    I'll take us back. Will we ever know if there was an initial agreement Bahia had with Aruba that the building of their resort was dependent upon Aruba cleaning up the area. I don't remember if it was Bahia, or the other resort that was to build in that area, but one of their websites already had the Aruba location listed as "opening soon". Apparently, they don't know Aruba, and "opening soon" means something completely different.

    I was surprised that any resort company was looking at that area seeing what has become of it. I was sad to see it during my last trip. Driving through that area was like driving through a ghost town.

    Bahia Principe readies U.S. push

    By Gay Nagle Myers / September 10, 2015

    Excerpt:

    Continuing its expansion within the Caribbean, Bahia plans to establish its footprint in a new destination with the opening of the 950-suite Luxury Baby Beach Don Pablo Collection in San Nicolas on the southeastern coast of Aruba in 2017.

    Groundbreaking is set for the end of this year.

    "We're always looking for more opportunities and new markets, which is why we selected Aruba," Perez said

    Rounding out Bahia's portfolio in the Caribbean region is the 812-room Grand Bahia Principe Jamaica in Runaway Bay and the 512-room Luxury Bahia Principe Runaway Bay.

    "Mexico and the Caribbean are highly competitive markets, and these markets do not allow us to relax, which is why we are moving hard for brand and name recognition in the U.S.," Perez said.

    "There are several well-established Spanish hotel companies in this region, and while we are all friendly competitors, we are all going after the same customers in many instances, so we have to stand out from the others in terms of service, standards, amenities, culinary offerings and facilities," he said.

    While Bahia has a lot on its plate in the next two years, Perez said other projects are in the works for 2018, although he did not elaborate. The years ahead could see possible new destinations such as Costa Rica and Panama and further expansion within Mexico and the Caribbean.

    Everything is changing. I wished Baby Beach and the area would have left to it's natural beauty. JMO.

    My understanding was that the locals were pretty upset about it, as it was one of the few places left on the island where they could all congregate on the weekends. When we were there in March the owner of the Rum Reef said it was definately coming. I'm sue he will do well with his expansion.
    We too enjoyed the a serenity. Like you said, it's all changing.

    I feel for the locals as well. More and more of their natural beaches are disappearing, like the beach where now the Ritz is. And now Baby Beach and Roger's Beach as well. Makes me sad.

    But if this resort is really being build there, I also see some dangers: Baby Beach is not as safe as it used to be with the wall of the reef being partially destroyed by Mother Nature. IMO, warning signs will not be enough, the area looks beautiful and tempting, the danger of undercurrent can be easily underestimated. IMO, it would be wise to take precaution right away and restore this protective reef/wall.

    Roger's Beach looks as well inviting. However, the current is strong if someone swims out a bit too far. Looking at the Aruba map, the ocean on the south side is very different like from the north side. The water will be deep and the current strong.
