  1. The Atlanits has been on our list of places to stay for years. Every time we chicken out and end up going some where less expensive! Someday, before the kids decide they are too cool to travel with me…we will get there. Great post:)

  2. Modern Mom – I can’t say I blame you for your hesitation, but I also think that no matter what their age, your kids will think you are cool if you take them to Atlantis.

    Meg – You are definitely right. I actually saw more than one family group while we were there. And this resort gives you room to spread out, which I think is probably a good thing when it comes to vacations with the extended family.

    Carolina – Tommy is my hero. Although Matt did do a great job of finding lots of fun things to do while Teddy and I were gone.

  3. Thank you, Mara for a great series. I love how you wrote the realistic detail and put all the pro and con there without sugar coating the story.

    I’m with Modern mom that I have been looking at Atlantis for years (since when we lived in FL where it was very easy to go there) but have never feel that I want to spend that much money in a resort.

    Do they offer a day pass or something in that nature for you to enjoy resort amenity without staying at the resort?

  4. MG – thank you for that helpful tip – anyone who is interested in exploring what MG is talking about further, please see her helpful site – there’s a link at the end of her comment. She’s got tips on what to bring with you if you’re interested in self-catering.

    Amy – Yes, you can buy a wristband that will let you look at the aquariums, swim in the pools, and use the waterpark. I haven’t been able to find out yet what it costs.

  5. i guess youre very rich to consider and go to a place like atlantic resort bahamas. well some people are lucky and some not.

  6. I love this part of the country-the water is clean and so warm and there is just so much to see. Your blog is awesome, I love how much traveling do but I am also so jealous! I was just in Florida and had the best time with my own kids. We were in Central FL though, near Orlando. Palm Bay was phenomenal and the beaches were prime. We stayed at this great place, the Palm Bay Hotel (www.palmbay-hotel.com). Affordable and well to do!

  7. The Atlantis is great. You make some great points about the Coral and Beach tower. I would also recommend staying at the Harborside Resort at Atlantis if you are traveling with kids. It gives you more space and a dinning area. The rooms can get pricey, but you can also find unit owners that are willing to rent for the same or less than you would pay for the coral/beach towers. All and all you can’t go wrong with the Atlantis.

  8. Great tips, I have some additional tips on my site as well that are primarily for staying at the Harborside Resort timeshares but some of them may help at the Atlantis as well. The Atlantis can be very expensive but it doesn’t have to be.

  9. Atlantis – 5th time 2015 – You do not need to buy the food package and it may not make sense to do it with little kids. We ate and the 5 star restaurants and loved it. Its not worth paying so much for a 9 year old child who eats very little or is very fussy. Need more night life there but other then that I love it there.
