Paradise Island, Bahamas: Atlantis Resort and Casino
If you like your hotels big, this definitely would meet your standards.
The Atlantis Resort and Casino is big, big, big. It's designed so that you don't have to leave the complex for virtually anything, and it comes pretty close to that goal. There's a huge beach complex, as you might expect. There is a place to gamble. And there's an aquarium that most science centers would die for. A water slide. Bunches of restaurants and bars.
Merv Griffin used to own the place, which has undergone some renovations in recent years. Atlantis has done plenty of advertising over the years, so there are plenty of Americans on the grounds.
Even if you don't stay here, you might want to just walk through the place for the experience
