Almost seems too good to be true.
When I was at the Baha Mar in early January I struck up a conversation with an employee working at the covid testing site in the lobby of the hotel and asked her if this "Travel With Confidence Program" is a real thing..... she confirmed that it is. (she told me that during the holiday season close to 10% of the tests came back positive) She explained how it works, a guest who tests positive at the resort (who hasn't gone anyplace else) can either quarantine free for 14 days in an ocean front suite with a $150 dinning credit per day or get a private flight to Fort Lauderdale and she added that it is also possible to stay a couple of days and take a private flight back to the US when ever the guest wishes to leave....

Two more questions:
 - If I get the cheapest room at the Atlantis (i.e. I am going to stay elsewhere, but want the room for the amenities) - how many day passes can I get for the water parks - i.e. if the room only accommodates 2 people, can I get 5 passes, or will I be limited to 2?

- It seems that if I try to book two rooms together that the prices are more expensive than if I book two separately. If I book two rooms separately, is it difficult to make them adjoining?

I got from Cinko/in room dining, wasn't super easy, and they were no help guaranteeing it prior to arrival, but once we arrived they got it done.

What did you have to say at the beginning of the stay for them to do this? Was there any limit on how much you could order, and did it have to be before a certain time?

We didn't make up specifics, but I used my head.
On day 1 I spoke to a manager and she said I can do it, that's all it was.

The Baha Mar program is much better than the general Bahamas insurance program, which we didn't apply for.

I thought the general insurance was mandatory?

Quote
As part of the Bahamas Travel Health Visa application, travellers will be required to opt in to the COVID-19 health insurance that covers them for the duration of their stay in The Bahamas, up to one (1) month. The cost of insurance is included in the Bahamas Travel Health Visa application fee.

I did it in 2019. Was pretty simple. Call Atlantis Casino VIP Services at 888-877-7592 and give them your Caesars Rewards number.

Any downfalls over regular booking?
You are welcome to pay for your stay if you want ($400-$500/night). But why when Caesars will give you 5 nights for ~$60/night in taxes? Only downside is it looks like this year they slightly devalued the offer and they only give you nights in the Coral Tower instead of the Royal Tower.

Supposedly they require you to gamble since you are a casino guest. But no one ever said anything about it when I made the reservation nor at check-in. I didn't gamble at all and no one raised it as an issue nor did they charge me for anything extra. Seems to be the same experience everyone else has too.

I booked into the Royal tower in December from the Caesars promo.

I keep a single Google Fi line for international travel. 1 voice SIM and 5 free data SIMs for family members. Pause service so I pay $0/month and unpause for 1 day every 90 days so I don't lose it. Unpause when traveling. Not cheap at $20/month (prorated for partial months) + $10/GB but very convenient way to get 6 international data SIMs that work almost everywhere. I use Google Voice to call the US when traveling (free).

Is there any public or cheaper transportation from atlantis to cinko?

On that note, are there any markets that are walkable from the atlantis?
