    Wow! While I have only viewed the building progress from the street side I must say in my opinion even when completed this project will impact the Riu Palace poolside setting. Thanks for posting!

    yikes, not good at all.


    this is the St Regis being built? it seems like an optical illusion...the construction being so close to the pool area.
    it must be the camera angle.
    THINK.. is it Thoughtful? Helpful? Inspirational? Necessary? Kind? sidtm

    They have really moved on it since we were there in March. I think back when we were building our home, that different stages seemed larger or smaller than it actually was. I remember thinking the house seemed very large when it was framed-kinda like the hotel is now and then once it was enclosed it seemed more realistic. The color of the steel makes it seems worse.

    Ouch is right! Wow is that awful all around. If pictures are worth a thousand words I am thinking most of those words would NOT be allowed on this site, lol.

    I would find that unbearable but I'd be on the beach instead of around the pool so maybe the impact is less. I can appreciate their frustration and disappointment but, of that "era" or not, it always pays to do some research in advance, especially if this is something you save for. Too bad but lesson learned hopefully (sorry, that sounds a bit cold). And yes, Chuck, definitely to peopley (this is my new fav word).

    Yikes I would be so mad if I spent all that money and had to deal with that. Not sure it's a good thing for anyone except the new owners of
    that new building

    Wow, that looks terrible...BUT...would you really let it RUIN your vacation? Enough to demand a full refund of a two week long stay?

    Since the RUI has another pool on their other property, they could have gone over there.
