Hotel's Favorite
We typically cruise quite frequently, and with the nonsense going on we didn’t see that happening in the near future, and our 35th wedding anniversary was rapidly approaching. So, we googled top Caribbean all inclusive resorts. This resort was at the top of most lists. So, we booked a week. Since it was our anniversary, we decided to renew our vows as well. I think we read every trip advisor review from last September when we booked it, until we got on the airplane, and yes, the wine is pretty good.... But that’s not the reason I write this. This vacation was one of the highlights of our life, probably one, if not the best we have ever gone on. Why? The people this resort hire are exemplary. Our concierge Andres made it a point to make sure everything was over 100%. We consider him part of our family. Our pool concierge Antonio greeted us every morning at 7am. We consider him a friend. Our waiter Sergio made sure we had water when we walked every morning, and yes, he always brought us our favorite cocktails. Did I mention we renewed our vows? Rubí our coordinator was fantastic, Raul our minister was meaningful and touching and our photographer Orlando made a couple of people look very good. Orlando made us feel like we were the only people in the resort, and when we went by Aroma, our favorite place, Mercedes made us a banana split just for our pictures. I would be remiss not to mention Jorge, Daniel and Ciau (like meow) in Magna. Was everything perfect? Nope, but we didn’t care. Will we go back, absolutely in a heartbeat. The price value equation versus cruising doesn’t make any sense. But we will only go back if Andres is our concierge, he is that fine of a person.

Nine years later, we are finally back “home” at EPM for what was our 5th trip (8th Excellence trip). As we entered those magical doors, were greeted with a glass of bubbly, and smelled that wonderful scent, we were already asking ourselves, “What took so long?” Within minutes, we were brought to the new EC lounge to check in. My husband went and ordered us some of those famous Magnaritas (they are really good) made by the talented Job. Arriving early, we knew our room wouldn’t be ready, so we had packed our suits and made our way to get some lunch. Both the Grill and Lobster House had waits, so we went to Toscana. While the food was good (except the pizza), our lunch took almost two hours. Luckily, it was the only lunch that took so long. At 3pm, we made our way back to the EC lounge and our room was ready- 8069, EC swim up in building 8B (which is exactly what we wanted). We LOVED having the swim up. It was a hangout place every afternoon after being at the beach every morning. Erick and Antonio were our pool concierges (who created a wonderful towel art for my husband’s birthday). Sergio was our favorite pool server anticipating our next drink order and Martha is a fantastic bartender, making me my skinny margaritas (both cucumber and watermelon were my faves). As an early riser, I saw every sunrise and never had an issue getting a spot on the EC bed. As mentioned, the Bali Beds go early and while I could have had one each day, I only opted to get one our last two days as I had too much sun and needed some shade. We were well taken care of by the wonderful beach concierges: Emilio and Manuel. Drink service was frequent with a wide variety of servers over the days but most noticeably Hugo Ceasar and Armando (trainee). We were there only five nights so we ate at Agave (still one of my favorites), Basmati, Chez Isabelle, and Magna (twice). We had reserved the wine room at Chez Isabelle for my husband’s birthday and we didn’t like it as much as at ERC so wouldn’t do it again. However, the food was good. Our best meals were at Agave and Magna (the cauliflower soup is that good!). Our first time was with Angel, and he is quite a character! We were sad he wasn’t working our second night. Most nights before and/or after dinner, we would stop by the Martini Bar to witness the magic of Cesar and have a few of his speciality martini’s (try the watermelon basil). Lunches were either Grill, or Lobster House and we were well taken care of every time by Guadeloupe, Jose, and Miguel. Our favorite dishes were the ceviche, calamari, snapper, fish tacos, and eggplant app. We enjoyed every meal. We are not big breakfast people so we had room service twice and never went to any of the restaurants. Room service was good, served hot, but took 45 minutes (like they quoted). We really liked our deck so this was a treat to eat out there! We did not hit many shows but did make a point to see Claudia Trevino with her band, however, we only saw about ½ hour because the rain came in. She is a must see! The other must see is the Silent Disco! I always make a point to participate in this activity and it did not disappoint. The rain brought it into the stage area and my husband HAD to get up there! We had so much fun! My husband used the gym for a few days, and I really enjoyed the Yoga classes held at the X lounge. We took walks both ways along the beach (at least go as far as the swings) and it was amazing to see how much the area has grown! This was a short trip for us so our main goals were to enjoy the sun and relax. Our friends joined us who had never been there before and they loved it! Many times during our stay we ran into the new guest service manager Aracely Pech who we remembered from ERC. She always remembered us every time she saw us and is truly a delight! We also met the new GM Pablo while hanging out at our swim up and enjoyed conversing with him. Our only two critiques is the location of the Excellence Club lounge. We missed having it right outside the room. Normally in the morning, I like to go get cappuccinos and danish. Aroma (which is fantastic by the way) always had a long line in the morning, so I had to ride the elevator to the 3rd floor to the EC lounge to get cappuccinos and bring them back (they did not have any snacks at all). Because of the location, hardly used the lounge at all where in the past, we would stop in quite often. The old lounge is now a cigar bar and hardly anyone was in there. Move the EC lounge back to where it was and just keep Magna there! Also, we never met our building concierge. We literally saw him approach many people but never us. We heard him on the beach the last day approaching new people and telling them all he could do for them. I needed help in getting our Covid results and Manuel at the beach helped me find a different concierge who helped me. Due to Covid, there were some minor things missing but nothing worth mentioning. Overall, this was a fabulous trip and we can’t wait to go back!
