Is anyone on St Martin(particularly the French side)asking us to stay away until they are "ready"?

It now seems that every week another business has reopened in Grand Case or Orient. There is progress being made and St Martiners are working hard to be in business for the traditional busy season.

No. They are saying to come with appropriate expectations. Look, if folks only go to, say, Club O and feel like they can't bear to stay any place else, then obviously, those folks aren't going to come and shouldn't. But if you love all of SXM and are ABLE to put aside the need to stay where you always stay, eat where you always eat, and vacation the way you used to, then by all means PLEASE COME ON DOWN. There are places open to stay, places open to eat and the beaches may not have your favorite bars on it, but they are there and beautiful. If you can handle that AND handle seeing the devastation from Irma still, please come down.

Everyone is different, so I'm trying not to judge anyone. But what's not needed is the constant negativity. This isn't directed towards anyone in particular. Just the thoughts of someone whose family is on island and dealing with this!

This one has been up for 2 weeks but I haven't seen it posted here. It is a drone giving footage from the middle of November of the beachside Grand Case (the GCBC to almost Lolo area):
