various events.
The Pros of this resort, a lot to do in one centralized location, most of us from Stateside will reside here at this resort, more accessible for us to meet up; you don't have to get wristbands every day to visit the Adventure Water Park. The Cons, it may be a bit more pricey.
 

 
Comfort Suites Rooms

COMFORT SUITES
Comfort Suites is another Resort across the street, in walking distance to the Atlantis, if your budget does not allow you to reside at Atlantis. Comfort Suites is a newly renovated Resort. The Pros are as follows: Hot breakfast included, rooms are nice and clean, you still get access to the entire Atlantis resort including the Adventurous Water Park. (This is over $100 value that another outside guest has to pay daily.) The cons: you will have to walk to get to the Atlantis even though it’s across the street, the Atlantis is so vast that it will take at least 5 to 10 mins to get to the water park area, beach area, etc. please keep that in mind. You will also have to visit the adventures desk every day to get a band to have access to the aquarium and water park area. Making an additional stop by the Adventures desk will add to your time to get to relaxation and all the fun.
