    We are at Divi Pheonix right now. Power went off for maybe a minute and came back, we found out the island was out when Pinchos called to cancel our reservations due to no power. We headed out for dinner and most hotels were running on generator. Headed to Daniels Chophouse, they had generator to the Gianani group restaurants but long waits so we headed to Windows figuring hotels had generators. The restaurant was working but many rooms there were not. And we just reurned and tried to get gas by wacky wahoo (they were on generator) but everything around the area was still black. So were the new apts between the low and high rise. So right now there are still many areas without, but mostly locals it seems.

    Cindy obviously worked all the kinks out because the meal, service and ambiance are INCREDIBLE!

    sometimes there is never a disclosure as to why the outage.

    the one we had in May, was caused by a car wreck up near Tierra Del Sol
