  1. Sandals wants to purchased Jolly Beach,says Gaston Browne. Here is an idea. Throw him in as a part of the deal. Sell his arse and get him out of Antigua and Barbuda.

    • @fed up well said!!!
      LOL you gotta keep up!
      What was ‘certain’ 24-hrs ago is no more.
      Guessing the $$$ are advantageous, not necessarily for Treasury

  2. The local contractors are not getting paid. Not talking about Serían cool and Some , Louis Family or Black Had. I am talking about indigenous Antiguan business men and women for goods and services. This administration has destroyed several small and middle size businesses that do business with the government.

  3. How many prospects and buyers does it take to get one hotel reopened. Gaston just love over do.
    Most people are ok with 1 or 2 failures, but Gaston had to go for 26? AWDHYT?

  4. Mani_Wata & Papa_Elegba son, CHRISTened Jumbee_Picknee says,

    Cut the bullshit, and serving it to the Nation like #Boh_Boy rice pudding! Everyday it’s a different scenario with Jolly Beach. If, there is so much confidence in the Tourism Department, its about time, that they design, build, manage and maintain a five star resort like Jolly Beach. Just don’t see about it, be about it.


  5. How sad they can’t get their act together and get Jolly Beach open. Antigua doesn’t need another 5 star resort like Sandals, but instead a family oriented resort at reasonable prices. I have been going to Jolly Beach Resort for 26 years and it is very disappointing that we will not be able to return this year. I’ve checked the other resorts on the island and the 4-5 star resorts are very expensive. This year I rented a villa in Jolly Harbour close to Jolly Beach so I hope this will be a nice experience and something I will continue to do in the future. Please rethink the future of Jolly Beach and make it affordable for everyone to be able to enjoy that beautiful beach!!

  6. Don’t sell to sandals…there is no need for another 5 star hotel….jolly beach needs to be developed and run properly….stayed there 3 years ago…lovely place and staff…..leave it as 3/4 star and let the crowds come.

    Best wishes to all the x staff members….u are a credit.
