They sell sim cards at a kiosk in the departure hall of the airport. Walk past the dunkin donuts on arrival, out the door, into the departure hall and it's on your left.
Does the Bahamar provide cribs?

Can't speak to cribs but they don't send up rollaways if it's not a suite. Send them an email and consider eating the luggage fee for a pack and play.

https://www.jewishbahamas.com/kosher

A large selection of basic Kosher items can be found in the two upscale groceries called 'Solomon's Fresh Market'. There is one located a 10-minute drive from the Atlantis Resort and another one which is a 15-minute drive from the Baha Mar Resort (5 min from the airport).

They both have a FULL Kosher section of both frozen, chill, and dry items.
 
Including frozen Chicken bottoms, Chicken breasts, Rib steaks, Ground meat, Challah, Hot dogs, Sliced cheese, String cheese, Deli meats, Kedem grape juice, Matzo, and Bissli.

Anyone know if this is still valid? Cheese, meat etc?

editing matters. they updated the resort fee notice on the Hyatt Baha Mar website and i got scared that they were going to charge all the yidden their huge resort fees on points stays, though Hyatt policy is those are waived. then i realized they just forgot a period before CASH FREE...

RESORT FEE: A daily Resort Fee of $59.00/per night plus tax will be added to your rate. Click here to view inclusions. Please note: beginning January, 2023 A daily resort fee of $65 plus tax will apply to all room nights CASH FREE - Please note that this hotel only accepts credit cards, debit cards and, where applicable, other contactless forms of payment. It is a cash-free environment.

Are they still requiring testing for covid these days?

I'm going there for an upcoming shabbos and i want to possibly make my own chulent and bring dips  and stuff with me.  How difficult is it to sneak some chulent meat and dips through customs?

Anyone recently stayed at the Grand Hyatt Baha Mar? I asked about kosher globalist breakfast, was told only the buffet is free and anything I eat in the kosher restaurant won't be comped. Anyone got their food comped?
Also do they provide microwave/mini fridge?

Thanks!

How strict are they by customs in the Bahamas?
Has anyone brought in vegetables, milk, cheese or meat?
Did you declare it by customs?

I've gone now two years in a row with two large coolers each time, and never had anyone inspect anything or even ask a question. Officially, I think that you cannot bring fruits, vegetables, dairy, or raw meat.

Do all Hyatt rooms have microwaves?

Does Cafe Madeline still sell kosher?
