Stayed in Atlantis (The Reef) a year and a half ago (Britney stayed in the same building I was in...walked right past me and my girlfriend didn't even recognize her..not that it matters). I loved it!
-Great Beaches(fish swim right up to you and around you...can be unnerving to someone who did not grow up on the coast)
-Great Awesome pools, River Ride is exciting and relaxing at same time
-Plenty of Scuba,
-Good Dolphin interaction
-Food is some of the best ANYWHERE (Had a Jerk Chicken Pizza...we still talk about it over a year later, Excellent Italian, French, and Asian cuisine).
- I could go on and on
-Can be expensive (Get a package deal)
-Food can be expensive (once again get the meal plan: It gives you a selection of restaurants you can visit for Breakfast/Dinner from 2-star up to 5-star....you make your reservations and that is it...eat whatever you want from the menu...no matter the price...Drinks, however, are not included).
-Kids: This is difficult to really describe as it depends on where on Paradise Island you stay and what events/sights you are enjoying. If you stay at The REEF, The COVE, or Royal Towers then it is not really an issue...if you stay at Coral Towers or Beach Towers then children are more prevalent. They designed Paradise Island like that on purpose...family stuff on one side, and the more adult stuff on the other side.
I have been to many places (Spain 3x, Holland, Thailand, Mexico, Florida, Austria to name a few) but for me Paradise Island was the best 'couples' vacation I ever went on....
