    Thanks for the update!!! Many who are going within the next few weeks are hoping this Reno goes well. Glad to see they started when they said they would.

    Day 3 - grotto is completely down but not cleaned up yet. The shower has been retiled and we couldn't tell if hot tub is completed. They have caution tape so we can't get a close up. We will keep you updated. Name:  image.jpg

    On another note - if they stay closed, they have gotten most of the kinks out of transferring to CTI for the day. We missed out on 2 days because staff we not clear on how au natural people were being handled. Lets just say that this trip has been...an experience. We keep everyone informed for a few more days. We are set to leave sat morning so hopefully someone else will continue posting updates and pictures. Most other au natural people changed resorts.

    You are wonderful!!! So many of us are scheduled to arrive shortly and don't want to go anywhere else. Your daily pictures offer the reassurance we soo desperately need. As for Couples and your construction team, way to go!!! Your making great progress and I'm feeling more optimistic than I've felt in a week. Perhaps when Jeff and Denise leave your should continue providing daily pictures as they are most appreciated and very comforting.
    Thanks again,
    Tammy

    Wow! What a mess..but it should be nice when concluded. Still, we liked the grotto so hopefully they will do something similar?

    No the grotto is completely gone with no intent of any cave or water feature. We tried telling them how much everyone loves the sound but its a no go. We are enjoying coffee on our balcony right now and will head over for more pictures later this morning. Today is Friday and the beach part of the au natural is supposed to open. I tried to schedule a massage down there for today but they said no so we will keep you posted if it actually opens up - our fingers are crossed hoping we get some time down there since we leave tomorrow. Thank you everyone for the nice comments about our pictures and posting updates. We understand how important they are for all those about to arrive. We have talked to Pierre and asked him to try and get some artists renditions posted so that everyone can get excited and also to keep everyone updated so that they are not disappointed upon arrival like we were. As for other areas around the resort: the tiling up by the balloon bar is completed and looks really nice. They are still doing a lot of painting around there. They are also retiling around the spa so you have to go to the salon to check in and then they will lead you down back stairs to the hut or hideaway rooms for massages. The roof has been redone at the main swim up pool (I'll post that pictures next). They have taken the first floor room in building b closest to a building and have gutted it to make into a model room - tentative plans to redo a and b block rooms. Time for more coffee - more later, we promise!

    Many thanks Jeff and Denise for posting pictures of the progress!
    It really helps to see the progress.
    We appreciate you very much.

    Please enjoy the rest of your stay!

    As for us, we are planning to visit CSS beginning 10/2 through 10/13. Our Anniversary is 10/3 and Sarah's B-day is 10/7.
    So hoping all construction is complete, but will enjoy our time together and making new friends regardless.

    Thanks again for posting the pics. We will try to do the same for others if construction is not complete by our visit.


    Warmly,
    Scott & Sarah

    Sorry everyone - I have reached my image quota and it will not let me post anymore pictures. I have asked for an increase and if they approve, we will upload today's photos. The hot tub is tiled but still not completed. All of the big rubble has been removed. Tiling has not begun on the bar or food area but the shower area looks completed.

    We would like to pass along our thanks to Jeff and Denise as well. Much Appreciated. We arrive 11/1 and are nervous about what we'll find at SSB. Seeing the pics (as traumatic as that is) and knowing what's going on down there is exactly what we need now. We hope everyone will keep the pics coming. We promise to carry the ball when we get there!

    Loving the plans though. That hot tub is just the ticket.

    How far/long is it to get to CTI from CSS? Regardless of the pool condition, as CSS guests are we able to do a day at CTI for fun?
