My Background

Having spent the first 6 years of my career in the travel industry in various capacities, my wanderlust may have not been present in my work as a technology sales executive or a non-profit fundraising executive, but it was always in my heart. I have now gone back to my true passion... travel and the art of creating amazing travel experiences. Working with Largay Travel enables me to leverage my personal experiences, the experience and expertise of my colleagues and the incredible worldwide Virtuoso network to create incredible experiences for my clients.

Atlantic City - Cape May Fall Trip

By: Big Lou


Reviewed on: 11 Oct 2014

Amy did a great job in planning and arranging our trip to Atlantic City and Cape May. It was my first trip to the area for a very long time and it was my wife's first trip there. Where Amy had us stay was the best place to be in Atlantic City. Cape May is such a nice place especially in the fall, there weren't many people there during the week. The weather was pretty good and was able to swim in the Ocean, fish and kayak and even walk to the top of the light house. Dining and drinking locations were great. It was a great trip -vacation. I will be asking for Amy's help again in the future and suggest that people do the same.

Thanks Amy, All the travel arrangements went off without a hitch....and I credit you with the upgrades and ease of getting late checkouts at all 3 hotels during the business trip...I won't go to China again without your help. Jay

We used Amy even though our trip was small one, just a long weekend, and had never used a travel agent before. We are so glad we did as she was able to get us better flights and a room upgrade for the same cost if we had used one of the online travel websites. Add in the travel book with pre-printed transfer vouchers and a bottle of champagne waiting for us in the room from Amy made it even better. Also, the security of knowing if anything had gone wrong we could call her was a weight off our mind. We were able to go and enjoy the weekend with no worries, and it was even better than we had imagined. Will definitely use her again for our next trip, wherever it may be!

My Husband and I just returned from Punta Cana on a 25th Wedding Anniversary trip. Our Travel Advisor, Amy Rectenwald, made all of the arrangements and it was wonderful! All of our needs were anticipated and taken care of ahead of time. From our private shuttle to and from the airport, upgrades at the resort and the special attention that was paid to us by the resort staff. Amy was able to make our Anniversary trip more special than I could have ever made it by booking myself! I will be using Amy for all of our travel needs from now on!! Thanks Amy for a fantastic experience.

Melia Caribe Tropical Punta Cana was as beautiful as we had hoped it would be! The workers are so pleasant and really want to make the guests happy. The only down side was lots of seaweed on the beach the first several days we were there due to storms but the workers cleaned it all up and for our last few days the beach was beautiful! The staff does not speak much English, some speak better than others. I would highly recommend this resort and please look into The Level, Adults only section at the Melia. That is where we stayed and loved it!!

Amy was able to take our vision and make it a reality. She took time to listen to what we were looking for and worked with us to come up with the perfect itinerary. She communicated with us throughout the process and was genuinely interested in ensuring we had the perfect vacation. The personal notes we found at our first hotel, expressing her gratitude and well wishes were a pleasant surprise! We have rarely used a travel agent in our travels but would definitely use Amy again and highly recommend her to anyone planning a trip.

Incredible Experience From Start to Finish

Our recent trip to San Ysidro Ranch was perfect in every way. The little "extras" that we were able to enjoy - thanks to Amy's thoughtful planning - really put the whole weekend over the top. Amy knew that this was a surprise birthday weekend and made sure that EVERYONE at San Ysidro Ranch did too. They really made us feel special - like we were VIP's - and I don't think we would have received such special attention if not for the Amy/Virtuoso connection. There's no way I would book a trip like this in the future, without going through Amy first!

Words cannot express our gratitude and heartfelt thanks to Amy Rectenwald! With our busy schedules we were very thankful for her help with planning our vacation to Costa Rica. From the time we contacted her to start planning our trip she was on top of everything, working with us to help plan a much needed and fun filled getaway. From the second we landed at Liberia airport until the second we left Miami for home, everything was arranged and taken care of. The excursions she organized for us were absolutely top notch. The resort we stayed at was Phenomenal!! She knew just what we were looking for. The best part was that we didn't have to think or plan while we were there, everything was all set to just go and enjoy. Amy went above and beyond our expectations with everything, and now we have memories that will last a lifetime. This experience would not have been possible without her!

Wow! Who knew only one night could feel so rejuvenating?! We decided to book the Casa Del Mar in Santa Monica for one night - a bit of a "stay-cation" for us, since we only love a couple miles away. But we had a 40th birthday party to attend, nearby, so we figured, "Why Not?" Thanks to Amy and Virtuoso, a one night hotel stay turned into nearly an entire weekend. The Casa Del Mar upgraded us to an Ocean View room and gave us early check-in AND late check-out. This hotel is AMAZING and the extral-special treatment we received, thanks to Amy, made even better. Can't wait to explore more Virtuoso properties!

Stuck in Dallas

I had the "pleasure" of travel through Dallas/Fort Worth airport onto another destination during the ice storm of February 2015. I was stuck with cancelled flights going to and again on the return trip. Amy Rectnewald worked endlessly, even during a small personal vacation of hers to help me re-arrange flights, find hotels, and offer advise on what to do. She was my go to person when I was in trouble. I would definitely recommend her to anyone. Good job Amy. JB

Amy did a great job putting together our trip to Italy. She worked within our budget, offered great tour and itinerary ideas, and found great air and lodging for us. Amy was available at almost anytime, and willing to spend time answering our questions and getting back to us with information in a timely way. She was also available via text during the trip. See Italy tour guides were on time and matched the itinerary Amy put together spot on. Traveling abroad was so much less stressful when everything was arranged and paid for ahead of time, and we had no worries! Thank you!

