Re: Post Irma List of Things open on SXM

this is all good, and it shows real effort to get back what was lost. However!!!! There are lots of folks stressed out due to owning and can not even get back to access damage to there property, or even try and start repairs... Lets pray the airport can get back to get flights in, or else all of this is good, but not for most... I am not even referring to vacationers, but we and many others have to get back, we can not take another vacation, and this is our home away from home... And frankly, all repairs will make the Island good again, not just resorts... I am glad there gusto to reopen stuff, but that stuff really can not survice without outsiders money... This is horrible for anyone invested in the Island... But considering the damage, which is huge, its a good sign...

Re: Post Irma List of Things open on SXM

There is one thing I am curious about when the restaurants reopen. Since there has been minimal electricity on the island. I am assuming refrigeration is scarce as is/was water and food. Do the restaurants now have a fresh supply of food? Is there now enough water available to drink and now has an abundance for sanitation purposes?

There are a lot of places that have electric now. To my knowledge, FOOD is not scarce, neither is water. Super U has been advertising that they have fresh veggies, as well as plenty of frozen meat, and I believe that they have fresh meat now also. Now a lot of people may not have MONEY to buy food, etc., but I think there is plenty of food, if you can afford it. What is very scarce is building supplies.

Re: Post Irma List of Things open on SXM

It is odd that anyone has stock or much of the stock that would be needed to match a menu. Alcohol isn't much of a problem, it's the meat and bulk supplies that come into the island. Containers are backed up at the docks. There are a few main suppliers that handle the food service industry, and I cannot remember the French supplier but Im sure they might have had a bit of looting done, as has Divicos damage and looting. Merchants Market being the main supplier on the Dutch side on Orange Grove was damaged and a statement from them included this as of Sept 25th. but no updates since...

"Our St Maarten facility was hit the hardest, followed by St Thomas. The Anguilla and St Croix warehouses fared well with minimal damage. Many customers businesses were damaged/destroyed and there are curfews still in place. We are assessing each island separately to determine what needs to be done at each location to rebuild/repair so that we can return our businesses to the pre-hurricane state.
The coming days will bring all of us more great challenges.
The Merchants Market Team will be here.
Still Standing."

Some places are open but I am sure very limited in what they have for the people who had to stay behind and keep moving to rebuild what they have lost, but I would not think up to standards that most of the travelers are usually accustomed to...

Which just throws another question out there that I have, They are announcing that Nov. 1st the IGY yacht club will be open for the Yacht season. There has been an announcement of 200 sunk and or submerged vessels are in the Lagoon. Just like anything to function here, there are a chain of events that are not even in place yet for it to be totally realized what it will take.

No one has mentioned the fact that during Luis, the Govt. didn't allow any incoming air or boat traffic that wasn't not registered as a resident or owned a business until 6 months after the storm...

So far, 8 restaurants have opened in the Simpson Beach area.
Simpson Bay Yacht Club
Toppers
Pizza del Sol
Lebanese restaurant (by Travel Inn)
Buccaneers
Sale & Pepe
Pat's (in front of Boathouse)
Italian restaurant in Puerta del Sol Plaza (across

Grocery Stores
Several of the smaller grocery stores are open.
Additionally, the grocery store on the Maho corner
is serving it's hot buffet again.

They initially canceled all villa reservation for October. November status was supposed to be determined on Sept 30th. They sent a note today that will be decided later today. Looks like our reservations for November will be right on the edge on whether it's a go/no go.

Apologies if anything is incorrect, but, it was a status email from the company looking out for the villas we regularly rent from that includes property managers on site right now. Not sure how I verify info is any more correct than from a reputable company with people on the island.

When it is cut and pasted from another site without verification, anything is possible. le bar de la mer has been gone for years as far as I know and I think an attempt to come back as Bistro de la mer was made. I do not think they survived but perhaps I am mistaken.

Re: Post Irma List of Things open on SXM

I did see where they changed their original edict, that even any REPAIRS had to have a building permit, which I guess is kind of a big deal in SXM, to get one. Theo was concerned about requiring a building permit, as was I. Now, the rule is that if you are just REPAIRING what was there and it was permitted, you don't have to have a building permit. Although truth be told, I really don't think the government at this stage has the resources to enforce this stuff at all.

Building a structure is not repairing a boat bar.

I am pretty sure it will be "any thing goes" until the government puts the hammer down. Kind of like Captain D's Rib Shack.

Not to rain on the parade......but...... who are the customers for all of these places that are "opening"??? The vast majority of the people on the island rely on the tourist industry for their income........and there are NO tourists.

Re: Post Irma List of Things open on SXM

A lot of places, like Mark's, Pineapple Pete, etc., are a big percentage of locals there, who still may not have electric and/or water. From personal experience, if you don't have electric, etc, even cooking seems like a chore and it's nice to sit down and eat a meal prepared by someone else. Plus there are a lot of relief workers on island.

Yes, that is very true but if the local people are not working they won't have the money required to eat out. It is going to be very difficult for everyone there for quite some time. This is not a case of "build it,they will come".

So very true!! I have wondered also if they are not working, how will they afford to go to restaurants. Some don't even have homes. I would like to know down the road how many of these businesses are making ends meet.

I just think it should be clear that many people/businesses chose NOT to have insurance. It is through the generosity of others that they are able to rebuild, pay employees and continue to operate and not from their own forward thinking or financial situation in all cases. Some even bragged about not having insurance.

Just curious. Many people that have homes on island are trying hard to be on island to check out their property's and a business owner is off island looking for funds to rebuild his business vs trying to get on island to inspect what happened to his business.

It is sooo wonderful to see some of our favorite places starting to reopen!!!! I pray that these businesses and restaurants can hold on for a year before most of the tourists start to return. With just about all the timeshares closed till the Summer...and major hotels not taking reservations, there will be a lot of competition for these places, with a limited number of tourists.

That is really too bad. Skipjacks, at least in our opinion, is one of the best restaurants on the island for consistently good food, good service and reasonably realistic pricing and all this in a location that makes dining there a pleasure. I will personally miss it and feel bad for the displaced staff.
