The Royalton Hicacos Hotel has been in every battle and always in the front line,» said Amaurys Echevarría Ruiz, secretary general of the Trade Union Bureau.
«The members and the Board of Directors want to convey our most sincere congratulations, first of all to those who from the first day had to scrape the floor to remove the mixture and paint, to those who cleaned the windows, to those who founded this paradise with their love and affection,» he posted on his social network Facebook page.
He also thanked those who «passed through here and left their footprints and are no longer with us. To them, wherever they are, we send our most sincere embrace.
The union leader of the facility dedicated heartfelt words to the managers and employees of the hotel managed by the Cubanacán and Canadian Blue Diamond chains, who «today remain in the work trench in the midst of adverse conditions and get up every day to give their all so that we continue to be a benchmark in the tourism industry».
He expressed that «it has been 21 years in which we have been like a big family. Our greatest challenge is to maintain what we have achieved and to continue to be preferred by our clients. Together we are going for more,» said Echevarría.
«We are committed to give the maximum in this tourist season that will begin in November, aware of the responsibility we have with the country’s economy,» he said.
