Below please see an article I wrote for Atlantis. I have been there several times – it has changed much over the years. It really is a great resort, attention is paid to every detail. It can be both a child’s and parents fantasy vacation. However – I will give the downside – it is a very expensive resort. This deal is probably the least expensive they have been. Economic times are tough for everyone – but the one plus side, is that these luxurious resorts are having trouble filling their rooms, so they are lowering their prices to what mid level resorts usually cost. Just remember – once you get there – everything is expensive. HintL Buy the meal plan! Here is my article:Since my early days living in the great Northeast, I have been connected to warmer weather and greener waters, along with the thick salt air that sticks to your skin.  One such place that I have come across that combine all the things that say ‘vacation’ and “get away” is Atlantis Paradise Island in the Bahamas. This large resort and casino which dominates the island’s real estate, is a mega-plex of an exotic, ancient world making you feel as if you have truly left your present life.  The Atlantis has everything for those of us that feel that money is no object (they house one of the world’s most expensive hotel suites in the world – $25,000 per night) to those of us that are more price savvy.   Made up of 6 different towers and resorts, Atlantis offers many different room types and a variety of restaurants to fit every budget.And now they have stepped up with a wondrous package to combine the Atlantis experience with swimming with the dolphins.This amazing offer starts at $299 for a 3 night stay at this one of a kind resort in Paradise Island.

I wish this was offered when I was there, but being in the travel business, I learn about these deals even before they are out in the media and want to let my readers know first before it sells out.After a memorable day in the water with your new nautical friend, what can be better then a relaxing spa?  The Mandara Spa brings together ancient Balinese healing touches, traditional European therapies and the natural elements indigenous to The Bahamas. Family activities are also available at Atlantis.  Take your time gliding down the lazy river ride or watch the kids act like, well kids, in their own pools which are located throughout the mega-resort; not to mention the water parks!  Take a bit of home on your vacation with the Atlantis Theatre as they show some of the newest releases on a big screen and enjoy some popcorn. This vacation is sure to appease all those that are looking for a high-end vacation with mid range pricing and certainly more then just the typical beach front resort.  From relaxed and tropical to contemporary and elegant this vacation is full of imagination and relaxation which is exactly what the folks at Atlantis are looking to deliver, and with this package they do just that.  So, on your next trip, make it one that will captivate your imagination and save some money at the same time.396
