Do you know how many guests were booked with them?
Think the website said they had just about 500 rooms.
I'm not who you think I am.

Fair warning - Any PMs sent in response to forum posts are fair game for ridicule in public.

Methinks you're reading it wrong. It definitely (IMHO) reads differently after the post 1988-sichos.

Back on topic here...

  Does anyone know if people have had an easy time making other plans?   And any word of how fast the money is going to be returned?

Now that Yoely Lebovits decided to go to Orlando, I would think that a bunch of families will follow. However, there's no way they have room for everyone and I'm sure the Israeli guests won't make the trek.

The relevance was to posts like

...
I myself also think that there is something distasteful IN GENERAL to this whole idea of what Pesach hotels have become. But I think it's  a problem in America in general with the chase for luxury in extreme.  And when you combine that with the idea of YomTov it can sometimes leave you with a bad taste.

...
I think the issue I have is more with our GENERAL focus of things that shouldn't be our main focus and this 'chase' for bigger, better, nicer that plagues our society at large.  This is just one example of where we see it.   So you have people looking at all the ads feeling like this is all wrong.

And others expressing similar feelings/opinions (including some of my posts on this thread).

Probably because of the lawsuit that was just filed over this (actually arbitration)

Only because of the legal happening. Cancellation isn't new.
