~Sandals Resorts Recognizes Lancaster Agency, Says Amy McHugh Knows Sandals and Beaches Best~

Sandals Platinum LogoLancaster, PA, 07/22/2008 -Amy McHugh of Dream Makers Vacation Services has earned lifetime Platinum status, the highest level of recognition in Sandals Resorts' Certified Sandals Specialist (CSS) program. She is one of only 75 travel agents in the United States to have earned this status.

Travel agents with a CSS designation have completed a rigorous education and training program - including required visits - that ensures customers that they are expert about all facets of Sandals and Beaches Resorts, the Caribbean's leading chain of luxury all-inclusive resorts. Platinum-level CSS travel agents must report a minimum of 250 traveled bookings.

"I am very proud of this accomplishment," said Amy McHugh, "I earned Platinum status in less than 2 1/2 years-one of the fastest agents to ever earn Platinum status. I was able to do this because I have expert knowledge of all the Sandals and Beaches properties, great relationships with the resorts, and support from the fantastic sales team at Unique Vacations. But most importantly, I treat my clients the way I would want to be treated-like a valued family member. I'll give clients my honest opinion on each resort and match the resort to the individual client's needs. Just do a Google Search for "Amy McHugh Dream Makers" and you will see many unbiased reviews from our clients."

According to Mike Norton, senior vice president of Sandals and Beaches Resorts, training and highlighting the best representatives of the brands is a key strategy for the Caribbean-based resort chain. "At Sandals, our goal is to exceed client expectations every time," said Norton. "And Amy McHugh is an essential part of this effort. She knows the intimate details of each resort and is able to match customers to the perfect Sandals or Beaches for them. We congratulate Amy McHugh on the hard work that brought her here today and wish her and Dream Makers Vacation Services the very best."
