AVOID CAP JULUCA

DON'T GO THERE. It is a construction site, contrary to what management will tell you. I have been to this island 20 times and am shocked that guests would be here now. There is no pool, construction trucks running up and down the beach from 7-7, rooms incomplete with guests in them and worst of all...management that is arrogant and unresponsive to the situation. I have stayed at this resort 7 other times and am saddened and shocked to see it now. I GOT HERE THIS AFTERNOON AND AM TRYING DESPERATELY TO FIND ANOTHER PLACE TO STAY. AVOID coming here for the foreseeable future. It is a mess. If you have reservations, don't believe what they tell you. I made that mistake. Hopefully, I can help you avoid what I have been through today.

Chris We just got back from Cap Juluca. Why are you shocked-they were up front about the construction, the summer rates are great plus the 25% dicount. We had no problem. The beach was great, the service at Pimms and the entire hotel was wonderful. I have been there 8 times, who uses the pool anyway!!!!

Good point Penny- We have also stayed at Cap 7 times and never saw a soul in the pool! We ARE curious as to what exactly is going on at Cap- we are due to go in late January. What ecactly is the deal?

We left the Sunday before Thanksgiving,based on what we saw the pool and Georges should be open,everything should be completed. We enjoyed our stay and plan to go back in March.

Unfortunately when any resort has a "soft opening," such as Cap is experiencing now, it is a time for "final prep" for the real thing. (Been there, done that other places and it is trying at times!) I know that the rates, which by the time I saw them, were terrific but they were booked thru December! It was unrealistic to expect that everything be perfect - but wouldn't it be wonderful if it were!! Hope the poster finds another spot if that's what is wanted and it works out. Maybe I will run into Chris at CuisinArt tomorrow! (I can hardly wait!!!)

I thought cj was great! They were upfront about the const. and detected no arrogance. Guess you can't please everyone. By the way, when it is complete(very soon) it will be much better than it was.( and that's saying something)

I would not call a memo that stated "final landscaping" as the extend of the work being done at Cap Juluca as fair warning for it's current situation. The pool and George's was suppose to be open 12/1...and we all know that was impossible. Backhoes on the beach...acceptable? I think not. It is interesting what some people are willing to accept for a perceived "BARGAIN" price. When I was there 4 couples left for other resorts. Obviously they experienced more than minor "soft opening" problems. I wonder what other thought of the electric cables exposed in the sand by the waters edge? Guess that isn't a concern either to some.

Chris I am sorry you had a bad experience. Again this was our 8th time to the hotel. I just read an excellent report on the Anquilla home page from a quest who just left, who had also been there 3 times before and had a wonderful time. You cannot please everyone!
