I always try to like the facebook pages of any smaller boutique hotels I plan on staying at during our travels. This way I can often make a connection by liking and commenting on posts that the hotel makes. Preceding a recent trip to Italy, I watched the posts for our hotel on the Amalfi coast. One day they posted a picture and phrase as a contest to see who could figure out the answer first. I quickly figured it out and posted the answer. I was heartily congratulated and received a 10% discount for our stay there. But the best part was on arrival, we were greeted like royalty with smiles and laughs and "you are our winner!". After photos with the reception staff, we were escorted to our room where a nice "certificate" and gift of lemoncello awaited us. Try this trick. It worked for us similarly in Belize for a fun reception.
