I'm delighted to hear that David, Asma et. al. have survived the storm. My wife and I have reservations at the Green Parrot for February and while we have been tempted to scrap our plans and to look eleswhere, we have a strong fondness for Placencia and are cautiously optimistic that the resort will be rebuilt and that life on the penninsula will have returned to normal by then.

Good News from David and Asma of the Green Parrot Resort in Placencia:

Here is what is going on:
1) the damage was mostly on the south side of the property, from the
restaurant to the small cabanas. The large house cabanas suffered less
damage and the crew is currently giving them a face left, which should be
completed before Thanksgiving of this year.
Our apartment was spared, just some water damage that will be cleaned up in
no time.
However, now we have a small, but very cute restaurant set up till we have
the new and improved restaurant ready, which we hope to open By late
December or early January.
The work is being done in three phases; first get the house cabana and
surroundings done and back in good shape by Thanksgiving or sooner. Second
phase is the restaurant, kitchen and offices. Parts will be cleaned up and
repaired, other parts will be constructed new.
Last phase is the south side of the property, which will be all new and we
hope to have that done by early next year.
Aside from that, we hope to have power soon so that I can work our e-mail
daily vs. weekly and be able to get back with people in a timely manner, we
hope to have power by next week.
We are both doing well, working very hard and looking forward to having life
back in order soon.

We stayed @ Green Parrot, Maya Beach, Placencia on our very first visit to Belize. We spent the best week of our lives(vacation-wise)and have been wondering of their plight as well. Thank goodness it is being saved and will be up and running again. We were there when Ray and Colleen still owned it, and I am sure it hasn't changed just because the owners have. Good Wishes to the Allardices.
