SRH no longer under Sandals management as of July 20/13

Just to make everyone aware an announcement was received today on the SRH facebook page from Sandals Resorts International. They have confirmed that Sandals will no longer be managing SRH as of July 20/13.

I understand the property will be managed by Cubanacan, Does anyone know what other properties are managed by this company?

They manage Brisas and Club Amigo resorts among others.

Doesn't sound good for the Sandals Resort as the Brisas chain certainly doesn't compare to Sandals ... :(

This is not good news, does anyone think there's any chance they will keep up to Sandals standards?

I've never in my 12 trips to Cuba stayed in a Brisas or Club Amigo.

I had the same reaction: definitely not good news for the property. Perhaps the take-over by Cubanacan is temporary until a new foreign partner can be found?

Generally speaking Cubanacan own 3 star resorts so this will be a big step up for them. I wonder why Gaviota didn't step in first?

Maybe Cubanacan will manage it until another partner is found ....this would make an excellent Melia property :)
