I write this review quite a bit late and I apologize to the EDSS staff b/c I could not possibly say anything negative about this resort. I completely agree with the previous reviewer - how could anyone find their experience at this hotel negative?
This was the first time my g/f and I did an all inclusive trip.
Check in was amazing. The obligatory glass of champagne set a great tone for the stay. The grounds are incredibly beautiful. So beautiful, in fact, that my g/f had tears in her eyes during the golf cart ride to our room.
Our room was absolutely perfect. I highly HIGHLY recommend one of the swim up suites. I would prefer that to an ocean view room. The lazy river was great to wake up to every morning when all I had to do was open the sliding door and step into the water. And then when the mood hit I'd drift down to the swim up bar, which was a great place to meet other couples.
One thing I can never understand is when a review says the staff were unfriendly! How is that possible? Every single employee we met was incredibly pleasant and polite. I feel you must be a miserable person if you have a problem with the staff.
The food is difficult to comment on. I believe if you like gourmet food you will be pleased. I'm not the biggest fan of gourmet food but I did not have a problem with any of the restaurants. I'm more of a buffet guy and by no means a food expert.
I may be in the minority here, but I loved the beach. We never attempted to get a beach bed in the morning but were able to find them later in the day. I think the whole reserving a beach bed at 6am and not using it until the afternoon [--]. I think it's incredibly inconsiderate.
The water was beautiful and warm. I like how the beach is part of a little cove type area where the water is calm and very warm.
The whole atmosphere inside the resort is wonderful. It's incredibly relaxing. We never had a problem with excessive noise, especially since there are no kids. An adults-only resort is the way to go! We took one excursion to Xel-Ha for a day of snorkeling. That did not fit with the rest of our trip b/c there were so many kids there. I really did not enjoy that part of the trip.
Overall, an incredible experience that I'd recommend to anyone!
