After learning the new Dominican property was to be built near a town called Miches, I went to Google maps to check it out a bit. I really like the feature where you can drop the little person icon on the street and get the feel for a new area. Just something I like to do because it lets a person see a bit of the world they haven't been before. When I attempted to do that in Miches, I learned Google has apparently not mapped much of it yet. There are very few points that allow you the 3-D view, other than a sleepy beach hotel called the Coco-Loco Beach club. What was interesting in a deserted place next door, and then to my surprise, a property listed as the future Desire Resort popped up!. They're already identified on Google Maps! Trip Advisor has quite a few pics of the Coco Loco Beach club and some reviews, along with some beach pics. As for the abandoned resort next door, at first I thought it was under construction, but after looking closer, there are no work vehicles, and the grass has grown back in around all the buildings. Only one of the buildings has a roof, and most have green brush / trees showing inside. Clearly it has been abandoned for some time. The entrance to the property showed similar conditions with a building there. The only work on-site appears to be a bulldozer and a truck dumping sand / debris at the north end of the property. This is immediately next to the Desire property. Does anyone suppose the new resort might be a rehab of this existing abandoned / unfinished property? Either way, I think the sleepy Coco Loco Beach CLub might be in for a bit of a shock with the new neighbors. I have included several pics to show the Desire property and location. NOTE... I have attempted to paste the photos into this thread, but they are not appearing. If anyone knows how to do this, please let me know. They show up when I did the original thread layout, but not when posted. Perhaps they need to be approved by Admin?
