I spent the month (or two-or three:) before our trip reading the Excellence forums anticipating our trip. Well, now I'm here and have decided to pay it forward. I'm not much of a writer, but here goes... we have been here for a few days now and this place is amazing. We decided to do the excellence club and are enjoying it. I especially like the beach area better. It's not quite as crowded. The weather has been perfect. Drink service around the beach and pool area has been a little slow, but the servers seem to be doing the best they can. (I love Rosie- she is wonderful- a hard worker with a very pleasant attitude.)We had dinner last night at Chez. I miss the balcony (EPM) but food and service were outstanding. We have also had dinner in Basmati and Agave. All meals have been as good or better than what I remember from EPM. They have all been so good I can't pick a favorite. Headed to Spice tonight. Tonight is the Madonna show. We have never seen it so I am looking forward to it very much. Tomorrow is our anniversary- cant think of many places I'd rather be.
