When the shrieks and splashing of children gets to be too much OR just because you want to enjoy the sand and surf, get yourself to the beach. The two most immediate options are the beaches on the Atlantic Ocean and Paradise Lagoon.
Two more out of the way beaches are Cove Beach (walking distance; private and gorgeous) and Paradise Beach (a short drive away). I highly recommend Cove Beach. Although it's a few minutes' further to walk to, the unspoiled splendor - this is not hyperbole! - is worth it.
Kids really like the Lagoon although I personally did not. To me, it's a little too lake-like and with the ocean so near by, I said "no thanks." I also didn't like the numerous water bikes and other rental toys that take up a lot of surface space.
Amenities provided by Atlantis are high quality. The lounge chairs are comfortable and as a fair skinned person, I took advantage of the sun shades several times per day. Waiters will frequently stop by to offer you another pina colada, strawberry daiquiri or bottled water and in the hot sun, you are likely to take advantage.
Jet ski rentals are available and it's a fun diversion.
