Who eats airline food anyway (unless it's Hermolis)?
Just bring your own.
You answered the question. IIRC most airline food in Asia are Hermolis, no?

Because CX, KE, and SQ have Hermolis that means most are?

Agreed, but it's harder to do on the return, because you have to shlep it the whole trip.

Still worth it.
If I didn't from HNL I'd be eating a frozen chicken patty for a 10 hour flight that wasn't even double-wrapped.

I'm getting confused with the offers stay 3 nights, get the 4th for free. The price which they display for the room is let's say $750 so I figure "okay, paying $750 for 3 nights and having the 4th night for free is not a bad deal. But when I wanna check out it seems that the ORIGINAL price is $1050 per night and when they write $750 for 4 nights it includes the discount of 1 free night so I ONLY pay $750 per night. So frustrated. And I sure hope everyone here understands my concern  :P

What can you guys say about this resort? Does it look identical to the Halaveli?

Thanks. Hmm I was planning on ordering Kosher food like chuchem did... He said the food was good, so why shlepp along?

I don't really take my time reading unfinished TRs  :P

But honestly I DID read your TR probably last week and I remember reading that you didn't stay at the Halaveli, but I didn't bother remembering where you did stay as I was still planning on doing Halaveli (I still plan on, but I started looking into other places as well)

You expect me to go through every TR before asking about a place?

It's definitely expected you do due diligence.

You guys are too strict, I did read most of the TR here. I googled around to find a deal and I found a place that I thought has a good deal so I decided to copy/paste that link and ask if its a nice place. Once Moishe told me about Rots I just checked his TR again... And found everything.

I wasn't commenting on this particular scenario, but it is expected/suggested that a person tries to help himself first, as people are more likely to help someone who's tried to help themselves first.

Ohhh okay. I do try to do my research first.

im sorry i was so harsh. As stated by ajk due diligence is to do the proper research. I must admit you make yourself out to be a child. My TR is fully complete with every single detail... i didnt realize its the pictures which you understand :P (im kidding dont take it personal)

With that said Pls pm me for any questions, i still would love to help. There are a ton of TRs and its on;ly doing yourself good by reading them all and familiarizing yourself to ask the ppl who wrote them the right questions instead of asking 'will i have issues with tefilin' :)

i personally would go back to the viceroy again, i liked it a lot. they were so nice. Dagster wrote it in his TR that he took a grill. i didnt think about  it till after.... i should have listened. Dont forget you have your own porch

If you have any questions please search and then ask. PM me for detailed help.

I don't wanna go off topic. But, COME ONE, COME ONE

You just wrote "don't ask if I will have problems with Tefilin" that is exactly what I AM NOT asking. I am not asking if AUH-DXB is a safe airport, I am not asking if I can bring in bring in meat, I am not even asking if there is a Chabad in MLE, for all these questions I took my time and I read through a big part of this thread, I use google.com and I got all my answers.

My question does not compare to the above mentioned question. Sure AJK got annoyed when someone asked for the tenth time if EK is a safe airline. But my question is not at all the same category. What is this thread made for?


The end. :) and thanks for your TR!
