Atlantis Resort Review

About a month ago we returned from our trip to the Atlantis Resort and I'm still in awe at the amazing trip we experienced. Our trip was unique in the fact that it was a corporate reward trip we earned through Napa Auto Parts. There was a group of almost 1100 people from all over the country. All expenses were paid  except for the optional excursions.  Mr. Tall & I have never had an all expenses paid trip and we can definitely get used to it. But, let's get on to the trip details.

Sunday we arrived at the Nassau airport and upon retreiving our bags, we were off to Atlantis. We arrived in the afternoon and spend the day checking out the resort grounds followed by a beautiful buffet dinner at the pool.

Monday morning we went on a bus city tour of Nassau. Followed by the afternoon at the Atlantis Resort waterpark. Yes we even went down the crazy steep waterslide shown on "The Amazing Race."  Here are some sites around Nassau.

Monday afternoon was spent relaxing in the amazing water park at the resort. The not so lazy river was our favorite. We also braved it and went down the super steep waterslide shown on "The Amazing Race".

Tuesday morning we went on a semi-submarine ride. Was a cool experience but of course I couldn't figure out the correct way to turn my vehicle and got separated from the group. Doih! So, I ended up with a private scuba diver tour! :)
