Overall, the vacation wasn't quite what I had hoped for in some respects and significantly better in others.
On the one hand, it was NOT a relaxing vacation. While Atlantis is technically a 'beach resort', it's wayyyyy more of a theme park atmosphere. There's a lot to do and see and the place is so BIG, it's a trek to get anywhere. And while it wasn't PACKED there were still people everywhere. There was some lines for things and TONS of kids. So it was definitely more like Disney than Sandals.
On the plus side, the food was great. The service was much better than I expected. And there was a lot for Jason and the baby to do.
The grounds are gorgeous. The marine habitats were amazing. Jason enjoyed the rock wall and the slides. I enjoyed the rapids river, the pools and the casino.
Before we left for Atlantis, Meli was diagnosed with Strep Throat. After 3 days of antiobiotic she was fine. Unfortunately, by the time Jason and I got to the Bahamas, we were both blessed with stuffy noses, sore throats and an awful cough. J seems to be better already, but my cough progressed into bronchitis. So I came home super tired, sick, dry and achy. Oh, and 5 pounds heavier to boot.
