Memories Grand Bahama

Has anyone heard when the Memories resort will open? We are going to take the new direct flight this winter from Winnipeg and stay at Memories. I'm a bit nervous staying somewhere with no reviews but so excited to see Grand Bahams Island!

We booked the swim out rooms but recently found out the pictures they had posted at the time of our booking were from their Jamaica resort. They have since removed them so we are unsure of what we are getting now and are not even sure if the resort is going to be 100% complete by end by early Feb so with our "worry free" cancellation from Signature/Sunwing we tried to cancel and rebook somewhere else. Even though it is still 45 days out they are withholding $500 from our total amount paid that we can use for another trip within 1 year so we are stuck having to rebook with them and hope they offer a similar hotel and a similar price -which we are not finding so BEWARE of Signature/Sunwing "worry free trip cancellation" as they do not advertise their full cash back criteria table. For the hotel we think we were taking too much of a chance that the hotel would not be 100% ready and the swim-out rooms not be what they had originally advertised.

Was the $500 what you paid as a deposit to Sunwing?

We paid full price to Signature/Sunwing and then purchased cancellation insurance for an extra 50 each. The insurance email selling the option indicates that you can get 100% of your money back depending on when you cancel but it didn't provide a criteria table of cut off dates. We figured 2 months out we would be good. Upon cancelling, we found out there is no option for 100% back - at a minimum, if cancelling 45 days (or more) out they will withhold the $250 pp in vouchers. They say you can use this amount in the year for another vacation if you like. If you do not, you loose it. We waned to caution people that if you are thinking of using the cancellation insurance, it is advertised falsely.

Just spoke to sunwing, looks like Jan 16,2014 is still the official opening. We're thinking of booking for the march 13th week out of Edmonton. Would be nice to know others are as well.
