Dear Dave,

I know you are dreaming about getting back to booking dream trips for your clients, but what trips are you dreaming about right now?  What cancelled trips will you be re-booking when appropriate?
I'm dreaming about 3 things -
1.  Booking a trip/cruise to Iceland

2.  Heading to Angkor Wat with Realistic Asia

 3.  Getting more good agents back to El Cid Resorts with some fun FAMs.
 Stay safe, wear a mask and be patient!

ElCidEl Cid Resorts - Introduces "Always Committed" Program

For over 45 years, El Cid Resorts has been building trust through commitment with our guests, partners and employees. Commitment to deliver the best guest experience with worldwide quality and service, commitment to be a great place to work, and commitment to health, among others.

We are proud to share our "Always Committed" Protocol Program, with the objective to preserve the well-being and health of our dear guests, employees and their families against COVID-19, by implementing rigorous protocols in quality and hygiene processes endorsed by Preverisk and Cristal, world-renowned companies for certifying the most important hotel chains in the world.
HERE are some of the new standards we are implementing to offer safe vacation experiences to our guests in our properties in Mazatlán, Cancún-Riviera Maya and Cozumel.
A few of the hygiene protocols include:
-        All staff will wear masks, gloves and when necessary protective masks.
-        Physical distancing is enforced in all areas.
-        Placement of antibacterial gel in all "guest contact" areas.

When it is appropriate, we want you to be able to sell any of the El Cid Resorts properties with confidence.


Of course, now may be a GREAT time to check your El Cid Rewards balance and use some point with some fun online shopping.  Check out your balance at the El Cid Rewards Program


Note that bookings must be made through any Tour Operator such: Sunwing, WestJet, etc. Bookings made it through online companies such: Expedia, Travelocity, Hotels.com will not be applicable to El Cid Rewards points.
