Hotel's Favorite
This was our second trip to ERC and despite Covid, 2 hurricanes and a tropical storm that caused that caused some damage we had a fabulous time. We stayed in a EC swim out with Ocean view- Gorgeous! The staff is better than ever and I want to give a shut out to some who were fabulous, starting with Leodani who we met bartending at the Excellence Club and Martini bar. He was just so kind and friendly and looked after us. Next is our housekeeper, Jaasiel, who not only did a great job keeping our room clean but made us some lovely towel art. if you are in the Excellence club you are truly lucky to have a wonderful waitress named Amable at the pool and beach. She remembers everything you like and is fast, fast ,fast!. Yuli did our turn down service and did a wonderful job. We did all the restaurants this time except Basmati and Lobster house. The food is even better than I remember. We did not have a bad meal anywhere. Oregano was a huge surprise to us and had the best beef tenderloin ever. Some of our other favorite waitstaff who took time out to speak with us and offer suggestions that always turned out great were Sandra, Amir, Laura and Andres at Flavor market-we at there twice. We also ran into Sandra again at Spice and Juan at Spice for dinner. Marcel was a pleasure at Agave. Manuel and Luis at Chez gave us the perfect suggestions for dinner-seabass and Filet mignon. Guillermo and Sergio at the grill were a lot of fun and Francisco at Oregano seemed to anticipate our every need. Finally we did the included hydrotherapy with Isaac as our leader. It was sooo good. you should definitely do this

You have to go to experience this place for yourself. Absolutely the best, period. Everything from the landscape when you pull through the gates to the tiny details that house keeping takes care of, you will know that you are experiencing something special. This was our second time at ERC and we’ve already booked our third. There isn’t anything within reason that the staff won’t do to make this a trip of a lifetime. Hands down, second to none.

Hotel Leadership should prioritize worker and customer safety and implement a mask mandate at all locations on property to protect and mitigate against COVID-19. Plastic face shields are not appropriate to protect against COVID-19. Room service could leave food in the service cabinet.
