Before Image (via the Wayback Machine):
What: Hotels Villas El Parque is a resort in Costa Rica that was looking to put together a site that showed off the beautiful scenery as well as captured the attention and reservations of potential customers.
Using large background images and keeping a strong focus on the imagery that the client provided we wanted to give a good sense of the experience of Costa Rica. I put together some PSDs that really showed off the beauty of the scenery and the rooms that are available to stay in.
We incorporated custom post types to handle the rooms and created a custom reservation service that allowed folks to reserve their rooms online. The ticketing system then posted to a widget on the WordPress dashboard to make it easy for the client to see upcoming reservations and folks that still needed a call to finalize.
