Lots of great sunny beaches nearby. Lovely water park Its close to the town with easy access. The Palm island is wonderful and it is the best resort on the island. There are lots of local food places..

Atlantis is a huge, sprawling resort based in Paradise Islands in the Bahamas. The resort includes a casino, aquarium, water park, and an assortment of restaurants, including a buffet. It's a nice resort in a family-friendly sort of way.

This hotel is beautiful. I stayed at the Cove hotel, which is a bit more exclusive than the other Atlantis hotels. The Miami Heat basketball team stayed there when I was there.
I won't lie, it was pretty expensive. Spent about $3k for a week of stay. But you do get a lot of perks. There's a private beach and pool at the Cove. You also get access to the water park, and a little aqua-museum. I believe you can access any of these places for a price if you're not a hotel guest.
My favorite things to do at this resort was the lazy river and water slides at the water park. I also "walked with sharks" where they put in you a suit and a shark tank. Petting dolphins was cool too.
Definitely check out the hotel even if you don't stay there.

Atlantis is the best to stay when visiting the Bahamas. The resort is filled with many things to do! Aquariums, Casino, Shopping, Beach, Snorkeling, etc! They even have a water park with several fun attractions. They even had a free concert on the beach when we were staying there!

Basically, the Atlantis is the ultimate hotel. There is so much to do here, you don't need to leave the resort all week, and we pretty much didn't! First, the Atlantis is a stunning hotel. The public spaces are all grand and luxe. Our room, which was the cheapest available, was not as impressive. There are many levels to choose from, but they get fairly expensive fairly quickly. The room sufficed, though, and the resort more than made up for any deficiencies. The restaurants are incredible. Again, expensive, but we were able to get a dining inclusive option that helped with the cost. The activities are amazing. There are plenty of pools to choose from, plus the beach, and Atlantis has its own waterpark with a wide variety of water slides and a lazy river. Atlantis also has some beautiful aquariums. Of course, there is a large casino for entertainment, and a concert theater as well as a movie theater. The kids club program was pricy but is available for those who need it. Our package also included a dolphin encounter which was fun, and they also offer swimming with dolphins. The Atlantis has exchange privileges with the One and Only club on Paradise Island, where we went one night for dinner. The One and Only Club looks like a quiet and peaceful place to head if you are looking for a romantic getaway. We can't wait to return to the Atlantis, it will never be lost to us!

The hotel is situated in a breathtaking location and it has its own beautiful beach. It is truly a luxury hotel, very expensive but the service and the facilities make up for it. The rooms are wonderful with an amazing view and the food and service are outstanding. I tried everything in the waterpark including the Mayan slide with the shark pool it was a rush and adrenaline burst when you just freefall through a tube into a pool full of sharks. But the most wonderful experience was the dolphin encounter (also very pricy but priceless at the same time), I will never forget this experience, the dolphins were absolutely amazing and you could hug and kiss them or swim with them. It was a dream come true.Recommended for:Luxury Travelers

I WAS STOLEN BY A HOTEL´S STAFF AT THE FRONT DESK OF ATLANTIS ROYAL TOWERS!!!
Unfortunately, as it seems, not only in Brazil consumers have their rights violated. Some companies prefer to take advantage of their position and simply ignore when a costumer faces problems inside their domains. In my case specifically, The Atlantis Paradise Island, located in the Bahamas, a company with a great reputation, didn’t live up to its name.
From the 18th to the 24th of January, both my girlfriend and I, stayed at the Atlantis Royal Towers, in The Bahamas. Even though the service was great and the accommodations wonderful, on the 23rd I decided to pay our bill and, apparently, something went wrong.
Around midnight, 24th, I approached the front desk and explained my wish to end my debt. At first, we tried to solve this using a debit card, however it didn't work. I proceeded to the nearest ATM (in the Casino) and withdrew the amount necessary to pay the bill and returned to my room.
On the last day, I went back to the front desk. I explained to the hotel employee I was checking out and wished to end my debt in cash. The concierge took the money and confirmed that the payment was done, gave me the change and said I owed nothing else. He, then, gave me the receipt in an envelope, which I took and left.
To my uttermost surprise, when my credit card company sent me my bill I noticed that I was being charged again, for the amount which I had already paid IN CASH at the moment of my check-out. For that reason, I immediately, contacted the hole, via phone, to try and solve the issue.
Mrs. Suzanna Knowles-Fernander, Quality Assurance Manager, said that to resolve that matter I would have to send an e-mail soliciting that an administrative investigation took place. Thus, I proceeded as instructed by Mrs. Suzanna Knowles-Fernander and sent an e-mail requiring that the company watched the footage of the security cameras to see that I wasn’t lying and just wanted to preserve my rights.
On February 20th, I sent an e-mail in which I elucidated every detail of the situation. However, the company didn’t respond. I insisted and sent another e-mail on February 28th, to which I got a response on March 4th. And once again, I was taken by surprise.
The hotel offered me a 2 night complimentary stay at the Royal Towers Water view, which added up to US$640.00 and was far from what I had been charged. Hence, on the 15th of March, around 5 p.m., Caribbean time, I tried calling the hotel to discuss the problem, but was unable to find somebody, even Mr. Ghandi Knowles-Thompson – Risk Management Manager, who could solve the question.
Finally, on March 20th, I stayed for over half an hour on the phone with the hotel director, Mrs. Deedee. And, believe it or not, after almost two months, I was told that all the hotel could do for me was to extend their previous offer to a 4 night stay. How they could possibly imagine I would want to spend more money on travelling after the torment it had caused, astonished me.
I was then informed that, if I really sought reimbursement, I would have to take legal measures. As I live in Brazil, the time, trouble, and money I would spend to make my rights prevail are not worth the trouble it would cause me.
Therefore, I just want make other people aware of this situation, so they won’t fall for the same trap, and have to face all the inconveniences I had to.
