Deal of the week

Posted by: Kerri Westenberg under Deals Updated: July 19, 2011 - 2:31 PM

My daughter and I recently returned from a trip to Atlantis, Paradise Island, that wonderland of a waterpark in the Bahamas, and my daughter declared it "awesome." There are several hotel options, including an upscale place with an adults-only pool called The Cove and the very family friendly Beach and Coral Towers. Beyond the pools and waterpark, there's a long stretch of beach, restaurants by celebrity chefs, a casino and a mind-boggling marine habitat that seems to wind throughout the property. Here's good news for people who want to go there: If you book by July 24, you get as much as 65 percent off, with room rates starting at $99 per night. The deal is good for travel August 21 to October 31. Book here or by calling 1-800-285-2684.
