Had a chance to add a few, consolidate the list of changes (new to us) and reorganized a bit.
The usual note - this is not for readers weary of details.
The BG (beachgrill) floor is white still boards, but painted white w/ several coats of paint per Mrs I.'s desire we're told.
The BG now issues pagers for your orders. Not a big fan, but it works.
BG has a hummus platter, but no fish sandwich (mahi mahi fillet instead)
BG Jerk Chicken is now served bare w/ 3 self serve sauce choices (mild, spicy, very spicy)
Heliconia no longer has antipasto or salad bar- you order an appetizer plate and/or salad.
Otaheite has a made-to-order salad prepared from a cart rolled out to your table.
The in-room bathroom toiletries returned to old style (no tubes).
The larger bed pillows are orange (as opposed to red or yellow).
Carrie has long dread locks.
Pool Bar stools have been painted blue (like the awning and the new boardwalk couches)
Replaced the tile around the Cassava buffet. It is similar but much newer, bluer, and brighter.
The hand dryers outside Lychee are gone back to paper towels. (were told it will be back).
There are humming bird feeders in the garden area behind the spa. This may be a July/seasonal thing
Guest lockers on south side of dive shop (they actually were there last trip, just didnt report it)
Entertainment Team is Simone, Anjelica, Nellie, Dianna, Carlos, Soren (Trainee), and Nana.
Auction now uses paddles for bidding (with Jamaican names/phrases on them)
Activities that are new:
o Beach V-ball at night under the lights - same night as beach party night
o Beach-athalon- comprised of a flip cup game, relay races, and other races
o Rainy day activities include movie in piano bar
The entire boardwalk will be replaced. But that is a project that could take awhile
