I'm back from my vacation. It feels like I've been away forever, well ... maybe it feels like forever in blogger land. As a blogger I'm sure you know how important it is to keep updating your blog as well as keeping up with your fellow bloggers. I look forward to catching up with you all. So you want the scoop on my trip? It was ... AMAZING! I created a video (see below) to highlight some of the outfits, views, entertainment and food I enjoyed from my trip. Mom and I had a great time and we're looking forward to going there again! If you have questions feel free to comment below.

favcation (favorite vacation ever) summary video below ... check it out, enjoy!


Review Time:

Aquaventure - Atlantis' 141 acre waterscape with pools, thrilling waterslides (both body and tube) and white sandy beaches. There is a lazy river and a river rapid ride. I didn't try the waterslide (because i'm terrified of heights and a chicken) BUT I did try the river rapid ride lots of times. I love it. It was amazing! On this ride you'll find the old, and the young enjoying this ride and having a good time. I lost my mom a few times riding down the rapids but the life guards were helpful in letting me know that she was down the river and doing okay : ) I highly recommend enjoying these rides when you come to the resort. During your adventure down one of the slides, you'll ride through a tunnel and see sharks (yes, real sharks!). Pretty cool huh? check out these photos and look closely.




The Royal Towers - This is where we stayed. The room was beautiful. nice and big w/ a balcony that looked over Aquaventure and also had a beach view. The two king beds were comfy! Plenty of drawers and closet room to house all of my clothes ( because I over packed of course).




Dolphin Cay- As I mentioned before, the resort is offering a great deal right now. Free companion air, 4th night free, and over $650 worth of free activities. Dolphin interactions at Dolphin Cay is a MUST if you decide to go. We enjoyed this free activity. Mom and I took the free shuttle (which takes you all over the resort...it's way too large to walk around on your own) to Dolphin Cay. Not only do you receive a great educational lecture on Dolphins and also information on the trainers at Dolphin Cay, you get to experience them up close and personal. You touch, hug and even kiss the Dolphin! They also offer a sea lion interaction program as well.



The Dig- A maze of underground passageways and tunnels. Atlantis is home to the largest open marine habitat. We had lot of fun exploring and viewing the various sea creatures. Fish, sharks, starfish, jelly fish, turtles and more. We saw it all!




The Food - Can you say buffet? P90X what? My diet went out the window. I snacked on everything from nachos to cookies on my vacation. I enjoyed pizza at the marina, pasta at Carmine's, salmon from Seafire Steakhouse, and ice cream from Ben and Jerry's. My favorite was the breakfast! Made to order omelets and fluffy chocolate chip pancakes. Exhale! You won't go hungry at the resort that's for sure. They have everything from Chinese to Italian to American. I even enjoyed grabbing a milkshake and sandwich from Johnny Rockets. Everything you need is right at your footsteps. Sometimes when you go on vacation, you're wandering around the local area trying to find decent food, but at The Atlantis they provide you with so many options it's difficult to choose where you'll eat next. So many choices and so little time. They offer a meal plan as well for those who are interested in buying one.

The Pools and Beaches - I hate over crowded beaches and pools but at The Atlantis they have so many choices, sometimes you have an entire pool to yourself. Seriously! My mom and I would leave around 10AM and hang out in the pool for hours before other people started showing up. We attempted to try out every pool there but it's almost impossible, they have so many! I love the beach and the beautiful blue water as well. They have lots of beach and pool side places to purchase delicious drinks and yummy food like nachos, salads and sandwiches.










Other cool things to know - they have a straw market off island and for just $4 dollars you can get over there by boat or taxi and see local things. They have an area called the 'Fish Fry' where local restaurant vendors sell cheap local food. The resort has a free movie theater for guests, and while we were there they showed 'Avatar', 'It's Complicated', 'Leap Year' 'The Blind Side" and many more current movies.
