Marriott International has unveiled plans to boost its property portfolio in Mexico by almost 300%.

The five-year plan comprises the introduction of 29 Mexican hotels under the Marriott banner.

Marriott's existing portfolio of hotels and resorts in Mexico will be bolstered by 20 Courtyard by Marriott properties.

The group has also signed an agreement to manage the 250-room Puerto Penasco Marriott Resort on the Pacific coast, and has entered into a separate agreement to manage the 450-room JW Marriott Milla de Oro Resort & Spa and the 150-room Renaissance Milla de Oro Resort, both of which are scheduled to open in 2011.

It has also signed a development agreement for five to ten franchised hotels under the Marriott banner.
