OK, thanks for that info. Once we get electric back at home, I will begin trying to compile a list of what is supposed to reopen and when.

Who are they feeding....the looters????
I just hope Maria stays far enough away to not do any MORE damage..




Not sure where to post and probably already mentioned somewhere, but, Toppers is supposedly already open again.

We're also Club Orient fans, and were scheduled to go there in Nov. It's where we're happiest. Instead, we have booked 10 days at The Natural in Curacao - going in March. We just did a search (Bing) of c/o in Caribbean, and read nothing but positive reviews. No official c/o beach, but possibly an unofficial one.




We booked at the same place. There's a beach just a few minutes away by car. And apparently there are three beaches in an area of Curacao northwest of The Natural Curacao called "The San Juan beaches" -- Playa Chiki, Playa Manzalina and Shon Mosa, where sunbathing bare was "fine and customary" "as long as no families were around." And of course, there's the nice pool at The Natural. There's a fourth, but its not really a beach to lay out on due to all the coral.

Thanks, David. I don't know when you're going, but it sounds as if you've been there before.

We didn't get that impression of The Natural either and just booked a bungalow for November. It might make a nice alternative. We did Couples years ago when we first started going to the Caribbean and didn't want to do it again - too many people, too much structure and rules.

while we wait for Club O to rebuild I'm interested in hearing from other Club O lovers like us, about other options in the Southern Caribbean (Bonair, Curacao, Aruba) that didn't suffer much if any, damage that also have a c/o beach or resort. Have any of you experienced any of these islands and found any nice c/o resorts or beaches? thanks




Bequia is so remote, it also has some nude sunbathing ...

Don't forget Aruba. Like Curacao & Bonaire, it's not in the hurricane zone. We spend 3 weeks there almost every year and just came back 2 weeks ago. Great beaches, terrific choice of restaurants, excellent choice of places to stay. Dutch charm and friendliness. A bit too Americanized but still a good choice.

Wondering where you enjoy best in Aruba? Restaurants, or do you cook? Are there grocery stores?
Favorite restaurant? Lighthouse?

Always hated the metered pouring of drinks at bars on "7 Mile" in Aruba"
Did you experience that?

Nudity is prohibited by law in St. Vincent & the Grenadines.
Hope Bay is so isolated you might get away with it, but like most of the former British islands, it's very conservative in that respect.
