Hi

The construction was started but then put on hold 2-3 years back and remains so

It is a wonderful site and will be the best resort yet when completed

I will get you an update when I am in Mexico shortly

I am sure they will be able to fill it many times over when it does open

Count us in. I spoke with a gentleman at the front desk at EPM who said that EOB is under construction. He said only one person knows when it will actually open - and that is God.

My wife and I were married at Sandals Whitehouse, but like the rest of you we prefer Excellence. While we love Mexico, it would be really neat to experience Excellence in Jamaica.

When we were there in mid May, we heard that costruction was still on hold due to the economy. Lets hope it gets back track soon!!!!

Me too I cant wait until it eventually opens. The main challenge will be maintaining the Excellence resorts standards in Jamaica. It just wont do if staff adopt a 'manana man' approach. I am sure it will be a sucess.

I must addmit we were very impressed by the staff and the Secrets and Couple Resorts in Jamaica

Seemingly the problems normally occur back of house rather then front of house

I'm going to the excellence in Dominican and I wanted originally to go to Jamaica but I just recently heard that it's still under construction still going on so I can't wait because that will be my first choice for next year.. I think sandals is overrated for what you pay and I've been told by many people that at the excellence employees go above and beyond to please..
