Most Budget-Friendly Hotels in Paradise Island

One of your most affordable hotel options on the island is the Best Western Paradise Island, which has apartment-style rooms offering convenient full kitchens and private balconies. If you can spend a little more money, try the Sunrise Beach Club and Villas, which puts you close to the beach without breaking the bank. Rooms here also feature full kitchens to help you avoid eating every meal at restaurants -- a major budget-buster.

While it's one of the most desirable places to stay, the Atlantis Resort is generally quite expensive. But savvy travelers know they occasionally run fall specials with off-season rates as low as $99 per night.

Try Hotel Alternatives Like Airbnb to Save Money

A wise way to save money on accommodation is to stay in a vacation rental or apartment rental. While some in Paradise Island are ultra luxurious and expensive, there are some smaller ones with cheap rates and more space than a hotel room.

There are only a handful of Airbnb options on Paradise Island, so if you decide on a vacation rental for your getaway, make sure you book early so you don’t lose out on your preferred place to crash. The price to rent an apartment starts at a little over $100 a night. If your budget has some wiggle room or you’re bringing a big group with you, you can rent a big villa with stunning views and luxurious amenities.

Visit Aquaventure for Family Fun

One of the most popular activities on Paradise Island is Aquaventure, a 141-acre waterpark inside the Atlantis Resort. Slide down a six-story Mayan Temple and ride through a lagoon filled with sharks (don't worry, you stay inside the enclosed tube). The waterpark has a total of 20 swimming areas, 11 pools, a mile-long river ride, and several water slides. With three kid pools, it's perfect for families.

The park also has a marine habitat and aquarium exhibits full of sea life. There's even a dolphin cay that serves as a dolphin rescue-rehabilitation center, and you can meet the dolphins in shallow water or take a deep swim with them. The park and marine habitats are free for resort guests. If you're staying elsewhere, you can purchase a day pass, but tickets are limited.

Book During Off-Season for Hotel Deals

High season in Nassau Paradise Island starts in November and ends in the middle of April, and it's a very popular spot for Spring Break. Prices will be highest during this season. Late May through November is considered the off-season, meaning it's the best time to snag hotel deals, but note that hurricane season runs from July to October. You can take advantage of lower hotel prices during this time, but be prepared for unpredictable weather. Some experts say June is the sweet spot with decent weather, reasonable hotel prices, and fewer crowds.

How to Get to Paradise Island

The airport that serves Paradise Island is the Nassau International Airport. You can take a taxi to Paradise Island, which takes approximately 30 minutes. You can also take water taxis or a bus to save on private cab fare. If you're adventurous and aren't afraid to drive on the left side of the road, you can rent a car or scooter and drive yourself to Paradise Island.
