The Season for Giving Continues

Just as uplifting as the Breakfast with Santa was at Sirenis Punta Cana, the season of giving continued with a BreakfaDSCN6476st with the Three Wise Men at Grand Sirenis Riviera Maya.

As part of the annual event, children from the Akumal local public elementary school were invited to spend the morning at the Caribbean resort to enjoy a delicious meal, games and fun as well as receive gifts that were donated by SPT co-workers and even members!

The event started early in the day when the hotel’s transportation bus arrived at the local town of Akumal to pick-up the children and bring them back to the resort.

The breakfast was hosteDSC_5027d at one of the resort’s themed restaurants open exclusively for the kids; and the space, lit up with gleeful decorations, was alive with holiday cheer as the children participated in activities created just for them by the hotel’s animation team.  Taking a picture with the three wise men was the highlight of the day, as well as the children dance competition!

“To put smiles on the children’s faces is priceless.  We, at the hotel, begin preparation for this event months in advance and we do it not only to help out our community, but also to share in the excitemDSC_4898ent ourselves. In the end, it was hard to tell whether it was the hotel staff or the kids who felt the most joy that day!” said Vanessa Costa, Director of Grand Sirenis Riviera Maya.    

The Breakfast with the Three Wise Men was a gratifying experience for both children and adults, and this year was the best yet! It is a pleasure for hotel staff to welcome students from the wonderful community that surrounds them.  We already can’t wait for next year!
