Top 9 Atlantis Vacation Tips and Tricks

Here are the top 9 expert tips you must know before going to the Atlantis!

  1. Transportation: TAXIS are readily available at the airport and the hotels but if you need CARSEATS or want to pre-arrange transportation contact SANDRA’S TAXI and TOURS. Sandy and her crew are amazing.  She has transportation available for small families or large groups.  She is extremely responsive via e-mail and reliable. Tell her Dana from Chicago sent you.
  2. Family Dining: For a casual dinner off property walk across the street to MARGARITAVILLE at ferry terminal.  Fun atmosphere with Jimmy Buffet music playing – I saw lots of families eating an early dinner here.  Hey, it’s 5 o’clock somewhere!
  3. Beach Bums: My favorite beach is ATLANTIS BEACH WEST (closest to Coral and Royal Tower). Gorgeous water and beautiful sand.  Bring $30.00 cash to have “Famous Amos” set up an umbrella and 2 chairs.  There are plenty of chairs on the beach but if you want shade get the umbrella set up.
  4. Cocktails: We loved the fresh COCONUT DRINKS at Atlantis Beach West.  $10.00 for alcoholic drinks and $7.00 for non-alcoholic.   Bahama Mama or Pina Colada.  We loved the Pina Colada!  After we were done with the drink, the guy will chop the fresh coconut up and give it to you in a bag to eat – Yum!
  5. Authentic Dining: For an AUTHENTIC BAHAMIAN DINING experience take a taxi to the FISH FRY. About 15 minutes away by cab, this is where the locals go. It has become quite touristy but my local sources say the best spots are “Oh Andres” and Bruno’s.   Oh Andres has air conditioning and Bruno’s has a lovely balcony with great views.  Frankie’s Gone Bananas is also a favorite.
  6. Booze Cruise: I met several young people who loved the SANDY TOES BOOZE CRUISE. This can be set up at the Atlantis.   You can stop by the tour desk in the CORAL TOWER at the Atlantis to set up any tours and get brochures.  Sounded like a great excursion for college kids.
  7. Fitness: YOGA AND SPINNING classes are FREE at the Fitness center and the classes are amazing! My daughter and I did a 45 minute yoga class in a clean, nice studio with a great instructor.  Check your daily flyer for times.
  8. Kids Activity: A great activity for YOUNG CHILDREN (ages 3-6) is the SEA SQUIRTS. $42.00 for an hour (30 minutes in the water). Kids get to hand feed baby stingrays, baby sharks and fish.  Cute little activity and my clients have loved it!  Sign up at Dolphin Cay.
  9. Free Movies: There is a full size MOVIE THEATER at the Atlantis with first run movies and concessions. Movies are free! Several of my clients had their tweens go to the theater while they had an adult night out and hit the casino!  Win for everyone!

Coral Towers

Newly Remodeled Coral Towers at The Atlantis Bahamas

NEWLY REMODELED CORAL TOWERS – aka “The Coral”:

In August 2016, the Atlantis resort announced a huge 30 million dollar renovation project and ever since then I have been anxiously awaiting the debut of the rebranded, remodeled CORAL TOWERS and “fully transformed” MARINA VILLAGE (cute restaurant and shopping area at the resort).   I have been receiving updates and pictures all year but was excited to check out the progress myself last week while visiting the resort.  Happy to say, everything is progressing as scheduled and looks fresh and amazing!  They are targeting a mid July opening for the new Coral rooms and a fall debut of the re-designed Marina Village.

The New Marina Village:

The new Marina Village will have a focus on authentic Bahamian experiences, featuring local artists and seasonal festivals with music from Bahamian musicians.  It will also debut an AUTHENTIC FISH FRY, along with conch salad and a beer tasting hall.  This is very exciting and is all part of the Atlantis’ “Come to Life” campaign looking to honor and highlight the unique Bahamian culture .  Great idea!   I loved that the Atlantis employees now have name tags stating their name and where they are from in the Bahamas.  It was fun to chat and learn about the different Islands of the Bahamas.

The Newly Remodeled Coral Towers at the Atlantis:

Coral TowersThe Coral Towers (newly branded as “The Coral”) will cater towards families and is an excellent location for the beach, pools, Marina Village, casino and the lazy river.  The Coral Tower was in need of a facelift and Atlantis is delivering!   The lobby will be completely redesigned with a family friendly soda fountain and Gelateria.  Guest rooms and suites have been gutted and completely updated.

The brand NEW POOL at “The Coral” is going to be an amazing  centerpiece!  Beautifully designed in white and blue, the pool will feature private cabanas and an elevated SWIM UP BAR to grab family friendly ice pops and signature drinks.  I can taste the Mango/Pineapple/Coconut ice pops right now – Yum!   I love that the Atlantis is always reinvesting and updating the resort and “The Coral” will not disappoint.

“The Coral” is about a 10 minute walk to Aquaventure Waterpark.  There is also a free shuttle that runs often between the towers. Coral Towers is steps from Atlantis Beach West (my favorite) and all of the rooms have a FULL BALCONY.  A lot of my clients with small children like to have a full balcony so they can put the kids to bed, shut the door and sit out on the balcony while watching the sunset and enjoying a cocktail.  Sounds like a perfect night to me!  Welcome “The Coral”!
