Many families dream of going to Atlantis for the ultimate family getaway, but wind up putting it on the back burner after hearing about hotel rates and the cost of food in the Bahamas. Whilst there’s no getting away from the fact that Atlantis is expensive, planning your vacation well ahead of time and booking a condo at the Harborside Resort at Atlantis can significantly help your vacation budget.
More and more families are discovering that vacation rentals can be more comfortable and less expensive than traditional hotel rooms. At Atlantis Bahamas, the budget friendly option is the Harborside Resort at Atlantis. These condos are right on the resort with full, free Atlantis privileges to everything the resort has to offer. The condos also have kitchens, which help families offset the high price of meals on the resort. Many families bring breakfast supplies and snacks with them from home. Over the week, the savings you’ll realize by having your own breakfast food, snacks, and beverages in your condo will run into several hundred dollars.
The condos tend to have limited availability, and may not always show up on the Atlantis site. However, here at Atlantis Family Fun we have an extensive inventory, with various different types of condo available throughout the year. Our one restriction is that our condos at the Harborside Resort are only available as weekly bookings with weekend to weekend dates. Guests are welcome to use as many nights as they need. Even if guests don’t stay all seven nights, it is often still cheaper to stay at Harborside than five nights in a tiny Atlantis hotel room with no amenities. Anyone who has been to Atlantis will tell you that you need at least seven days to fully experience everything the sprawling Atlantis Resort has to offer.
There is limited availability for these condos as they are in high demand, but your family can still save by planning well ahead and booking flights early to avoid high airfare. Start looking for an airfare today, and then check availability for your dates on our site.
