One of the two big trees in H-block has been removed. I'm afraid that the remaining one has limited time left. The tree removal has opened up the space and let in more light.

Interesting! I love(d) those big trees. Sure gave some nice shade and ambiance to h-block. Any pics that do the new look justice? Also, it'd be great to know what the schedule is for any construction - like the upgrades to the premium rooms. I'd sure like to avoid that time, since we've had a few recent trips when they were doing serious work. Thanks Denny!

See my May 10th Newsletter at https://dennyp.com/dennyptravel/newsletters/newsletter_archives.htm for information on the room construction dates. At any one time they may only be working on one or two rooms. I just hear today that they may do some in July when they are unoccupied.

It also looks like they are resealing the roofs in H-Block. I saw rolls of tar paper on the ground and heard a blowtorch on the roof. The also replaced the sidewalk from the main road by the OVN rooms to the rooms. After their first attempt, the surface was filled with inscribed names and other graffitti. Kids and wet cement! They came back today and redid the surface then covered it with a tarp.

I love that. It gave me a giggle to know the place is still a playground for the ungrownup.


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

Ran into Gary Williams at dinner today. (He was the Hedonism II GM quite a while back.)

So, how is he? How does he like the change of ownership?

Respect.

We only spoke for about 20 seconds and that was about him coming back to Jamaica for Sandals.

He's General Manager at Beaches. He posts on Facebook quite often. He's looking and doing well. He was a great GM back in the day...


Follow your dream! Unless it's the one where you're at work in your underwear during a fire drill.

I forgot to mention that I saw a purified water station on a post in the courtyard right outside of the gift shop last week. Several more are reportedly coming. They are transitioning away from the plastic water bottles. Reportedly, the resort will be providing reusable souvenir bottles at some point.
