Hi Heather!

 

I actually went to Atlantis about 7 years ago with my parents and my brother and it was BEAUTIFUL! Granted it was a family trip so it was a different environment than what you're going for, but I could definitely see it as a romantic place!

 

I remember the ocean being pretty cold when we went in early March, but they have so many pools around the resort that you really don't have a problem with lack of water to relax in! The waterslide through the shark tank is awesome and you should definitely try it out!

 

There are just so many neat things about this resort that even after 7 years I still remember very clearly - like the casino and the food! I do remember the service wasn't always with a smile, but I'm sure that has changed!

 

One thing I like to do when researching a hotel in addition to BDW (cuz it's the best!) I usually just check out the hotel on youtube.com. A lot of times you can get guest videos which give you an unbiased look at the rooms, the pools, the beach, etc. Just a thought!

 

Good luck in your planning! :)

My cousing just went there for a mini honeymoon in August. They said it was beautiful but be prepared to pay for EVERYTHING. I mean $5 for a bottle of water, etc., etc. For me that was kind'a shocking since when I go to beach vacations, we do all inclusive. And another thing is that outside the resort, there is nothing to do. I mean no excursions, nothing at all. You're stuck in there :)

As a fellow Canadian, I would say your money is better spent at one of the many all-inclusives. Especially with our dollar going down. I second what Bisha said about paying for everything (and it is all expensive - imagine if the only places you could eat in Edmonton for an entire week were the Fairmont and Hilton hotel restaurants) and aside from snorkeling (which again is expensive because you can't do it from shore) there really aren't any excursions. I was there for a week and although we generally aren't partiers we were bored. The only nightlife was gambling at the casino. There really isn't anything to do but lay on the beach or around the pool.

 

I don't mean to slam the Bahamas, it is still a pretty island with warm weather (no snow!), but if it wasn't for having to accommodate family from all over Canada and the US I would have had my wedding in Mexico or DR.

    • My wedding date is set for the next month but not found any wedding planner finally got one wedding planner. its very very help for my wedding arrangement thank you indian wedding company
    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
