The Luxury: Vacationers in search of decadence rather than debauchery should consider bedding down at the Cove Atlantis, the newest hotel within the sizeable Atlantis Paradise Island resort complex. The hotels 600 sleekly designed guest rooms come with ocean views, and the resort grounds have pools, lavish cabanas, gaming pavilions, and a swanky lounge where DJs play tunes nightly. Cabana butlers cater to guests every whim and desire.
The Value: For the best rates of the spring season (we found rooms from $273/night), book a reservation as soon as possible.
The Catch: This bustling Bahamas mega-resort is a flashy, Vegas-style hot spot. Dont go expecting to find a quiet retreat.
