reef is the way to go
All suite hotel with balcony, small kitchen microwave and 2 small fridges, pools are empty beaches are the least crowded.

Close to none, I brought in a lot with me, and they barely asked any questions as we were leaving. Customs was really easy and relaxed there, they even have live music in the immigration's hall.

Hyatt pushed their grand opening back. Again. Scrambling to book Atlantis.  Beyond the "deals" on their website, any suggestions? Looking for a room in a nicer tower.
