Atlantis, Paradise Island

So you've seen the damage that Hurricane Sandy did to our villa in the Bahamas. It's mainly superficial damage to the outside area. However, the pool is out of action and is currently undergoing major repairs and the owner of the villa has returned to the island to oversee the work. In order to make up for the lack of amenities, he arranged for Sam and I to spend a night at the Atlantis resort on Paradise Island. The hotel itself reminded us of Vegas, but some of the facilities really blew me away.

We had a junior suite on the top floor and this was our view:

The grounds were really well landscaped:

And there were lots of lovely aquariums. I do love a good aquarium!

The shops around the marina reminded me of Downtown Disney in DisneyWorld and there were some really stunning yachts moored there.

We spent the day enjoying aquaventure, the water park, and had an amazing time. The lazy river is definitely the best I've ever experienced, with rapids, a wave machine and some excellent slides.

There was even a slide that went through a shark tank!
