Surviving Sandy In Ocho Rios...Priceless!!!
Very intense time for a while at CSS on Wednesday. We were advised to stay in our rooms and hunker down. Pierre Battaglia and his wonderful staff did an incredible job of keeping us safe. As we left our room early Thursday morning we could not believe the devastation. Grounds looked like a war zone. Water and debris almost all the way up to Pallazina. BUT...seeing so many staff working tirelessly to remove all the "stuff" washed on to the lawn was inspiring!!! Pools were closed, due to trash/palms floating in them. But by noon the transition was amazing. I cannot say enough how impressed we were by the recovery of the resort. The only downside of the whole event was the constant complaining we overheard from the SSB regulars who did not get THEIR beach cleaned up quickly enough. Seriously???? We endured a CAT 1 Hurricane!! Sorry for the inconvenience. But the GM had staff working overnight to get his property back up to snuff. Not to mention that even on Saturday, when we left, the resort was still operating on generators and limited staff.
Kudos to CSS! Job well done during a very difficult event!
