Westin Resort, St. John US Virgin Islands (USVI)
Several of our blog readers have been asking for updates on the conditions at the Westin Resort since the damage incurred by the heavy rains a few weeks ago.
The pool is still not in operation, but workers were present and the job of refinishing seems to be progressing nicely.
The tennis courts have been cleaned up and all the old surfaces removed, but thus far, that’s it. Rumor has it that the hotel is thinking about putting down a hard surface instead of the old synthetic turf, but because of the significant expense involved, it appears doubtful.
The Kid’s Club, Arcade and Conference Rooms are still out of commission. The Beach Cafe is still closed and is being temporarily replaced by the Cruz Bay Prime above the hotel lobby.
My take is that work is being done, but certainly not at particularly feverish pace, and I would be surprised if much is completed before Thanksgiving.
Will keep you informed…
