Apple Leisure Group (ALG) has released an update on its expansion in Mexico, the Caribbean and Europe for the first half of 2019. The first half of the year saw the company’s AMResorts subsidiary sign six new resort management deals and celebrate the opening of its first European property in Spain.
AMResorts currently has 66 all-inclusive resorts in its portfolio with an additional 23 branded properties, representing nearly 9,000 rooms, in various stages of development. The development pipeline will increase AMResorts’ available room inventory by 40 percent, ALG said.

Europe Expansion Update
In Europe, AMResorts recently celebrated the grand opening of the Secrets Mallorca Villamil Resort & Spa, the first Secrets-branded property in Spain. To commemorate the delivery of the new property, which is in Paguera, in the Calvià municipality of Mallorca, the ALG Europe team held a celebration hosted by Alice Campello, model, influencer, and wife of the Atlético de Madrid player Álvaro Morata.
The 162-room property, which held a soft opening in May, underwent a renovation that refreshed all of its guestrooms and suites and added two sunrooms, including one reserved for Preferred Club guests. Select suites also now have access to a new, exclusive swim-up pool.
Looking ahead, ALG said that AMResorts plans on delivery more than 2,500 rooms by the end of the year. In 2020, the company will open the Secrets St. Martin Resort & Spa and the Dreams Macao Beach Punta Cana.
