Having your vacation blown away really sucks.
You grind all year just so you can lay back on a beach lounger and recuperate with an intravenous concoction of Mud Slides and Mind Erasers
Then along comes Fiona.
Fortunately, Hurricane Fiona only inflicted minor bumps and bruises on the All-Inclusive Resorts in the Dominican Republic.
Unfortunately Cap Cana, one of our favorite areas in the DR, took it in the face and was dinged pretty good.
News from Playa Resorts (who markets properties for Hyatt, Hilton and The Sanctuary Cap Cana) is that they have 3 resorts that need a little more than just the pool swept.
The Hyatt’s and Sanctuary had no structural damage, but guests we spoke with said the rain blew sideways into the upper floors and so everything was soaked. And they lost a number of the swaying palm trees they had on the beach. So clean up is the order of the day.

We would much rather be writing about the warm sun, soft sand and the all inclusive fun you should be having right now.
But from September to November we have to write about what Granny Nature gives us – so you can get your refund or rebook.
Sorry to bring you good news wrapped in bad news, but Playa is a great company and they work hard to do what is right.
Writing this is depressing me so I think I will go grab a drink and share in your angst.
See ya in the morning….
