    over the past 15+ years, it seems like there have been a few divi dutch renovation announcements.
    seems to me though, that it has been just a spruce up here and there.
    have there been full renovations with new baths and kitchens and furniture in the past 15 yrs?

    The updated kitchen & the fact that there will be a lobby makes me reconsider staying there again. The rooms were HUGE!

    everywhere and anywhere
    Since there are part of the divi family I would assume they would do the same as the divi village, villas and golf villas did.
    The company increased our maintenance fees for a 2 year period and fully remodeled the rooms, including new kitchen (although those new square sinks are awful), but boy could they use electric stoves, I hate the gas ones !! Never seem to be able to turn them on without fear of blowing the place up (mom had gas and I never remember having issues)..tore out bathtubs in lieu of showers that don't clog (yay) furniture (cheaper)...but overall a pretty decent do.....
    the dutch rooms are pretty large as Jacki mentioned so an update would really brighten up the place !!!
