We just returned from our visit to EDC with a group of 18 other close couples! While EDC definitely caters to the honeymooners and those couples looking for a private getaway, we had a fabulous time. Many in our group had previously visited EDC, although it was the first all inclusive experience and first time at EDC for my husband and I. We stayed in an individual casita and were extremely pleased with the privacy, romantic atmosphere and service we received. The amenities were top notch, the room was serviced daily (including turn down service each night). Our days were spent playing beach volleyball and lounging at the 30-section pool. My husband and I took advantage of the Sky Massage service, which is a must! No better way to start the day than with a private massage on the beach. In the evenings we enjoyed the beach bar in the casita section, followed by dinner and then some dancing at Guacamayas (the swing bar and nighttime entertainment venue). As I previously mentioned, EDC definitely doesn't cater to large groups such as ours and our only complaint was our inability to obtain dinner reservations, even when trying to split our group into smaller tables. We inquired in advance of the trip and were told to wait and make reservations with our concierge upon arrival. We did this and unfortunately the first and second nights we had confirmed reservations only to be turned away at the door. The following morning, the concierge apologized profusely for the miscommunication and error and for the remaining nights of dinner we split into smaller tables and enjoyed dinners at JoJo's, Italia, and Kampai. We would absolutely return to EDC, although I would definitely like to experience it with a smaller group that EDC is more conducive for.
