This is great news for many reasons, not the least of which is that it shows there is growing confidence in the status of the recovery in Saint Martin. Sure, things aren’t perfect yet but it’s certainly getting better. We posted an aerial drone video of Grand Case earlier today and an article from SXM Angie about the inside view on the island. Two posts that really help show what’s going on in SXM.

Diamond Resorts update

As much as the locals have been doing to clean up after Irma, it doesn’t change the reality that the big hotels on the island sustained a lot of damage from the storm. And now, the latest update is more bad news.

With nearly all of the big hotels on the island looking like they’ll be closed through most of 2018, the hotel room inventory will continue to be vastly reduced throughout the following year. There’s still no word from some of the resorts, like the Westin.

I fell in love with the island of Saint Martin the first time I visited to celebrate my 40th birthday in May of 2009. Since then, I've spent most birthdays there, and have visited countless other times getting to know this wonderful place and the friendly locals that make it so special. I adore the culture, the people, the community, and the beauty of this stunning island. SXM Strong is a website that I started to support humanitarian relief efforts following Hurricane Irma. There was no plan, it just evolved as I witnessed the devastation that Irma caused the island and the huge need to communicate and disseminate information about what had happened and how people could help support this island and its people.
