Default Atlantis Resort (Nassau, Bahama's) - Can we get in?

I just read the Cruisemates artiicle called "Discovering Atlantis" = http://www.cruisemates.com/articles/ports/Atlantis.cfm and checked out Royal Caribbean's Excursion list and I can't find this anywhere. I am booked on the Explorer in May and was interested in going here so has anyone gone to Atlantis either though an excursion or on your own? ... and can we get into the water park (will $ xtra since some our group want to try the hugh water slide!)

Thanks

To use the water slide and pools you have to be an Atlantis guest. They give their guests armbands. You can book a room for the day, which will run you between $300-$400. Someone else posted that if you're a guest a Comfort Suites which is a little cheaper you can use the Atlantis facilities. Not sure if this is true or not.

We hired a cab driver right when we got off the ship to tour us around the island. He showed us a lot of stuff then took us to Atlantis- dropped us off at the door (TOTAL ZOO!!) and parked the car, then showed us around. It's an amazing place- I know for an extra $25 you're allowed to tour more but our guy said it was a rip-off (you're not allowed to use pools anyway unless you're an overnight guest- I've heard from others that you can if you're a Comfort guest as well). Then he got the car and picked us up to go back. You can get there from the water ferry too, but quite an uphill climb when you get there. I'm not sure if it helped to have him with us (did we get to see more than if we'd wandered in alone? I don't know- he seemed to know tons of workers though which can't hurt, and we may have been booted earlier without him since we didn't want to pay the extra $). Check out Tripadvisor- I know they had a lot of customer comments re Comfort Suites and Atlantis.

We booked a room at the Comfort Suites across the st. I think we paid a total of 150.00 for our room. There were four of us. Chked in, went and got our wristbands and could do the digs and have full access to all at Atlantis. Fun way to spend the day. Food is pricey there. Try and pack a lunch from the ship.

Enjoy!

We just spent the weekend at Atlantis and saw several tours from ships walking around the Dig and casino (people had ship logos on their bags, clothes-not too obvious!). You can tour the Dig (not sure about other areas like the outside aquariums) for I believe $25. However, at all the entrances to the grounds (outside the building doorways, from the beach, etc) there were staff checking for wristbands (colors changed daily) or room keys. If people didnt have them, they were turned away. The only way to use the pools, slides, beach is to be a guest there or at Comfort Suites.

You can visit the Casino and walk around the outskirt of the property without paying. There are many view points for picture taking. There are guards at the entrances to the heart of the resort. Once you buy the day passes, you can use all facilities including tha aquarium just like checked guests. Some local tours will include a few hours inside the resort.

How much are the day passes and does it include the waterslides as well?
I thought the waterslides were only for lodging guests.
