Punta Brabo — Manager Luigi Heredia, recently joined his top performers for breakfast at the Water’s Edge Restaurant, Costa Linda Beach Resort.

Heredia thanked his team members for going the extra mile in 2016, and helping the property obtain high rankings on search engines and in social media. “It is my pleasure,” he said, “to recognize terrific individuals who make considerable contributions to our business every day. They fulfill their professional obligations to the resort and connect in very meaning ways with our guests, who are valuable, multiple-time repeat visitors to the island.”
Costa Linda Beach resort recently celebrated its 25th anniversary, having been open since November of 1991. As one of the island’s biggest timeshare resorts Costa Linda enjoys popularity and prosperity and is currently developing the much-anticipated, Frangipani suites, five additional units on the ground floor, featuring 3 bedroom/3 bathroom and 2 bedroom/2 bathroom luxury accommodations.
Heredia who has been at the resort for over eight years reports that his company, Royal Resorts Group

As manager of the year, the highly professional and supremely qualified Miriam Rodriquez, won top honors, and a round of applause from her peers.
The official part of the morning as Heredia presented his team with tokens of appreciation was animated by a group of enthusiastic and cheering guests who came in right off the beach to support the winners.
They also joined in to express their gratitude to two special team members, Rossy DeVeaux, Water’s Edge Restaurant, and Alfredo Cornet, RMH Security Service, who are not directly employed by the resort but spend much time caring for guests and looking after them.
Both Heredia and Leitch agree that Rossy and Alfredo are tremendous assets to their operation, as they provide guests with a genuine and heartfelt connection to the island and its people.
