Does anyone know the status of the Iberostar Parisio Del...

We are supposed to go mid December and I would really like to know how much damage it took, what's left, what's open and/or closed? Should I take my TA's word if they say it will be up to to 5 star standards? Does nyone have any lins to pictures? Has nayone just returned from there? Please help!!!!

If they are open and I think they are supposed to be then, then I would go. I'm sure they will have it up and running before you get there. The theater roof was gone and some of the restaurants took some damage. They were already repairing that when we left. I will say however that I do not consider the Del Mar to be a 5 star hotel. If you want 5-star you should go to the Lindo or Maya. I have not developed my pictures yet, but I will post them when I get them.

the Apple vacations site is saying they will open the IB Paiaso resorts Nov. 4th. The theater will not be ready, so the shows will be held in the convention center.

Oh that can not possibly be true. The convention center sustained extensive damage to the interior. They were putting on shows in the Lindo theater when we left. I'm sure that's what they meant. I certainly hope so.

Also at the MAYA three small private pools will not be ready. Lindo guests will not be able to use the resto(s) at the Italian and I think the one enxt door, so they will be given an option to use restos at the Maya (if what I read is true).

The Lindo-Maya beach bar will not be open (they didnt say about the L-M beach GRILL or the Del-Mar/Beach beach bar.)

It is possible that your hotel may not have some things ready, and you may be asked to sign a waiver which acknowledges that everything is NOT operational, and you accept it (that way you cant go back later and ask for a refund because "I didnt get what I paid for".

YOu should be fine by december.

Just came back from the Del Mar yesterday. We had a great time. Everything is up and running except for Building #10 which is at the beach. Great service and a fun place. Everything was in great shape.
