We arrived at EPM Saturday around noon. We choose Canada Transfers & it was very smooth. George, our driver, had a XX Amber for me & a Pacifico for my wife.
We checked-in at the EC lounge, got our buzzer and went to lunch at the grill. After lunch, we went to the beach for a couple of hours. I'm not 100% sure we went to the EC end of the beach. We were near the water sports area.
At 3:00, we went back to the lounge and our room was ready. I had requested an RTT in 8b and they nailed it. Thank you TA & this forum...
We went to dinner at Basmati last night. We arrived at 6:15 & had the place to ourselves for the first 30 minutes. That was our first Indian food experience and it exceeded our expectations. The Tikka Chicken was great. We also had an appetizer that I called 'red chicken' and it was crazy good. We tried the Kufi ice cream & coconut custard desserts and bailed out after a bite of each. Next time, more red chicken, no dessert.
We went to the EC lounge for coffee & dessert. The staff in there are outstanding and have already started learning our names. We went back this morning for coffee after breakfast. I'm thinking I'd do EC again for the coffee machine in there. It's early, but that's the best cup of coffee we've found so far.
We intended to go the the Fire Show last night but fell asleep on the patio. The singers sounded great from our patio. Hopefully tonight, we'll stay up late enough to check out the entertainment up close.
I'm currently holding down a chair by the lazy river; living the dream... So far, this is everything we hoped for.
