ERC best swim up rooms

Looking forward to our trip starting May 3rd at the ERC. Was wondering where the best swim up rooms are for a quiet location with plenty of daily sunshine? We are staying in a regular swim up and not the Club section. Thanks in advance!!

Hi

We stayed at Excellence in 2011. Had a swim up room in building 6B. It faces the sunny side pretty much all day. Keep in mind that the S>U> suites here are not attached to the room like we have had at other resorts. You have a grassy area off your room leading to the pools. You can hang there in the sun though and be steps from the room or the pool. I preferred others like Princess where we stepped right into the pool.

That said, ERC is over the top. We have stayed at Princess, 3 Barcelos (including Palace), and others. ERC is definitely the highest level of service. Dinner is over the top. Bars (and drinks in general) are great. Rooms and bed are great, and room service is fast and so good quality wise that it was shocking. We had RS the first night arriving late thinking we would just grab something light off the typical RS menu. WOW, it was like eating in a 5 star restaurant. Look forward to a great time

For an EC swim up you want either #7b or #8 with the latter being the best in my opinion

So 7b and 8 are Excellence Club, ocean view, swim up. Any suggestions on non excellence club swim up rooms? We'll be there in 3 weeks... (Guess that was the original question anyway) Thanks...

See link to interactive resort map below

excellence-resorts.com/caribbean-and-mexico-…

For AM sun buildings #1, #2 or #6b would be good. More more PM sun you want the likes of #7 or #6 but please note that #7 will pick up noise in the evening from the entertainment

I'm traveling to ERC this summer. What block of swim-up rooms would get afternoon shade that are also quiet?
