We share a copy of the report published by the newspaper ‘The Reporter’ where the Operations Manager of the Playa Mazatlan Beach Hotel, Lance Vient, talks about the Schwartzes & Dillinger Families during their visit in Mazatlan.

My name is Lance T. Vient. I am the operations manager for the Playa Mazatlan Beach Hotel, as well as, the fourth generation of family members to the owners that is operating the hotel.

Over the last several years the hotel has had the opportunity to host wonderful guests; four years ago when I came on board for this position I had the opportunity and honor to meet some of these guests, and in most cases have been able to make friends. Very few though have made me feel as honored as the Schwartz family (Steve, Lori and Eddie).

After meeting them a few years back I feel like they are family to me, as well as, the Dillingers (Steve, Rene, Shelly and Tom).

After many experiences together we have built a genuine relationship and even have fun on a daily basis with banter amongst us. As I am sure you know, Steve Dillinger is quite the personality, not only for the State of Indiana, but as well for the hotel and hotel guests, he and Steve Schwartz, have provided me with unforgettable memories and experiences that I can only share with them while in Mazatlan, and particularly at the hotel.

Steve and Lori Schwartz mentioned that they would like to submit a picture while in Mazatlan as to “peeve” Dillinger, and I was the first to jump on the band wagon to accomplish this goal. There is not much I like more than keeping Steve Dillinger on his toes, as well, the group he recently brought down to us.

I feel honored that we can host such a repertoire of political personalities from your city and state, and feel blessed to be able to count on them as friends as they work with us, to spread the world about our little known paradise.
