According to a poster on the Iberostar board that just returned from the Beach, the Del Mar and Beach will close in 2 weeks because of low occupancy. Guests booked at these resorts will be housed at the Lindo and Maya as was the case during the swine flu hysteria. Here is a portion of the post.
>>Sad news at departure that due to very high vacancy's the Beach and Del Mar sides will be closing in 2 weeks. The Grand which looks great was only at 25% occupancy (not an option for us since we had a 18 month old and a 5 yr old with us )
The bell boy told us that they will be moving people from the Beach and Del Mar to the Lindo and Maya sides. They are hoping that they can reopen by December. Hopefully they can work on "fixing up" the property as it has some wear from our last visit in 2004. <<
I will try to verify this information today.
