Can anyone provide a recent first-hand report and observations regarding the status of the construction project underway with the lobby and dining room (not just rumors and 'well, I heard...')?

Can anyone provide Denny with some recent pictures of the project to post here?


Thanks.......

Just got back on Saturday. The lobby is still a construction zone. It looks like all the demolition has been done and they are only starting to put it back together. The completion date I heard was 2 weeks.
The dining room is scheduled to be done from August 10th to September 19th. This came from Jon Gross at the Cock n Tail party (or it could of been from Harry, I was a little drunk lol)
I took a pic through an open door of the lobby that I'll email to Denny.
The Prude grill is done.

The prude grill is gone? Does that include the washrooms?
I hope they replace it with something nice. I guess the two floor grill they had at Hedo III would be too much to hope for...



All in all, I'd rather be a hippy.

The prude grill is not gone, it is done. As in, they are done remodelling it.

Last week we found the temporary reception area to be inadequate. Very limited seating. We were next to be taken care of and it took over 45 minutes with a large group behind us. This situation was not well thought out at all. The reception ladies seemed to be permanently confused with the supervisor being just rude. With 5 star rates, this 2 star treatment is unjustified. The completed renovations are very nice, but the high rates should be implemented when the major renovations are complete. I expect that things at the resort will be tedious with the coming major renovations. With time the resort will become much nicer, but will not become a 5 star resort. There is simply no other place such as Hedo and we will continue to pay the Hedo Tax.

The Hedo Tax. Yes, I will likely pay it myself next year, but sometimes I wish there were options.
This is such a BIG world, how can there only be one Hedo?

can anyone tell me what form of payment is accepted to book a trip? We had a person we were dealing with and they requested we pay with PayPal but wanted it sent through the "Friends and Family" payment way on PayPal and there is no protection plan if you pay that way through PayPal if it's not a legitimate transaction and the person is scamming. That is why I'm now looking at booking through DennyP.

If the payment method seems suspicious, it probably is a scam. There are SO many shady people doing tours and booking these days, you are best to use a proper booking agent to protect your money.
Also, with a professional agent if something goes wrong (The hotel losses your reservation as an example) a good agent can help you out.

Just mt two cents worth.

Booking and paying via DennyP always works for me. You get service after the sale if needed as well.
Always a good idea to pay with credit card if possible, to get additional protection...
