Surprising friends


We went to surprise friends, great fun! Staff warm & welcoming again.
Upgraded to tropical suite in bldg. 3 west end by the gym. Wanted to mention the palm tree in front of our balcony with all the dead fronds hanging down, is a roost for the blackbirds. Really neat to watch the one bird call them in by pairs. They nestle in and it calls in 2 more. Must have been at least 40 birds if not more in there!
Reported the black mold on the chair cushions and they took them away, saying they were all like that, so no replacements.
Other guests mentioned they were told it was to be sold to Blue Diamond and they are planning to invest 80 mil. adding two additional bldgs. to the east side. Not really room for the extra people compared to beach area. They would certainly have to add at least one more restaurant! Although they don't fill the specialty restaurants ever -poor service in them and food really isn't an improvement over the buffet in any case.
HOT TIP: Delicious spicy dish made up mainly for the staff - served at the lunch buffet. Sweater weather, not too conducive to swimming.
