Joining the Team

Ohlsson portraitFor all of you regular mid March guests at Abbey Two you may recognize these two familiar faces, Ken and Audrey Ohlsson from White Rock, BC whom we have affectionately referred to as the Crazy Canuks in previous posts. We are proud to announce a new business partnership between Tiff and Abby and Ken and Audrey now that the Ohlsson’s are the happy new owners of the Abbey del Sol One property. Not to worry everyone, our business won’t change except to get better and better. Ken brings his very successful business experience to the table and Audrey is the internet marketing wiz. Look to her Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and other online sources for more about the business as it grows. Tiff and I are so pleased; we couldn’t have found a better couple to add to the family. Ken and Audrey really understand the “Home” team spirit of our business. Here is to a great future for Abbey del Sol!

And who would have thought that the fun and fabulous group that was with us beginning in March of 2009 would be the joining our business today.  You just never know what the future has in store so treat every day like St Patty’s Day on the beach:

New Restaurant opens in Puerto Morelos

In November our manager, Efrain (Jin) Ceballos, and his brothers Andres and Freddy, opened a fabulous new restaurant, El Sabor de Mexico, on the main boulevard of our adorable little town. Charming decor and great tasting food with the flavors of Oaxaca, the foodie state of Mexico. Stop and give “The Taste of Mexico” a try. Authentic Oaxacan hot chocolate and spicy Molé sauce just to name two.

Welcome to a old friend in a new role

Many of you will recognize our new, part-time office staff, Fernando Mendoza.  Fernando lives in the little house next to the Abbey Two back building that has been affectionately called “Abbey Tres” for many years since guests occasionally stumble into his front yard looking for Abbey del Sol.  Fernando has lived in our town and the Cancun area for over 30 years.  He is a gifted massage therapists that Abby sees regularly when she is in town.

In October we asked him if he would be willing to join the staff as a office fill-in for Nancy when she goes to lunch or has her day off.  Since he is so familiar with the town and area and speaks excellent English he has been a welcome addition to our staff.

The Great Sofa Switch

Returning guests to Casa Anita will notice a nice, new, much more comfortable sofa bed in the living room. We moved the pretty but not so comfortable sofa bed that was there into #4 at Abbey del Sol One to replace the elderly futon that was the spare sleeping spot in the front hall.  The custom made woodwork on the former Anita sofa looks just lovely in the hallway of #4 and it is in a place where people never use it to sit on.

New Chef at The Little Mexican Cooking School

Since so many of our guests LOVE the day long cooking class at The Little Mexican Cooking School I wanted to introduce the new Chef, Alfonso Lopez de Alba. Alfonso’s first lesson was his favorite Oaxacan menu, with an awesome mole dish assembled like Lasagne. He is busy writing up new menus for the winter’s classes. Even if you have been to the School before you should go again. Alfonso is a whole new view of Mexican cuisine. Chef Pablo, the former chef, can be found at his restaurant next to the bookstore, El Nicho, with all his wonderful flavors and dishes.

New spruced up back yard at Abbey del Sol One

We added the pretty paving blocks to the back patio at Abbey One. No matter what we did we just couldn’t get the grass to grow. It is much easier to walk on and keep clean now. Jin is busy figuring out the flowers and plants to add. We’ll have some professional photos taken in a few weeks._DSC0017

Fresh and Relaxing new decor in Abbey del Sol One apartment #3

See the post below for the new look in apartments #1 and #2. Here are my (not so great) photos of #3. _DSC0007The color is greener and the fabric is a lighter brown on the bed runner but at least you get the idea. It looks so nice and modern now.
