  1. I thought Apple Vacations were a Travel Vacation Agency. Now they are going to Manage Jolly Beach. Something smells real fishy,must be the sea. LOL

    • I was thinking the same thing. Apple is a tour operator. Selling hotel rooms is not like selling hot bread. Just the way Gaston talk you can hear there is no real management plan. The hotel is going to be ready and rooms sold all within 60 days? Who will manage the hotel? Will this be a profitable venture or another way to rip off the government. This really sounds like next level BS.

  2. Spruce up Jolly Beach Hotel, is the Prime Minister joking…
    My family came for a visit before the pandemic and were very disappointed with the place. It was run down 3yrs ago and needed serious work.
    Spruce up? Just another half assed fix up by the government. If they spruce up the way they did Halcyon Cove years ago, you can guarantee the guest will not be returning.
    I wonder, when they say government owned after they destroy companies with taxes and BS, does GB and friends add it to there personal real estate portfolio?
    Guess we Antiguans will never know.
    What we do know for sure is that we cannot trust anyone in the Antiguan government right now. That includes the attorneys who do there dirty work.

    I am convinced there is a private UWI where all these politicians and attorneys go to learn how to be corrupt.
    Delay, delay, delay year after year. Attorneys make money, government gets money from taxes that mount, all there friends and family benefit until there is nothing left for employees.

  3. Bertaboi. I have done my investigation it is not the union. The union have made a report to the Police an investigation commence statement was recorded the Police was stop members to include some senior members of staff are implicated in Fraud asked the General of Attorney ask the board of Chairman bring it to light

  4. Give me a break, 60 days, no way, as if. The resort will need water, electricity, healthy sanitization, groundwork, massive repairs, pool overhaul, etc. AND EMPLOYEES!

    Saying it will be up and running in 60 days is outrageous. Even in high output countries where supplies are readily available 60 days would be unreasonable and unreachable. Does the PM have any advisors or is he completely rogue?

    If JHR is up and running in 60 days I will stop complaining about the poor internet in AG. Neither of these things will happen.
