Dear Dave,

Hello and Happy Halloween!!!

Ralphie Halloween


Well, Ralphie got into the Halloween spirit big time this year. As you can tell from her expression, she was absolutely thrilled to be in costume and promoting the ROYAL Housekeeping Service offered by Real Resorts.

Ralphie wanted everyone to know about the his & hers plush bathrobes and slippers, the pillow menu, and the fact that guests can decide the best time for daily suite make-up service and special evening turndown service including choice of aromatherapy and bath scents.

So what did you dress as this year? Hmmm??

Have a great month and hopefully chat soon.

El Cid Mazatlan - Even Bigger MegaPass Value
This season at all of the El Cid Mazatlan properties, the resort credit "MegaPass" is even bigger - a $1200 USD value! All bookings of 4 nights or more receive this coupon booklet with discounts on excursions, golf, shopping, spa treatments, car rentals, fishing and more.


Also, the Vancouver Sun recently posted a great article on Mazatlan. I love the opening line "When it comes to making memories, Mexico's Mazatlan has your number.", but the rest of the story deserves a read also!

Introducing Hyatt Zilara Cancun

When great brands come together, wonderful new guest experiences are created!

THE ROYAL Cancun beach

It is with great pleasure that we announce the rebranding of The ROYAL Cancun as the premier adult-only, all-inclusive Hyatt Zilara Cancun. Beginning mid-November the Resort's name will change but the exceptional service, luxury facilities, and staff will all remain -- enhanced by a few new and exciting Hyatt touches. Building on THE ROYAL Cancun's signature guest service, Hyatt Zilara Cancun will inspire adults to embrace new discoveries through activity-driven experiences.


As we move forward with the transition of THE ROYAL Cancun into Hyatt Zilara Cancun guests will begin to enjoy some subtle upgrades at the Resort. The changes will heighten the Resort's dining experience drawing on Hyatt's expert reputation for culinary service. Guest suites will also be upgraded to include Hyatt amenities such as new bedding, and the public areas will receive new furnishings. In addition, some suite category names will be adjusted for easier booking and extras such as ROYAL Service will be renamed Premium Service and SPAzul will become the SPA. But please be assured that these cosmetic upgrades are being made over time and will be seamless and non-disruptive to our guests. And most important,all of your current and new bookings remain intact under the same terms, and with our same passion for excellence and guest satisfaction.


It is also important to note that THE ROYAL Playa del Carmen, the Gran Caribe Real Cancun and the Gran Porto Real Playa del Carmen will continue operating under the same brand names with the all-inclusive service you have come to enjoy.


We realize that this is big news! We trust you share our enthusiasm by helping to support the launch of Hyatt Zilara Cancun and Hyatt Ziva Los Cabos. Hyatt's entry into the all-inclusive resort market is a big step forward for the entire resort industry, opening up the opportunity to introduce the luxury all-inclusive experience to a new group of guests. As always, we look forward to working with you, our travel industry partners and friends, as we embark on this new exciting new endeavor.
