Yesterday spent the day at Club O. Saw a large excavator clearing brush and loading onto a dump truck by Papagayo. It is my understanding the entire property will be demolished and hauled away over the next two weeks. That’s all I know.

It seems like you don't even know that! You seem to be speculating based on a short observation and possibly some discussion with someone who also is not knowledgeable about the situation.

There is another thread on TTOL where this was discussed (to which I also replied). It was also posted on Facebook earlier this week.

The Copropriété de la Baie Orientale (commonly known as "Club Orient") now has a court-appointed Administrator who is tasked with getting the Copropriété back operating smoothly. He also has the authority and obligation to respond to formal requests and orders such as that from the Prefecture regarding cleaning up areas of the property that are deemed to be dangerous. It is clear to anyone who has been there or seen photographs that Papagayo is slowly falling into the water and the rubble from the nearby chalets is also dangerous to beachgoers, especially those who trespass on the property.

Club Orient is a French Copropriété that owns the land. The Administrator does not have the authority to sell the property but, aside from that, has fairly wide-ranging authority to meet his mandate.

Any official news about the site will be posted on the ClubOrient.com website and the corresponding Facebook group. Neither has been updated in over 3 years but the information there is still valid (as far as I could tell).

The facebook group is PRIVATE, so, unless one is a member, then one cannot see anything. It is useless to post a link to a private facebook group.

Are you feeling left out? Private Facebook groups allow people to request to join them. And I suspect many people on the SXM TTOL group may already be in the SXM Naturism group (or may want to be).

Not at all. Not everyone is on Facebook and even fewer are in private groups. Anyone can join but most cannot see this. No need for that attitude.

* Wow, progress great to see. Even if it is safety driven, court ordered progress.

* A clean slate of sand might make it easier to envision some new buildings. I hope so.

The word on the beach is this demolition is Papagayo and 4 beachfront chalets only.

100% true that not everyone is on FB. I went on about 20 years ago at my son's urging. I have a few groups there and the largest, re: SXM, is private by intent (I don't want lurkers). It has over 40,000 people. Word gets around. TTOL is a very traditional discussion group and as far as I can see it works just fine.

Sad, but a good thing as it’s was a danger attracting danger. Hopefully the ocean/beach will reclaim that stretch. Same with the chalets. Hopefully this will lite a fire amongst those with money in the game to either rebuild or sell.
