Currency / Credit Card

Before you travel to Atlantis, notify all of your issuing banks (ATM and credit card) you'll be traveling to The Bahamas with your corresponding travel dates to ensure access to your funds readily. Please know that upon check-in, you are able to place a credit card on file for your incidentals or pay a deposit via cash. If you leave your credit card on-file, you are able to use your room key throughout the resort for purchases minimizing your need to carry cash and/or credit cards and an ID. There is a holding charge on the credit card, which is based on various factors, including number of nights and type of package booked so it would be best to ask your front desk agent at check in for the best estimate.
 
Atlantis is a mostly cashless resort, but you are able to pay with US Dollars at the front desk for your charges if you choose.
