Last year we defended EPM after trying STV. On site at EPM today staying another 7 nights but room categories are not the same due to construction. We are really surprised at what ocean view vs ocean front is. EC concierge says there are no "ocean front" rooms but they are still selling them at a premium on the website. We were booked in 7321 ocean front but our view is of the ninos playing at Beloved next door. We can't even hear the ocean. Room card had someone else's name on it so we realize we were relocated for someone who complained more than us. Concierge definitely recommends that we stay away from bldg 9. We came here to see the ocean, so we decided to roll the dice.
Not a great start to the vacation we have been looking forward to since November. Perhaps secrets is our best option for the future. Right now we are missing that master suite at STV for the same price.
