S: Nassau Bahamas January 12-15, 2012
FC: Nassau, Bahamas | January 12 - 15, 2012
2: We stayed at the Paradise Island Harbour Resort (used to be the Days Inn). It was only a 3 star all-inclusive hotel, As the tour boats called us, we stayed at the "dirt-cheap, cheap-ass hotel in the Bahamas." We still liked it. It was in a great location on Paradise Island. It was only a 10 min walk to Atlantis and 35 min walk to town. It was clean and the people were friendly. There was a buffet and a made-to-order restaurant. The man-made beach in the Nassau Harbour is a private beach. There will be no venders trying to sell you anything. It would recommend this hotel for those who don't care for luxury and just want to sit on the beach or go to Altantis.
12: Bay Street is the main drag in the town. The cruise ships are docked just behind the street. Expect to see big named shops such as Cartier, Gucci, Tag and Coach. High-end discount makeup discount stores and diamond jewelers are found in between. The Straw Market is located at the west end if you are looking for handmade bags or hats made from straw, wooden art or seashell jewelery. Watch out for tag of "Made in Taiwan" though
17: Atlantis is the big hotel on the Paradise Island. THis is where the stars stay in the Bahamas (if they don't have their own place). There is a water park, dolphin swims, pet the stingrays plus much more extravagant activities. One has to go to the Casino at night but the club was $50 for girls and $100 for boys to get in.
