Hawaii Honeymoon Trip

By: Mr snd Mrs C

Reviewed on: 29 Jul 2015

Amazing honeymoon trip booked by Carlos! We went to Hawaii for 2 weeks and did a 3 island hop. No problems with any of the bookings - air, hotel, car rentals and activities were all confirmed and prebooked ahead of time with a printed voucher for each booking- very convenient! Hotels that were selected were beautiful, clean, and quiet and the suggested activites were a lot of fun. Great customer service, very patient and provided great advice and travel tips, answered any and all questions. The travel documents were very organized and clearly labeled...fool proof! Amazing!! Suggestions: we sat in front of a closet on first leg of the trip going to California - very uncomfortable and squished (less leg room due to the closet behind us and couldn't recline the seat). I'm not sure if its possible to see the plane layout before you book seats - but if it is, I would prevent anyone from sitting in front of a closet if possible or perhaps at least let them know ahead of time. Will recommend!

great trip

The Collingham Gardens in London and the Bonham in Edinburgh were different but both very, very nice. They both satisfied our needs. The staff at both establishments could not have been more accommodating. They were wonderful. The Collingham Gardens was two blocks away from the Tube station and many good restaurants. It was in a lovely residential area. The Bonham was in a beautiful old building with an exquisite view of the city from our very luxurious room--it also was in a quite area. I would highly recommend the train ride from London -Edinburgh, the scenery is amazing. i would recommend taking a later overseas flight so the wait to get into your hotel room would be shorter. The staff at the Collingham in London found us a room while we waited for ours to be ready. That made it just perfect! Thank you Carlos--great trip! .

Excellent overall experience

The trip was great and everything Carlos mentioned was true. Unfortunately it rained for the majority of days, but we had a great time nonetheless. The resort was beautiful. The only mine complaint would be it was difficult to determine which sections of the beach/restaurants were open to us and those of Melia members only. Thanks for everything. Will call you when we plan our next trip.

Planning our vacation with Carlos was pleasant and helpful. He kept us informed and offered suggestions via phone calls ans emails. He followed up with the Hyatt to make sure we received everything that was included in the Virtuoso vacation plan. We are very satisfied and would be pleased to work with Carlos on our next vacation. Thank you, Joe & Margie

Carlos was very helpful in planning our trip. He gave us many options for resorts, all of which met the criteria we'd given him. He advised us well about trip insurance, possible hazards in the area where we traveled, and transportation options. When we'd made our decisions for the trip, he booked everything quickly and perfectly. We had an amazing vacation, and everything went smoothly because of Carlos's advice and expertise. We will definitely call Carlos next time we're traveling!

The Palms in Turks and Caicos was beautiful. It met all of our expectations. The staff was friendly, the grounds were clean and very well maintained. Our room was very nice and the bed was comfortable! We would definitely go back. I would not hesitate to recommend this place again.

As always Carlos was terrific . He has put together many trips for our family and all have been amazing . This particular trip we traveled to "Jackson Hole " Wyoming for a winter / ski vacation . The house Carlos recommended to us was unbelievable! It exceeded our expectations . The house was at the end of a coldesac and turned out to be ski-in ski-out . It was immaculate and simply put a beautiful ski home.We will be returning ! Thank you once again Carlos for another trip of a lifetime... The Del Guercio's

Carlos was wonderful

This was my first time booking a trip using a travel agent. I had spoken to some in the past, but the process never progressed past initial meetings. I am so happy that we spontaneously stopped by Bayside Travel that day and met with Carlos. Carlos was professional, approachable, and dependable throughout the entire process. He was also punctual and thorough. He did a tremendous job planning our vacation, as well as communicating what to expect and what to do in case of emergencies. Everything went perfectly, and I was never left with any questions. We will absolutely use Carlos's help planning future trips. I will also refer him to friends, as well.

Carlos was professional, helpful, and very easy to work with. I started planning a trip with no specific destination and Carlos was able to take my "asks" and figure out the perfect destination - Barbados! Our trip was well planned and we didn't run into any hiccups during our travels. The recommended resort was beautiful and couldn't have been more enjoyable. I would recommend calling Carlos to anyone planning a vacation.

Jackson hole 2018

Once again Carlos was terrific . Our family has been dealing with Carlos for years now and each time our travel and destination arrangements have been superb! We will not go to anyone else because Carlos has grown to know exactly what we like in a trip. Last year we took an impromptu trip out to Green Bay to watch th NY Giants vs. Green Bay Packers in a playoff game . The short story is we never made it do to a snow storm. As always, Carlos had included travel insurance in our itinerary and our entire trip was reimbursed.. These are things the average person doesn’t take into account when planning a trip and probably not the average travel executive . Carlos is not your average Travel Executive you will not be disappointed !! Thank you again Carlos for another unforgettable trip . The Del Guercio Family
