Resort, Villa & Destination Update!

So, as always, I’m working daily toward professional development classes/webinars to keep up with the ever-changing travel industry.  An educated travel agent who has great relationships with resort and destination reps is your best ally (ME!!!)  Tonight, I had an awesome resort update from Occidental Resorts and AlSol hotels.  I officially need another notebook for all of the notes I take!

AlSol is a new brand to ask me about with properties located in the area of Cap Cana, Dominican Republic which is not far from Punta Cana.  This area boasts 30,000 ecologically pristine acres featuring white sand beaches, turquoise ocean, cliffs and beautiful forests.  The AlSol properties, such as Sanctuary Cap Cana, AlSol Luxury Village, AlSol Del Mar and AlSol Tiara Collection provide a luxury retreat among this adventurous area of Punta Cana.  Not only is it one of the top five fishing destinations in the world but there are so many nature-based activities, on land and by sea, that has it being hailed as the “World’s Greatest New Destination” according to AlSol Hotels & Resorts.  AlSol offers family, villa and adults-only resort options.

Occidental Resorts also had many updates to share.  Occidental Grand Xcaret though has to be the property I want to visit the most, ASAP! This resort sits next door to the Xcaret Park. Through a special partnership program between the park and the resort, guests are offered discounted pricing to enter and enjoy this park next door. The resort even provides options to go to the park by land or by sea via a canoe!  This is a great option for my adventurous clients who want to enjoy the history of Mexico, the jungle, swim with dolphins and not have to get in a bus to do so.  The convenience of the park location provides you the opportunity to adventure at your leisure and be back for a swim and relaxing nap in no time!

In addition to my excitement over the Occidental Grand property in Xcaret, I’ve also really taken interest in their Allegro property in Cozumel.  This property is a value resort that really is a great “bang for your buck”, especially for divers. Your stay includes a dive a day and any additional dives are ONLY $38 USD!! They even boast a diving section on the resort that has a place for you to properly hang your gear to dry, learn about the next day’s dive adventure and enjoy a divers-lounge. They provide the only all-inclusive dive vacation experience on the island of Cozumel. My clients can enjoy access to one of the largest barrier reefs in the world in conjunction with the great service of this newly updated resort.

Obviously, Occidental Grand and Allergro properties are available in other places outside of those I’ve highlighted here, but these are what excited me tonight and I couldn’t wait to share. I have information in my notebook bursting with details about each of the resorts and how I can best match one of their properties, if you are interested, to fit your travel needs.  A BIG thanks to our resort rep Diane who spent the time this evening updating our team personally!
