Within the cancellation window already. Can it be added later or needs to be there at the time?

I have bought a GOH after the fact and called Hyatt to add to reservation without a problem as long as you havenít started your stay.

Do you need a passport to fly to Bahamas?
If you make a one way trip will that cause trouble?

Yes - you need a passport - it is an international destination outside the US. In my experience, departing airline will require proof of a return ticket to allow you to board the flight

Why did you think that lunch would be credited?

What if you don't order breakfast? Is there a time cutoff?

Pretty bad experience at Cinko last night. I will give the benefit of the doubt since I was only there once.

I know I was in the Bahamas, but I am super disappointed as I heard so many great reviews.

The beef skewers were cold.
Korean tacos had way too much sodium (assuming soy) and terribly dry. They must have been in the warmer all day.
Coliflower was ok, it just could have been cooked longer.
Bimbimbap had so much potential, but ruined with way too much soy. (Also they added mushrooms when I asked for no mushrooms).
Churros were hard definitely not fresh.
Cocktails were amazing.

I must note everything was presented really well and the waitres was super nice.

No, but I'm sure they're aware. A friend, who was there the same day as I was, and the previous 2 days, mentioned that the day I came was just an absolutely **** show and the previous 2 days were amazing. I guess just don't go Tuesday Evening.

I heard it was being kept under the radar for yeshiva week. DDF is probably (hopefully) fine. But multiple DD Insta Posts could be a different story.

Hearing this has been done away with (shocking). Any recent data points to confirm?

Anyone have data points on GOH at bahamar?

If I book a suite award with points (currently a 15k/night premium), will that help me get a further upgrade with GOH (either to a 2BR or a residence), or will they just keep it the same?
