Grand Residences Riviera Cancun Appoints Daniela Trava Albarrán as New Onsite Manger of the Luxury Resort

CANCUN, MX. August 28, 2017 – Grand Residences Riviera Cancun®, the leading luxury resort in Riviera Maya, has just announced the appointment of Daniela Trava Albarrán as the new Onsite Manager of the resort. Albarrán’s fluency in Spanish, English and Portuguese as well as knowledge of the Riviera Maya area, as a native to Mexico, allows her to provide insightful inspiration to her team to create an unforgettable experience for each guest.

With more than 17 years of experience in hospitality service from leading resorts and destination consultant agencies, Trava is able to bring a unique set of skills and insight to her role at Grand Residences Riviera Cancun.

Social Media: Engagement is Key

There are currently 2.3 billion active users of social media networks and savvy hotel operators have incorporated social media into their marketing mix. There are a few Goliath channels on which one must have a presence (Facebook & Twitter) but there are also several newer upstart channels (Instagram, Snapchat &WeChat, for example) that merit consideration. With its 1.86 billion users, Facebook is a dominant platform where operators can drive brand awareness, facilitate bookings, offer incentives and collect sought-after reviews. Twitter's 284 million users generate 500 million tweets per day, and operators can use its platform for lead generation, building loyalty, and guest interaction. Instagram was originally a small photo-sharing site but it has blown up into a massive photo and video channel. The site can be used to post photos of the hotel property, as well as creating Instagram Stories - personal videos that disappear from the channel after 24 hours. In this regard, Instagram and Snapchat are now in direct competition. WeChat is a Chinese company whose aim is to be the App for Everything - instant messaging, social media, shopping and payment services - all in a single platform. In addition to these channels, blogging continues to be a popular method to establish leadership, enhance reputations, and engage with customers in a direct and personal way. The key to effective use of all social media is to find out where your customers are and then, to the fullest extent possible, engage with them on a personal level. This engagement is what creates a personal connection and sustains brand loyalty. The February Hotel Business Review will explore these issues and examine how some hotels are successfully integrating social media into their operations.
