This summer you can score great deals on one bedroom villas at Harborside at Atlantis on Redweek.com from $139 a night (including taxes and fees) when you stay for a week. You can find similar deals on Ebay.com. You will not find a lower price for this fantastic resort.
The Atlantis is Spectacular!!!
The Atlantis on Paradise Island in the Bahamas is enormous, impressive and fun! You think the kids would love a water slide that takes them through a pool of sharks? Forget the kids—it’s awesome. They have an a fabulous lazy river (actually, one good one and one great one). There is a snorkeling lagoon, a shark adventure (you get to walk through a pool on sharks), Scuba and Snuba. You can also snorkel through The Ruins of Atlantis, enjoy The Stingray Experience or just sit on the beach.
My kids love this place! Their favorite is the incredible Ultimate Trainer for a Day program at Dolphin Cay. This program will set you back a few bucks but your kids will remember it for the rest of their lives. They will do the normal “swim with the dolphins” program but they also get to go behind the scenes and really learn about the dolphins. They participate in the nurse shark feeding, handle the cownose stingrays and snorkel with the stingrays (and hundreds of other fish) in the Seagrapes lagoon—a fantastic day!y!!!
One bedroom villas at Harborside at Atlantis–A Real Steal!!
The list of activities at Atlantis is endless. The problem is that all of these things come at a steep cost. Even when Atlantis runs a sale—the taxes and fees they charge are so high that any bargain aspect goes out the window. So to get a great deal at the Atlantis you have to stay away from the mainstream. The single best deal is Harborside at Atlantis. Harborside at Atlantis is located across the Atlantis Marina from the main hotel complex–a short walk through the Marina shops to the main hotel (or you can take a shuttle bus). The one bedroom villas each have 558 sq. feet of living space, a French balcony, room for 4 guests and a full size sleeper sofa in the living room. The one bedroom premium villas are 862 sq. feet, sleep 5, have a private patio and a queen size sleep sofa in the living room. Considering that most of the rooms in Beach Tower and the Coral Towers (the two lowest priced room tiers) are very small (under 300 sq. ft and under), the Harborside at Atlantis is an absolute steal when booked on Ebay or Redweek. When booked on the Atlantis website the one bedroom villa is $540 a night (including all taxes and fees) and the one bedroom premium villa is $682 a night (all in)–so the timeshare rental option saves you up to 75% off the retail price. That’s the Traveldealalert.com way baby!!!
To score these great deals check out Redweek.com and Ebay.com. You will be renting a timeshare from a timeshare owner who cannot use his or her week. Pricing on Redweek.com tends to be a bit all over the place. A few of the ads just list silly price, but you should be able to score your week for no more than $170 to $180 a night for a one bedroom villa.
