At least half the building are finished with exterior renovations.. They have one building scheduled for this summer/fall. It's one of the buildings that face Red Bay/St John, either D or E, I can't recall. Pool and Beach Bar are still closed. The Dive Shop reopened last year but last I know of they only rent snorkel gear, toys and chairs. As far as I've heard they have not yet gotten back into providing any dive excursions.

If I recall correctly Off the Grid went to a limited weekend schedule last year instead of shuttering completely as they did previously. What they have planned for this year will be anyone's guess.

All pools are open. It's the pool bar at the beach that is closed. During my last visit the lower level of the pool at Sapphire Beach Resort & Marina was roped off but the upper level was open and in good repair. Sapphire Village's two pools are open and were both extensively refurbished within the last 20 months. Sapphire Bay Condos West/Crystal Cove's salt water pool is also open.

Off the Grid is on Facebook. Best to check there for their schedule, because it's subject to change.

Building E will be under construction from June 1 through Oct 15, 2015.

The dive shop is open.

The pool bar is still closed, but the pool is open.

The E building is on the adjacent beach and will be closed during that time period.

That beach is rocky and not a swimming beach so the renovation will not effect the main beach and there will not be construction noise or any inconvenience for other guest

The pools are for guests of their particular resort. The Village, Crystal Cove and Sapphire Beach Resort are separate entities. So as a guset you may only use the pool at your complex. If the resort has multiple pools you may use them but only the pools at that resort.
