French side versus Dutch Side?

” Yet another incident in the same vein as the one reported by Kristin Petrelluzzi, this time a couple who had pre-booked a day with us at LF, were told by the taxi dispatcher at the cruise terminal that Loterie Farm was closed since Hurricane Irma. When the woman suggested otherwise, having just made the booking less than 3 weeks ago, the dispatcher told her that a taxi could take them there, but don’t be surprised to find the place closed. 

The couple is here now, in a poolside cabanita, about to do the Flyzone Extreme, and grateful that they didn’t take the advice of the dispatcher. 
I wonder how many times a day this happens? “

This is the second FB post I read about that subject in just one week, written by some well known business owners on the island. It starts to be really annoying  

Is this really how we want tourists to remember us after what the WHOLE island have been throught lately? (with some greedy people on the Dutch side who want to keep the few tourists we have?)

Don’t forget that Visitors come here to enjoy our particularity: 2 countries on the same island.
Lively on the Dutch part and laid back on the French side so we’d better promote the whole island and let the visitors have the real SXM experience!
This is what makes us unique compared to the other Caribbean islands…

The Tourism Boards from both side should really take action and do something about that. It’s not a nice image and a smart move for our island IMHO…
