Default Constuctions at Divi??

I just wonder if there is sombody out there that knows anything about the constructions behind the Vista Buildings. Last year they had started something i wonder how far they've got. I'm just a little bit curious.

Hugs to you all

I was just thinking the same, as we will be staying in the vista buildings in a couple months as well...

Last year, we asked the TimeShare folks what the construction actually was, and they indicated that it was related to the Divi Village and would offering allow them to offer their residents the ability to use beachfront units (im sure for a fee!).

I was hoping that they were going to be individually owned condos, so i can have a new goal in mind when playing lottery! A place on our favorite beach! But no such luck!

It was my understanding that it was going to be some new rooms and 1-2 restaurants. We were toold in March that the construction had stopped because of the economy. I was never told anything about it being for the Divi Village and I would think I would have since I own there.

Smile Re: Constuctions at Divi??

we got a letter in march-april from divi saying that renovations would be delayed until jan 2010 due to the economy. amazing they can find the money to build new condo units, but not to renovate. what exactly do they due with our maintenance fees we have paid over all the years?

Yes, I got that letter too. They are building the new Phoenix and Links rooms and condos with our fees. That is why they said you could ask for an upgrade to the Links because the remodeling was not done. We like our room (Village Villas) so stayed in our room in March.

To my knowledge, they were never going to build anything to do with the Village by the Divi Divi, that was going to be a Divi Divi upgrade.
