Thanks, you mean for excursions? Transport?
Was it worth it? (dumb question, I know it's all subjective, but still...)

Disagree.  Water is calmer by Bahamas and the beaches are quieter plus I think the water is a little clearer

I would disagree to your disagree

but your points are true about calmness


the sand was butter It was the nicest sand I have ever felt and the water was pristine in GC

But the price tag will keep me away

Apologies to everyone for derailing this thread! Thanks for enumerating pros to each, would rather have nicer scenery than calm water.

Anybody know about Points policy for the suits at Grand Hyatt Baha Mar.

During Yeshiva week I can book a standard room with points but not a suite. It says : "Unfortunately, this hotel is not accepting World of Hyatt points or award during those dates. Explore our other rates or modify your search.". I thought there are no black out dates with Hyatt?

Alternatively, can I book a standard room with cash and then upgrade to a suite with points?

According to this, shouldn't Platinum members be entitled to complimentary breakfast at Atlantis? It is an Autograph Resort
