The One&Only Ocean Club

When you visit a resort where, at any given point, 60% of the guests are returning guests, you know that you’ve come across something special.

The One&Only Ocean Club is home to celebrities, royalty, and your everyday traveler who appreciates the much finer things in life.

The One&Only Ocean Club is part of Atlantis, so you can partake in all that Atlantis has to offer – but as a guest of OOOC, you get to partake in things that no one else, anywhere else, does.

The beautiful courtyard as you pass through the lobby.  One side boasts beautiful garden views, another side features gorgeous Caribbean ocean views.

Their spa is something that is in a category all itself.  There is an on-site salon for manicures/pedicures, but if you want a massage or other spa treatment, you visit one of the private villas.  What's that?  You'd rather have the spa come to you in your room?  That can be arranged, too.

The Cove & The Reef (Atlantis)

While visiting the Bahamas, I stopped by two great properties at Atlantis – The Reef and The Cove.

Atlantis is a popular family destination in the Bahamas, complete with Dolphin Cay, a casino, shops, and more pools and waterpark activities than you can cram into one family vacation.

But The Reef and The Cove are a special part of Atlantis.  Guests can partake in everything Atlantis has to offer – with some special additions offered specifically to the resorts.

Honeymooners, families, couples, friends, bachelor/bachelorette parties… the possibilities are endless.

Let’s start with The Reef…

The lobby at The Reef.

There are studio rooms at The Reef, so they have kitchenettes.  Downstairs at The Reef, they have a sundries store for everything from snacks to milk and cheese.  They also have a laundromat on the 2nd floor (and a Starbucks on the 1st!).

Pretty awesome kitchenette, huh?

Sandals Royal Bahamian: January 2014

I was extremely fortunate to stay at Sandals Royal Bahamian in the Bahamas this past weekend.

I would tell you all about it in words, but the stay is much better described in photos.

Our room was awesome - it overlooked the main area of the resort, and the beach.  We had the sliding door open to our balcony each night to fall asleep to the waves.

When we first arrived late Friday afternoon, it was in the low 60s, so people had cleared out of the chilly pool (hey, it *is* January, after all!).  The place was hoppin' the next day!  Something that I noticed everywhere - ample seating!  Never before had I see so many lounge chairs.  You don't have to feel like you are cramped next to others, and there is always a "good chair" somewhere.

That Friday in January, as it hit about 62, the fire pits came in handy.  There aren't many things as relaxing as sitting around a fire pit, with a beverage, listening to the ocean waves wash up to the shore.

Throughout the week, Sandals has beach parties, live music, late night chocolate buffets... you name it!  Here, they had a Junkaroo Party - complete with dancing, a DJ, and more.  Lots of fun to attend - whether or not you participate!
