Always happy with the service I receive from Miles and the team at DialAFlight. I asked for a recommendation for a luxury all inclusive hotel in Mexico and Miles suggested The Royal Hideaway in Playa del Carmen and this hotel exceeded our expectations. We look forward to booking our next trip with DialAFlight.
