Dear Dave,

Hola Amigos!!!

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 much.

And speaking of love, here is a video letting you know how much Real Resorts Loves you, the travel agent!!!

EVERYBODY Wants to go to Real Resorts!!!

You may remember in last month's newsletter there was a video 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 Real. LOL

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!

Family SuitesFamily with 3 Kids photo
at Real Resorts

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. For more detailed information about the promotions and the booking codes, please click HERE.

How long have you been working at Real Resorts?
I started working with Real Resorts in 2000.

Have you always worked in the Wedding Department?
No, I started working as a Wedding Specialist almost 3 years ago. Before that I was the Chief Concierge at THE ROYAL in Cancun.

Why did you decide to start looking after weddings?
I thought it would be a fun to work with couples to make their dream wedding become a reality and see them so happy.

What is your favorite part about your job?
Some times couples will come to see me maybe the next day to thank me and tell me that I made the best day of their life. That is very rewarding for me to know that I helped make their perfect dream wedding come true.

Are you busy in the Wedding DepartmeZulma Workingnt?
Yes, very much so. In May we had 108 weddings at THE ROYAL in Playa del Carmen and the Gran Porto Real. Destination Weddings are very popular.

Is there anything you would like to say to the Travel Agents?
I would like the Travel Agents to know that we will do our very best to make the best day for their clients. That is why we are here. The important thing is to make the clients happy and we will do everything we can to make that happen.
