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?
      My favorite type of vacation, a relaxing one!

        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..
