    We just returned from our trip to Secrets Akumal and I wanted to let you know we had a fantastic time. The resort is absolutely stunning and the staff is outstanding. We even received a personal welcome from the GM Eric Freudenthaler.

    We also received a room upgrade to a preferred room in building 3 (both of which I know we can attribute to being your client).

    We snorkeled every day and saw many fish and turtles. The entertainment staff was engaging and went out of their way to make the guests feel welcome. As usual you helped us have a wonderful time and we will continue to recommend your services to anyone we know that is looking to travel. 

    Thanks again and we will be in touch to plan our next vacation.
