RCD Hotels taps Duetto for 2 properties in Mexico

When the Nobu Hotel Los Cabos opens, it will have Duetto’s GameChanger application to simplify the pricing process.

RCD Hotels is partnering with Duetto to have better forecasting insights and drive more revenue at its two newest properties, Hard Rock Hotel Los Cabos and Nobu Hotel Los Cabos.

RCD Hotels initially will install Duetto at five total properties, including the Eden Roc Hotel Miami Beach and Nobu Hotel Miami Beach. They will implement Duetto’s GameChanger application to simplify the pricing process, ScoreBoard to simplify their reporting process and BlockBuster to simplify their group business contracts.

Lourdes Ancona Valdes, corporate director of revenue management at RCD Hotels, said in a statement her team was looking to partner with a forward-thinking technology company that would team with them to develop strategies and product features specific to the all-inclusive market.

Hotel Optimization Part 3 | January 27, 2021

With 2020 behind us and widespread vaccine distribution on the horizon, the second half of the new year is looking up, but for Q1 (and most likely well into Q2) we’re very much still in the thick of what has undeniably been the lowest point of the pandemic. What can you be doing now to power through and set yourself up for a prosperous 2021 and beyond? Join us at Part 3 of Hotel Optimization – A Virtual Event on January 27 from 10am – 1:05pm ET for expert panels focused on getting you back to profitability.


Two specific features will strengthen RCD Hotels’ all-inclusive revenue strategy: the ability to yield per-person rates and the ability to forecast demand up to five years into the future. While traditional urban hotels have shorter booking windows, all-inclusive properties are often booked further than a year in advance and therefore need better visibility into demand beyond 365 days.

RCD Hotels opened the first all-inclusive Hard Rock property, the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic, and continues to grow its investment throughout the Caribbean and Latin America.

The 639-room Hard Rock Hotel Los Cabos marks Hard Rock’s fourth Mexican destinations. The 200-room Nobu Hotel Los Cabos, the first Nobu Hotel in Mexico, will represent a new and differentiated luxury product in the market.
