I just got back after spending a week in Mexico, and
what a fantastic week it was!!! Officially, I was
there for business (sales meetings & site
inspections), but unofficially I did manage to get a
tiny bit of R&R and some beach time too (shhhh,
don't tell anyone).
The weather was great and the beaches were
fantastic, but what I think really sets Mexico apart
is the VALUE. Honestly, there really is no other
place that offers SO much for SO little. Mexico is a
place you can go to totally pamper yourself, but not
break the bank. The key words here are Quality and
Value. It's no that wonder Canadians love Mexico so

EVERYBODY Wants to go to Real Resorts!!!
You may remember in last month's newsletter there
of Dixie sleeping inside my suitcase. It
was so cute. Well, I received an email from Tammy at
Lakeview Travel in Ontario...
Hi Freddie :)
Hope all is well with you. I just had to send you
this pic of my baby Chloe. Apparently she and Dixie
both love the suitcases :) This is what I found when
I was packing for my last trip to the Gran Porto
OK, let's all saw "AWWWW
isn't that cute???". I love Chloe. I laughed
so hard when I saw it. Thanks Tammy!!!
So I think it goes to show that EVERYONE wants to go
to Real Resorts, even our furry friends!

So what do you do when you have clients with 3
children? Most resorts have a maximum of 4 people in a
room so you have to book them into 2 rooms and request
adjoining. Booking 2 rooms can be expensive and of
course there is never any guarantee that they will get
adjoining. What a pain.
Now you don't have to worry about all that because you
can book them into one of Real Resorts' new
FAMILY JUNIOR SUITES
at the Gran Porto Real in Playa del Carmen or the Gran
Caribe Real in Cancun. These suite categories have a
maximum occupancy of 5 people (2 adults and 3 children
or teens). Yes, we said 5 PEOPLE!!!
These suites feature a bunk bed with a trundle
bed. The kids will LOVE IT, and so will Mom & Dad
because they can be all together.
And don't forget that Real Resorts has Kid's Stay,
Play and Eat Free until October 31st at the Gran
Porto Real and until December 24th at the Gran
Caribe Real. They also have a special 40% discount
for teens in all suite categories at the Grans.

The American Academy of Hospitality Sciences to select

for facilities, operations and service.
