New Hotels

This translated from today's Novedades newspaper:

¨Marcos Mari Washbourne, Insohotel VP, announced that the group will build two hotels on the mainland of Isla Mujeres, in an area covering about 25 acres, 12.5 acres per hotel.

"It will resume this project and would begin construction in late 2015 to open two hotels in 2017, where the investment would be allocated $ 200 million," he said.

He said each building will be about 400 rooms and when advance their buildings would begin to look for the company that would operate.¨

A large expansion for IM with 800 rooms!

Keyword is 'mainland'. Looks like this is not something on the island but in Playa Mujeres. Thankfully....

Yes, it clearly says the mainland. But correctly identified as Isla Mujeres. Agree , good it is the mainland.

They mention Akmul and possibly Cancun proper as areas along with Isla.

Someone has broken ground in Akumal Bay for a new resort. The rumor is, it is a "Secrets" Resort..

Traveler, the new Akumal resort will sit in between and behind the ABR and HAC. Both these properties sold their ajoining land to the new developers. Some of the older ABR buildings have been torn down along with the Moonrise beachside bar.

Ah, yes, of course. I was aware of the construction and the selling off of property by ABR but for some reason did not put two and two together :) Thank you both!
