Diversity, a challenge or just good fun?

Diversity-Video-Lives-HereRunning a place like Cortijo El Guarda we have the opportunity to meet all kinds of persons, which is one the facts that make this life so interesting.

It reaches out from that single partner at a global law firm, to the former player of the French national soccer team and his family, or from a Dutch(!) flamenco dancer, to a group of 10 women that we will receive later today. And all this in one week.

Guest diversity is of course a challenge to us as guests with different back ground have different wishes that we have to deal with. For example: our Spanish guests find our 20.00 o’clock dinner time impossible to adjust to and the pool fun for a child might be less fun for the adult who’s lying next to it.

Coming back to groups, we have had quite a lot of them, mostly renting out the whole Cortijo. Like the Belgian cyclists who love their bikes, as long as their sport doesn’t interfere too much with their eating and drinking activities. We also welcomed the members of a fraternity who spent their annual long weekend with as men do, with food and drinks ‘good’ movies and the occasional visit to Andalusian cultural highlights. So very different to their female counterparts that we had shortly before that, this was all about ‘happy to be together again’ and ‘let’s share some emotional thoughts’…

So challenging? May be, but in the same time a different situation on almost a daily basis and great to be part of one of the best parts of people lives: holidays.

Let’s see what the coming days bring.


About The El Guarda Posts

We are a Dutch couple - Miranda and Hans - that has after having searched for a small hotel to buy in several countries around the world we came across El Guarda and fell in love with it straight away. We would love to share our excitement for the place and its surroundings with our guests and invite you to stay with us for some days when travelling through gorgeous Andalucía.
