Atlantis Paradise Island Resort Rating: 4.0 Pearls
Brimming with activities for kids and teens, Atlantis is a veritable Caribbean Disneyland. In addition to all the basics -- babysitting, cribs, rollaway beds, kids' club -- the resort has 11 spectacular pools (including several kids' pools), a 141-acre water park, a speedway for racing remote control cars, and a marine habitat with sharks, stingrays, and dolphins to swim alongside -- and that's just a small sample of all the attractions. In addition, for teens, Atlantis has an elaborate shopping center, a rock-climbing wall, teen-focused spa treatments like "Acne-attack" facials, an under-18 nightclub, and, on occasion, a pop-star concert of the Jonas Brothers variety.
Grand Lucayan Rating: 4.0 Pearls
This enormous resort complex offers myriad activities, a convenient location, a great (and safe) beach, four pools, a supervised daily kids' camp, and extensive dining options both on-site and across the street at the Lucaya Marketplace, where you can find cheap, familiar eats like Quiznos and Domino's. Better, it all comes at a fair price.
