He gets things fixed fast, no fuss, no drama, earning him the undisputed title of the â€œYes I Can, Guruâ€ for Aruba and San Martin, as he is in charge of the IT needs of the Radisson in St. Martin, as well. Maikel greatly helped the UltimateBet Poker Tournament, and generally helps out at all departments, no job too big, no job too small,â€ Lourdes added.
