As someone who has stalked this site since my first trip to EPM and have rarely participated I thought I would share a live from post now that I have arrived last night for my third visit. I love reading when others post so I figured why not give it a try. I also thought that this may be a good outlest as this time I have brought my parents who have never been anywhere and I am gussing there may be a few stories related to that I just might have to share. I first must warn everyone that I am doing this on a tablet I am not familiar with so this may be one big continuous paragraph so I apologize in advance. We flew Westjet and used the transportation provided by them. As in all trips we went straight to Exellence without any other stops arriving within 25 minutes. I will say that this is the first time we had others coming from Ottawa going to the hotel with us. This couple is on their 5th trip here so staying consistent with the theme of a high number of return guests. We arrived around 5:30 and we were hungry so we freshened up and headed to the Mexican restaurant as is tradition for our first night. I am terrible with names so I forget the name of our waiter but he was fabulous. He went to another bar to get my dad some bud light as he is not very open minded to mexican beers. He also brought me spicy salsa when I mentioned I like hot salsa and told me where I can purchase it when I asked him. He also managed to secure me some churros after advising that they had run out. As it was about 6:30 we were practically the only ones there. As it was travel day we did not stay out too late. We enjoyed some music at Cafe kafe and then headed in for the night. Some initial observations from our first night. The resort seems busier than I have ever seen it and there seems to be a large number of groups who seemed to be indulging and having a good time. We will see if there are any impacts during the daylight hours when we head to the beach or the pool. I almost forgot to mention that when we arrived we were given an upgrade to a swimout room for being return guests which was not expected or necessary. I didnt want it at first as I prefer to be on a higher floor however my hubby was thrilled as it is the only room type we have not stayed in. As I am currently sitting on the patio sipping my coffee I think I will in fact enjoy it. Thata it for now....I must go collect my parents soon before they get lost. I will try to post throughout the week and I hope everyone enjoys the updates.
