You need green pass. So either vaccination or recovery.
Atm only Israeli records qualify but it will likely change shortly

Hotel is open 50% capacity. officially all guests (including kids) need vaccination record or green pass to go in , or negative pcr within 48 hours of check in. No outside guests can come for food at this time even for meals on shabbos.

Pool and spa are open as well. Separate changing rooms with sauna  for men and women.

So if I have a cdc vaccination card I can make an ordinary reservation online and walk in straight off the plane?

No, why would you?

But they do have grape juice and challah at breakfast.

is room service or any of the restaurants open during yom tov/shabbos to order basic food? trying to figure out if i need to shell out for a meal plan for day meals when it seems they arent really as worthwhile as night meals (and the breakfast plus maybe a sandwich or a salad should be enough).

No room service/restaurant on Shabbos or Yom Tov 1 AFAIK. Yom Tov 2 is available of course.
Shabbos day meal is very good IMHO, though you can make do with breakfast if you want.

If just ordering basic food, perhaps just do takeout on Friday and save the money.
Although breakfast should be enough.
