As we passed RIU Tropical Bay (I is that the correct name?), it was completely closed off, and there were lots of construction workers there.

Respect.

Thanks for that information. I checked and they are not taking reservations for arrivals before the end of October.

This huge renovation started on time: early August. Rumors about what is changing includes a new rooming block (or two), a new kids pool, more eateries. Similar rumors foretold that the new Royalton, while under construction, would add over 1000 new rooms but the actual total turned out to be 599 (still a large number, but not anywhere close to the rumor).

I took a close look at the RIU renovations as we passed by.
There is definitely a new building being built on the end of the resort closest to MoBay.

Respect.

There was only one building added, during the renovation.
I was told that the rooms in the new building are similar to all the other rooms.
And in their room numbering scheme, where the first digit is the building number, I guess the new building is Building zero.
