Caribbean

And The Winner Is…

Hi everyone!

For those of you that have read my previous 2 vacation-related posts, you know all the Hell I have gone through to figure out where we are going on vacation. I am proud to announce that the winner is…..

ATLANTIS, BAHAMAS!

While I will admit I was a little upset that Ireland didn’t get chosen, we found out that we will be going to Ireland in June 2016!

But, back to Atlantis…

For those of you who do not know what I am talking about, Atlantis is a huge resort on Paradise Island in the Bahamas (located off Nassau)  . This resort consists of the following:

  • 6 hotels
  • 11 swimming areas
  • 11 water slides
  • 2 lazy rivers
  • 3 beaches
  • 14 lagoons
  • 21 restaurants
  • 19 bars and lounges
  • Casino

For a complete list of restaurants with price range, menus, and locations, click the link below:

Since Atlantis is NOT all-inclusive, you either pay for each meal as you go, OR you can choose from 1 of 3 dining plans.

  • Value Dining Plan

-$80.00 per Adult, per day; $30 per Child, per day (7-11 years old); Children under 6 eat FREE with purchase of an adult dining plan

  • Atlantis Dining Plan (Excludes Restaurants at The Reef & The Cove)

-$130 per Adult, per day; -$50 per Child, per day (7-11 years old); Children under 6 eat FREE with purchase of an adult dining plan

  • Reef And Cove Dining Plan (Not limited to these resorts)

– $130 per Adult, per day; $50 per Child, per day (7-11 years old); Children under 6 eat FREE with purchase of an adult dining plan

From what I can tell, I have a lot ahead of me to prepare for this vacation. All I know is that we are staying at the Royal Towers. Beyond that, I am clueless. There are 6 hotels rated as follows:

  • Beach Tower (Value)
  • Coral Towers (Moderate)
  • Harborside Resort (Moderate)
  • Royal Towers (Deluxe)
  • The Reef (Residential Luxury)
  • The Cove (Luxury)

Also, for your convenience (or lack there of), there is an Atlantis App for iPhone and Android. I don’t know about you, but I generally turn off my network settings when I travel out of the states and the WiFi at the resort will set you back a whopping $19.95 for 24 Hours, $57.85 for 72 Hours, $75.80 for 96 hours, $91.75 for 120 Hours, $107.70 for 144 Hours and $123.65 for 168 hours. You may connect up to 4 devices. If you ask me, I think I will take my chances and do without my phone for a week.

That’s all I have to talk about today! Until next time!
