So, it's going to be my wife and I and our adult son in a 2 bedroom lock-off. I have been reading more and more as the date quickly approaches, but have a few questions.
1) Food. Yes, this is discussed constantly here and yes, I know the food is expensive. We plan to bring snacks, some booze, etc. in one suitcase. We will also be stopping on the way to the resort for supplies at the grocery and liquor stores. We plan on eating breakfast and most lunches in the room, but we want to go out for dinner a few times, too. My wife wants to try Mesa Grill (loves Bobby Flay), but beyond that- what are the best restaurants? I heard the one at Harborside is good, and maybe a fish place in town? We are looking for good food that may not be quite as expensive as other restaurants, but money is not the deciding factor.
Beaches/Pools: I know the pool at Harborside is very nice and uncrowded. We will use this pool a lot, I would think. What are some of the other great pools? I know there are a bunch! Also, what is the beach like? How far away is it?
Activities: We are mostly going to relax, but I'd like to do a few things with my son. The waterpark for sure, but what about any good snorkeling or other activity that shouldn't be missed?
Intangibles: By this I mean any pointers or recommendations for us? We will be there 7 days so we have time to do some things while relaxing!
A few years ago we were on a cruise that stopped at Atlantis for a day. After walking around, hitting the casino and the dig, I never thought I'd be back due to the price. I mean the place is ridiculously opulent and designed for the rich and famous. That's not us, but we can't wait to live that way for a week! Our last trip to the Bahamas was to Aruba for a week at an all-inclusive. Great time and we expect Atlantis to be even better!
Thanks to anyone who comments and shares experiences and ideas, that's why I love TA!
