Proud to Represent...
Hello from beautiful Cancun & Riviera Maya!!
I've been down here for the past couple of days
attending the Annual Real Resorts Reps Sales
Meetings. I look forward to it every year
because I work with such amazing and talented people
(and I'm not just saying that because they are probably
reading this LOL), and it is so great to connect with
them every year.
On the first night we had a "Night of
Hollywood Stars" party at
THE ROYAL Cancun that was so much fun.
Pictured above is Audrey Hepburn (Gina,
Real Rep based in Texas), Dr Evil & Austin
Powers (Ann & Megan, Real Reps based in New
York), Cleopatra (Marlene, Real Rep
based in Peru) and Selena (Maria, Real
Rep based in Phoenix).
Here I am with Memoirs of a Geisha
(Diane, Real Rep based in New Jersey). Can you guess who
It was a lot of fun and lots of laughs, but I was a
little worried at the end of the night that the mustache
might not come off (it was glued on) but luckily it came
off without any permanent damage to my upper lip! :)
Of course it's always great to come down to destination,
because besides bonding with my colleagues, it's always
a great chance to re-aquaint myself with the product.
And what a phenomenal product I get to represent!! Real
Resorts really is ahead of the competition when it comes
to pampering your clients. Honestly, it really doesn't
get any better than Real Resorts.
Please keep reading below for all the latest news and
also our monthly photo contest.
Have a great month and as always if you need anything
please don't hesitate to contact me.

YOUR CLIENTS CAN TRAVEL LIGHT
Honua Kai Offers Washer & Dryer in Every Unit
couple of months ago I did something that I hardly
ever do. I travelled light...really light...as in
do it because we were going to Honua Kai Resort & Spa
and I knew that we would have a washer & dryer in our
suite (every unit has them). It was nice to know that
I could pack smartly and I'd be able to do a load or
two of laundry as needed while I was there.
one of those things that you don't really think about,
but what a fantastic perk. As soon as we stepped off
the plane at OGG we totally bi-passed baggage claim
and we went directly to the car shuttle ahead of the
crowd. We were shopping at the ABC in no time!!! It
was a great way to travel but I couldn't have done it
without the convenience of the high-end washer/dryer
in our suite.
having the laundry so handy it's great for families
traveling with kids I would imagine. Need to do a load
t-shirts and bathing suits? No problem.
Kai even supplies detergent and Bounce dryer sheets!!!

PARK'N FLY WINS VANCOUVER TOURISM AWARD
Congratulations Dan Lantin!!!
Congratulations to Dan Lantin for being selected as
the winner of the Vancouver Tourism Award for October
2012! Dan was selected as the most outstanding out of
more than 150 submissions in October.
Here is the Nomination:
When we arrived in Vancouver it was quite
late and dark out. We tried to find our way driving
from YVR to the Delta Vancovuer Airport Hotel but
found it very difficult as road signs were not very
clear. As we passed the Park'N Fly @ YVR we noticed a
couple of employees and decided to stop and ask
directions. Still not clear on where to go Dan took us
over personally to the hotel and even offered to help
with our bags. What great service we received! Thanks
over 23 years, the Vancouver Tourism Awards Program
has been paying tribute to individuals who show
outstanding hospitality toward visitors to Vancouver.
