Does anyone know if they will allow us to go to a grocery or liquor store in town and bring our own stuff in to the resort?

The pina colada sounds delish!
I think its possible we might work for the same company...

Our company trip this year is atlantis and last year was maui

3 years ago it was atlantis as well and I went that year, like everyone else has said, its SUPER expensive.

I know some people went out and bought alcohol and brought it back to there rooms, but I didn't go, so I'm not sure how far the stores were.

there are a bunch of restaurants outside in like a little shopping center that is sorta attached. we stayed next door but went to the atlantis to check things out. Johnny Rockets outside was not bad. Doesn't the atlantis do all-inclusive? Maybe your company will let you upgrade to that with you paying for that?

The place is HUGE!!! (When we looked at the resort map, we were thoroughly overwhelmed!) There are pools, beaches, waterslides, lazy rivers, etc. galore! Just pick a comfortable spot and chill real hard! (Have you visited the Atlantis website? Very cool.)

That is crazy! They did do the Atlantis before but I think it was a good 5 or 6 years ago. Two years ago was Cabo (that was when FI and I fell in love with the location), before that Puerto Rico, before that Cancun I think...I wasn't there then.

I know the owner of TI also owns some other companies maybe you work for one of them?

So anyway we'll be at the Atlantis in March, maybe I'll see ya there!

There are places to eat and drink outside the Atlantis within walking distance. That will definately save you money. All the places within the resort are expensive. Although the breakfast buffet was excellent. But I wouldn't do it every day.

 

I don't think you'll have a problem buying stuff and bringing it back to your room. Problem is the place is so big, it's not like you can run from the pool to your room for a refill.

 

Senor Frogs is right across the bay from Paradise Island. That's fun for lunch or dinner. Take the ferry over to the Cable Beach side and save some money on the taxis. It only runs during the day and costs a few dollars (which is fine because I woudln't recommend doing it at night anyway).

Atlantis is pretty cool, it is expensive. I would recommend taking a bag of snacks and drinks if you can. Its crazy expensive even in the small stores off the resort. I was there in April 2005. The new section was not built yet when i was there. The on site pools are nice, i didnt think the beach was that nice. We stayed at the pools. There are places to eat and shop within walking distance of the resort too. There might be an all inclusive deal there now, i am not sure..

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
