Oh I didn't know they were putting in a new beach bar. Are they just making it bigger? Well, I will be there next month, so I will let you know.

just returned the beach bar is up and running, no stools at this time.
they are not sure if they will have them, but the bar is much larger, with more counter space, which can be a problem if people are scattered around the bar, they alway's have 2 bartender's on duty, but they may add a 3rd, lot's of room for the bartenders to cover...

Thanks Ricky59. At times 2 bartender's weren't enough with the little bar. Well, I can't wait to see it! Oh, do you know if Angelia is back this year? Has anyone left the Occidental? I hope not, I miss them all. Well this time in two weeks we will be in the air on the way to this beautiful island!! I'll be able to see this bar soon!! Woooohoooo!!!!

Thanks again ricky59--we will have to go see Freddie, so sorry he is gone. Yes we LOVE the Occidental and can't wait to get back. Saturday the 21st can't come soon enough. I miss my "family" I am jealous that you get to go so often. Do you have a timeshare? Royal club??
Enjoy your next trip.
