They weren't really VIPs just a few overdressed millennials that thought despite there being about 10 tables on that side all of the waitstaff should cater only to them. I didn't hold it against the staff but thought the waitress could have done a better job of diffusing the situation. Quite a few tables were effected and I'm sure not everyone was as forgiving as we tend to be. We are honestly the lowest maintenance diners one could ever hope for. When I arrive I already know what I want. I'm probably half dehydrated from beaching it all day so keep the water flowing and I'll tip you well. When I'm finished try to get me the check in under 20 minutes and I'll be happy... under 10 and I'll love you forever.
Thanks for clarifying it, Curt. That's kind of disappointing getting neglected that way. You truly are a saint for being so patient. I probably would not have been.
Did you try to make a little signal with your hand to get the waiter's attention? That's something I remember as a cultural difference. When I read today about the Bucuti, it was mentioned in that article that if the guests on the beach there wanted something, they would "raise a little red flag" on their table and the waitstaff would appear immediately.
Lots of locals at the beach which changes the vibe... if you ask me its for the better. It kind of elevates the energy level of Eagle to a midpoint between its usual pace and that of Palm. Soccer balls being kicked around, young families with newborns and music being played in the background. To me its pretty perfect. We stayed there much later today then the usual.
I completely love & respect that vibe change Makes me thankful that they allow me to share their land
Thanks for sharing your trip Curt, sounds like you and Maggie had a great time doing a lot of different things. After reading your daily reports, we have decided we want to spend more time at Eagle Beach this coming trip.
