Adventure Inn owner Eric Robinson, founder of Adventure Hotels of Costa Rica (AHCR) in 2005, has done it again.The Costa Rica hotel association, Adventure Hotels of Costa Rica recently increased membership from 22 to 64 hotels strategically located throughout Costa Rica. Each value-priced hotel meets minimum 3 star requirements, has it’s own eco-friendly personality and offers all guests a further 10% off their nightly rate if they mention the association at check-in.
And what an extraordinary selection of interesting hotels AHCR has; inns, lodges, beach resorts, B&B’s, first-class tent camps, mountain and sea view villas, historic city hotels, surf schools, yoga and wellness retreats, jungle cabinas, volcano accommodations, adventure safari outposts, even an airport hotel (Adventure Inn), something for everyone. The owners of each property take pride in their originality and the comfort of their guests.
AHCR has printed twenty five thousand easy-to-read large useful high quality Costa Rica road maps pin-pointing the location of each member hotel. You can get your free road map at any member hotel, who will encourage you to support the association by staying with another member, wherever you are going in Costa Rica.
AHCR also has an easy to navigate website www.adventurehotelsofcostarica.com with a Costa Rica map on the home page locating each member hotel. Click on any hotel and go to a full page with photos describing the hotel, and a further link to the Costa Rican member hotel’s own website. This way visitors wishing more information about any hotel or to make a reservation can deal directly with the hotel. You can ask for a beach front room, or extra pillows, an early check-in to a late check-out, laundry, luggage storagea room with a breeze or by the pool, pre-arrange a car or tour, or have a bottle of chilled champagne awaiting you in your roommaking any specific requirements known and saving money by eliminating the need for agency commissions.
AHCR has been moving forward establishing committees to work on car/hotel packages, plus a reality survivor road rally by turning couch potatoes into participants, and a charity committee intent on giving back to the local community.
In this uncertain economic global environment, non-profit AHCR may be pointing the way to future hotel marketing, where hotels work and survive as a team, using self-reliant strategies to market their hotels.
