Just like in the US, I can understand the smoking ban for all roof covered enclosed areas (restaurants, rooms, bathrooms, etc) because of the lack of ventilation. But the balconies/patios which are mainly open? All other hotels/resorts that we have been to don't include that. Just not in the rooms. So if that's the case along with all bars (swim up and beach bars) that just have the thatched roof... I think it's going to hurt Couples. I know it's not by their choice but still, I think there are more visitors who are smokers that won't come anymore rather than non-smokers who have stayed away because of the lack of a ban.

We are already booked for CN this Fall. Guess we won't be hanging around the bars as much. And not sure if we will return after that. Again, if people were more respectful of each other, things like this wouldn't be an issue.
