JoeW and DonnaLee just posted reports.

Thank you.


PS JoeW sorry to read about your wife's ankle and I share your frustration. We all know the key phrases in this day and age are DENY, DENY, DENY or DEFLECT, DEFLECT, DEFLECT and that will make the problem go away they think.

Wow - a compliment from AJ. Should I frame it? Thanks. I was actually thinking of exactly you - when I warned that it could be long and boring. :D

Enjoyed reading both reports - seemed like ages since the last one. Also enjoyed the pictures Donna Lee posted.

Thanks!

Loved the trip reports and the pictures. Donna- you have a very good looking family and JoeW- sorry to hear about your wife's injury and the non-compassionate response from the management. Hope she is feeling better.

Joe, sorry also for your wife's injury. One evening apprx. 5-6 years ago my wife tripped and fell on the steps at Playa Linda leading from the pool area to the beach walkway while we were leaving for the evening to dinner, then on. She bruised her ankle and somewhat sprained her ankle. She reported and suggested marker tape or material be placed at the leading edge of steps as the lighting was very dim and difficult to discern the steps. Several days later the risk manager contacted her and that was when she made
the recommendation. Our subsequent visits to PL showed nothing ever done and we continued to bring up the issue at member's meeting and with management!

Stories like these just go to show why it's good to drink. Seems there is never a story that involves a drunk person getting hurt. Its always the people around or with them.

So PL owners do not walk the PL property if you haven't been drinking.

I beg to differ... or at least my husband does. Back around 2008, we went on the Kuku bus. I went to use the restroom while at dinner. I had no problem seeing the small step up into the bathroom stall, but I totally forgot about it coming out. Luckily, it was only a sprained foot, but hubby got to push me around the resort in a wheel chair for the rest of the week. I maintain that it had nothing to do w/ alcohol, but hubby tells a different tale. :lol: :wink:
