There's almost no getting around it: Food is expensive practically everywhere in the Bahamas, but especially so at the resorts. Atlantis offers a two-tiered dining plan for $75 or $130 per day. Go to atlantis.com/dining/diningplan.aspx.
Van Breugel's Bistro, Charlotte Street South, 242-322-2484, vanbreugels.com. Jones often chooses to venture out for meals. In downtown Nassau, folks can dine al fresco and people-watch while chowing down on coconut curried conch chowder at this European-flavored eatery and pub. Entrees from $14.50.
Twin Brothers, Arawak Cay, 242-328-5033, twinbrothersbahamas.com. Authentic Bahamian fare featuring local fish served fried, grilled or steamed, and washed down with mango lemonade. Entrees from $19.
Although there is plenty to see and do around the island, most guests don't feel the need to seek activities outside the resort. And why would they? Atlantis has one of the world's largest outdoor marine habitats and aquariums, as well as waterparks, beaches and a variety of swimming pools — all free for resort guests. Guests can also book the onsite close-encounter adventures with sea lions, sharks, rays and dolphins, as well as scuba, snorkel, fish and enjoy traditional resort activities like golf and tennis. There are casinos in every lodging tower, and theaters and comedy shows. For details, go to atlantis.com/thingstodo.aspx
