When it comes to booking a family group, the secret of success is pointing them in the direction of a resort that can keep everyone in the group happy – both the kids and grown-ups.
That’s why the four-star Oasis Palm Family Resort and five-star Grand Oasis Palm, which are located on the pristine white-sand beaches of Cancun, are hard to beat when it comes to booking family vacations for your clients.
Not only do both resorts offer family suites consisting of two rooms with a guaranteed connecting door – a great option for the larger families and multigenerational groups – but your clients will find entertainment for everyone at the two hotels’ KiddO Zone.
“The Grand Oasis Palm and Oasis Palm are fantastic for families as both hotels share the KiddO Zone, which offers a Splash Zone pool area with slides and a water trampoline, wading pool, pool park with zip-line and the dinosaur-themed Yucatan Jurassic River with its winding pool with games,” explained Pam Bassett, Oasis Hotels & Resorts Canadian business development manager in Toronto.
Families staying at both resorts can bond together while they play in the Yucatan Jurassic River, ride the zip-line or take in an open-air movie at Pirata’s Bay Pool and Beach Park, or challenge each other to video game tournaments in the ancient temple-themed Arcade.
“There’s also the Baby Blue Crab Club, a supervised kids’ club with daily scheduled activities for children between three and 12-years-old,” added Bassett. So while the children have fun, the grown-ups get to relax with style in the adults-only areas.
Also at the Grand Oasis Palm, your clients – both the kids and grown-ups – can enjoy a two-hour ‘Pirate Adventure’ ship tour. There are two tours each week and it’s perfect for both parents and kids.
With such wonderful entertainment options available, it really is no surprise that both the Oasis Palm and the Grand Oasis Palm are such big hits with family groups.
Travel agents can enhance their clients’ trips by registering at www.oasisconnect.ca, where they can download resort maps and hotel fact sheets. Agents can also take advantage of the Oasis’ Bonus Cash program at www.oasisconnect.ca.
“You can make up to $75USD per room booked through any Canadian tour operator when you register,” explained Bassett. “This Bonus Cash is over and above any commission paid by the tour operators.
“You should also check out our travel agent rates of $65 per person per night. That offer is good for two rooms for those agents who want to bring their family or friends with them.”
The only downside? “Be sure to book well in advance especially through the busy holiday and school break periods, as these travel periods can book up quickly,” added Bassett.
