by Bethany Braun-Silva
If you’ve been dreaming about bringing your family to the Bahamas, now is your chance! Atlantis is having their Summer Savings Event with rates as low as $199/night. It’s perfect for a last-minute spring break destination or for your family’s summer getaway, because the travel window for this deal is from April 24-September 3, 2019. Plus, included in the sale are Experiences Passes for kids and adults and up to $300 of resort credit (which varies by length of stay and hotel choice). As Atlantis is the ultimate multi-generational destination, the whole family can enjoy their stay at this Paradise Island resort. And the best thing about it: Kids ages 11 and under stay free at Atlantis!
Of course, any parent wonders just what do with their kids while on vacation. To say that Atlantis has got kids covered is an understatement, they truly cater to kids ages 3-12 with a variety of activities, clubs and attractions. From the water park to the famous kids’ club, your brood will have plenty of fun things to keep them busy. Younger kids can learn to swim in the Fishy Fun Swim School or create their very own stuffed animal from scratch, while older kids can check out the Atlantis Speedway, an indoor family friendly remote-controlled car facility, or swim with dolphins in the 14-acre marine habitat.
But you’ve only got until April 8 to make your plans, because that’s when the sale ends! Don’t waste another minute deciding. We know that you might be overwhelmed by all the different Atlantis resorts you can choose from, which is why we’ve broken down each resort and what they offer for families. From kids’ clubs to the different room types, here’s everything you need to know about the six Atlantis Resorts that are best for families.
The Royal Aquarium Atlantis Bahamas Resort
This is the resort that many people associate with Atlantis, because it’s reflective of the 11,000-year-old myth of the lost city of Atlantis. You’ll find the aquarium, the casino and the water park in close proximity to The Royal, so if convenience is important to your family, this would be the perfect place to stay. Plus, the Kids Club is conveniently located between this resort and The Cove. Atlantis Kids Adventures (AKA) is the resort’s 8,000 square-foot supervised kid’s club that unlocks imaginations for young travelers. Equipped with age-appropriate play and educational programs, AKA caters to resort guests ages 3-12. Parents can sign their kids up for sessions or the entire day. While the parents go catch some rays on the beach, kids take part in activities such as cooking, pirate parties, Candy Carnival and the Kidz Kasino.
The Beach Atlantis Bahamas Resort
If you just want a relaxing family vacation and to get your tan on, The Beach is where you need to stay. It’s located right on a 5-mile stretch of a beautiful, serene beach and is close to some family-friendly activities. Your family can float on the Lazy River Ride, visit exotic lagoons and meet some of the local wildlife in marine habitats. It’s further away from the splashier attractions Atlantis Resorts has to offer, so you have the option to stay on the beach and just have a more intimate family vacation with your kids.
Coral Hotel Room Aquarium Atlantis Resort
You’ll feel like you stepped into paradise at The Coral. The newly designed pool has private cabanas, family-friendly water activities and a swim-up bar. Parents can also explore Marina Village, which will provide plenty of dining options that even picky kids will like! Families will also love being steps away from Sun & Ice, an ice cream parlor and bakery, open throughout the day and evening that features a selection of Bahamian flavored gelato, ice cream and sorbet. Because is it really vacation without gelato? Also, if you’re travelling with older kids, this is where CRUSH, Atlantis’ cutting-edge nightclub for guests ages 13-17, is located. Teens can take part in the interactive internet lounge and game room featuring a floor-to-ceiling gaming tower with 24 gaming consoles. They can also snack at the CRUSH Concession Stand and sip on a drink from the Mocktail Bar for some nighttime fun.
The Cove Pool Atlantis Bahamas Resort
This is the most luxurious experience for families staying at Atlantis and features upscale 600 ft.-suites. It’s perfect for families who want to be pampered on vacation and feel like they are on their own private island. With beachfront and poolside cabanas and its very own celebrity-run restaurant, Sip Sip, families never have to leave this resort—unless they want to. Plus, guests at The Cove have access to the private Cascades Pool that is exclusively to guests of The Cove and The Reef.
Harborside Resort Atlantis Bahamas Resort
If your family enjoys a home-away-from-home feel while traveling, the villas at the Harborside Resort are ideal. Families can choose from one, two or three-bedroom villas and they’re perfect for larger families because Harborside can accommodate groups of up to nine people. They are also just a short walk from The Royal. This picturesque resort with its beautiful architecture and vibrant landscapes will sure make for some gorgeous backdrops for your vacation photos.
The Reef Atlantis Resort
With two-bedroom suites, The Reef is the epitome of luxury and has all the conveniences of residential apartments, so you feel comfy and settled during your stay. The kitchen comes fully loaded, so families can choose to stay in for a night and eat together in their room as a family. It’s great for parents of younger kids, who might get tired after having some awesome adventures at Atlantis.
