Royal Resorts Protects Sea Turtles In Cancun, Mexico

Resort guests are delighted to be involved in this initiative as part of their vacation experience, they help security guards keep watch and they play an important role in their survival.
— Carlo Bicaci, Grand Residences General Manager
Cancun based, Royal Resorts continues initiative to save endangered sea turtles.

During the summer season sea turtles emerge from the waves, returning to lay their eggs on the white sand beaches of Cancún and the Riviera Maya. Throughout the summer and into the fall, the dedicated Royal Resorts security staff patrol the beaches nightly on the lookout for more nesting turtles in an effort to protect them and transfer baby sea turtles to safety.

Grand Residences, a Leading Hotel of the World, is the newest addition to the Royal Resorts portfolio and is ideally situated between Cancun and Playa del Carmen, within a half hour from the Cancun International Airport. This tranquil enclave is protected by a coral reef, where green sea turtles dwell and is participating in the turtle protection campaign for the first time. There is a National Marine Park located in the front yard and a nature reserve in the backyard. A beach stroll takes you to Puerto Morelos, the Riviera Maya’s last quaint fishing village and the inspiration for Jimmy Buffet’s song about laid-back Margaritaville.

Sea turtles are considered and endangered species in the U.S. and Mexico. Despite federal and state protection, fishermen kill large numbers, and some die following the entanglement in discarded fishing gear or from ingesting plastics and other debris. In many cases nesting is hindered or disrupted by coastal development and other human activities. After hatching at night, baby sea turtles find their way to the ocean by following the brightest horizon. Confused, many head towards the artificial lights of houses, hotels, or other structures and die before they reach the water.

In an effort to prevent this, the security staff at Royal Resorts transfers the sea turtle eggs to their purpose built corrals to protect them from human activity or coastal development. Once the eggs hatch, guests have the opportunity to watch and participate in setting the tiny turtle hatchings free.

On June 25, 2013 Grand Residences welcomed its first turtle of the season. The green turtle eggs were transferred to the new corral and the nest was labeled with the date, time, species, size and number of eggs. The Grand Residences corral is the first such enclosure on the beach and will protect the eggs from predators such as crabs, birds, raccoons and dogs, and from the waves.

“Resort guests are delighted to be involved in this initiative as part of their vacation experience, they help security guards keep watch and they play an important role in their survival.” Says Carlo Bicaci, Grand Residences General Manager.

In addition guests can also purchase sea turtle souvenirs from which a percentage of the sales proceeds is donated to Royal Resorts Foundation’s conservation causes.

DAE Europe Introduces ‘Welcome Home’ Campaign

DAE Europe
Members of worldwide holiday exchange company DAE Europe are being invited to review their latest exchange holiday in a new campaign launched by the DAE Europe office.

The ‘Welcome Home’ campaign includes an email to members returning from their DAE exchange, welcoming them back home and inviting them to provide feedback on their exchange experience.

“DAE has always offered a wide range of holiday opportunities across the UK and Europe, with simple week to week exchange available from beachfront to mountainside, and luxurious to rustic,” said Oliver Green, Managing Director of DAE Europe.

“There is a variety of experiences to suit everyone, which is why DAE does not grade resorts; rather, we let our members who experience the holiday first hand provide their honest reviews.

“Now as part of a new customer service initiative, every returning DAE guest will receive a ‘Welcome Home’ email asking them all about their holiday and encouraging them to submit feedback on their resort experience.

“It’s a way for us to improve our customer service with returning members, and to gather useful data from members sharing their experiences for the benefit of future exchange guests.

“If there is anything we can do to help enhance the holiday experiences of current and future DAE members, we would love to hear about it and work with resorts to make it happen.”

Through the email campaign members will be encouraged to submit a self-typed review, or can submit a feedback rating on a list of criteria including:

• Helpfulness and courtesy of staff
• Cleanliness and maintenance of facilities, including swimming pool and common areas
• Overall quality of units, including appliances, furnishings, and cleanliness

“With all the information in one place at  www.dialanexchange.com, our members can rely on the reviews provided by other DAE members to assist in choosing the best holiday for them,” said Mr Green.

“By seeking every members’ feedback when they return from holiday, we will be able to work with resorts much more closely to praise them for what they are doing right, and to work with them if we have any possible issues to address.

“Once established, resorts receiving consistently excellent feedback and reviews will be honoured with a DAE Award of Excellence,” added Mr Green.

The DAE Europe ‘Welcome Home’ campaign is another initiative of DAE’s award-winning customer service provision, with the company winning Best Customer Service at the 2014 Perspective Magazine Awards for the fourth year in a row.

About DAE (Dial An Exchange)
