Fiesta Premier Resort Construction/renovation??

Has anyone been recently to the Fiesta Premier Resort and Spa?

I am planning to book to go there late November or early December of this year (2007).

I read some reviews from early September that stated there was construction (as the resort is currently being renovated and taken over by the Hilton). Not sure when the construction is to be completed.

Anyone know/have any info?

Thanks

Hopefully it will be complete by the time you all get there. It still is a great place to hang out and get some sun! 65 degrees here in Florida today!

I expressed my concerns to the Hilton Corporation but they dont seem to concerned with my concerns. An E-mail from them yesterday said I need to contact the present owners of the resort and not them.

Anyway.......have a great time......we did!

Laing1,

My experience with Air Canada Vacations was a very negative one, but that happens, we live in Canada and it can be hard with our weather to travel during the winter season, it's very unpredictable! BUT Costa Rica is so beautifull that when you arrive there the place is beautifull, the people are soooo nice and just wing it and try and enjoy yourself!!! It's not the resorts fault that they have to renovate the place and trust me after it's done it will be so nice, not that it wasn't before! I hope you have a great trip and just go with the flow!

Does anyone know if there is a casino at this resort the Fiesta Premier website says there is but then on the Hilton website it says nothing about a casino. I am booked to arrive there on the 14th of Jan. for my freinds wedding. so hopefully all the construction is done by then.

No casino, and it should be fully operational as a Hilton property on January 15th.

Well we leave early tomorrow and will be at the Fiesta Premier Jan 3 - 17. I will give a detailed impartial review when I return.If you are new to Trip Advisor go to the top left hand empty space and type in Fiesta Premier reviews. It will take you to another page. There will be a number of reviews there but many of them are old. Click on the one that is at the top just under where it says location-then it says Prem.fiesta reviews.There you have it. Thanks to suggestions by TA we are also doing some Vargas tours and I'll let you know how they turn out.

Oh the Hilton IS taking over on the 15th.

Chances are, from a variety of reviews and comments I've seen around the web that the renovations probably won't be totally complete until sometime in March.

They seem to be doing a lot of work, and while they're remaining open, chances are that everything will be really limited. Nothing ever goes according to plans when doing renovations in my experience. :-X
