Dear Dave,


So did you watch? Did you? Hmmm??? Did you set your alarm clock bright and early Friday morning to witness all the pomp & circumstance on the other side of the pond?  

You did, didn't you? That's OK me too. I was up at 2am. What can I say, I guess I'm a hopeless romantic. It really was a beautiful ceremony, and it was so nice to see everything go so smoothly, and even the unpredictable London weather cooperated.

Those Brits sure love their hats though, eh? Wow, there were some interesting ones, weren't there? Some better than others. I thought Camilla's was good, but I was dissapointed with Posh's. And the Queen (no, I'm not talking aobut Elton John) looked great in her yellow outfit and matching hat. She's always so stylish. By the way, have you ever wondered what the Queen keeps in her purse? I mean she probably doesnt' have to carry around much ID and I've never seen her use a cell phone. I'm sure she doesn't have to carry cash with her. So why does she have a purse and what's in it??? I'm curious. LOL  


Anywho old chap, have a great month and chat with you soon. Cheerio!

Enroute CoverWere you on an Air Canada flight during the month of April? If so, you probably noticed that Real Resorts was very well represented with 5 pages of editorial in enRoute magazine, as well as an in-flight video played on all of Air Canada's flights worldwide.


I was recently on an Air Canada flight (coming home from Winnipeg) and I was flipping through enRoute and started thinking about how lucky I am to represent such a high quality product like Real Resorts. It really is a rare occasion when I hear any kind of negative comments about Real Resorts. Everyone loves Real Resorts and I think a large part of that comes down to the exceptional service all guests receive. Real Resorts philosophy is to do everything with love, and that really shines through.


Real Resorts also extends that love to the travel agent community. In my opinion, the RRMembers Commission Booster program is one of the very best travel agent incentive programs in the industry. When you report your bookings through the site, your clients will receive a special welcome amenity in their suite and you will receive CASH for each suite booked. And Real Resorts is very generous to travel agents. It doesn't get much better than that!  


Real Resorts is also offering COMPLIMENTA fams to travel agents. Real Resorts knows that the best way to sell something is to experience it first-hand so that's why Real Resorts is hosting many fams throughout the year.

If you haven't registerd for the RRMembers Commission Booster program you are really missing out. It is one of the most generous travel agent incentive programs in the industry.

A big thank you for your hospitality! We had a fablous time at the El Cid. Our suite at the El Moro tower is amazing: spacious, two bathrooms and breath taking view of the ocean and mountain. Our maid Rosalia is the best....


This is a great resort for families with kids. The location, the beach, water sports, heated pool and friendly staff make it a perfect stay for families, which is our number one clientile. Since I came back, I had shared my experience with my teams and reviewed the selling features of the El Cid. We need to spread the words how safe and enjoyable Mazatlan is.


Once again thank you for making our vacation an experience of a life time. As a family, we spent some great time on the beach and at the restaurants of El Cid. The sunset, the birds and the waves are something my son will remember for sure...

Fall in Love with Mazatlan

Eva Longoria and her singer boyfriend Eduardo Cruz (baby brother of Penelope Cruz), decided to vacation in charming Mazatlan over the Easter long weekend. They wandered along the cobblestone streets of the Historic Center and strolled the beautiful beaches and the Malecon. The couple also enjoyed a city tour, where they stopped by the 150-year-old Basilica, the Angela Peralta Theatre and Mercado. Upon departing, the couple left with the promise to come back to continue discovering the beauty of Mazatlan.
