Has the Gala been Sold?

I read on a thread that the Gala may have sold to Rui effective 4/15. Doeas anyone know if this is true?. We are going on 4/22 and are crossing our fingers that we are not going to have to deal with renovations or new staff.

I know for a fact new management was put in place on tuesday Feb. 15th and the rumor was that it was the RIU. Don't have any info on any changes. Maybe if you go to playainfo.com and post a question to Playamaya (Steve Ryberg, manager of that resort) he might have some insider info. Good luck and let us know if you find anything out!

We were at the Gala from February 19-26. I was introduced to a senior staff member by a repeat guest. The first topic of conversation was that the property had changed hands on February 15. There was no mention of the identity of the new owners.

I have been told that this hotel is opening under a new name (Sandos Caracol) in November, and that they are building an additional 500 rooms.

I've been trying to find information, but am having a hard time confirming any of it.
