The Royal Towers. When we can, we stay on the left tower in this picture. It is best suited for the spots we need to hit with our son, and my brother also gets his rooms there, it’s best when the family stays together.
There are water slides for ages 2-99. Actually is you are 99, you are best on the 2 year old slide, come to think of it. My son at 6 1/2 last year started going on slides his scaredy cat dad (me) won’t go on. I did get talked into one, it was so fast I almost threw up at the bottom. What a big baby! And there are 2 lazy rivers. 2! One has a tsunami and rapids: we all take turns getting capsized, not on purpose, suffice it to say my mom will not share a water tube with me again!
One year, this was our view. We could see manta rays from our bed. It was totally awesome. We have also been to several feedings, sharks, turtles, etc. This hotel is also an aquarium. And an amazing one at that, one of the largest in the world!
Awesome trails at this resort. We walk to the different feedings and the various smaller aquariums set up all over the place. And again, the many, many pools. Oh yeah, and a beach, my son goes there to try to catch aquatic creatures and entertains himself for hours!
The famous “Dig” at the Atlantis. The Dig is a series of aquariums located beneath the lobby of the Royal Towers and is the world’s largest open air marine habitat. Hundreds of different aquatic species can be spotted in the Dig’s various tanks such as angelfish, sharks, manta rays, one of which being larger than ten feet, and various types of jellyfish. The goal of The Dig is to provide guests with a taste of life in the legendary destroyed city of Atlantis. If one observes the bottom of the floors in the different aquariums, wreckage and debris will be scattered about representing the “Lost City of Atlantis.”. (Thanks Wikipedia!)
