Looking for family vacation this coming July. Family of 5 (including 3 teens). While we would love to stay at Atlantis, the cost is prohibitive for our size (other than the Harborside units which seem to get pretty uneven ratings). Budget probably $500 per night.
Question: would you recommend staying in and around Paradise Island or looking to one of the outer islands? Looking first and foremost for beach/ocean views .... swimming, snorkeling, etc. Is safety a consideration if not staying at one of the mega resorts?
