Impact of Globespan collapse?

Anyone heard what's happening with the hotels directly owned by Globespan in Puerto Pollensa? Heaven knows it was quiet enough there in October. I dread to think what it'll be like if such as the Sis Pins closes. Is that likely does anyone think? It's going to be a hard year ahead with people still being careful with money. We haven't planned any holidays abroad for 2010 - not yet anyway and we would usually have at least one sorted by now. We're doing short breaks here at the moment - down to Cornwall by train in May for example. (I know we're very lucky to be able to do that - not looking for sympathy!!)

As I must admit(hopefully I am wrong-no I must be?),but after saying that,it does come across that way...........

Maybe the word "ghetto" was the wrong choice of word?

Agree a poor choice of word.Should have been "enclave".Yes "ghetto" conjures up highly negative impressions which would be totally wide of the mark.Sorry.

No Golfer I have nothing against the Scots at all.I worked for a

Scottish company for 34 years and have therefore encountered more of them in my time than most English people.

I think I might be able to guess how you got that impression though.It was because I mentioned that many of the guests at ClubMac in Alcudia were Scots (you can tell that from the screen names and locations of the numerous reviewers of the 3 hotels in the complex).And that the most frequently mentioned complaint about ClubMac in the reviews is not about the hotels but the thoughtless,inconsiderate and wanton behaviour of other guests.

Hotel Sis Pins was owned by Globespan which prior to its collapse was a Scottish company and all the TA Reviews which are 100% complimentary are from Scots.
