I just recently returned from the brand new 5 star All Inclusive Adult Only Secrets Vallarta Baya in Puerto Vallarta Mexico. My wife and I had a great vacation! At the time of check in I was made aware of a new program that is being offered by Am Resorts called “Unlimited Connectivity” which is a really cool free App you can download after check in to stay connected to friends and family back home. Below is the Am Resorts Press release announcing this new feature. For me it worked great and as of right now this App is available at the Secrets Vallarta Bay, the NOW Amber resort in Puerto Vallarta and the Secrets the Vine adult only resort in Cancun.
PHILADELPHIA, PA (March 27, 2012) — AMResorts, provider of sales, marketing and brand management services for Zoëtry Wellness & Spa Resorts, and Secrets, Dreams, Now and Sunscape Resorts & Spas, announced today the launch of its new, interactive Unlimited-Connectivity® app. Now available for the company’s most recently opened properties, Secrets Vallarta Bay and Now Amber Puerto Vallarta, the innovative app will be rolled out to all AMResorts brands and resorts by the end of 2012. The free digital application developed by AMResorts and Telmex, a world leader in communications, is accessible for mobile download to iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, Android, Blackberry phones.
Unlimited-Connectivity® allows guests to stay connected and communicate with family and friends back home using the app-to-app calls feature to call local and international (U.S. and Canada) phones and send messages over the hotel’s Wi-Fi network without incurring any international cell phone roaming charges. Guests also can create user profiles using their email, Facebook or Twitter accounts to contact staff directly, tailor personal deal preferences, book spa appointments, reserve excursions and be just a click away from information about dining, amenities, resort activities, local attractions and much more. Users can register the app with their room number, allowing them to instantly view their folio and request hotel services.
“Understanding our guests’ needs is a priority for AMResorts and innovating is our motto. That is why we know the importance of convenience and of staying connected while on vacation,” said Alex Zozaya, president of AMResorts. “This tool enables our guests to achieve that connectivity without the concern of excessive roaming charges, while simultaneously allowing us to customize their vacation experience to better fit their needs.” The easy-to use, cost-saving app registers as a room extension so guests can send and receive calls throughout the property as if they were in their room.
