AMResorts Earns Prestigious Recognition by Travel Industry for Excellence

Company Awarded 36 Apple Awards

PHILADELPHIA, PA (Sept. 24, 2015) — AMResorts, an Apple Leisure Group subsidiary, was recognized with 36 Apple Awards in the Crystal and Golden categories. The honors, which included “Best Hotel Chain” for adults-only brand Secrets Resorts & Spas and “Best Staff and Service” for Secrets The Vine, were accepted by company President Gonzalo del Peon and Vice President of Sales, Marketing & Revenue Management Colette Baruth.

Based on thousands of customer satisfaction reviews and travel agent feedback, the Apple Awards measure exceptional customer ratings in quality, service and value.

“These awards underscore AMResorts commitment to redefining the all-inclusive category by offering outstanding service and creating signature vacation concepts that deliver the kind of innovative and high-end product that can change the perception of the segment and resonate with guests,” said Gonzalo del Peon, President of AMResorts. “We look forward to continuing to redefine the all-inclusive sector and deliver the highest level of service at our nearly 40 resorts.”

“Apple Leisure Group is responsible for bringing every two out of 10 North American travellers to the Caribbean. An important factor that helps us deliver this volume of passengers is that we sell the complete experience through our integrated model,” said Javier Coll, Executive Vice President and Chief Strategy Officer of Apple Leisure Group. “This is a benefit for hotel owners as much as it is for our guests, and one of the main differentiators driving strong ROI in competitive destinations like the Dominican Republic.”

In addition to the Crystal Apple Awards for “Best Hotel Chain” for Secrets Resorts & Spas and “Best Staff and Service” for Secrets The Vine, AMResorts properties were recognized with Golden Apple Awards including: 23 resorts throughout Mexico, 10 in the Caribbean and one in Costa Rica.
