The bathrooms were still closed when we were there in Feb. They've also built bathrooms by Barefoot on Surfside, but I'm not sure that they've opened those yet either. I wonder what the hold up is.
No downside. We have a dear friend w crohns and it is imperative to have rest rooms.Love it. My BIL has Crohns disease and had his large intestine removed several years ago. When we go to the beach away from the resort he must have facilities. Last year my BIL would not go to Arashi or Eagle because there were no facilities. He wasn't going to go to Casabiri rocks until I told him they had lots of bathrooms for visitors. I am sure there are many people in a similar situation. I cant see a downside to having restrooms at beaches and attractions as long as they take care of them.
They have built similar facilities on Arashi Beach, but open never opened
Agreed, and as a cruiser with no major health issues, there have been many times when we've been on a beach and I have sneaked into a hotel bathroom because we couldn't find a public one. I've always sympathized with the cruisers who spend a good portion of the day walking up and down the beach, looking for some chairs and some shade. I just hope that the vendors don't stick their umbrellas in front of my palapa like they do on Palm Beach.
Great idea. I stood at MVC Eagle Beach in November (next to chalet suiise). Whenever I needed to use the bathroom, I would cross the street because MVC has a bathroom at the entrance. However, on 2 occasions it was locked which were days when the beach had a lot of cruise visitors. I went up to the bar and they gave me the key. Some of those cruisers ended up buying lunch at Tullips probably so they can use the bathroom.
This is a good idea. As was previously mentioned, the selfish side of me did come out however. The first thing I did was check where this is in relation to where my wife and I usually set up camp. 5 minutes walk. Close enough to use, but far enough to not be a hindrance.
