St. Maarten - St. Martin
Yesterday at 06:18 PM
Just throwing this out there in case there is anyone that will be staying at SBR in the near future. We are going in January but I have heard that the upper B buildings' top floors (4 and 5) are not ready for occupation. If someone is there I would really appreciate any info regarding the progress of those two floors (we are on the 5th)...still plenty of time but just a bit anxious

I tried getting info from SBR a month ago but didn't get a response as to when those floors would be done

This was in April 2018. Just nice and slowly plows front of ship into the pier.

Where was the harbor pilot?
Always wondered about those good deals on MSC cruises.

There was a good article in the Daily Herald about the status of the repairs. Apparently the work everyone has been seeing on the roof is just repairing the old roof.
If I read this right, they are talking about finishing the mold removal by August -September.

i just spent three nights in the most awesome "retreat" I've experienced in many years.

Yelverton Brook Eco Spa Resort in southwestern Western Australia near the Margaret River wine region proved to be my most exciting time yet on my 6-month journey through Australia, New Zealand and SE Asia.

Set in a rural, countryside and somewhat remote area and in the midst of a small forest, Yelverton Brook Eco Spa Resort brought me back to nature as it should be seen on occasion and with some creature comforts too like a wood-burning stove for the cold, near-winter temperatures of SW Australia, a jacuzzi hot tub and a log cabin-feel to the actual accomodation.

Plus, being visited by the resident mob of kangaroos day and night, the woylie's, the possums, the bandicoots, and birds----it was was an amazing close encounter with nature.

The only thing it lacked was wi-fi--and that turned out to be a blessing.

We are returning to Orient beach next year banana American Airlines crazy prices out of Philly chased us up to EWR again but we are used to that. Our last visit in 17 we did without a car for most of our stay. We are hoping enough shops are open by then that we can do the same.

Hope no one here in the USVI is 'supposedly' insured by Nagico. If so, according to the story, please contact government officials.

Out of adversity comes opportunity
Ben Franklin (1706-1790)

The aftermath of hurricane Irma provides a time of making profound choices for the country of how Sint Maarten should be shaped.

By means of this document SHTA will try to show its Vision of what an ideal Sint Maarten could like in 2025. We do so by outlining the qualities that we believe will make St. Maarten a great place to live, which in turn will create a great place to visit.

The story talks about routes to Aruba and Curacao also, but I assume they are talking from the Dominican to Aruba and Curacao, not SXM to Aruba or Curacao. As far as I know, there are no nonstops from SXM or Aruba or Curacao??

Here is an updated projection for the hurricane season. Apparently, Colorado State University announced a slight reduction in it's initial forecast for the up coming hurricane season and now calls for only six hurricanes rather than seven and it reduced the number of major hurricanes from three to two. I hope they are right.

Nude Resorts, Beaches and Cruises
05/31/2018 07:08 PM
We're headed off to SXM for next week, so time to plan the next getaway. Searching this forum, and the internet in general, I'm not seeing anything in more than two years on the CO area of Sandals RC.

I'd appreciate any info. Is the CO part of the island still there? Well maintained? Facilities, e.g. loungers, umbrellas, etc., provided by Sandals? Does the CO flavor of it tend more to nude?

Thanks!
