They did not tell me that when I landed, at the hotel if your not vaccinated they ask you take a rapid test, that's also YMMV
From what I've read on TA/FT the 48 hour test is not yet being implemented at hotels and most still think its 5 days...the question still lingers as who is enforcing the 48 hour test and what will happen if you just skip it and do your own emed on day 5 and leave the country...thats what I'd like to do with my kids next week.

Has anyone stayed in the 1-bedroom suite and knows if the ovens have a self-cleaning function and if the cook-top is glass? Thanks.

I arrived today. No mention of covid test within 48 hours at immigration or Hyatt Baha check-in. So I donít plan on taking it unless Iím asked to. On another note: Cinkos is A++. Sushi and meats were unbelievable. Very pricey but the real deal (unlike Ember Banyan Mayakoba which was a joke compared to this).

are you vaccinated?  Covid test upon arrival is for unvaxxed.

Yes the food is amazing, very pricy is a stretch tho, steakhouse pricing, impressive for a kosher steakhouse in a hotel...
In-room dining pricing OTOH...

Did they provide bracelet at check-in? If so, is wearing it enforced?

They provide bracelets at check-in, but you don't need to wear them.
It's open your room door and to get into the water park.

But without them they don't let you into the water park? Even kids? Or can you just tell them that your kid lost their or something? They charge $50 a night per extra kid, so I'd rather not include them on the reservation.

Hereís a few pictures. Popup shop at the pool was also really great. Spicy tuna roll was Reserve Cut level. High grade tuna caught right offshore. @Dan I bumped into Graeme Davis (I know him from Mayakoba days) at the popup shop. Had a nice convo about the kosher concepts theyíve created and excited about. 300 folks ordered meals for Shabbos so they moved meals to the Grand Ballroom. They said yeshiva week is providing a great boost as they had many cancellations this month. This property is well suited for yeshiva week as itís massive and places like the waterpark have felt pretty empty thus far. Letís seeÖ

And YES all Baha Mar pools heated inc waterpark. Was chilly a few days ago at night and kids pools were warm. Just not lazy river and wave pool (at least felt cold to me).

Didn't either but that's what the Rabbi told me. Just for Yeshiva week.
