    Can anyone post some pictures? What work are they doing in the pool area?

    I hope they are not simply refurbing the small in ground hottub they covered with the deck when Couples took over from GL San Souci.
    That was a tiny two person hot tub. Hopefully, they are building a large conversation spa similar to other resorts.

    Found the following management comment on Trip Advisor.

    Would seem pool renovation at SSB coming next at SSB!

    "We have been engaged with a number of improvement efforts - a new Jacuzzi at SSB, new tiles for the Balloon Bar and Spa Terraces, a total renovation of Rolly's Salon, pool renovations at the Balloon Bar and SSB, as well as renovation of the Spa Gazebos and Bella Vista Restaurant."

    Yes, supposedly they are removing the waterfall grotto and making the pool all one depth. No shallow end anymore. I think it will really help with the crowds that have been building over at SSB the past few years.

    Everyone needs to quit telling people how wonderful SSB is and how nice the people are. <----- JUST KIDDING!

    I can't see the picture when clicking on the link. So from what I understand, they didn't make the shallow end of the pool into the jacuzzi??

    We should be finished the installation within the next 10 days and there is no disruption to the pool or grill service at all.
    The answer to when it should be completed was addressed earlier in this thread.

    The new hot tub looks very promising. It might be larger than the "pool" at Tower Island.

    So, all if these renovations are taking place now? I know Randymon said that the new SSB hot tub will be completed soon, what about the SSB pool renovation? I would think that renovation would be more involved and take longer.....any ideas??? We will be at CSS over Christmas....

    Perfect -- looks just like CN's AN hot tub !! I've been putting this on our comment card for years. So glad they're finally doing this !!

    And, it's much nicer/bigger than the old in-ground hot tub from the GLSS days !! Speaking of.......I showed Lovell a picture of that old GLSS hottub when I was there last month & he barely remembered it (until I showed him the picture) !!

    thanks for posting the pics, Karen !!

    Can anyone post pictures of how the construction site looks from the outside? Maybe a shot across the pool towards the grill area.

    Thanks!

    I think that bar is actually for the pole dancing pool they are going to be putting in the hut tub!
