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).

Valid point. Hmm... the fact that you can avoid resort fees of $60/nite and any rollaway charges of $50/nite (officially per bed) just may make it worth booking an award, especially if:

--they only give out as many bracelets to the waterpark as are officially on the reservation;
--they only allow kids under 5 to eat free if they are officially on reservation;
--I can try to upgrade with cash at check in.

Thanks. I assume the kids must order of the Kids Menu at Cinko (shown below), but how does it work -- if at all -- with the Kosher food truck?

It's relatively new; it may just not be updated yet.

I think officially Ad Vi Lo-Ad. Although I have heard a couple data points that they honor Ad Vi Ad.

Any updated data points on upgrades (complimentary or extra cash differential) on points nights. Data points for globalist and non globalists would be appreciated. Anyone successfully upgraded a points night to the reserve tower?

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.
Very helpful. Thank you

Update: Took your advise and got a taxi at the airport to get to Baha Mar. we were 3 people and 3 suitcases, a stroller and hand bags and we paid $35 cash.
We had no issue at customs seems like they didnít even bother checking anyones bags.
I booked our rooms on points and the hotel confirmed that rooms booked with points do not incur a resort fee.

When leaving NAS, I was told that on the last line of customs, they allow you to apply and have your appt for global entry. On the spot!
We missed our sons appt in the states, next one was a year later, took him less than 5 min in NAS, done deal.
