I'll be heading back in November for a couple of weeks, once Mayanabo re-opens. I'll be sure to write a review when I get back. I've had a few messages from friends/family down there, and all seems well, though quiet.

I'll be doing a weekend as a 'walk-on' at the Brisas in October. Hopefully the weather settles down by then. I've heard Camagüey has been getting an abnormal amount of rain every afternoon/evening lately.

Carol, I hope the health issues you spoke of are resolved soon and you're both able to be back to Santa Lucia where you belong.

Carol, I hope you are both feeling better soon. Hugs!!

As for Mayanabo ... when the hotel opens back up there will be a few changes. The lobby bar is supposed to be open until 2:30 am as well as the "piano bar". They are extending and changing the "piano bar" and there will be two areas to listen to the bands. They used to have a small band playing in front of the lobby bar for those who don't want to sit in the piano bar. They are bringing back the blonde female lead singer from the band that was there 5 years ago to sing in 1 of the bars. I think that would be the girl from Acheré or possibly the one from Giron but I think it will the girl from Acheré. They are hoping to have all of building 2 renovated and they are working on restoring the "children's centre ".

Much of the staff are painting and helping with the renos.

Remember this is what's going on right now, it can change tomorrow.....
