I'm going from 11/30-12/4. Staying in the Reef.

1) any minyan possibilities?
2) Anyone know anything about food?
      a) bringing food: maybe pomegranate meals which are ready made and flash frozen? do any of the monsey super-supermarkets do the same thing as pomegranate?
      b) in the bahamas: Is there a kosher place there? is there a delivery service for fruits & veggies? dry foods?
      c) any other food topics that I missed.

Did you try Chabad? http://jewishbahamas.weebly.com/.

+1 Brought in a suitcase worth of Pom meals and had no issue. Would also note that I was there last year during Yeshiva week and the Chabad Rabbi (who couldn't have been nicer) had a large spread every morning after shacharis of breakfast/lunch type food. Local supermarket also had a ton of stuff from the US with reliable hechsherim.

Looking for a points trip to Atlantis for 4 nights.

I want to open as many cards and use as many points as possible in order to have the hotel stay and flights expense free.

I currently have 30,000 starwood and 50,0000 BA Avios. About how far will that get me towards my stay?

What other credit cards would you suggest me opening, and how do I transfer points towards hotel stay at Atlantis?

I went 2 years ago to an Island off of Nassau called Eluethera, cell service works but will cost extra.  We just bought calling cards if necessary and had them with us just in case, otherwise just lived without them for a week. (believe it or not :)

Make an account with a fake name just to post. I would if it was simple, but usually it's going to mean a bunch of notifications coming in randomly and people shoving their advice or their chutzpah (Bahamas is for goyim) in your face, and then having to report everything back to you. Sorry  :(
