As usual, professional helpful staff
Michelle as fab as ever!
Please let the airline know that they need to improve the diabetic meals. It is not only sweet things that need to be reduced but also the amount of carbs.
It was all very good, the room, the meals, and the facilities, including the beach and the service there. We had a good discount for the pool out of action, which did not affect us greatly. The pick up at the airport was rather casual with an old vehicle, but the return was fine.
Great work Gordon and team.
Gordon Hibbert, as ever excellent service
The only slight issue we had was when we arrived in Barbados there didn’t appear to be the private transfer there for us …no one was holding a DialAFlight board up. We eventually got it sorted
We will be using you again.
Flights and hotel really good. Had to get a room upgrade at Sandpiper - but no extra charge.
Everything worked like clockwork. Your local rep was excellent
You always look after us very well
Always a brilliant service
Your service is outstanding and I will be using you again
As always DialAFlight delivered. Recommend to everyone - especially Curtis who knows EXACTLY what we want
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
Holiday was wonderful but would not go back to Accra Beach Hotel. We were told to ask for upgrade when we got there, as we has stayed twice before, they did not oblige. The room had no balcony and was tired, needed upgrading.
As always can rely on DialAFlight for worry free travel arrangements.
Great hotel, location and the staff were very friendly
Would always trust you to make life easy.
Telephone calls answered swiftly. Staff members courteous and knowledgeable.
I have been using DialAFlight for a few years but had not been away since before the Pandemic. Just used the company again and the standards and customer care is still the same. Excellent!
Keep up the good work.
Had a great trip. Hotels were good standard. All arrangements went smoothly
It was my first time booking with DialAflight and it was a great experience. Thanks to the team for making sure I checked in and asking if I need any help. I will be definitely booking again
Julie Harris is very helpful and keeps in touch
Simple, easy professional. A pleasure to do business with.
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.
The House has gone all inclusive which is a big change. But the property Is in need of updating. Sunbeds were a problem as with 100pc occupation there simply not enough. That apart it was a really good break and the all inclusive option certainly helped control the cost on what has become an expensive island.
It had been a long time since I had the chance to visit St Lucia and I was looking forward to it. Happily, I wasn't disappointed. It was my annual break - the one I take following the final of Strictly Come Dancing and before the start of the Strictly tour.
St Lucia is one of the Caribbean's loveliest islands. It's very lush, with much of it covered in rainforest, home to rare plants and animals including the delightfully named whistling frog and the wonderful St Lucia parrot.
What attracted me to The BodyHoliday resort was that there are so many things you can do - a variety of activities are offered by the hotel, with a daily programme of complimentary body treatments in the Wellness Centre and an unbelievable array of sports, all set in gorgeous scenery.
There are also excursions you can take from the island - to St Vincent, for example, or you can take a catamaran cruise to the Grenadines, which is fantastic. I did both on a previous visit and loved them.
I'd also enjoyed a trip to St Lucia's La Soufriere volcano, all sulphurous smells and primeval jungle - it felt like a scene from Jurassic Park.
This time I was looking to recharge the Tonioli batteries. I like my annual break to include brief outings, lots of good things to eat, some exercise and a couple of books.
For a start, the hotel's location was perfect: it is in a stunning spot, near to where they filmed the movie Dr Dolittle with Rex Harrison.
St Lucia has become very fashionable in recent years and The BodyHoliday resort is one of the Caribbean's leading all-inclusive spa resorts.
But the big surprise is that the resort is such good value. It's unbelievable what visitors get for their money. What makes it even more attractive for me is that it's largely an adults only place: we all love children, but sometimes you need a break from them.
Unusually for me on holiday, this time I kept fairly busy - going to the gym regularly, enticed by the prospect of classes in zumba, aerobics, yoga, spinning and the services of a personal trainer. Fitness--wise, you name it and they have it here. And it's all free of charge.
One of the big events at the resort this year is Jive June. It's being held from May 29 to June 26 and will introduce guests to the Cuban cha-ch-cha and salsa, the fiery Argentine tango, the Caribbean merengue, American jive and the energetic Colombian zumba - a whole month devoted to dance.
The resort says it is hoping to inspire more people to take up this amazing exercise and have some fun. There will be 19 daytime dance--fitness classes during the week plus three themed dance evenings led by guest presenters - Latin Night, Step By Step Dance Party, and Rock 'N' Roll Night - as well as a weekly zumba party and beach party.
But while there are lots of organised events, all free of charge, you don't have to join in. You can just relax in the sun and have lots of treatments.
I had an amazing four-hand Ayurvedic massage, which was beyond belief. I also enjoyed an oxygen facial, aromatherapy, and a foot and hand massage.
I spent 12 days at the resort but the time went by in a flash. Having been to the Indian Ocean a number of times recently, it was interesting to see how the Caribbean compared with a destination such as the Maldives.
While I love the Maldives - I don't think there is anything there like this. It is a completely different type of vacation: relaxation mixed with the feelgood factor you get from exercise and different therapies.
You could eat healthily at every meal, but you didn't have to - there are five restaurants and you can choose from a very wide range of good pasta dishes if you want to. I don't have lots of carbs very often, you know, because my body is a temple!
I'm very toned but I don't totally exclude carbs - I had a couple of pizzas there, which were lovely. But most of the time, when I'm away in the heat I eat grilled fish and salads. That's all I want.
They also have the most amazing juice bar. I used to have a daily ginger, turmeric and carrot juice, but you can have any combination you want.
And my holiday reading? Robert Harris's Dictator, the concluding volume of his Cicero trilogy. It's brilliant and I also gave a 'Ten' to the latest J.K. Rowling/Robert Galbraith thriller Career Of Evil, which was very good indeed - and a 'Ten' to the BodyHoliday resort, of course.
