A New GM at Bonaire’s Plaza Beach Resort

By: Caribbean Journal Staff - July 14, 2016

Another leading Bonaire hotel has named a new general manager.

The island’s Plaza Beach Resort has appointed Marcel Brekelmans as its new general manager, who succeeds outgoing GM David Rietveld, who had served for almost three years in the role.

Rietveld had overseen the transformation of the resort into Bonaire’s first all-inclusive property.

“In the past week I have gotten to know Marcel as a manager who is able to switch quickly. He has wide knowledge of international hotel operations, which will certainly benefit Plaza. So, I have no problem leaving the resort in his capable hands,” Rietveld said of his successor.

The move comes as the hotel has a number of changes planned, from relocating the reception desk at the property to the addition of a new restaurant and bar.

“I will also be responsible for the realization of the new development in the former villa island across the airport and completion of the sustainability project,” Brekelmans said.
