Fully reimbursed.
And you can't get those reimbursements if you use points towards a straight cash equated purchase?
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

The yogurt that they have is certified kosher. We didn't bother going for breakfast any of our 5 days, but they gave us complimentary fruit and yogurt today (check out day) and the yogurt is certified k. The brand of the plain greek yogurt is tempo and the fruit yogurt is allure.

Brought some cereal, oatmeal, they gave us a welcome basket of fruit (passion fruit, oranges, apples, pears, plums, peaches) that they refilled once for us and our butler got us even more when we asked him. We didn't really have a huge breakfast, but after our dinners from the night before, we didn't need much. We did one dairy Pom for lunch and two meat pom for dinner every night. I'm not leaving hungry, I'll tell you that much.

Thanks for sharing the ideas, I wonder if they would give just milk for free?

LOL this whole discussion has been about kosher breakfast
Second,  this has nothing to do with cholov yisroel.  I myself drink all milk in America.  But that's America,  not in a foreign country where I don't know the government standards.
So take it easy

every thread is the halacha/Kashrus thread.
Also once you hang around the forums a little you start building mental profiles of people.
So from you asking about the catskills I would say your Jewish.
From you spelling "ladder" as 'latter" I would say you are frum.
And from your links to chabad sites and references to the Rebbe I would think you are Lubavitch and dont eat CS.

But you "love" Bon Jovi and eat vegetarian meals in lounges and airplanes so you cant really build an accurate profile.  :)

So what's JTZ based on his posts a Yeshivish Catholic? Or a Chasidish Christian?

There's ultra ultra pasteurized milk in the rooms that they give as part of the coffee (doesn't need refrigeratoration until you open it). I'm sure you can ask for more. I didn't take a pic of it but maybe chuchem can as he is still there and then ask your LOR.

To be fair if you trust a fine in America works, in Muslim countries it's probably the death penalty or something...

Are you telling me Muslims aren't known to give up their lives?

It's a matter of perspective. Likely not many pigs in the country to begin with. Also for all we know they bring in milk from somewhere totally different.

I took along a kosher milk. Mz wife uses for coffe and we even had them make a milkz fruit shake for us today with our milk
We also had them make a salmon sashimi platter for us for first course before dinner.
Yes, its expensive 39 +22% per person
If you will turn over every dollar, this is the wrong place for you. Every can of coke is 10 Dollars... we are really enjoying it