This was our first trip planned by Amy and we will be back! She is a pleasure to work with, thinks of all the details, gives lots of options but doesn't overwhelm you and even had purchased a bottle of wine and had it placed in our room with a nice note...what a great way to start the trip. Our trip was to Club Med Sandpiper Bay, Port St. Lucie, FL. It is a great place for groups or families. Couples may be overwhelmed by lots of kids. There is an adult pool with a hot tub where you can regularly watch dolphins so it's a nice escape from all the action. Like all Club Meds this is an all inclusive food and drink resort. The food was better than expected; we went to Club Med in Cancun last year and the food was pretty darn bad. One other highlight about Sandpiper is that it has golf, tennis and lots of other fitness activities. The most important thing about Amy is that she is such a nice person and makes the planning process fun and easy, thank you Amy!

Arizona Spring Break Excusion

Amy was very helpful in planning our first trip to Arizona. We had some ideas about where we wanted to stop but she helped organize the itinerary, lodging and excursions. Due to some personal preferences we made some last minute changes but in the end we had a WONDERFUL Time!!! It was REALLY AWESOME That Amy was able to get us rooms inside the Grand Canyon National Park which was very late. As these rooms fill up 12 months in advance she was able to secure TWO rooms with only a few months Notice. The Westin Kierland is Scottsdale is a wonderful resort and being our last stop was a great spot to take a well deserved relaxing 3 days!!! Thanks again and looking forward to our NEXT Trip soon.

We booked a trip to Cancun/Maya Riviera last November. Amy suggested the Hard Rock Resort, since we had a 12 yr old, 17, and 19 year old. It was awesome. She took care of every detail, and all we had to do was get on the plane. That makes for a relaxing vacation! She set up extras for us and we had champagne and an xbox waiting for us in our adjoining rooms. We also had resort points which we used to take an amazing family photo that I'll cherish forever. We've now booked another trip - Rome/Florence Italy - this summer and can't wait to see what awaits us there!

Amy did a fantastic job of providing recommendations and options for our Alaskan cruise. Our travel circumstances were a little different do to my husband's use of a manual wheelchair. Amy investigated excursions and accessible accommodations that made the trip less challenging.

She had a great deal of patience with us, as we did not have definite plans or a desired hotel chosen. She checked into things and got us the very best deal that I couldn't have found. We were able to check in early to our hotel and had a lovely personal thank you note from Amy upon arrival. After a fun first day of sightseeing, we return to our room to an extra special surprise, chocolate covered strawberries and a note to enjoy our stay from Amy. This is going above and beyond what is ever expected, shows her personal attention to detail and her clients.

Honest Review from a Non Disney Fan

Reviewed on: 15 Sep 2017

My kids (13 & 16) had been pushing hard for a Disney Vacation. We have been before years ago and I swore I would never go back. The crowded parks, pools, lines, everything about it rubbed me the wrong way. I consulted with Amy about any sort of compromise we could come to that would give my children the "Fun Disney Experience" they were craving and allow my husband and me a relaxing, low-stress vacation... A formidable request... I'm happy to report she pulled it off in Spades - She booked us at the Four Seasons, arranged all of our park-hopper passes and stuck with me during the months prior to our stay alerting me of all the deadlines/opportunities/all that frustrating Disney stuff that has to be done in advance. The Four Seasons was the key to this successful venture - A beautiful, uncrowded and spacious resort. Kids enjoyed / We enjoyed. So many amenities. Food was incredible. Best hotel we've stayed in the U.S. Thanks to Amy, we will probably return to Disney.

We received excellent service upon arrival at the Hershey Hotel by all of the staff. Our stay was wonderful, the lowers at the hotel were absolutely gorgeous, the hotel breakfast was delicious (and included in my package), we did some shopping (another bonus with my package) and enjoyed our stay in one of my favorite places. Thanks so much to Amy Rectenwald for her friendly and efficient service. I would highly recommend her to anyone for any type of trip, large or small, personal or business. This trip was just overnight and she made sure it was perfect.

Honeymoon Review

Amy helped my husband Mike and I plan our honeymoon in October-November 2017 and choosing to work with her was one of the best decisions we have made! Amidst all of the wedding planning craziness, it was SO nice to have Amy on top of the honeymoon. Amy is patient, extremely responsive, kind, dedicated, knowledgeable, easy to talk to and an overall pleasure to work with. She planned for us two unforgettable weeks in Cabo San Lucas at the Resort at Pedregal and One & Only Palmilla and every single day was absolute perfection. The amenities we received through Amy/Virtuoso were great - spa credits, breakfast daily, upgrades upon arrival, etc. It was truly a stress free and enjoyable experience working with Amy and we will certainly not be planning any future travel without her! Thank you, thank you, thank you, Amy - you are the BEST in the industry! We are forever grateful for you and we will never forget our magical honeymoon. We absolutely recommend her to any and everyone!!!
