At the tail-end of Summer, right about the time the kids were starting into school, our family ventured off to the Atlantis Hotel Bahamas!
The question I get most after that is… “Did you take the kids?” We sure did! DNH Girl was 3.5 and DNH Boy was 10 month. And they did great!
My main concern was around the flights. Its no feat travelling with little ones, and especially cross country and further. We decided on the red-eye flight out to the east coast and then connected on the first flight out that next morning.
The resort is just about a half-hour taxi ride from the airport and easy to get to! It really is quite the sight when you drive up and see the magnificent of the towers!
Our room was very nice and was conveniently located. Added bonus was that right off our balcony there was a lagoon of nurse sharks!!! Was a definite hit with DNH Girl!
Day 1: Our first day was filled with a few naps to catch up on some sleep and then it was off to explore and start our Atlantis experience. Our Nana and Grandpa joined us later that afternoon and so it made it that much sweeter!
On one of the days, sweet girl had her hair braided, which was super cute and fun!
The most frequently asked questions have been around the cost and whether it is as high priced as you read about on the Internet. To that I answer this: They are always having deals on the room rates. The room rates during the time we went started at $99 a night and kids eat free. In terms of the meals, to us they were comparable to a Las Vegas or something of that nature. Sure, you aren’t going to pay $4 for a burger but you are only going to pay about $12. There are restaurants that range in price from about $15 a meal to $100 a meal. We had the kids with us, so we weren’t necessarily frequenting the steak houses every night. Drinks were anywhere from $5 to $10 for the super fruity umbrella type tasty goodness drinks!
