RIU named the hotel chain with the “Best All-Inclusive Family Experience“ in Mexico by Best Day

  • Best Day awarded the partners who generated the most favourable customer opinions and the best production results in the second edition of its “Travel Awards“

RIU Hotels & Resorts was named the chain that offers the “Best All-Inclusive Experience” in Mexico by Best Day Travel Group. Best Day, one of the most important destination management companies and online operators in Mexico and Latin America, held a national event that brought together more than 180 directors and senior executives of companies related to the country's tourism industry. 

As part of this celebration aimed at expressing its gratitude for the preference of its business partners and suppliers, it held the second edition of “#Travel Awards 2017”, with 27 categories, at which it gave an award to RIU Hotels & Resorts and the company's exclusive “24-hour All Inclusive” service. “It is a pleasure for us to honour our business partners through this award”, said Christian Kremers, CEO of Best Day. 

The All-Inclusive service of RIU Hotels & Resorts awarded in this year's “#Travel Awards 2017” integrates sport, entertainment, games for children and activities for adults, as well as the best gastronomic options. Breakfasting on fresh fruit, freshly baked breads and hot dishes prepared to order; being able to choose from the extensive selection of the buffet or among the varied dishes at its theme restaurants; and having all types of beverages available at all times are some of the privileges of staying at a RIU Hotels & Resorts All-Inclusive hotel. This RIU service enjoys wide acceptance among its customers all over the world, is present in 16 of the chain's 17 hotels in Mexico, and will also be available at the new Riu Dunamar, a resort the hotel chain is opening in Costa Mujeres in December of this year.

The #Travel Awards honours are granted after a careful and detailed selection process by a group of senior executives of the various business lines of Best Day Travel Group. The award consists of a metal statuette with an obsidian base, designed especially for this event, that makes reference to the “#” “Hashtag” symbol, which is readily identifiable in the online world.
