Stayed by grotto bay, loved it.  Beautiful despite the pictures being bad on TA; my room was brand new.  The hotel has a private beach with clear waters.  If you are looking to stay by the pink sand beach stay by elbow beach resort, but I think that hotel is significantly more expensive.  I spent some time in there after going to the beach, it was beautiful.

Still 7.5k. Don't forget the $100 in taxes, though. Valuing BA at .9 CPP, that's basically the same price as cash on AA and DL ($135+$100 vs $238). For some reason, B6 happens to be a good point value to BDA (3.7k each way, which is over 1.85 CPP).
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

I didn't pay that much in taxes when I went if I'm not mistaken.

Taxes are departing BDA. Did you book return flight revenue?

We did as well, and nobody checked our bags.
I remember when a coke was a nickel, and you could buy VRs in OD.
