I have been hassling on trying to book Atlantis. I have learned that if you book on the website, it goes in as a third party reservation. Paradise Vacations is shown on the credit card charge and nothing guaranteed. After several calls, I found that you need to call Marriott reservations and they transfer you to the Atlantis however even that is not enough. You must have them start the reservation to have it go in as a Marriott. They require full payment at time of booking. With that my rewards number goes in and I should get points and get 5 points/dollar for my credit card. With this they will guarantee bed type for platinum's too. Now to see if it really goes in as a Marriott charge. If it is not a Marriott charge, I use another cc. I just hope that I am done and I hope I have a better experience when I get there.
I started another discussion on if pre-paid food is a good value.
