Great weekend getaway to celebrate my birthday. Pools and beach were relaxing and beautiful. Wine lists could use more variety and better producers (mostly large production commercial brands). Stayed in an Ocean Suite Room and the room looked exactly like the online photos.
A very good experience overall.
Water slides - there are like 6 real ones.
Leap of Faith - big shoot - signature slide at Atlantis - sometimes a line, but a GREAT slide
Challenger - decent slide in the Mayan Temple, all good, nothing special though
Abyss - good slide, in the dark so the drop FEELS like more - decent slide
River Rapids - good fun, we did that a bunch, nothing crazy, but long and relaxing with some fun
2 Power Tower slides - good slides, kind of part of the River Rapids - convenient, up a magic carpet, all good big fan
Food during the day around the pools/beach/slides = eh, not so great. I don't really care about the cost, it was about quality for me and the lunch food was very average. I would eat a hot dog and be done with the lunch experience as quickly as you can. Dinners are GREAT.... good choices both on property and off.
Coral Beach = best beach - less noisy than the other beach.... but if you want to jet ski you need to go to the other beach. We did that one day, and we did the Coral Beach other days.
Mayan pool - 8/10
Baths pool - 9/10
Cabanas - expensive, nice, worth it if you get in on the first day after 10 am, otherwise I would just camp out at some chairs.... but the cabana experience one day was good. We did it at the Mayan Temple, if I did it over again I would do it at the Baths Pool - which is super close to the Coral Beach. Mayan temple is FAR from a beach.

Beautiful hotel. Stayed in an ocean view king sized bedroom. Gorgeous room and bathroom. Amazing shower!!! The facility is phenomenal and remote from the busy touristy Atlantis. Free shuttles to and from Atlantis are available however. The only con is that food/drinks are excessively overpriced, but talking to other visitors, that doesn't seem to be different at other resorts on Paradise Island. The staff was very friendly and accomodating.

Paradise Island resembles Las Vegas-upon-the-Caribbean with its fanciful resorts and white sands. Tourists often head to the island’s casinos, five-star restaurants, and shopping gallerias; its beaches, water parks, and nightclubs, however, are geared primarily for resort guests. The Potter’s Cay fish market is an easy detour from Paradise Island. Grouper and conch are typical catches of the day.
