We booked our Fujairah diving holiday from Canada using Travel Action. The experience was stress free and the results were enjoyable. Working with Paul was a real pleasure. He took the time to plan the exact holiday we wanted and everything came together nicely. Thanks for a great holiday.
Holiday supplied by Travel action. The Gran Bali Hotel in Benidorm. Flights by Easy jet all on time. Transfers from airport to hotel and return to the airport, all on time supplied by local Spanish company via travel action all ok, driver polite and helpful. Third floor double room, clean and tidy with everything working and very nice. Staff at hotel mainly Spanish but tried to be very helpful with the understanding of English. Overall the Hotel was being cleaned most of the time and looked very clean all the time. The rooms were cleaned daily with the maids being pleasant and helpful. The food was mainly local good quality food with lots of alternative English food on the varied menu. The All Inclusive drinks were readily available and I was satisfied with the bar staff. The few minor dislikes. You could get a sandwich at the bar when restaurant was closed, but you had to pay for a doughnut cake. You could only get the free drinks at one bar at a time, meaning that if you were in one bar you had to walk to the other end of the hotel and back with your drinks, only to find your seat had gone. The other thing was the queue for the drinks was endless. If you were a heavy drinker, Eater, Sleeper and worshiped the sun this is the place for you. If you were going for the entertainment and liked Spanish music you were also ok, but nothing in the way of English music or things to do during the day and up to 9 PM. You had to find your own entertainment. Our Travel expert was paul who seems to find that special Holiday with Very good prices. We have been to several parts of the world all booked with Travel action. I hope you can do something with this.
Coconut Bay Resort, St Lucia, 16th to 28th Dec 2012.
We had a really great time and came home much refreshed and in good cheer.
We really enjoyed the resort, which was perfect for our needs. It is only a few minutes from the airport; the resort provided a shuttle bus (so no need for a taxi). The resort was well maintained, comfortable and well designed to accommodate the different target groups of guests. The food was good and varied; the resort made a good effort to provide entertainment which was appreciated. The staff were professional, kind and friendly.
The kite-boarding worked out well, despite the winds being generally light. The water-sports center was run by four fun Portuguese guys (close to my home town), so we got on really well and they were great. They made a real difference and helped me enormously improve my skills. My other half, who does not kite-board, enjoyed the spa, gym and tennis courts. The facilities at the resort were generally satisfactory although the experience would have been enhanced had there been mountain bikes been available and more/better yoga classes.
The flights from Gatwick are really convenient for us, although next time we would probably book transatlantic flights with BA (to ensure through passage from Jersey). It was not a problem this time as we both had stop overs in the UK and the weather was not inclement. The journey going out to St Lucia was great as the plane was relatively new so the seats were comfortable and the entertainment system current. The flight back was not so good. Older plane and the seats were uncomfortable and the entertainment system poor. The food on Virgin is inferior to BA. Even the breakfast on the short BA flight to Jersey was far superior than that served on Virgin.
All in all a really great holiday at a reasonable price (for the time of year) and we would certainly consider going again, with and without friends or family and using Travel Action.
I started with flight bookings, which were always perfect and have graduated to holidays. Just giving a brief outline of what is desired and Travel Action come up with accommodation, flights and transfers together with special extras with regard to making the holiday a bit special. Nothing is ever too much trouble. They have my wholehearted support and recommendation.
I have bene using Paul for a number of years and this srvice has been exceptional. My requirements have always been fulfilled without any hesitation. Paul goes the extra mile to make sure that your trip where ever you choose to go is beyond exceptional. I have recommended all my friends and family to use his invaluable expertise.
I was given the task to book a trip to celebrate the successes of some of our staff. I was so pleased when I found Paul to help me. He quickly got the measure of what we wanted and unobtrusively led us through all the stages to the booking. The trip was a huge success. I have also been very impressed by Paul's help on a couple of things since the trip - he answered my requests for information with the same attentiveness as prior to the booking. Well done, Paul - you have definitely got it right ! Gill, Workmates.
Paul has been fantastic and arranged the best holidays in terms of location, quality, value for money and professional but friendly help and service. Have recommended to family and friends and to anyone reading this.
Travel Action always manage to find the perfect holiday for us. We give a brief description of what we are looking for, ie; beach, short transfer.... And they give a list of suitable holidays for choice... Suits me perfectly! The lazy holiday looker :).
I have used Paul at Travel Action numerous times over the last few years, to book family holidays with firms such as Mark Warner, Neilson, Club Med and Crystal. The service I receive is second-to-none. One call is all it invariably takes and everthing is sorted - kids clubs, spacious accommodation, and everything I want from my holiday. I only use Travel Action and will continue to do so.
