I usually bring food along in F and they are happy to freeze and reheat. Just dont forget extra foil

Great idea. I'll probably just pick up something on the way to airport and do that.

YMMV.  I've been rejected before, though most FA's will allow.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

+1, beats any airline meal.

And even if not hot meals, sandwiches work just fine...

Seems like a no-brainer on where to stay...

Is the tax in the Hyatt the buy up to OWB?

Yessir.
Were there other resorts in that price range?

The above is for 5 night stay. If I choose the Halaveli, I can stay for 6 nights for essentially the same price as 5.

So, that's what we're going to do.

For 6 nights, the breakdown is this:

Yeah, the Zitahli was close for 5 nights. Didn't check that many more after speaking to a guy who's been down there dozens of times. He said Halaveli is the way to go.

Heh.

For 6 nights? You can beat $3600 including all taxes, fees and transfer? In a place as nice and as highly rated as the Halaveli?

Prove it  :D

Don't need to prove anything right now.  I'll do it myself in a 5 star hotel in an OWB with a pool for less than half of that and post a TR :D

Thanks, man! :)

Looking forward! even if you like rubbing my face in it instead of making a helpful suggestion...

(But, for all those paying attention, that means Dan won't be staying at the Hyatt :P)
