The company, after all, features nearly 170 hotels and resorts in the country’s top tourism destinations.
A Case Study in Success
An All-Ages All-Inclusive
“Each of our brands has its own standards, meaning we have from the very upscale to the more economic class,” said Rafael Lizarraga, chief commercial officer for Grupo Posadas, adding that brands are oriented to both domestic and international markets.
“Everything is related to elements and senses,” he said. “When you visit any of our Aqua properties, you’ll immediately perceive a unique aroma that helps you relax and become involved in the Live Aqua experience.”
The Live Aqua urban properties in Mexico City and Monterrey operate under the European Plan (EP) and feature cutting-edge business services and meeting facilities, while the Cancun and Playa del Carmen properties are all-inclusive. All are geared toward an adults-only crowd seeking luxury and sophisticated design.
These larger properties feature facilities for both leisure and business travelers and are located in urban settings and coastal resorts—the latter serving as an excellent option for higher-income families and multigenerational travelers looking for beachside getaways. They’re also fantastic for destination weddings that include guests of all ages.
The Puerto Vallarta and Los Cabos Grand Fiesta Americana properties are all-inclusive, while the Vallarta is adults-only. Sample rate for the Grand Fiesta Americana Coral Beach Cancun, which operates under the EP plan, is $288 per night in a junior suite.
Fiesta Americana’s all-inclusive properties are popular with middle- and upper-income families for their many services, facilities and locations on some of Mexico’s best beaches. They are also good choices for multigenerational destination weddings.
Designed with the modern business traveler in mind, these EP hotels offer services such as business centers, meeting rooms and A/V equipment in more than 60 locations, both inland and in resort areas.
“These hotels offer a very good price/value relation with concierge services, 24-hour room service, a full-service gym and, in some cases, pools,” Lizarraga said.
Sample rate at the Fiesta Inn Cancun Las Americas is $110 per night for up to three adults in a room.
The second of Grupo Posadas’ business class brands, Gamma was added in 2014 and provides franchise opportunities for local independent hotels that meet the company’s standards. There are 12 properties in the portfolio. Sample rate at the Gamma Plaza Ixtapa vary from $40 to $79 per night for a superior king room, double.
One is the budget traveler’s best friend. The three-star self-serve brand is well suited for clients looking for a no-frills vacation, weekend getaway or business trip. Locations include large cities like Guadalajara and Mexico City or such seaside resorts as Cancun and Acapulco.
A sample rate at the One Cancun Centro in Downtown Cancun is $50 per night for a superior queen double room, including breakfast.
