It really is a great place to visit for people of all ages! You will never find yourself bored while on your visit there!

This looks like such an amazing place to visit. I have had many friends go here. I really want to go there myself.

Hopefully you will get a chance to visit one day! Would love to hear all about your experience!

Atlantis looks amazing! I’d love to go to the Bahamas and visit, this resort looks immaculate!

This looks like such a beautiful destination. I would love to sip a nice drink here and relax and enjoy the sun. I could definitely use a vacation now.

Whoa this place is fancy! Are there more affordable accommodation options for the poor peasants of my kind? 😛

If you don’t like the prices that Atlantis offers another awesome deal is to stay at the Comfort Suites Paradise Island and it gives you total access to the Atlantis property. It’s even right next door!

Talk about luxury! Oh my. This is a dream that I can only hope to come true in a dream. If I win the lottery, I am going to go on a vacation there. Or maybe buy some property there! It definitely looks like paradise.

This place looks absolutely incredible. I have heard about Atlantis but I really wasn’t that excited about it until now. I will have to see what I can do to visit there soon.

Atlantis looks like an amazing place to visit!! I could really use a getaway and this looks like the perfect place 🙂

I have heard so much about Atlantis, it certainly is a must visit destination. I like that they have so many things to do around there so you don’t get bored.

This is somewhere I would love to visit one day a real bucket list item! It looks beautiful and relaxing, just sitting on the beach with a drink ahhh!

I would love to visit the Bahamas! Your photos look gorgeous and I know that no beach photos do it justice than going in person.

Wow. Those are really awesome places to stay, however the prices seem a little steep. If I have a lot of spending money though, why not! It will be a once in a lifetime experience!

If you find the prices a bit too high there is a great opportunity to stay next door at the Comfort Suites Paradise Island but still get full access to the Atlantis property (waterpark, beaches, pools, restaurants and more!)

Wow! Bahamas! I only hear about this wonderful place from my friends. I really should try to get here.

We’ve been thinking of a family vacation here when my kids are a bit older. Your post was very helpful with things to think about as we keep this trip in mind.

Your kids would love it here! Chris came here as a young boy and had so much fun! It is very safe for kids to ride the lazy river or the slides as there are life guards at every turn, in all the pools and slides. The resort itself is very safe and you and the kids would feel very comfortable and have the vacation of a lifetime!
