Good To Be Back In Orlando

January 18, 2022

Dear friends.

There is much beauty in Winter, with so many activities enjoyed by what this season offers; snowmobile adventures, downhill skiing or a more relaxed cross-country version, skating and various winter festivals.  This is also the time of the year when many Canadians look forward to their Vacations south of the border. And justifiably so.

I am writing you today from a beautiful property in Orlando. This well known resort in Bonnet Creek offers the ultimate in what Vacation Ownership is known for. Every room is spacious and complete with all the amenities you would expect from a first-class Resort. From the moment I checked in I was impressed with their attention to the safety of all their guests and personnel. I have travelled to many Resorts that offer Vacation Membership programs in the last 30 years but it always feels like the first time when you arrive at a new property.

The difference from a regular hotel or even personal home rentals, is the attention to details. As most guests are members of either this property or an affiliated one, you are treated as an owner from the moment you check in. “Welcome back” is the standard greeting as they treat you as the most important guest on their property. Every precaution is in place to give you comfort with regards to the still ongoing Pandemic. All staff are wearing protective masks; there is proper distance indicators everywhere; even plexiglass between agents and guests. 

During check-in they took the time to explain to me in details all the safety precautions that the resorts has in place including a very in depth room sanitizing. I felt comfortable and ready to enjoy my stay.  

The Canadian Resort and Travel Association recognizes the efforts that most Vacation Membership Resorts have in place to give comfort in safety to all their guests. These are practices that meet the highest standards established by the World Health Association. These are standards that the average hotels or private rental homes do not always abide by as they are not regulated the same way. 

I am here on business but when time permits, I can comfortably enjoy the many amenities with confidence that all precautions have been addressed at the highest level. This is where Resorts have the upper hand over standard accommodations

These are different times as the ongoing Pandemic still rages on worldwide. However, one can still travel safely thanks to the high safety standards in reputable resorts in Canada, USA, Mexico and the Caribbean. You can reach us anytime at [email protected] if you want references to a particular property. 

Wishing you pleasant and safe travels 

Kindest Regards
