the dutch military kicked everyone off property so the king and the marines could stay there. They didnt provide alternate shelter or transportation. This is verified from staff meeting. they brought in housekeeping to clean, then fired them. WTF. last i checked marines had the port and airport. guess they can only stay in resorts. these are homeless people and the staff! call dive, tell the news! sickening. I am an owner. they are deleting all comments from the facebook page and have cut off all lines at the HQ.

While this may well be true, some additional verification would be appreciated. Anyone can make a video and post it.

Your heading is "divi" kicked everyone off and then you follow with the "dutch military" kicked everyone off. Two very different situations.

Divi reported this....

UPDATE ST. MAARTEN




On behalf of the staff, we are pleased to confirm that all American guests staying at Divi Little Bay Beach Resort have been checked out and are safely returning to their homes. Resort staff would like to thank them for their help, understanding and good cheer in such unprecedented circumstances. These remaining guests left this afternoon on Royal Caribbean’s Adventure of the Seas. Despite two hurricanes, one of which was the most powerful hurricane ever recorded in the Atlantic, Celine van Meer (General Manager), Thijs Scheepers (Assistant General Manager), Barry Richards (Chief Engineer), Gizmo (the Parrot) and all the other staff members at Divi Little Bay hope all guests enjoyed their stay as much as they enjoyed serving them. There were friendships formed that will never be forgotten.




We have a few remaining guests from other nationalities that fly out in the morning or are waiting to access the French side of the island, St. Martin.




For more information on the ships itinerary, please contact Royal Caribbean’s Emergency Service Center at 800-256-6649. The ship-to-shore number is 321-953-9003 (ship-to-shore phone rates are $7.95 per minute and they accept only Visa or MC).




We are so very happy and thankful that guests will be reunited with their family and friends very soon.




With all guests safely on their way, the staff will now begin rebuilding what was lost into something better. We also would like to thank all the caring people outside of St. Maarten that have been so supportive.




Regarding future reservations:


Now that both Irma and Jose have passed, we will be commencing with the evaluation of the resort. Our management office has already communicated with owners, members and guests who had reservations in the next few weeks.




Please continue to watch for updates, or contact Divi Owner Relations Department via email at ownerrelations@diviresorts.com, or Divi Reservations Department by phone at (800) 367-3484, Monday – Friday, 8am – 5pm.

The facebook page is someone in the hotel who took a pic of the Royal Dutch ? Group... I was wondering myself where the king would stay? He is staying where i had my honeymoon in 1982. <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/circle.gif" alt="" />

I don't see any marines in the photo. I don't see a resort or a lobby that looks like it just went through a hurricane either. I am seriously questioning the validity of the entire alleged situation.

Wouldn't there be a little military personal if a king was involved?

I see some pictures of the outside area of Divi and it looks pretty bad. Then we have a lobby or room with no damage and electricity? Something is amiss here.

If in fact the Marines/Military did take over the hotel, I would think people would be glad to have the presence of them and the help and security they are providing.

This one is done until there is verification other than a post on facebook and hearsay information.
