  1. Could not the hotel have had a “eradication/mitigation plan” in place in anticipation of the seaweed? I’m sure they have enough money to have been able to buy their own machine.

  2. It is such a shame as they have been working tirelessly to remove the daily onslaught of seaweed from the sea.
    This is a problem for the whole island not just this resort. I understand Barbados is also severely affected.
