Real Resorts Fact Sheets: Helping you Close the Sale

Linda May-DinsmoreI recently received an email from Linda May-Dinsmore, CTC from TPI and she kindly agreed to let me share it here.


Quick story to share - had some clients call me who had been looking on expedia to go to the Gran Porto Real in Nov (so I must admit I didn't really have to sell them on the resort).


But they did ask me about the different room types and did I know what they were.  Well, I just grabbed my new fact sheet from our TPI dinner  (although, have to admit again that it was still sitting the bag - but at least I knew where it was !)  and spouted off about the location of the rooms, the square footage and other general things. 


There was a bit of a pause on the other end of the line and then they said, wow - how were you able to give us all that detailed information so quickly ?  So of course I said, well that's why you book with a professional travel agent instead of the internet.  They laughed but after they got off the phone, called their friends and they booked with me too !

 Real Hotel Fact Sheet

So thank you to the Real Resorts for creating those sheets and making me look good.   (and they are flying with Westjet Vacs because they are the best too !)




Now, if you're not sure what hotel fact sheets Linda is referring to, you can get your very own Real Resorts fact sheets by following these easy steps:

El Cid's Baby Turtle Release
El Cid turtle relase 2

Hotel Marina El Cic Spa & Beach Resort relased baby turtles for a second time this year. This time El Cid's youngest guests were part of this incredible once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

El Cid contributes to the sustainable devlopment of species such as the marine turtles, the crocodiles, the crabs and the aquatic birds that live in the environment.

The young volunteers received a special certificate from the Resort General Manager thanking them for participating and also received a free all-inclusive stay as a thank you for their help in the Release Program.

Hotel Marina El Cid Spa & Beach Resort has been certified as a green hotel!!!

The resort is one of only five hotels in Mexico to be awarded the prestigious Green & Environmental Certification. This award recognizes El Cid's ongoing efforts to meet stringent sustainable devlopment practices and a company-wide commitment to ecological conservation. To learn more click HERE.

Real Resorts Beach Cams

One of the most common questions I get when I'm out doing sales calls is "How are the Beaches?"

Well, did you know that Real Resorts has REAL TIME BEACH WEBCAMS?

You can get a birds-eye view of any of the beaches in front of THE ROYAL Cancun, THE ROYAL in Playa del Carmen, the Gran Caribe Real and the Gran Porto Real.

It's a great way to see first-hand what the beaches look like at Real Resorts. It's a great selling tool. Check it out now!
