If I plan on mostly staying at the resort, do I have to bring any cash with me or does everyone accept CCs? How about taxis?
Everyone accepts CC (taxis you have to request a taxi with CC) Im not sure about the casino if you plan on playing you might need cash for that, and you probably want to bring for tips too

You need cash for the taxis. Everything else is credit card or charged to the room.

I have a 1 king bed room booked with points at Grand Hyatt Bahamar. Does anyone have any tips for getting the room upgraded to a room with 2 beds or to a suite?

The water park was really fun and free if you're staying at the Hyatt

I'm looking at booking a large suite at Grand Hyatt, but the price for the suite for 2 adults+2 kids is $100/nt more than the same room with just 2 adults.

How makpid is GH on number of folks in a room?

I read on FT they hand out bracelets to access the waterpark, so seemingly that could be an issue?

another reason the points option is so valuable there, I booked 4 in a room (2 beds) on points without increased cost (and without fees).

Same. Cost about $30.
taxi drivers tend to overcharge the official rate. even if only by a few dollars.
before exiting the airport, there is an info desk and u can get the exact price (pp, luggage etc). when u exit, and see the taxi lines, they wont tell u how much until u get to hotel. make sure to confirm the price (before getting in). also, drivers will say they accept cc but when u get to hotel, they wont.
