Excellent service from Dylan as usual
DialAFlight deliver what they promise. Abbie is always helpful and goes above and beyond to ensure all our travel needs are met.
DialAFlight are the best and Reece you have booked 2 trips for me this year both without any issues so thank you for always providing excellent service.
Thank you team, and massive appreciation for Jessica. Everything went smoothly as usual. Roll on next year
Vincent, the driver that picked me up to and from the airport was very professional and on time.
Callum explained the holiday and hotel accurately to the point it exceeded our expectations. Will definitely use your company again!
Ryan was amazing. Thank you for all your help. Very much appreciated
Ryan who we use regularly is certainly an asset to DialAFlight. I recommended some 20 people and all enjoyed the experience.
The Bodyholiday, organised by Troy was simply superb. Loved the holiday. All went smoothly ….clear instructions, flights on time, private transfers organised via Troy were on time, clean, with AC and such lovely drivers and the room and hotel experience were even better than our previous visit (only place ever revisited ). Also the app on my iPad is great for further info such as links to online entry customs forms to save time and check in.
All very good. Helicopter transfer had to wait for a long time in hot cafe and was not private. Road would have been quicker
Great advice, package put together leaving everything covered. Great communication and follow up prior to trip. Overall excellent service from Jessica. Will definitely use again
Great holiday. Everything went smoothly
Our only disappointment was that the transfer was not a BMW. We were collected and taken back to the airport via a minibus.
Zac provides fantastic service at all times
Excellent value for money package arranged to suit our needs.
Olivia was great, very helpful
The Hotel Rendezvous was excellent in St Lucia. Ross and his colleagues did a great job in finding the hotel, booking the flights and transfers. It was one of the best holidays we have ever had
DialAFlight were helpful during the flight booking process and provided updates by phone and email. Excellent service and we will use DialAFlight for our next trip
Thanks as always to Ralph Summers. I always recommend DialAFlight to family and friends and I will soon be booking a trip to the USA this summer.
Toby was wonderful
As always, many thanks Dylan Harris for all your help and support.
Great help finding our holiday - excellent support to book what we wanted and follow through to ensure we were organised to travel
I loved the personal service and the phone call before my flight to make sure everything was OK. Brilliant
Marshall put together the perfect holiday to St Lucia for us. Will definitely return to DialAFlight
Paul Jones provides an excellent service. I couldn’t ask for more.
Amelia did a great job yet again
Very well organised itinerary and a great holiday
Great customer service and support from Saf Patel - great app for ease of checking in and itinerary view. Will definitely recommend and use again
Harvey Edwards was excellent
Amazing hotel, service, food and everything excellent.
I have happy childhood memories of family holidays in St Lucia, so when I got engaged to Chloe I really wanted to take her there. I knew she would be bowled over.
The Sandals Resort was the perfect romantic place to stay. The 'no-kids' rule gives it a very chilled-out vibe and makes it ideal for a couples holiday.
NEW TO SANDALS
Our resort, Sandals Grande St Lucian, has new over-the-water bungalows with glass floor panels that allow you to look down into the sea. They also have outside hot tubs, over-water hammocks and the services of a butler who can organise restaurant bookings, serve an in-suite champagne breakfast or arrange a picnic.
I began to wonder how I'd managed all my life without my own butler. I always set out on a holiday intending to relax completely, but soon get restless. A great attraction here is the amount of activities available: canoeing, sailing, snorkelling, windsurfing, water skiing, aqua-triking, paddle-boarding, scuba-diving and kneeboarding, to name a few. For the less energetic, there are swim-up bars in five pools.
And as guests of Sandals Grande St Lucian we could use the amenities at its other St Lucia resorts, Regency La Toc and Halcyon Beach.
From the airport it took about 90 minutes to get to our resort; it must be the most scenic transfer in the world, through forests of banana trees with stunning views of sea and mountains.
SPOILT FOR CHOICE
Our resort had no fewer than 12 restaurants - plus access to the 15 restaurants at the two other properties. Chloe may be a model but she doesn't seem to have to worry too much about her diet. Both of us love Asian food - particularly sushi - which is available at a top-notch new restaurant called Soy.
We also loved the Indian restaurant Bombay, serving what I suppose you might call a posh curry -fabulous.
OUR NEW ROUTINE
We quickly settled into a daily round of eating and enjoying a little sport. We both snorkelled while I also had a go at water volleyball, playing with American guests. Chloe was on the sidelines to cheer me on.
Stand-up paddle-boarding has become our favourite holiday pastime: Chloe is a lot better at it than me, being more nimble and lighter and with better balance. We also loved the spa - a massage was wonderful for a shoulder injury I suffered recently.
The night-time entertainment impressed us. We really liked Arthur and his band, who performed hit after hit. After a few drinks everybody would be joining in a great singalong. It was great talking to him about music and bands - we've been in touch since we came back.
I resisted the temptation to get up and perform. After a couple of drinks I lose any bit of a singing voice that I have. It's a running joke. On my last birthday, we booked a really cool room with a karaoke machine. When I had my go, following a few drinks, I sounded like one of those X Factor contestants who come on and people laugh at!
WAKE UP TO SEA VIEWS
Our greatest pleasure was our over-the-water bungalow. It was a thrill to open our curtains every morning and gaze out over the sea. We spent a lot of time peering through our see-through floor. At night it's surprising how many fish you can see - there's a light you can turn on and there they are. It's wonderful.
We had two butlers, Michael and Karen, and they were incredible. Michael's a massive Manchester United fan, and I'm a big Chelsea fan, so we had a lot of football chat.
Chloe's favourite part of the holiday was splashing around in the sea and looking for good places to take photographs. Taking pictures is a big part of the holiday: Chloe has 250,000 followers on Instagram and I think I've got about 450,000.
The biggest challenge all the time is taking pictures that we're both in - I use a ten-second timer which means I have to dash from the camera to get in the right position: I rely on Chloe to make sure I'm in the right place.
We have thousands of photographs - memories to look at when we get older, including those of St Lucia.
