March 2014

Dear Dave,

OMG is this winter ever going to end?? I hate to complain but it seems really bad this year, no?


Ralphie Coquihala Summit


Poor Ralphie doesn't know what to think. Being a SoCal girl this must be a major shock for her!  I took that pic on Wednesday at the Coquihala Summit on our way to Vernon. Isn't that crazy?? So much snow!


I know, I shouldn't complain, we've had it pretty good in BC compared to the rest of Canada. My sister lives in Saskatoon and she said it's supposed to go down to MINUS 61 with the windchill this weekend!!! 


My friend Susan Vincent from TPI Travel (also from Saskatoon) posted this on her Facebook and it made me laugh as it kinda puts things in perspective. :)


BC shut up
Only 3 more weeks until Spring...YAY!!
Anyways, try to stay warm and have a great month. Please  remember if you need anything we're here to help.

Hyatt Zilara Cancun Four Diamond Award

THE ROYAL Cancun view photoHyatt Zilara Cancun, the first adult-only all-inclusive resort to debut under the Hyatt brand, was honored with the American Automobile Association (AAA) Four-Diamond rating for 2014, reflecting an exceptional degree of hospitality, service and attention to detail, while offering upscale facilities and a variety of luxurious amenities. The new brand, owned and managed by Playa Hotels & Resorts B.V., was introduced in tandem with Hyatt Ziva in late 2013, quickly establishing itself within an elite circle, as only 5.3 percent of nearly 30,000 hotels approved by AAA make the Four-Diamond list. READ MORE.

Freddie's Top Ten List 

Honua Kai ValetTop Ten Reasons to Book 

Honua Kai Resort & Spa:


10. Washer/Dryer. I know it doesn't sound like a big deal but believe me, IT IS A BIG DEAL!! It's so awesome having high-end washer/dryers in every suite.


9. Size. The units are BIG! Our 2-bedroom unit last October was over 1,200sq feet.


8. Aquatic Playground. The best pools on Maui hands-down.


7. Duke's BeachHouse Restaurant. Hula Pie. Mmmmm...


6. Valet Parking. Is there anything better than pulling up in a convertible and handing the keys over to let someone else park it?


5. Consistency. Unlike most condo-style accommodations on Maui, you're not playing interior design roulette (some units looking like the 1970's). Every unit is new and every unit is gorgeously decorated.


4. Kitchens. I'll be the first to admit I'm not a world-class cook, but even I appreciated the high-end stainless steel appliances in every unit.


3. Concierge. Friendly on-site concierge available to help you book tours or just to advise you the best places to go snorkeling or shopping.


2. Internet. Fast & reliable internet service to update your Facebook, Twitter, FourSquare, Instagram, Pinterest, etc.


1. Location. Hello?? It's located directly on the #1 Rated North Ka'anapali Beach!

One of the BEST nightclubs in Mexico -
Christine's Disco at the Krystal Vallarta
This title describes Christine's Disco in Puerto Vallarta, located on the property of Krystal Vallarta and steps from the Hilton Puerto Vallarta Resort. 
Here is the rest of the description as provided by one of our fine tour operator partners:  "Many will swear by this club, and tell you it is the BEST nightclub in all of Mexico. They just might be right, from the moment you step in you will find yourself walking to the rhythm of the music. This club is geared to all sorts of music lovers, with the DJ spinning anything from rock to pop to house and even hip hop. Make sure to make it there by midnight so you can take part in the one of a kind laser show. See if you can keep up with the locals and dance until the sun comes up at Christine's!  Dance until the sun comes up at Christine's."  Note that there is also a Christine's Disco at the Krystal Ixtapa (pictured).
Dave will be conducting two upcoming Hilton/Krystal Webinars. Each webinar will last 30 minutes. Sign up today.
