Walking from the main pool area toward the new beach bar:

New beach bar standing on the beach, looking toward the Catalina Bldg.:

Ocean Grill - old wooden railing & spindles have been replaced; new granite countertop; salad bar has been moved and one exit removed:

At lunch, they have stations where you can have wraps prepared and grilled fresh; hamburgers, hot dogs, fresh fish; a nacho station and salad station.

They also allow men to wear dress shorts in the Ocean Grill at night now as they have removed the ceiling fans and installed new lighting.

Looks great, we are looking forward to returning April 11th, the count down is on.

New Beach bar/Ocean Grill looks fabulous! This outside patio was one of my favourite places to sit in the mornings & watch the water and the beach!!

I can’t wait!

Thanks for the pics Don y Olivia,
Does Jacqui work at the new bar?

No - Jacqueline is still days at the Tiki Bar. She is going on vacation on the 25th (I think) for about 3 weeks… Others are on vacation now - Enrique (wine steward in the buffet) and Maria (hostess - nights at Ocean Grill). Enrique & Maria were given 2 days notice they were going on vacation.

Apparently tourism is down and they are giving (?) employees vacations now… not their usual time off.

Hope she’s back by mar.15
wouldn’t be the same not seeing her.
