I thought I would give updates about the construction without me hijacking everyone else's threads.
I've been sat here under my palapa trying to think about this from the different points of view. I booked EPM before I knew about the construction and although I would not have been able to get a refund if I cancelled I didn't want to anyway. We can still access all the facilities and enjoy everything the resort has to offer.
If I'm being completely honest yes the pile driving is annoying but when it happens it goes on for a few minutes then seems to stop. It is very intimitent. It has been going on early on a morning. Didn't hear it today till about half 7 when we were eating our breakfast in Toscana but I think if I hadn't been listening for it I probably wouldn't have taken any notice. It was happening through the night it woke my boyfriend up at 2am but I did not hear a thing. I'm sat by the pool now and can't hear anything.
The resort is beautiful, you don't have to see the construction and when there's music playing by the pool etc you don't hear it. Can't compare it to the pirate ship as I haven't heard it yet!
If anyone wants to know anything else I will try be honest and answer any questions.
For those of you who are worrying about it I honk I would change resorts just for peace of mind. You are going to come here and be listening for it and likelyhood is you'll probably hear it. But it is definitely not spoiling my holiday and I won't let it either.
