I just completed a visit to Hedo 12 24 December and thought Id offer a few brief comments & observations

Aside from the construction, the rest of the property looked like it was in very good condition.

The construction project was being executed with intensity and vigor. Lots of visible progress was apparent daily. Hotel management was calmly stating it was going to be completely by Christmas and they seemed like they were very much in control of the whole situation. As reported elsewhere on this forum, they did exactly as they said they would and had it completed by Christmas. Well done.

Overall, the staff situation and performance looked good to me.

I was pleased with the quality and selection of food available and I think the Chef and food service staff is doing a very good job.

The table staff was also doing a very good job and I thought the service during meals was all just the way it should be. The bar tenders all appeared fully engaged and doing a great job.

My room was in very good condition and housekeeping was doing an excellent job of taking very good care of things while I was there.

The closing number on both Friday nights was Hotel California and included something I hadnt personally seen before. In the closing number, the guitar player (Sweeney?) stepped out for a long guitar solo during the number. Winston did an excellent job of setting up the moment for him, and the guitarist TORE IT UP. Well done!

When I was checking out on the 24th, a guest was in the lobby looking at a video camera equipped drone he brought with him. I dont know what he was planning to do with it or whether Hedo has a policy regarding operation of drones over the resort, but that probably will need to be addressed at some point. Even if Jamaica doesnt have regulatory guidelines for operation of drones, Hedo can still implement whatever controls and requirements they want on their property. If the existing FAA regulations in the USA were used in Jamaica, operation of any drone on Hedo property would be prohibited because its within 5 miles of an airport.

All in all, it appears to me things are going well with the resort and I had a great time!


Denny trip report soon come.
