bzinus - it sold cuz it is cheap to buy, and it is cheap to buy so he can make the capitol to build it, and the next project down the road, but you are right - i just don't care for either RV or SB's design, or what a mess the area was while they were building it. their time-share guys were (not sure now) much more forward than any others, and we got hit up time and again. JMO.
you have a valid question. one good answer is what the other guys said. plus, i read up on SB, but havn;t had the time to do so on CdelS. i did note this (not that it has anything to do with any of this):http://sanpedrosun.net/old/08-282.html
the only donation i could find from reef village was $50 of trashbags for a clean-up project, and SB gave a sponsorship donation of unknown amount (but under $40K) to the costa maya festival (hmmm, wonder if that gave them free advertising and/or exposure?). now while donations are by no means required to make a developer better than another, showing good will to help solve the infrastructure problems to come due to increased popultion are worth some respect.
i'll try to do some homework over the weekend re: costa. ok?
