Does anyone know if there's any kosher food in the grand club lounge in the hyatt? They offer club access for 3k points on paid stays and I want to know if its worth it.

It doesn't seem to be an official policy, but rather up to the hotel. Does anyone have experience with this hotel?

Hi All,

Planning a budget trip to Bahamas Atlantis and looking for ways to save money on food.  Anyone with experience?  I'm not about to pay $6 for a bottle of water and xx amount for bread.

Anyone experience with checking-in snack/food on Delta flights?  *Thanks*

Any cheap eats in or near Atlantis?  Tricks to get bottled water?

Any advantage of staying in the Beach tower vs the Royal tower?

I understand that the Royal is higher end, but does that mean that "extras" are also more expensive or if my room cost is the same for either tower then I should go to the Royal.

Basically my question is that both towers will cost me the same for base room rates... I'm just concerned that the "extras" (resort fees, room service, heating meals, etc) will cost more at the Royal or is that not true?

Thanks in advance

I'm sure you can call and find out. I believe I remember seeing that the resort fee is $5-10 higher in the nicer towers and possibly even more in a suite.
I just came back and i stayed in the beach tower. It's really old and run down but it was clean so we didn't really mind.
Pros: much quieter
Pool usually pretty empty, beach we were able to find a quiter spot
Lazy river is right there

Cons:
It's a bit out of it
It's a really long walk to anywhere and most shuttles and cabs drop you off by the entrance to coral towers and you have to walk through a long long hallway to get to your room.
I strongly suggest you look at a map before booking

Either bring water with you or keep asking the bars for ice water, it's free.

good point, royal is centrally located so not too far from anywhere. Plus they have bigger rooms and a good chance of a great view vs toss up by beach since there are like 3 floors vs like 20 in the royal...

I saw that the Hyatt basically includes everything for water-sports/snorkeling. Does the Atlantis include that as well, or is it pay-as-you-go there?
