Looking for a nice cheap getaway for an extended weekend.
Requirements are kosher/chabad so I don't have to shlep food and nice relaxing beaches.
I was looking into GCM but the hotels are quite expensive.

Actually just hit upon that and researching. Looks really nice.
Are there decently priced hotels near Chabad?  Not much in the Jamaica thread.

Probably best to ask questions there. People who’ve been there will check that thread over this one.

You can rent an apartment somewhere.  Obviously if you search hard enough you can get a suite in a hotel, if you have the points, great.  If you have the cash, great. 

Personally I rented an APT in Provo T & C that could sleep 4 comfortably (location wasn't so good)
