Construction update for RM?

Postby IsItFebruaryYet » Wed Sep 14, 2022 12:30 pm

Hi there! We are looking to plan our 2nd trip for Feb 2023 and are a little concerned about the upcoming construction plans for the expansion project. Is most of the construction disruption going to be on the North End by the Old Cici’s bar or will it be more widespread? Depending on outcome we may try Pearl but would rather head back to RM….so Fun!!!

Thanks!!!

I think I've seen somewhere (someone can confirm) that construction won't start until end of April/May so if you're there in Feb it won't be an issue anyways (we're headed there in March so had the same concerns).

Watching this….we were about to book for March. May just have to do Pearl if this is happening . Can’t seem to get a straight answer from anyone.

Straight answer? It's Mexico, good luck on getting anything concrete.....pics of it starting is what I'm waiting for but it won't change anything regarding our booking.

Ah whatever…we booked for February again. Too much fun and need the getaway. Looking at a map and all the expansion talk it’s got to be on the Northside of the resort as that’s the only primitive area available to build upon. Cheers to DRM around 2!!

New lobby, new disco, new lobby bar, new spa/gym are all part of the construction plans.

Existing areas will be affected.

Curious what they do with the existing areas - are they constructing new in their place or moving these to the "new" area and constructing rooms in the existing space.

Most of the new construction is happening on the large empty lot just north of the currect buildings. Construction will take place during the day, so if you are at the pool, you won't notice much. Going down in two weeks. Let you know if we find out anything else.
