Thank you for posting this information. I appreciate knowing how to accomplish the task of taking a family there without spending several hundred dollars.

Hi there! Thanks so much for the great report! My family and I are doing Atlantis on our own for the Sept 1st cruise (w/ some other cruisers, I see!). We are staying at CS as well. I had one quick question- I saw on Atlantis website that it said that sandals, aquashoes, etc were a good idea for the day. My son is EXACTLY 48 inches w/o shoes and I don't want any kind of problem b/c I have heard they are strict. With aquashoes it puts him well over- it will alleviate any doubt. Can you wear aquashoes on the slide or do you need to remove them?

Thanks!
Lorraine

This information is GREAT!!

Do you have any pictures from your excersion to the Atlantis pools? I have heard that there is alot of walking and that the resort is big. It would be helpful to see some photos if anyone has any. We are thinking about getting a room at the CS for our cruise as my daughter will be 1 1/2 and having a room would be so helpful!
THANK YOU!!!!

Your 4 yr old can play in the water area, infinity pool and even a small kiddie slide into one of the pools. The lazy river is for everyone!! There are single and double tubes - both are fun on the river!

Thank you both for the info!

Thank you so much for the detailed report! I was just explaining the Comfort Suites option to DH today and he was all for it. When I went to the COmfort Suites website, I got a rate of $251 for my date (4/27/09), I even clicked any possible disounted options and it still displayed $251. How did you get that great rate, if you do not mind me asking?

Do the kids need a card to get an Atlantis wristband? We are a party of 4 adults and one 5 yr old., and have booked 2 rooms because of the 4 per room limit. But, if we check in/out at the same time - and our 5 yr old doesn't need a paid card to get a wristband, do you think we could get away with one room?

Thanks so much! We leave August 3!

I'm almost certain it's either 3 or 4 and under that doesn't require a wristband, hopefully someone else here can confirm the age limit.

Thanks for the post!

I found the rate for $135 online on the day we will be there. However, it says nothing about Atlantis being included. Is it always included?

Thank you for the awesome info!!

Just a few questions...

When you book your CS room and specify how many people will be in that room, is that what determines how many passes to Atlantis you will get when you check in/out?

Also, Im assuming you need to bring your own towel?

Would there be enough time to do Atlantis plus do some shopping like at the straw market and area and still have time to make it back to the ship without being rushed?

And lastly, aside from the water slide park, can you use the beaches and any other facility on site?

Thanks again for this awesome tip!

This is on the front page of their website, I also just answered one of my own questions...

From the CS website front page:

"Located adjacent to the Atlantis Paradise Island, guests of Comfort Suites Paradise Island can enjoy full use of all their facilities, including swimming pools, private beach, magnificent waterscapes, Lazy River Ride, water slides, health spa, tennis, and Kids Camp. Guests also have full signing privileges at Atlantis' restaurants and lounges."
