- Eight of the area’s hotels received Golden Apple Awards, four received Quality Assurance awards and two of the destination’s resorts were numbered among the top 60 family-friendly hotels in Mexico.
This month some of the most important tour operators in the United States announced the winners of the awards their companies give to the best performers in the global tourism industry. As they do every year, the Riviera Nayarit’s hotels received their share.
“These awards position the quality of the Riviera Nayarit’s hotels higher on the international stage,” said Marc Murphy, Managing Director of the RivieraNayarit Convention and Visitors Bureau. “There’s no doubt being recognized by Apple Vacations, Delta Vacations and Family Vacation Critic motivates the hotels and considerably increases the trust place in our Destination by the end consumer.”
