Who is Steve and Bert? Could that be Steve Wright from GCBC?

I would imagine it's referring to Steve Payne.

A very sad day for yellow umbrella aficionados..............the place always will be vulnerable. With insurance the units should be easy to replicate.

At this point concerned for the people and their loss of livelihood.

At first thought the chair and umbrella enterprise would provide cash but to who

Surprised guard shack didnt make it but checkin and boutique did.

Possibly more concrete block in the rebuild.

The beach also will be reset...........and the fate of papagayo



Hoping the rebuild is quick

I understand Hurricane Luis leveled Club Orient in early Sept. 1995. Does anyone recall how long it took for it to bounce back after that disaster?

I am so sad for the entire staff and the owners. My hope is that everyone is safe. Our hearts are with all of the people who consider this a home away from home and those whose home it is. We will wait for advice on how to help.
Club O Strong.

I believe it was at least a year or so till they had a limited number of guest arriving. In some instances they where better off back then, the office was OK, the generators were functioning and I believe they provided fresh water to the island as the reverse osmosis plant was running. Perhaps they'll now connect to the local water and power grid.

Club O bounced back so quick! Barry was serving us lunch on the patio of a beach chalet that was gone. It was a makeshift Papagayo dining area till they did repairs.

It wasn't more than 2 years because I have a Sep 97 photo of the front of Studio 25/26 as occupied that I downloaded from somewhere - background is noticeably devoid of any trees
