    Most hotels that are managed by Locals with the exception of Maria by the Sea Failed. I am not saying that we do not have educated locals capable of running successful business what I know is that when they are placed in managerial positions based solely on the fact that they earned the post because they are locals it could only end in failure.

      @Truth, that is a bunch of Bull and you know it. Most of the hotels and Inns are owned and run by locals and doing well before the hurricanes. Where did you get your non information from?
