Anyone know how easy it is to get a fridge in the room at Baha Mar?
easy but they may charge u 50 a day. I think they waived ours bc we have a baby and needed for bottles. We emailed before.

If you call they'll tell you $50 for your stay.
Though try asking for them to waive for globalist. Or empty the mini bar and use as a fridge and before you leave refill it with all the cans and everything. But then again you may be charged for taking everything out even though 3 days later you put back everything. Ymmv

Which building has nicer rooms in Baha Mar? or are they all the same.  Is there a reason to choose on side over the other?

Thanks

Instead of getting ripped off. Finally someone put together an app for a ride that would cost $35. Only $8.

Works like uber and lyft.

I was really unimpressed with the shabbos day meals. If you have another option (can make your own in your room) definitely do that. Friday night on the other hand was really nice.

See if that guy has any cars on the app avlb, don't think hes an official taxi. And not sure how many guys he has working for him. But his prices are $8-$10 for 1 Pax and $14for two passengers

 Or these guys for 25-27$
These are really taxis.

Whatsapp them.

+1 (242) 823-8294 $25

+1 (242) 425-1789 $27

+1 (242) 801-8007 $30

Or at the airport for $35+.

BTW there's a set price which there'll officially supposed to follow. See here.

January.

I was told by bahamss embassy that 30 days is their policy and I will be fine. I call JFK/jetblue to confirm this and they say 6 months. I try to get paperwork from bahamas embassy to bring along to the gate in case they give me issues and they say they've never done that and I should be fine.


Whats next step?

 Word of caution. If you're wondering how one can charge so cheap when every other taxi is double the price. About 2 weeks after you leave it seems he's charging the cc on file $175 marketing it as a clothing. So probably a good idea to check your cc.
