    We were headed towards the Lagoon Bar & Grill and wound up at the Predator Lagoon. There are some beautiful reef fish, sharks, barracudas, rays, sawfish and huge grouper.The coral in the tanks is spectacular and the colors are surreal. We walked through the submerged tunnels and it was incredible to watch the fish and sharks swim abouve and around us in the tunels.

    For many years I had wanted to visit Atlantis. I hear of how beautiful the resort was and that there was so much to see. Yes, Atlantis is beautiful with wonderful marine atractions, shopping, restarants and casinos but some of the staff are just rude. We did find two people who were nice but the rest of the staff we encountered were a nightmare. It was nice to finally get to see Atlantis and we enjoyed the exhibits and shopping....but I don't think I would ever stay here.

    Mayan Temple Lagoon

    by cjg1 Updated Dec 10, 2008

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Right outside the Royal Towers in the Mayan Temple. There are some interesting sharks here: Caribbean reef sharks, silky sharks and nurse sharks. There is a water slide that takes you into a clear tunnel through the shark tank. It's a quick ride but very interesting.

    The Atlantis Marina has some impressive yachts. We walked by the Marina on the way out of the Shopping village and were surprised at the number of yachts and their grandeur. It must be nice to travel the world by yacht stopping into great ports and seeing the sights.

    Marina Village Entrance

    The Marina Village has a bunch of shops as well as restaurants. The restaurants are: Carmine's, Cafe Martinique, Bimini Road, Johnny Rockets, Seafire Steakhouse, Marina Pizzeria and Jamba Juice. The shops include: Dooney & Bourke, Versace, Various jewelry stores, La Perfumerie and a variety of souvenier and clothing shops.

    Liz and I wandered through the Marina Village on our way to the casino. Liz bought some perfume for her Mom at La Perfumerie; which was a very good price compared to home. Liz couldn't resist a Jamba Juice and stopped for a Strawberry Surf Rider which I happily shared with her.

    Seagrapes Lagoon

    Right by the Beach Tower is the Seagrapes Lagoon. There are some really colorful reef fish andrays swimming around in a cave. The lagoon is huge we spent some serious tie looking at all the fish and coral. They even have staff feeding the rays which is fun to watch.

    Jet-Skis in Paradise

    This is an event that you can do with one or two people, depending on the size of the jet-ski. You can also use your voucher from the Royal Hotels for a free Jet-ski rental with the purchase of one. For a half hour it's about $20, so you can get in an hour with a voucher. Children under 18 must be accompanied by an adult unless given direct parental consent.

    The Lazy River

    The Lazy River

    Just as a rule of thumb, if you intend to stay on the lazy river, keep right. There are little exits out to a pool and other places along the way, so just keep right. There are also whirlpool zones where if you get caught in them, you'll wind up staying there until you figure out how to maneuver yourself out of the way. There's also a section that if you're on the wrong side of the bank, it'll drag you backwards, so learn these areas and you should be fine. It's a great little thing to just sit back and relax while being cooled by the water.

    Go tubing inside a shark tank!

    Tube amongst the sharks

    This is a must-do to anyone going to the Atlantis Resort, because it's very neat to know that you're in an intertube underwater with sharks swimming above, below and beside you. Certainly worth the wait in line for the little wrist band thing.

    Need a Wristband to go on Water Rides

    by XanderDone Written Jun 24, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Wristband for Water Rides

    Get a wristband at any of the towel stations in the pavillion. All you have to do is show your room key and it's yours, "free" of charge. The colors change every day, so you're going to have to get one every day you're there. Children like to collect these wristbands and tend to keep the old ones on while aquiring new colors

    Predators Tunnel

    Predators Tunnel

    This is a walk in a glass tunnel underwater through a tank of "predators." Some of the fish in the tank really are predators, but a lot of them don't really pose much of a threat to you if you fall in the water for some reason. The only thing in here I can imagine that MAY attack you are the barracuda and the sharks. It's home to giant Australian grouper, sawfish, tuna, and more. Certainly something to see.

    Needlefish and Starfish - surface tanks

    The Atlantis hotel has a fantastic aquarium. In addition to the main tanks and shark tank there is also the largest open air aquarium in the world and certainly the largest aquarium of any kind in the Caribbean. The aquarium specializes in native tropical species. The picture is of one of the 11 surface tanks which wind around in the 34 acre area.

    Price is $25 each (NOT cheap). Of course it is free if you are a guest at the hotel. There are $5 off coupons on all the tourist maps.

    A Storm at Paradise Beach

    Try not to go at the same time that we went.. there was a storm that formed just overhead a mile away with lightning and everything. It is a very beautiful beach with crystal clear waters, so you should be able to see anything if it approaches you in the water. You can also do many of the different water activities available at the beach, which are under my other tips.

    Parasailing

    Parasailing

    You can go parasailing here with two people per boat or just solo for those brave ones out there. I believe the price was around $20 per person for a half hour. Children under the age of 18 cannot go alone unless the guy is given direct parental consent to do so.

    Not Junkanoo, but Bahamian Nevertheless

    by XanderDone Written Jun 24, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Bahamian Band

    Here, you can listen to a live band sing songs that range from Bob Marley's entire Legends album to Van Morrison. Only the greatest hits of the classic American genre is available from these people, but you know, you can't just make a Bahamian beat to every single song and have them memorized for an on-demand performance. It's interesting hearing some hit songs with a Bahamian flavor. Even Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville sounded quite different, but it was very well done. They're great entertainment, and they're amplified throughout the entire outside pavillion by little speakers in the foliage, so it makes a nice poolside lounge background.
