Was going to upload:

#1 Our kosher meals arranged by the hotel being served at their beach restaurant
#2 Snorkeling boat
#3 the island we snorkeled near
#4 little fish

But got a message the upload folder is full... so no more pics for now...

I think I'll call it quits here..  overall great stay.. cost was $1250 to buy 250k hilton points. thanks to upgrade to gold (thx aussiebochur) I paid only 200,000 for the 5 nights.. after our stay we had about 50,000 points posted so comes out to about $750 for the actual stay. but we had additionals for about $2000 includes 1250 for transfer for 2, food at $40 a meal, trips, jetskiing, babysitting etc..

Keep in mind going off season gets some great deals but you could get some rain.. we had a couple days like that but didn't; bother us at all, we just relaxed and took things easy.

Hope you enjoyed the pics..

Awesome TR!

Was it worth buying the Aussie food or would you just bring all your own food next time and heat it up yourself?
How old is your daughter?  No safety concerns in an OWB?
How cold was the pool on the OWB? Too cold to swim in?  Is a pool really that essential in an OWB?

Aussi food was expensive, but tasty.. portions aren't huge.. they sell for $16 direct from caterer.. but was definitely worth having it some nights.. I spoke to management made them a list of which meals I wanted them to order, but paid only for those I ended up eating.. I recommend when getting these dishes to get the ones which aren't going to be dry, like meatballs, spaghetti bolognese etc...

Daughter is 12 months. Not all resorts allow them in overwater villas.. ours did. It wasn't a problem at all, she was with us at all times.. I've travelled extensively with 1 year olds in the past 5-6 years and it's never stopped me from visiting places in europe, asia or elsewhere..

Safety is always a concern, but you keep doors closed, and watch them well. at no time were we worried..

To be honest I went in the pool once.. the resort is so quiet, that I spent most of the time outside or in the amazon or infiniti pools which were pretty much "my own"..

Water in the vila pool was a bit cold, but my daughter enjoyed it nonetheless.

You had them babysit when you went snorkeling?

And when I went jetskiing, and when I went to the bar to relax one evening...

Having young kids doesn't mean you have to be stuck in CLE  ;)

I hardly think we've been stuck in CLE: http://forums.dansdeals.com/index.php?topic=17753
But trusting random non-frum strangers is more than most (first time?) parents will do.
