Hashgacha

They are certified Kosher from the local Rabbanut. (Ein Bokek)
The meat is NOT Glatt.
The chicken is Rabbanut Mehadrin.
The cooking is Bishul Yisrael according to the Rema, not the Beit Yosef.
The vegetables are Gush Katif. The cabbage is NOT.

The Mashgiach says, the hard cheeses are not Mehadrin.

Breakfast:
- Breads, pastries, cakes - parbaked or raw frozen , Chasam Sofer Petach Tiqwa
- Packaged yogurts and puddings - some are B"datz . Rubin, but be careful some could be cholov nochri, check packaging
- Grapefruit and Orange Juice from Spout - PriMor ,Chasam Sofer Petach Tiqwa
- Hard Round Cheeses on cutting board- Cholov Nochri
- Gvina Levana, cottage cheese - .....................
- Feta, Bulgarian Cheeses - He claims Belz
- Some type of butter spread- some are cholov nochri
- Fish- He says B"datz ( he says B"datz about alot of things....), but its usually just herring and mackarel
- Tuna - He says B"datz, but there is usually some type of leafy veggie in there i.e. parsley
- Instant Coffee Machine - Cholov Yisroel of some rabbi in Ashkelon
- Espresso Station - Milk is usually Mehadrin Tnuva, you can look at the bag (Yes milk comes in a 5 gallon bag)
- Hot Stations- Not really sure, they serve dinner there also which is fleishig, I'm guessing they switch the stations, but i wouldn't....
- Produce - He says B"datz ( he says B"datz about alot of things....)
- Cereals- some are cholov nochri

Basically the same cakes and fruits as breakfast.

Discount, shmiscount. It's 60 NIS, minus VAT if you check in with a tourist visa and charge the meal to your room.

I think that a regular person walking in would be charged more. CMIIW

Dunno, but I don't think any of us here are "regular people".

I booked a few extra nights a LMDS since I wasn't sure which nights I would need when I booked. I am trying to remove a few nights from the reservation and SPG says that it isnt possible without cancelling the whole reservation.

Does anyone know of anyway to modify without losing the reservation?

Worked like a charm!  ;D Thanks a lot. I wasted so much time on the phone with SPG trying to get them to modify the reservation.

5/26, 5/28, 5/29 & 5/30 are now available for points.

Just let us know when and which nights you're canceling them so WE can book them!

You're funny. A second ago your post said "maybe your should sell them" now it says:

Are you planning on booking them to sell?   ::) I was posting so hopefully another DDF member can book it.

Selling nights at the LMDS is not permitted on DDF.
