The week opened with a short spiritual service and a plentiful breakfast prepared by the chef and his kitchen brigade, and served by the executives and management team.
On Tuesday, the department hosted an outing on the beach, with BBQ music and dancing. Then Wednesday featured Olympic Games in the conference room, and while the games were played a chair massage was made available, with a professional therapist, to pamper the housekeepers further.
On Thursday, "Adopt a Housekeeper," paired members of management together with the diligent housekeepers. Going from room to room, the managers did their best to keep up with the housekeepers as they cleaned rooms and hallways, and also helped out in the laundry.
On Friday, housekeeping enjoyed karaoke in the conference room and the housekeeper with most guest mentions, Nicolasa Ventura, received a weekend stay gift certificate!
The week generated a lot of fun and goodwill and acknowledged the many important contributions made by members of the housekeeping department.
