Aww.. Thank you and Muchas Gracias!!
I am so honored to have been chosen to participate in the naming of the new suite. It was fierce competition I tell you! I am VERY lucky to have won.
I must thank Hacienda Tres Rios for the bonds of friendship that were made between the competitors. I would also like to thank all those who worked so hard to make this promotion such a success, the competitors, our friends and family, those who supported each of us in our efforts to have our suite name chosen.
I can hardly wait to keep my campaign promises! I will be tweeting live, taking loads of photos, sharing the secrets of Chef Oscar’s famous Yucatecan cuisine as well as the bartender’s specialty drinks.
Be sure to follow us all on Twitter and Facebook!
Thank you Hacienda Tres Rios, I am counting the days 🙂
Thank you Stephanie! We are looking forward to having you stay at our resort!
Stephanie, You are such a gracious winner. All contestants had a great time I could tell by comments and blog posts. It was fun also, from me, just a regular follower of Hacienda Tres Rios and the travel industry contestants. I would love to see more of these friendly, but competitive contests from H3R. I also hope to one day see for myself the beauty of the resort in person, but will live vicariously through the blogs and photos from the contestants…. for now. Congrats Steph!
Thank you Maria for your wonderful comments and for being such an active Hacienda Tres Rios fan! We will definitely be having more contests in the future, and we welcome your ideas!
I agree with Stephanie, I am thankful for the bonds of friendship made between the competitors. Congrats to everyone and a special thank you to Hacienda TresRios for assembling the star studded cast and providing the prizes.
I have had the good fortune of staying at the resort once before and look forward to returning again in the future. Great place and glad to learn the resort significantly increased its ‘fan base.’ It’s hard not to appreciate a resort focused on luxury and sustainability. A toast to green ( & turquoise) travel.
