Reportedly, work is resuming on the casino at the Sosua Bay Hotel and, at this time, is expected to be completed in 5 months. We'll see with respect to the completion date, but the important thing is that the building is to be completed.

tambo, work just resuming. Walked by just now and saw men working and a front end loaded cleaning piles of debris out of the lower level.

Several engineers rented apartments today and said they were here to oversee the completion of the casino.

this is great news. when i got married there three years ago, my family wasn't too impressed with that eyesore in front of our hotel. we stayed there three years in a row, getting married during the third one. we want to go back for our 5th anniversary and any sign of progress at this point is a good sign. they might be completed by our fifth anniversary. could somebody post a occasional pic.
thanks sosuajames

You mean like it used to be?;) I used to enjoy walking through that park under the branches of the big, old trees. No birds chirping away even then, however.

Two engineers from Santo Domingo supervising the work are staying in El Neptuno. They recently rescheduled their departure to February 15, meaning the previously anticipated opening by Christmas is unlikely.

Thanks Ken & Rocky.........I saw it was not even close to completion, I did recently read they have a few tables open and a small gambling room open. Is this another tale?

In Sosua Bay hotel or on the Strauss Property on La Puntilla?

tambo' make funny
Neither, though it is on hotel property. It is close to the steps that go down to the street that ends up at the beach. It is in a one story building that has a "Casino" sign on the front.
