Even with all these inclusions, the price per night at the Raddison is the same as a night in one of the no-view rooms at the Atlantis. We had ever snorkeled before, and we had a great time viewing the sea life in the clear water near some rock formations. The Radisson offers guests access to the island's only golf course.

The staff at the resort made this one of our best vacations ever. Because New Year's had just passed, the resort was only half full.
