Hi Allen,
When I was at the Elements last May with Carla, we loved your welcome basket. The pineapple was so good, made alot of salsa with it.
I would add some fresh local fruit and take out the popcorn, also your idea of a local map is really good for newbies.

Hope to see you again soon.
MJ

You know what are better though, and are easy to find in Playa? Those Haribo gummi alphabet letters. They are especially good if you put them in the fridge.

That sounds perfectly reasonable and amazingly consistent.

I like the idea of the fresh fruit. The only hassle is preparing the baskets ahead of time and then having the fruit go bad. We could of course just buy the fruit weekly and add it in, but as of right now we'd like to prepare tons ahead of time and then have them ready to go. The KISS principle - keep it simple and stupid

I like the map idea! Even if it is just a "what's in the vicinity" type of map.

How about aloe gel for all the sunburns people get? Or how about little aspirin packs? (not sure if they sell them down there).

Perhaps add a coffee filter as sometimes there is not one in the condo, sunscreen and a beach towel advertising your business (one size fits all). a Foofy body scrubber to go with the bath products.
I always thought it would be a good idea for a property management companies to offer specialty kitchen items, that most rentals do not offer, bakewear, large pots, servewear, spices, juicers, mixers, etc.
