When the Gran Melia Puerto Rico is introduced in Rio Grande, Puerto Rico, on May 1, its website will be ready. THAT Agency constructed the www.granmeliapuertorico.com website in CSS (cascading style sheets), a table-less form of HTML. CSS allows for seamless graphic and text integration creating "e;clean"e; web development and design.
"e;The Booking Engine was built using Ruby on Rails technology,"e; said Bill Teubner, President of THAT Agency, "e;and the reservations systems was altered so no reservations can be made before May 1."e; Ruby on Rails technology is an open source web framework for developing database back web applications.
THAT Agency will also be managing the Gran Melia Puerto Rico's monthly SEO efforts.
Gran Melia Puerto Rico was previously the all-inclusive Paradisus Puerto Rico, but the hotel has been improved and will convert to a traditional European Plan resort. This transition is the result of changes in Puerto Rico's marketplace and parent company Sol Melia's expansion of the Gran Melia brand into the Americas.
