Dear David,

Well, you did it.

You survived another Canadian winter. YAY!!!

April has arrived and it is officially Spring. The weather is getting warmer, the days are getting longer, and the mosquitoes are on their way!!! LOL

I was in YYZ last week and guess what street my hotel was on...

Dixie Road

I thought that was appropriate!!! :)

And speaking of Dixie, I've been receiving a lot of complaints that Dixie hasn't appeared in the newsletter for the past 2 months. Well, what can I say, she's been a little bit camera-shy.

But I told her that she has to start earning her keep, so for your viewing enjoyment click HERE to watch "Dixie vs the Vacuum Cleaner".

I hope you have a great month. If you need anything you know how to get hold of us.

Chat with you soon,


Freddie Marsh, CTC

Dave's Montreal
Restaurant Recommendation



I had a great dinner in Montreal recently when I was in town doing El Cid sales calls. It's a place called O'Noir. You go in, and eat totally in the dark. It was pitch black, and you coudn't even bring in cell phones. The waiters are blind or site impaired. You order from the menu before you go to your seats in the dark area, or you have the option of letting them surprise you for all your courses.  We voted to be surprised.  It was an amazing experience that we really enjoyed.  I'd totally go back there with someone who hasn't experienced it. Two thumbs up!

Here's a picture from Dave's evening at O'Noir.

Welcome Atlantic Canada
Travel Agents!!!

This month we are happy to welcome Atlantic Canada agents to the newsletter. YAY!!!

Dave and I both got back from separate trips to the Maritimes last month. I was in YYT and Dave was in YHZ and YQM.

We had heard that people in the Atlantic provinces are extremely warm and friendly and from our experiences those rumours are definitely true! It was a true pleasure meeting you all and hopefully we'll see you again real soon.

In the meantime, if you need anything don't hesitate to contact Freddie for anything regarding Real Resorts and Dave for anything regarding El Cid Resorts.
Real Resorts DVD
for Your Office

Do you have a TV/DVD in your office? Would you like your very own copy of the Real Resorts DVD to play and entice clients? Just send me a quick email ( and I'll mail one out to you ASAP.

And yes, it is programmed for auto-loop, which means that you can let it run all day if you want and it will keep repeating!!!

BTW, I just finished watching it and it is REALLY good. It shows all 5 of the Real Resorts properties and even has some catchy music! :)

Non-Stop Summer Service to Mazatlan
wj plane

Westjet is offering summer non-stop flights to Mazatlan from Vancouver and Calgary gateways starting in May. That's great news. Thanks Westjet!

Vancouver to Mazatlan: EVERY SATURDAY
Calgary to Mazatlan: EVERY TUESDAY

And don't forget easy connections can be made from other Canadian cities.

Personally, I think those Tuesday flights via Calgary will be great for the honeymoon market. The couple can get married on Saturday, have time to enjoy friends and family for the gift-opening and then off to beautiful Mazatlan for their dream honeymoon!

And it goes without saying that we think the best place to stay in Mazatlan is of course El Cid Resorts

El Cid Rewards

I know we talk about this in every newsletter, but shockingly there are still many agents who haven't signed up for El Cid Rewards yet. Don't make us come into your office and bribe you with candy!!! Oh, actually that sounds like a good idea. I'm writing that idea down. LOL

The whole idea behind the rewards program is to reward YOU for your loyalty. And El Cid made it user-friendly and flexible so you can pick your own rewards. It's a win-win.

And because El Cid is so generous, you will receive 650 bonus points just for signing up to get you started.

"Wonderful Wedding at El Cid Resorts"

El Resorts Testimonial Provided by
Karen & Les of Saskatchewan

Hola Eva,Karen & Les wedding photo
Les and I would like to thank you and all of the staff at the Marina El Cid for a wonderful wedding and stay. We appreciate the work that you and your fellow co-workers do!

Our wedding was perfect, the kids club was so much
fun our kids only wanted to be there, the food was incredible and Alex the photographer did an amazing job on our wedding photo's. (Too good of a job - we ened up buying all of them!!)
We also really enjoyed shopping and visiting Puerto Morelos. What a
beautiful village filled with friendly people. It was a nice change from
the high pressure sales and craziness of Cancun or Playa del Carmen!
We recommend that anyone looking for a great place for a family vacation or destination wedding definitely go to the Marina El Cid!
Thanks again, 

Karen & Les
