I mentioned several weeks ago that the Atlantis Resort in Nassau would be joining Marriott’s Autograph Collection, and Marriott Rewards this fall. The change is now official for new reservations effective October 16, 2014, and you can earn and redeem Marriott Rewards for Atlantis stays. Of course, the big question is “how many points to stay there?!” We now know the answer courtesy of Marriott‘s FAQ on the topic.
Of course, I speculated before that this might become an option to pay for one of Nassau’s best cruise shore excursions. Now we know the numbers (resort fees probably figure in here somewhere too). I probably would not consider this for two people, but a family of four or more? I just might. Depends on how long you’re in port, and what other uses you might have for the points. Sometime over the next year, I’ll take the opportunity to test my question.
