Thompson Playa del Carmen will obtain the “Queer Destinations Committed” distinction
This certification allows the hotel to position itself as a safe and friendly option for the LGBTQ+ community
Thompson Playa del Carmen has sought to create safe and inclusive spaces for its guests, which is why it joins the hotels that, with the support of Queer Destinations, will be certified as an inclusive hotel and as a safe and friendly option for the LGBTQ+ community.
This process begins with the Educational Program called "Hospitality meets Diversity", a course on the Queer Destinations e-learning platform with updated statistical data, interviews and real cases relevant to the LGBTQ+ community. This space aims to create a safe environment for the discussion and training of professionals with doubts about the LGBTQ+ community, their consumption habits and how to receive them in the appropriate way. This differentiating factor allows the hotel to have its human capital trained in the attention and service of travelers in the segment and where a process of awareness and training of all collaborators is carried out.
“We are very happy to have the “Queer Destinations Committed” certification that endorses us as an inclusive hotel. For us, the comfort and safety of each of our guests is paramount, and by having this distinction, we can raise awareness among our staff and educate ourselves as collaborators of Thompson Playa del Carmen to offer the best experiences for the LGBTQ+ community,” said Jorge González, General Manager of Thompson Playa del Carmen.
For his part, the CEO of Queer Destinations, Oriol Pàmies, has been enthusiastic about the work that Thompson Playa del Carmen is doing to obtain the distinction and position itself as a safe and friendly option for the LGBTQ+ community.
