Mr & Mrs H arrived "home"again last evening. Great flight with BA from Gatwick and a smooth run through immigration in Cancun. Feels like we haven't been away.
We have seen some familar faces already...Virginia, Jesus, Adan, Gianeli, Victor. We are sorry that we will not meet Mariana Lojero this trip as she is at home but have met with Daniella and Christy and I am sure that they will be as fabulous at taking care of guests too
I am also pleased to say that some of us regulars are here too - saw drinkincandadian and mattbethnewjersey earlier today. They have been here a few days ahead of us already and seem to be having a good time despite the weather. (Happy birthday special lady)
Last night saw a lovely set up in the cafe cafe square to celebrate Mexican Independence day. Unfortunately the weather somewhat curtailed the celebrations with an ill timed shower. I am very pleased to say that the weather has behaved a little better today than I have been reading on the forums of late - until just now - as it is raining as I type (which is a shame as the staff have been setting up the Caribbean nite all day on the beach - looks like this will be a wash out unless thinks improve dramatically.
It was windy in the morning however the wind settled and allowed for some time for relaxing on the beach, We managed a good walk along the beach - largely to stretch our legs but also to look at the new resort being built north of the resort. It will be up past the golf course so IMO will have minimal impact on EPM. The beach towards the Beloved appears narrower than we remembered and they appear to have errected some extra huts. It looks very quiet over there.
We spotted a sea eagle and some pelicans fishing on our walk. One of the poor pelicans was pestered by a gull that sat on its back/head everytime it caught a fish- in a cheeky attempt to steal the catch!
Joined in a couple of classes around mid morning Aloe Class and Monkey Drink Class...ladies if you get the chance do go to the Aloe class. Patricia is fun and taught us how to make the best of aloe in our beauty regimens! Definitely on my list of new beauty secrets!
A few changes we have noticed so far
Food presentations so far are improved.
Menus have been switched up
New tassimo style coffee machines in the club bed rooms (GOOD coffee!)
Beach north of resort has much more vegetation than last year
We plan on dining in the Basmati tonight. Then chilling in the Martini Bar.
Any questions I can help with - just ask! You have two weeks of opportunities :)
