|The Mayan Beach Staff and Family
The staff at Mayan Beach Garden is happy to have our guests enjoy the beauty and hospitality that is part of Mayan Beach Garden. We are however in a remote area of the world and we realize that there are a few amenities that are not available (such as hair dryers and phones) and will go out of our way to make your visit as enjoyable as possible. Just let us know how we can help you.
All of the structures at Mayan Beach Garden have been constructed by owner and builder by trade -- Kim Bales, using tradesmen from local towns. Originally from Seattle, Washington, Kim builds to US building standards for quality and safety, having built multi-unit complexes for many years before coming to Mexico. Marcia used to be a software art director at Sierra On-line (the gaming company) and you will find artwork scattered around the hotel in the form of mosaics, mexican art and handicrafts.
The name Mayan Beach Garden came from their passions. Kim loves Mayan Ruins, Marcia loves gardening and both love the Caribbean (Marcia likes to be IN the caribbean and Kim likes to LOOK at it!)
Faviola is our #1 cook - she is blessed with one of the best natural cooking senses I've ever seen. She turns something usual into something special. She has been with us for 5 years.
And of course there is always Martin - in this picture cleaning lobster. He speaks some English and is learning to be a nature guide. Martin has been with us for 6 years.
|Rafael is our longest existing employee. He knows how to do EVERYTHING. From maintenance to cooking some of our standard meals - to bartending - he does it all with a smile! His English is improving every day -- someday he just might make us obsolete! If only there were two of him! Rafael has been with us for 7 years.
