    well it now seems that the additional 600 rooms WILNOT be built… clearly there are serious issues with the business model… UWI is left holding the end of the stick with u know what on it… it gave away its lodge and got nothing in return to show… how could then not see the trick… take away what u have before and then be guaranteed a market.. wasalways the plan but it seems they have outpriced themselves of the market… smfh
