WILLEMSTAD - There is movement finally. The first piles for the construction of the Courtyard Marriott Hotel on Rif are bursting into the ground and finally the construction of the highly anticipated resort has started. This was confirmed by the Minister of Economic Development, Giselle Mc William.
The minister explains that the project has been somewhat delayed because it was discovered at the start of the construction last year that Aqualectra’s cables were underground. When these were removed by the utility company, it turned out to be a bigger job than expected.
“The planned opening in August 2021 is probably also somewhat delayed,” said the minister.
