Dear Dave,
So, are you a "New Year's Resolution" person or not?  We checked with our friends, and it was about 60-40 against making New Year's resolutions.
Regardless, for the 4th year in a row, I did set a weekly step goal resolution.  I've actually succeeded in carrying out my resolution for the past 3 years, so I know it's doable.


We spent Christmas in one of our favourite places... Palm Springs, with good friends.  It wasn't warm, but we did enjoy some sun!


I hope you spend the holidays with some of your favourite people!  Happy Sun Selling Season!
Dave Emery

MZTWhat our December FAM agents are saying...
Here's a quick summary what our FAM agents are saying about our El Cid-WestJet FAM  to the Riviera Maya  You can find  their more complete comments HERE.

Lisa, Pitt Meadows, BC
I want to start by saying the hotel itself and the grounds are absolutely stunning. The food is is some of the best food I have ever had at an all inclusive - definitely 5 star. The service is incredible. I love all the amenities for families. Major selling points are the kids club, the slide and diving pool at the Marina El Cid pool, and also the wading  pools for young children.
John, Regina, SK
The Marina El Cid and Ventus properties offers modern spacious rooms with plenty of options to meet the needs of small or large families. The activities on site are plentiful. The activities pool on the Marina side is just that. After watching kids and adults alike diving and jumping into the pool from on hig, it is sure to be a hit with many clients. For a quieter pace you can use the adults only infinity pool and hot tubs near the beach. The food across the property is very good, also offering many gluten free options. The Mercado de Dolores is a great experience or lunch. It offers a food court style buffet lunch that everyone can find something. Finish off at Aroma´s for a coffee or pastry.
Michelle, Burnaby, BC
I really do feel very comfortable and excited to sell the El Cid properties with confidence.
Ventus Marina El Cid as well as Marina El Cid are 2 amazing properties for the price of one.
Overall a complete 5 star property that I would be confident to sell to my clients.
Allan, Burnaby, BC 
It's definitely a we need to add to our must sell. Very modern rooms (USB connection on every outlet), great food, great staff. Must check out all the El Cid websites.
Very new and modern hotel. Not far from the airport. I would recommend the property for wedding groups or family getaways with kids. Very good food, service and evening shows. Greatly for young kids with kid facility that is open late. Restaurant reservations can be done three days prior to arrival.
Ludy, Toronto, ON
Now I have the courage to tell my colleagues to sell this resorts due to the following reasons;  20 minutes from Cancún /Riviera Maya Intl airport; 500 luxury rooms and suites with stocked mini bar.
Platinum Club- The upgraded experience offering additional privileges and do many more to mentions.

Harmatee, Mississauga, ON
1. It's an amazing resort for both couples and family. 
2. There is a little something for everyone.
3. Variety of restaurants and nightly entertainment. 
Dee, Victoria, BC
The main thing I can say about this Resort is that it is very relaxing. The food is five star.   The staff is wonderful. The Resort is very clean and the grounds are spectacular. Of course the staff is very accommodating lovely and is always giving you their heart. The pools and Jacuzzi hot tubs are just wonderful.
Annie, Vancouver, BC
I will definitely 99% recommend El CID Hotel and Marina resort. The service, location, staff are very professional and they definitely make you feel at home. Just for these unforgettable experiences, I can't wait to be back to work and start selling ELCid.
Eleanor, Surrey, BC
From the restaurants, staff, rooms, amenities and activities for all ages, El Cid Resorts will definitely be on top 5 on my list to recommend for Mexican package tours.
I was pampered for 3 hours at the COCAY SPA & MASSAGE .. that was the highlight of my trip. I'll tell everyone not to miss it!!! It's value was worth more than what it cost me.

Here's a quick summary what our FAM agents are saying about our El Cid-WestJet FAM  to the Riviera Maya (CONTINUED)  You can find  their more complete comments HERE.
Selene Solis, Vancouver, BC
Ventus El Cid property would be the ideal kind of resort for our clients looking for a 5-star secluded property and where they can enjoy high quality international cuisine. Plus, the Butler service would top up a luxury experience.
Nina, Ottawa, ON
Here is why I would recommend  El Cid properties in Cancun and Cozumel:

This is what I'll tell my clients and my colleagues: Your expectations will be exceeded. This resort  is absolutely beautiful with the most welcoming staff and services are attentive and personalized
All suites 1,2 or 3 bedroom suits are  bright, spacious, smelled amazing and had breath taking views of the Ocean. The property has direct access to their ocean marina. I had the best beach in the area....the food is delicious, well presented and the services are superior
It didn't matter which restaurant, buffet or bar you chose you will never be disappointed. All suites are luxurious. The kids and teens clubs are so cool and there are private area designated for adults. 
Jennifer, Scarborough, ON
This was the most amazing experience that I could ever imagine. Service was 10/10 and the staff was very attentive. Every day I was in Aww. Its a very luxurious resort.
Natalie, Airdrie, AB
El Cid Cancun is definitely a property I will sell. I have stayed at El Moro in Mazatlan and now Ventus at Puerto Morales. It is one of the prettiest, most luscious resorts I have seen. The landscaping at the Marina section was impeccable - there were countess species of flora. I was overwhelmed by the shades of green and the variety of colours in the flora as well as the degree of detail put into the planning of the grounds of this resort. I would definitely recommend the upgrade to Platinum Club!
This is a fantastic option for families and couples. There are three great pool options one being adult-only.
