Gone for good is what I have learned. No plans to relocate or reopen.

Why would that be your concern? In an emergency such as Irma, there probably isn't enough authorities to monitor the re-building. No different than the U.S.

Well, if they are not following the law and regulations perhaps they should not be rebuilding? Not at all the same as the US. There is also the chance that the structure/building would have to be torn down if not properly permitted and inspected.

I didn't make the rules/laws, I just asked if the ones in place were being followed.

The Hideaway at LaVista opened yesterday. Andrea said that it is only open for breakfast and lunch now. She hopes she can open for dinner this weekend or next.

I am so glad we bought at LaVista. Arrive at LVB Feb.3. Damage was quickly repaired and LaVista being worked on. None of the bureaucratic BS going on at corporate owned resorts. Andrea and staff have done a wonderful job. I'm sure there will be a SMF in the future, but I'm sure it will be reasonable. Great job.

We are at LaVista now and are so happy we decided to come, LaVista is what time shares should be!!
4 ships in Phillipsburg today and we have never seen so many umbrellas and tourist on the beach, this will be the replacement for Orient for a while. Great vibe at least on the Boardwalk.

Any word on Pedro’s rebuilding? It wouldn’t be the same without Pedro’s, after all they’ve been there since before Club O and survived so many hurricanes.

Lucky Stables at Seaside Nature Park has reopened. There is a little blurb in the Daily Herald today, talking about how the horses survived Irma by the owners just letting them range within their 30 acre paddock. Other than salt irritation of their eyes, they were unharmed. Animals have ways of surviving which are amazing..

As the list of things that are open grows it appears that on the Dutch side there are more than enough places to eat but a disproportionate number of places to stay, most of the restaurants we visited so far were not full by any means, I am sure some will choose to not open too quickly only to struggle with the fewer visitors. That said we have had great food and service on our first week. Palms, Toppers, Sale & Pepe and Izi so far.

They posted this list on Facebook 22 hours ago, so I assume the list is updated. Maybe the article itself was created in October...

Not sure if it has been reported before but we ate at Piazza Pascal last night which according to Donna was their second night being open to the public, they have been supplying the French police and military for a while with take out. As always very good food.

Add to the list a brand new Texaco gas station next to old Gournet Marche which is now supposed to be a future Casino. The gas station was remarkable to watch for the last two weeks as there was no canopy or even a driveway when we arrived and 14 days later shelves were stocked in the convience store and they are pumping gas!!
