You know the Bahamas is the Atlantis beach really that nice and is it worth the morning. Is everything in the hotel costs more money. I got a good deal on airfare, but I dont want to go to a nice hotel and then be charged for everything there do you know what I mean?

Atlantis beach is terrific, but it's a public beach, so you really don't have to stay at atlantis to enjoy Cabbage Beach. There's a public walkway next to the RIU hotel that gives you access to the beach.. you can rent a chaise for about $10 or so.. or just use a towel.

EVERYTHING at the hotel is expensive, and there if very little that comes with the price of the room with the exception of the decor, lagoons and pools. NOT EVEN FREE COFFEE.

If you go to Atlantis you must have an open wallet. No way around it.

You can stay at the Comfort Suites and have access to all the facilities at Atlantis with breakfast included. Or stay at less expensive properties and enjoy several areas in nassau by jitney or walking.

There are inexpensive and much more ordinary places to stay on the beach (cable beach) like Nassau Beach Hotel or Wyndham, or more cozy accomodations like Orange Hill, which is a not in the touristy area, but across the street from a terrific beach. Tons of options. with the airfare as low as it is today.. you HAVE to take advantage.

Unless you have kids over 48 inches tall, and love the loud, obnoxious whines of out of control kids.. then I suggest you stay elsewhere and enjoy the casino, lobbies and maybe take the $29 aquarium tour,.

We loved staying at Harborside (Atlantis) great spacious rooms and a large pool just for those at Harborside.
