Villa Amanecer

Does anyone know the status. I've read a few threads from a few months ago that talked about it going condo.Can anyone confirm this. The hotel has e-mailed us to say they have openings in March/07
Just trying to play it safe with deposits etc.
Thanks
John and Ilona

I contacted them through this website for May 2007 and they stated that they had been sold and cannot make reservations for May 2007. Other than that I don't know what's up...

It was still a hotel 2 weeks ago when I stayed there. It's a great place to stay!

Cinker,

I read your trip report and that that is what made me contact Villa Amanecer for my May 2007 vacation. Unfortunately they could not make any reservations for that timeframe

The girl at the front desk told me April but did not seem to be sure. It's a shame they are going to make condos. It is a nice place to stay.

I agree...it's a great place to stay! Close to everything on the north side AND has a pool!

I agree that it is a great place to stay. We were there last February and the hotel had been sold. At that point they were predicting that it was going to close in April (although I do have to admit they didn't say which year ) to turn the building into condos - apparently that didn't happen as scheduled!

Villa Amanacer is listed on the Playa.info trip planning tab - maybe they know what is going on - I would try PM'ing Heather to see if she knows anything.

If they are going condo I wonder what the units will cost. I would imagine it would take some extensive work to turn their units into apartments with full kitchens.

Last year we had booked with them for Peep-fest. (Late Feb-March) A friend later tried booking there for the same time and they told her that they had been sold and were going to convert to condos. After several unanswered e-mails we rebooked with another hotel. When they finally answered us they said they where going to let us stay there for one week then move us to another hotel. We said no thanks and they returned our deposit. Sounds like they have decided to go ahead with the condo project.
We had stayed there before and really liked the place. Our concerns were if the staff would stay till the last week and the quality of the hotel they were going to move us too. Plus we didn't want to have to pack everything up and move in the middle of our trip.
