Looking a for a good place to stay in the Bahamas

My boyfriend and I, both in our late 20's, are looking for a fun, yet relaxing vacation in the Bahamas. We're looking for a good pool/beach area and fun nightlife.
We think we might go with the Atlantis or the Radisson?
Does anyone have any suggestions?

Go to the Atlantis. It is packed with action and nightlife. You couldn't find a better pool or beach area. There is a kid area with waterslides and an adult area, a lazy river , and a great beach. Jimmy Buffet was there when I went. Has that about nightlife!!! and there is a comedy club. The food is the only drawback because it is expensive and not good. We stayed in the Royal Towers and I highly reccomend that.

The Atlantis is a very good choice, however, can be expensive to stay there. I would also recommend the Comfort Suites which are directly across the street from the Atlantis, you have full use of the Atlantis and Comfort Suites with almost half the cost.
Have fun...Paula

Sue, the Atlantis is running a very good promotion right now for travel through mid December. The package has to be booked during the month of March, though. You could save up to 35% if you stay in the Coral Towers. Sometimes the Comfort Suites isn't really that much less expensive, depending upon the time of year and the special promotions that are being offered.

The Atlantis is a lot of fun for people of all ages -depending on what you are looking for. The hotel can be as relaxing or as busy as you would like it to be. The pools are wonderful and the beach and water are very nice. The nightlife consisits of several lounges, a small dance club, a casino, a comedy club, and sometimes other acts that visit from time to time.

Hope this helps. Have fun!

Thank you all for the information! I think we will go with the Atlantis, Coral towers, especially because the deals they are offering are too good to pass up. Does anyone know if you get your money's worth with either of the Atlanis' mean plans?

Sue,
I have stayed at the Atlantis with and without the meal plan. We didn't get the "regular"plan because it didn't offer as many restaurants (mostly buffets). We took the gourmet plan and really over ate to "get our money's worth". The next time we went, we didn't take the meal plan. We ate very well and spent quite a bit LESS money without the meal plan. Tips and tax are not included in the plan and are bases on what your meals would actually cost. It adds quite a bit to your bill.

Sue, the answer to whether the meal plans are worth the money depends on several factors. If you like to go off property to eat, than the meal plan would not be good for you. Keep in mind though, if you want to dine in Nassau, transportation back and forth to Paradise Island gets quite expensive.

If you want to stay on the resort, then the meal plan could be worth it. If you like to eat a solid breakfast and enjoy eating soup or salad, appetizer, entree, desert and coffee, then the meal plan would definitely be worth it. I took the meal plan and I enjoyed it because I didn't look at the menu prices at all since I knew it was already paid for. Also, My husband and I usually eat a mid-morning breakfast, skip lunch, and then eat a nice dinner. If you don't usually eat "full" breakfasts and dinners, the meal plan might not be a good value for you.

If you do go with the meal plan, I would definitely reccomment the gourmet plan. These are the more gourmet types of restaurants with ala carte menus rather than buffets.
