Marriott’s collection of Caribbean and Latin America resorts launched “Paradise Perks,” a new incentive program for travel agents.

After earning the “Paradise Elite” designation, travel agents can earn free night stays for their personal use, as well as exclusive offers and promotions, a designated resort account executive and a specialist at each resort to assist with processing clients’ VIP forms and any other requests.

Paradise Elite agents will also receive automatic entry to Marriott International’s incentive programs, including “Dollar Days” and “Book and Stay,” and priority in sold-out situations.

To qualify, travel agents must book six qualifying reservations within six months at the eight participating Marriott Caribbean and Latin America resorts: Aruba Marriott Resort & Stellaris Casino; CasaMagna Marriott Cancun Resort; CasaMagna Marriott Puerto Vallarta Resort & Spa; Frenchman’s Reef & Morning Star Marriott Beach Resort; St. Kitts Marriott Resort & Royal Beach Casino; JW Marriott Los Cabos Beach Resort & Spa; Grand Cayman Marriott Beach Resort; and JW Marriott Cancun Resort & Spa.
