Major leak on the third floor Monday night causing our unit on the first to get flooded, here’s the funny part the unit causing the problem had do not disturb on the door so they let it leak until 10 am :lol: .
We were moved to a hotel room and given all inclusive for the inconvenience.
Just kills me that they would let 2 units get destroyed because of a do not disturb sign. Guess it’s true you can’t fix stupid.

That is crazy to ignore the flood because someone has a do not disturb sign :shock:
Nice that you get AI for a while.

its amazing that after all these years they still have the leak problem. this happened last year during week 43, when we got there our friends couldn't get into their 3rd floor unit because the people who owned on the 1st floor were moved into it and they didn't want to move them again. my friends didnt mind as long as they could stay in the same unit for 2 weeks.

i don't buy that they didn't go in because of the do not distrub sign, they're just lazy. sometimes i think they do this stuff on purpose so we would "go away".

enjoy the rest of your stay!

We are now at the Riu.
So far we both have had breakfast 2X about to have lunch for the first time and we do not drink so they got off cheap.

They make virgin pina colodas, dacquiris, etc. Good thing I don't drink those fancy drinks, because I can't spell them - just like writing in the notes about the kitties diarrhea - I can never remember how to spell it :lol:

Are you in a hotel room instead of a condo? I would rather a condo over AI.
