Haven't seen anything here for awhile regarding the Orient beach bars. Does anyone have any update at all on the likes of LaString, Orange Fever, Aloha, Pedros and the rest? These poor folks now have been ''out of work'' for a full two years. Hoping these folks are doing okay. Any update will be appreciated.

In June this year, I saw ONE of them being worked on, with concrete block walls up, but I understand basically nothing has happened since then. I guess they are waiting until after hurricane season is over.

That one with the walls up started back in March when we were there. Boy are they slow there....those poor owners and employees that have now been out of work for two full years now. It's so sad.

Florence is still co owner of the Villa and just returned this week from vacation, there son is now 15. I can remember when he was just a young tot.
Although we did not see his set up, Luc just reopened on Orient this week. Maybe chairs only and definitely not in the old orange Fever area as it looked sad.
