What a delightful and talented person…
Question: How long have you worked at Presidente InterContinental Cozumel Resort & Spa?
Question: Why did you choose to learn the violin over another instrument?

Is couples therapy right for you? ( Four Questions to ask Yourself)
Are you willing to take responsibility for your role in the conflict? Each person has a role to play when conflict arises in a relationship. The willingness to see how each individual contributes to the problem is crucial to being able to find a solution. Keep in mind that issues of abuse are a different matter entirely.
Are you willing and able to commit to the time and financial and personal investment to see therapy through? Therapy is hard. There is the 50-minute appointment, but also the drive to and from the therapist’s office to consider. The therapy hour needs to be a priority for each individual, and may require special arrangements, including child care or leaving work early once a week.Therapy also is a financial expense, particularly if paid out of pocket. If the funds are not available, it may make sense to delay treatment or find help at a low-cost clinic or other resource. Community mental health centers and churches often provide marriage counseling for a free or reduced rate.(Continue Reading…)
What makes a hotel “boutique”?
There are lots of companies that claim to specialize in boutique hotels. For many, a boutique hotel is simply one that’s not part of a national or international chain and that distinguishes itself by its design, location or additional features. Many hotels aspire to be a boutique hotel without actually achieving it. Overall, there are four main elements to the true boutique hotel:
Large hotels can be cool, trendy and chic, but they can’t be boutique. Just as the word is used to describe small, design-led specialist shops, so it applies to hotels. Hotels that apply the term “boutique” to themselves or have it ascribed to them are usually small – certainly less than 50 rooms and in some cases with only one or two. Their size contributes to the atmosphere and service that characteristics a hotel with a difference. Whilst size might count in terms of the number of rooms, it doesn’t follow that those rooms must also be small. In fact, a hotel than could easily accommodate 20 rooms might choose instead to create just ten, but make them spacious and luxurious, catering to the boutique market. (Continue Reading…)
Five great reasons to stay in a boutique hotel
Boutique hotels are usually in enviable locations. A townhouse right in the middle of the city, a chateau in rural France or a stunning beach retreat in the Maldives, boutique hotels exist to provide you with the very best location for your holiday. City hotels are in prestigious shopping areas, next to great restaurants, within a stone’s throw from the theatre or stumbling distance from the top nightspots. They provide a retreat in the middle of town where you can wind down, rest your weary feet and take advantage of the staff’s outstanding local knowledge. Alternatively, chill out on a private beach, where your bedroom doors fold open onto the sand and where you can snorkel without seeing another human being. Or just take in the countryside from a castle on top of a hill.
If you want to experience real design, choose a boutique hotel. More than a few art-deco ornaments or modern art in the foyer, these hotels have design running through their core and it is a pleasure to stay somewhere that’s been designed and decorated with an eye for detail and finish. From the accessories in the bathroom to the china in the restaurant, everything is design-led, without being design-conscious. (Continue Reading…)
