Default Construction timetables

I talked to the Divi US office last week and they said that the construction on the new towers should be completed by the first week of December. I asked them when the new pool with the swim up bar should be open and they said it should be open by new years week. I asked them when the new eleveators will be installed in the Phoenix towers and they said they had no idea.
What the heck, 2 out of 3 isn't bad.

tom, i spent some time at the divi less than 2 weeks ago and i can tell you that i personally don't think it will be ready then. it will be magnificent when done and worth the wait but i can't picture it being done in 3 1/2 months. i hope it is but don't be totally surprised if it takes several weeks longer unless they get a burst of speed. that being said, i wish i owned there. it is my favorite property on the island.

Sherry I know you're right and it is going to be beautiful--but it's taken so long and now another year may come and go...
I keep looking at the pictures hoping one of these days we'll actually get to stay there (ha ha)

if you are really going to aruba week 6 i am going to predict that it will be done by then. that gives them an extra 2 months after their latest prediction and i think it can easily be done in that time frame.

let's hope my prediction is right.

We are week six. I can't wait to see it-when we were there in April it was just a shell.
I'll keep my fingers crossed that you're right and the extra 2 months will do it.

Can we get an accurate update as to when the buildings will be ready. I own weeks 3-8 in Buildings A (5-8) & B (3&4), and have been told that all 4 buildings will be complete by week 51. However, that is what DIVI guest relations is telling us. Is this reality?

Thanks to anyone who can offer assistance or information.

Our son is going week 3 and we're going week 6-I'm back to wondering if either one of us is going to get to stay there.
How do they handle our accomodations if the buildings aren't ready-does anyone know??

I think they are sending people to the Golf village or maybe if there is a room open at Phoenix they will move them there. Our folder we got when we arrived had the towel cards for our room 209 villas and 506 in the towers. I think that where we were going if they didn't finish our bathroom upgrade in time, glad they did, we like the villas better. Who know what they'll do. Hope you enjoy. It was hot and humid because of the past storms.

Last year they put our kids at the Divi Dutch and then us later in the year at the Divi Golf. I loved staying at the Links, but didn't use the beach as much as we normally do. I'll be disappointed, but we always love our time in Aruba-I'll have to see the glass half empty!!
Elaine-wherever we land-we'll try to meet.

Sounds like a plan. I think that the beginning of January we should start a thread to see who all's going to be there in February!
