My wife and I took a quick three-night trip to the Bahamas in June. We stayed at the Comfort Suites Paradise Island, right next to the Atlantis Hotel and Casino. With our stay at Comfort Suites we received a pass to use the facilities at Atlantis. They included the casino, several shops, the swimming pools, the aquariums, and the nearby beaches. For an extra charge we could pay for a swim with the dolphins.
The three nights we had weren't enough to take advantage of all the options that Atlantis had to offer. There were also movies offered at different times of the day, a disco (one for adults and the other tailored to kids), several restaurants and lounges, and the activities of the water park. Not that we would have taken advantage of the Mayan temple slide! Our nerves wouldn't have been able to handle it.
The arrangement of staying at the Comfort Suites, which is clean, friendly and reasonably priced, and being able to use the Atlantis facilities, was great and we would definitely take advantage of it again.
