Celebrating 38 years with Royal Resorts

Meet Mirna Pech our dynamic Executive Housekeeper who is celebrating 38 years with Royal Resorts in Cancun.

Originally from the small town of Sotutá in the state of Yucatán, Mirna began her career at The Royal Cancun in the early days of the resort when it was known as VCI. Only 15 when she started her first job as a maid assigned to the villas in building 5, she learned quickly on the watch of Doña Pilar Quintal, the first Royal Resorts Housekeeper.

The years passed and Mirna worked her way up the corporate ladder as a Maid Supervisor, Assistant Housekeeper, The Royal Caribbean Housekeeper and finally Executive Housekeeper for the Cancun resorts in 2002. She now manages a team of 447 employees in the Housekeeping and Laundry departments. She is supported by a management team that includes her assistant, the Housekeepers at The Royal Sands, The Royal Cancun and The Royal Caribbean-The Royal Islander and the Laundry Manager.

Mirna loves her job and says, “I have been with Royal Resorts for more than half my life, but it doesn’t seem like that. How time flies when you enjoy your work! Royal Resorts is a great company and I am proud to work here. In the early days of Royal Resorts, the Developers instilled a spirit of community and friendship at The Royal Cancun that still endures today. We have a philosophy of excellence and attention to detail, which we reinforce with teamwork, constant training and a belief in the value of every employee. I think that our work environment is unique and that we transmit its warmth and friendliness in the hospitality that we offer.” She adds, “Our members that return year after year are our beloved friends and part of our family and I thank them for their trust and preference.”

On the subject of professional growth, Mirna is grateful for the opportunities that she has had at Royal Resorts and says: “I learn something new every day that I can implement to improve the services we offer. In recent years, I have been involved in the company’s green program. We are looking for ways to protect the planet and conserve natural resources and the steps we have taken to date in the Housekeeping and Laundry department include changing many of our procedures and substituting many of the cleaning products we use for environmentally friendly alternatives.”

Mirna ‘s enthusiasm and commitment has spread throughout her department. She really is a distinguished member of the Royal Resorts family.

We are sure that you will join us in congratulating her for her years of service.

Welcoming you home year after year

Mirna is not alone in her long years of service. Many other Royal Resorts employees have been with the company for more than 10, 15, 20, 25 and even 30 years. Some are the waiters that greet you with a smile, ask after your children and bring you your favorite cocktail; others are gardeners, bellboys, maids, security or Front desk staff. Others work behind the scenes in Maintenance or accounting and some even work in the Merida office. Wherever they are, they are part of the Royal Resorts Family and dedicated to making each vacation even better than the last.

Beach Hopping in the Riviera Maya, Xcacel

Discover picture-perfect Xcacel, a spectacular palm-lined bay in the Riviera Maya with untouched reefs festooned with sponges and sea fans in shallow water just offshore and a secret cenote.

A track leads from the highway through the forest, mangroves and a coconut palm grove to the beach. Once you have taken in the spectacular views of white sand and sparkling turquoise waters, don your mask and flippers and get ready to explore Xcacel’s coral gardens. As you explore, you’ll spot parrot fish, pork fish, blue tangs, butterfly fish and sergeant majors, and you may be lucky enough to see spotted moray eels and turtles.

After a spot of snorkeling, bask in the sun or go for a stroll along the beach and visit the cenote hidden in the mangroves. Peaceful and breathtakingly beautiful, this is a place to celebrate nature.

Due to its importance as a turtle-nesting site, the Quintana Roo state government designated it as a turtle sanctuary in 1998, thus protecting it from development. There is a turtle camp at the site and volunteers patrol the beach at night during the summer on the look out for nests. Recent sightings of other rare creatures such as deer, ocelots and the nocturnal jaguar in the Xcacel area have led to pledges to boost protection of this natural treasure.

Contact tourdesk@royalresorts.com for more information or ask at the Thomas More Travel desk in your resort.

Whenever you go snorkeling or diving, please rinse off suntan oil before going in the water as it is harmful to marine life. Wear a white t-shirt to protect your skin from the sun instead.

Go off the Beaten Track in the Yucatan Peninsula

Have you ever wanted to go further afield and explore more of the Yucatán Peninsula during your Royal Resorts vacation? A world of wonders awaits discovery beyond the spectacular beaches of Cancún and the Riviera Maya and Thomas More Travel offers private tours with a vehicle, driver and guide so that you can see more of the area at your own pace and leave the driving to someone else.

How about spending the day in the Yucatan’s colonial twin towns and Pueblos Magicos (Magical Towns) Valladolid and Izamal? Both are rich in history and traditions and surrounded by cenotes, archaeological sites and haciendas.

Head for Merida, capital of the Yucatan for a couple of days and use it as your base for exploring the southern part of the state. Tour the Puuc Route, famous for the ancient city of Uxmal and the smaller sites of Kabah, Sayil, Xlapak and Labna, all sharing UNESCO World Heritage status. Visit some of the restored haciendas in the area and the Loltun Caves. You can return to Merida via the Convent Route, a chain of villages with colonial churches, caves, cenotes and archaeological sites that starts with Mani and includes Mama, Teabo and Acanceh.

Alternatively, turn your sights south from Cancun and the Riviera Maya and head for central and southern Quintana Roo. Discover the ancient Mayan sites of Muyil and Chacchoben, the historic towns of Felipe Carrillo Puerto and Tihosuco in the Zona Maya or the Caribbean fishing villages and dive spots of Mahahual and Xcalak on the Costa Maya.

Further south is spectacular Bacalar, the Lagoon of Seven Colors, state capital Chetumal and the archaeological sites of Oxtankah, Kohunlich and Dzibanche.

For an unforgettable trip into the wild, visit the ancient Mayan capital of Calakmul in southern Campeche, designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its monuments and the biodiversity of the jungle protected by the vast Calakmul Biosphere Reserve.

Contact Thomas More Travel for more information about private tours and sightseeing itinerary ideas.
