Eta: not sure if you even went yet. If not maybe you all know some of these answers. I will also do some research.

That you for posting this. I may seriously look into it. I have some follow up questions if you don't mind answering.

1. Was there an extra charge for a 2nd person or even bringing kids?

2. How much were any extra nights if you did any?

3. Any other fees and how much, like how cruise ships give a free cruise but there is a fee?

4. Is there a way to get cheap flights there? Not sure if any discount carriers fly to thst area. On that note, is a passport required?

AXEL, I may need to add this to my trips this year. How else am I going to stay poor.

I just did a mock booking on their site and 4 nights is $1049 and resort fees and room taxes are $449. I am curious what the actual out of pocket ends up being for diamonda 4 nights.

Do weekends vs weekdays make a difference? I saw something in the fine print about 'extra guests'. I think my kids might be 'extra guests' unless you were in a suite or something, or rented another room.

My mock booking was monday thru thursday. I just assumed the weekends would be more.

18.25% taxes and $54 per night resort fees are killer. For something that prices out at $950 or so to balloon up almost 50% is insane. Take note with the resort fee... you've got to pay a fee (VAT) to pay a fee.

So it looks like you will be paying $400 minimum in taxes and fees with this deal unless otherwise noted (some packages void the resort fee). I would presume you get taxed on the comped room, but I have no reason to believe that other than my own skepticism.

Edited out something about 12 being the "adult" age. Main website has (18+) next to "Adult".

I figured. It is still a great deal but certainly not free. I was thinking about booking 2 nights with my wife's platinum that we got because of the credit card. Then buy the founders and book the other 4 nights with diamond.

The platinum nights would be about $80 a night with taxes and resort fees. The diamond nights would be run about $120 for the 4 nights because resort fees are waived. That is assuming there is no additional charge for our then 3 and 5 year old. I think $300 for 6 nights would be a pretty good deal. However I haven't looked into the other costs such as food. I bet the nail you on those since it's not like you can just drive down the road to mcdonalds

I guess I will keep posting on here about atlantis in case anyone cares about my research. I like to do vacations on a strict and tight budget. It is really the only way we can afford to do so much.

Food is super super expensive from what I read.

Once you fly in you have to take a taxi to the resort. Taxis are $33. From what I read you can pay the driver an extra $15 to drive to town to the grocery store. They will wait for you to shop and take you to the resort. Great way to save some money for bottle water, snacks, and small meals.

Right now atlantis has a dining deal on sale. I am guessing these are on sale quite often . It is $48 per person per day including tax and tip. This includes your breakfast and dinner. Lunch is not included. Kids under 6 eat free with a paid adult.
