    I don't frequent the Harrah's properties so Platinum really hasn't benefited me in the past. Last year a few extra trips to Horseshoe Indiana put me at Platinum and I read that earns two free nights at Atlantis in the Bahamas. Has anyone used this perk? Did the free nights really add any value to your trip? Also curious about the quality of games offered and table limits.

    There have been some reports posted here about visiting Atlantis. We were offered multiple nights (high Diamond) and had cheap airfare. Based on reviews of everything being high cost, we opted not to go.

    We actually just got back. I am a diamond member, and got 4 nights free (we only stayed 3). You can get the beach tower (cheapest room), and they'll cover resort fees, or you can do the coral tower (next tower up) and get $100 in free slot play. We opted for the beach tower, but damn it's a haul to everything you want to go to. It is quite expensive for things. On top of the resort pricing, gratuity is added to everything, as well as a 7.5% VAT, so you take the already high resort prices and tack 22.5% on top of that. My wife and I were pretty frugal, and ended up with a bill of about $700...fortunately, we had a decent run at the craps table our last night and essentially broke even there (notwithstanding the flight costs). I don't know they are renewing the partnership, and think right now to utilize that offer, you have to book by tomorrow and travel by 2/28 if I remember correctly. Cab trips into Nassau aren't too bad, and there are a lot of dining options there that, while not cheap, aren't anywhere near resort prices.

    Atlantis has been updated on the new 2017 7* e-brochure so I think that it might be renewed (not 100% though0 for this year......Rick

    We were there a few weeks ago, I am a diamond and took 4 comp nights at the Beach tower (the cheapest rooms), which gave us no resort fees, but you must pay the room taxes and a $15/day gratuity for the maids.....Atlantis was on my lady's bucket list, so we went for it. Flying from Vancouver Island meant a night stopover both ways in Calgary, so we decided to do the 4 nights in Atlantis and added on a 3 night stay at the Sandals resort on Nassau (Royal Bahamanian), didn't make much sense for us to spent 2 full days traveling and only be there for 4 nights.
    Status with TR (diamond, anyway) gets you no more perks with the resort, other than what is in your offer. Spent some time in the casino, only on slots and VP, no idea about the table games, sorry............Played for a fair amount of time on my bankroll on slots, but it was not a big bankroll so it was not a good test. VP options were not that great,best I saw was 9/5 JOB or 7/5 bonus at $1, not much selection of muti-line or ult x, and those pay tables were not very good.
    Food and drink are very expensive, and there always VAT tax and mandatory 15% gratuity on ALL transactions. Water costs as much as a beer, for example....the water bottle in your room is $7 plus 7% VAT plus 15% tip, ouch! Most cocktails anywhere on the resort set you back around $15 (plus gratuity and VAT)
    There is a huge waterpark, with lots of pools and slides and rides, so kids would have no problems being amused....the aquaventure passes were part of the room deal. There are all sorts of huge aquarium tanks with all sorts of fish and marine animals, many of these tanks are 5-10 foot + deep and you view the critters from beside them, as well as from above them. Outside of the Coral tower is a walkway past the marina, with many shops and dining places. Some of those yachts are amazing! I looked up a couple of the names, one cost $100 million to buy and the other was a rental, for a cool $230,000 (plus expenses of course) you could use it for a whole week! There is a burger place at the end of the marina walkway that was our fave, it looks like a 50's diner, had good food at a reasonable price, and we had great service there! There is also direct access to the beaches, gorgeous sand for sure!
    There is a Casino Experience Pass which we got as well, it includes 1 shallow water dolphin interaction, 1 round of golf( never used), 1 sushi and sake sampler at Nobu restaurant, and 2 free cocktails at 2 different bars....you must go to the casino to pick up the pass.
    Some things to be aware of.....restaurants seem to take turns being closed, if you get the Atlantis app for your phone you can see the schedule of closures....you are given certificates for 2 bottled water per day, use them!......there is mucho walking involved, much like vegas.....waterparks shut down at 5 pm when we were there, hopefully your kids are tuckered out after a long day in the sun, otherwise the entertainment options in the evening could cost a pretty penny for them.........the waterpark is like a maze, explore, explore, explore! there is always something you missed..... there are people checking your hotel status at certain points, if you get a wristband at the aquaventure pools it makes life easier than dragging out your room key.....
    In all, the comped rooms made it worthwhile to us, but we would not likely go back. We enjoyed our time at Sandals better....probably because it is all inclusive and the tightwad in me didn't have to stress about the costs of anything....lol!
