The InterContinental Le Moana Resort  is on Jetsetter if you are interested.
Thanks shame it is sold out for my dates.

My tentative schedule is to arrive Sunday evening late, overnight in PPT, take the flight Monday morning to BOB and have till Wednesday night when I need to fly back to PPT for an early Thursday flight back to LAX. Kind of quick but certainly cheaper this way and I don't run into Shabbos dateline issues this way.

Is it hard to get seats in J from LAX to PPT using AA miles? I am torn about going as I have the seats in J on hold from LAX to PPT and back but nothing from NYC/PHL to LAX in either direction.

Trying to decide if I should go a different time which is why I was wondering if getting the seats with good dates is something I should jump on. As it happens I have a fully planned trip to St Martin for the same week, however with all my extra AA miles earned lately I am thinking BOB!

Fair enough  :) I have the seats on hold for a day before so I don't have to pay a change fee when it does open. Can I assume there is a better chance of it opening from JFK then from PHL?

Can you actually get all the way there? Or do you still need to take a paid flight?
