Atlantis Hotel is huge, beautiful, very green. Aquapark has a shape of a Maya pyramid. There are swimming pools, waterfalls, tremendous aquariums with lots of exotic and dangerous fish, water activities at sea and in the sea lagoon. There is a closed lagoon with sea water and sandy bottom without fish for children, the one with fish is for snorkeling.

We walked along the main Bay Street with a lot of shops. The street is narrow, not long, the buildings are low, painted in bright colors. There are a lot of jewelry stores! Prices are really cheap.
We visited the market where you can buy counterfeits of famous brands, mainly handbags, and watches. The market is located near the port where huge cruise ships come, and it is aimed strictly at the passengers of these ships.

The weather was perfect all the time! The water temperature was 74-78 degrees Fahrenheit (26-29 degrees Celsius)! We measured it ourselves!
The Atlantic Ocean is very beautiful! The water is clear, emerald green from a distance, the sand is white, coral, coarse. The waves were small, only once, and all the other time, the water was calm.
There are a lot of sun beds everywhere, and they are always vacant, and there's a lot of them.
And now, let's talk about Atlantis Hotel, beach, ocean, birds, flowers, etc.
