WE had the mother of all storms Thursday night/Friday morning but thanks to Pepe and his amazing hard working loyal staff the place was back up and running within the day. The winds were very strong so much so that all of the new glass refurbishment could not take it and came crashing in. Gone is the glass surround around the large swimming pool along with the outdoor glass patio on E floor. Thankfully this all occurred at night and there were no fatalities - had it happened during the day - well who knows - chairs had come crashing down into the gardens from E floor. The staff and Pepe worked so hard to get it all right - we had the option of leaving or staying - we chose to stay along with 200 guests - some that did leave went to Puerto but returned to this hotel. Today is beautiful clear blue sky day and it is hard to believe that only 24 hours ago the staff were clearing all the debris up. Part of the facade on the front of the hotel has gone too plus some glass balconies blew out. No one got hurt so all is good in the end.
We were fed, looked after and treated fantastically given the circumstances. Everything virtually back to normal but when Mother Nature strikes......the winds were so strong - we´ve never known anything like it.
