I don't know if they are open or not but they were not destroyed. One picture I saw of one of the units showed about 4' of sand but the structure was still there.

Many places were originally reported as "gone" or "destroyed" and it ended up being untrue.

Jeepers, how far is this from the Bay? Is it within walking distance? It looks like quite a value. More $$$ to spend on food is always a good thing.

I have no clue if they have availability for when you want, but The Dove's Nest above Petite Plage in Grand Case is supposedly open. It's certainly more expensive, but they have beautiful views out toward the water there!

Its about 15 minute walk straight down the road to friars bay. Pleasant walk very safe neighbourhood. You will love it there. Pleasant people to deal with.

You responded to me, I guess by accident, as, as you know, I have no interest in El Zafiro. I think it is way overpriced for what it is. Plus they only had 4 rooms before the storm, as far as I know. Have they finished the rooms upstairs? Beachside Villas will be open as of January 1, with about half their rooms, and the rest shortly thereafter. I suspect, without knowing, that they are totally booked already.

But they do have a restaurant and bar!

Rooms are worth what people are willing to spend, I personally would like to stay at El Zafiro for a few nights, I like what they have done with the place.
Cheers,
Todd

Beachside Villas are/were awesome also. We stayed there last summer. Totally different kind of accommodations. We do not cook so we do not need a kitchen. We LOVE the convenience of the bar and restaurant at el Zafiro. The beaches are pretty similar at both locations. It might be a little more expensive but the old rooms were decorated beautifully. Modern, hip, beachy, upscale. In MY opinion. I am sure other opinions will be different. I'm sure the new rooms will be as exquisitely decorated knowing how Ed and Nicole did the ones that were all destroyed. The 4 upstairs were just beginning to open when the storm hit. They will be getting them open again too, I am SURE.
