Resort under receivership

The hotel has been a mess for years. When this last group bought it they promised to fix it up and they did not. The condo's which are now called Sunset Cove are actually very nice. That is why they changed their name so they would not be associated with the mess that is called TI. It would be a real plus for the island if the hotel was ripped down and rebuilt

Camana Bay is always such an inviting place, they certainly put a lot on emphasis on making people want to come back..

In a way this is simply history repeating itself.

When TI was in receivership before Ivan at least one developer tried to buy the place with a view to demolishing it all and re-building - even back then the only real value in the site was the land it stood on. I think that deal fell through because the official receivers just weren't being realistic about this and held out for too much money, maybe this time sense will prevail.

After Ivan it always amazes me that anyone bothered to try and re-open the place. I have friends who have lived there and a couple who are still living there - it is a mess.

In fairness to the owners it's an inherited mess because the building standards in both the resort and the condos leave a lot to be desired but the harsh reality is that to properly fix everything that's wrong with the place will cost a lot more than redeveloping it. The bottom line is the whole project was a bodge when it was first built and nothing will fix that except a wrecking ball.

If Scotiabank have got a lot of money invested in TI more fool them. It wouldn't have taken any half-decent building surveyor long to tell them they were taking a big risk.

I have to agree with Robert's comments. Other than the pool and hottub, which could use some updates - the resort itself is dated and worn out. The one time I stayed their, it was a complete dump and the rooms were in poor condition. Even if it is not torn down, hopefully a smart developer will come in and provide it with the capital necessary to renovate the structure and facilities.

One don't have to have a skull fracture to suffer life time consequences of a mild concussion.The incident must not be trivialized but thorough investigated. The organiser has wide range responsibilities that include safety, health and rights of participants,volunteers and the general public.

Not surprising, every one would try and blame the police. I truly believe that the pirates week committee should be responsible in not allowing small crafts as such to mingle with the larger vessels. It is very dangerous and it is good no one was seriously hurt.

The Treasure Island resort is an eyesore and should be torn down and redeveloped. It will never amount to anything until that happens.

If anyone has doubts about the benefits of a well-drafted Data Protection Law they should read this story - http://www.pressgazette.co.uk/six-journalists-sue-met-police-over-surveillance-and-intelligence-files-kept-domestic-extremism - and reflect on what might have happened if the UK didn't have DPA.
