    My trip 10/2

    Arrived on Friday, airport was a breeze in and out in about 15 mins.
    surf club is at about 75 percent capacity beach is crowded and not as empty as past post suggested

    most people are wearing masks but some are not, very annoying. It’s hard to have a relaxing time when there are people who just don’t listen

    wow, 75% seems high especially considering the time of year. Are they still asking people not to share elevators unless it is your own family? How is that working?

    thank you for taking the time to write.

    many other places are praying for 75% capacity.
    LaCabana and lots of Eagle Beach places are very quiet.
    the NY quarantine has cause more people to cancel/postpone their trips.

    enjoy and "mask up"

    One person per elevator unless part of the same family. Staff are pressing the elevator buttons and cleaning constantly. The staff are masked up all day, it’s the quests that can’t seem to follow directions

    Wow, LaCabana wasn't even that full. (I think I over heard a person saying it was only 25-30%)

    For those of you that are unfamiliar with the "Marriott Campus"
    Here is a Map.
    The southern most property marked with the S is Surf Club area and beach, just north of that is the Ocean Club and their beach area, north of the Ocean Club is the Marriott Hotel and their beach area, and with the R is the Ritz and the beach area for the Ritz.

    Is the Ritz full? Why would there be so many people on their beach there, are they locals? How full are the rest of the Marriott properties?

    I am to see a trip report! I am surprised it is so full. I wonder if it is a conference/convention.
