Sometimes, you want the razzle-dazzle of an over-the-top, stuffed-to-the-gills mega resort, where extras like fantastic restaurants, cool pools, golf courses, beaches, entertainment, and water parks are never far away.The number of rooms, lavishness of amenities, scale of the property, and range of features available are all taken into consideration when covering a megaresort.
We investigated the ins and outs, nooks and crannies, and hidden secrets of The Atlantis Resort in the Bahamas to find out what this monster really looks like. We learned that the hotel is crowded, overpriced, and filled with non-guests whom the resort lures in with its “Discover Atlantis” tours to gamble and shop.
Much like Disney World, plan to wait in line for just about everything — a serving at the buffet, a ride down the water slide, or just a seat at any of the restaurants.
That being said, its stunning architecture, exceptional water park, famous casino, three beaches, 11 otherworldly pools, and 21 superb restaurants make the 4,000-room Atlantis noteworthy.
No other resort, anywhere in the Caribbean, can compete with its dining or attractions.
