I was just wondering if all the rooms have now been updated and the public area work finished
When I was there in April they were adding on new rooms and some ocean view rooms completed. The older rooms looked like were not updated, although still very nice with each room having its own personality vs the new ocean view cookie cutter rooms. So you have both options to choose. Yes there is some construction under way but they are quiet and respectful. Due to heavy rains and being set in a jungle, there seems with every business a need for daily upkeep. Dont let that sway you, its a beautiful hotel and amazing experience
When I was there (in May) no, but I would definitely confirm with them that construction has been completed before booking. As for the rooms, they hadn't even begun construction on my room, so I suggest you get a confirmation from the hotel themselves, in writing that it is complete.
