“I was part of your recent FAM to Copper Canyon and just wanted to thank the Balderrama Hotels and Family for their hospitality and making available this great trip. The Canyon is the best kept travel secret and your hotels are the vehicle to experience this wonder. I was fortunate to get to know several of your employees while at the Santa Anita and on the trip. Ana Elia is has a very good knowledge of the area and was a pleasure to get to know her. Armando was friendly, very helpful, a tireless worker and a great advocate of the Hotel chain. Bellboy Abraham was attentive and very helpful with information about the Los Mochis area. These employees are a great asset to the Balderama Hotels. Thanks again for including us through S&S Tours.” B.S.
