    Blot on the landscape - Paradise Island

    by leffe3 Written Dec 29, 2002

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It may be a fantastic location, and if you are into all inclusive holidays with laid-on entertainment from morning to night (from water sports through to cabarets and casinos), Paradise Island is the place. But 1000 roomed hotels are, as far as I am concerned, a blot on the landscape - and Atlantis Resort is just that - rampant commercialism gone awry.

    well, that straw market at downtown Nassau, just beware when you buy items (in case you are looking for legit Bahamian items), i saw a lot of stuff with stickers that said 'made in china' (eheheheh, i thought that was pretty funny).

    There is a guy on the far end left side, carving wood -- yeah, his stuff is handmade. Here is a picture of a lady selling these really cool straw rugs, she was a tough cookie, but nice nonetheless. I forgot her name, but she is located at either the two last rows to the right side, as you walk in.

    I don’t like resorts, casinos or cruiseships. I stayed at Paradise Island, and except for the huge fish tank, I was not impressed. It’s like Las Vegas in the Caribbean, sorry not my thing

    The horse drawn carriage to take you through Nassau is not necessary. Just walk and avoid this trap.
