I will appreciate information anyone provides about the state of construction on the Sotavento.
We arrive soon to stay at the Catalina and are hoping the major excavation noise has ended.
Of course, with the Sotavento you never know.

It's LOUD, starts about 7:30 am and goes 6 days a week.

We are in the room nearest Sotavento. Unless you need to sleep during the day, it is tolerable.

We aren't hearing any heavy equipment, just a lot of hammers and power saws.

Thanks, folks.
Guess we'll bring ear plugs.
Do you think anyone will ever buy one of their condos?

Unless things change, i’d say you don’t need earplugs. I am norhbay’s wife. We stay right next to Sotavento. Our side window looks into the old Sotavento dining room. Right now, I hear a hammer. Bulldozers last Feb./ March were much more annoying. Just enjoy.

Right now the noisiest spot is next to the road. They have been jackhammering/sawing for 3 weeks now. We had to listen to sawing/jackhammering for weeks when they constructed the wall next to the road last time the Sotavento was being remodelled. Now they are creating the same amount of noise dismantling that same wall. Go figure.

We recently walked up to the road during the day and I will agree that the noise on the Sotavento road frontage was pretty loud and annoying. Lots of stone cutting and saws. Much more headache producing than the work they are currently doing on the beach. These things can change from day to day but I am sure it’s currently difficult for those on the road or up the hill.
