Oh thanks! We're heading to BCV in October. Like others I've enjoyed the solarium, but the Breezeway in the villa building is also fine for resting while waiting for ME, or for the room to be ready. There's also that other room, as you enter the villa building near Ariel, the room on the right. What's the name of that room?

Got the scoop!

Health club relocated to solarium over night. Health club being refurbed. Will move back 11/16.

HH has moved to poolside gifts. NEW hot dog takeout place going in over near health club by YC entrance to pool.

B & C not expanding.

Will keep snooping ...

OH THANK GOODNESS! This was really bothering me. I love the Solarium for sitting and relaxing. That would have been an awful long term location for the fitness area!

And for the record...would love to see B & C expand. Every time we try to get in we can't. It is always packed!

DH says they'd better hurry up! We want the Solarium back, and DH and I will be there the last week in October. And like Bobbiwoz, we too were thinking about the movies on the beach in inclement weather.

Back to normal then by the time we're there in Feb.

I just hope that during the remodel they upgrade the water heaters that supply the showers! Last time I was there I got a cold shower. Brrrrrrrrrr!!

There was a restaurant staff member setting up something in the arcade, so I tackled him and made him answer my questions

A quarter of the arcade is emptied out. They are setting up an additional QS place to handle overflow (like the ballroom setup at CR since Contemo Cafe is closed).

He said there has been discussion about expanding B & C, but they aren't going to do anything while HH is in temp location and new place is under construction. I got the sense nothing had been decided.

No one seems to know where the movies will be shown.

Periwigs is also closed for refurb.

uh oh! not good! For the first time ever, we decided to take a late flight out of here this Friday, because we knew we could shower and freshen up at the fitness center showers. wouldn't ya know it.

Especially considering the rainy evenings for the next couple of nights, I sure hope they find a spot for the movies they used to show in the solarium. we were actually looking forward to it. What a bummer.

Contempo Cafe is closed too??? Does anyone have dates on this? We are doing a split stay at BCV & BLT in October. We always eat breakfast in the solarium at BCV and at Contempo when at BLT. This is a bummer! I am relived to hear that the solarium will reopen. That is such a peaceful place to relax.

So HH is in Poolside Gifts temporarily? Are they just serving drinks or food or both? Can't imagine they relocated the fitness center to the solarium even temporarily. What about showers, locker rooms and massage rooms? Oh well, I'm sure we'll still have a good time when we're there in October.

I hope they still have poolside service of drinks in October! And a beverage station for the kids! This'll make the waits at B&C even longer!

You probably can go to BW and shower!

We were there last week and all of these changes are temporary. You can still get poolside drinks from Bar next to Cape May Cafe. Hot dog stand is a table with a BBQ. We were there from 8/18-8/26 and they tested it (the hot dog table)out one day with FREE hotdogs for any guests wanting them.... By early next year all changes should be complete and solarium should be back to normal!
