Want a taste of Paradise? Then come with us to Paradise Island in the Bahamas!
Last winter, I made the mistake (or not!) to show my son a commercial video for the Atlantis Resort in Paradise Island. It shows blue sky, clear water, exciting water slides, dolphins, sharks, pools… and he was sold! He just loved it so much that it was all he could talk about so I started looking into it for a summer vacation.
When we first arrived, we felt like we were never going to find our way around but no matter what wrong way we took we were sure to find some great aquariums or pools! Aquaventure is their water park that is open from 10am until 7pm and it has 8 water slides, a lazy river and a rapids river. The Leap of Faith slide is the craziest of all and we enjoyed watching people screaming and proud to have done it! My husband did it twice and I knew that there was no way I would slide almost vertically into a tunnel in a shark aquarium!
And if that is still not enough, every day they have a little gazette with many pool side activities with Bingo, basketball hoops, feeding, games… Every day, their movie theater shows a kid-friendly movie that is included with the resort activities. There is a casino for the parents, lots of good shopping and plenty of restaurants of course! There is a fitness center and a spa and if you want to enjoy these without your children they have Kidventure, where kids will be taken care of for the morning or the afternoon or even for the full day. And if you have tweens or teens, they have their own club that looks like a lot of fun!
I could go on and on with everything to see and do. I hope we make you want to go!
In the meantime, check out their website... but if your children see it, it will be hard to make them forget what they have seen!
