Has anyone been there recently? Is there an issue with construction of new condos adjacent?

We were there 3 months ago and didn't notice any problems with construction, however things may have changed in the past few months. Although the food in the restaurant was excellent and the head waiter (who also doubles up as the islands senior police officer!) was great, we were the only customers there. It was a Saturday night, so if you don't want to be in your condo all the time it's worth considering.

There is currently some construction next to Frangi. From what I hear there is a new building going up that will include 3 apartments. This is not part of Turtles Nest and it's VERY close to Frangi.

We were there early December and did see construction--we didn't stay there, so not sure how the noise level might impact in early morning. During the one afternoon we were there, there was practically no impact. The Frangiapani was our first choice, but we didn't stay there because it was booked--its a very cute property. We ended-up staying at the Rendezvous Bay Hotel, which is on a fantastic beach. We stayed on the lower level of a beach bungalow and practically spilled out on the beach in the morning. The water at Rendezvous Bay is more calm (thought the end at the Cuisinart is more rough since its not as protected) than the water at Meads Bay, which is actually on the Atlantic side.
