    I have had zero of those beers. Glad you made it to a true craft brewery! Haha

    I totally slacked on these reports after a while but thanks for posting here. I LOVED Baha Mar but I really lucked out on the weather and gambling!

    I could see people who are sensitive to gouging, fees, and endless taxes and service charges getting a bit annoyed. I’m used to New York City drink prices so I thought it was fine. I thought the food was great! Casino was super fun. Dealers are a bit raw and free drinks are well only, but I found service outstanding.

    Thanks Tring! I had hit 6 quads in just over an hour (all on bonus deluxe luckily) and was just checking comps and banking the $1,600 win, but they said I had to wait til midnight....sooooo I needed to burn some time by hitting a Royal

    Got rated 13 hours at $50 for 3 nights and they comped my food and beverage which was about $300.

    Yeah it is a blast for sure

    Would be awesome to replace it with vegas trips love the balcony rooms and views.

    What places did you do dinners? Get any backnend comps at all?


    Best place to pick up a bottle of liquor before the airport was it the flying dutchman liquor store?

    I bought peach ciroc at duty free, hard to beat that price! Stopped at grocery store for water, mixers, snacks.

    I literally only ate at pool and my snacks. I really liked the food though! Did that one pool bar twice—Teriyaki chicken salad once, Tuscan chicken sandwich once, the Mexican food truck—breakfastburrito and a chicken bowl. And I ordered a burger from room service. Being solo drove my food choices—I look forward to trying restaurants when I go with a larger group!

    They back-end comped all my food and beverage. About $300. It was a minor pain in the ass but I crushed them and had a blast and had some time to burn this morning anyway so didn’t care.

    Some food pics:

    Yassss
    Smart move on duty free i will do that next trip. Did their casino desk still have their heads up their butt on how to comp still? I was there last april and they didnt know really


    Did you get comp rooms up front or a casino rate? If rooms covered and all food taken care of then massive score for sure for a top notch place


    Yeah the bbq good truck and breakfast burritos are damn good.

    Thanks for pics got me excited for end of feb

    I just bought rack and didn't contact casino up front at all, so no room comp, but I got a host so hopefully next time I will get casino rate. The casino desk was actually fine, but they weren't able to get the front desk to apply my comp properly initially. They left one meal charge on. I would have just paid it but I had 30 min to burn after checkout before my car so I went back and asked them to fix that.

    I'm really curious to see how decent the casino rate is. The rooms are pretty pricey.

    I was not able to get a up front comp room on my return trip for February but they did give me Casino rate.

    Rack rate is around $400 a night plus taxes. The casino rate is 332.50. For ocean view king with balcony.

    Last year that casino rate I paid for the same room was only $231 per night so rates have definitely went up unfortunately.


    Add about $100 per night for taxes Resort fee and all the other bs.fees

    Atleast i am getting hyatt club lounge access due to hyatt matching the mlife tier status.
    Club lounge acess for same room is $600 a night eeek

    Hilarious, I saw that the club access was insane. What Mlife Tier matches to give you that club access? I have it at Marriott from my United 1K status and have found it incredibly useful especially in these overpriced locals!

    I paid $335/night for a Deluxe Ocean View Balcony King. Really nice room. $132/night in taxes and fees. $467 all in. That is PRICEY for people used to getting comped in Vegas lol. Maybe it will be a one-time deal unless I’m with Borat or other friends at least splitting costs. Also if it rained the whole time it would be awful for that price range!!!

    Super nice place but cost to comp ratio may deter me,or not.

    Oh man I wish I had thought of that before this trip!! I’m Mlife Gold. I’ll have to complete that status match—thanks for the links!!

    Good luck with the Feb trip and I guess I wouldn’t care at all about losing an extra $2k gambling but for some reason it bothers me for a room . I guess cause there is no chance to win that big bet!!

    Lol yeah i hear ya when i hear paying for room anymore it makes me cringe haha.

    Looked up a 7 night cruise and that was around 5k so i guess would be in same sceneario up front.

    Doing 2 nights at atlantis comp to start off the trip only have to pay fees $131 total for 2 nights there and have $150 food credit and $90 freeplay.

    Hope the tier match helps ya on your travels

    Thanks!!! It was really easy and nice match comes with 4 Lounge Access plus other benefits, equal to status for having stayed 30 nights per year. These hotel status matches are pretty sweet!

    I talked to some people who had split stay with Atlantis and they said that was ideal, best of both worlds.
