Good to know. Its always been a hard location to make work but nice to see something new. The old place never had any real amenities since it was more of a guesthouse but the beach is nice as long as they keep the cruise ship day crowd out. I know when we stayed next door at BSV once it got noisy at time. High season almost over, hopefully they can get it open quickly before it goes slow again. I hear the rent is not cheap there!
Scuba--yes, that was one of my big problems with El Z, no kitchens in almost all rooms. On purpose because of the restaurant, I'm sure. I wonder if the new place is going to have a restaurant, as there is nothing on the website about that. I'm not sure they can survive without a restaurant though.
Just a thought. A friend of mine told me this new place is asking for advance room deposits. As this seems to be an unknown start up, personally I would somehow if booking there make sure the deposit in protected just in case they can't provide the rooms. We had a couple of friends that lost their room deposits at El Zifro when they got evicted. Not to be NEGATIVE just be safe.
Interesting. Pre construction , pre open etc types of offers when nothing it ready or built make me a little extra careful as its generally really is a fund raiser to finance. It certainly sounds good now and I would maybe consider trying it. I just would need to know and little more information like who the management is,, who is involved , history , experience, past reputation , etc. Until then I personally would stick to anyplace else like next door BSV etc with a long good history until they have operated a little while and people reviewed. Or least put your deposit only in safe 3 rd party hands. It's just been a few months since EL ZIFRO closed and cost a lot of people to loose their room deposits. I am anxious to see what they can do, it's a nice beach down there for sure.
