Paradise Island Info?

I have a few questions:

1. What is the dress code for the casinos?
2. If we are NOT staying at Atlantis, can we use any of the facilites (pool, beaches, resturants, casino)?
3. What day trips should I take? I like water realted trips! No, tours of buildings please.
4. What are some of the best places to eat?

Thanks for your help!

Casinos are casual.
Atlantis casino attempts to have a dress code at night but I seriously doubt they ever enforce it.
Best places to eat? Anyplace outside Atlantis.
Worst food for the dollar I've ever seen/eaten outside of China and London.

There are lots of good restaurants on Nassau, Sun and..., Greycliff's, Cafe Matisse, Compas Point, The Poop Deck, Johnny Canoe's (for good Bahamian food, at the Nassau Beach Hotel on Cable Beach).

There are several good trips, snorkle, dive, and the powerboat adventure.

Have a great time.

Unless you are staying at Atlantis, Ocean Club, Harbourside or Comfort Suites, you cannot use the Atlantis Pools or slides. YOU may use the casinos, shop in the common areas, and eat at most of the restaurants(those in the common areas). You can purchase a pass for $25 pp to enter the DIGS (the aquarium) but this still does NOT allow you to use the pools etc. The beach is public, but you must enter thru a path next to the Sheraton. Lounges and towel service are for hotel guests only.

As far as food, I'm not fond of Atlantis restaurants, there are so many others which are far better. Try Blue Lagoon at Club Land'dor, Sun and.. Buena Vista or Wedgewood. For more moderate prices, my favorite is Montegue Gardens, Cafe Matisse, Poop Deck and the Green Shutters Pub (British) For real bahamian food, visit the Fish Fry at Arawak Cay. You'll find about a dozen or so casual bahamian restaurants in this area. I recommend Deep Creek, Twin Brothers, Briland 10, or Goldies.

Tours depend on what you want. From swimming with the dolphins, to private island experiences. You can even crew an America's Cup racing boat.
If you need more detailed info.. email me.

It's been a couple of years, but try the Robinson Crusoe day tour, if you are into snorkelling. Don't snorkel on the other side of the island with everyone else, go out around the boat where there is an awsome reef! It was incredable (snorkel at your own risk, no one will be keeping an eye on you, but you!)
