I just completed a visit to Hedo 13-25 Dec 2015. Frankly, I can honestly say I've never seen the resort in better condition or operating this well.

Everything seemed to be in very good condition and the staff all seemed very engaged in what they were doing and focused on making sure they were doing a good job. Everyone seemed attentive to customer service and satisfaction.

I thought the food was good the whole trip. I know there are theories about the food being better when there is high occupancy, large groups in house, or when Harry is there. I think this trip debunks that in my opinion. There was only one small group there (so far as I know), occupancy was fairly light, and Harry was only there a few of the days I was there.

Due to light occupancy, chairs, floaties, and towels were plentiful and always available.

On a long walk down the beach off property, I did spot someone on the Sandal's beach trying to operate a fairly large drone with a camera on it. I know that's been a topic of discussion in the past. Sooner or later, that issue could visit Hedo and I hope management is prepared with an effective response to it. I realize the issues associated with drones are complex and I don't pretend to be an expert on the issues, but I do hope Hedo management gives it some thought so they'll be prepared if / when that issue surfaces at Hedo.

I've prepared a trip report for Denny to post at his convenience............ Denny, please check your 'in box'. If you don't have it for some reason, please let me know and I'll resend it.

All in all, a very good trip and I was very happy with both the condition of the resort and the attention of the staff.

Just my opinions and comments for whatever they're worth.....

All good news, except the drone thing... but that was inevitable. I hope the resort does move ahead of this before some of the more belligerent among us begin trying to knock them out of the sky with whatever they can launch at them.
Respect Lyle, I look forward to the trip report!

I'd say less than 50%, probably more like 40%, but really don't have a more accurate figure available.

Lyle

Was there the 11th to the 18th, there was a drone flying over the prude bar/grill one day, not sure if it would have been from Sandals or not . It was quite windy that day, surprised it was able to stay in the air.

We were there the entire Christmas week and left on Sunday the 27th. Both of us felt the same way during our trip and were very pleased at the improvements in the infrastructure and the overall service levels. Can't wait to go back.
