We have experience managing a small hotel in Colombia while the owners were away on vacation for a few weeks. We greeted, checked-in and checked-out guests. We helped visitors find tours, transportation and fun local activities to enjoy. We also purchased groceries and cooked breakfast for up to 14 people. We worked well with the hotel staff to resolve the daily issues that come with an active hotel and kept guest satisfied.
